SOURCE: the cable that spins the trimmer head is broken on

That cable can be purchase at any good Lawn Equipment dealer. Sometimes they have to be cut to length,so take the peices with you.
U can save a little by installing it yourself.

SOURCE: i have a homelite f2020 series petrol trimmer i

I use 50:1 with Sthil 2-stroke oil in ALL my 2-stroke equipment. This ratio does not smoke at all, and does not foul plugs.

Never had a problem yet. At this mix ratio, you can also use it in 4-stroke engines, which means you only need 1 fuel can on site. Also eliminates the possibility of using the wrong can to fill the trimmer.

Check your fuel filter if you have one, normally they will be located in the fuel tank.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

You can order the part from www.homelite.com You will need your model number to help you select the right part. You will need to click on the order parts text in the upper right hand part of the screen. This will take you to another page which will ask you to go to the homelite parts catalog. After you click on the parts catalog link, it will ask you to agree to the terms of use for the website. READ THIS CAREFULLY.
After you have agreed to the terms of use it will take you to another page. From here you can input the model number of your unit. Input the f2020 into the search box and click on search. It will ask you which version of the model you have. On the right side of the screen it will have a parts breakdown. You should select (Shaft-Spool and String- Grass Deflector). This will pop up a diagram with a parts breakdown which will include part numbers to help make ordering the correct part easier. I believe the part that you wish to order is part number 17 of the diagram. When you click on the part number in the diagram it will select it below the diagram and will flash for a second. At this point it has an option to add this part to your shopping cart.
I hope this helps get you back in business.

I have an old homelite brush king that all of a sudden won't spin the blade under a load. When there's no load it runs fine. ?? Any suggestions where to begin.


Sounds like a clutch problem. IF it is, you need to disassemble the tube shaft from the power head to get to it.Normal operation is just the opposite of what your machine is doing.

To remove head to refill line which way do I turn bumper knob?


As a general rule it is right hand threads on curved shaft trimmers and left hand threads on straight shaft trimmers. The major exception is on homelite manufactured units. On Homelite units the black bump knob is right hand and the red bump knob is left hand

Trimmer head does not turn as fast as it should. It seems like it is slipping b/c as soon as there is any resistance (place trimmer head flat on ground) it stops. Engine sounds good. Possible connection in...


Maybe, but it sounds as though the clutch may be the problem. If you can get it to run properly except for the turning of the head, check the clutch. If it is just not running with high enough RPM's, the problem may be the engine. I would check the clutch...I may be wrong and it may be the shaft. That would be an easy fix...Lee

Homelite trimmer runs, but can't run attachments very fast.


Doesn't sound like piston and ring problem. Sounds more like the flex shaft that connects to the engine may have an end that is worn not allowing for the extra load when you connect the attachments. Check the ends of the top flex shaft.

Check the muffler for obstructions. Remove the muffler and check the exhaust port sometimes they are near plugged. If so remove all the crud with the cylinder in up position to prevent getting carbon in cylinder. Trimm to adjust Turn both L and H set screws clockwise until they bottom the back each one out 1 and 1/4 turn. This should allow you to start the trimmer. Then rev to max rpm and adj. the H screw to max rpm. Then set the idle with the L screw with good idle without string head turning. Then when throttled it should do so without hesitation. Once this is set you may have to fine trim the H screw for max rpm again.
