The high speed jet is either out of adjustment or it is plugged. There should be a screws with H (high speed) and L (low speed, idle) You could try to open the high speed adjustment on the carb or run your machine on partial choke if you have to.

What is the gas to oil ratio for weed eaters?


Most gas weed eaters use 2-cycle engines. For the Homelite 2-cycle engine trimmers, use a 50:1 ratio of gasoline to the Homelite lubricant. (For 1 gallon of gas, add 2.6 oz of the oil.)

Many Homelite tool manuals are available here: http://www.homelite.com/service_support/product_owners_manuals . Scroll down to find your string trimmer.

I hope this helps.

I have a Homelite Easyreach Model # UT20044A that will start, but then dies. Cleaned the filter, spark plug but still dies


Check that the carburettor and fuel lines are clean. If the unit has not been used for a while the gas (petrol) will evaporate leaving the oil behind to choke up the fuel system. Dirty fuel will do the same. When adding fuel use a funnel with gauze filter in it and always empty the fuel tank and then run the motor until it dies when you've finished work.

Weedeater dies when you open choke


After you start it and are in the second stage of the choke (half choke ) let it run for awhile until it warms a bit then try openning choke and going to full throttle.

What is the gas and fuel mixture for a homelite st-185 weed eater


If it's not been started for that long, ensure that any remaining crud in the tank and fuel lines is cleaned out before even attempting to start it.

Put in a NEW plug, then mix up some 50:1 mix of unleaded and good synthetic 2-stroke oil (Sthil or similar). This will produce an almost smoke-free exhaust, and won't foul the plug.

If it does start, be prepared for LOTS of smoke initially, as all the old oil from inside the engine burns off.

Homelite won't start


You may consider installing a new spark plug. 2-cycle engines foul plugs pretty regular. I'm guessing you are using old gasoline??

Starts but when throttled continues to die


You have carburetor problems. You will need to take the carb. off and disassemble. Clean the carb. with carb. cleaner and use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), for the small portals. Check the small screen in carb. to make sure it isn't clogged. The smallest of particals can cause the carb. problems. Check the gaskets as well. Depending on how old your trimmer is, you may have to buy a carb. kit and replace the Needle valve, appropriate gaskets, diaphragm, and small screen.

Trimmer puking gas out carb!


You could have a bad pump daiphram, which is holding the needle valve open. You can try rebuilding carb.or just replace carb. that is the easiest way.
