Your carburetor needs cleaned you had old gas in it this cloggedup your jets and made the diaprams hard witch will not move enough to pump enough gas to keep engine running off choke.

Homelite mighty lite 26bv gas Blower won't run full speed or only in Full Choke


Sounds like a lean condition. Rebuild carb, replace fuel lines and fuel filter and you should be ready to blow the leaves.

Correct start proceedure


Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem.
I don't know what homelite says, but I have found that this works well on any 2 cycle engine.
1. Push the primer bulb between 3 to 5 times.
2. Place choke on full.
3. Pull rope until engine fires once or starts.
4. Move choke to half choked position and allow to warm up.
5. When warm place choke in run position

If it doesn't attempt to start within the first 3-6 pulls, check your spark plug and make sure your fuel/oil mixture is correct.
I hope I've helped! Thank you! Dane

My homelite string trimmmer will not run when choke is run position. it will run, but not at full throtle, when choke is set between full choke and half-choke.


you've got a fuel system issue , most likely carb problem, if this a newer trimmer it will likely need the carburetor replaced or adjusted, also check for cracking fuel lines or signs of old fuel varnish in the tank

It won't run prorerly


I had the same problem. I took it to the dumpster and used my old echo that I purchased in 1986. The Homelite was 2 years old. My sugesstion is to dump it.

How do i adjust carbuerator


Start your adjustment by turning both screws (gas and air) all the way in and then back them out one and a fourth turn. Start from there. Hope this helps.

Engine run @ half choke but will not run in run position


It's starving for fuel. What is it? Sounds like the jets are plugged in the carb. or possibly water in the gas. Remove carb., disassemble, clean and put back together. You should get a rebuild kit for it first so you have new gaskets, etc. when you reassemble. It's a little more complex than I can put in words for you here.

Also empty and clean fuel tank too and start with fresh, clean fuel.
