Most likely its a homelite
Will it run at half choke?
Spark plug gapped .025-.030?
You did mix 2 cycle oil and gas? 40:1 not outboard motor oil
Check your fuel lines closely move them to make sure none are broken?
Check your primer bulb?
Make sure you look in side your fuel tank and make sure you can see your filter is still intact with the fuel line?
Ethanol fuel? 10%or less?
Stabilizer in your fuel?
low and high end adj. screws may need tweeking?
If they are capped you may or may not need a special tool to access
If they are not capped use a small screwdriver "note SMALL" turn and count the number of turns it takes to bottom out each adj screw marked H and L do not force once they both stop turning clockwise STOP!
Now bring them both back out the number of turns you counted with an additional approx. 1/4 turn.
Start trimmer as you would again and see what takes place. Better same or worse?

You may end up needing a carb. rebuild kit or diaphram kit?
Thats what i know for now maybe this may help or maybe not?

Gas Trimmer will not stay started


Many times with a gas mix, after sitting for a while, the mix separates and gums up the carb. Taking the carb off and soaking it overnight in a parts or carb cleaner and running carb cleaner through the tank and gas lines will cure this.

Wont start what is spark plug gap whatelse bulb full,new,gas in it,lines hooked


These are bad about flooding with the least amount of trying to. I usually can get mine started by letting it sit for 5-10 min. push the bulb 3-4 times hold the trigger and push the choke on full with 3/4 speed set. Pull 1x. Don't worry usually it won't start on this setting, it really just helps get the choke and carb set. Put choke back 1/2 way and try to start, if so, gas the trigger a couple of times but not holding in down. If it don't start put the choke on full again and try to start without holding the trigger. It should start after this. Take the plug out replace the coil wire onto plug and pull the cord gently to see if you're getting spark at the plug. Holding the coil boot to prevent it giving a small jolt.

It wont start


First, make sure that the gas mixture is correct (gas and oil mixed in the right proportion). Next, press the primer bulb 3-4 times, turn the choke lever on to Full Choke, and pull the starter cord until the engine seems like to wants to start, but dies. Next, switch the choke lever to Half Choke and start the gas trimmer, giving it gas by pulling on the trigger. Once it has warmed up fully, you may be able to reduce the Half Choke to No Choke, although my 20+ years of experience with dozens and dozens of models tells me that many trimmers run better, although smoking slightly, when you keep them at Half Choke. One last tip, when pulling the cord, try pushing the trimmer away from you with the opposite hand at the exact same time that you are pulling the starter cord--the equal and opposite push-pull technique may sound like something from karate (and it is, in a way), but it is really helpful when trying to start trimmers. Best of luck, Bill

PS: Check you owner's manual (at home or online) for the proper gas/oil mixture. Empty any old gas out and replace the spark plug, if required.

Only runs on full throttle


Are you saying full throttle, or full choke? if full throttle, you should be able to set the idle up. the idle screw will be the one when you give it gas, it will be the screw on you'r throttle linkage. If full choke, maybe the spark arrestor is plugged. You can remove it by removing the muffler.It would be between the muffler and cylinder head. You don't need this to run.I hope any thing I posted will help.

Gas Trimmer will not stay started


Have a similiar problem with a John Deere trimme (T 105C) and was told by the dealer that it is a carburator problem and would need to be replaced. Cost of the part is $105.00 plus labor. Not worth it to pay to buy the part & have it repaired. Good luck.
