    How old is your trimmer? When was the last time it ran properly and how did it run?

The engine cuts off when i squeeze the handle on the sprayer, what is causing this to happen?


Sounds like a bad unloader valve. Do a search on "pressure washer unloader valve symptoms". When they are faulty there will either be little pressure or it will stop an engine abruptly. The engine will not just die down as it you were turning it off. It would stop cold.

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.

The engine is not getting enough fuel to the high speed jet. The issue may be one of the following:
  1. Restricted fuel filter (in the fuel tank)
  2. Pin hole in the fuel line (are bubbles seen traveling in the fuel line?).
  3. Improperly mixed fuel/oil
  4. Poor grade oil ~ never use outboard or genaric 2 cycle oil, use the manufactures oil or gold spectra (available at motorcycle shops).
  5. Mal-adjusted carburetor, if you changed the brand oil you used in the past the carburetor may need to be readjusted to compensate, or switch back to the oil used before the issue occured.
