Chances are, the diaphragms are old/deteriorated/stiff, but you could try turning adjustment needle closest to carb, clockwise and counterclockwise 1/4 to 1/2 turn (=/-) and see if idle improves. Usually, the easiest thing to do is replace carb.

Homelite string gas trimmer Model ut20811A: 1. Will start with full choke and run with full choke for a while but will not maintain speed when choke is released. 2. String feed will not feed when taped....

If it only runs with choke on, then mixture is too lean or idle set to low.
Adjust mixture initially at 1.5 turns, then move in or out as needed for highest idle when warm.
Make sure no leaks or clogged filter when adjusting.

Hard to say with string feed, but are you sure you are not putting the spool in backwards?

Homelite 10540 chainsaw 35CC chainsaw won't start when hot

Go to: http://www.drystacked com for a 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting. Check particularly, the position of the gasket in the lower chamber. Check the spark plug for blue, snappy spark when the engine is hot. If ok, place a small amount of fuel mix in the cylinder and try for start. If it pops several times, look to the fuel system. Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel after several pumps? Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. When the engine is hot, try not using the choke, but set the fast idle. Hope some of this helps!

Make sure you have fresh fuel mix in the tank. Pump the primer bulb about 6 times or less until the bulb draws fuel into it. This fills the carburetor with fuel. Close the choke and set the fast idle if the throttle trigger has a button near it--otherwise, operating the choke auto-sets the fast idle. Don't operate the throttle again until the engine is running. Turn on the ignition switch and pull the engine through smartly. It should start within several pulls. If nothing happens, then get back to us for some troubleshooting help. Hope this gets it running!

Lost OM, starting question - Homelite 10655 chain saw

The compression release should be a metal button that projects from the cylinder head and extends out from the cylinder cover so that it can be depressed before starting. There should be an immediate lessening of compression when pushed. If no such result, the release mechanism should be removed and cleaned, or replaced. Proper starting is to pump the primer button several times to fill the bulb with fuel, then set the choke closed, the ignition on and set the fast idle on the throttle. Pull the engine through several times until it pops, then release the choke part way, and try to start. Don't pull the throttle during this as it will release the fast idle setting. Once the engine fires, the compression release should self-reset for maximum compression. Hope this makes sense and helps!

Setting carb on homelite chainsaw

Make sure that the air cleaner is not choked with sawdust. Turn both H and L jet screws CW to stops (lightly) then back out each 1-1/2 turns CCW. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H CW so that the engine will speed-up somewhat, but still 4-stroking. Proper final adjustment is to be 4-stroking, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L so that the engine runs fairly smoothly, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed screw so that the chain doesn't move, but the engine keeps running. Hope this helps!

Homelite 4618c runs fast when it should idle.

Hi Crackdpot,

If it's still under warranty, anything you do to it will void it. My best advice is let them handle it. They most likely will have seen the problem before and know exactly what to do about it.

Bottom line: It's their headache, let them handle it.

BTW, I have several Homelight machines. Despite their minor problems, they continue to serve me well.

Best regards,

Runs but wont idle / Homelite330

Try adjusting the idle. The will be a couple adjustment screws, there will be an (H) and (L) you will need to turn the (L) First tighten the sdcrew completely then turn it 1-1/4 turns. This will be a good to start. Then just turn it small amounts until you get it to idle. Also there should be an idle adjustment you can adjust.

Homelite gas trimmer will not run without half choke and throttle

You need to disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. If you need tips on how to do this, just let me know. You may need a new carb. kit as well, but we won't know that until you first perform the first step, or if the carb. parts are more than 3 years old. If they are, then go ahead and buy the carb. kit and replace the parts.
