Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer

Homelite trimmer dies every time I squeeze the handle

It will run until I squeeze the handle to use it My trimmer starts fine and runs at low speed. When the accelerator is pulled, it dies. It is also dying a lot easier even when it started okay. I have new gas, have tried to adjust the idle screw and the adjustment screws. None of that makes any difference. Thanks for any help. Ron

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.

Trimmers floods its self, will not stay running


It is unusual for a trimmer to flood itself. It is common to have a lean condition diagnosed as rich.
So lets start by seeing if its lean or rich. Get unit running and apply as much throttle as possible and keep unit running then slowly close the choke. If unit starts to run better as choke is closed then it is lean. If unit dies immediately and is hard to start again it may be flooded.
4 possible reasons for flooding...
1. piece of debris in inlet needle, needle lever adjusted too high
2. adjustment screwd turned too far out
3. exhaust screen clogged
4. low compression
If unit has a stuck inlet needle it will flood while engine is off and be very difficult to start- remove fuel source and/or turn adjustment screws all the way in and pull rope until unit starts ( 4 or 5 times)
clean the carb, screws should start at 1 and 1/2 turns out on the low and 1 turn out on the high.
clean the screen.
If the unit has low compression it is not worth repairing- the cost of repair will exceed the cost of replacement.

I have a poulan pro trimmer, it wont stay running


First of all, YES. boggs is a word in my dictionary. Remove the muffler and carefully take it apart. Pay close attention as to how it comes apart because it is vary important it goes back the same way. you will probable find that it is clogged. If it is then remove the debree. If it isn't then you will have to adjust the fuel mixture screw. First start the trimmer, then let it run for a few minutes to warm up, then gently turn the screw a little bit at a time counter clockwise first, squeezing the throttle inbetween adjustments . If it starts to take off then fine tune it untile your happy. If it boggs worse then turn it clockwise.

But first check the muffler.

Good luck

Homelite 2-cycle gas line-trimmer - It starts okay but when you hit the throttle it dies.


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.
