Homelite very hard starting prime 10X full choke model UT32651


Make sure your fuel mix is fresh and of the right gas-oil ratio. Today's pump gas has Ethanol mixed with the gas and can go bad in as little as 30 days. this stuff is terrible to run in small 2 cycle engines. A lot of loggers I know buy Ethanol free gas for their saws. Also do not ever use starting fluid to start a 2 cycle engine ! What happens is the Either washes the cylinder wall of oil and now you have a scored piston and/or cylinder

I haven't been able to get my trimmer to start since the first day I got it. I think it is not drawing fuel when I prime it. Things to check, or what other causes it might be.


Start by spraying some starter fluid into the carburator. If it starts and dies after few seconds then you most likely have a fuel problem.

Press the primer bulb about 6 times. There should be gasoline flowing through both gas lines the intake and overflow. If not check that the filter ( attached to the end of the intake line ) inside the gas tank is not plugged. It can be removed for testing purposes. Rplacement gas lines and filters are available in places like Sears, Home Depot, Lowes etc.

If the unit does not start with the starting fluid you may have an ignition problem.
Remove and clean the spark plug. Attach the spark plug wire to the plug and hold the threaded part of the plug againt the metal head of the engine. While closely wathing the gap have someone pull the rope and turn the engine over. You should see a small spark jump the gap of the plug.
If not start by replacing the plug ( cheapest, easiest first).
If the unit has gas andspark nd still does not start remove the carburator and disassemble it.
Soak the body in fresh gas for about 10 minutes and blow out the port with small engine carb cleaner ( also avail at the prementioned stores).
Those small carbs don't take much to become clogged.

Have zrry30550 Ryobi Hedge Trimmer (reman.) I have good spark,good prime-up, but no fuel into the cylinder. Please help.


Hello. Get a can of starter fluid and a helper. Spray some into the air cleaner and start it up. Have your helper continue to spray a little starter fluid to keep it running for a minute or so. This will clear whatever blockage you have. Once it sounds like it is running well stop adding starter fluid and see. Joe

HOMELITE EXPAND IT 26VT WON'T RUN


Well if you are missing parts?...No. How could anyone from where we sit. But the fact that it starts with starting fluid is a great sign however. First off, Fresh gas/oil mix is A MUST! No getting around that. OK first, when you pull the throttle (Give 'er gas) does the little lever at the carburetor move back and forth at all? if yes, then what happens when you hit the primer bulb? Does it push/**** fuel from the tank? (My homelite spits fuel out to the ground when I prime the bulb, most spit it back to the fuel tank however) See if priming it moves fuel. You should see a trail of bubbles in the fuel tubing. You have to see if you are getting fuel at all first. Then does it maintain the prime? If not? Then the primer bulb will usually remain empty. A good prime should always show a half full or 100% full bulb at all times. Let me know what we got so far.

Gas line all the way in?


the line should be a little longer to let the filter roll around in the tank

Trimmer won't stay running


Most likely needs the carb rebuilt.

First check the prime bulb and fuel lines for cracks. Check the spark arrestor for carbon buildup.

Another problem could be a stuck piston ring, but try rebuilding the carb first as it is usually the source of the problem.

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.
