Does it have fire, (spark)?

If so, then: You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the carburetor parts are more than four years old, and depending on the use, you will need a new carb. kit if the cleaning doesn't work.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Ran blower with reg gas will it run again or is it junk now


It is likely that you have scored the cylinder and therefore its probably junk. A compression test will tell for sure. 120-140 is ideal. Less than 110 it may run till it gets warm then die. Remove the muffler and look at the cylinder and piston. If you see scoring ( lines running up and down) then it is not cost effective to repair regardless of the compression reading.

you may need to turn the Hi screw on the carb in 1/4 of a turn. Make sure the gas and mix are fresh.

Just turns off on it's own, Wait 60 sec. restart press pedel it dies.


This engine is electronically controlled so the first thing that must be done here is to have the systems control computer tested for fault codes and then do the proper diagnostics based on those codes.

Homelite model UT21566 string trimmer runs only on full choke and at lower RPM. I have disassembled and cleaned carburetor but that did not fix problem. Steve


Your carb high and low settings may need tweaking if it's not a fuel or muffler issue. I believe needles are made only to be adjusted by a technician. If you want to try adjusting it yourself, google and you tube your to see how.

I had the same issue. I disassembled carb and cleaned. Started up, but ran poorly. Looked at a few google searches and found a forum about his issue. I came across a write up about failed muffler bearings. I did some research, but to no avail. on part numbers. I went to a repair shop and inquired about how to get a muffler bearing ordered for my unit. It has been about a week since I was at the shop and I did call, but they assure me that they are working on getting this part for me. Apparently these motor parts are made in China and that can create some issues when trying to get parts. I may have to let the repair shop do the repair since I was told it may be a bit complicated to replace without having the experience. If it is as difficult to locate, I would not want to damage it when trying to install and have to get another. I will be glad to repost once it has been repaired. Perhaps this muffler bearing is an issue with a lot of other units and we may be able to contact the manufacturer for a refund or a free muffler bearing? I hope!!! Good luck out there and hang tight. I may be on to something here, I've got a good feeling about this.

14hp ohv engine getting very hot,briggs


Sounds like a mice in your muffler. Its stuck, stop using it, you'll be damaging the valve on the motor. Remove it and test it. Try to remove thing in, i know some people put it in the fireplace to turn it red and burn things (like mice) inside and open up things...
