Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)

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.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

I have a old homelite that won't start new plug fresh gas no spark


Most of the time on older engines, the carb needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Dont panic rebuilding is cheap an easy. The ports get clogged up sitting an varnish up. Try to clean out all orifices with small pieces of wire from steel or brass brush. Use carb cleaner to clean replace all gaskets an parts with kit. Dont forget to check fuel hose in tank they go bad often an should be replaced when carb work is done. Fresh gas an it should work

I have a weed eater trimmer that wont start. ben sitting for a couple years and i replaced the fuel lines andcleaned the carb. still nothing, what do i do?


Try cleaning the spark plug, make sure it sparks. Put some fresh gasoline in the tank, check start stop switch.
A easy way to check whether the problem is related to carb or not is:
remove the spark plug put some fresh gasoline in the cylinder, put the spark plug back
pull the starter a few times if it starts for a few seconds it means is related to carb.
Be carefully when handling gasoline.

I have a new batiere in my 1991 vino 50cc tow stroke, And the starter wont work and it wont kick start even with starter fliod. Anything that I can check or replace?


Check fuses. Get a new spark plug then check for spark by hooking up the plug wire then hold the metal side of the plug against the cylinder. Have a friend kick the engine over while you look for spark. Remove the carb, then remove the float bowl from the bottom of the carb. Use spray carb cleaner to clean the carb. How old is the gas? Flush the tank and fill with fresh fuel if old gas is present. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

My 16" Homelite chainesaw will not start. I have fresh fuel, and good spark.


Remove the spark plug and try spraying starter fluid or carb cleaner into the cylinder. If it starts and then dies you probably have a carb problem and will probably have to clean it. You can try spraying carb cleaner in it and see if it helps. If it has been sitting, if could be due to the fuel. Gas has ethanol that attracts water and causes corrosion and clogging problems in the carb. You can use a fuel stabilizer to treat your gas and avoid this problem. Hope this helps.

Will not start


It sounds like your blower needs a carburator overhaul. Either there is gum from dried gas blocking a passage, or one of the diaphrams has a crack in it. This is not a difficult repair. You purchase a carb kit for your machine, then carefully disassemble the carb & clean all of the components with brake cleaner spray. Make sure to spray through the several tiny holes in each diaphragm chamber. Now put the carb back together, using the new parts in the kit.
Before you do this, however, check the hoses on the engine, one might be cracked or blocked.

Wont start


Start with emptying the gas tank totally. Refill with fresh gas/oil mix. Todays gasoline ain't that great.
Also after putting in fresh gas and priming if it doesn't fire at all pull the spark plug and if it is dry, pour a about a tbsp. of mix gas in the plug hole. put the spark plug back in and see if it will fire.
