SOURCE: Coleman6250 Generator PM0545007 - Won't start/run.

Most gasoline engines need three basic things to run: proper air/fuel mixture, sufficient compression, and a properly timed spark. Check the easiest, cheapest things first, then check the "Gee, I forgot to turn on the gas" kind of things next, then work your way onwards from there.

Compression can be guesstimated with the proverbial thumb-over-the-empty-spark-plug-hole routine as you turn it over casually to check compression. If it doesn't blow your thumb out of position, you could have a hole in the piston (overheating response) or a stuck or damaged intake or exhaust valve.

Check for fuel flow by carefully disconnecting the fuel line to the carburetor and letting some run into a tin can (no styrofoam coffee cups, please). It should dribble freely. If not, you have to back-track the line and find out where the blockage is.

Spark is one that sounds like you've already tested (spark plug out of the cylinder head, hooked up and laying on the metal engine as you turn it over?) so check timing. You will probably need a manual for this test, although a good estimate is that the plug should fire just a wee bit before Top Dead Center position of the piston. Like I said, a manual comes in handy here.

From what you've mentioned, though, I'd start trouble-shooting at the fuel flow part first.

Good luck,

GRB

SOURCE: new spark plug, carb cleaned, new gas.....won't

First check the surface between the rotor and the coil and make sure there is no rust. If there is take some fine emery cloth remove the rust from both the rotor and coil. Use a noncondutive cleaner to remove any metal particals. If you remove the coil you can use a standard business card to reset the gap.
After completing this process if it still does not start check the plug and make sure you have a spark in the plug gap. You can test it by removing the plug and reattach the plug wire then lay the plug on the head and try starting the engine. The spark should be a bright blue. If you do not have any spark recheck the plug gap. If the spark is a red color your coil is weak and needs to be replaced.

Got spark got gas want fire at all


chances are the carb is not set properly. turn the screw on the carb all the way in then back it out 1 1/4 turns. as a trick you can spray WD40 in the carb to start it too. if you can get Either, that works best. you may need to adjust the screw to get it to run at peak performance. adjust it in 1/4 turn increments.

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

Homelite 21" hedge trimmer. Won't start. Has spark, compression, fuel (used a little starter fluid), checker spark arrestor and muffler (clear). I haven't torn it down to check the Woodruff key but it ran...


Abell, put a little drop of petrol in the plug hole, replace plug and give it a pull. If it fires up for a moment, it is a fuel starvation problem. Check the carb, clean and make sure the nedel valve in the bottom of the carb is not sticking. Good luck!

Old gas, will not start. homelite "timberman 45"


Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

Homelite xL2 will not start spark OK Gas seems OK as far as carb


to begin, turn both of the carb jets out 1 1/2 turns from bottom. spray some starting fluid in the cylinder after removing the spark plug and then install a brand new plug. If it fires then try it again with the choke on. If it still won't start then you have carb problems. Also make sure that the air filter screen is clean with no holes in it. Hope this helps

Homelite String Trimmer not firing.


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

(NOTE: If the cleaning doesn't work, then buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.
