Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer
I have a Homelite Mighty Lite that will start, however, it will only run a few seconds. Give it a little gas and it dies. While using it this morning, I smelled something burning. Smelled like wood, however, nothing burning around me. Would anything in the trimmer smell like something burning?
Thanks for your assistance.
Check your muffler to be sure doesn't have a build up of carbon from the oil/gas fuel. This is the problem with 99% of equipment that uses mixed gas. Take the muffler off and see if it runs better without it. If so there is carbon build up in the muffler and muffler port on the engine. Burn the muffler in an open fire for a while to remove the carbon, or burn it with a torch, toss out the screen that's is in most mufflers, (unless of course you live in California where they are required), Scrape out the port with a knife and after the muffler cools on it's own (don't cool with water as you will warp it and not get a good seal) reinstall and see if this solves the problem.
