Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer
I have the exact same problem and feel the exact same way. I have wasted so much time on this trimmer. I have three expand-it attachments and would like to get it to work before I pitch it and buy a Ryobi (also uses expand-it attachments).
I too have a Homelite MightyLite 26cc Model String Trimmer that will start sometimes but not stay running long enough to do work. Most times, I can't get it started. I have spent 50 dollars plus on this unit and countless hours working on it; something that should have started and ran for several years without problems. Other brands do! If it is still in warranty, I recommended taking it back to store and purchasing something else besides a Homelite and/or writing HomeLite and get a replacement model that works. This is a POS that should never been released to the consumer. Or if unit is past warranty, dump the gas, remove the plug and wrap unit around light pole before trashing. Never buy a Homelite product again. But for God's sake, just don't sell and/or give away this unit to anyone else.

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 on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement
Just let me know.
