Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer

Open Question

Homelite junk won't start

Homelite weedwacker is piece of cr**p . I've cleaned the carb, new fuel & fuel additive, new primer bulb, new spark plug, new fuel lines and it still won't stay working. BTW - carb cleaner will disolve the bulb. I can manage to get it started and will run for 5 minutes. If it goes off for any reason ...forget about starting it again. What a waste of money, time, and store shelf space. It's absolutely junk...1 year old. I'm giving it back to HD and tell them they can keep it. Or maybe tie it to a light pole in the lot with an appropriate sign on it.

SOURCE: Motor will not start

For some reason the engine is flooded. To make it start do the following: turn the choke off, hold the throttle wide open and crank it until it starts.Do not push the primer bulb first. It already has more fuel than it can burn. It will smoke more than usual until it burns out the excess fuel. You may also have a carb problem but this should allow the engine to start so it can be diagnosed.


Please rate this solution if it helps-

Homelite Lawn Trimmer Tune Up


If you're having issues with your Homelite trimmer running or starting, you may need a good tune up. I got all my parts from Home Depot except the carb rebuild kit I got from Amazon. Here's some videos on how I did it. In the videos I show how to change the fuel lines, primer bulb, clean the spark arrester, and rebuild the carburetor.

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

Redmax blower older model does not start, tried a few drops of gas in spark plug port and it started. but stalls after fuel in burned off, any help would be appreciated, djk913


Carb. problems sounds mostly like the carb needs to be thoroughly cleaned out, drop fuel bowl and hit openings with a tiny steel wire and carb cleaner also check the diaphram, sounds like its cracked/dried up.

Won't start


drain fuel tank. keep depressing the primer bulb until it is clear. drain tank again. remove carb cover and disconnect lines one at a time. keep depressing primer bulb to get rid of excess gas. remove spark plug an turn engine in a position that the spark plug inlet is facing the floor, pull starter rope a few times to get rid of gas in the engine chamber.

Homelite Trimmer Carb Problems


Did you look at the muffler? With the two stroke oil, it will tend to get clogged up and restrict the exhaust flow. Exhaust flow restriction equals intake restriction. Just scrape the build up off the exit of the muffler. this is common.
