Homelite 26tv wont start


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.

My homelite mighty lite edger starts, but will only run on either half choke or run for 10 or 15 seconds and then dies. The choke filter looks clean.

I have a Homelite gas trimmer model UT20760. It will start, but won't accelerate.

My trimmer starts easily, runs well for about 1/2 tank of fuel, then bogs down, 1/2 running, may speed up if turned onto its left side, or may run on 1/2 choke. What could be the problem?


The problem is the carburetor is dirty or the carb. parts are old and need to be replaced. First try to clean. Disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den tek brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. Reassmble and start.

(NOTE: If the carb. parts are more than 3 to 4 years old, then you should gop ahead and buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts.

Starts but when throttled continues to die


You have carburetor problems. You will need to take the carb. off and disassemble. Clean the carb. with carb. cleaner and use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), for the small portals. Check the small screen in carb. to make sure it isn't clogged. The smallest of particals can cause the carb. problems. Check the gaskets as well. Depending on how old your trimmer is, you may have to buy a carb. kit and replace the Needle valve, appropriate gaskets, diaphragm, and small screen.

You have a dirty carburetor or a carburetor in need of new parts. Disassemble carburetor. Clean with carb. cleaner and use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), for the small portals. Check the small screen in carb., making sure that it's free of debris. Reassemble and see if it works properly. If it doesn't, then you will need to buy a carb. kit and replace the small screen, needle valve, appropriate gaskets, and diaphragm. This should do it.

Engine dies when excelerating - more gas


check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.
