    Aug 02, 2009 - Thanks for the possible solution.. I had actually found the problem and forgot to update this post.. Apparently this saw although new had been taken apart previously.. The gasket between the jug and carburator riser had been damaged.. it wasnt allowing the piston to draw the fuel into the chamber once that was replaced... it fired on second pull..

Why won't primer bulb fill on homelite 26cs weadeater?


a primer bulb should not actually fill, that said, if it is not priming your carb then there might be a tiny crack or pin hole that is letting air in as you try to prime, order and change the primer bulb.

Won't prime the carburator to start


If the primer buld is hard to push or wont return to shape like its supposed to then there is an obstruction in the carb. If it just wont move fuel then there is a hole in the fuel line or the fuel line is rotted off in the tank.
If the primer bulb itself is discolored ( should be clear not brown) it should also be replaced.

Primer bulb on Yardboss blower will not **** fuel from tank. Blower will run if primed manually.


remove your carb and clean it and replace diaphram's and needle , they tend to swell up from ethanol that is used in the gas now a days, and the diaphrams turn stiff and won't pump fuel. then put fresh gas in when you are done and also replace fuel lines and filter too., probably primer to because once it is hit with carb clean it just crumbles, good luck

Sounds as though the fuel filter may be plugged. The filter is in the tank. Take a look, see if it is visible. Remove and replace. Good luck...Lee

No gas enters the priming bulb no matter how many times you pump it, why?


Three possibilities here.....clogged or gummed up fuel filter in inlet line in tank ....clogged inlet line or trash in carb on inlet lines or passages...or leaky primer bulb....I'd tear down the carb and give it a good cleaning and check the other lines just to be sure !!! If you go into the carb be sure to check the fuel metering needle to be sure it is not stuck or gummed up...hope this helps... ;-D

Won't prime, the only way i start it is to remove spark plug and put fuel in cyl. I have replaced the primer bulb and line, and the fuel mixture is correct, My next step was to buy a new carb?


try to keep it running on wd-40 after you get it started and sometimes it will clean-out the carbs varnish blockage,if not remove and clean or replace the carb

My homelite chain saw will only run after I prime the fuel once gas runs out engine stops running but reprime fuel the saw will run until fuel runs out any suggestions


Did you replace the fuel lines? If the filtered hose feeds the primer that is exactly what happens. Your fuel system should be similar to this.
Fuel Line Replacement
  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, an output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.
