You have 1 of 3 things wrong
1 you have pluged jets
2 you have a pluged fuel filter
3 you have a stuck float
4 fuel line is crimped

1 2 3 4 thats all it can be
preasurise the fuel tank by blowing into it when almost empty
this will as times clear jets
if fuel line kinked un twist it
best bet buy a rebuild kit for the carb and enjoy some time with a screw driver

I need to know where the fuel filter and air filter is on Mighty lite 26ss Model # 21546


Your fuel filter is INSIDE the fuel tank at the end of the fuel line that flows gas to the carburetor. The air filter is behind a snap on plastic cover over the side of the carburetor. There may be a plastic lever there which is the "choke" lever which is to be used when the engine is cold to aid in starting.

I was given a homelite mighty lite 26VT and I can not figure out how to remove the spool to insert the string.


There is a threaded cap on the spool that can get very tight, but a pair of Channel-loc pliers usually does the trick to remove the cap. Getting the string to feed consistently is a trick that I have not figured out how to do...

Homelite 26vt Mighty Lite carb settings


Setting up the carb right on a trimmer is like setting one up on an RC gas operated car. It takes someone with a good year,and a lot of experience doing it. If youre new at it,youre not just going to be able to get it tuned,well you could,if you want to spend a few hours. Just take it to someone who does it,they wont charge you much and it will save you a lot of aggrevation.
