Hard to start and keep running

Mighty lite 26ss

This trimmer has been a problem from the start. I have to use an almost full choke to keep it running at all. When you try to give it the gas the motor cuts out.I have to keep playing with the throttle to use it at all.Recently the pulley stuck when I pulled it out. When I took it apart the pulley assembly came flying out. Where can i get this part?

By "pulley assembly" I assume you're talking about the recoil on the starter cord. You can check E-Bay. I just did. There was one for $15.00. But I don't know if it'll fit your model. PLEASE rate my answer.

Need to find where air cleaner is ?


If your unit has one, it would be in front of the carburetor. Some Ryobis and Homelite trimmers do not have an air filter on them, just a screen inside the choke cover.

Does this machine use a an air filter? I have the Mighty Lite 26ss UT21044 model.


Some of these actually use a screen cover with NO filter medium. Ryobis and Homelites are infamous for this.

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 had the same problem. I took it to the dumpster and used my old echo that I purchased in 1986. The Homelite was 2 years old. My sugesstion is to dump it.
