Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer
I have the same problem with my MightyLite 26cc Blower/Vac. If it does start it runs rough on full choke and stalls on 1/2 choke or run. I've tried everything, fresh fuel, Seafoam, etc. Nothing works. First time I used it the exhaust burned a hole in my brand new Carhartt hooded sweatshirt. Best solution, throw it away, never buy another Homelite product and tell anyone who will listen what a piece of junk Homelite products are.

I am a tech I also had this problem of miss adjusted carb from the factory. EPA does not want everyone to do this. But I did buy the tool because I have a shop The kit comes with 4 drivers which include the Packman driver(about $40 for the set) to adjust the carb. Gently seat the adjustment screws and back them out 1 to1 1/2 turns. Start engine and readjust both for idle and Hi Speed. I did have to cut some off the handle of the driver to clear the blower on the BP.

It is starving for fuel. If it was running good when you bought it and you have not adjusted the carburetor, then why would it need adjusting now? Go out and purchase a can of Seafoam Engine cleaner at almost any Auto Parts store. Pour 1 ounce in a full tank of fuel. Start the engine and run it. You will see an improvement very quickly in how it runs. I know this sounds too easy, but I have seen this work time and time again. There is an obstruction in the fuel supply somewhere. The Seafoam will clean out the fuel system. Now if this does not work, which I suspect it will, turn the carb power adjustment very slightly counterclockwise. Barely turn it while the engine is running. You will know when it is right. If none of this works then the carb must be removed and disassembled.

Have a Mighty Lite Backpack Blower. Same exact problem. First few times it ran decently, never really could rev to a decent level. Might be running lean since I had to keep the choke on partially.
Only used about 4 or 5 times and now it won't stay running for more than a moment and can't rev at all.
Would like to adjust the fuel to air ratio, but there are two pac man style carb screws. How do these get adjusted?

Try lightly seating but watch how many turns it was out then turn fuel needle back out the same amount,then start the unit and adjust from there,if you still need to run with choke partially on, the carb needs cleaning you can try using carb cleaner on while its running,if that doesn.t help you may need to remove and dismantle to clean completely
