I have a problem with my homelite ut-20046. It will only run on half choke, and even then accelerates poorly. Will not run at all with choke off. Any ideas?

Run some combustion chamber cleaner (not carb cleaner) through the carb with the air filter off.

Your main jet is partially clogged and it needs a richer air / fuel ratio to run - hence, why the choke needs to be all or partially on.

Hope this helps!

Homelite gas edger cuts off after running about 10-15 seconds


The fact that is runs slightly longer on full choke may point still to a fuelling issue.. Does it actually Rev in those 10 seconds or does it just want to bog down and stall.?

My homelite string trimmmer will not run when choke is run position. it will run, but not at full throtle, when choke is set between full choke and half-choke.


you've got a fuel system issue , most likely carb problem, if this a newer trimmer it will likely need the carburetor replaced or adjusted, also check for cracking fuel lines or signs of old fuel varnish in the tank

Homelite gas trimmer will not run without half choke and throttle


You need to disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. If you need tips on how to do this, just let me know. You may need a new carb. kit as well, but we won't know that until you first perform the first step, or if the carb. parts are more than 3 years old. If they are, then go ahead and buy the carb. kit and replace the parts.
