Question about Homelite Consumer Products MightyLite Handheld Gas Blower with Quicker, Easier Starting
So I have had it a year and used it 2 or 3 times. 3rd time it was very difficult to start. The next 2 or 3 times it would not start at all. Plug was getting fire, but the cylinder did not seem to be getting gas.
Read someone else's post about how the new carb jets might clog if using 32:1 mixture like my other equipment. Anyway, dumped the gas; made a 50:1 mixture; primed 7 times ( as instructed ) and it started on the 2nd pull. Wow, I bet I spent 3 hours the last 2 Saturday's pulling that stupid starter rope and it wouldn't start.
Anyway, hope this helps someone else.
Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:
You willneed to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Makesure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylightthrough it.)
Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.
If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.
If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement
Just let me know.
