Engine only runs on choke, fuel was not mixed right

My neighbor gave me his 1 year old Husky line trimmer that has trouble running with choke off. He said his son mixed the 1 gallon oil in two gallon can. What is burnt up or should I look for? Thanks!!

Hi there E,

You did say it runs even if only with the choke. How well does it run?

Drain the remaining fuel.
Mix up a proper batch and give that shot.

Your symptoms make me feel that a fuel flow problem is more to blame though.

The first step is to eliminate the Fuel/oil ratio from the list of possibles

Homelite very hard starting prime 10X full choke model UT32651


Make sure your fuel mix is fresh and of the right gas-oil ratio. Today's pump gas has Ethanol mixed with the gas and can go bad in as little as 30 days. this stuff is terrible to run in small 2 cycle engines. A lot of loggers I know buy Ethanol free gas for their saws. Also do not ever use starting fluid to start a 2 cycle engine ! What happens is the Either washes the cylinder wall of oil and now you have a scored piston and/or cylinder

3650 generator won't start!!


I assume that the spark plug are good and the gas line is clear. Try to adjust the gas line supply and default engine startup revolution settings try it full half and minimum back and forth it works. Other gen sets requires a mix of oil with its gas, please do it when it is required with exact proportion. Hope this helps. Goodluck.

I have a Homelite Easyreach Model # UT20044A that will start, but then dies. Cleaned the filter, spark plug but still dies


Check that the carburettor and fuel lines are clean. If the unit has not been used for a while the gas (petrol) will evaporate leaving the oil behind to choke up the fuel system. Dirty fuel will do the same. When adding fuel use a funnel with gauze filter in it and always empty the fuel tank and then run the motor until it dies when you've finished work.

The symptoms indicate lean running, so check the fuel filter for plugging and the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Husky seems be having troubles with our ethanol treated fuel and may require some warranty attention. We have a year old 435 Husky that would not start after about 3 days of excellent running--warranty replaced the carburetor which seems to have us working well now. Good luck!

My Homelite trimlite trimmer will only run in the choked position. When I switch the choke lever to run it dies. What could be the problem


Could be a dirty fuel filter or cracked fuel line. The filter is usually inside the tank. You should be able to take the cap off and turn the unit upside down and shake it so that the filter drops from the tank. If not then grab it with a pair of needle nose pliers. If changing the filter or replacing the lines doesn't work, the carburetor might need to be cleaned.

Crastfmas 4 cycleonly run on choke, and only at an idle. press


you need to clean the carburator of varnish from the oil/gas mix,over time and especially if it has set with gas/oil in the lines it will create a varnish buildup and plug the fuel lines,another thing is to remove the muffler which can get carboned up from the same oil/gas mix during combustion and block the exhaust port and create back pressure and cause loss of power to throttle

My echo srm-210sb will start and run, but only if I carefully find the right spot on the choke lever; like at almost full choke. Turn off the choke & engine stalls.


Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

Youwillneed to disassemble the carburetor and spray withcarb.cleaner.Makesure the small screen is free of debris. (Should beable 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.

I bought it refurbished, used it once. The 2nd


Mix up some fresh fuel mixtutre. I mean go to the gas station and get fresh fuel and mix your two cycle oil with it. Sounds like old fuel mixture.
Several manufacturers have told us at class this year, that fuel over 30 days old is no longer good. Plus it may need some carburetor adjustments.

Runs on choke a little


sounds like the carburetor has gummed up a bit, and may need adjustments - or, the fuel pickup in the tank has come loose [i.e.: deteriorated fuel lines] - also, make sure your gas mix is FRESH. if your gas mix is more than 2 months old, dump it

Homelite zip start 2cycle trimmer.


I had this same problem, would run a couple of seconds, stop, and you couldn't start it again.
Had good gas/oil mix 50:1 and 25cc Homelite. Had replaced the fuel filter, gas, spark plug, and took carb apart and cleaned with carb cleaner and primer bulb worked fine. None of that fixed it. What did? Take the muffler off and see if it will start and run with the muffler off. If it does, chances are the muffler is clogged. Also check the exhaust ports and clean them out if plugged with black oil carbon residue.
My muffler was clogged up, took it off, cleaned out the exhaust ports, there was some oil that was in the muffler(oil that didn't burn during combustion). It now starts and runs like a champ on first or second pull.
