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

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (,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.

Weed eater runs fine till I tilt it down to start trimming then it dies??

Check the gas line that is in the fuel tank . It has a filter on it and if its not down at the bottom of the tank where it should be then its not getting the gas it needs. If you tip it the gas may be too low for the hose to pick up. The hose needs to be on the bottom.

My homelite 26b is not getting gas into the primer bulb. It's only been used a few

There are a few things to look for with this problem. First, open the fuel cap and look inside the gas tank. If the tank is more than half full, dump some out to assist you in seeing inside the tank. Look at the fuel line and filter. Make sure that hose is long enough to reach the bottom of the tank when tilted on its side. Make sure that there is a filter on the end of the hose also. Then follow the hose to the carburetor and the other hose from the carburetor to the primer. If they are all intact and no cracks, then the primer may be bad or there is a leak in the carburetor. It will have to be rebuilt.

I bought this blower last week,i tilt it alittle and heard a rattle sound and now it wont start

Check the fuel filter in the tank and make sure the fuel line is connected to it. The carburetor may have inhaled some debris and/or small chunks of broken fuel line and need to be opened up and cleaned also. At this point, you would probably need to install a new fuel filter also.

Will not run unless gas is full in the tank when gas goes down about 1/4 tank the it shuts down. Fill it back up and it starts and runs. This is brand new used for the first time had to keep filling up...

It definitely sounds like the fuel line in the tank is sticking up, not laying on the bottom attatched to the filter as it should. See if you can drain the tank and take a look inside at the fuel supply line.

Runs for five seconds after being tilted up and put back down.

Trash in the tank fuel line outlet. When you tilt it the trash moves and lets some gas in. Set it down and the trash goes back in the hole and shuts off the gas. No pressure to feed fuel so when you pull choke makes it run rich and then starves for gas again. Dump gas, disconnect the line at the carb. Put a clean tube (drinking straw, plastic tube, whatever will fit so you don't get gas in your mouth) in the gas line and blow air into the tank through the filter clearing the obstruction. Reconnect line then see if it runs longer before it shut off. If it does clean the tank and flush the dirt out.
If that doesn't change anything then it has to be a carb diaphragm leaking and it need a rebuild kit and fuel system flush.

Fuel spills out when I fill up.

It is the filler neck it causes splash back.
