Your carb high and low settings may need tweaking if it's not a fuel or muffler issue. I believe needles are made only to be adjusted by a technician. If you want to try adjusting it yourself, google and you tube your to see how.

I had the same problem for a year. I was using a MUCH larger diameter line than my 26vt called for. The first time I started it with the .080 line on it it ran just like it is supposed too!!!

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.?

Homelite string gas trimmer Model ut20811A: 1. Will start with full choke and run with full choke for a while but will not maintain speed when choke is released. 2. String feed will not feed when taped....


If it only runs with choke on, then mixture is too lean or idle set to low.
Adjust mixture initially at 1.5 turns, then move in or out as needed for highest idle when warm.
Make sure no leaks or clogged filter when adjusting.

Hard to say with string feed, but are you sure you are not putting the spool in backwards?

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

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.

Trimmer only works on full choke


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, (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 you need further assistance, just let me know.
