Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer

1 Answer

Poor running I have a homelite HBC26SJ brush cutter. It will start when the choke is in the closed position but cuts out when I turn to open choke or fast run. The unit is only around a year old and has barely been used. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Craig.

The cutter on my White super lock 1934D has dropped down and won't stay in the correct position to cut. How do I fix this?


The cutter mechanism connects to the machine whet the front is closed. If you look at the machine with the door open. You will see a finger coming out of the inside of the machine. If you turn the hand wheel it should move up and down. On the cutter mechanism there is a fork that fits over the finger. When it is all closed up it sould work together to move the cutter blade up an down. Is the cutter in the up position?

My homelite blower starts but after on run position shuts down


Ck and see if it has a choke. If it is on full choke, reduse choke after you put in on full run.

On my new 49cc 2stroke brushcutter what position should the choke lever be up or down when I put to up it cuts out even though up says off and down says on


Remove the air cleaner and look into the throat of the carburetor. Move the choke and watch the butterfly plate whether it closes or opens. Normal position is open--closed is for starting and warm-up. If the machine won't run with the choke open, return the machine to the dealer for adjustment. Hope this helps!

Trimmer will only run in choke position


You have a few possibilities. Make sure you have good fresh gas in the tank. You're not getting enough gas, so choking helps get more gas than air, making it run better. Could be the carb diaphram (not very expensive if you replace yourself), when they get old they don't perform like they should. Could be the filter in the gas tank is bad, plugged. Also might be just an easy adjustment on the carb Low, and High speed screws. The choke has three positions, full choke, partial choke, and no choke, which means run position.

My homelite might lite 26b will run in the choke position but cuts off in the run position. I have drained the gas and put in fresh gas, new plug and opened the carburetor and cleaned it.


if it seems low on power,remove the muffler and clean out all carbon build-up,if it has power as in full throttle,then the carb is still dirty and needs to be rebuilt
