Question about Homelite Consumer Products MightyLite Handheld Gas Blower with Quicker, Easier Starting
If you haven't tampered with any adjustments (Set screw, Idle, Hi or Lo jets etc...) then most likely your carb is flooding. You either have something stuck in the needle valve passage keeping it open. (And it can be Tiny! and I mean a speck.) You can try shooting some good old "Gumout" or any other carb cleaner/ degreaser made for carbs. Try removing the gas line off the carb "Inlet" and with that hose off spray the carb cleaner into that hole liberally. Pull the throttle open and close fast as you do the "spray in".If you have compressed air? Send a little of that in there after the spray, then spray a bit more cleaner in. Let it then sit for 10 15 min loaded with cleaner. Then reconnect the gas hose, prime it up with the primer bulb, restart it, let it warm up a bit. see what happens. Oh FYI to much oil (or the wrong type)in the gas mix can sometimes cause something very similar to flooding. So make sure all is correct!
