Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer
I have a homelite z830sb trimmer that won't start. It has spark and I just changed the fuel filter. Motor starts temporarily runs for about 1-2 seconds then quits. Any suggestions on where to look next would be appreciated.
Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped
