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.
There is no special tool to use on the carb, just a screwdriver to adjust the jets back to normal position.
Please rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

It idles good but as soon as I give it gas it dies


You might not be mixing the gas right. Or it might need the carburetor cleaned. Try giving it gas with the choke on, if it revs up like that its most likely the carb.

How do i adjust the fuel air mix on a 2012 cub cadet bc210 trimmer


there is a special tool that fits the splines on the carb screws, part no. 530035560, before adjusting the Hjet make sure the air filter is clean, and if it has a spark arrestor in the muffler outlet check it has not carboned up, both of these things will cause the engine to run rich.

Out the box.Cranks and runs on cold.when you give it full throttle and knock it off fast idel try to let it idel it die's.After u use it a few min. it die's and want start back till it cools.


This is a common problem out of the box for weedeater products. This simply needs a carb adjustment which is not something the consumer can do (requires a special tool), You will need to take this to a weedeater dealer near you to get it done, it's covered under the warranty.

Trimmer will start but as soon as i depress the trigger it dies. I have had to replace the primer bubble and in doing so made sure the gasket was put back on properly IT JUST WONT STAY RUNNING can you...


Your trimmer is starving for fuel. If it is less than 18 months old, my guess is that it just needs a carburetor adjustment. If it is older than 18 months, it should have the carb cleaned and rebuilt, or replaced. Check with homelite.com for the cost of a replacement carb, sometimes they are less expensive than having the old one repaired. If it just needs an adjustment, find a local repair shop to do it for you. Homelite requires a special tool to adjust the carb, and won't sell the tool directly to consumers. Some shops will sell the adjustment tool. No special tools are required to replace the carb, just basic tools.
Good luck!

My 32cc starts right up but as soon as i give it gas it stops...help


The low side carburetor adjustment screw needs to be turned counter-clockwise. Start by turning it 1/4 turn then test run. If your carb has plastic locks on the screws, they will have to be removed first. Most modern carbs require a special tool to adjust the jets. The tool can usually be purchased from your local repair shop.

Starts fine but dies when set to run.


You either have a air leak in a fuel line, carb jets are plugged, or carb seals went bad. They sell a rebuild kit for your carb, 10-15 dollars. I would start by removing carb spraying it with carb cleaner and blowing it out with a air gun, put it back on and see if this worked. If not I would replace fuel lines and rebuild carb.

Poulan trimmer , will not stay running ?


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.
