The problem is in the carburetor most likely, it may be cleaned and adjusted, if not it will likely need a new carb

Correct start proceedure


Hello,
My name is Dane and I am going to help you solve your problem.
I don't know what homelite says, but I have found that this works well on any 2 cycle engine.
1. Push the primer bulb between 3 to 5 times.
2. Place choke on full.
3. Pull rope until engine fires once or starts.
4. Move choke to half choked position and allow to warm up.
5. When warm place choke in run position

If it doesn't attempt to start within the first 3-6 pulls, check your spark plug and make sure your fuel/oil mixture is correct.
I hope I've helped! Thank you! Dane

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

It won't run prorerly


I had the same problem. I took it to the dumpster and used my old echo that I purchased in 1986. The Homelite was 2 years old. My sugesstion is to dump it.

Trimmer won't stay running


Most likely needs the carb rebuilt.

First check the prime bulb and fuel lines for cracks. Check the spark arrestor for carbon buildup.

Another problem could be a stuck piston ring, but try rebuilding the carb first as it is usually the source of the problem.

How do i adjust carbuerator


Start your adjustment by turning both screws (gas and air) all the way in and then back them out one and a fourth turn. Start from there. Hope this helps.

My weed wacker wont stay running .It starts and runs in choke and the next setting up ,but only 30 seconds to about 2 min.Does anyone have an idea why


You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. 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.

Homelite gas trimmer will not run without half choke and throttle


You need to disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. If you need tips on how to do this, just let me know. You may need a new carb. kit as well, but we won't know that until you first perform the first step, or if the carb. parts are more than 3 years old. If they are, then go ahead and buy the carb. kit and replace the parts.
