Homelite 21" hedge trimmer. Won't start. Has spark, compression, fuel (used a little starter fluid), checker spark arrestor and muffler (clear). I haven't torn it down to check the Woodruff key but it ran fine the last time I used it. Any suggestions will be appreciated.This is a UT 18029D, serial number HT1360994.

Abell, put a little drop of petrol in the plug hole, replace plug and give it a pull. If it fires up for a moment, it is a fuel starvation problem. Check the carb, clean and make sure the nedel valve in the bottom of the carb is not sticking. Good luck!

Any special procedures to starting an old ST-175 homelite weed trimmer that has not been run on over 8 years.


the carb and fuel lines will most likely need repair, i would mix a little extra 2 stroke oil in the gas on the first run, and a few drops 2 stroke oil in the cylinder is a good idea..oh and you might want to check the spark arrester on the muffler .. jay

NEED TO REPLACE SPARK ARRESTER ON HOMELITE LITE 26CC STRING TRIMMER


Remove the Torx screws holding the rear cover on. Then remove the larger Torx screws holding the muffler on to the exhaust port of the cylinder. There will be a gasket there. The spark arrestor will be mounted in the opening to the muffler. You can scrape or burn the carbon off of it. If the spark arrestor is real clogged up, then the muffler probably is too. It should also be cleaned. The inside of the engine probably is carboned up too( if arrestor and muffler are). They all should be cleaned of carbon. It helps the engine perform at its' best and breathe like it needs to.

Have zrry30550 Ryobi Hedge Trimmer (reman.) I have good spark,good prime-up, but no fuel into the cylinder. Please help.


Hello. Get a can of starter fluid and a helper. Spray some into the air cleaner and start it up. Have your helper continue to spray a little starter fluid to keep it running for a minute or so. This will clear whatever blockage you have. Once it sounds like it is running well stop adding starter fluid and see. Joe

I have a 22 inch 25CC gas hedge trimmer that will start fine but only run for 30-40 sec. in the "full choke" position before stopping. It will also stop if I try to give it gas. What should I do?


Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check cylinder compression

Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside
