My leafblower won't draw fuel, despite a new carburator. If I put a bit of fuel in the cylinder, it turns over easily for a second or two, then dies.

Who put in a new carb? Ask them. Check for air leak in fuel line or clogged filter at intake inside gas tank. Maybe intake tube is not down in the gas tank far enough.

Weedwacker won't stay running

replace the fuel lines and check that the filter in the fuel tank( its on the end of the intake fuel hose) is clean. If there is an air leak somewhere in the old lines it will cause the trimmer not to get enough gas.Then clean the carburetor with carb cleaner- take the carb off by removing the air filter first then undo the two nuts holding on the carb and take off accelerator cable remembering which hole it came from. spray the hole carb with the cleaner on the inside and outside then soak it in the cleaner trying to get any dirt out. put it back together and it should start...if not you might need a new diaphragm in the carb.

Homelite 16" 33cc chainsaw. Sarts but win't keep

Hello rick.... Get an aerosol can of starter fluid at your local autoparts store. Also get an assistant. Remove the air filter and start it up. Have your helper squirt some starter fluid into the air intake to keep it running for a couple minutes until the partial blockage in the carburater clears. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

I have a homelite model uto8550 26cc mighty blower/vac. On initial startup it runs at half choke then stalls when i turn it to run. Any suggestions?

1. check fuel filter in gas tank (for clogged condition).
2. Check carb jet for dirt (squirt carb cleaner in jet and fuel inlet

Summary: your carb is not getting enough fuel to mix properly with constant air flow. Therefore, fuel supply needs to be cleaned... then you will run happy!!

Gas floods out engine,if I pinch the line (regulate the flow) I can get saw to run.XL360 homelite

I sounds like there is some dirt under the needle valve in the carb. Change the fuel filter first, if it is falling apart then it is very likely a piece of it got in the carb. Try spraying some carb cleaner directly into the fuel inlet to see if you can flush it out first, If not then your going to have to pull the side closest to where the gas goes in off the carb take out the little screw and clean under the needle valve.

Engine dies when excelerating - more gas

check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

Homelite hb 180 leaf blower

Changed all major gaskets: Cylinder to crankcase, case half, exhaust & carb. Now it runns right. The carb can be adjusted and the choke is full open when warmed up as it's supposed to be.

Gaskets ca be bought from Homelite directly at
