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 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!

Won stay running


Needs a carb adjustment, cleaning, or possible rebuilt. Try adding a little seafoam and running at half choke for about 5 mins or longer this may clean it up nicely. also check the spark plug.

How to start


Full choke until it tries to start, half choke until it does, and once it's running, open the choke fully and wait a few seconds for it to warm up before using it, as well as 15-20 seconds to let it cool down before shutting it off so as not to warp any metal parts of the engine

Stalls out at full throttle


Has the air filter been removed, damaged, or the airbox not seated propelry on the carbs neck, this would cause it to run lean hence requiring the choke to be in operation all the time. Have you tried fresh fuel?? This goes stale after a while. I hope this is helpful, Ian

You need to rebuild the carburetor. You will need to go to an outdoor power & equipment store of some kind to get a carburetor kit for your specific trimmer. It will come with various gaskets, (some of which you won't use), a needle valve, and a small screen that goes in the carb. Replace all old parts with new. New primer bulb is sold seperately. When you have the carb. apart, you will also need to clean the small ports with a Den Tek Brush (used for cleaning teeth). Use carb. cleaner when cleaning.

Use a heat gun to dry off all ignition components. If that doesn't do it, start looking into a partially "Hydro Locked" Engine.
