Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer
Check that the carburettor and fuel lines are clean. If the unit has not been used for a while the gas (petrol) will evaporate leaving the oil behind to choke up the fuel system. Dirty fuel will do the same. When adding fuel use a funnel with gauze filter in it and always empty the fuel tank and then run the motor until it dies when you've finished work.

I also have a Homelite Easy reach. I emptied all the gas. Replaced the spark plug, replaced the fuel filter and fuel supply and return lines, but still would not start. At full choke the engine would start, but die out unless I flipped the butterfly to run and gave it full throttle. The carb adjustment screws are "tamper-proof", but I took a utility knife and cutaway the plastic exposing the screw adjustments. Turned both screws clock-wise all the way in, and then 2 turns out, and it started right up. I had to do some adjustments after this, but runs great now.

If there was fuel/oil mix left in the tank for a long period the ceramic filter in the tank may be gummed with oil. You can carefully remove the filter after you empty the fuel, ensure while pulling filter hold line for it may fall back into the tank. Then you may have a time fishing the line out. Clean ceramic filter with carburetor cleaner, Re-install filter. Don't forget to replenish with fresh fuel mixture according to specifications for your trimmer.
