Question about Garden

1 Answer

I'm trying to start for first time a 26cc Homelite hedge trimmer UT40502/UT 40903 I purchased few months ago. The thing just does'nt start and does'nt fire at all. I follow all the instructions and nothing happens. Spark plug works. I'm not new at this and in fact I own several gas operated machines. I must mention that the primming bulb is full of gas. Thank you for your help.

    It seems I'm getting really old, I have used that technic in my older machines and even in my old 73 Mercury Wagon. Thank you for reactivating my brains.

HI 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.

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!

Homelite trimmer, gas, string - y is the string wrapping itself around the head of the trimmer?


The line on my new 26cc Homelite would also feed out by itself. That started me thinking the line was wound backwards. I wrapped the line in the opposite direction as was shown on the bump feed reel and now the dang thing works although the bump feed needs to be "bumped" pretty hard to work. Is it possible that the reel was manufactured with the (string direction) arrows pointing the wrong direction? The new 26cc unit is also underpowered compared to my older 25cc trimmer.

Homelite hedge trimmer , motor runs but blades do


Had the same problem: when I turn on the trimmer, the motor would hum but the blades won't move.
What I did:
1. Sprayed a ton of wd40 between the blades
2. Took a screwdriver and kinda wedged it between the blades to get them unstuck. Also removed some guck between the blades.
And it worked!

Cutting blade doesn't move


a homelite is disposable, get a new one. You can pull it apart and see what broke and how much the new parts are. worst case, get the new one.

Oil ratio


you can use a 40:1 mix if it smokes then cut it back to 32:1 but a little more oil is better than not enough so start with the 40:1
