SOURCE: Homelite MightyLite 26cc Edger won't start

You have to make sure the case of the plug is making good connection against the metal on motor. Use file or sandpaper to get good connection on the plug and the motor.

SOURCE: starter rope

First, i will take that the rope is in the front. If so, you will need to remove trimmer shaft,throttle assembly, so you will be able to remove starter housing.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
There are 6 model numbers with Mighty Light in the name:
UT-21546 UT-21907 UT-21947 UT-21566 UT-21967 They all appear to use this muffler:*mKGXmndGJGQbyJww%253d%253dariamparica%253dwBQND3HPqCdAJrT8YcDNyA%253d%253dariamparioem%253dVOGGWB2rODFgBxRc4uyLwQ%253d%253dariamparit%253da439d57a-1a88-41c6-a006-f87871a54b42&ariqty=1 If this is not what you were looking for you can go to this site and find your model number. Just note that homelite engines are usually in the 2nd drawing of each unit: Choose parts search by model (Folders) Homelite Homelite (again) String Trimmers Then search for your model number The engine is under general assy. It is replaced by simply unscrewing the mounting screws / removing the muffler and then mounting the new muffler using the original hardware and reverse sequence of removal for gaskets and heat shields. Thanks for choosing FixYa, Kelly

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.

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
