Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer

1 Answer

Have a Homelite mightylite 26ss String Trimmer. When i pull the trigger in the run position it cuts out and will shut off continuously. I checked the filter screen and it is clean(looks brand new). I've only had this trimmer two years. Do you have any solutions to my issue?

Let the engine warm at idle adequately before applying full throttle. With the engine warm, slowly bump the throttle and see if the response is good: if the engine wants to die again, let it continue warming at idle. If the problem persists, check that you are mixing your oil/gas mixture at the correct ratio: too much oil and you risk clogged the works.

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.

How do I feed string into my Homelite Mighty Lite 26ss grass trimmer? I don't have a manual and I can't figure it out. Thank you!


cut a 6 ft piece and wind it (starting with the middle of the trim line) around the head with each head going opposite directions. When you get it wound up, you will have two pieces sticking out in opposite directions and they can be clipped into the small plastic slots on the edge of the string canister. THen press the ball on, and attach to the trimmer.. Just keep the string the grooves and you will be fine...


OHYEAH!!! dont worry if it keeps coming unwound or pops off the trimmer at first, it will happen until you develop the technique needed for a quick replacement


GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!

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.
