It appears that the carburetor is "flooding" in your case. Several different things can contribute to this problem, but primarily it is because you have eithter 1. Tried to pull start it an excessive number of times with it choked 2. The carburetor is dirty and requires disassembly and cleaning.
If this continues to happen, you will need to look at the carburetor closely and inspect it. To "dry" the machine out after it becomes "flooded" you can remove the spark plug (make sure it is clean and gapped properly as this can cause a no-start issue) and pull on the starter to expel the unburnt fuel out of the engine.

I have a ST 155 Homelite String Trimmer: I put new primer button on, rebuilt the carburator.I can get it running,but no gas goes to the primer button. Carburator is a Zama ut no. 20539 , serial no.HI...

Sounds like maybe you got a gasket on backwards or crooked that is blocking the passage that the fuel pulls through... otherwise, perhaps the hose connection to the tank is not put back together right or may have a crack in it.

The car doesnt start, its not the carburator or the fuel pump. i think it might be the distibutor cap but im not sure.

Get you a spark tester at the part store and hook it to a plug wire and see if it is getting a spark there about 8$ or you could stick a screwdriver in the plug and lay it down somewhere so it dont shock you and let someone crank it over and see if there is a spark or lol you could do like me and hold the plug wire while someone cranks it for just a sec. it will shock you though.If it is firing.if no fire could be your coil to

I need to know where the fuel filter and air filter is on Mighty lite 26ss Model # 21546

Your fuel filter is INSIDE the fuel tank at the end of the fuel line that flows gas to the carburetor. The air filter is behind a snap on plastic cover over the side of the carburetor. There may be a plastic lever there which is the "choke" lever which is to be used when the engine is cold to aid in starting.

Remove the Torx screws holding the rear cover on. Then remove the larger Torx screws holding the muffler on to the exhaust port of the cylinder. There will be a gasket there. The spark arrestor will be mounted in the opening to the muffler. You can scrape or burn the carbon off of it. If the spark arrestor is real clogged up, then the muffler probably is too. It should also be cleaned. The inside of the engine probably is carboned up too( if arrestor and muffler are). They all should be cleaned of carbon. It helps the engine perform at its' best and breathe like it needs to.

Proper gasoline and oil mix ratio.

My echo uses 50-1 ration. Home Depot sells the small containers for Echo Leaf Blowers that you mix with one gallon of gas.

Can keep the go power

which I can test I guess but I dont even really know what it does really. Any how I havent actually looked at the bike since I got it home just hoping you all had some good insight. why do u have to put in starter fluid? or do you mean you prime the carbs? it ought to start by itself w/ just the gas in the tank. u could be having an issue w/ the petcock or if its a vac operated petcock then its probably a tank cap vent blocked. ,,
