I have 2 homelite 55 HP for parts, every thing but rods, and in very good clean condition.
What do you need?

I have that saw. The manual states if you are using Homelite 2 -cycle oil read and follow the instructions on the package. If you use other than Homelite oil use 16 parts gasoline to 1 part 2- cycle oil, 1 gal / 8oz

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!

Homelite wants to sell you a new carburetor assembly. Your blower came equipped with a RuiXing brand carb. RuiXing does not offer any repair parts for their carbs, only replacement units.
Now for the good news....a Zama brand primer bulb fits perfectly on the RuiXing carbs. Check with your local small engine repair shop for a Zama primer bulb. The blower requires removal af the carb to get at both of the screws that hold on the bulb. It is not difficult, just one nut holds on the outer airbox cover...don't lose the little washers. Then one long stud and one short screw will take the carb off. Replace the primer bulb and reinstall everything the same way it came off.

This sounds like a drive belt problem. When the belt gets hot it stretches and and slips. You can check the adjustment of the tension pulley. If it is adjusted all the way to max tight you will have to replace the belt.
