Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer
Your unit most likely needs 1. Carburetor cleaned 2. At the least, a gasket and diaphragm kit installed on the carburetor...or 3. A complete rebuild kit installed on the carburetor.
Flooding can be caused by numerous different problems...some even related to the mechanical condition of the engine, not just the carburetor. Many always say..oh...your needle valve in the carburetor is stuck open because dirt or debris has entered the fuel system and is caught under the tip of the needle in the fuel cavity.This is NOT always the problem. If you can, remove the carburetor, disassemble and inspect it...taking pictures along the way, so you know how it will go back together. I am including a technical guide on how the carb works alongwith a troubleshooting chart. I DO know that a clogged (with oil, or any debris) air filter can and will cause flooding. There are many other reasons too. This tech guide lists them all.
This guide is 2.5MB in size, has a wealth of information and requires Adobe reader to view.
