Have a 2005 homelite generator that I can not start. Have oil that was in before. Added gas. Flipped switch and hit the choke. Pulled chord and nothing.

Check the following:

1. The fuel - if old fuel was left in, it may be contaminated. Use fresh fuel. If the unit isn't used regularly, add the gas additive "Stabil" before storing the generator.

2. Check the air filter - clean or replace as necessary

3. Check the spark plug for fouling, gap, etc.

4. Make sure the carburetor is tight to the manifold and engine.

5. Make sure to start the unit with no loads connected.

6. Makes ure there is enough oil and the correct type in the engine - do not overfill.

Double spool on Weed Wacker

This isn't a solution to the problem. However, I think you should talk to someone at Home Depot or Lowes or wherever you bought the model, and see if the string is in there correctly; if it is, then u'r weed wacker must have some other mechanical problem. Sometimes it is just best to buy a new one. The more expensive models are the best.
