Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer
When you prime it the prime bulb should fill, if not then the two lines running into the tank are not connected or cracked, either way this would be the first thing I would look at, of course the bulb itself may be cracked, if you check all three things and they are good then the only other thing is the filter inside the tank its connected to the bigger hose. Good Luck Tim

Start by spraying some starter fluid into the carburator. If it starts and dies after few seconds then you most likely have a fuel problem.
Press the primer bulb about 6 times. There should be gasoline flowing through both gas lines the intake and overflow. If not check that the filter ( attached to the end of the intake line ) inside the gas tank is not plugged. It can be removed for testing purposes. Rplacement gas lines and filters are available in places like Sears, Home Depot, Lowes etc.
If the unit does not start with the starting fluid you may have an ignition problem.
Remove and clean the spark plug. Attach the spark plug wire to the plug and hold the threaded part of the plug againt the metal head of the engine. While closely wathing the gap have someone pull the rope and turn the engine over. You should see a small spark jump the gap of the plug.
If not start by replacing the plug ( cheapest, easiest first).
If the unit has gas andspark nd still does not start remove the carburator and disassemble it.
Soak the body in fresh gas for about 10 minutes and blow out the port with small engine carb cleaner ( also avail at the prementioned stores).
Those small carbs don't take much to become clogged.
