Starter seems jamed and will not start

When trying to start my Homelite Trimmer F-2020 from the pull start it does not seem to turn the motor. The pull works fine, but there seems to be no connection to the actual starting of the trimmer.

Homelite Lawn trimmer HLT26CDNB hard to pull start cord. Seems to be pulling against compression.


Take the spark plug out and see if it still hard to pull, if not it might have been the cylinder was flooded.

My starter pulley for my "homelite mighty lite


This is a labor intensive procedure to just get to the recoil/starter unit so it can be inspected for the problem. Here is how you get there.

Remove the tube that holds the flex-drive shaft from the front of the motor cover.Remove the rear engine cover. Remove the throttle cable from the carburetor. Mark and unplug any wires for the on/off switch that go to the ignition coil (underneath front cover) if possible. Now if you have pulled the driveshaft tube out of the way, the clutch drum is up next. Inside it, screwed into the very end of the engine's crankshaft is a Torx #20 screw. Before you loosen it, you will have to lock up the engine. To do so, remove the spark plug. Pull on the starter until the piston is down, then insert a length of clean, soft rope into the engine. The engine will come up and compress the rope, thus locking it in place to allow clutch drum and clutch removal. Loosen the T-20 (Star bit or Torx head) screw inside the drum.. You may be able to remove it with a long thin-blade screwdriver also.It probably won't come completely out...it is made this way. Next, remove the clutch. It is screwed onto a small threaded section of the crankshaft Removal is counterclockwise.. It will be pretty tight. To help, apply peneterating oil. Whack the ears of the clutch near the center with a hammer and a dull flat-blade chisel or a small piece of wood unless there are bolts. then use a wrench. It will turn counterclockwise for removal and there will probably be a removal direction arrow on it's face. After getting that off, remove the Torx screws holding the cover to the engine. The starter unit should be mounted inside as it mates with the top of the flywheel to start the motor. Remember to preload tension (5-7 turns) on the starter unit. Make sure the handle is installed. Jam the unit with a screwdriver or vise grips so you can insert and tie off the new rope. Then remove jam device and let recoil pull your new rope into place while holding the handle. Reassemble and you are done. Disassembly requires Torx head drivers and a good flat-blade screwdriver. Post back if needed.

Input your model number here to find a pulley. I will give you a couple of places to check.

Recently picked up a used Homelite ST 125 gas trimmer from a sweet little old lady that had only used it 3 or 4 times. It looks new and runs outstanding. I tried to replace the string but could not loosen...


The way to tell whether it is a right or a left hand thread is to pull the starter rope and see which way the head turns. That is the direction you should turn the line dispenser to loosen and remove it to reload the line. Sometimes these get very tight and need a lot of torque to get started. You could call the Homelite technical support line to find out the single/dual line question. I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please contact me.

When I pull the starting cord it does not turn the motor to start


Disassembly will be rquired to diagnose and/or repair the starter recoil unit. This is a common problem that is caused by a less than stellar design/poor engineering and normal wear and tear. The manufacturer like to use a lot of plastic in the parts and they don't wear very well.

Homelite Trimmer Carb Problems


Did you look at the muffler? With the two stroke oil, it will tend to get clogged up and restrict the exhaust flow. Exhaust flow restriction equals intake restriction. Just scrape the build up off the exit of the muffler. this is common.
