Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer Questions & Answers
Cannot undo nut on bottom of Strimmer
Make sure you are turning the nut to the right to loosen, if you are already doing that but cannot hold the line head still to loosen the nut some feature a hole to insert a screwdriver or pin (supplied with the trimmer) or if yours does not have that: use a nylon strap or even a leather belt to wrap around the head, and then clamp the loose end in a vise or quick clamps and it will hold it in place well enough to loosen the bolt.
Weed trimmer wont start, spark
The timinmg is preset by the permanent keyed slot built into the inside of the flywheel where it mates with the crankshaft. If the key was broken off, you would get No spark because of the nature of the magneto ignition. Your compression is actually pretty low for a 2 stroke. It should run higher like around 90+. Try this. With plug removed, cover plug hole with thumb and give the pull start a real strong pull. It should push your thumb off of the hole. If it doesn't the compression is too low for the engine to run. Scored piston walls, or cylinder walls could be the problem. Again 60PSI is really low. I would remove the jug and check for piston scoring and cylinder scoring. The engine can be easily rebuilt (but not real cost effective).
Is the fuel line filter necessary for trimmer to work
Reverse blow carb. Cleaner through the filter blow in same direction with compressed air and should be good for many more years that is if you clean tank completely with carb. Cleaner and compressed air and check all fuel sources. If fuel is a bit dirty place paper napkin or rag in funnel and use as filter when adding fuel.
26CC HOMELITE MIGHTY LITE LAWN TRIMMER PROBLEMS
Had same problem with my reconditioned unit. After a few hours engine would run only with 1/2 choke and full throttle. Like most 2 cycle engines, the unit was starving for gas.
Solution: Adjust both carburetor screws. These screws are located directly below the idle adjustment screw. There are 2 of them side-by-side and they are approx. 3/16 diameter with an oval shaped cast metal raised restricter. Simply remove the plastic round air filter by removing the small nut. Then, using a Dremel tool while wearing safety glasses, cut a slot in the face of each screw. Cutting through the raised cast metal surrounding the screws will not damage the unit. Then using a small flat blade screwdriver, screw each screw clockwise till it stops then back-out each screw 2 turns. Factory setting is 1 - 1/2 turn each. However, the unit over time runs too lean with the factory setting.
Then start unit, let warm up with 1/2 choke, then turn to run position and make any final adjustments.
Making this adjustment, I am once agin able to trim my yard in the idle position. Runs Great !!!! Hope this helps.
