I have a 25cc Homelite weedeater that is about a year old with little usage.
It suddenly will not "get up to speed" It will idle perfect, starts very
easy, It is just when you try to give it full throttle it boggs down. I have
cleaned the spark plug and air filter.(they looked good) I started to adjust
the carb but it was running great yesterday and it still idles perfect. Any
suggestions as to what is causing this. I even mixed up different gas just
to make sure the gas was fresh.
Sounds like it's running lean.... probably got some crud in the high speed
needle. Gently close the needle, count the turns so you can open it back to
the same setting. Sometimes that will break up the junk so it passes
through. If it still won't run right open it a little further. Two stroke
engines are pretty touchy about the mixture. If it bogs down and wants to
stall it's probably lean, if it keeps running but has no power it's probably
Darn. Should've seen this post sooner. I had a Homelite weedeater do the same
thing. Turned out that a mud wasp had built a nest in the muffler. Once he was
evicted and the thing was cleaned out, it ran fine.
