RE: Homelite 26b

You apparently have a fuel starvation problem . As per usual check fuel filter if provided for restriction . Otherwise try the KISS approach and buy some concentrated fuel cleaner and spray within the carb venturi ist . Attempt to start unit , continue to spray into carb until engine will run without choke . Should this fail add 1 ounce to fresh fuel mix , let sit for 20 minutes and attempt to run engine again . Should this fail carb jet removal and internal cleaning of the fuel circuits will be required with the spray cleaner and compressed air . Let us know what you identify.

Note in the future ensure to use stabil when storing your unit and fuel cleaner addition upon season start up .
