Answer: 
I just did this over the weekend.
I used it for a while and when I was done, I left and about 30 mins later came back to use it more. It wouldn't start. I drained the gas & put in the correct mixture. After a few tries, it started and ran just fine.

Answer: 
If it's a 2 cycle it's toast. If it's a 4 cycle and you didn't put oil in the crankcase, it's toast. Bottom line, the cylinder and rings are fried and it's toast.

Answer: 
Change the spark plug, that should work. If not, you may have burned up the piston ring which means its not getting proper compression and the motor is now blown. You might be able to claim it under warranty.

Answer: 
The engine burned up. Not mixing oil with the gas is the same as draining the il out of your car and running the engine. It will run for a short while, but then it is shot, and needs to be replaced.

Answer: 
I could not find one,so I googled it to see what others have improvised.You can use the end of an electrical connect wire,has that plastic end on it to insulate the metal connect.Shop for the wire end and choose a size that is about right,stick it in there and turn.
I ended up using a super small thin screwdriver,stuck it in there and turned from the side,it did help,as a quick temporary fix.

Answer: 
It uses the industry standard of 50 to 1.Which is approximately 2.5 oz. or 75ml. to one gallon of gas. It is important with these types of engines to use fresh, just bought gasoline for proper operation.

Answer: 
The ratio is 50:1
You should have gotten a small bottle of oil with the trimmer which is 2.6 ounces. If you purchase a large amount you can refill that small bottle and add it to one gallon of fresh gas which will get you to the correct ratio.

Answer: 
One gallon of gas to one small bottle of oil mix. This should make thing much easier for you if your having trouble reading it. Generally 50:1 is the ratio. To make things really easy buy a 1 galloon gas can so you know for sure the ratio is right.

Answer: 
50:1
Tip. Keep the 2.6oz(?) oil container that comes new with the unit. If you buy a larger container of oil mix then you can use the 2.6oz one for measuring into 1 gallon of gas for accurate mix.

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 321 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wouldn't purchase again It was easy to put together, but near impossible to start. I cannot start it myself. My husband has to come out and start it for me every time. Even he cannot get it started when using the instructions to start it in "start" mode and has to set it to "run" to get it started. It is almost as heavy as my mower, and the vibration is makes is really extreme and hard on my hands. It does a fair job of actually weed-eating, but it's not really worth the trouble. If you are debating this trimmer because it is so affordable, don't get this one. Pick a different trimmer. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works really well. Worked right out of the box on the first pull. Could see where someone might pull a little too hard on the rope. The string in it was adequate, but easy to replace. If you pull out more than about 5 or 6 inches of string it is a little hard to start. These little engines are real easy to break in. Let it idle a couple a minutes and then let it cool all the way down, repeat. Third time vary the speed slightly, but no where near wide open for about 5 minutes or so, repeat. Then take it easy the first couple of time you use it and you won't have to worry about the warranty. Was really surprised by the ease of use, for the price. July 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your money My 12 year old homelite grass trimmer finally died so I replaced it with this model. It runs fine but ease of use is horrible. The handle on the shaft constantly moves while using it no matter how tight the wing nut is tightened. The bolt is in the wrong spot and doesn't apply enough clamp load at the shaft. The spool holds a little bit of string. If you spool more than a couple feet of line you can't even assemble it. I took the spool off of my old string trimmer so I could finish my yard. I'm guessing Homelite allowed a chinese company to design this machine and that's why it doesn't function properly. It definitely wasn't tested after design. June 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by A Real Pain First time having to replace the string and I cannot get the spool retainer off. Looked at replacing the entire String Head Assembly and it costs $30!!! Half the weed wacker!! I would NOT recommend this terrible product! August 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works well My last Homelite weed eater the exhaust manifold bolts broke, (think someone that used it abused it),but other than that never had a lick of trouble with it so decided to buy another. I like Homelite products, have a few others also. August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Badchoice2 I hate to admit it but I've purchased 2 of these, They were easy to start for the most part, Into the 2nd year, my original one apparently got so hot, the nylon cord melted inside the housing, I thought it must have been a rare occurrence, Naturally, I did not buy an extended warranty, nor could I locate the receipt. Due to the price I purchased a second one. Shame on me, The first time I needed to add string, the knob was difficult to remove, As a result, the plastic housing holding the bolt broke. Fortunately, I had the one from the original trimmer. This year marks the second season for the 2nd trimmer. It won't start, One of the fuel lines in the tank has actually dissolved. The fuel line on the original trimmer is the same way. This is a single season use and discard tool, August 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid product, great price This is the second one of these I've purchased, and I have no regrets. I use it on 4 residential accounts and the previous one, despite having some issues, lasted me three years. This one far exceeds the previous. I've always had issues trying to rewind string onto a trimmer, but the directions and design make it a snap. Yes, it's a $70 string trimmer, but you get a solid piece of equipment for that price. I love this one and will likely be buying another in another three years. August 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by worst piece of yard equipment I've ever owned Extremely difficult to get started. Stalls out easily when tilted. Stupid string loader, impossible to untangle. Nothing works the way it's supposed to. I should have returned it the first time I used it, when I had a hard time getting it started. I assumed I just wasn't used to it, and that I would get the hang of it. Wrong! It should take me 20 minutes to trim my yard; every time I've used this, it's taken at least an hour because I have to mess around with it so much. I've only used it three times, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to just throw it away. Useless, just useless. What a waste of money. July 10, 2016
