Hello I have a ryobi electric blower.40 v. It does well for about 20 min then dies. The battery shows 1 cell used and the other 2 full. Neither the housing or the battery are hot. When I try to start it the next day literally it starts for about 20 seconds then dead again. Please help, it has only been used about 8 times. I just got it a month ago.

Can i directly hook up the neg and positive wire to my cell battery and charge it

popped off the battery cover and noyiced the + & - signs on the battery almost lined up perfectly with the contacts on the sides
so fugurring that since the charge from USB port, figured the 5V 0.5A power source would work for the same side connectors. cut up the seperate USB cable layng around and stripped down the red (+5V) and black (Gnd ) wires.
from there bunched them up and stuffed the red one into the left contact and taped it down with electrical tape and then did the same with the black wire in the right contact. make sure to use as much wire as you can without touching the 2 wires/contacts and taped them down seperately and nice and firm.
plugged in to the computer for about 25 min and it was completely drained and nearly 1/4 full power.wait for to get it fully charged and then just bring this cable and electrical tape with you and you can charge your cell with your lap top

Trouble starting & dies soon after starting

What about the fuel filter in the frame? Did the Ford mechanic check it?
Is a diesel? If that is the case, it could be the electric cellanoid switch in the injector pump. But usually it would start and stop it would just shut down with that.

Thank you for using Fix Ya Your rating is always appreciated.
