    Check gas line. My line from the gas tank to engine had a small **** where it enters the tank. I pulled the the tube further into the tank and replaced spark plug. Unfortunately it still does not start. Do you think the **** in the line is still the problem even though it is inside the gas chamber?

    Same problem. Slightly over 2 years old with only about 10 hours on it. Worked fine one day, then 2 weeks later wouldn't start. No spark at all. Tried new plug - nothing. Pulled everything apart to check connections, but everything seems okay.

I am having the same problem with my blower of the same model, no spark. Mine was manufactured in 09-05, so the warranty has ran out. I have not taken it apart yet, is it difficult to take apart and what should I look for? Is there anyway of diagnosing the ignition problem? What do replacement parts cost?

Have you checked your fuel filter? Check the return wire from the magneto on the flywheel & the GND wire connection on the coil. I do need a little more detail in steps you have attempted. I wish you well in your repair.

What makes spark for plug?

In a 2 stroke the spark usually is generated by a magneto, coupled to a coil, rather than the voltage being supplied by a battery as in a car.

This is essentially a rotating magnetic field which produces a low voltage insufficient for the spark plug. That then is transformed to a high voltage by the coil, but with a low current, producing a fat spark for a fraction of a second.

So if the engine is hard to start, it could be

- worn piston rings causing low compression
- dirty air filter (doesn't take much in a 2 stroke)
- worn magneto breaker points (if fitted)
- cracked high voltage lead to the plug
- dirty or incorrectly gapped plug (discount this of course)
- mixture screws incorrectly adjusted

This may assist

No fire on echo pb200 leaf blower

I would check to see if the spark plug is firing first off and if it is ok check the plug wire and make sure there is no damage to it. If that is ok then you probably have a bad coil. You can use a spark plug tester and see if you are getting fire from the coil if not you will need to replace it. If you change the coil be sure to note the air gap between the coil and the flywheel then set the new one to approx. the same distance. Hope this helps.

The blower stopped running and hasn't started since. Checked replaced plug and and its not getting any fire What to do?

If you aren't getting any spark then either the coil is bad or the coil is receiving a signal telling it not to fire... in that case, unplug the stop switch and retry.. if it still doesn't fire then the only other thing is to check the coil clearance . Use a business card, stick it between the flywheel magneto.and the coil tips... loosen the bolts on the coil and let the coil stick to the tighten back up the bolts, rotate the flywheel as u pull the card out... now try it. If you still have no fire then the verdict is a bad coil..

I have a broken spark plug wire. Can these be replaced?


Yes, the spark plug wire can be replaced, but you have to buy the ignition coil as the spark plug wire is hard wired into the ignition coil.

If the metal spark plug connector has disconnected from the spark plug wire, the connector can be replaced, but if the spark plug wire has been cut you'll need to replace the ignition coil.

The unit uses a magneto system. To test the module remove the black wire from the module then reassemble unit and test for spark ( spinning by hand will not work, you need to use the starter rope to get the needed RPM to create a spark). If you have no spark with the ground wire disconnected the module is bad and needs to be replaced. If you DO have spark with the ground wire disconnected then you have a pinched wire going to ground or a bad stop switch

What is the correct fuel mixture for a ry08510 blower?

Page 11 of your owner's manual states a 50:1 mix. That is 2.6 ounces/gallon of gas, or 1.3 ounces/half gallon. Here is your manual.

It wont spark at all. No fire. Just put a new spark plug so that's not the issue. This lawnmower is only 1.5 years old. Thanks

Could be magneto bad, wire from magneto bad, ground on magneto bad, or the clearance between the flywheel and the magneto is rusted up if it was outside. Clean flywheel with sandpaper and set magneto gap using a match book flap.

Homelite ut08107 will not fire. no spark at plug.

It may be the coil if there is not any spark. Or a wire could off at the coil. One more thing it could be is the spark plug wire may have came loose from the coil. These a few thing to check.
