Question about Craftsman 4 Cycle Blower/Vac

2 Answers

Leaf blower will not continue running unless primer bulb is pushed intermittently

This is a 2 cycle blower. I just replaced the primer bulb and fuel lines on a Craftsman leaf blower. It starts fine but seems to run out of fuel. I can keep it running by pumping the primer bulb every 5-6 seconds. I checked the filter and it is not blocked. Lines are not kinked.

    My leaf blower starts fine and for about 10 minutes then it stalls. When I remove the air filter cover, I find the foam air filter soaked with fuel. Do you have any ideas what would cause this?

I have a Ariens snowblower deluxe 30 which is a year old. Starts fine and will run. Unfortunatley it is running way to low. I have replace the gas with fresh gas ran it through completely


It is very possible the carbureator needs a cleaning. Moisture can corrode the inner parts of them if left all summer. I find that the fuel usually does not go bad over the summer. I always start my snowblower once a month over the summer and then have no problems when the snow flies again. There was a time when mine was losing power and quitting also. There is a screw on the bottom of my carbureator that needed adjusting. If you are lucky that may be all you need. By turning mine in and out a bit I found the spot where the gas was correct and it worked fine again.

Hi we have a Massey Ferguson Dyna 4 5465 and it was working this morning and then it died we started it up and it ran for about 1/2 a minute when we try starting it now we can hear the fuel pump runs for...


am i to assume its a diesel ,if so sounds like its out of fuel but i could be wrong as its been many years since i have worked on tractors and all the fancy electronic gizmo on modern vehicles can confuse me.Now firstly check the key as no doubt as its a modern one it has a immobilisor and if the head of key loses its chip inside the key head it will never start unlike the old ones that would run on paraffin diesel or petrol ,the later ones were diesel only but again providing they had fuel and oil with the rad topped up they ran 24/7 ,thats a point check the oil level if its low it may stop the engine from starting

I have a newholland tm 130 that loses power and I think it is fuel related I have checked the electronic pump and that seems to have a good output any ideas


If you have good fuel pressure, Next I would remove an O2 sensor between the engine and catalytic converter. Take it for a drive. If you don't loose power, replace the catalytic converter/s. After that have a diagnoses done on the engine and transmission.

My weed eater will not run with the choke setting wide open.


You may have a pinhole or crack in the small hose that runs from the fuel tank to the carburetor. If equipped with a primer it may also have a small crack or pinhole. Either case may cause the carb to suck air instead of gasoline. Other possible reasons are a plugged muffler causing too much back pressure or a partially clogged fuel filter. (The fuel filter on many weed whackers are located inside the fuel tank at the end of the fuel line.)

Led christmas lights stay on when shut off


not neccecarily. leds have become so incredible efficient that the small currents from induction can be in some rare cases enough to dimly light them.(an unplugged extension cord running alongside another live wire will "pick up" some volts. not enough to light up regular bulbs but a led might). try it without the surge protector

My Pentair pool pump runs continuously even though it is set to auto on outside & inside panels.


If your pump is running constantly either the timer is set to "manual on" or the timer has failed. Check the settings on your timer. Usually on a mecanical timer the manual on lever is just under the 24 hour dial. On the electronic timers it is controlled by a relay that if it fails defaults to always run.
