    i have the same problem. i have also noticed that tilting the blower up & down will vary the rpms & that there is a lot of fuel around the air filter

    Same problem here. I have fuel leaking from the air filter and noted that it wouldnt start while in the choke position as directed. I had to tilt the blower away from me so that I was pulling the cord more vertical and leave the choke knob in the run position.

One suggestion, unscrew the spark plug and reconnect the high voltage wire. In a very dark area move the plug so that the plug thread touches some metal on the engine. Pull the starter cord. If you don't see a spark, remove the two screws on the handle and see if two wires are attached to the Stop Engine Switch. Remove one wire and bend it away from metal and try to see spark when pulling the start cord. If spark occurs, the Switch is shorted and needs replacing.

Homelite26b ran one day and will not start the next day I have changed the spark plug and bulb


Dump the fuel and mix up a fresh batch with some fuel system cleaner in it. You may have a partially blocked fuel passage.

If a system cleaning doesnt work check the fuel lines for damage. Many times the fuel line in the gas tank splits and you only get fuel when the level is above the break!

Be safe and good luck!

I have a homelite leaf blower model ut08544 that will not start


If a small engine wont start its usually one of two problems, its not getting gas, or its not getting spark. easy way to find out if its getting a spark is to remove the plug, put it back back in the connector and just let it hang down while you try to start it. you should see a bright blue spark, if you dont try changing the spark plug. if its getting a spark come back on this site and i'll help you trouble shoot it.

Homelite leaf blower bogs down.


I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas blowers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with gas blowers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time. Also make sure your spark plug is clean. If you are not sure, a new plug couldn't hurt.
Hope this helps!!
