    leaf blower will not turn on afer attaching to power

  • 7thlaker Jan 05, 2009

    I have same problem, so I took the power head apart and found that the motor and the internal 2-speed switch are OK, except that you have to hold down the switch in either position. I can get the blower to run at both speads by bypassing the convoluted plastic switch activator, which is the real problem. Does anyone have a recommendation on where I can get a different 2-speed switch that I can somehow mount on the handle?

I bought a used b and d bv 2500 type 3 blower , it is hooked up to the vacuum , but i need the leaf blower , so what do i need to do to change it ? tks

There should be an attachment that connects to the air intake that covers the fan turbine preventing any injuries occurring from contact with the blades it also will prevent the motor from turning on if its not installed properly. Then the outlet tube needs to be connected thus converting it into a blower. You mentioned that you purchased it used so it may not have come with these items.

My 1998 cbr900rr isnt geting spark why

Try new plugs, wires, ect... look for shorts or anything that is grounding out. Also make sure that you have the right gap on the new spark plug, that can be a big problem. And don't forget to look for any rust or build up that could stop that electrical current.

What is the spark plug gap for weedeater bv 1850

You shouldn't need to set the gap on plugs when you buy them for handheld equipment. It should be close enough straight from the factory. You can find replacement spark plugs at

Homelite 26 BV Gas Leaf Blower

sounds like you had fuel leak into the cylinder over the winter. The liquid in the cylinder is what made it so hard to pull that first time, as it won't compress like air. What you do, is take the spark plug out, pull the starting rope several times, dry off the spark plug, and let both sit(plug out of the cylinder.) for a couple of hours. Then put the plug back in, put the wire back on it, put it on full choke, and pull until it hits once. Then put it on half choke, and pull til it starts.

Is there a collection bag that will work with a Craftsman electric blower/vac. A bag that fits over a trash can with an 8' hose similar to the Black and Decker bv-006

I have not heard of one for that unit. Plus I would not use it for vacuuming any way. All you need is for an acorn or piece of wood to hit the impeller.
It would break a couple of fins off the impeller. This would make the blower vibrate like crazy and you will not want to hold on to it. Plus the cost of repairs would exceed the cost of a new one.
Good Day.
