Craftsman leaf blower

I have a leaf blower that will start but when you try to idle it up it dies any help appreciated

    Mine starts up fine and I can manipulate it into staying on by adjusting the control knob from half and/or full throttle back to full choke, back to half choke, and back into throttle. After 10 or 15 seconds in either throttle, it starts to die and I have to move it back to full choke again and repeat the process. I replaced the spark plug and the gas cap (had fuel leaking out of it) but didn't make a difference. I'm thinking either carb needs cleaned or there's a leak somewhere in the engine.

Hi

Check the fuel lines,fuel filter and clean the fuel tank.Disassembly the carb and clean it carefully.Diafragm type carb has a fuelpump,pay attention to it ,has to be tighten not folded.When the engine gets warm ,the fuelpump cannot keep the right proportion of fuel and the air/fuel mixture is changing.It has to be changed.

My craftsman 200mph/430CFM 25cc leaf blower will start and last for about 5 mins. on half choke and then die out and not start. It cant be put on run or it will die right away.eplaced spark plug. Still...


check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.May need to clean or replace carburetor.

NEED TO SET IDLE SCREW AND MIX SCREW ON A GAS LEAF BLOWER


Hello,

The Idle screw should just touch the throttle lever to start, the low speed should be set at 1 to 1.5 turns out from lightly seated, and the high speed should be set the same. Final adjustments are made only after it has been warmed up. If you adjust before 2 minutes of use the mixture will be too rich.

Hope this helps

Could be a blocked vent on your fuel tank - is there a vacuum in the fuel tank immediately after it stalls?

Craftsman blower stalls when choke is disengaged


You need to play with the timing adjustment, either on the spark plug, or the gap between the contact and the magneto.
That'll do it ;)

Homelite ut o8107 blower 25cc will only idle


Hello:

Have you Removed the Muffler and Checked the Exhaust Port and Muffler for Carbin Restriction?
Remove the Muffler and Start the Unit. If the Operates Correctly, then the Spark Arrestor Screen is Clogged and the Muffler/Screen Requires Replacing.
Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Not Restricted Also.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck

Respectfully
