Question about Leaf Blowers

1 Answer

PoulonPro Leaf Blower will not run properly

The leaf blower only surges. Rarely will it reach full power and run as it was designed. Spark Plug, air filter, gas filter all have either been replaced or cleaned. The model number is BVM200.

It will start, but the engine will only surge trying to catch and run at full speed.

    Tried all the above and still the same problem exists.  It will start without a problem, but it won't reach full power. When you try to get it to maximum, it only surges.  Compression tests indicate 60lbs and holding.  What next?

Sounds like you are running it with the choke on - is it spitting black smoke?

Gas blower engine surges and shuts off when engine gets hot


check your fuel lines for cracks, could be sucking air or could be your carb needs cleaning, make sure you clean the screen inside the carb, if you run it with the choke on partially does it smooth out and quit surging, if so it is definitely a fuel problem. Hope I helped you. 2StrokeJim

Blower not running at high rpm when full throttle. Cleaned air filter, gas vent, gas filter and spark plug. Blower is 3 years old. Have not bought any new replacement parts.


Try removing the muffler and look inside of the exaust port, you should be able to see the piston in the full opening of the port. If you can, try starting and running at wide open throttle. If it runs fine( a bit loud, so wear hering protection), then you have a plugged or partialy blocked muffler or spark arestor. Sometimes rich mixture can cause excessive carbon build up.

Hope this was helpfull.

The leaf blower won't start and I did change the spark plug and last time it run for like 30 sec. before it shut down again.


Main cause of small gasoline engine failure is carburetor clogged. Try spraying carburetor cleaner into carburetor and intake. Check if unit has air cleaner. If engine starts briefly with cleaner then carburetor needs manual cleaning. Carburetor removal and overhaul.

Stilh leaf blower and it surges


How old is it?

Your brief description of the problem points toward air in the fuel lines.

Remove the engine cover, and try to see how flexible the fuel lines are. If they are hard and brittle, it's time to change them.

If you need further assistance let me know.
