    I have the same problem. Just bought this yesterday, assembled it and fueled it up and it started fairly easily. When I pull the trigger to open the throttle it bogs down and the engine quits.

    2 needle screw adjustments on the carb. One is marked H and the other L

  • Kenny Buston Oct 22, 2013

    L is for idle and H for high rpmsget it running and go after the one marked H. Turn it counter clock wise 1/4 turn and see if you get a bit more rpm's. you'll find if tirning one direction doesnt work go the other direction, untill you can have wide open throttle and High rpms. If this dosent work .youll need to remove the needle valves and flush the venturey, with compressed air or carb cleaner. Make sure your air filter is clean. you can test this by running the blower with the air filter removed. If you get high rpms with out the filter you dod not need to adjust the carb, you need to clean the filter or repllace it with a new one.I have replace air filters with a peice of sponge cut to size with a pair of sissors. But First make sure the sponge you intend to use will not melt when exposed to the fuel

I have let my leaf blower run and warm up before throttling up and still it bogs down and shuts down. There is no air cleaner to clean should I just blow out the carb. and fuel lines?
It runs and idles just no high speed to blow.

Talon electric chainsaw has no power, changed the fuse etc...any ideas??


talon chain saws have two control switches before they will start. One is the trigger that you pull and the other is a button or lever that has to be held in at the same time. These two controls mean that you have to have both hands clear of the chain before it works.

If it is electric it will stop every time you release the hand piece. If it is engine driven then check the throttle setting as it should unload the pump and go to idle.

If this is a diesel engine, you may need to have the injectors reset with an overhead or rack job. It could also be the injector pump.

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.)

My starter string broke on my troybilt lawn trimmer, how do i fix it


Disassembly of the covers and controls to that point will be needed. It takes a little bit of work, then you have to preload the spring tension on the recoil unit BEFORE you install new rope. A good little bit of labor involved....somewhat mechanically inlined?

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.

Pentair whisperflo 3/4 hp left running over an hour with no water


Sorry to have to tell you but you are going to have to either have your pump rebuilt or replaced. Sounds like you baked the plastic impeller and maybe did even more damage. These pumps require water in order to keep cool.
