    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.

Bogs down at full thouldel tryed to adjust carberator


Hi
This is either a clogged muffler or carb. Take the off and see if it will rev. If not you need to clean carb and install a carb repair kit. Do not run long with muffler off.

Not running at full throttle


close to the carb you will find two tiny screws. They are labeled H and L. L sets the idle speed. H sets the max RPM. Hold the throttle wide open and turn the H screw. When you find the very top end, back it down some or it will be running too lean. That would make it run hot, and provides less lubrication. Could result in engine failure if you run it too lean.

How do I adjust needle valves on a 25cc Homelite UT08111A Backpack leaf blower?


Set the lowend & highend needles to about 1 3/4 to 2 turns each. Choke the carb or prime it, until the carb is wet. Fire up the engine and let it warm up. Let's set the topend first since it's the easier of the two. Go to full throttle. Adjust the topend needle for peak RPM. Leave it wide open for about a minute to see if it changes any. Should the engine go lean, open the lowend needle slightly, if this dosen't work... you will have to adjust the needle valve inside the carb.( I will explain this later) If the topend runs OK, then slowly pull the throttle down until the engine begins to "four cycle" hold the throttle there. Adjust the lowend needle until the "four cycling" barely stops. Now lower the throttle more until it "four cycles" again, and adjust the lowend again. Keep doing this until you reach full idle. Now, from full idle begin to throttle up until the engine starts to bog or hesitate. Open up the lowend needle just enough to eliminate the bog or hesitation.

Problems with my HomeLite UT20760 bogs down, no power


try this
you need to locate your muffler and find screws that remove a screen behind a plate you can remove on the muffler or behind the muffler itself
This screen is a spark arrestor screen and needs to be cleaned and put back or some would say discard all together, but i didnt say that.
give it a look see
this may be your problem and maybe not?
if it was you will see a trmendous difference afterwards

Blower wont run at full throttle


Start with the spark plug it is the easiest.

But sounds like the carbourator is dirty, Probably fouled with old gas varnish. When it is idling give it a little throttle, flip the choke on and then full throttle. If it goes full throttle and doesn't conk out, it is a fuel issue.

Good Luck

Engine cut out


On the bottom of the carb. there is a plate held on by one screw, take that plate off and very lightly clean the screen on the carb with a bread tie wire, this worked very well for me. Mine runs great now:)
