Question about Black & Decker Leaf Hog 12-AMP Electric Blower/Vacuum #BV4000

Open Question

How do i take off the suction part and connect the blower?

Am I supposed to take off the suction part? My husband thinks that we might be missing something. The motor part with the suction part says Leaf Hog and the tube for the suctioning says the same. So I would guess that they go together.

If there is no fee for answering my question, then please do.
Do NOT answer if you plan on charging me for the assistance.
Thank you so much.

Put the switch in the center off position. That allows you to press the big black button in the front and take the vacuum attachment off. Replace the vacuum with the blower attachment and you should them be able to blow rather than vacuum.

Your leaf blower does not have a reset button unfortunately. The motor is a double insulated design and does not have any serviceable parts, the motor heads are replaced as a complete unit. There is one thing you can check. Since the wash cloth placed a huge strain on the motor, which in turn, increased the ampere in the circuit, it may have tripped a circuit breaker in your house fuse panel, causing no power to the outlet you were using.

Try Platt Electrical supply - 800-257-5288 ( BLACK & DECKER #89754-01 REPLACEMENT BRUSH. It seems the entire motor head was manufactured by DeWalt and is now obsolete. I don't know if these brushes will fit, but someone there may help.
Good Luck!

Priming echo BP251 liaf blower

Hi Norman:
I'd check the routing of the fuel lines.
Tank to carb (this is the line with the filter on it)
carb to bulb (suction side)
bulb to tank (return line)
If the connections appear correct but it does not pull gas, check the filter to make sure it is clean, and you can try reversing the connections on the bulb.
Hope this helps.

Poulan model: PPB430VS leaf blower. Won't start.

I think that those are suppose to be caps over the screw to discourage inadvertant tinkering with it. That way it is a deliberate act to get to them, if it is what I think it is.

For a competent expert to be able to answer your problem, you will need to give a specific make and model of your unit.
Also include as much as possible about what you have already tried to do to resolve the problem along with exactly what is not working or what the unit is not doing that it is supposed to do.
This will help us experts to be able to give you the correct advise the first time, without having to guess so much as to what is actually happening.

Thank you!

I can't find the switch to change from suction to blowing leaves. Can you help?

there is no switch - you must place the plastic on the unit and remove the round piece from the suction area. You need a copy of the instructions for sure. It is complicated to switch from one to the other and takes a long time. hardly worth bothering with for me

Husband put unleaded gas with the oil added due to a 2 cycle engine, now it won't run

not clear on the problem?
I think you mean he has to add 2 stroke oil to the gas then fill up the blower then start it but it won't start? If the mixture is wrong it wont run well if at all.
Check the spark plug has a spark (unscrew it rest it against metal body with HT lead attached and try to start it, keep clear of the lead tho don't hold it in place!! it can be shocking. Check the unit isn't flooded (very wet spark plug).
try starting it with no choke, try several times then gradually increase choke, is it try to run yet?

The fuel lines on my ryobi stinger scorpion brushcutter have deteriorated, I;ve fitted new lines but I think I;ve connected them incorrectly, it won't run.

Fuel filter to bottom of carb. The suction port of primer to the top of carb outlet line to other port to tank.
To tell which port is outlet put your finger on one port and push bulb if the bulb collapses and doesn't return then that is the inlet (suction) side.

PS. I would buy some carb cleaner and gently spray in the inlets of the carbs (sometimes pieces of the fuel lines get in there).
Good luck!
