Easy way to find out if its getting a spark is to remove the plug, put it back back in the connector and just let it hang down while you try to start it. you should see a bright blue spark

Won't start and no spark


For a blower to run it requires three things.
Proper fuel\air mixture.
Compression - the resistance you feel when hand cranking the engine.
Spark.

The spark has three key factors the circuit, spark plug, and ignition module. Make sure the run\stop switch in the ignition circuit is working, connected and is in the run position. Circuit OK then replace the spark plug. Last resort replace the ignition module.

I get no spark at plug


Hi joseph
To make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope...watching the plug for spark.
If you are getting a nice blue spark then skip A below and go to B.
A...If you do not get a nice blue spark then you may need to replace the electronic module.
Note: If you have to replace the module be sure to measure the position it is in and be sure to install it in the same position
Normally the clearance is around .10 thousandsands
Also write the measurement down on a piece of paper for later reference, this measurement is critical to starting of the engine later.
B...Also take some fine grit sandpaper (not emery) and lightly sand the flywheel where the magnet is located to clean any rust or corrosion from the magnet area.
You can also try to lightly sand the module metal face to increase the possibility of ignition of the old module before replacement.

Got a craftsman leaf blower cranks up and runs fine for about 5 mins then starts losing rpms


ITs hard to diagnose these things over the internet, it could be so many things.
Is this a gradual loss of power? If so; Im sorry to say; that it sounds like its losing compression as it warms up. It is not cost effective to repair the unit.

If the loss of power is more sudden it could be a failing ignition module. Ive even seen spark plugs that quit working when they get hot.

To test this you will need a proper spark tester, laying the spark plug against the head will not provide an accurate assesment, and a can of carb cleaner. Run the unit with the air box cover and filter removed till it fails and immediately give a shot of carb cleaner in the carb and restart. If it starts right up it could be fuel related. IF it doesnt start right up then quickly test for spark. If no spark then its likely the ignition module. If it wont run on the extra fuel and it has spark then it has probably lost compression.

Unable to start my 155BT blower. Have changed


Is the new spark plug wet? If not, the machine is not getting fuel (fuel filter, carb, etc.) If the plug is wet, you may not be getting spark (bad ignition module, short in switch/harness, bad plug (yes it does happen with even new plugs)), or flooding due to incorrect starting procedure or clogged airfilter. Stale fuel can also cause an engine not to start as it lacks volatility. If in doubt, take it to your local dealer.

I have a Poulan BVM200VS gas blower. The plug won't fire. It has a new spark plug and a new ignition module. The kill switch is good. What little wiring there is seems to be good. If you spin the flywheel...


It is possible that the gap between the module and the flywheel is not correct. This gap is usually set with some thin card stock or possibly a playing card.

It is important that this gap is not too large.

I have a homelite leaf blower model ut08544 that will not start


If a small engine wont start its usually one of two problems, its not getting gas, or its not getting spark. easy way to find out if its getting a spark is to remove the plug, put it back back in the connector and just let it hang down while you try to start it. you should see a bright blue spark, if you dont try changing the spark plug. if its getting a spark come back on this site and i'll help you trouble shoot it.
