Bad plug. even worse gas.
2 stroke oil breaks down and makes the fuel dirty after so long in the gas can. Also check your filter to assure its not got alot of leaf debris. -Jeff Anchorage Small engine repair.

Hasquvarna back pack blower locked up because of wrong mixture,i pulled the spark plug to check for compression lock up,but it seem more of an internal problem.


If you can observe through the exhaust and see the cylinder have the appearance similar to the image it is likely the cylinder and the piston are kaput(lost).

Parts are available and come in a kit with the piston and cylinder matched If the rings are not already on the cylinder than be very careful The rings are keyed in both up facing and angular position by a tab in the ring grove of the piston..

Troy-Bilt Hand-Held Blower dies when warm and throttle wide open


You reported that most of the items I would've suggested, you have checked...
Good job.
A couple more things:
  • Replace fuel filter, it's in the gas tank
  • Check and clean the Spark Arrestor screen at muffler, when they plug up, it's a major restriction to exhaust gas flow
  • And check and adjust High/Low screws at carburetor, video attached.
  • And clean or install rebuild kit for carburetor
Good luck...

Ryobi 9600 backpack blower. Starts great. Set to run, continues running. Upon attempt to use throttle, engine dies. Acts like choking out but removed carb cover an choke is no closing.


this sounds strangely like the high speed jet/pathway in the carb is clogged up with something ,

the best way to fix it is dissasmbly and cleaning of carb in solvent , but ive also had some limited sucess in past of using car fuel cleaner (says on bottle "cleans as you drive") too

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
