This is not a problem
you need to remove all the fuel
and remove your spark plug add new fuel and with the spark plug out pull it over many times to purge the system now install a new spark plug and you will be fine

Homelite ut-08068-r leaf blower leaking fuel


If we are talking about a hand held leaf blower. The fuel leaking from the carb is likely caused by a stiff metering diaghram holding the needle open. Rebuild your carb ( I suggest also replacing the fuel lines and primer bulb while you are at it) and double check the lever adjustment.

I have a Homelite "Vac Attack" leaf blower model


The fuel line is replaceable by itself, you don't need a new tank. Just make sure you get the same size line or it will leak where it goes into the tank. Any local small engine repair shop should have the line. There are two lines that go into the tank, the pickup line has the filter on it. It not only filters the gas but keeps the end of the line down in the fuel.

I put diesel gas in my backpack blower and now it won't start! Can it be fixed or is it toast?


If it never started after putting in diesel fuel it is definitely fix able. Carb and fuel lines will have to be cleaned. If it did run a while there is still a shot. If this is a 4stroke model, good chance just clean out carb and fuel lines. If 2 still a good shot I have had success with same problem. Pull it over and see if it still has compression if so your probably good to go with the cleaning I mentioned above.

Yard broom leaf blower will not stay running I


It seems that the carb is not getting fuel. It could be a cracked fuel line. The fuel priming bulb could also be cracked/dry rotted. Possibly the fuel pump in the carb is bad. The carb is rather intricate and not something anyone without training should try to repair. The overhaul kit will cost $15 to $20. I suggest you take the blower to a repair shop.

Sounds like its starving for fuel.
Try fishing the filter out of the fuel tank with a piece of bent wire,
remove of hose and back flush with carby cleaner a few times reinstill and see if it works.

Hello:

Have you Removed the Muffler and Checked the Exhaust Port and Muffler for Carbin Restriction?
Remove the Muffler and Start the Unit. If the Operates Correctly, then the Spark Arrestor Screen is Clogged and the Muffler/Screen Requires Replacing.
Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Not Restricted Also.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck

Respectfully

My homelite yardbroom 2 won't start. Maybe wrong gas/oil mix


Hi
If you remove the fuel you believe to be the mixture out of the fuel tank and refuel with the correct mixture then remove the air filter. Put a few drops of the correct mixture in to the intake it should start. it may take a few times of repetting putting the fuel in to the intake, but eventually it will clean out the bad fuel and run good.Remember to replace the air filter!
