If your using a spark plug socket, theres a rubber grommet inside to protect the ceramic plug. sometimes they can be a tight fit to seat properly.

CHANGE SPARK PLUG ON TORO CCR 3650 SNOW BLOWER


First disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Then use a socket wrench to remove the spark plug. Install the new spark plug into the cylinder head and reconnect the spark plug wire. The Toro CCR 3650 uses a NGK BPMR4A plug gapped to 0.032".

My echo backpack leaf blower pull start seems stuck it wont crank


Without getting to involved with it, did you always mix the correct fuel/oil ratio? or has someone else possibly put straight gas in it without oil? Another possibility is that the recoil could be broke. I would try to determine if the piston is seized in the cylinder. First remove the spark plug and try to pull the starter rope while listening closely for any strange noises from the engine. If it pulls fine then, replace the spark plug and try to start it again. If that doesn't work then I would remove the back cover and remove the muffler so you can look at the cylinder. You will need a phillips screwdriver and a set of metric allen wrenches. Hope that helps.

Cant start my craftsman leaf blower


Chances are your carburator has dirt in it.
It doesn't take much to clog those little carbs.
Empty the gas tank and clean it.
Purchase a can of small engine carburator cleaner. Comes in a spray can for about $5 at Home Depot or Lowes.
Remove the carburator and disassemble it.
Soak the body in clean gasoline for about 15 minutes if you can, agitate it to help the gas disolve any clogs.
Clean the ports with the spray cleaner to blow out any debris.
Reassemble and remount the carb.
Remove, clean and gap the spark plug
Refuel the gas tank with new clean gas
