Craftsman leafblower running worse

2-year old craftsman leafblower still starts fine but doesn't have the power it once did. Rattles loudly (like metal on metal) when idling. Starting to spray oil from the case. Is it worth repairing?

Pull the muffler and look for scoring on the piston. I think you cooked it my friend. You may have a bad coil or fuel cap, but it's more likely you ran the mix too lean.

I have an old craftsman leafblower it will run but seem to strian to run at full speed n I have rebuild crab too new fule line new gas check compression it abt 90 lbs


Most likely suspects: 1) Carbon in the spark arrestor screen. 2) Carbon in the muffler. 3) Carbon in the exhaust port.

To prevent this issue in the future you should use a 50:1 ratio for you fuel mix.

Hope this is helpful,

CRAFTSMAN LEAFBLOWER TROUBLE


After you do the above, try to clean out the fuel line. It may only be letting in a small amount no matter the throttle control.

Craftsman gas leafblower


Hey Karl,

To me this sounds like its getting too much fuel after it has been warmed up so either there is too much gas flow to the unit or there is not enough. check your primer bulb once this happens if there is a full bulb when it shuts down chances are its getting too much gas, if its empty then its not getting enough and your fuel filter could be starting to plug up or is not in the tank properly.

Craftsman gas leafblower


All small engines take a few minutes to warm up...especially so as they age.

You have to learn to 'feather' the throttle to very, very slowly increase the gas.

After it is warmed up, you are much more likely able to rev it up...release, etc.

I've had many over the years, and this is a very common problem...that you learn how to handle.
