Homelite yard blower won't start

My leaf blower started fine one day, and the next day it won't start. I tried changing the spark plug but that hasn't helped.

    My yard broom worked last time-3 weeks ago but won't start now. It is not getting any spark. I took it to a repair shop that wanted $100 to repair it by putting on a new coil. Not worth the expense. My blower is only two years old and used very little. Again...not firing and must be completely disassembled to get to replace coil including the handle assembly and recoil. Any suggestions?

1st how old is the gas and 2nd how long did it sit for since you last used it? If there was any old fuel left in before now (more than 14 days) than it is possible your carb needs cleaning. If it's less than 14 days then you might want to check the compression. IF you have good compression, then you might want to take it to a service center to have it diagnosed.

SOURCE: leaf blower

One suggestion, unscrew the spark plug and reconnect the high voltage wire. In a very dark area move the plug so that the plug thread touches some metal on the engine. Pull the starter cord. If you don't see a spark, remove the two screws on the handle and see if two wires are attached to the Stop Engine Switch. Remove one wire and bend it away from metal and try to see spark when pulling the start cord. If spark occurs, the Switch is shorted and needs replacing.

Homelite26b ran one day and will not start the next day I have changed the spark plug and bulb

Dump the fuel and mix up a fresh batch with some fuel system cleaner in it. You may have a partially blocked fuel passage.

If a system cleaning doesnt work check the fuel lines for damage. Many times the fuel line in the gas tank splits and you only get fuel when the level is above the break!

Be safe and good luck!

I can not get my craftsman leaf blower to start. I put a new spark plug and fresh gas. Won't start.

Not to sure without seeing or hearing it being pulled over. Compression? Very likely needs some carb work/kit.
