check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

Hi

Check the fuel lines,fuel filter and clean the fuel tank.Disassembly the carb and clean it carefully.Diafragm type carb has a fuelpump,pay attention to it ,has to be tighten not folded.When the engine gets warm ,the fuelpump cannot keep the right proportion of fuel and the air/fuel mixture is changing.It has to be changed.

There is a round grille on the bottom of the unit. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the latch to release it and reveal the vacuum opening. You should have a two-piece intake pipe that will attach to the opening.

The collection bag attaches to the smaller outlet where the blower pipe used to be (unscrew the wing nut to release the blower pipe). The bag clips onto the hooks at the base of the opening.

I have a Craftsman Leaf Blower (made by McCullough) and the fuel tank is leaking - need a new tank. Model #316-794990, Part #MC 9228-334506. Thank you!


Before you spring for a new tank, check that the leak is not coming from around the fuel lines. If the fuel lines are not soft and plyable then they can not seal with the tank and may be the cause of the leak. They are replaceable and if that is the case you can get fixed up for a few dollars in parts.

Starts but will not run


its a fuel issue. check fuel lines and fuel filter. If fuel lines are discolored or brittle or if filter has become unattatched from line- the fuel lines need replaced. Then carb needs adjusted ( turn low speed jet out 1/2 turn) or rebuilt

Sounds like you have dirt in carburetor.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

RYOBI RBL-30MVA 30cc when pressing the primer bulb to allow petrol thro, nothing happens? and as its not letting the petrol thro, the leaf blower will not start....any suggestions? thanks ben.


The diaphragm in the carb may need to be replaced. Make sure all your fuel lines are fine. On these inexpensive blowers the fuel lines tend to get brittle and crack and fall apart.
