    Do you smell gas? and when you changed the plug did you check the gap of the plug it should only be about 1 mm which is very small and most often is not set close out of the package.

    On the carberator is a 1" square cover, if you look very close at it you will see a tiny hole in it, this is to allow air in and out from behind a rubber fabric diafram, this is your fuel pump. If there is debri holding it from pulsing or a hole in it you will not pump gas. Take the 4 screws out and inspect and clean the diafram and cavity.

SOURCE: Leaf blower will not achieve full RPM's

try removing the muffler and scraping out any carbon build up in the exhaust mouth of the block. if that doesnt help you will probably need to replace the carb.

SOURCE: wont start, not getting fuel, checked lines,carb and used starter fluid, runs but won't continue to run

You may need to do a more detailed cleaning on the carburetor. I like to use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to get into the small ports. They work great for this job. You may also need to check the small screen in carb. It gets blocked with debris.If you need further assistance, please contact me.

SOURCE: leaf blower won't start. I think it's the module

If you haven't done it already, install a new plug. It's possible you're being fooled by a faulty/fouled plug. A fouled plug may not spark visibly - like if there is dirt down in the recesses of plug around the electrode. It would be a good idea to check it with a new plug before spending $80 bucks for a new ignition module.

Does the 4cycle backpack blower have a filter on the carb ? if so where can i buy one ?

There is a screen inside the card to keep out the big stuff.
There may not be enough room to install a filter.
See a motorcycle shop with a piece of the fuel line in hand.

Gas and oil mixed in 4 cycle backpack leaf blower

If it is a 4 cycle blower, you do not mix oil with the fuel....It takes straight Gas. there is an oil cap to put engine oil in crankcase, this only usually takes 2,3,4 oz. of oil. Sounds like your Spark Plug probably fouled out from having oil mixed in your gas. I would recomend changing your Spark Plug and put some Fresh GAS only in the blower, dump the old stuff out !!! You should be on your way Blowing in No Time !

My 4 cycle BP blower will run with the choke halfway, but not fully opened or fully closed. The throttle will not increase speed, either. What would you suggest? It takes a good 5 minutes with choke...

The carburetor needs to be cleaned and/or adjusted so if you do that, you may as well install a low price gasket and diaphragm kit in it. This will alleviate all the problems that you mention. I don't know your model number else I could give you the part number for the carb kit to install. This solution works most of the time.

The blower will start but does not go to full throttle. This just started happening after two seasons.

Check and make sure the air cleaner is can clean it out with soap and water.make sure it is dry before you put it back in.if that doe,s not work try cleaning the carb and rebuilding it or replacing it.
