Homelite 26D leaf blower bogs down in Run position

I have a homelite 26D leaf blower that I can crank it up fine but when I put it in the run position it bogs down and shuts off. I put a new spark plug and fuel filter in it and it still bogs down in the run position. What is the problem?

    I have a Model UT08131, when you tilt the nozzle down to blow leaves it stops. You must have the gas tank completly full to make it run in this positon.

    Ihave Homelite 26D ran Great and went on vacation and now will not start. I have had it for less than a year and have never had any troubles with it. I changed the plug thinking that it may have fouled out. Not the problem. Took the plug out and checked for spark and it started the gas it blew out on fire. Pulled cord with plug out and made sure there was no gas in the cylinder and still will not try to fire. Any suggestions. I do not have the manuel packed it up because I am in the process of moving.

My Homelite gas leaf blower will crank but will only run for a few seconds. I have changed the spark plug and checked the fuel line but have not been able to fix the problem. What else should I check?


check the "check valve" in the gas cap. open the cap slightly and start the blower. If it runs then it is probably a faulty check valve. Buy a new cap.

Bogs down at full thouldel tryed to adjust carberator


Hi
This is either a clogged muffler or carb. Take the off and see if it will rev. If not you need to clean carb and install a carb repair kit. Do not run long with muffler off.

BX 90 homelite leaf blower two idle screws


The initial setting is 1 1/2 turns out. Screw them all the way in and them turn them 1 1/2 turns out. This is the starting position and should start, it may need some final adjustments to run like you need it to run.
Remember more the screw is out the more fuel it will get.
Good Day.

Homelite leaf blower bogs down.


I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas blowers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with gas blowers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time. Also make sure your spark plug is clean. If you are not sure, a new plug couldn't hurt.
Hope this helps!!
