Solo 471 blower lost power

I will try and help with your question. Could you please tell me if the throttle on your carb is fully activated when your trigger is squeezed. Or is there still more travel on the carb? I'm looking at each possible fault individually, In this case, many back pack blower have adjustable throttles to take any slack out of the throttle cable, and yours may have slipped. But I am unfamiliar with your machine so require a little more information.

It won't start

How long has the gas been in the Blower?
If it was 10% Ethanol gas( lie most States sell at the gas pump) and it has been in the Blower for more than a few months, you probably have carburetor issues.

Sounds like a fuel starvation problem, Strip and clean carb. Avoid using airlines to clean carbs. remove low and high adjustment screws, reset to factory settings. Walbro carbs are generally scew both of them back in all the way and then turn out 2 full turns each anticlockwise.

Solo 471KAT will not start hot....runs fine when started cold

Check your (gas) mix, it sounds 'hot' >>> not enough oil. Mix is the easiest thing to mess up and causes the most problems.

Starts fine, idles fine, when I rev it up to full throttle it runs at full RPMS for 8-10seconds, then looses RPMs gradually then revs back up gradually! Also, this is a Sears Professional 360.796900, but...

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, (,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.
