Question about Ryobi Garden

1 Answer


I bought this last week and so far, the performance has been extremely disappointing. Generally, it starts OK although it doesn't seem possible to re-start a warm engine from the ''run'' position- it always has to go back to full throttle.

The main problem is the vac & in particular the blower. Advertised as 155mph, I thought there would be a seriously strong gale coming out of the vac. Instead, when I put my hand over the tubes, it is barely stronger than my wifes hairdryer. This is brand new and the tubes are not clogged - I checked. Any suggestions?

How to repair Toro Super Blower no longer blowing, only vacs/intakes?

when you remove the vac part there should be another "grid type" part that snaps in place of the vac tube. This engages the safety switch and keeps your fingers out of the impeller.

I have a Craftsman 794774 leaf blower/vac w/25cc engine that won't start.

Many of these small blowers have an alloy key moulded into the flywheel, if this has sheared it will knock the ignition timing out, and will never run.

Ryobi ry34441 hard to start, when started runs very low rpm's then dies.

It really does sound like the exhaust or the spark arrestor is blocked ( or the exhaust port itself is carboned up ) remove the muffler, check the exhaust port, if this looks ok, run the machine with a very slack muffler aqs a test, if ir revs then it is blocked.

Just started bogging down when I try to give it gas.

Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn

*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
5) carburetor gaskets/diaphragms

Inspect the fuel line in the tank, it should be long enough to fall to the bottom of the tank whatever the operating position. It sounds like it may not be picking up fuel in a certain position.

Ryobi 33cc wont start

Assuming you still have evidence of fuel in the cylinder after carb work; and still have visible spark across the plug, I would install a new spark plug. It is fairly common for a spark plug to cease working under pressure in a cylinder while appearing ok outside of the engine.

Died and will NOT start.

I experienced a similar problem with mine and I replace the little plastic tube that is immersed into the fuel. It had some stuff in it and preventing fuel from getting to the engine. It was only about 1.50 to replace.
