You must take the carburetor off and clean it and put a repair kit in it. This should bring it to life. donnyb60

The blower will start after you go through the Full choke then it goes dead. Move to half choke. It cranks and runs wide open for 2 -4 seconde and goes dead. Does this over and over. Will not stay running....

Check the following, and then clean or replace:
  • Fuel Filter - Located INSIDE the fuel tank
  • Spark Plug
  • Spark Arrestor - at Muffler
  • Carburetor - May need a rebuild kit
Also watch this...

and this one...

I can't get my blower to accelerate. It will only idol on full choke. If you pull trigger it bogs down. I replaced the fuel line and sprayed carb out.

Check the following, and then clean or replace:
  • Fuel Filter - Located INSIDE the Fuel Tank
  • Spark Plug
  • Spark Arrestor - at muffler
  • Carburetor - May need a rebuild kit
Watch this as well...

Pb-413 blower. starts w choke, then stalls when choke is taken off. wont run at full throttle without choke on about 90%

Most likely there's a problem with fuel supply - choking cuts air supply optimizing the air/fuel mix. Most common solution is to check and clean the carburetor.

If there's a tiny fuel filter in the fuel line between tank and carburetor check it on excessive pollution. Replace it when necessary.

When opening the blower for carburetor cleaning - also check the airfilter and replace when dirty.

If never opened the blower - take pictures with a digital camera at each step. The pictures can help with assembly after cleaning.

It doesn,t turn over at all has new spark plug bowl is full gas lines are good pull cord is good help

Remove spark plug and and ensure there is actually a spark when the machine is cranked.
Ensure air filter is clean. Foam elements can be washed with hot water and detergent, squeezed dry in a cloth and re-oiled with a teaspoon of engine oil spread through the foam. Paper elements can be cleaned with compressed air blown from the inside of the filter but ideally should be replaced.
Check fuel lines aren't kinked or blocked restricting fuel flow.
Ensure fuel filter isn't dirty. This is probably located at the end of the fuel line in the tank.
Remove the air filter and check the choke plate closes ok when choke is turned on.
Air locks in the fuel lines will also cause this symptom. These can be caused by running the machine with low fuel level in the tank and cutting upside down or at a sharp angle.
To remedy this keep pressing the primer button i present until it feels spongy and fills with fuel.

I have a bvm 200,it will start but want get up to regular high spee and backfires what is wrong?

If it is backfiring when you are moving the throttle to increase air speed (along with not getting to top speed), the engine is running too lean, which means it is getting too much air and not enough fuel. You need to check the following things to find out what the problem is. Does it start on full choke? Does it start on half choke? If it runs when it is choked and there are no backfires when it is choked, the engine is definitely running lean. There are several things you can check, I am providing a list for you:

First, check the muffler and make sure it is solid and on the engine exhaust port tight.

Next, check the air filter...if there is no air filter put one in!

Check the fuel filter in the tank, if it is clogged, the motor isn't getting enough fuel.

If all of these things check out ok, you will have to check the carburetor. When you inspect the carburetor, check and make sure it is clean. I don't think you will have to mess with carburetor adjustments, not unless you tinkered with it before coming here.

If all this checks out good, then you could have an air leak around the intake. The intake is the black piece that sits between the carburetor and the engine, there are two gaskets on this piece, one on each side, one or both of these could be deteriorating and allowing excess's a longshot but it could give you the problem you are talking about.

Try these and come back here if you don't find any of these things and let me know. We can move deeper into the engine if necessary but my bet is either the muffler needs to be tightened or replaced and the fuel filter needs to be replaced. Good Luck!

Echo gas leaf blower bog down

Likely dirt in high speed needle valve(H); could be leaky fuel line(air leaking in), plugged fuel filter, pinched fuel line, etc - anything restricting flow of fuel. Likely, you aggravated an existing problem by cleaning the air filter which would have been providing some choke effect if it were partially plugged.

Runs rough and only on full choke

Did you relpace the inline fuel filter? they need replacing every year due to fuel addtive required by the feds. Try that first then the primer bulb check valve could have dirt in it with the air cleaner off look into the carb port and press the button three or four times, if you see no fuel then replace the filter first then pull the gas bulbp apart and clean.

Troy-built TB320BV will not stay running

get a can of carbeurator cleaning spray. get a helper and as one of you runs the thing, the other will give it short bursts of carb cleaning spray right into the air intake, leave the filter off while you do this.
