It's probably dead. If the rope won't pull buy another and keep it for parts, the repair bill will be more than it costs. Spray some wd- 40 in the spark plug hole and let it sit for a couple days, IF it frees up you got lucky but don't expect it.

Backpack gas blower


Monching, You will have to hope there is not too much damage done already from running straight Gas. Empty all straight gas from blowers tank and refill with proper minimum 50:1 gas oil mix. Start blower and run on 1/2 throttle for a few minutes to be sure its going to be OK. If seized, you will have to try and unseize and if lucky it may run if not too much damage internally. You should run a heavier oil to gas mix 32 or 40:1 in an engine that's been seized. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I have a factory refurbished Ryobi ZR08510 blower/vac from the factory. I cannot get it started. What should I try first?


Hi Paul:
I'd start by pulling the spark plug, attaching it to the lead, then spin it over and check for spark.
This will probably be a 2 cycle motor (Check to confirm) so make sure your fuel is mixed correctly.

What is the gas oil ratio of the ryobi leaf blower


Most Ryobi products made in the past 5 years use a 50:1 fuel mix. Check the fuel cap to see if it is listed there. The older Ryobi product used a 32: 1 fuel mix ratio and it was usually listed on the sticker that shows you how to work the choke. If in doubt, go with the 32:1 ratio. The only thing it will cause is premature fouling of the spark plug. Too little oil in the mix will cause premature engine wear.

50:1 is 2.6 ounces of 2 cycle mix to each gallon (U.S.) of gasoline.
32:1 is 4.0 ounces of 2 cycle mix per gallon.

I recommend to use a 2 cycle mix that is specifically designed for lawn equipment and contains fuel stabilizer. The ones with stabilizer will usually be .5 ounces larger.

Good luck!

Wrong kind of gas


It sounds like you used gasoline without oil in a two cycle engine. If so, the repair costs for damage to the engine, caused by running it without lubrication, may very well exceed the $250 to replace the leaf blower. However, I think it is worthwhile to have the repair shop take a look, anyway, before jumping to conclusions. Bring the leaf blower to the shop, explain what you think happened, and they should be able to check out the blower and advise you, without charging for a complete diagnosis.

Mb 3200 gas leaf blower will start when choke


The carburetor could need rebuilding or you have some bad gas. I would mix up some 2 cycle oil and fresh gas from the station. I would try the new fuel mixture first.
Good Day.
