Poulan Leaf Blower red hot muffler

I've had this leaf blower for 4 years with no problems until a couple of weeks ago. While using it I noticed the motor was starting stall. I was able to play with the gas and keep it running, the second time it started to stall, I looked down and noticed the muffler was cherry red hot. I took the muffler off to see if it was clogged, but the muffler looks ok, Any Suggestions?

SOURCE: leaf blower starts and runns ok for few mins then

Target your inspection towards the 'spark arrestor screen' in the outlet of the muffler.

Overfuel or 'rich' condition
Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check Air filter for fuel saturation
4) Allow engine to run for 5 minutes to excess fuel from muffler
5) Fuel mixture ratio: Make sure the oil mix is per your manufactures recommendations
6) If after the above the engine is still smoking and blubbering:
Adjust carb mixture screws to a 'less rich' setting
*NOTE: only move mixture screws 1/8 of a turn at a time,
and try operation before any more adjustment

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, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),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.

SOURCE: POULAN FEATHERLITE LEAF BLOWER WILL ONLY RUN AT 1/2 CHOKE

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor, or rebuild it. Could be some debris in the jets of the carburetor. If the blower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank and not run at full speed. Hint: When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position. That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out. Please rate me, Thanks Good Luck, I hope this helped

My craftsman leaf blower won't start. It gets gas and spark. Is there an ignition issue I should be looking at. The same thing happened with my Poulan blower a couple of years ago and the re


Remove the carburetor carefully noting which fuel line goes where. Remove the section of the carb that the fuel lines attach to. Examine the main carb housing that attached to the part that you removed and you should see a very small screen that is probably blocked from fuel additives that the government requires. Clean that screen and reassemble and reinstall the carb and use fresh fuel/oil mix and use a fuel stabilizer in your mixed fuel.

Leaf blower runs on half choke


My craftsman leaf blower ran great for 4 years.. It stop running on me one day while using it.. I replace the carb, muffler and fuel filter with a new one.. it still will only run when the choke is half closed and don't run good doing that.. I have also noticed oil around the plug and muffler. I have to use either to get it started and I noticed when I pour a little oil in the spark plug hole before cranking it seems to run loner but not at full throttle think it might be piston rings shot.

Leaf blower does not respond when increasing throttle and engines


Unit is either having trouble picking up enough fuel or muffler is plugged. First disassemble the muffler and check that the flame arrestor screen is not clogged. Clean as needed. Cost, $0. Check fuel pickup line from fuel tank to carbureator for cracks. Replace if brittle or cracked. Next would be to check the diaphram in the carbureator. Even a small hole or crack can cause this problem.
