Question about Stihl Bg 55

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...

Did you replace the fuel? Stale ethanol / gasoline fuel can cause this problem. Get fresh 100% gasoline, then mix in the proper amounts of synthetic 2 cycle oil, and SeaFoam (a gasoline additive) and give that a try. Retrace your steps, making sure your fuel line work is correct. Take the air filter off, if the blower runs properly without the air filter, then it's time for a new one. Take the fuel filter off, if the blower runs properly without it, then it's time for a new one. If it's still not running then it may be time for a new carb, because Ethanol gas destroys carbs. It's not worth the time and hassle to get a carb rebuild kit, just get a new carb.

This part fits your Leaf Blower. Husqvarna fuel filter. If the fuel filter is clogged, it willrestrict the flow of fuel to the carburetor. As a result, the engine may not start.

There may be a plugged fuel filter in the fuel tank, or perhaps you have the oil mix to rich. other problems could be that it needs a new spark plug or carburetor adjusted.
Try spraying the carb out with carb cleaner, add a little seafoam in with the gas.

Blower runs at idle then when you give it gas it bogs down until it shuts off


try to choke it part way and see if it still bogs down, if it does then check your exhaust screen, if partial choke helps it then check fuel lines for cracks, fuel filter for being dirty and also remember fresh gas too, if all else fails clean your carb out.

Ryobi backpack blower will run all day with choke up but as soon as I pull the trigger it starts bogging down


Thats a lean condition. Check fuel lines and fuel filter. If the fuel ilnes are discolored or stiff or really super mushy, If the fuel filter has become detatched from the fuel line then the fuel lines need to be replaced.
If the carb can be adjusted you can try to adjust but its likely that the carb should be rebuilt with new diaghrams and gaskets.
Adjust by turning the low speed screw out ( counterclockwise) 1/2 a turn. The low speed screw is always the one closest to the motor and usually marked on the carb body with an 'L'. When you richen a motor up the idle will drop so you will probably have to turn the idle screw in 1/2 a turn. 1 and 1/2 turns out from light bottom is standard starting point ( 2 turns for poulan products). If you get more than 3 and 1/2 turns out on the low speed screw or if turning the screw has little or no effect then the carb should be rebuilt.

Idles but stalls when throttled


If you have the TB2BP EC Troybilt backpack and it bogs down or begins to stall out at full throttle with choke in FULL OPEN try the following:
1. Do the simple stuff first, Check spark plug, air filter and clean or replace if necessary.
2. Remove air filter cover, open choke and spray out the carb with carb cleaner.
3. Inspect carb and look for a flat surfaced screw with a small V notch on the side of it. It will be on the top side just forward of where the fuel lines connect. If you find it don't waste any more time looking for the High and Low fuel adjustment screws (there aren't any) this is the only adjustment other than the throttle adjustment screw you'll find.
4. Start your blower allow time for it to warm up and advance choke as far open as you can without stalling motor (mine just suddenly wouldn't run in anything other than full choke).
5. With motor running, adjust the screw to improve operation. Depending on your initial choke setting you may have to adjust, open choke to next position and fine tune.
6. Note- clockwise reduces fuel to carb, while counter clockwise increases it (if it's stalling when you attempt to throttle up it's starved for fuel) I'm sure there's a tool designed so that some tech can charge you 100.00 to turn the adjustment screw 1/4 turn but I found that a pair of fine needle nose pliers did just fine. Pay attention to original position of the V notch and what adjustments you make ( I tend to make 1/4 turns and fine tune from there) so you can always go back to your starting point. Note I'm not a technician so I can't say this the fix for your machine but it worked on mine.
