Back the carb screw out 1/4 of a turn at a time until you get it to start.

SOURCE: Homelite leaf blower bogs down.

I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas blowers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with gas blowers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time. Also make sure your spark plug is clean. If you are not sure, a new plug couldn't hurt.
Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: gas blower craftsman leaf older modle

check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

SOURCE: 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.

HUSQVARNA 130BT GAS BLOWER STARTS FINE, BUT LOSES POWER WHEN I TRY TO USE????


Sounds like a fuel starvation problem, Strip and clean carb. Avoid using airlines to clean carbs. remove low and high adjustment screws, reset to factory settings. Walbro carbs are generally scew both of them back in all the way and then turn out 2 full turns each anticlockwise.

Carb. problems sounds mostly like the carb needs to be thoroughly cleaned out, drop fuel bowl and hit openings with a tiny steel wire and carb cleaner also check the diaphram, sounds like its cracked/dried up.

I have a Homelit leaf blower. Vintage 2003. It has run great up until today. I was running it and all of sudden it stopped. I checked gas and it had not run out. I noticed the carb was loose so I tightened...


Probably the wrong kind of popcorn....

Try putting a few drops of gas/oil mix right in the carb throat and see if it will start and get you back in business. Another thing that happens upon occasion is that the cylinder, which is held on by 2 or 4 allen headed bolts to the crankcase will come loose, thus losing your vacuum/compression. Be careful not to strip out the holes if you find this is the case. I speak from experience....

Homelite yard blower won't start


1st how old is the gas and 2nd how long did it sit for since you last used it? If there was any old fuel left in before now (more than 14 days) than it is possible your carb needs cleaning. If it's less than 14 days then you might want to check the compression. IF you have good compression, then you might want to take it to a service center to have it diagnosed.

Leaf blower will not achieve full RPM's


try removing the muffler and scraping out any carbon build up in the exhaust mouth of the block. if that doesnt help you will probably need to replace the carb.
