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: 2-cycle blower starts up but wont run full power rpm

Have you tried choking it about half way and see if that helps? Does it do the same after it is warmed up?

SOURCE: yard broom leaf blower will not stay running I

It seems that the carb is not getting fuel. It could be a cracked fuel line. The fuel priming bulb could also be cracked/dry rotted. Possibly the fuel pump in the carb is bad. The carb is rather intricate and not something anyone without training should try to repair. The overhaul kit will cost $15 to $20. I suggest you take the blower to a repair shop.

The bowl on the bottom does it have a step in it. If it does make sure the bowl is positioned so that the float can drop down all the way.

How do i adjust the carb on an echo blower


Not sure what carb you have..You should be able to see a spring loaded air/gas adjustment screw on the carb..once running turn clockwise until motor starts bogging down then the other way until it does the same..keep adjusting back and forth unti it runs smooth..
you may have another on the bottom of the carb bowel..do the same with it...if this doesn't work needs a rebuild kit..good luck..

Won stay running


Needs a carb adjustment, cleaning, or possible rebuilt. Try adding a little seafoam and running at half choke for about 5 mins or longer this may clean it up nicely. also check the spark plug.

My styhl 550 4-mix back pack leaf blower will not rev up,even after installing a new carb


Go to the exhaust muffler and use a socket to remove the muffler screen. If it is clogged, use a small propane tourch to burn the carbon inbedded in the screen. Once it turns to a greyish ash color. Lightly tap it to remove the ash. Reinstall it and then try again.

I have a CCR 3650 Snow Blower ,The engine is racing at idle. How do I adjust?


Try the spring on the governor. sounds like it's not hooked up, or extremely week. I rebuild and sell these all winter. I've had it happen a few times. Runs really good! but, will ruin the motor running over speed like that. There are adjustments- some have the spring on a long flange of metal so it can be bent backwards to add tension- it doesn't take much! If the motor starts to rev up and down and up and down, add a hair more tension. It there is too much tension it will stall out when you hit heavy snow.
