Question about Homelite Consumer Products Backpack Blower/Vac, Carb
Once started , stalls @ idle
Your carbeurator is gummed up, a very common problem after a winter of sitting idle. Go to any auto parts store and buy a bottle of carbeurator cleaner which is added to your gasoline, usually one ounce per gallon. Also buy an aerosol can of carbeurator cleaner which you spray directly into the air intake by temporarily removing the air filter.
If you havn't replaced the spark plug and the air filter in a while do those things also, and use freshly purchased gas, not gas that has been sitting around for months.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
