No fire on echo pb200 leaf blower

I would check to see if the spark plug is firing first off and if it is ok check the plug wire and make sure there is no damage to it. If that is ok then you probably have a bad coil. You can use a spark plug tester and see if you are getting fire from the coil if not you will need to replace it. If you change the coil be sure to note the air gap between the coil and the flywheel then set the new one to approx. the same distance. Hope this helps.

Getting spark and gas but won't start,it will fire once and a while and pop but that it,help

Check compression, vacuum and pressure check, ring seized to the piston. Also if you haven't replaced the spark plug, do it. Sometimes it's the most simple things that stump us. Sometimes a spark plug won't fire under load.

Not geting fire to the plug

Hi Dennis
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and cranking the engine or by pulling the crank rope...watching the plug for spark.
If you are getting a nice blue spark then skip A below and go to B.
A...If you do not get a nice blue spark then you may need to replace the electronic module.
Note: If you have to replace the module be sure to measure the position it is in, it is critical to starting.
Take a picture for later reassembly.
B...Also take some fine grit sandpaper (not emery) and lightly sand the flywheel where the magnet is located to clean any rust or corrosion from the magnet area.

How can I check to see if my fl1500 weed eater blower is getting fire

Pull the spark plug boot off, hold it near the block or another metallic surface and pull the starter (all of this needs to happen in a darkened room). If you see a spark, you know that it's getting spark.

Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

Unable to start my 155BT blower. Have changed

Is the new spark plug wet? If not, the machine is not getting fuel (fuel filter, carb, etc.) If the plug is wet, you may not be getting spark (bad ignition module, short in switch/harness, bad plug (yes it does happen with even new plugs)), or flooding due to incorrect starting procedure or clogged airfilter. Stale fuel can also cause an engine not to start as it lacks volatility. If in doubt, take it to your local dealer.

It will not start. new spark plug. gas mixture is

If the leaf blower has been setting up for a while there is a possibility that the jets in the carb are clogged up,and it's not getting gas into the engine. Or the spark plug may not be getting any fire, you can check this by removing the plug and and grounding the end where the gap is against a metal part of the engine and letting someone pull the starter cord while you watch closely to see if a spark jumps across the gap, but be very careful you don't want to cause an explosion from gas fumes. If you don't feel comfortable doing this you may need to take the leaf blower to a repair shop and have it serviced.

Homelite ut08107 will not fire. no spark at plug.

It may be the coil if there is not any spark. Or a wire could off at the coil. One more thing it could be is the spark plug wire may have came loose from the coil. These a few thing to check.
