Remove the carburetor carefully noting which fuel line goes where. Remove the section of the carb that the fuel lines attach to. Examine the main carb housing that attached to the part that you removed and you should see a very small screen that is probably blocked from fuel additives that the government requires. Clean that screen and reassemble and reinstall the carb and use fresh fuel/oil mix and use a fuel stabilizer in your mixed fuel.

SOURCE: Poulan model: PPB430VS leaf blower. Won't start.

I think that those are suppose to be caps over the screw to discourage inadvertant tinkering with it. That way it is a deliberate act to get to them, if it is what I think it is.

SOURCE: I can not get my craftsman leaf blower to start. I put a new spark plug and fresh gas. Won't start.

Not to sure without seeing or hearing it being pulled over. Compression? Very likely needs some carb work/kit.

I have a Craftsman 794774 leaf blower/vac w/25cc engine that won't start.


Many of these small blowers have an alloy key moulded into the flywheel, if this has sheared it will knock the ignition timing out, and will never run.

Got a craftsman leaf blower cranks up and runs fine for about 5 mins then starts losing rpms


ITs hard to diagnose these things over the internet, it could be so many things.
Is this a gradual loss of power? If so; Im sorry to say; that it sounds like its losing compression as it warms up. It is not cost effective to repair the unit.

If the loss of power is more sudden it could be a failing ignition module. Ive even seen spark plugs that quit working when they get hot.

To test this you will need a proper spark tester, laying the spark plug against the head will not provide an accurate assesment, and a can of carb cleaner. Run the unit with the air box cover and filter removed till it fails and immediately give a shot of carb cleaner in the carb and restart. If it starts right up it could be fuel related. IF it doesnt start right up then quickly test for spark. If no spark then its likely the ignition module. If it wont run on the extra fuel and it has spark then it has probably lost compression.

Husqvarna model 125b Hand held blower (Gas) No


If you have tried a new spark plug and you still have no spark, then your Ignition Coil, (Module) has gone bad. They aren't cheap if you buy it new. Try to find a used one if you can for around $10.

Good Luck!

Won't start --has gas--has spark craftsman leaf bower


most likely the air filter is clogged, take it out blow it out or spray water through it and allow it to dry completely.

alterinavely, just pouring a small amount of gas onto the filter should make it work, i would do that even if you do clean it properly.

this method works for cars too!
