I have a handheld hitachi leaf blower, bought it recently. It will not start. It worked before, but when I pull the power cord now, it won't pull back, it gets stuck. I disassembled it and everything looks fine. What do I do?

When you say power cord is the unit electrical? Or do you mean the unit is gas powered and the recoil starter cord gets stuck?

SOURCE: My leaf blower will not start, It keeps flooding

To start: turn the choke off, hold the throttle wide open and crank. You have a carb problem but this should get you going. John

SOURCE: Husqvarna 130BT leaf blower - locked-up

If you stored it with fuel in it, the piston and cylinder may be stuck together. The old fuel turns to a gummy varnish. spray some WD-40 in to the cylinder through the spark plug hole and rock the flywheel back and forth to break it loose. Then flush the fuel system and carburetor. If that isn't the problem, remove the muffler and inspect the piston, rings, and cylinder for vertical scoring, if scoring is present a top end rebuild may be necessary.

SOURCE: I have a Echo PB 2601 made a loud bang then stoped working.

Sounds like it has seized up. If the pull cord won't pull then the motor is locked up. Did you run gas/oil mix for the fuel its a 2 cycle motor...

SOURCE: when we started using toro

You must use at least a 12 guage extention cord . Your current cord mostlikely can not handle those amount of amps for long duration of time.

Low octane - whatever it is in your area, but must include 2-cycle oil in the mixture.

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.

As you pull the cord do you feel a thud thud? if not you don't have compresion. However take the carb apart and clean it with carb cleaner it only takes one small peice of **** to cause trouble.Dennis

The start cord on the leaf blower won't pull out more than a few inches. Why is this?


pull your spasrk plug out and see if it pulls over then, cylinder might be fullof gas causing hydro lock condition,if so pullit till cylinder dries out then re-install plug and try starting. if all is good check your fuel cap to make sure the vent is working! If it's not venting this causes vacumn that pull fuel out of tank to cylinder after it is shut off...........Good Luck 2StrokeJim

Need to replace pull cord on homelite z830sb


Start from the bottom and work your way up. This is not an easy repair. You have to almost completely dissassemble the entire blower to replace the cord. You will need a T20 and T25 torx tool, a 9/16' wrench or socket, 40" of #3.5 rope and about an hour. A repair shop will typically charge $20 to $40 in labor for this repair.
