Sounds like you have a clog in one of your carburator circuits.I recommend cleaning and or rebuilding your carb.

Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check cylinder compression


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

SOURCE: replaced all lines (2) plus

I am under the assumption the primer bulb is atop the carburetor. There are check valves under the bulb in the primer base assembly of these carbs. Sometimes, the valves stick and sometimes they go bad completely. There are very small and for all practical purposes unserviceable, however...you can try this...pull the fuel lines off of the carb and spray WD-40 into the brass inlet and outlet. Remove the primer bulb again and liberally spray some WD onto the top of the primer base assembly...this being done in hopes of freeing up a sticky check valve. If you have extra or old fuel lines, hook them to the carb...inject WD-40 and work the bulb to attempt to move the lubricant back and forth out of the carb. Sometimes this works, sometimes not..if valves are bad. There are replaceable parts and kits for the primer base available on the manufacturers websites. The primer bulb does not have to be completely full of fuel to allow the engine to run, but the base assembly can cause problems in fuel flow to and from the carb and even mimic a flooding condition. Don't use carb cleaner and dont soak the carb in any,. Try this and post back if needed.
Please vote on this solution.

spray carb clean in the carb, just a shot with throttle all the way open then try starting, If it fires then you have a fuel problem,like maybe the filter in tank dirty or dirt made it to carb or needle valve is stuck in carb.

SOURCE: wont start

Take out the spark plug,spray in some starter fluid for engines. Then refill your tank with premium gas because the low end gasoline has too much ethanol in it and it forms water in the gas very quickly.
Try to buy ethanol free gasoline if you can find it. Its better for small engines.

I have a 1996 Ariens ST-24 snowblower that is hard starting. When it does start it runs just fine. The Tecumseh engine has a primer and I run synthetic oil, 5W30 Mobil 1 and use non-oxy gas with Sea


You could have a hole you cant see in the primer or line to the carb. They vibrate and rub. Make sure you DONT use eco gas. This will turn your gaskets to trash in one summer of not using it. Lastly dump out the old gas and start with new. Snow blowers are famous for condensation building in the tank. Hope I helped

Ran well the 1st yr. Added Stabil - would not start this yr. Have put fresh gas in but will not start.


you added stabil but did you run the gas out of the carb? Take the carb apart and klean all with carb cleaner, spray in all holes. Check the plug gap of the new plug while your into the unit anyway the gap should only be 1mm.

I've put a new sparkplug and new filter -but the blower won't start . Doesn't even feel like it wants to start


Put a spoon full of gasoline straight down the plug hole. Reinstall the plug, if it starts then you obviously have a fuel problem. You may need a new kit installed in the carburetor. Easy fix.

Won't start


hi

check the compression,ignition and the carburetor.These are the three things an engine needs to run.If you have compression(put your thumb on the spark plug hole,spark plug removed,operate the starter.If the compression blows off the thumb of the spark plug hole,it is adequate for the engine to run).Try priming the engine(put small amount of gas in the cylinder)and start the engine .If the engine only runs the fuel you put inside you have a fuel delivery problem to find and fix.

Ran great sat. but would not start sun. same gas changed plug air filter gas soaked with it off still not running tried putting gas in spark plug hole still not running this is a craftmans 2 cycle leaf...


Were you running a fuel mixture of 40:1(3.2 oz of 2 cycle oil to 1 gal of gas), that you mixed up before you started using it again. The unit may have had to much use on Saturday and may be burned up. Try to have a compression test done on the engine, needs to be at least 100 psi to run. If that proves to be good then you can start looking at Fresh gas mixture, a new spark plug, Carburetor rebuild or an ignition module.

I just picked up a used ryobi rgbv3100 mulcher vacum blower ,it had no gas in it i put the oil gas mix in it ,followed the instructions on the blower ,but cant get it to start ,any ideas on what i can do?


test for spark.
while spark plug is out - put finger over hole see how much compression there is.

If good spark - look for holes in fuel line.

Wont start


Start with emptying the gas tank totally. Refill with fresh gas/oil mix. Todays gasoline ain't that great.
Also after putting in fresh gas and priming if it doesn't fire at all pull the spark plug and if it is dry, pour a about a tbsp. of mix gas in the plug hole. put the spark plug back in and see if it will fire.

Hi gr2954;

Lots of the starting problems with 2 cycle engines (weed eaters, blowers, chain saws, etc) are caused by leaving them stored for long periods of time with the oil/gas mixture left in them. what happens is that a residue forms on parts in the carb.

Try the following: empty the fresh gas out of the blower. add a gas stabilizer to the existing gas you plan to put in the blower. You can get this stabilizer at any auto parts store. While you are there get a can of spray start fluid. Put the fresh, modified gas in the blower. Take the spark out and spray some starter fluid in the plug hole.Replace the spark plug and try to start the engine.It will probably take a few cycles of doing this to get the blower to stay running.
when you put the blower up for a long period, empty the remaining gas out then start the engine and run it till it stops. this gets the remaining gas out of the carb.
