Question about Ryobi 2 Cycle Blower/Vac 51984-R
ITS BRAND NEW EQUIPMENT. I FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS TO PROPERLY STARTING IT, BUT ITS SO HARD TO START. IT FUSTRATES ME SO I JUST GIVE UP.
If the equipment has gas in it and has been sitting for more than 3 months, the gas is probably "bad". Gas breaks down after a few months and turns thick and then leaves a varnish type film on parts.
Empty the gas
Take it apart and loosen the carburetor bowl (single nut on the bottom)
clean the bowl with brake cleaner (leaves little to no residue)
Spray the other carb parts, do not try to disassemble carb
Put about 1 pint of new gas in tank
Let gas flow through lines and carb (put a container under the carb to catch gas as it comes through "open" carb
Put bowl back on carb
Take the air filter off
Fill tank with new gas (add gas preservative to he unused gas can)
Try to start it, you can use starter fluid if needed
put air filter back
If your blower has issues you may have to go to a repair shop.
i had the same issue and finally resolved it by buying an electric blower...works every time.
Hope this helps

Without seeing in my shop it will hard to tell exactly what is going on. I have ran into a couple starting problems with Ryobi blowers. They carburetor were either being over choked or not enough choke. Both were Ruixing carburetors. Something you can try to find out if it is the carburetor into add a little fuel mix directly into cylinder through the spark plug hole.
Depending on how long you have had it, it may still be covered by the warranty and I would check into that if I was you.
