Hi Mindy:
What happened before it died?
Is it possible that it is a 2 cycle motor and that straight gas got used?
I'd be concerned about scored cylinder. This can be checked but involves partially dismantling the motor so you can look through the exhaust port.

SOURCE: Husqvarna leaf blower, replace starter cord Model 132 HBV

remove the starter housing, usually only 3 or 4 bolts or screws. on the inside should be a large white or black wheel, hold the outer case with one hand and rotate the wheel counter-clockwise with the other as many times as can without force. on the inside of the wheel should be a small hole, rotate the wheel to line it up with rope guide hole on the outer case/housing. use a nail or small screwdriver to help hold in place. feed the start rope through the 2 holes and tie a knot at the end, single or double depending on the size of the hole. if the end of the rope is frayed, use lighter to melt and twist to a point to make it easier to handle. when reassembling you may need to jiggle the handle for realignment. it works on an inner spring coil tensioner system, so if the cable has no tension when rotated or doesn't recoil back, the starter assembly will need to be replaced.

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

Please rate if this helps-

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.

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.

130BT Blower can't pull start cord.


Can be a couple issues. The obvious is seized. The other is a broken jammed connecting rod. I would put some oil down the plug hole and let it sit overnight. Then after a day or so...try again with the wratchet. In both directions, forward then backward just to try and free it.

Pull cord binding when mounted on engine but not when removed from engine


When you assemble the Recoil Starter, push it down onto the blower easily and then pull the cord slowly. It should drop into position as you slowly pull the cord.

I just bought a Sears snow thrower, I put in oil and gas went to start it but the pull cord will not pull up. I then tried the electric starter but it just made a grinding sound. Why won t it start?


Check the crankcase and make sure it has oil. It sounds like the engine is frozen. If its brand new, take it back to Sears and have them start it for you.

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.
