130BT leaf blower will die when I pick it up or move it. I have no problems starting it. I let it run for 5-10 minutes on the ground, but when I pick it up (Straight up) or move it, then engine dies.

I have replaced the carburetor, fuel filter, spark plug, muffler, spark arrester, air filter.

SOURCE: Leaf blower will not run good. Only runs at full chike or half ch

If the trimmer is more than 3 to 4 years old, you may want to replace the carburetor parts, (new carb. kit). It also depend on the amount of use.
If it is newer than that, then you will need to disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. Make sure that the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den tek Brush,
(, to clean the small portals in carb. Reassemble and start.
If you need further assistance, just let me know.

SOURCE: Tecumseh LV195EA Starts then dies.

If the engine is running at all then your sensors should be ok. It sounds to me like its starving for fuel? Once the engine runs out of prime then it starves. Does the fuel system have a shut off valve? How about an inline fuel filter? Either could be plugged. I think what you will need to do is remove the carb from the engine and check to see if its clean and if fuel from the tank is flowing easily to it. Once you have the carb off the engine, remove the bowl from the carb by removing the bottom bowl nut. Use a small can or an ash tray to hold the small pieces. Shake the float back and forth to see if there is anything in it. Some floats are plastic and some are tin. If there is any liquid inside the float there is your problem. Otherwise continue on with your diagnosis by using a bread bag wire, minus the outer covering, and a little jet spray to probe and clean the internal jets. Pay particular attention to the center main jet which will have a small perpendicular air bleed hole near the bottom and to the air vent hole that is on the face of the carb where the air cleaner mounts. Any tiny piece of chaff will cause these to plug. For reassembly, the inlet needle slides into the float, and they are held to the casting by a pin. You can push the pin out with a small screwdriver and then grab it with a pair of needle nose pliers to get access to the float. Finally, check the O ring for cracks that goes between the bowl and the casting. This is an easy job, just take your time. Lawnboys are one of the better machines.

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

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.

Sounds like a fuel starvation problem, Strip and clean carb. Avoid using airlines to clean carbs. remove low and high adjustment screws, reset to factory settings. Walbro carbs are generally scew both of them back in all the way and then turn out 2 full turns each anticlockwise.

I've had my 130bt blower for about a year now and in the past week it hasn't been running good at all. Never had a problem until now. when i squeeze the throttle it seems to bog down and die, if i...

It's probably not the Coil; that's the good news. The bad news is it's probably the small screen in the carburetor. So you will need to take the carb. apart again. I'm sending you a Link to my Tip(s) on this problem. The first one is fuel line check, and then you can go to my carb. clean Tip from there.

Good Luck!

My 130bt blower stops reving after several minuets. Will start but not rev after running fine for 5-7 minuets?

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The next time it does this... loosen the gas cap a lot momentarily for about 10 seconds then tghten it and attempt a restart. If if starts right away again the gas cap is bad. It is supposed to breathe via a rubber seal in the cap. There are 5 parts in the cap. If it can not breathe the gas tank goes into a vacuum as fuel drains and you will experience fuel starvation.

Also check inside the fuel tank for debris.

Husqvarna Power Equipment
130BT (I used the 2001 - 2007) There is also a 2008-2010 choice
and then click on Fuel tank a.s.s.y

I suspect the problem is either going to the the fuel cap or the fuel filter.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Hi. My craftsmal leaf blower runs OK for 3-5 then dies????

Could be a blocked vent on your fuel tank - is there a vacuum in the fuel tank immediately after it stalls?

My weed eater will start but when I push on throttle it dies

well take the spark plug out take some WD40 and give it a shot inside the unit, remember to keep the unit level when hitting the throttle and allowing it to warm up for a few minutes before use also make sure where your choke lever is. also when starting I start it on the ground like most manuals state and leave it idle on the ground for a minute before picking it up and then when I pick it up I make sure that the gas tank is tilted towards the ground so there is no room for air to get into the filter causing and disturbance while the unit is warming up.
