SOURCE: PRIMER BULB WONT PRIME

I would recheck the carburetor to make sure you put the diaphragms next to the carburetor and not the gaskets.
Please if it is not priming you may have the fuel lines hooked up wrong. Also check the fuel cap to make sure the vent assembly is there. If the tank is not venting, the tank will get a vacuum in it not allowing fuel to flow.

Good Day.

SOURCE: replace fuel lines WeedEater FL 1500 Blower

On the FL1500:

  • The Smaller line goes on the Lower inlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to the gas filter inside the gas tank.
  • The Larger line goes on the upper outlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to a fitting that holds this tube from coming out on the gas tank .This tube is only for Air, it helps fill the primer bulb when pushed.
I hope this helps.
Mechs correct me if I have made a mistake.

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.

SOURCE: I have a Homelite "Vac Attack" leaf blower model

The fuel line is replaceable by itself, you don't need a new tank. Just make sure you get the same size line or it will leak where it goes into the tank. Any local small engine repair shop should have the line. There are two lines that go into the tank, the pickup line has the filter on it. It not only filters the gas but keeps the end of the line down in the fuel.

It could be starving for gas at high rpm.
Check the plastic gas lines between the gas tank and the carburetor.
Replace if even the tiniest crack.

How to change fuel line on craftsman blower


Before you start take a picture of where the old lines are connected to the carb and the primer bulb for future reference.
To replace the line pull the spark plug wire from the plug. Remove the old line from the tank and remove the fuel filter from the line. Take new larger line and cut it on a 45 degree angle/or trim as necessary so you can grip it from inside the tank and pull it into the tank. Perform the same operation on the smaller line as well. Be sure to leave enough line for the fuel filter to reach the bottom of the tank. Install the fuel filter. The other small line is a vent line and only needs to come inside the tank not go to the bottom in the fuel.
Good luck.

Primer bulb won't pick up fuel, bulb, lines, filter seem ok. bulb creates pressure in the fuel tank when priming but no fuel will enter the bulb.


Hello Steve,
Your problem sounds like an internal problem inside the carburetor. I would first check fuel filter inside tank, but if that's ok, I would remove and clean carb. If you don't feel comfortable with this bring it in to a repair shop. Good luck. Hope this helped!

I have a handheld blower/vac: The primer bulb is new and will not pump fuel,not even fill the bulb. I checked the fuel lines to make sure they were correct.(homelite)


I was working on a neighbor's homelite chainsaw and I replaced the primer bulb, it was not intuitive, and I hooked up the lines backwards. Also if you are replacing the primer bulb, maybe you have old fuel lines that are deteriorating and need replaced. Did you check the in tank fuel filter? If it looks dark, it may be time to change it.

I hope this helps get you going again.

Blower will not prime and start


Primer bulb has hole in it or fuel line cracked.First use needle nose pliers to crimp fuel line just before primer ,dont use to much pressure and see if bulb will hold vacuum when you press it.If it wont hold vac either buld has hole or valve in primer is defective.If it does then you need to crimp off fuel line feeding carb and see if primer holds vac.If it does not then you need to replace powervalve inside carb.

No gas when you prime it


1) Check fuel lines from tank for cracks, fuel filter in tank, primer bulb for cracks

2)Remove Carburetor
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

Toro 521 snowblower..nn replace gas line to carb, it runs inside the engine cover..removed all bolts but the back cover doesnt seem williing to be removed


Or, you can try the easy approach. Take a 1/4" bolt about 2" long and cutoff the head. Force the bolt into the old fuel line on the fuel tank side (after removing fuel tank), push other end into new fuel line, tape the lines together well with electrical tape. Gently pull from one side and push from the other until new section of line comes through. Just did this and it too all of 5 minutes.
