My blower will not start

Almost positive the fuel lines are clogged if the gas has ethanol in it. Happened to my Ryobi string trimmer 2 years ago. Replaced the fuel lines from the tank to the carb.

Try removing the fuel, remove the spark plug and give a few pulls to remove starter fluid from the cylinder, once completed attach your spark plug and check spark, reinstall plug, add fresf fuel to the tank and try staring with normal cold start procedure. Does it have good compression?

My ryobi cs30 gas trimmer (3 years old) has been difficult to start this year, has been getting worse all year and now wont start. What's up?

Most likely it is the spark plug, but could be a dirty fuel system. I'd start with the spark plug then go from there. you can also use a good quality fuel injector cleaner in your gas to help keep all your small engine carbs clean. If the problem persists there is a fuel filter inside the gas tank that plugs onto the end of the fuel pick up line that could be clogged. Worst case a carb kit can be gotten for them for about $20 bucks. Hope this helps. Please vote yes, thank you.

2 Cycle Gas Trimmer will not start

it is normal to see air bubbles in line when pumping the bulb. to make sure what the problem is, try starting several times, remove spark plug. if dry, yes no fuel, remove the carb. if wet, place plug on engine block and look for blue spark. no spark means you need new plug, plug cord or ignition module
