Sounds like a carb issue. Try spraying carb and choke cleaner while it is running. If that does not help may be remove carb and clean and rebuild it. My weed eater does same thing and I get it running and then spray it down. It takes a couple of sprayings but it helps.

Good luck

If its a two stroke motor first check your air clnr. If its ok then your carb probably needs adjusting. There is usually two scews.1 has a L " low" the other has a H "high" beside it. Get it running at an idle and turn the L slowly in or out which ever make it run better .slowly start moving the choke to the run position with every adjustment.do this until it runs with the choke fully off.

Ryobi 9600 backpack blower. Starts great. Set to run, continues running. Upon attempt to use throttle, engine dies. Acts like choking out but removed carb cover an choke is no closing.


this sounds strangely like the high speed jet/pathway in the carb is clogged up with something ,

the best way to fix it is dissasmbly and cleaning of carb in solvent , but ive also had some limited sucess in past of using car fuel cleaner (says on bottle "cleans as you drive") too

It sounds like a carb problem. You can buy a rebuild kit on line for cheap and rebuild it.Should run fine then.

There may be a plugged fuel filter in the fuel tank, or perhaps you have the oil mix to rich. other problems could be that it needs a new spark plug or carburetor adjusted.
Try spraying the carb out with carb cleaner, add a little seafoam in with the gas.

Weedeater 25 cc gas leaf blower-only run on full choke and raise back up and it ies.Any solutions??


The raising or reving back up before it dies is a sign of fuel starvation. Check the diaphram in the carburator.

The unit is lean. rebuild the carb with a carb kit and check your fuel lines. If they are brown or discolored or brittle they need to be replaced. carb kits run approx. 11 - 18 dollars from your local dealer.

THE ENGINE RUNS FINE FOR 10 SECONDS THEN KIND OF DIES OUT BUT WILL THEN RUN FINE FOR 10 SECONDS AND THEN DIE OUT


Try replacing the in-line fuel filter, the Air Filter and Spark Plugs. Also make sure that you are using the proper start up procedure. In many cases that means using the highest choke setting until the engine tries to start, then going to the next choke setting and so forth until you get to no choke. It is imperative that you let engine run for at least 5 minutes before use to warm up. This will ensure a longer life and consistent running.

Hello ben_brumett:

On My Homelite Blower I Simply Set the Throttle Lock. Pull Out the Choke (on the other I Move a Lever) and Turn on the Switch. Now Pull Until it Starts or Attempts to Start. Remove the Choke and Allow it to Warm Up for 2 or 3 Minutes.
