There might be a safety switch on the hatch and due to a weak spring or corrosion the system is being shut down because it thinks there is a safety issue. See if you can find the switch and clen it and check the wire connections for a bad connection.

Leaf blower problems


Greetings & salutations Charles Klink,

You need to correct your 2 cycle oil to fuel ratio...

The engine needs the appropriate oil mix to keep the engine from seizing...

It is REALLY ******* the engine not to
be completely meticulous about your oil/fuel mix.

Hope this helps

Why is the dip stick blowing out


You must have blown a gasket. Most likely the head gasket. Won't take long till the motor stops complete.

Stopped abruptly won't restart


tThe flywheel is indexed to the crankshaft with a soft aluminum "shear" key, when the blade is stopped suddenly the key is broken instead of the crankshaft. The flywheel will need to be removed and a new key installed. Make sure to clean the shaft and flywheel mating surfaces so they fit tightly or the new key won't last too long.

Leaf blower starts and runns ok for few mins then


Target your inspection towards the 'spark arrestor screen' in the outlet of the muffler.

Overfuel or 'rich' condition
Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check Air filter for fuel saturation
4) Allow engine to run for 5 minutes to excess fuel from muffler
5) Fuel mixture ratio: Make sure the oil mix is per your manufactures recommendations
6) If after the above the engine is still smoking and blubbering:
Adjust carb mixture screws to a 'less rich' setting
*NOTE: only move mixture screws 1/8 of a turn at a time,
and try operation before any more adjustment

How do I adjust needle valves on a 25cc Homelite UT08111A Backpack leaf blower?


Set the lowend & highend needles to about 1 3/4 to 2 turns each. Choke the carb or prime it, until the carb is wet. Fire up the engine and let it warm up. Let's set the topend first since it's the easier of the two. Go to full throttle. Adjust the topend needle for peak RPM. Leave it wide open for about a minute to see if it changes any. Should the engine go lean, open the lowend needle slightly, if this dosen't work... you will have to adjust the needle valve inside the carb.( I will explain this later) If the topend runs OK, then slowly pull the throttle down until the engine begins to "four cycle" hold the throttle there. Adjust the lowend needle until the "four cycling" barely stops. Now lower the throttle more until it "four cycles" again, and adjust the lowend again. Keep doing this until you reach full idle. Now, from full idle begin to throttle up until the engine starts to bog or hesitate. Open up the lowend needle just enough to eliminate the bog or hesitation.
