Ryobi blower will not start unless primed by

Ryobi blower always been difficult to start. Now will not start unless primed by covering carb inlet and pulling starter a couple of times. Then runs fine for 10-15 seconds then stops. Looks like fuel starvation though primer works great, fresh fuel in the tank and a new plug. Are there issues with this type of carb?

If it is under 2 years old, I would take it to a warranty repair center. The carburetor have been giving some problems so they have needed to be replaced because they are sub standard quality.

I have a ryobi rpt 320e grass trimmer. my question is when pushing the prime bubble , should fuel come out of the small hole on the plate under the diaphram bowl.


the small hole should have a line attached to it so fuel goes to the carb --the bulb --has inlet from tank to bulb -outlet from bulb to carb

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

If you clean the dirt off the carb, the series no. and model no. will be etched into the body of the carb by the fuel inlet nozzel.

Ryobi backpack leaf blower about three years hard to start

b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection

b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check cylinder compression


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

Replaced primer bulb and gas lines will not prime or start


Sounds like you have the lines connected incorrectly. Make sure that the bottom of the carb is connected to the inlet side of the primer (take the lines off and with one of the ports covered with your finger push the bulb, if it collapses and doesn't return then that's the suction/inlet of the bulb). The other side of the bulb needs to be connected to the gas tank. The other side of the carb needs to go to the filter side of the gas tank.
Good luck!

Weedeater blower will not prime


The primer bulb sucks fuel from the tank to the carb. When the carb has enough fuel the remainder is sent back to the tank. When you replaced the fuel line did you use the exact length of line and did you re-install the filter. On some of the trimmers the filter is weighted and holds the line in the fuel. Good luck...Lee

Ryobi RY08576 25.4cc was started without mixed fuel


If the engine is sticky ie harder to pull it might have to be pulled apart new piston and honing of cylinder. not difficult just a pain. If it doesn't seem any harder to pull, Drain all of the unmixed fuel. Put a few drops of 2cylinder oil in the spark plug hole and pull the starter a few times with the plug out of it. Put a few more drops in repeat. Replace the plug (new plug) Put in mixed fuel prime the system cross your fingers and it should start up for you.
