I assume this is a Gas blower? So first off is the gas bad? Did this blower sit for a prolong time? These do require premix fuel and you must add 2 stroke oil to the gas ... if you don't you will ruin the motor. Check the spark plug for corrosion. Also it should have a gas bubble to prime the Carburetor with ... make sure gas is flowing through this bubble you can tell buy pressing the bubble you should feel and hear the gas squish thou it. Also check inside the gas tank look at the feed tubes make sure they are not deteriorated if they are you may just need to get a new one. Good Luck

My echho pb250 leafblower stopped running and now it wont start

There is a very small screen inside the carb that gets blocked up from the additives in gas. Clean it up and use a stabilizer in your gas/oil mix.

My poulan pro leafblower won't start, feels like there's no compression

Check that the spark plug is snug. If that is not it, then you should check the tightness of the head bolts. Sometimes they loosen. After that it could be a blown head gasket or a stuck valve.

Brand new leafblower first use and it stalled after 5 minutes. tried to re-start and the pull string will not move?

hopefully unless it is a 4 cycle? you mixed 2 cycle oil and fuel together as one and put it in the fuel tank? you can use a 40:1 mixture 3.2 oz of 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of fuel 87 octane will work or 89 octane is better.
if its a 4 cycle (10w-30 for oil) and fuel go in a seperate area?check your manual to verify what they would like you to use
