My Craftsman leaf blower will not start. Why not?

My Craftsman leaf blower will not start.

It is gas powered with fresh gas and a new gas filter and spark plug. It was very difficult to start last year. When I could get it started, it would run okay until I shut it off to re-fuel. Then it would be very difficult again, until finally, it would not start.

This year, I could not get it started at all. It barely turns over when pulliong the pull start rope.

What could be the problem?

Thank you very much for any help you can give me.

Inside the carb is yet another fuel filter in the form of a screen. It is located just under the inlet needle and it would be included in a carb REBUILD KIT (not simply a diaphragm kit).
Replacing the screen and rebuilding the carb take nearly the same amount of labor so buy yourself a kit. Roughly $10.00 for most Hand-Held blowers.
Hope this helps.

Craftsman Leaf Blower will only rev up about 1/2 power at full throttle. Any suggestions?


If this is a two cycle engine there are adjustment screws that set the fuel mixture when the throttle is depressed.

This part fits your Leaf Blower. Husqvarna fuel filter. If the fuel filter is clogged, it willrestrict the flow of fuel to the carburetor. As a result, the engine may not start.

Not to sure without seeing or hearing it being pulled over. Compression? Very likely needs some carb work/kit.

Won't start --has gas--has spark craftsman leaf bower


most likely the air filter is clogged, take it out blow it out or spray water through it and allow it to dry completely.

alterinavely, just pouring a small amount of gas onto the filter should make it work, i would do that even if you do clean it properly.

this method works for cars too!
