It sounds like the engine is worn out. Have you done a compression test on the engine? If it is not at least 100 psi, the engine will not try to run.
I would get a compression test done on the engine, then take out a loan and go get you a commercial grade blower.
Good day.

THE ENGINE WILL NOT RUN WITHOUT GOOD COMPRESSION. IF SOMEONE PUT JUST GAS IN THE ENGINE IT HAS TOOK OUT THE RINGS AND THEY WILL BEST STUCK .

Just wont start got getting fire and gas still wont crank even if i put a little gas on sparkplug


Pull cap check to make sure you are firing in seaquance you may need to put the number 1 up and check to see if the number 1 is is firing number 1. It's due to someone not setting the timing properly

I've put a new sparkplug and new filter -but the blower won't start . Doesn't even feel like it wants to start


Put a spoon full of gasoline straight down the plug hole. Reinstall the plug, if it starts then you obviously have a fuel problem. You may need a new kit installed in the carburetor. Easy fix.

Leaf blower will not start i have spark


try putting a little gas in the plug hole, like a spoon full only, if it fires on that , then you obviously have a gas problem. You may need a little carb work, such as a new kit installed.

I have a craftman leaf blower model#368794963 hand held 25cc it was running fine but now it wont start


hello

if you have spark remove the sparkplug and priming the engine(put some gas in sparkplug hole into the cilinder).Pull the rope for starting engine as many times as you need until the engine starts but without any choke and the switch on the on position.Please let me know what is going on.

Won't start


May have moisture in the fuel. Try draining the old fuel out, put in new, add Stabil, or some other fuel stabilizer, clean & gap plug. Should start.

I have a 25cc Craftsman Blower/Vac model 358.794941 which will not start. I have replaced the spark plug and carburetor. This is 2 years old and not even 10 hours on it.


hi

if you have compression and spark(a blue one) try priming the engine,put some gas in the sparkplug hole and start the engine.if it fires only the gas you putted inside there is a delivery problem to find and fix(carburator and hoses.

bye

Does it have spark ??? I would check that first, and IF it does maybe add a tablespoon of gas down the sparkplug hole then try it..

Crafsman gas blower: fuel lines to primer bulb had to be reconnected; now blower won't fire at all. Replaced plug and made sure it sparked; still nothing when I try to start.


Hi

Priming the engine(put some gas in the sparkplug hole ,after you have checked the sparkplug,the colour of the spark has to be violet).Start the engine.If it starts there is a carburation problem,change the fuel lines to primer bulb.

wish you good luck savumihai71
