Somewhere in the tube or impellor area, it is plugged with a piece of debris that is clogging the flow of air to the bag or outlet.

Engine will not go to high speed fuel oil mist blows out .checked spark arrestor ,muffler,exaust ports.

If the mix is blowing out the muffler than it is flooded either due to improperly adjusted carb, stiff diaghrams in the carb or weak spark. Weak spark could be a bad plug, failing ignition module, or spark ouit of time ( sheared flywheel key).
Bad fuel will also cause this symptom.

Clean your dryer at least once a year

doesn't matter what kind of dryer you have,you should clean it out or have someone clean it out at least once a year more so if it's gas so you don't have a fire on your hands,unplug dryer, go outside and make sure nothing is blocking the air flow and outside flapper is blowing fully open and clean out the vent line, disconnect vent line from the back of dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower if it's a long run just stick the leaf blower right in the vent line that you disconnected from the back of dryer and blow out to the outside vent hood,vac out the inside of dryer and clean out the duct where the lint filter slides into,a shop vac works great because the other end of it has a blower on it,blow the lint off the motor and blow the lint that's in the back of dryer so the lint comes to the front so you don't have to remove the drum and don't run the dryer or any other appliance if you are leaving the house

remove the blower tube by turning anticlockwise. remove cover from air inlet same way. attach large diameter suction tube to air inlet (has to fit correctly as this is where the safety switch is) attach collection bag to air exhaust opening (where you removed the blower tube from)

My troy-bilt blower/vac is blowing oil out of the carb. what are some things that may cause this? Oil level? How do I know I have proper amount of oil? If I leave the foam filter and the carb cover on, the...

Your oil breather (on the side of the engine opposite the carb) may be malfunctioning/defective allowing the carb to **** oil from it. There is a breather tube that crosses over the top of the cylinder connecting the crankcase( oil) breather to the air filter housing. Check the oil level and the condition of the air filter and esp. the oil breather. It serves the same function as a PCV on a car engine.

Troy-bilt gas blower/vac stopped and pull cord won't come out

NOPE You can buy new cheaper than have this one repaired, Also I don't recommend using these for a vac on leaves. Leaves are very very dirty and these blower vacs usually dont last long when used as a vac. The seize problem was from an improper fuel mix. THE next one you getone use a little more oil, than says in the owners manual. Like if it says 50/1<<>> mix 40/1 more oil will just foul the plug and oil the muffler,but you will not have a seizure problem. I have never had a problem with a 40/1 mix .

Vacuum or Blower?

* Blowers perform the single, simple function of blowing material. * Blower/vacuum combinations combine the blower function with a vacuum feature. Leaves or debris can be directed into an attached bag, which makes this type of unit great for vacuuming leaves from shrubs. An additional mulching feature is available on some leaf blower/vacuums. Mulched lawn debris can be used in compost piles or bagged for disposal. Most convert easily from blowing to vacuuming mode.
