If the unit is still not siezed, it should be able to be repaired. Change the fuel and put in the mix, replace spark plug and check air filter. Good luck...Lee

Backpack gas blower


Monching, You will have to hope there is not too much damage done already from running straight Gas. Empty all straight gas from blowers tank and refill with proper minimum 50:1 gas oil mix. Start blower and run on 1/2 throttle for a few minutes to be sure its going to be OK. If seized, you will have to try and unseize and if lucky it may run if not too much damage internally. You should run a heavier oil to gas mix 32 or 40:1 in an engine that's been seized. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do you start it?


I means "ON" and o means "OFF"

choke should be closed to richen the fuel mix to start open it slowly after it starts and runs


also note most (2cycle) gas powered leaf blowers require a gas/oil mix to run properly , straight gas will destroy blower motor

Gas and oil mixed in 4 cycle backpack leaf blower


If it is a 4 cycle blower, you do not mix oil with the fuel....It takes straight Gas. there is an oil cap to put engine oil in crankcase, this only usually takes 2,3,4 oz. of oil. Sounds like your Spark Plug probably fouled out from having oil mixed in your gas. I would recomend changing your Spark Plug and put some Fresh GAS only in the blower, dump the old stuff out !!! You should be on your way Blowing in No Time !

Started with straight gas- can it be flushed and restarted with gas /oil mix?


Yes you can dump out the straight gas and mix some two cycle fuel mix I would mix it a little rich like 32 to 1 thats eight ounces to two gallons of gas but if you ran it with straight gas for a long time it wont help

Do you use mixed gas for a ryobi weed eater??


Unless it has a tag or decal on it saying it is a 4 cycle then it uses mixed gas/oil at about a 50:1 ratio. Straight gasoline will freeze the piston in the cylinder in mere minutes.

Homelite leaf blower bogs down.


I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas blowers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with gas blowers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time. Also make sure your spark plug is clean. If you are not sure, a new plug couldn't hurt.
Hope this helps!!
