Sounds to me like you need to disassemble the carburetor and clean it out. Probably a plugged passageway in there. Spray cleaner where the fuel line goes in and put the fuel line back on and try priming, see if that will get things flowing a bit better for youj.

I have two craftsman leaf blowers that will not start, have changed the plug, is there a coil I need to check?

With the plug removed but connected to the spark plug wire if you pull the cord do you get spark? If so try pouring a cap full of gas in the spark plug hole and reinstall the plug and wire and try to start it. If it starts and stalls then you are not getting gas thru the carburetor. Check the fuel filter in the tank. Also check all the fuel lines and the primer ball and see if they are cracked. Also check the carburetor to see if the choke is opening and closing.
Thanks for using FixYa

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.


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
