Most common causes are:
1. plugged gas filter
2. gas tank vent/breather plugged
3. dirty carburator.
4. this also cold be casued over time by worn out piston rings not creating enough suction for proper flow of gas.

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

Start snow blower runs for 3 min. and starts to over heat checked oil its ok then stats to shut down like its not geting oil


Why do you say its over heating .Runs for 3 minutes the oil is OK .
Do you understand how the choke works .
bacsicly you prime the mechine in cold condutions 3-4 pumps choke to max throttle at 3 /1/4 .
Start backing off the choke after 3-to4 mins .
The choke shuts the fresh flow down to the engine in cold condutions ware it needs more fuel then air to run.
When the engine starts to get hot it can't run with out fresh air to mix with the gas it won't run anymore because there is to much gas and not enough air
Its simple fool prof will work everytime if you adjust it right

BLOWER WILL START WITH FULL CHOKE, BUT SHUTS OFF WHEN TRYING TO REDUCE CHOKE.


I'm having the same problem. My suspicion is the carborator requires gas/air mixture adustments. This requires a special carb adjustment tool - called a Long Single D Tool. I will try to have my fixed very soon - 1 week...I'll try to keep you posted.

Husband put unleaded gas with the oil added due to a 2 cycle engine, now it won't run


not clear on the problem?
I think you mean he has to add 2 stroke oil to the gas then fill up the blower then start it but it won't start? If the mixture is wrong it wont run well if at all.
Check the spark plug has a spark (unscrew it rest it against metal body with HT lead attached and try to start it, keep clear of the lead tho don't hold it in place!! it can be shocking. Check the unit isn't flooded (very wet spark plug).
try starting it with no choke, try several times then gradually increase choke, is it try to run yet?

Mb 3200 gas leaf blower will start when choke


The carburetor could need rebuilding or you have some bad gas. I would mix up some 2 cycle oil and fresh gas from the station. I would try the new fuel mixture first.
Good Day.

Blower does not stay running


Make sure you have the propper mix of gasoline and oil. If the fuel is old mix new fuel to proper ratio. Find your manual and find the low speed fuel adjustment and the high speed fuel adjustment on the engine. First, turn the screws in and count the turns so you know where you started. Return the screws to the origional position. Usually 2 to 2-1/2 turns are a good starting point if you get them messed up. If the engine runs with the choke on you have to open the high speed jet a bit, 1/4 turn CCW. Keep trying this and get the feel of the change in the engine performance. If you have too much fuel the engine will not get to peak RPM. The low speed jet works similar but you have to adjust it so the engine idles at a decent RPM. This should get you on the path.
