Primer bulb has hole in it or fuel line cracked.First use needle nose pliers to crimp fuel line just before primer ,dont use to much pressure and see if bulb will hold vacuum when you press it.If it wont hold vac either buld has hole or valve in primer is defective.If it does then you need to crimp off fuel line feeding carb and see if primer holds vac.If it does not then you need to replace powervalve inside carb.

Blower does not get any fuel. Installed new carb checked and removed fuel filter and air vent and still wont start. why is it not getting any fuel? what have I missed?


One question: Is the unit equipped with a primer? If so what does priming do? If it wont prime do the following:
Check your fuel lines to verify they arent collapsed or blocked. Also replace the fuel clunk in the gas tank. Check fuel cap vent for blockage too. Finally, make sure the fuel lines havent been crossed. Good luck and be careful!

Toro Power Clear 418 ZE Snow Blower won't stay started


The main jet of your carb is clogged and you need to open carb and clear the obstruction - spray carb cleaner on the bolt that holds the gas container to bottom of carb - also spray all the innards along with any tube that protrudes into the gas can.

Then using air compressor blow the sucker out and reassemble. That should do it.

My prime bubble sticks in when I try to prime my leaf blower.Blower will not run.


There must be a blockage in the fuel system, start by replacing the fuel filter in the fuel tank, if this does not work remoce the carb and clean the internal filter under the pump cover.

PRIMER BULB WONT PRIME


I would recheck the carburetor to make sure you put the diaphragms next to the carburetor and not the gaskets.
Please if it is not priming you may have the fuel lines hooked up wrong. Also check the fuel cap to make sure the vent assembly is there. If the tank is not venting, the tank will get a vacuum in it not allowing fuel to flow.

Good Day.

I have a huskavarna leaf blower 140 back pac i run it for 5 min then it srarves for gas let off on the throtle for 10 seconds put on full it gos to full rpms the starves agian


Carburetor may need adjusting or rebuilding. I would try mixing up some fresh fuel mixture and try that first. Use gas from the station not from the can sitting in the garage.
Good Day.

Ryobi blower will not start unless primed by


If it is under 2 years old, I would take it to a warranty repair center. The carburetor have been giving some problems so they have needed to be replaced because they are sub standard quality.

Homelite vacuum blower doesn't run at full speed.


Sounds like you need to adjust the Carb. Take the two plastic caps off and turn each screw 1/2 turn. and then try to start. If it works then out the caps back on (or you can leave them off, they are not needed).
Good luck!
