To start: turn the choke off, hold the throttle wide open and crank. You have a carb problem but this should get you going. John

Should be two fuel lines coming from fuel tank grommet. One feeds the carb's primer plate and the other returns from the same. Open the fuel tank and observe while pressing the primer. If you see fuel pumped INTO the tank while pushing the primer and pulled FROM the tank when the primer is released, you're OK. If not, the lines are backward. Filtered line is on SUCTION side of primer bulb. Unfiltered line is on PRESSURE side of primer and is simply a return to the tank.
Next, concerning the coil: Air gap should be .010 inch at the magnet. Echo ignition coils are warrantied for life to the original purchaser, so don't tamper too much with it. Check gap and check fire with a spark tester. If no spark with switch in on position, take it to an AUTHORIZED SERVICING dealer, found here.

Hope this helps,
Dolf-

The fact that your engine turns over easily with the spark plug removed simply means that, with the plug removed, there is no compression, so the piston goes up and down very easily.
If it has been a while since you ran the machine, and if you left gas in it, your carb may have gotten gummed up from the gas losing it viability and turning to something like varnish. You might try spraying carb cleaner into the carb (with the air filter removed), let it sit for a few minutes, then try starting. In the future, you probably should get some fuel stablizer (available at almost any hardware store) and add it to the fuel that you use for your small machines. It will keep the gas viable for a much longer period of time.
Hope that you are lucky enough that the carb cleaner, a good dose, will work. If not, you may have to disassemble and clean out your carb. (if you've never done that, a series of digital camera photos so you know where to put things back is a good idea).

I can not get my craftsman leaf blower to start. I put a new spark plug and fresh gas. Won't start.


Not to sure without seeing or hearing it being pulled over. Compression? Very likely needs some carb work/kit.

The last time we used the machine worked fine. Now when we try to use the machine, it won't start. It will turn over a little, but that's it. We have tried on several occasions to get it started...


Make sure the fuel is fresh (not older than 30 days). Never use old fuel unless it has an additive such as "Stabil" in it. Remove and clean or replace the spark plug. Make sure it is getting spark. With the plug out, shoot a couple good shots of carb/choke aerosol cleaner into the engine. Reinstall plug immediately. Choke it and try to start it. If you can get it running that way, the normal fuel flow through the carburetor may resume. Any other number of things could be wrong, but the machine has to have 1. Compression 2. Clean Fresh Fuel 3. Clean Air 4. Strong Spark (blue color). Mostly, the problem with these is a fuel supply problem, which consists of the fuel filter, fuel lines, internal parts of the carburetor and condition of ALL sealing gaskets on the engine. Any air leak will result in a no start condition. There is no majic fix. The ethanol in the gas now wrecks havoc on these little machines. Check all the above. Try the carb cleaner and post back with results.

Ran last year, won't start this year. Changed fuel and replaced spark plug. Checked spark and attempted to start with battery and tried with pull cord but no start. pulled plug and it had fuel on it so...


It might have tipped over on its side. Look at the air filter, if you see oil or gas on the filter then you might have to remove and clean the carburetor. I would start by cleaning/replacing the air filter and trying it again. If its getting fuel and the spark plug works then the only other side of the fire triangle is air.

Hello, I have a McCulloch BL150 blower and it doesn't start anymore. I can't find the manual for it so what can I do?


Basic stuff first, drain the fuel tank and re fill with fresh fuel, if it has a primer bulb fitted depress this ten or so times to pull fresh fuel through the carb, make sure the ignition switch is on, put the choke too full, crank the engine, if it fires move the choke to the the half position, crank again until it runs.
If still does not run, remove the spark plug and check for a spark, if not try a new plug and try again. If there is still no spark check the ignition unit wires for grounding, if they are ok replace the ignition unit.
If there is a spark but the plug is not getting wet, you will need to do a carb clean and service.
Good luck

Mcculloch MB3202 anti-vibration back pack leaf blower, runs better at the middle setting of the choke than it does if it's wide open the way it should be. Can't get it to blow leaves well. Owners manual lost. ANY ADVICE???????? New gas, spark plug starts on the first pull but just doesn't give out like it should.
