Don't do anything with the fuel line or carb. Your model is electric and has neither.

Hello,

Most Probably the problem lies in the adjustment of the carburettor. There are two needles in the carb one for lowend adjustment and one for high end adjustment. Your lowend adjustment seems fine. The highend needle needs to be adjusted. Following are some very detailed procedures for adjusting these types of carbs

If your machine has a carb other than a "Walbro" dont worry the procedures are same. I am sure if your engine has not completed its life span this will solve your problem.

SOURCE: craftsman leaf blower wont start

The air gap for the ignition coil core to flywheel is adjustable on some engines and the gap does vary.
On a Stihl, I used a matchbook cover first, then doubled it and got the engine to start. That amounts to 8-10/1000ths (0.008-0.010") as measured with a digital caliper after-the-fact.
I'm troubleshooting another engine currently from a McCulloch Airstream IV that only has ~12 hours and no spark but the coil measures roughly as it should; around 1K Ohms. Was surprised to find the company went bankrupt in '99. Another one killed by Asians and fairly poor design.

You need to check if the piston was fired, or if the piston rings was stick.

Most of the parts that use to be available for that model are no longer available, it is cheaper to buy new one.

Will start and run at half choke. stalls as soon as choke is moved to run.


Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old. Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage. May need to clean or replace carburetor.

WONT START REPLACE ENGINE CARBRATOR ADPT DO TO BOLT BROKEN OFF STILL WONT START


Check spark plug. remove the spark plug, clean it and test it. If it still doesn't start, take the spark plug out, and connect it to spark plug wire and try to crank the blower, and see if it makes a spark, if not you may need to replace the spark plug.
