Question about Electrolux Featherlight Gas Blower, 150 Mph, 300 Cfm, Weighs Only

Open Question

Model # WT 200 LE won't start and run properly

I used the leaf blower quite normally one morning, then stopped for lunch. Afterwards, it would not start and run properly. With the choke closed (full choke) and throttle wide open, it will occasionally start and run for a few seconds before stopping. If any other settings are tried, there is no response at all from the engine. I have checked the gas, gas filter, and spark plug action, and all appears to be okay.
It would seem that fuel starvation is the problem, but not sure how to check this. could you let me know what you think please, and I can try to repair the problem. I'm fairly mechanically minded, and am able to take the unit apart if necessary.
Thanks, I look forward to a reply.
Peter Westwood.

Whats the proper compression on a craftsman 200mph leaf blower?

Most 2 cycle engines need at least 90(ish) psi to at least run. Most need more to run correctly.

Won't start

This engine may well have seized, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston skirt through the open exhaust port, any signs of scuffing and the machine will have to come apart to assess the damage.

Won,t start When I used it last it lost power and i had to run with the chock out.Than it quit,and would not start again

The carburetor sounds like it needs a rebuild kit. I would have a technician do a compression test on the engine. It needs to be at least 100 psi to run. Anything lower than that you are looking at an engine rebuild.
Good Day.

My toro blower stopped working after only 10 minutes

Hi, normally when an electric motor smells of burning the damage is done, if it's new you need to get it fixed under warranty, trying to repair it yourself will void warranty
