SOURCE: Homelite 2 cycle backpack leafblower won't run.

Sounds like the exhaust port is clogged with carbon/oil buildup. My three yr old Craftsman Blower/Vac did the same thing and all I could think of was the carburetor or fuel lines were clogged. But after replacing the fuel lines and air blowing out the carburetor it wouldn't start and then when it did start it only idled. A friend suggested I take off the muffler and cylinder head. Clean out all the old carbon and oil buildup from the exhaust port. It was so clogged up that maybe a bb could have only passed thru. Once I removed all the carbon, put it back together, it fired right up, idled like it was brand new and went to full speed with no problems

I have this exact blower and it doesn't seem to work anymore. It worked last week and when I try to start it up using the start up procedure it doesn't start. It has enough gas/mixture and is primed. I can...

Hi, this sounds like a wiring issue. If there is fuel supplied to the engine and the spark plug is good, you should be able to get it to fire. However if there is no spark due to a broken wire or faulty kill switch you will not receive a spark. Also, if you are certain that all systems are in order, you may have simply flooded the engine and the gas needs to evaporate from the various chambers. If it is flooded, you may also try starting in full throttle to compensate for the extra gas. This sometimes works. Good luck.

Blower will run on choke but not in the run postion

If you haven't tampered with any adjustments (Set screw, Idle, Hi or Lo jets etc...) then most likely your carb is flooding. You either have something stuck in the needle valve passage keeping it open. (And it can be Tiny! and I mean a speck.) You can try shooting some good old "Gumout" or any other carb cleaner/ degreaser made for carbs. Try removing the gas line off the carb "Inlet" and with that hose off spray the carb cleaner into that hole liberally. Pull the throttle open and close fast as you do the "spray in".If you have compressed air? Send a little of that in there after the spray, then spray a bit more cleaner in. Let it then sit for 10 15 min loaded with cleaner. Then reconnect the gas hose, prime it up with the primer bulb, restart it, let it warm up a bit. see what happens. Oh FYI to much oil (or the wrong type)in the gas mix can sometimes cause something very similar to flooding. So make sure all is correct!

Hi guy's by blower won't start or fire i think jet settings are wrong could this be

Unless you have fiddled with the carb, it's not the carb. Check spark with an in-line spark checker then check compression with a compression tester...if these two test good THEN it may be the carb. If you need to know how to use those tools or where to get those tools, let me know here.

I have a homelite model uto8550 26cc mighty blower/vac. On initial startup it runs at half choke then stalls when i turn it to run. Any suggestions?

1. check fuel filter in gas tank (for clogged condition).
2. Check carb jet for dirt (squirt carb cleaner in jet and fuel inlet

Summary: your carb is not getting enough fuel to mix properly with constant air flow. Therefore, fuel supply needs to be cleaned... then you will run happy!!

Gas is pooring out of the exhust

Needle valve in the carburetor is not stopping the flow of gas. It may need to be rebuilt. You also may have flooded the unit trying to start it.
I would have a shop do a compression test on the engine; it needs to be at least 100 psi to run.

HB-180 Leaf blower won't start

if its flooded then it surly wont fire,not a 2-stroke. are you over priming or is there a malfunction. remove plug,put plug not a tester in the end of lead,ground, and pull. spark should be purple and consistent. if red/yellow/intermitent. change he plug. if the engine is only flodding on its own then the needle and seat could be stuck open in the carb, gas tank vent in fuel cap plugged and building tank pressure, or fuel mixed too rich. let me know what you find
