Sounds like the primer purge valve is faulty
but check the fuel filter and lines anyway for holes / perishing

could also be needing a carb kit installed particularly if been sitting around

might pay to fit carb rebuild kit for this machine

carb id # is stamped on the carb ie c1q or c1u ####
parts needed should be in the kit

your local outdoor power shop should be able to organise this

cheers

Echo pb 251 leaf blower leaks oil


You need to check your gas line and the primer ball itself and make sure you don't have a split in the lines or in the ball, also check the fuel filter in the gas line to ensure it is not plugged up.

While using Craftsman blower it was running low on gas. I turned it off and when i opened the gas cap, it appeared to be highly pressurized. I filled the tank and when I pushed the primer bulb to restart...


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, fuel lines, and fuel filter.

Primer bulb not filling


Yes, I think the gas cap may be clogged. The gas cap must be able to breath, otherwise this vacuum will occur. Try starting your trimmer and when it starts to choke out, loosen the gas cap. It should get air back in the tank, then and keep running. If this works, clear the hole in the gas cap, or purchase a new one.

Both gas lines are dry rotted off...


Sorry about the delay.
Problem solved, I hooked up the lines (very important to get a drill the size of your new gas line, it aids in sealing the tank, thus providing a good seal for the prime).
The thing in the bottom of the tank, attached to the line is a filter. It is available at any small engine shop).
Once I hooked up the lines and hit the primer ball a few times you can see the fuel moving, you will know, because you will see which way it flows through the lines. The other line is just a return line into the tank.
It is the same on generally any 2 cycle blower or weedwacker motor.
