Four possible issues. Start by checking fuses. If you are lucky, someone put the wrong amp fuse in and replacing it will fix things. Bad switch. More likely, bad fan motor or bad blower resistor. You can check the resistor by unplugging the wire connector and remove the part (two screws hold it into the plastic heater cover under the hood on passenger side of firewall) and inspect it for a broken wire. This will look like a small spring or two, and if one is broken, replace part. You can test the fan motor by unplugging the single wire going to the motor, use a jumper wire to BRIEFLY connect straight to the battery and see if it runs or just makes a big spark. Big spark = replace the motor.

How do I replace a fuel primer build on the Stihl BR600 blower/

Disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug and ensure it can't come in contact with the spark plug. Removal of the spark plug wire removes any possibility that power can be supplied to the engine of the blower during the repair.

Remove the screws that hold the air filter cover in place. Remove the air filter cover and air filter. Remove the air filter housing from the side of the machine. Removal of these components allows you access to the primer bulb, fuel line and carburetor.

Motor churns but won't start

That is not a lot of information to go on, so the problem may be one of several things. In my experience, most of the "no starts" are typically a fuel delivery problem, so with nothing else to go on that would be my guess. However, you should test to see if you have spark first. If you are not familiar with how to test for spark, see the video Don't forget to make sure the ignition is on when you do the spark test. If you don't have spark, then you have found your problem. Fixing this depends on how old the blower is. Most newer units have an ignition coil, but older ones have points. If you do have spark, then before you put the spark plug back, go ahead and take some starting fluid (carb cleaner will work too) and shoot a little bit in to the spark plug hole. Then put the spark plug back in making sure the plug wire is connected. Now try to start the blower the way you would normally start it. If it fires up for a second, then your problem is with fuel delivery, and you probably just need to clean out the carburetor. You can google for information on doing that as there are plenty of videos about that. Good luck!

150bt blower no spark

sounds like your kill/shut off switch is bad grounding it out. Unhook the small wire from the coil and see if you have spark then, if you do then the problem is the switch or safety switch and or possibly the wires that run to the switch .

Missfiring on one cylinder

Sounds like you have covered all the basics except the plug wire which might be bad.....the plug wire goes "deep" into the head & u cannot see the end of it r somewhere close 2 the end that the wire is shooting fire out of the side grounding itself to the head before the spark plug...look for a very small burn mark on the side of the wire after running the car or while running,lay the wire on the head lookfor a spark out the side of it.Good Luck!!!!!! P S BEEN THERE 7 DONE THAT!!!!!!

Homelite ut08107 will not fire. no spark at plug.

It may be the coil if there is not any spark. Or a wire could off at the coil. One more thing it could be is the spark plug wire may have came loose from the coil. These a few thing to check.

Poulan Pro 200 Leaf Blower won't start. I have installed a carb kit with no results. The spark plug was wet before the new kit---it continues to be wet. I have tried a replacement spark plug with no...

Alright, remember that 2-Stroke motors are meant to do 2 things:
Break down, then Frustrate you.

So, here we go: (Electrical)

Rotor Magnets, Magneto (ignition coil), Spark Plug Wire, Spark Plug, Spark Plug Ground (Cylinder Head).

In that order!

Check your "fire" from the Magneto:

1. Check your Kill Switch. In other words, leave everything normal, and unhook it. Did she start? Kill Switch it is! Kill Switch/Wire comes from the Magneto (single wire/ground) to the Switch itself. So check that wire AT the Magneto (Is it loose and grounding out? Is the Kill Switch grounding you out where it is, because of crud, junk, or because it is touching the block when it is not supposed to?)

2. Check your Spark Plug Wire. Easy, unook it from the plug, stick your finger in, give it a crank (non-MultiMeter way). Did you get shocked? Then it ain't your Plug Wire and Magneto!

With a Multi-/Volt Meter, simply hook her up, and check for juice WHEN you pull the rope. If you got juice, it ain't your Plug Wire or Magneto!

Checking Spark the "normal" way: Grab the Plug with a pair of insulated pliers, hold the plug end against the cylinder head, and pull your rope. Any Spark? What color?

3. STILL no fire. It leaves: Magneto and Plug Wire.
Luckily, they are both in the same place! Tear your blower down, and check to see if the Magneto has slipped out of place (gap is WAY out), or if the Plug Wire has worn to the point it is grounding you out. While you are there, check your Kill Switch wire, to see if she is grounding you out then and there.

4. STILL no fire. That means: Magneto Failing, or Magneto JUNK.
Buy another one, replace it! (Or steal one from another junk Blower/Weedeater. These things are fairly standard, and easy!)
Or, Bad Plug Wire. Meaning she has failed out on you.
Wait......that means: Replace your Magneto! Lucky the things are built together right?

Ihave a sears 2 cycle blower,vac and is not getting spark, is there anyway to check the igniter module--bill

remove the spark plug, plug it back into the plug wire place a screwdriver on the spark plug and the cylinder and pull the starter rope - if there is spark, you will see it on the plug [or you will feel it!]. if you have spark, put the plug back in and try to wiggle it side to side, if it rocks freeley, the cylinder bolts have come loose [a very common problem with these units]. the fix is pretty involved and not fun
