Check your fuel filter in the fuel tank, if you have one.
It may need replacement or cleaning.
Also check your fuel tank for debris/trash and clean it out if necessary.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I recommend that you buy
and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard
and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor
internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small
rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid
and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of
the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to
reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the
carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need
to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes
to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first
and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

This part fits your Leaf Blower. Husqvarna fuel filter. If the fuel filter is clogged, it willrestrict the flow of fuel to the carburetor. As a result, the engine may not start.

I have a br 320 leaf blower I have spark but cannot get the engine to fire. What is my options to check next


The most common reason for this is old fuel. Dump out any old fuel in the tank. If you have left over fuel and it is over 2 months old. Do not use it. Mix up some fresh fuel and put that in the tank. There is still old fuel in the fuel in the fuel lines. Spray some starting fluid in the carb to make the engine run. This will pull the old fuel through the line and let the fresh fuel get to the engine. It should now run.

I would guess the fuel line you installed is kinked somewhere.

Try a tiny spray of Starter Fluid in your machine. If it runs for a second then dies,,,, it would indicate that you have a Fuel problem. Broken gas line of gummed carburetor. Ethanol gas is known for ruining both gas lines and carburetors.

What's your problem? fuel filter and fuel lines


The thinner tube normally goes to the fuel filter and onto the carb connection closest to the pump cover on the carb ( the alloy cover held with a single central screw ) the bigger tube goes to the other connection.

Wont start,wont fire even off starting fluid,has compression,appears to have fire(with plug out and grounded to head)maybe no spark under load? help


Hi, first of all NEVER use starter fluid.........on anything. This stuff (ether) is highly volatile and could destroy your blower and cause you and others around you harm. Starter fluid is meant to start diesel engines when they are cold however, there is the possibility of pre-ignition and that could seriously harm your engine. Make sure your fuel/oil mix is correct. Also try pouring a few drops of mix down the cylinder, after replacing the plug, give the starter a try. With the proper fuel inside the chamber and a confirmed spark from the plug, the motor has no choice but to fire. From this you can determine if your idle is either too lean or too rich. Good luck.

Geting fuel to carb. Will run with starter fluid, but dies immediately when I stop the starter fluid.


sounds like the float and needle are not working proper. The float :floats in the gas bowl raising and seating the needle into a jet hole. If the float has quit lifting the needle out, then no gas will come through to reach the carb. This is why you engine runs with carb fluid because you shoot straight into the carb. Try replacing those 2 and clean the carb. It's a simple task and cheap fix.

Wont start, not getting fuel, checked lines,carb and used starter fluid, runs but won't continue to run


You may need to do a more detailed cleaning on the carburetor. I like to use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to get into the small ports. They work great for this job. You may also need to check the small screen in carb. It gets blocked with debris.If you need further assistance, please contact me.
