If it has a spark then try spraying some starter fluid on the air filter. If it attempts to run then the carburator is stopped up. If it doesn't then you most likely have low compression. Remove the spark plug and screw in a compression tester and pull the starter a few times. It has to have no less than 70 psi to fire and run. 90+ would be even better. If it is 50 and below try pouring a little oil in the spark plug hole and repeat the test. If it improves a little then you have a scored cylinder or piston or stuck or broken piston rings. Let me know what you learn and I'd be glad to walk you through some more.

I can not get my craftsman leaf blower to start. I put a new spark plug and fresh gas. Won't start.


Not to sure without seeing or hearing it being pulled over. Compression? Very likely needs some carb work/kit.

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.

Husqvarna model 125b Hand held blower (Gas) No


If you have tried a new spark plug and you still have no spark, then your Ignition Coil, (Module) has gone bad. They aren't cheap if you buy it new. Try to find a used one if you can for around $10.

Good Luck!

Won't start --has gas--has spark craftsman leaf bower


most likely the air filter is clogged, take it out blow it out or spray water through it and allow it to dry completely.

alterinavely, just pouring a small amount of gas onto the filter should make it work, i would do that even if you do clean it properly.

this method works for cars too!

My Craftsman leaf blower will not start. Why not?


Inside the carb is yet another fuel filter in the form of a screen. It is located just under the inlet needle and it would be included in a carb REBUILD KIT (not simply a diaphragm kit).
Replacing the screen and rebuilding the carb take nearly the same amount of labor so buy yourself a kit. Roughly $10.00 for most Hand-Held blowers.
Hope this helps.
