Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The next time it does this... loosen the gas cap a lot momentarily for about 10 seconds then tghten it and attempt a restart. If if starts right away again the gas cap is bad. It is supposed to breathe via a rubber seal in the cap. There are 5 parts in the cap. If it can not breathe the gas tank goes into a vacuum as fuel drains and you will experience fuel starvation.

Also check inside the fuel tank for debris.

130BT (I used the 2001 - 2007) There is also a 2008-2010 choice
and then click on Fuel tank a.s.s.y

I suspect the problem is either going to the the fuel cap or the fuel filter.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

    One other thing that can cause this is... a cracked fuel line or a pinched / kinked fuel line. Fuel line cracks manifest themselvs at fittings where they mate but usually at the end of any fitting. Give me 20 minutes in the shop and you would have it back in tip top shape. Check all of the fuel lines, all 5 parts of the gas cap, the fuel flow on the carb side of the fuel filter. If the fuel flow after the filter is slow then check fuel flow before the filter. If the flow problem is before the filter then the port in the bottom of the fuel tank is most likely clogged. Worst case scenario... open the "L" jet on the carb 1/8th turn. (make fractional ajustments) After each adjustment pull full throttle and check for stalls or a lack of acceleration. The "H" jet is only adjusted at FULL throttle. The "L" adjustment is only adjusted when you have problems inscreasing speed from a lower near idle RPM. what ever you do do not make large adjustments on either the H or the L jets. All adjustments are fractions of a turn of 1/8th turn or LESS. I have been doing this for over 4 decades in real life. (see linik)

    Lets communicate vs toss out bad 2 thumb ratings and get your blower working normally again. Feel free to ask any questions. I will gladly help you.

130BT Blower can't pull start cord.

Can be a couple issues. The obvious is seized. The other is a broken jammed connecting rod. I would put some oil down the plug hole and let it sit overnight. Then after a day or so...try again with the wratchet. In both directions, forward then backward just to try and free it.

Sounds like a fuel starvation problem, Strip and clean carb. Avoid using airlines to clean carbs. remove low and high adjustment screws, reset to factory settings. Walbro carbs are generally scew both of them back in all the way and then turn out 2 full turns each anticlockwise.

New; ran 4-5 hrs; then quit. now no spark.

Check the spark! Could be the ignition shuts down when the engine runs too hot. You could use a little more oil mix.
