Echo PB 2100 Leaf Blower will not speed up

Blower starts, idles and runs at medium speed but will not reach max speed. The throttle opens fully but the RPM stays at medium and sounds bogged down.
Just put in a new spark plug and cleaned the air filter at the end of last season.

Thanks

    I am having the same problem with my blower. I asked around and was told that I may have a vaccum problem with it as the blower is not getting enough gas to guna max speed.

    You got it......that was the problem. The screen was a mess, I had to scrape the thick stuff off then soak in Lacquer Thinner and brush it clean. Runs GREAT now.

    Thanks

    your solution worked great....thanks for saving me the cost of a 50.00 minimum repair job

    I had the same problem. It was a tiny crack in my float bowl primer pump bowl. I replaced it and it works great now. The Problem; The gas has too much Ethanol and breaks up rubber. Make sure the gas you use is no more then 10% Ethanol in small 2 stroke engines especially. Ethanol helps the smog issue and does not harm cars except worse mileage. The more in gas, the worst mileage and terrible on small engines. I hear, Shell, Mobile & Chevron are around 10% which is normal but still not good for mileage in cars and smaller gardening engines.

Rebuild the carb, costs $10 for the kit and a monkey could do it. You need a phillips screwdriver.

2017 Kawasaki Ultra 310x, 75 hours. Full throttle engine acts as if governed and bogs down. 2/3 throttle gets best response but only reaches 6000 RPM, normal for this ski is 7000


Have you ever heard of RPM roll over? If the engine was allowed to reach it's max RPM under throttle the inertia would cause it to exceed its design max RPM, so it set below that to avoid flying rods and pistons. And yes it is governed.

Messed up carburetor


Start out with both screws at 1-1/2 run saw full throttle and adj. screw closest to air filter, which should be "H" screw it in slowly till you reach max rpm's then reverese the screw just till it starts to slow down, keep in mind don't take forever to do this cause you don't want it running lean (max rpm's) because it will COOK in no time! After you have the high speed set let saw Idle, then accelerate quickly, if it bogs turn the "L"" clockwise little at a time reving it each time, till you get the bog worked, then when acceleration sounds quite responsive then go back to H speed and readjust it, open it up some and run it wide open and readadjust H speed to where it just drops off on rpms on the rich side not lean side, righty (leany)...Lefty Richy ! Good luck

How do I adjust the carburator on my Stihl BG55 leaf blower


You can adjust the carb by turning the screws counterclockwise, the H high speed screw is the one closest to the Air Filter and the low L is closest to cylinder (Motor) Change your spark plug first, then run it at wide open throttle and slowly turn the "H" screw counterclockwise a little at a time if it blubbers then it is too far out (rich) so take it the other way till you reach peak R.P.M. s -then back it out opposite way till the sound of the R.P.M's just starts to drop and High speed is set. the low speed is adjusted at idle to where there is no hesitation when you pull throttle open, keep trying till you get a good acceleration with out hesitation, and you are good to go!

Poulan 45cc chainsaw will start running with starting with choke, but will not stay running.


Sounds like the low speed fuel adjustment is out of whack....you can reset it by turning it in all the way clockwise...then as a starting point, turn it out 1 and 1/2 times, start the engine and slowly adjust the screw until the engine starts to choke out..when this occurs, turn it back in until it starts to choke again...then you need to set it somewhere in between to find the "happy medium"....thew high speed screw is adjusted after you get the engine idling properly...if you haven't messed with this then I wouldn't worry about it..unless you have poor high speed operation, then you will need to set the high speed screw...the object here is to obtain the best low to high speed throttle...if , when you throttle up the saw, the engine bogs or goes to high speed slowly , here is where you adjust to get the best throttle response...use small increments until you achieve the desired response

Not running at full throttle


close to the carb you will find two tiny screws. They are labeled H and L. L sets the idle speed. H sets the max RPM. Hold the throttle wide open and turn the H screw. When you find the very top end, back it down some or it will be running too lean. That would make it run hot, and provides less lubrication. Could result in engine failure if you run it too lean.

How do I adjust needle valves on a 25cc Homelite UT08111A Backpack leaf blower?


Set the lowend & highend needles to about 1 3/4 to 2 turns each. Choke the carb or prime it, until the carb is wet. Fire up the engine and let it warm up. Let's set the topend first since it's the easier of the two. Go to full throttle. Adjust the topend needle for peak RPM. Leave it wide open for about a minute to see if it changes any. Should the engine go lean, open the lowend needle slightly, if this dosen't work... you will have to adjust the needle valve inside the carb.( I will explain this later) If the topend runs OK, then slowly pull the throttle down until the engine begins to "four cycle" hold the throttle there. Adjust the lowend needle until the "four cycling" barely stops. Now lower the throttle more until it "four cycles" again, and adjust the lowend again. Keep doing this until you reach full idle. Now, from full idle begin to throttle up until the engine starts to bog or hesitate. Open up the lowend needle just enough to eliminate the bog or hesitation.

Bogs out


First check the air cleaner. Clean or replace it. You need to set the mixtures for the carburetor. You will find a Low and High adjustment screw usually on the left or right side of the carburetor on the outside of the housing. At idle turn the screw in or clockwise until the rps starts to decrease. Then start turning it out till you hit max idle rpms. Turn screw back in a quarter to half turn and it should be idling smoothly. Be careful here and get someone to hold saw if necessary but hold in throttle to full speed and do the same with high adjustment screw. turn it in till rpm starts to drop then back it out until you get to max rpm and it won't go any higher then turn it back in a half a turn. After adjusting the mixture it might be necessary to readjust the idle speed.

Hello:

From your Description it Sounds like the Exhaust is Restricted or the "H" Mixture Screw Resuires Adjusting.
>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File for Doing a Diagnostic on the Engine for this Problem. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**Remove the Muffler and Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Clear.
>>If it is, then Try to Start the engine with the Muffler Off.
>>If it Starts and Runs Properly, then Clean the Spark Arrestor Screen in the Muffler or Replace the Muffler if Required.
>>The Following is the Instruction File for Setting the Air Mixture Screws. Any Input is Appreciated. The Procedure is the Same for 1 or 2 Mixture Screws, Just Use the Instruction File and Skip Over the Section with the Missing Mixture Screw ( Usually the H Mixture Screw).
>>Now Setting the Air Mixture Screws:
>>****Turn the Idle Air (L) and Main Air (H) Mixture Screws In Until SNUG **Do Not Jam** Then Reverse Both Screws 1 1/2 Turns. Set the Throttle Full Open, Start the Engine.
>>Turn the Main Air (H) Mixture Screw Clockwise Until Proper Revs are Obtained. **Carefully Use your Finger and Move the Governor Arm to Rev the Engine (on Chainsaws and Trimmers Use the Trigger to Rev the Engine) Until you Reach Max RPMs (on Chainsaws and Trimmers, the RPMs are Not Set to MAX. Set to Max and then Reverse the Setting Screw 1/4 or 1/2 Turn. If the H Mixture Screw is Set too High; the Engine will be Starved for the Oil in the Gas and Damage the Piston and Jug/Cylinder) and the Engine is Running Proper at Full Throttle Up a Grade and for Chainsaws and Trimmers they Do Not Bog DOwn Under a Load. Occasionally you May have to Turn this Counter Clockwise to Achieve the Proper Revs.**
>>Now Allow the Engine to Idle. Set the Engine Idle Screw (Not Idle Air) so the Engine will Stay Running if Required.
>>Now Set the Idle Air (L) Mixture Screw so there is No Hesitation when Rapidly Throttling from Idle to Full Throttle. Reset the Engine Idle if Required.****
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Do not have basic setting for 2 speed jet so engine revs up and down instead of constant speed.
