I have a McCulloch, that the hose rotted off the fuel strainer in the tank, I replace the hoses, it ran for awhile then stopped, removed the carb. an have cleaned, { 7 Times} it runs for awhile then stops, Usually I dump lighter fluid in the carb. if it starts Ign is OK if not its a fuel problem. You could check on the filter, I still have a problem with mine, its a pain when your on the roof an it stops. so check the fuel filter is the only thing I could suggest to you GOOD LUCK

check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

SOURCE: Husqvarna Leaf Blower won't start

yes, it is. i suggest checking to make sure the plug is firing--you can check by removing it, plugging it back into the plug wire and resting the threads of the plug on any ground--usually right outside the spot where the plug screws in. have someone pull the cord while you see if the plug fires. DON'T touch the plug while the engine is being cranked. also, even if you see a spark, it may not fire inside the engine. if the spark is weak, you may want to put in a new one.

Pull the muffler and look for scoring on the piston. I think you cooked it my friend. You may have a bad coil or fuel cap, but it's more likely you ran the mix too lean.

I have a Craftsman 794774 leaf blower/vac w/25cc engine that won't start.


Many of these small blowers have an alloy key moulded into the flywheel, if this has sheared it will knock the ignition timing out, and will never run.

My gas blower was running fine and it ran out of gas i filled it up and primed it and it will not fire ,, i poured a little gas in the spark plug and it did fire and ran rought for a few seconds


Most always this is a build-up, or manifestation of either flat or old gas, gas with too much oil mixed in, or good old H2O in the storage gas container that runs into the power tool as the supplying tank gets a bit low, or gets shaken before filling-up the blower. Completely empty the blower of fuel. If you are not capable, then have someone remove thewater and/or debris from the carb. inside the blower. or Empyt all fuel in the tank then remove the plug and give it "200" pulls, then replace the plug and give it "100" more. This will sometimes move the trash through if you cannot have it professionally repaired. Replace ALL old fuel with new, properly mixed fuel.

Were you running a fuel mixture of 40:1(3.2 oz of 2 cycle oil to 1 gal of gas), that you mixed up before you started using it again. The unit may have had to much use on Saturday and may be burned up. Try to have a compression test done on the engine, needs to be at least 100 psi to run. If that proves to be good then you can start looking at Fresh gas mixture, a new spark plug, Carburetor rebuild or an ignition module.
