How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
The fuel filter might be clogged. A clogged fuel filter is most commonly caused by leaving old fuel in the leaf blower. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog the fuel filter and cause the engine to stall.
To completely start over the game, including all challenge progress, go to Options > Misc > Hard reset. The same result can be achieved by deleting the save. dat file. This will also reset options, which you can preserve by copying options.
Mechanical or electrical issues are the two main categories of industrial blower fan failure that can completely stop the fan. Faulty belts, loose pulleys, insufficient power, inadequate wire size, blown fuses, and other issues can occur in these areas.
Blower motors are designed to circulate air, so they won`t work if there`s no air to move. You should always check the filters and vents surrounding the blower to make sure that the blower isn`t having a hard time working. Look into your air filter`s housing and check the markings on your filter.
Some leaf blowers feature a reverse mode that allows them to function as a vacuum. With this feature, the blower`s motor runs in reverse so that the airflow through the machine moves in the opposite direction, sucking debris into the blower`s chute rather than pushing it away.
Check for a dirty air filter and replace if needed
A clogged filter limits the amount of cool air that passes over the heat exchanger, causing it to overheat and shut off. At the same time, your blower turns on to help cool it down.
Some cordless leaf blowers last for 15-20 minutes, while others can last over an hour. If you have a large yard, choose a cordless leaf blower with a long life to its battery to eliminate the need for a recharge midway through your session.
This is caused by a rich/lean cycle at idle. As the motor leans out the RPM`s increase and richen up the motor, when the motor richens the RPM`s decrease and the motor leans out again. This continual cycle is known as “blower surge”. With proper tuning, some of this surging should be able to be eliminated.

Starts runs a couple of minutes then dies – Echo Gas Blower 135 MPH390 CFM Blower PB250
sounds like you have a bad Ignition Coil (Module). This is how they act
when they start going bad. When they get warm, they quit. Some will
last up to 20 minutes before they shut down. You can sometimes find a
used one pretty cheap at a small engine shop.Jim
BLOWER WILL START WITH FULL CHOKE, BUT SHUTS OFF WHEN TRYING TO REDUCE CHOKE.
I’m having the same problem. My suspicion is the carborator requires gas/air mixture adustments. This requires a special carb adjustment tool – called a Long Single D Tool. I will try to have my fixed very soon – 1 week…I’ll try to keep you posted.
Blower starts but shuts off when I close choke.
Hithere is a fuel delivery problem to find and fix
I recently tuned up my blower. It starts great but if I turn it off Nd try to restart it it floods and will not start until I let it sit for awhile.
If the engine is warm and you shut it down, leave the choke off, lower the revs and start it. (when the choke is wide open you are using the fresh air coming in to dry the spark plugs and prevent flooding). If the motor is already flooded use that procedure to dry the plugs, then go back to full choke until it tries to start and quits again, then use half choke and pull one more time… works all the time.
Poulan gas blower 30 c back pack blower ran fine stoped will not start no spark
Check switch is bad if not coil bad if not getting spark
Started PB620-ST yesterday with some difficulty. However, ran until fuel empty. Refueled today, but will not start. Spark at plug ok. Fuel flowing, but seems to overflow into air filter compartment. Does not seem to “fire” at all.
Sounds like your flooding the engine; I did the same thing. Wait a while to let the gas drain back to the tank. Use your primer bulb once and your choke for only ONE pull; then shut off the choke. Pull start without the choke 2-3 times and it should start.
Why does my blower floor out to kiwk
Adjust need and seat or make sure needld a seat or seated right soundes like not should be no need to adjust needel sounds like put in wrong flip it over metal side go on needle
I have a Echo PB-260L Blower. It starts fine then gradually loses power sometimes completely shutting off. I have replaced the fuel filter spark plug air filter and have cleaned the screen.
Check the exhaust port upstream from the muffler and make sure it is not restricted with carbon. Mine was less than half way covered over with carbon. Scraped out carbon, checked muffler and screen(ok), back-blow the fuel line harness including the fuel filter and fuel tank vent and took carb apart and blew out all passages, not replacing anything and now runs fine. Would not rev past high idle before. Be sure gas is FRESH and mixed at 40-50 to 1. Hope this helps.
