Because leaf blowers demand so much power from their 2-stroke engines, it`s recommended that users disconnect the spark plug, check it for corrosion, and make sure it meets the manufacturer`s specifications once a week while the blower is in regular use.
The most common cause of a snowblower without a spark is a fouled spark plug. Cleaning and gapping or replacing the spark plug will fix the problem. Other likely causes of snowblower no spark include: Faulty control switch (on/off switch)
If no spark appears, check for broken wires, shorts, grounds or a defective stop switch. Once you have confirmed that the stop switch is working, reconnect the spark plug lead.
The air filter could be blocked.

A common problem that could be keeping your leaf blower from starting is a blocked air filter. Clogged air filters cause the blower`s engine to receive too much fuel and not enough air, which often leads to a faulty start (or no start at all).

Loss of spark is caused by anything that prevents coil voltage from jumping the electrode gap at the end of the spark plug. This includes worn, fouled or damaged spark plugs, bad plug wires or a cracked distributor cap.
The more worn or dirty spark plugs are, the greater the pull on the rewind and more effort is required to produce an adequate spark. If you haven`t turned on your engine recently, your mower won`t start and/or you have to tug repeatedly on the rewind to start the engine, a damaged spark plug may be the culprit.

Model 358 craftsman blower, where is the fuel filter
ANSWER : Follow the fuel line from the tank to the carb. If it has one, its in that tubing line. There will prolly be a particle filter screen inside the tank to keep crud from getting to the carb. Other than that – there’s really not much to the fuel system on these.
