How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

Leaf blowers are prone to accumulating dirt and debris such as leaves because of how they`re used, especially if your leaf blower also functions as a vacuum. The fan blade could also be broken or damaged, causing it to make a noise each time it rotates.
There are many different reasons why a leaf blower may fail to start, including stale fuel, engine flooding, dirty air filters, faulty spark plugs, defective batteries, blown fuses, and contact issues of the power switch.
Often, noise from the blower motor is a result of insufficient lubrication. The hum may also result from dirt and debris getting inside the unit and causing damage. Noise from loose equipment is typically the result of age or poor maintenance. Belts, nuts and bolts can loosen over time.
Squealing and screeching sounds are usually due to an issue with the blower motor. The motor has bearings that are prone to drying over time. Motor bearing issues can usually be resolved by adding lubricant.
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.
Maintenance of gas powered leaf blowers produces toxic waste like fuel filters and contaminated air filters. Blowers erode, compact and dry out soil and harm plants, microorganisms and pollinators.
If fan blades are hitting the AC inside, you will hear this clicking noise every time the blade hits the inside of the system. There could be something damaging your blower fan. If the clicking is coming from outside your house, it is most likely coming from your compressor.
If your air conditioner is making a shrieking noise, this is an indicator of an issue with the fan motor. This sound may also be caused by a broken motor in the compressor of the condenser system. A screeching or squealing noise may also be caused by a damaged blower fan motor inside your house.
The most obvious culprit is the belt in your blower motor. Just like a car, your furnace has a belt that helps power the system. With enough use the belt can wear thin and need to be replaced. When the belt worn too thin or out of alignment it will make a high pitched squealing noise.

I have a Toro 51598 electric leaf blower. Last year a breaker in the electrical box tripped and the blower naturally stopped. But, the episode seemed to have damaged the variable-air-flow-dial which on the blower – it was either on or off, nothing inbetween worked. This year, after some solid hours of operation, it just stopped working regardless of where where the variable-air-flow-dial was set. It is worth replacing that variable-air-flow-dial and some related components, or is there likely something else wrong with it? The bushings seem fine.
ANSWER : These machines are considered “disposable” items and most service centers won’t even repair them, saying that it is not “cost effective.” I have never come across a parts list for one other than maybe the plastic housing on them (they may exist), but costwise you may be better off getting another tool unless the Toro is still under warranty.

Where is the flywheel located on an Echo PB251 gas leaf blower?
ANSWER : Before you go through the trouble of dismantling the blower to get to the flywheel you should perform a compression test. 140 psi is ideal. Less than 100 its probably not worth repairing. Less than 90 it shouldn’t run.

I am not getting a spark
ANSWER : No spark can be a bad switch *(need to go in and unplug it from the ignition module and retest) or your ignition module has given up the ghost.

Get a t-handle set and go online and look up the parts. A module might cost more than a new unit….I think we both know what that means! Be safe and good luck!
