Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
If the engine is a 2 stroke the fuel must be mixed with 2 stroke oil at the ratio recommend by the engine manufacturer. If the ratio of fuel to oil isn’t followed the engine will not have enough lubrication and will seize
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 :
If the piston rings or the cylinder are worn, your blower will lose power. These parts can become damaged for many reasons, such as running your blower with an incorrect fuel ratio. The most common reason to replace this part is because the piston rings are worn.
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.
What you may be experiencing is that, when accelerating, the intake manifold vacuum is decreased. Vacuum is used to change the vents from defrost to dash to floor. With a loss of vacuum, the system defaults to the defrost position.
Engine RPM bog down occurs as the engine is loaded beyond its torque-producing capabilities. This occurs when engine RPMs are allowed to decay below the design specification. Bog down can occur during ground start, taxi, and the landing roll.
The “Bog” simply means the engine is not receiving enough fuel when you go to wide open throttle. While there are other issues that may cause similar reactions within the carburetor, often the problem can be traced back to the accelerator pump system. Incorrect adjustment is the typical culprit.
If your leaf blower does not blow air, it is possible that debris has been sucked into the blower housing, impeding the impeller from doing its job. If the impeller is loose or the blades of the impeller are damaged or broken off, it can also cause the blower to become unable to blow air.

Ok that’s half the battle. Probably the easiest thing to do is to clean the carb. So I would get some carb cleaner and using the little tube that comes with it spray into the high and low ports on the carb. Then spray in the outlet side of the carb.
Ps. Remove the little black and white caps and turn the screws on each while counting the number of turns to close (this way when you put the screws back in then all you have to do is count the turns to put them back at the factory settings). Now remove the screws and gently put the tube in each port and spray.
Also you may as well clean the filter with soap and water and let it dry. Once the filter dries take some fresh oil and drop a couple of drops on the filter and make sure it’s has a small amount of oil in it.
Let me know how things go! Good luck!
Toro clear won't start – Toro Power Clear 621 R
Bad gas , plug ,air filter , no spark ck all need all 3 to start
Weed eater is locked up. can not pull cord at all.
Try taking the cover off around the pull if you can. Likely the cord is not free to spin, or there is a rub on the fly wheel stopping it from moving.
Toro 149cc Lawn Mower Won't Start – Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
Bad carburetor your old fuel jammed up the jet so it won’t get fuel and if it does it will start and shut off So replace the carb or try to clean the jet and run non oxy fuel only
Ran last year, won’t start this year. Changed fuel and replaced spark plug. Checked spark and attempted to start with battery and tried with pull cord but no start. pulled plug and it had fuel on it so i cleaned it let it sit an hour and tried again, no start. any suggestions?
It might have tipped over on its side. Look at the air filter, if you see oil or gas on the filter then you might have to remove and clean the carburetor. I would start by cleaning/replacing the air filter and trying it again. If its getting fuel and the spark plug works then the only other side of the fire triangle is air.
Poulan blower was running – ran out of gas – put gas in – won’t start- primed – won’t start – let sit – won’t start-took cover off – sprayed starter fluid in carb – won’t start- -(very little stutter) won’t start-set overnight – repea -twon’t start-wits end !!!
Does it use a fuel and oil mixture?You probably did that.
Try removing the spark plug and cleaning it with a wire brush or some emery cloth.Make sure you have spark by connecting the plug wire and resting the plug on the metal motor block.
Do not hold the plug in your hand ,if you have no spark you may have a bad magneto.

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
