How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

The carburetor or fuel filter might be clogged.

First, check the carburetor to see what has happened. If it`s clogged, there are three options: clean the carburetor, rebuild it, or replace it entirely. If a clogged fuel filter is the source of the issue, you`ll likely need to replace it.

old or bad fuel can also create a clog in the fuel filter which may cause the leaf blower to stall. we recommend replacing the filter with a new one a dirty air filter can cause the blower to stall as well by restricting the air coming into the carburetor.
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.
If your blower is having a difficult time starting, then you may be dealing with a carburetor issue. The carburetor`s job is to ensure the proper mix of fuel and air is directed to the blower`s engine. As mentioned, the carburetor can become clogged, making it difficult for fuel and air to enter the engine.
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.
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.
Problems include dirty filters, broken wires, poor voltage supply and faulty limit switch or capacitor. You can test your limit switch with a multimeter, and clean the blower motor`s wire coils. If this doesn`t work, you may need to replace your furnace blower motor.
Remember: If the blower motor stops working, air is not moving through the system. This means the evaporator coil might freeze up, or it could cause damage to the compressor. If your AC turns on but won`t blow cool air, shut it down until the problem can be diagnosed and repaired.
Defective spark plug – Due to carbon build-up or a weakened electrode, a spark plug will degrade over time and be unable to ignite the compressed fuel and air inside the engine`s combustion chamber to start or run the engine.
The engine misfires or runs rough. The engine starts, but stalls shortly after. There is a noticeable increase in fuel consumption during normal equipment use. The spark plug itself appears damaged or corroded with carbon build-up or rust.
Many times this is caused by a plugged vent in the gas cap. Try running it and unscrew the fuel cap part way to see if venting the tank will allow it to run without the choke. If so, then clean the cap with hot water and dish soap or replace the cap with a new one.
The choke in your leaf blower draws fuel into the carburetor. It is used to make a cold engine easier to start. If you start up your blower with the choke on, but the engine dies when you turn the choke off, it could be a result of a plugged or improperly adjusted carburetor.

Seems to start easily run for a few minutes and then slow and stop–bulb remains full –gas is good–have tried half choke in case too lean–did not solve–also seems possibly related to the angle I hold it at–seems to cut out quicker if blower tube angled more downward.
ANSWER : Your filter may be hanging up in the tank. you also my be losing compression

While running blower starts dying down in power going up and bown and cuts off
ANSWER : I wonder if it is starting to seize. Have you been using cheap ethanol gas. Or have you done research online for gas stations that sell real gas? If you don’t use real gas on a 2 stroke engine it will over heat and eventually burn the valve and cause distortion all over. It will eventually seize.http://pure-gas.org/

Starts runs a couple of minutes then dies – Echo Gas Blower 135 MPH390 CFM Blower PB250
ANSWER : It
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

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.
ANSWER : 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.

Will only develop power (and run somewhat properly) when the choke is engaged about 90%. Starts fine.
ANSWER : Sounds to me as tho you may have a loose carburetor or another part that is letting air into the system. Check all bolts and screws for tightness. Also, you may need to clean the carburetor or put some cleaner in your gas. Not too much, only about a tablespoon, but check the screws/bolts first.

I have a new echo PB250 Leaf blower and it will not keep running. It starts fine but shuts off after a few seconds.
ANSWER : Sounds like a dirty carb, dissamble it and rinse good with carb clean, be careful when taking the top off it that you get it back together the same spray the white center good and all little holes good. then reassemble, also try to loosen your gas cap maybe first before cleaning carb, you might have a plugged vent in the line coming out of the tank. Good Luck
