Why does my leaf blower bog down when I give it gas?
A dirty air filter is one of the most common causes behind a leaf blower that is bogging down: the air is enough for the engine to idle, but as soon as you switch to full-throttle, the machine will stall. All we need to do is replace the air filter. To do this, start by opening the air filter cover.
How do I start my Homelite blower vacuum?
How do you start a Homelite blower?

- Push the primer bulb in and release it slowly six times. Close the choke (put the choke on).

What would cause a leaf blower not to start?
There may be old fuel in the tank. Leftover fuel in your leaf blower is one of the primary reasons a leaf blower won’t start. Gas left in the tank for 30 days or more can deteriorate, causing the engine to stall or not start properly. If left for 6 months or more, the gasoline can turn into a thick sludge.
How do you adjust the carburetor on a leaf blower?
How to Adjust the Carb on a Homelite Blower

- Turn the “L” screw clockwise until the screw seats with the screwdriver.
- Turn the “H” screw clockwise until the screw seats.
- Rev the engine.

What does a spark arrestor do on a leaf blower?

Are Homelite Leaf Blowers any good?
I am so extremely happy with my Homelite blower and have had it since 2011.
