Why does my Ryobi leaf blower won’t stay running?
The carburetor might be clogged. A clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the leaf blower for a long period of time. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to stall. If the carburetor is clogged, try cleaning it with carburetor cleaner.
Why is my backpack blower losing power?
A bad battery can lead to a loss of power in your leaf blower. If your leaf blower engine is lacking power, it could be due to a blocked air filter. A plugged air filter will restrict air flow into the engine, reducing power and performance. Changing the air filter is an easy fix, and should solve this issue.
Why does my leaf blower dies when I give it gas?
If the air filter in your leaf blower is partially plugged, it can cause your engine to run, but die at full throttle. The air filter is designed to prevent debris from entering the engine, and over time this debris can accumulate and lead to a clog. A clogged air filter may cause your blower to idle roughly as well.
