Well, try checking the muffler and exhaust port for excessive carbon buildup. Later!

Leaf blower

Hello and sorry guys i made a mistake it is a Ryobi ZR08570 leaf blower and it was working well up until now. I did check the exhaust and cleaned it out I also checked for spark at the plug and there is but it still wont start. Is a carb cleaning the next the next step? Thanks for all of your help..

Is the spark plug wet or dry? If it won't start with starting fluid (not recommended for 2 strokes), then it may be flooded. Dribble a little gas into the spark plug hole and see if it will start with choke open and throttle wide open.

Sounds like you need to work on the carb some more. You may want to install a kit in the carb too. Check fuel lines, and make sure the gas in it isn't stale.

Ryobi leaf blower..

Hello guys i checked out the exhaust muffler on the blower and i noticed that it was flooded with gas.. I cleaned it out and I let it air dry hoping that this will let the blower start.

Have the same problems with my Echo PB 770T. It will not start anymore, it's has about 5hrs. Run time on it too. I flooded it bad 2 weeks ago trying to start it, I was able to get it going tho. It ran fine, now I cant get it started at all spark plug is wet from priming has compression too. I dribbled some gas in the cylinder and tried to get it to kick or sputter but I get nothing. I run 104 octane gas with the echo 2 cycle oil. I run this in my echo weed whacker and this blower all last season no issues at all. I don't know what it could be. It won't even sputter. It usually starts within 3 pulls all the time...

If the plug is wet, it is flooded. Adding gas will flood it worse. You'll need to get the cylinder and crankcase dried out and probably the carburetor to quit leaking. It should not get gas in the engine from priming it.

What's the best way to dry it out? I figured the plug is wet from me pulling it so many times drawing the gas into the cylinder?? I thought something happend to the timing.
