Troy-Bilt Leaf Blower Problem Starting

2-stroke leaf blower will start, but shutdown after about 3 or 4 seconds. It will start right back up, but will then shutdown. It does have a priming bulb. Any help is appreciated.

Check fasteners securing carburetor and cylinder head for tightness.

A fuel line runs from the carburetor into the fuel tank with a fuel filter on the end. Disconnect this fuel line from the carburetor. Gently blow in the fuel line, if there is resistance replace the fuel line and filter.

If you need further assistance, post the model number of trimmer and brand and model number of the carburetor.
