Ryobi gas blower will not start

I have a Ryobi blower / vac approximately 3 years old which was working fine one day and will not start since. I replaced the spark plug and check to make sure all connections were fine. when starting it seems that it is not getting either a spark or fuel is not getting to the motor.

Back to basics, remove the spark plug, lay on its side against a metal part of the machine ( away from the plug hole ) crank the engine, do you have a spark at the plug? if yes then we more that likely have a fuel issue, if no spark the ignition unit is bad ( make sure the switch is on ) if you have a spark re fit the plug, crank the engine with the choke on, remove the plug again is the tip wet? if no there is no fuel to the engine, remove the fuel filter from inside the fuel tank and replace with new, try again, if still no fuel to the plug a carb strip and clean will be required, for the time it takes it is well worth removing the muffler and check the condition of the piston face through the open port, any signs of scuffing and the machine has seized and will require further investigation.

SOURCE: ryobi 700r gas trimmer, replace old fuel lines

Line from tank with the filter on it is the supply line and goes to the carb inlet fitting. This is typically on the "bottom" of the carb (with the tank being up) and will usually have a fitting with barbs or a bulge on it to ensure a tight fit. The other fitting on the carb is the return line and is usually a straight tube fitting with no barbs. That line goes the suction side of the primer bulb. The third line goes from the outlet of the primer bulb to the return barb fitting in the bottom of the tank. Fittings have to be removed from tank to properly install the new hoses on them. Remove retainer ring on outide of tank and push fittings into tank, then shake out of the fill opening. More details on replacing hoses are listed in another post about Repairing Ryobi trimmer.

To leemineres, if hoses are on right and unit still stalls after starting initially you probably need to disassemble carb and clean out using spray carb cleaner. May be sticky needle valve, or partially plugged port or jet.Could also be hole in diaphragm. Gasket and diaphragm kit would be good to add when you take apart, even if diaphragm does not have a hole.

SOURCE: Won't start

Starting problems with 2-cycle engines are usually traced to fuel line/filter clogging due to jelling of the fuel mixture while the engine is idle. Best fix is fuel mix pretreatment with some kind of gas saver in the gas can. Marine grade additives are the best, such as 2+4 gas treatment. Now your stuck with pulling the fuel lines and blowing them clean. If the carb has a primer bulb, you can sometimes force the fuel through, but a complete cleaning is in order. Pulling the plug and putting a few drops of fuel mix directly into the cylinder head, (or in the air intake), can sometimes get the motor to fire. This proofs the problem as being fuel starvation.

I have a factory refurbished Ryobi ZR08510 blower/vac from the factory. I cannot get it started. What should I try first?


Hi Paul:
I'd start by pulling the spark plug, attaching it to the lead, then spin it over and check for spark.
This will probably be a 2 cycle motor (Check to confirm) so make sure your fuel is mixed correctly.

I have a Craftsman 2-cycle blower/vac and its only 3 years old and have changed out the spark plug and fresh mixed gas and still won't start. I need some help anyone know?


Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old. Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage. May need to clean or replace carburetor.

I have a 2 year old Ryobi RY34440 String trimmer, 30cc. Last year worked fine, this year pull cord is so easy to pull it doesn't even turn engine over. Is is the spark plug?


Either the pull starter is not pulling or you are not getting compression. To check you need to check the spark plug is still snug. If so, remove the plug and put a drinking straw in the hole to touch the piston. Slowly pull the starter to see if the piston is moving. If the piston is moving and the plug was snug then you are losing compression somewhere, like a head gasket. If not moving then the problem most likely is in the starter, and disassembly required to investigate.

If really helpful, please rate.

I have a Ryobi brushcutter that is 4 years old.When I was using it the other day it just would not run at full throttle. I checked spark plug,air filter and fuel filter. No adjustments on carb. I have no...


Smokey 2 cycle oil will cause the exhaust ports to carbon up and plug the spark arrestor.
Remove the muffler, use a pick to clean out the exhaust port on the engine, and the muffler inside opening, then clean the spark arrestor screen, to assure yourself you are correcting the problem start the machine up with the muffler off, it should run like a charm, if it goes back to running badly when you reattach the muffler it may be clogged on the inside.

My ryobi 25cc leaf blower rarely can make max rpm. runs fine otherwise, just can't get the engine speed it used to have. it is about 4 years old and hasn't seen too much use.


first thing to check is the screen (spark arrestor) on the muffler if it has one. When these get clogged units often will idle fine, but not be able to rev up much or at all.

If the screen is clogged, clean it and reinstall it, should work fine then.

Ryobi backpack leaf blower about three years hard to start


Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check cylinder compression


Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

3 year old ryobi gas trimmer won't start...didn't winterize. I follow the start-up directions and it won't turn-over.


This could be caused by tons of problems. I'm going to assume you've checked the spark at the plug first. If not then you'll want to pull the plug out, leave connected to the wire and check to see if there's a blue spark when you pull the starter string. When my trimmer finally wouldn't start (or keep running) I found there were small cracks in the fuel lines. It was causing problems with the prime (for starting) and then with the running. My engine wasn't leaking fuel so it was hard to find.
