Hi Jeffrey-
I found a youtube video regarding troubleshooting a generator with no spark.

Hope this helps.

I also found a link for the Ryobi Ryi 2300BT Owners Manual.

Without more information, the best guess is that the piston is probably seized in the cylinder, this will not fix itself by adding oil now. It likely needs a new piston and/or rings and/or cylinder or shortblock assembly. You can google your model number for sources of repair parts. Depends what you find when you disassemble it, if you can get the piston out you may be lucky to get by with a new set of rings and honing the cylinder.
But it will be a batch of work for a $200 blower. May be worth it if you can do it yourself and the parts arent too much. Certainly a shop couldn't do it for less than the replacement price of the whole blower.

Use long-nosed pliers to remove the washer from the shaft.

While applying steady upward pressure to the flywheel, firmly strike the end of the shaft with a rubber mallet until the flywheel breaks free. Several blows from the mallet may be necessary to free the flywheel from the engine assembly.

Stating the obvious it is running too lean on the mixture screws, you may well need a special tool to do this, but you need to open ( anti clockwise ) the H screw on the carb about 10 minutes on a clock face, this will richen the mixture and aid acceleration.

Sounds like a fuel problem - have you tried using partial choke? At least, this might verify that you just have a fuel problem. The 4-stroke is not as temporemental as the 2-stroke, but worth checking a few simple things : Is there an obstruction in the fuel supply ? Is the fuel tank supposed to be vented - if so, is the vent blocked ? Is there some dirt in the fuel, leading to a blocked jet in the carburetor ? - if so, drain/empty the carburetor, clean sediment & ensure all jets are clear and refill whole system with clean fresh fuel : If the carburetor or any part of it is loose, there might well be an Induction air-leak ( which could impair the engine's intake of fuel ) : And (of course ) - Is the spark-plug badly "gapped" or fouled ? Try to isolate and eradicate in a methodical way, good luck !

This is just the return to tank pipe, it does not need to be in the fuel, just in the tank far enough not to leak out the top.

If the knob is stuck in the pushed in position it will just click , try and pull it out then unscrew it

That leaves

dirty carburetor with blocked jets. After trying to start, is the plug wet?

faulty ignition coil. If you remove the plug and ground it to earth, (a metal part of the engine), and pull the starter, do you get a nice fat blue spark?

bad compression. You need a compression tester.

i don't know. [stop - your mower may be under warranty and may qualify for free repairs. check with your owner's manual for a free number to call for information]. before working on it, make sure the battery is removed. consider turning it upside down to inspect the wheel. if there is no physical blockage stopping the wheel from turning, you could try spraying the bolt with WD40 or a few drops of motor oil. if the wheel turns, lubricate it again and do the same to the other wheels. if it does not turn, the wheel will have to be taken off.

Found this previously posted:

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position. Put cap on and GO CRAZY!

Snapped it off did you?.... you and 10,000 other ryobi owners.

I purchased on eBay ($7 US, delivered, a few yrs ago). You pry off the remainder and the new one presses on.
