Gas Blower won't start

Have checked everything ok. Next need to diassemble carburator and blow out jets. Can I use Gumout Spray, or should I only use air? I've ordered a replacement gasket and I am waiting your reply.

Carburetor maintenance like this is important to smooth running. If you have the model number of your blower available it may help the expert provide a better answer. I did find a how to site if you wish to check.

Thank you for your question.

I prefer to use carburetor cleaner to clean the carburetor. It breaks up the dirt better than just compressed air. If you are going to use carburetor cleaner do not get it on the rubber diaphragms. The carburetor cleaner can ruin the rubber. I like to refer customers to a video on how to clean the carburetor. Click


to watch the video.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on repairing the blower.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:
