Thank you for your question on the Weed-eater leaf blower not starting.

You have done many of the required steps to get the blower running.

A clogged muffler spark arrester screen could be the problem but usually the blower will start but not rev up if the muffler is plugged.

I would suggest putting a half of teaspoon of gas down the throat of the carburetor and then try starting it.

If it fires or starts and then dies it is most likely a problem with in the carburetor. If it does not start then I would suggest changing the spark plug if you have not already done so.

Please let know what you find and we can continue to troubleshoot with that information.
