Questions & Answers about this model powered by

Gasoline power blower, model no. 358.797180. Will not operate in "run" position.

Blower runs good when choke lever is positioned a little past choke position, but will die when putting lever in the "run" position. I have cleaned the carbuerator, but still makes no difference. It appears that the carbuerator gets too much air in the run position. Please advise how to fix the problem. All troubleshooting suggestions have been tried.

good afternoon..... i can fully understand your concern regarding this issue. i did locate a link that will discuss this situation in greater detail. though this link discusses a different model number, the mechanics are likely going to be very similar. keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction. i hope this link will help guide you as to what might be wrong with your power blower and have a nice day.

check the fuel lines and fuel filter (in the tank) to make sure they are not broken, split, or plugged up. if the fuel lines and filter are fine then the problem will have to be with the carburetor. if there are air adjustment screws on the side of the carburetor, turn them in all the way and then back them out 1.5 turns and adjust as needed from there (in 1/4 turn increments). if there are no adjustment screws (and i don't believe there are on yours) then you'll need to re-clean the carburetor to see if any improvement can be had. otherwise, the other option is to replace the carburetor. i show this carb to only be about $30 so there will be no rebuild kit for it.

thank you for using manage my life!

i have same problem, i'm going to change my fuel filter and my fuel lines and see if that helps. too much air probably means not enough gas!
