We carry replacement parts, repair parts and accessories for 1 Bolens Leaf Blower models
Homeowners everywhere trust Bolen for their outdoor power equipment needs, and Bolen leaf blowers live up to the brand's reputation for reliability. If your leaf blower fails to start, a few simple troubleshooting procedures may save you a visit from the repair technician. Follow these tips and purchase the appropriate Bolen leaf blower parts to get your machine back in the yard.
Old fuel left in the tank for long periods can accumulate moisture and become more difficult to burn. Drain out the fuel and replace it before trying to start the blower again. Improperly mixed fuel can also affect the leaf blower's performance, so check the owner's manual for the optimal fuel ratio before refilling the tank.
If the leaf blower doesn't start and you notice a strong smell of gas, the fuel may have flooded the engine. Unflood the engine by pulling the cord as many times as needed until it starts, being careful not to use the choke. This should drain enough fuel from the leaf blower parts to let the engine start. You can also manually drain the engine by removing the spark plug and tilting the leaf blower.
Complete the leaf blower troubleshooting process by examining the spark plug for cracks, wear or discoloration. Replace or clean it if necessary, and reconnect the ignition wire to repair the machine's ability to ignite. You can also replace the spark arrestor on the muffler or clean it using a wire brush.
