A stuck float in the carburetor bowl can cause this in mowers, but I’m not sure about in a leaf blower. I would start with that

Changed all major gaskets: Cylinder to crankcase, case half, exhaust & carb. Now it runns right. The carb can be adjusted and the choke is full open when warmed up as it's supposed to be.

Gaskets ca be bought from Homelite directly at http://www.homelite.com/service_support/order_parts

Enter the model numbers & see the exploded views. Torque values are provided in the parts lists.

You need to rebuild the carburetor. Go to m-and-d.com then parts diagram then illustrated parts online then parts look up then under select OEM select Homelite then do as instructed. You should find the parts you need and hopefully the parts breakdown for the carb. this will help you in the rebuild. If it does not have the parts breakdown for the carb. find what mfg and model carb. it is then go to that site for breakdown.

Hello:

Have you Removed the Muffler and Checked the Exhaust Port and Muffler for Carbin Restriction?
Remove the Muffler and Start the Unit. If the Operates Correctly, then the Spark Arrestor Screen is Clogged and the Muffler/Screen Requires Replacing.
Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Not Restricted Also.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck

Respectfully

John

SOURCE: HB-180 Leaf blower won't start

if its flooded then it surly wont fire,not a 2-stroke. are you over priming or is there a malfunction. remove plug,put plug not a tester in the end of lead,ground, and pull. spark should be purple and consistent. if red/yellow/intermitent. change he plug. if the engine is only flodding on its own then the needle and seat could be stuck open in the carb, gas tank vent in fuel cap plugged and building tank pressure, or fuel mixed too rich. let me know what you find

SOURCE: Could you tell me what the fuel to oil ratio is

40:1 is the ratio. One of those little 2-cycle oil bottles poured into one gallon of gas will give you this ratio.

Homelite ut-08068-r leaf blower leaking fuel


If we are talking about a hand held leaf blower. The fuel leaking from the carb is likely caused by a stiff metering diaghram holding the needle open. Rebuild your carb ( I suggest also replacing the fuel lines and primer bulb while you are at it) and double check the lever adjustment.
