Repair and Maintenance for Leaf Blowers - North Attleboro

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 31, 2013

With all of the rain and heavy winds we have been having in North Attleboro lately your yard, driveway and walkways are probably full of debris. Your leaf blower is the perfect way to clean up after a wind and rain storm without using elbow grease. But, common for leaf blowers, they have a hard time starting up when you want them to. Leaf Blower repair is a specialty at J&J Small Engine Repair.

Whether you're using a back-pack model, electric or gas powered machine, leaf blowers make life in Massachusetts easier pretty much year round. Who has time to sweep when a leaf blower can move leaves and other debris with winds up approaching 180 mph. But, when your leaf blower doesn’t start, getting reacquainted with the broom is awful.

Bring in your leaf blower for engine repair and maintenance. Sometimes you need new gaskets, new air filters, fuel stabilizer, or new spark plugs. Regardless of the issue, we will do our best to fix your leaf blower. If you are a DIY-er, we sell the parts you need to fix your leaf blower or other small engine yourself.

J&J Small Engine Clinic, Inc. specializes in service and repair for all of you lawn and yard equipment and power tools.  Contact us for more information.

Keep Your Leaf Blower Running

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 06, 2012

Your leaf blower gets a big workout in the fall, but you often do need it for spring and summer too. But because of the heavy workout it gets, they often develop problems. The problems are from basic wear of or lack of maintenance. But the most common problem is that they just won’t stay running.

First and foremost, check the fuel source. It sounds simple, but does it have gas and does that gas have the right gas/oil mix?

You have to prime the blower before you start it. The primer bulb lets new fuel into the carburetor. If you don’t get a good amount of fuel into the primer bulb after about 3 to 5 pumps or if the fuel is foamy then you are drawing in air, either from a leak in the carburetor or the fuel lines. The primer bulb will not get hard but should be full of fuel.

Do you need help getting your leaf blower to stay running? Contact J & J Small Engine Clinic.
