Hello,sounds like a carb problem.You have fresh fuel right? Remove air filter and make sure the carb mounting screws are tight and the fuel filter is still connected to the fuel line inside the tank.
thanks..will do...any suggestion about carb cleaner product to flush thru gas line if the above does not work?
It is also posible the carb could use an adjustment.Lokk at the left side of the carb,there should be two screws and they might have a red and a white plastic cap on them,look at it and let me know.
will do and get back; incidentally does Homelite or anyone publish any kind of repair manual for this small gas blower?
I'm looking for manuals now
Do you have the operators manual and parts?
What is the model number? UT-xxxxx
can not find operator manual; have no parts
Can you find the UT number off the sticker?
I found a parts break down so far,here'a a link Ut08520
If there are two adjustment screws pry the cap off the one closest to the engine (low speed) and open it a hair.
