Customer Question

My EB508RT blower will start and idle but when you accelerate it dies. Air filter is spotless. That's all I've checked. I'm not a good mechanic but capable. Just bought it new 3/5/14.

HI, my name is***** will be assisting you.

The first things that I would check are the fuel lines and fuel filter to be certain that the lines aren't cracked or kinked and the fuel filter inside the tank is clean. If you see no problems there then I would try to adjust the high speed carburetor screw out about an 1/8 of a turn and see if that doesn't fix the problem.

I'll try that but may be a couple of days before I can.
