  • ebz8000 no start

    My redmax backpack blower wont start. I cleaned the air filter and tried without. I cleaned the muffler and tried without.

    I have spark and good compression. The carb was cleaned. The plug looks dry. tried gas down the plug hole. Nada...

    Did you check to see if its priming?
    Check the fuel filter?
    did you change out the gas?
    how is it pulling over the 8k are know for killing bearing

      I see the gas moving when I prime it.

      The gas is new. I only use this blower in the spring and fall. It sat dry since April. I pulled it out for a clean up yesterday.

      Filter was next on my list. I didnt have a can to dump it nearby.

      It pulls nice. Sounds like its ready to go. It just wont fire.

      How would I check the bearing?

        sounds like carb problem I would try a LITTLE starting fluid
        I just had a problem with my echo "bad gas" very hard to start and would not stay running changed out fuel, fuel filter, plug, air filter with little improvement so I added Marvel Mystery Oil and now its running better. Don't know if that was it but its working for me

          I would recommend NO-STARTING FLUID use carb cleaner, it will not damage the unit. Sorry it has been a few weeks since I have been on as my competitors are going out of business and I have been busy. I agree you likely need to clean your carb.

            Cleaned the carb again still no start. I took off a little chamber on the side of the piston and watched when I tried to start. I only seen detonation on maybe 2 out of 10 pulls.

              This might be completely stupid but can it be a kill switch issue? Like a loose wire or something? Something that's keeping it on the off position when it looks like it's on? Shot in the dark i know but maybe.

                I would say check the coil, I do not have the manual in front of me but the easy way is to check voltage but you would likely not have the tester for that at home... I will see what I can do if I get a chance. I have been really busy lately, I am starting to dread spring.

                  I think it is the coil. Last spring I would get no spark after about a hour of use. After about ten minutes it would run fine. I heard before thats a sign of a bad coil.

                  Now I can see some exhaust smoke coming out of the muffler when I pull it. I just have no way of knowing if theres enough spark to keep it going. If I cant figure it out its headed to the dealer. I hate to admit defeat.

                  The coils run about 100 bucks?

                    If you pull the plug out and ground it with the wire attached, you should be able to see the spark. If you can't see it at all or can barely see it, maybe try cleaning the gap first or replacing the spark plug?

                      Depends on the full model number but that should be in the ball park.

                        that test is not even accurate enough to make any judgement from it is not even easy to see that it has a spark let alone the color of the spark to give you a hint of heat range.

                          thats pretty much what I said. Just seeing spark does not mean its not a problem. That eliminates safety switches from the equation.

                          I dropped it off at the dealer. This is a first for me. I have fixed everything up to this point.

                          I didnt ask the time frame but I noticed on my receipt the estimated return was 2 weeks. WTF! I cant wait 2 weeks for my biggest backpack in clean up season. Do dealers normally take this long or is just a way to cover them if they have to order parts and what not?

                            Yeah Sect, I've been in the same boat with a new stihl br600 I bought last season. Early in the summer it just sheet the bed after only being used last fall and this spring. Turns out they need to replace the block. It was all covered under warranty but took about 3 weeks to get back. It was also my first time having to bring something to the dealer and although it wasn't a big deal at the time I would be pissed if I had to wait that long during the fall season.

                            Good luck man, hope you get it back sooner then later.

                              it can depend on the dealer really, it could be that they are act 2 weeks out but it could also be that they can get up to 2 weeks out. For example I normally see 80 units a day in march where I can see 1 to 2 units a day the week of 4th of july. so my wait time varies on time of year.
