Husqvarna 150BT

jjgreeneNovember 26, 2013

I have a Husqvarna 150BT Backpack blower. Has run perfectly until yesterday. It just quit while in use, as if it was turned off. No faltering, as if running out of gas or starving for air, etc. I pulled the plug and it is ok. I took apart the handle and checked the kill switch and it is operating correctly (also the throttle cable is working correctly). Didn't want to tear it down any farther until I researched more. Any ideas?

Fire/Fuel/Compression is the formula to run. Quick test all for signs they are in good conditions

1. Fire: Is the plug firing grounded to cyl metal vs plastic?
2. Have you primed cyl or carb with about ý tsp of the pre mix?
3. Can you hold the pistionâÂÂs compression in the plugâÂÂs hole with your thumb?

History: 1. Approx years/hrs, quality = low end, mid grade or commercial grade.
2. Past storage and yearly services.
3. I learned that some blowers are not worth your time related to repairs.
