View Full Version : Dirty gas in blower, trimmer

04-28-2007, 10:28 AM
I had a blower and trimmer crap out yesterday. The blower was working fine, then there was a couple 'pffft' sounds (like popping) then it quit.
Then the trimmer was having a heck of a time starting, and when it would, quit a few seconds later.

Looks like someone touched the gas can nozzle with sandy gloves. They are both Stihl products. Is there a way to purge them clean, or a better way?

First drain out the fuel cell and change out the fuel filter. If that doesn't help then tear the carb apart, spray it with brake cleaner, blow out with compressed air and reassemble.
