    Check the fuel filter. Check for a loose or cracked fuel line. Make sure the primer button is not cracked. Install fresh fuel. If that doesn't do it it's most likely the carb. I wouldn't put much money into that blower. You may be time and frustration ahead to buy a new one.

    Then go to Lowe's and buy another $69.00 Weed Eater blower. For a home owner it should last 2 to 3 years.
