Is this a carburetor problem?




Stihl BG 55 blower:
The first symptom was that when it was running I was hearing a rattling sound. Then the blower started to sputter and cut off. When I tried to start it the flywheel was frozen. I took the cover off and found the cord of the flywheel was fine, and was able to make the Flywheel spin around. In other words, the flywheel isn’t slamming into a loose bolt or something.

Now when I try to start it, it will sputter, maybe run for a couple of seconds, and then conk out.

Does this sound like a carburetor problem?




Sounds like the engine seized. Wrong oil mix, cooling air path blocked, etc.
