Question: Air Filter Mesh

I've been advised that model # ry08554 does not use an air filter but uses a filter screen, if so is this part (638179001) the correct part?

Hello densapp,

The part number for the air filter that Ryobi uses on this model is, 518623001. It attaches to the carburetor.

Hope this helps,

Question: Primer Bulb

I need a primer bulb for ry 08554 blower, where can I find the part number to order if it is available?
MikeD
Question: Yellow Lever

MikeD

I also had the yellow lever break. I'm trying to epoxy it now. I noticed I can turn it and get the choke closed with a pair of pliers, then I can get the unit started, and when I touch the throttle, the choke comes off like normal.

If the epoxy fix doesn't work, I'll buy another brand of blower before I keep putting money into this one. It's never been stellar.

I bought this unit reconditioned. From the start, the fuel cap leaked (like someone else commented here), but a local shop repaired it under warranty. I also had the primer bulb crack, but I was able to find another one on ereplacementparts.

It's funny I can buy a primer bulb, but not the little yellow lever

Hi Mike,

Unfortunately you do have to purchase the entire carburetor to get the lever in question. You might try a repair shop in your area that repairs Ryobi gas products. They might have what you are looking for from an old carb.

Question: Only Runs With Chock On

Bob

Hi, my Ryobi ry08554 blower will only only run with the choke full on. As soon as chock is off it stalls. Any suggestions?
Thank you

my ryobi 8554 blower does the same thing. it will start easely but will not run if you try to take the choke off. if you figured it out bob ,please help me out. i tried a new carburetor but it did not make any differance
Patrick
Question: Engine Will Not Start

Patrick

I replaced the carburetor and the engine still does not run. Initially the only way it would run was full throttle. Could this be a reed valve problem and where are the reed valves located on this motor? there is spark at the plug
Jim
Question: Carb Setting

Jim

I purchased my blower/vac new and since I first purchased it, it only runs at full choke (lever in the start position) or just slightly tweaked toward the run position. Any use of the throttle kills the motor as does moving the lever to the RUN position.

Question: Ry08854 Primer Bulb

Can I get just the primer bulb or do I need to replace the whole carburetor? I didn't see any on the parts list.

Question: Air Filter

Is there an air filter on this blower?
Mark

Hi Phil,

Look at item #56 on page B of the parts diagram. There is a mesh screen on this part over the air intake. According to Ryobi, the mesh is the filter. I talked with a representative at Ryobi tech support and she couldn't believe that the screen was supposed to be the air filter as well. She told me that on her own trimmer she purchases a foam filter from another brand and then cuts it to fit in the opening over the Ryobi filter.

If you wanted to try a similar fix I would suggest the following filter from Shindaiwa...

Question: Full Speed

My ry08554 starts right up and runs great to about three- quarters throttle then dies. Is it carburetor adjustment and if so the adjustment screws are odd looking. Where would I get the tool if this is the problem? Thanks for any info.

Hi Bob,

Your machine has an "EPA" carburetor. Starting in 1997 The EPA placed requirements on how clean small engines are required to burn. As part of this restriction the carburetors are set at the factory. The carb then either has the adjustment ports capped or they use special adjustment screws so that the carb can only be adjusted by a tech trained in compliance with the EPA directives. The manufacture offers the special carb adjustment tools their authorized repair shops but not to the general public. The manufacture is liable to ensure that the equipment they sell complies with the EPA directive and therefore will typically not offer the adjustment tools for sale to the general public. You can learn more about the EPA emissions requirements for small engines at the following link...

http://www.epa.gov/otaq/consumer/f98025a.pdf

Before you adjust the carburetor you should determine why it needs adjustment first. A carb should only need adjustment when it is new and needs to be adjusted for altitude or after a carburetor rebuild has been performed. If a piece of equipment has been working fine and then starts acting up there will be more repair issues than a simple carb adjustment. The carburetor itself will not simply go out of adjustment. You will want to look at things like a tune up, a clogged carburetor, a plugged exhaust system, ignition problems, etc. Adjusting a carburetor requires some knowledge and experience with small engines. You can easily overheat and seize the engine if you are not familiar with the proper procedures. It is also a good idea to use an engine tachometer to be sure that you make the correct adjustments.

I hope this helps with the repair of your small engine!

Question: Choke Lever

I also need a replacement part for the yellow plastic choke lever for the Ryobi RY08554. It broke very easily and it is not listed in your parts.

Hi Cathy,

Ryobi only offers the choke lever as part of the carburetor. It is not available separately. The carburetor is part #308054014 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com .

Good luck with your repair!

Do you have a part # for the plastic yellow choke lever & an air filter for the ry08554 ?

Hi Jim,

Ryobi only offers the choke lever as part of the carburetor. It is not available separately. The carburetor is part #308054014 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com . The RY08554 trimmer does not use a traditional foam or felt filter. The screen over the intake is the only filtration for the trimmer. I had a Ryobi tech support representative tell me that on their personal trimmer they use a foam filter from another brand of trimmer and then cut it to fit in the intake.

Good luck with your repair!

Question: Hardware

George

I have the RYO8554 Blower . The 4 screws (B15) that screw the housing onto the crankcase. The parts B14, B16, B17, B18 . Should there be 4 of each per assembly?
Like other comments I have seen, there are a lot of negative feelings (mine included) about not being able to just get a replacement switch without having to order the carb also. I would think that a large company like Ryobi would make a minor part like this switch (alone) available to their customers rather than lose that customer to another manufacturer. I have had my blower/vac less than two years and it has never operated really well. I own at least a dozen Ryobi bench top or hand power tools but something like this just irritates the heck out of me and I hesitate to buy another Ryobi tool. Own up Ryobi---make the switch available by itself.
I've had the Ryobi RY08554 for less than a year and same issue with the yellow choke lever. Poorly constructed and disappointed it cannot be replaced alone. The plastic covering holding the foam filter (Yes my blower vac does have a wire screen and a foam filter)is also broken.
I have been a Ryobi user for many years and have always been impressed with the quality of the products. However, this does not extend to the RY08554 blower. To put it bluntly, this product "blows." From right out of the box the fuel cap never did seal, no matter how firmly I tightened it. I was worried about cracking the housing, since most everything is plastic on this machine. I'm always getting fuel on my clothing and on my hands unless I'm extremely careful not to let the housing get out of level - pretty difficult when you're trying to use the blower for what it's intended to do. I could have lived with this problem, but then yesterday the "start-run" yellow lever on the carburetor broke. I can see from the repair question forum that I'm not the first to experience this problem. I was amazed and upset that Ryobi's "solution" to this problem is to sell me the entire carburetor because they don't sell the faulty switch separately. So I'm supposed to spend another $45 or $50 (part plus tax/shipping) to repair an $80 blower that I've used maybe 3 or 4 times? Unbelievable! This will make me think twice before I'll purchase another Ryobi product. I thought I would be as happy with this blower as I have been with my Ryobi weedeater, mantis tiller, and snowblower. The blower's not even in the same galaxy. Huge disappointment.
