After using few times, backpack blower LB6000 stopped working. I made sure the battery is fully charged and tried again today. Nothing.

If it's new, the easiest thing to do is exchange it for a replacement at Home Depot, which has a 90-day return period, or a full year if you bought it with a Home Depot credit card.

Don't lose faith. The backpack blower has been very reliable for folks here who have them!

I agree with Ken about the reliability of the backpack blower though I do not like its ergonomics. 

Another thing you can do which is what I did when my old 480 unit quit a while back is call EGO customer service at 1-855-346-5656.  If you call, it is easiest to get a hold of them in the morning when the line of people is not long or not there at all.  Someone confirm whether or not support.egopowerplus.com is still an avenue to contact EGO customer service by e-mail, I noticed that that is no longer listed on the contact us page of egopowerplus.com.
