I was using my leaf blower to blow off a light dusting of snow off the sidewalk and driveway. It ran great for about 20 minutes and then stopped cold. I changed batteries and it ran for about 20 seconds and stopped. I changed to another set and it did the same thing. I kept trying to get it to run and it would run for about 20 seconds and then stop. It is less than a year old. Help? and

Official Response
Snow getting sucked into the blower has caused static electricity buildup issues (and the odd shock to the hand). It’s possible that static could harm the electronics, I guess.
