Leaf blower stopped working suddenly while clearing yard of leaves. Used multiple batteries during the yard work session. Have done this many times over the time I have owned the blower. Have owned the blower for 3 yrs. I have multiple batteries and have tried 2 other batteries and still no success at restarting the blower.

Contact customer service. They should be able to swap you for another one if your still in warranty

Went back to Home Depot here in Maryland, where I bought it. Died totally at one week shy of 2 years of use. They put me in touch with EGO customer service. I updated my personal info for them ane they told me thai I'd receive my new blower in 5-10 days. Woo hoo! I think it's a new version Nd it's 2.5 Ah, so I hope my high speed charger aorks with it. Also bope the 2.0 batteries work with it as well. Good luv
Ck to you. It is one fantastic machine.

FYI They are just sending you a blower not a battery.

Also, all Ego tools, batteries and chargers are compatible. No worries about new vs old Ego stuff. :-)

Ego gave me the run around. I called Customer Service three times in past months to complain that the blower power was sometimes weak or expiring quicker than usual; they offered nothing. When the blower finally died at 5years one month and they told me the warranty had expired.

No troubleshooting advice or replacement. Big hunk of expensive plastic going to the landfill!

When it’s working, the blower is great, but I was VERY disappointed by the unreliability of this $199 product from Home Depot. Maybe it’s the bad switch as mentioned by another post.

That does not sound like Ego customer service. 

What model blower do you have ?
