SOURCE: How can I remove Echo 230 SRM trimmer head?

Remove the top off the string housing and remove the nut in the center.

Replace the top, as if you have finished loading string, Lock it in place as you normally do and the turn the entire housing pulling up at the same time. Spring and the white mechanism will pop out and then all you have to do is lift the string housing base off the trimmer head. Note it will take you a few tries but once it comes off you will see how easy it is to remove. I was amazed. Got my info from a sales person at Home Depot.

SOURCE: How to remove trimmer head from Echo 230 SRM?

I know I'm replying to a old post, but this might help others. My Echo GT225 might be similiar. Once u are down to the thread bolt & the round shaft part that spins in ither direction, u need to thread back on the line spool, at lest the botton part of it to hold the thread bolt in place. Then start turn that rounded part that normally just spins, it will start to thread off, as you are thrreading it off you may have to also start threading the line spool part off as well at the same time. After that you will need the tool that takes off the C ring clamp thing that's underneath. I couldn't find any info on this online, I just kept on playing with it until I figured it out, UGH.

See section 24 of your manual here. It has the information you want for lubing the flexible drive shaft and the gear-drive housing (if your unit is so equipped). This is a manual for the SRM230S model.

Echo SRM-230 trimmer stalls when you give it more gas. Can get more RPM with choke, but still not enough to use. Trimmer only has 20 hours on it.

empty the fuel tank and refill with the correct oil/ fuel mixture as too much oil blocks the jets Machines do not like any e- mix fuels as the jets are not set for the mix.

My srm 230 locked up while running. Is this a common problem with echo?

If the engine has locked up, it is usually due to either overheating, or lack of lubrication. The SRM series of trimmers requires a 40:1 fuel mix. If you were not using 3.5 ounces of 2 cycle oil per gallon of fuel, then most likely the engine locked up due to a lack of lubrication. To determine the cause, remove the muffler from the engine and visually inspect the cylinder. If there is scoring and scratches on the muffler side, then it has overheated. If the scoring is on the carb side, then it is a lack of lubrication. Overheating is usually caused by a lean condition. That means too much air, and not enough fuel in the cylinder. A lean condition is frequently caused by the carb being out of adjustment. Most manufacturers recommend to rebuild/overhaul the carb every 50 hours for low level units and every 125 hours for mid-level units and every 300 hours for commercial units. The SRM230 would be considered a mid-level unit. See the emissions label on your unit to confirm. Echo is a very good quality manufacturer. In my shop, I perform maintenance on many Echo units. I typically recommend a tune up to my customers every other year. I hope this has been helpful.
