Echo cs-300 chainsaw dies, how to get to gas vent?

My echo cs-300 will start & run fine for a few seconds,, then will die. I suspect the gas vent is plugged. I see the hose,, it goes way back into the motor. How do I get to the end? I suppose it has some sort of "duck bill" fitting.

Many thanks

    my best guess is that you may have a crack/hole in one of your fuel lines. this is very common in these seasonal-use tools. check this out and let me know how it goes. thanks.

SOURCE: Echo Blower dies out when full throttle

Find the fuel air mixture screw located by the carb and turn it so the moter starts to slow down then turn it so the blower runs smoothly this should keep it from dying out

SOURCE: Oil causing a problem?

Sound as if you have too much oil in the machine. Anytime you see white or lite gray smoke it is a sign of too much oil. Before you go through the routine of cleaning the oil out of every nook and cranny, try unscrewing the spark plug and clean it with a soft rag. It would have oil on it preventing the machine from starting. If this does work and there isn't a lot of oil in the gas tank now, just continue running the engine until the smoke clears. It won't hurt anything. But if cleaning the plug doesn't help you will have to empty all gas and oil from the gas tank, refill with new gas, squirt a little gum out carb cleaner in your carb to remove any oil there (this can be done when you try to restart the engine). Remember, when you are mowing grass if you are mowing on a hill) of any knd, make sure to turn the mower so the gas tank is on a higher level than the oil.

SOURCE: toro personal pace mower 5 yrs old only runs 10-15 seconds.

Was gasoline left in the tank during off season? Sometimes gas will break down and clog the jets in the carb. The priming bypasses the carb so when you put fuel in by pumping the bulb it runs, but dies becasue no additional fuel is coming through the carb after the primed fuel is burned off. Sounds like you need to clean the jets in the carb and in the future, use Stabil in gasoline to keep it from breaking down.

Give lots of details when describing the problem. When it started, was the choke on? If the choke is on, try starting it with the choke off, or starting it with the choke on and immediately taking the choke off when it starts, but keeping your fingers on the choke so you can turn it on again if the motor begins to die. As others have described, you have a problem with the mixture screws not being set right or the carb diaphram being damaged. Your owners manual may tell you what settings to start with on the mixture screws, or you may be able to google the model number and get the manual online if you don't have one. At this point you should have taken the carb apart to look for problems and blow out the air and fuel passages. You are making progress. At least you know that it is getting spark, and getting gas. I am not familiar with that model, but many of them have three settings for the choke, fully on, half on, and completely off. If you have that type, after it starts and dies, take out the plug and dry it, then try starting it with the choke half on. You will need to clear out the excess gas while you have the plug out.

Echo Chainsaw will not stay running? has been used a few times in the last 6 months!


Because the unit fires and runs for about 6-8 seconds the issue sounds to be fuel delivery problem. If you changed the fuel lines and checked the diaphragm, was the old lines bad? The carburetor could have sucked up some of the old fuel lines. You may need to change the carburetor.

Vintage Echo CS-302. Ran for years with zero problems. Until now. It starts and runs great for about 320 seconds. It will rev to max rpm, then it starts dying. wah, wah, wah,, shuts off. Repeat,same


check for problems in the carby--replace with a kit
check the filter on the end of the line in the tank-- they tend to block up
check for blocked exhaust--- carbined up inside
don't use E fuels as they will not operate on the E mix

Could be a fuel tank breather issue, when it starts to die slacken off the fuel cap, to see if it picks up again, if it does you need to replace the breather.

Check the fuel filter for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. If the cap vent was stalling the machine, removing it should allow about a minute or so of running before it quit again. Hope this helps!

Chainsaw starts fine, but dies mid cut?


Immediately after saw quits, while everything is still hot. Sometimes ignition modules quit working when hot.

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode.

Loosen fuel cap when it starts to die, If that fixes it it has a fuel vent problem.

If you did nothing to the carburetor adjustments, are using a fresh (3 months or less) fuel mix with the same oil/fuel ratio, and are operating at the same elevation there is a reason your saw is acting up.
It sounds as though there may be a fuel delivery problem. Check the fuel filter on the free end of a hose in fuel tank (manufacturer recommends an annual replacement). Check all fuel delivery lines especially at fittings and bends for cracks and holes. If those are good then the likely cause is internal parts of the carburetor. HTH

Try fresh fuel making sure oil and gas mixture is correct. Carb might need cleaning and adjustment.

Chainsaw runs out of gas.


From your description, it sounds like your carb is running too lean. Make sure the spark arrestor screen is free of carbon build-up and the air filter is in place. Warm the saw up. With the saw at idle, adjust the Low adjustment screw to slightly enrich the mixture. If you turn it to run the fastest possible when idling, it is too lean. When the Low setting is right, you will be able to increase the RPM without it dying. If the High setting is way too lean, it may also die when you open up the throttle. If you run the saw too lean, it willl overheat and sieze.
