    I have a similar problem. My Echo blower worked great for the first 3 years. Iit has not been running good for the last year. But it still works OK, but not great. I recently replaced the spark plug, air filter, and fuel filter. It still is not running good. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I have the same problem...Will try the seafoam and report back

    Blower starts and runs for awhile. However, it then loses power and eventually stops. It will start again, only to stop. It will start each time, but then cuts off

Try adding some "Seafoam" brand additive to the fuel mixture, that did the trick for mine. Must have been something in the carb and the Seafoam cleaned it out, runs just like the day it came out of the box

My echo backpack leaf blower pull start seems stuck it wont crank


Without getting to involved with it, did you always mix the correct fuel/oil ratio? or has someone else possibly put straight gas in it without oil? Another possibility is that the recoil could be broke. I would try to determine if the piston is seized in the cylinder. First remove the spark plug and try to pull the starter rope while listening closely for any strange noises from the engine. If it pulls fine then, replace the spark plug and try to start it again. If that doesn't work then I would remove the back cover and remove the muffler so you can look at the cylinder. You will need a phillips screwdriver and a set of metric allen wrenches. Hope that helps.

Have you drained all the old fuel mixture out? As well as taking out the spark plug and cleaning it should do the trick. I suggest giving it a little tuneup.

I have an older echo blower. just had it tuned up and adjusted and still running poorly. just wondering if it is my fuel mixture of 25;1


25:1 may be too rich a mixture. Clean your spark plug well. Then get some good synthetic 2 stroke oil and try a 32:1 mix or a 40:1 mixture. Here is a fuel mix chart for you use.

Hi, there is a wire screen in the exhaust outlet that blocks up with carbon deposits. It can be removed and cleaned with a wire brush. If blocked it will give you the problem you have and also make the blower quieter than it should be. Regards Phil.

My Echo Leaf Blower (PB-251) will not run at high speed. It is running to rich. Help please. Charlie


I've been fighting with an Echo PB-251 blower and an Echo SRM-225 string trimmer since near the end of last lawn season (this is the forth season I've had them). Along comes a thread on a firearms forum and lo and behold the answer to the problem is spelled out in terms even I can understand.

After reading that thread (which attributes the problem of the engine bogging down when throttle is activated to collapsing fuel lines) I was going to just replace the fuel lines, but I discovered that there are kits that include new fuel lines, rubber grommets, filters, clips and cap seals for about $13.00 each. Hell, the kit for the SRM-225 even provided a new primer bulb. Ten minutes after the UPS truck delivered them to my door I had both machines running like new again. If you've tried other things and it still hasn't worked I highly suggest you try this.

Blower not running at high rpm when full throttle. Cleaned air filter, gas vent, gas filter and spark plug. Blower is 3 years old. Have not bought any new replacement parts.


Try removing the muffler and look inside of the exaust port, you should be able to see the piston in the full opening of the port. If you can, try starting and running at wide open throttle. If it runs fine( a bit loud, so wear hering protection), then you have a plugged or partialy blocked muffler or spark arestor. Sometimes rich mixture can cause excessive carbon build up.

Hope this was helpfull.
