Cord won't pull out

I didn't realize that the gas/oil wasn't mixed and blew leaves until it cut out. Now the cord won't pull out for me to restart the blower (after I mixed the oil/gas). what do I do?

Take out the spark plug and fill the hole with 30 weight oil. Let it sit for a couple days then take the cover off and turn the nut in both directions to try and work the pistons free. If you can free it up, empty remaining oil, put in mixed gas and it should start. It will smoke heavily for a few minutes.

This worked for me when my son used straight gas and seized it. Good luck!

Hi Shaun77b,

Regretfully if you didn't use a gas/oil mix the motor is probably seized. The internal parts on a 2 cycle motor are lubricated by the oil in the gas. It may keep running without oil but once it shuts off- its done.


Sorry, Phil

I put reg gas in it & it ran rthen quit now the cord will not pull


Could have scored the rings, broken ring, or just cooked the piston to the sleeve, maybe melted the connecting rod to crank, damaged needle bearings. Most likely needs to be taken apart.

Leaf blower not pulling fuel into carbeurator


Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.May need to replace carburetor.

Troy-bilt gas blower/vac stopped and pull cord won't come out


NOPE You can buy new cheaper than have this one repaired, Also I don't recommend using these for a vac on leaves. Leaves are very very dirty and these blower vacs usually dont last long when used as a vac. The seize problem was from an improper fuel mix. THE next one you getone use a little more oil, than says in the owners manual. Like if it says 50/1<<>> mix 40/1 more oil will just foul the plug and oil the muffler,but you will not have a seizure problem. I have never had a problem with a 40/1 mix .

It wont start


First, make sure that the gas mixture is correct (gas and oil mixed in the right proportion). Next, press the primer bulb 3-4 times, turn the choke lever on to Full Choke, and pull the starter cord until the engine seems like to wants to start, but dies. Next, switch the choke lever to Half Choke and start the gas trimmer, giving it gas by pulling on the trigger. Once it has warmed up fully, you may be able to reduce the Half Choke to No Choke, although my 20+ years of experience with dozens and dozens of models tells me that many trimmers run better, although smoking slightly, when you keep them at Half Choke. One last tip, when pulling the cord, try pushing the trimmer away from you with the opposite hand at the exact same time that you are pulling the starter cord--the equal and opposite push-pull technique may sound like something from karate (and it is, in a way), but it is really helpful when trying to start trimmers. Best of luck, Bill

PS: Check you owner's manual (at home or online) for the proper gas/oil mixture. Empty any old gas out and replace the spark plug, if required.

I have a Echo PB 2601 made a loud bang then stoped working.


Sounds like it has seized up. If the pull cord won't pull then the motor is locked up. Did you run gas/oil mix for the fuel its a 2 cycle motor...

Does not start


any 2 cycle oil is good. Use a 40:1 mix to start with if it smokes then cut it back to 32:1 but its better to have more oil then not enough but start with 40:1
