Remove the impeller and check for loose motor mount screws. With the impeller off and the spark plug removed and the pull start functioning properly; if it still wont pull then its likely internal and due to be replaced.

SOURCE: 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...

SOURCE: pull cord came undone

sounds like the spring might have broken. Sometimes they are a pain to rewind. Might want to see about a new pull assembly. But first take off the shroud to see if the little pieces of metal or plastic that engages the assembly on top of the fly wheel are ok. If so untie the cord to the hand hold and remove rope from the pulley inside. Then turn the pulley a couple of times and let it go(but watch your fingers). If it spins pretty fast then turn it again till you get some tension and I put a screwdriver through the fins so it doesn't unwind (but line up the hole where the line goes through first) then put the line through the holes and tie a knot. Then pull out the screwdriver and slowly let the line rewind. If it rewinds reassemble and it should work fine for you.

Let me know if this helped.

Replace pull cord

Echo is one of the easiest pull cords to fix, remove the screws on the rewind and take off the motor and flip it over and pull old rope out and put new rope in wind the spring the correct way so when you pull rope it tightens spring so it will wind back up when let go, not winding too tight !

How do I remove a flywheel from an echo pb-413t? I bought a flywheel puller but it still won't budge?

It was pretty hard to get a flywheel puller on there wasnt it?
Use a brass hammer and a large flathead screwdriver. being carefull not to pry on anything but the crankcase and flywheel insert the screwdriver under the flywheel. With the hammer tap on the short cooling fins (These are tougher than the longer ones- you dont want to break off any fins) while prying up on the flywheel with the screwdriver. A few taps and it should pop loose. It doesnt require a lot of force but you need to be decisive with your blows.

I have an Echo PB-500T blower that won't throttle up. I bought this blower new about 3 months ago. Before this blower I had an exact same blower that gave me the same problem. I returned that blower...

Remove the in tank fuel filter and take it apart, the felt Echo uses on the filter clogs quickly. There is still a mesh screen filter in the assembly so make sure you put it all back together and reinstall the fuel filter into the tank.

ECHO PB-500T - Stopped running and added gas fuel mix. Quit running again with full tank and now flywheel is stuck and I can't pull to start it. What is the problem?

My $350 Echo PB-500T seized up. I almost cried.

The solution was to drain the fuel tank.

  • Refill fuel tank with an 2-cycle Oli/gas mixture.

  • 40:1 =3.2 oz to one-gallon gas, do not use Alcohol base gas.

  • Remove the spark plug.

  • Pour approximate 1/8 oz 2-cycle Oli into the spark plug hole.

  • Remove the pull cord assembly (4-bolts)

  • This reviled the crank shaft-Pull cord bracket

  • I use a large monkey wrench to turn the shaft (CW) Clock-wise.

  • Complete approximate 20 revolutions.

  • Reassemble, but don't install the spark plug yet.

  • Complete approximate 20 more revolutions

    by pulling the pull cord.

  • Use q-tips to swab the top of the piston, as much as possible.

  • Install the spark-plug and crank, it will smoke for amount 7-10 minutes
