Question about Echo 2-Cycle 28.1 cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer SRM-280UC
If it doesn't turn over when you pull the rope it could be in the starter assembly or the flywheel where the starter pawls engage it. If it turns over then you need to check for fuel, spark, air and compression.

on the head there is a u shape slot on the side. turn it until you can slide a small screw driver in it to lock the head. then loosen the nut on the bottom i do believe it is a left-handed

If this is a solid state ignition ( black box mounted right next to the fly wheel)check for rust on fly wheel and coil/ignition.Sand with light grit sand paper if nessesary. Make sure to reistall with the same gap between the two parts.note the gap at this point could also be wrong.Also check to see if the clip inside the boot where the spark plug conects is not bent and that it is conecting properly. If this is a points ignition system then its basicaly the same steps.Clean contact pionts check plug boot for good contact. Or could be bad coil.Be sure you are using a plug with the propor heat range.

There are an array of things that could be wrong, but most likely this is a carburetion problem.
For starters, make sure the fuel lines are soft and there are no cracks or pinholes in them. They tend to break down after time. I don't know the age of this machine, but a gasket and diaghragm kit may bring it back to normal operation. The parts in this little kit are easy to install and not very expensive. Another issue of note is there is a very fine mesh screen inside the fuel pump chamber of the carburetor that traps dirt and foreign particles. It is easy to access and clean, once you have the pump cover off. The internal parts of the carburetor need to be soft and pliable like the fuel lines to operate correctly. They dry out after time and need replacing. All these little carbs have this issue at some point in their usage. If you remove the carb, gaskets and diaghragms, try spraying all the holes with carb cleaner aerosol spray after cleaning the fine mesh screen. If a good cleaning doesn't help, then you probably need the gasket and diaghragm kit for that carburetor.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:
You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris.(Should be able to see daylight through it.)
Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.
If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.
If you need further assistance, just let me know.
