Echo only runs wide open


Your question isn't detail enough such as.

Q: It starts up wide open with the trigger depress fully but when I release the trigger it dies.

A: The carburetor idle jet (Picture A item #27) is dirty/plugged. the carburetor needs to be taken apart and cleaned or it just needs to be turned out a bit to flow fuel or the idle screw that sets the idle speed (Picture B) on the carburetor need to be screwed in to open the flap a bit more. Your carburetor may not be like either of these two carburetors but close enough. If you need to figure out which carburetor you have to locate the idle jet look search for picture of your carburetor and that tells all such as in picture A.

Another couple things. In picture B you see the spring on the throttle shaft that closes the flap to idle. If that area is really dirty the flap could be stuck wide open. Make sure the it is free to open and close. If the chainsaw has had a lot of use the engine could be wore to the point at idle the piston isn't making enough compression for the engine to stay running even if you turn the idle speed screw (Picture B) in as far as you can.

Troy-Bilt Hand-Held Blower dies when warm and throttle wide open


You reported that most of the items I would've suggested, you have checked...
Good job.
A couple more things:
  • Replace fuel filter, it's in the gas tank
  • Check and clean the Spark Arrestor screen at muffler, when they plug up, it's a major restriction to exhaust gas flow
  • And check and adjust High/Low screws at carburetor, video attached.
  • And clean or install rebuild kit for carburetor
Good luck...

Why does my ATV bog down and die when I keep the throttle wide open?


If you are lucky, you might just need new fuel filter and the fuel bowl cleaned out, and maybe new air filter. If not so lucky you need carburetor rebuilt. Backfire is usaully caused by engine running too lean ( too much air for the amount of fuel present). Fuel bowls get gunk in them and the fuel needles and fuel jets get varnished up. The accelerator pump gets worn out gaskets and/or bellows and doesn't give the right amount of fuel mist when you accelerate.

Full Choke is indicative of a motor starved for fuel

Bike wont start when I spray with ether it will run but at high speed wide open like their no throttle


When spraying with ether, if it runs for about 10-20 seconds and dies, the carb idle circuits are plugged up.

Maxim tiller won't run


Try better quality gas. I had the same problem. Ethanol too high in lower grade gas. Buy better grade or ethanol free. Mine works fine with better gas.
