ECHO blower won't pull

It ran fine. packed it in the back of the truck and travelled. Went to run it and the it won't I pulled the side cover off and checked the cord. It is fine. Nothing will turn. What would cause it to lock up like this and how can I fix it? And i always use mixed fuel in it. I use the same fuel for my string trimmer and chain saws.

Hello I have an echo pb-500T, my cord won't pull.


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.

ECHO PB251 BLOWER. Noticed fuel running out of muffler. Cleaned spark screen, installed new airfilter, fuel vent, fuel filter. Ran unit - engine quit while at full rpms - will not start. Clicking noise...


Your flywheel has come loose on enj., this throws the timing off so it is firing at all different times except for when it's supposed to. therefore raw fuel is running right through the cylinder and out exhaust, If you are lucky you won't have to replace the 60.00 flywheel! remove fan side of case,and remove blower wheel, then flywheel nut then flywheel, it has a built in key in it, usually this is wasted from coming loose, make sure you use loctite and an impact to tighten flywheel nut back after you repair/replace flywheel.

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.

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.

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...

Runs fine &then suddenly stops


IN the tank there is a intake tube on the bottem of that tube is a tiny filter. you can reach in and pull it out the tank enough to work on it.
It is clogged pull it off let it dry for a day and then blow it clean fron the gas line side OUT.

or echo sells tune up kits for 10 bucks at home depot. -Jeff Anchorage Small Engine.
