Question about Echo 30.1CC Chainsaw With a 14 In.bar and Chain

1 Answer

I have a Echo chainsaw model 452Vl and am not able to start it.

I have removed the carb and looked it over and checked over the fuel line but have found no problem areas there. Does this model have a fuel filter, if yes, where? It will only start if I put carb starting fluid down the carb. Does it need to be cleaned or what? Please advise.

Hi, It does have a filter of sorts but is on the pickup inside the tank and should not need changed. Drain the fuel mixture and check all of the plastic lines and primer bulb for cracks or kinks. Put in a fresh fuel mixture that has not been sitting, (They don't run on old mix) and try starting again. The thought process is that if it starts on the starting fluid it can only be two things, old fuel or no fuel. If the fuel change doesn't work it is probably not getting fuel thru the carb, these oil mixes gum up rather quickly and if it sat for awhile with fuel in it it may need the carb cleaned. Good Luck to you, hope this Fixsya!

I have a psa 225 echo weed eater. The engine readily starts but will only rev up using the choke lever back and forth. No power. What's my problem?


Carb or filter
. replace fuel filter in tank while checking both pickup and return fuel lines.
remove carb and disassemble cleaning all parts with carb cleaner and some soft air blow . look for small screen its round and about 1/4 round in carb these are so small that the gas that's available gells and plugs the openings . try to use non-ethonal high octane gas and use echo 2cycle oil .

Echo Cs-400 chainsaw. Standing the carb up with the sliver vent on top which fuel line goes to the 90° inlet on the bottom and which line from the primer bulb to the carb?


The lengths of the line and,or the bends in the line . I would say the line from the bulb would go the carb since it is used to prime or,choke the carb.

Yamaha xt600e 1991 will not rev over 3000 rpm


This can be for a few reasons such as air intake restrictions poor or dirty fuel ,cabs blocked or some electrical problem My starting place would be fuel , empty your fuel tank and drain your cabs check any fuel filters , if fuel in your tank is muddy looking or there or there is excessive rust build up in your tank this can also contaminate your carbies causing blockages as well as making the fuel a poor quality and hard to be combusted properly resulting in poor revving ability , if the fuel checks out ok you still need to consider blockages in the carbs so start off with a good carb cleaner and spray it into the fuel line intakes on all carbs and air intake areas as well as removing the float chamber covers on the bottom of your carbs and spraying everywhere with carb cleaner replacing the fuel filter or installing one is a good idea . the air intake filter needs to be checked and cleaned making sure its in good condition if not replace it , Next you will need to remove and clean your spark plugs and inspect them for discoloration as in spark plugs that are black and sooty looking means the fuel is not getting burnt sufficiently and is called to rich or if the plugs show a white pale coloration this can mean lack of fuel is been delivered and is called to lean, if plugs are in a poor condition replace them . These jobs can be easy done by your self and can fix many problems but if you have tried these methods or found them to difficult and nothing has improved its time to get some expert to find out and possibly fix your bike ( bike shop machanic )

ECHO 452VL NOT OILING CHAIN


Sounds like you have a blocked oil pump. With the flow regulator fully open and no cage filter on the end of the oil intake hose its probably pulled through dirt and blocked the pump.

Murray mower starts with choke but dies


most likely your main jet in the carb is clogged, water in fuel, or a plugged fuel line, filter, or plugged in the tank where the fuel line connects. it is common to have a plug where the fuel line exits the fuel tank if there is a 90 degree turn in the fitting, debris may build up in the 90 degree area. check by replacing old fuel with new, then pull fuel line from carb and fuel should flow freely, look for a blocked fuel line if it does not flow. it it does flow, pinch off fuel line then remove the float bowl to drain remaining gas and give acess to the main jet. the main jet is located in the side or bottom of the lowest protruding area into the float bowl. run a thin wire like a guitar string thru the small jet hole to unplug, then squirt a little wd-40 thru jet hole to visually check flow. next, unpinch fuel line and fuel should flow from carb into float bowl area. then check to make sure the fuel stops flowing when the float is gently lifted to the top of its travel. if problem in this area, remove float pin, float, and needle valve and check for blockage in the needle valve seat. clean out with wd-40 and reassemble, add fresh gas and give it a try!

My mower will start but won't stay running


I am going to respond 2 times to this post. The first reply will be generic things to check.
First off check the oil level and make sure it is serviced to full.
If your having a lack of fuel (runing lean) you will need to check fuel flow at the carb fuel mainfold. It should fill a spray paint can lid in less than 10 seconds but teting flow rated of the main fuel line. If you have poor flow here... you need to check the fuel filter and the fuel tank outlet port for obstructions.

Good Fuel flow still shutting off.... remove the carb float bow and clean the debris from the bow' and the treaded area where the fuel solenoid mounts Additionally you will have to again remove the main fuel line and spray carb cleaner in the float needle area to flush out any debris through the fuel hose connection.

For the second response I need to know which engine is installed on your mower by MODEL number if you can locate it. (there are 3 engines) At least try to find the engine model number. If you can not locate it Brand and HP of the engine (I assume 22 hp) Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
