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.

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.

Echo shred n vac starts,idles, runs to about half power then bogs


Check the grommet that sits on top of tank where lines from go carb. Grommet may be rotten and crack. Try that. Have you ever replace the carb repair kit? The diaphram may be torn, defoam or have holes in them. Carb kit cost arount $10, but don't mess with the welch plug or screen in carb.

I have an etco chainsaw that will only start on the choke and stops almost immediately. The carb has been cleaned and a new diaphram fitted. A new fuel filter has also been fitted and spark plug. The spark...


Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
- aluminum or silver - piston/cylinder scored
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Compression - 125 to 150 psi

3) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated

Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
ChainSaws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks

*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

Please double check the gasekts/diaphragms for proper installation

I can start my echo edger but as soon as I give it a little gas it stalls. I already changed the fuel pump. any ideas????


Check spark arrestor screen inside the muffler. If it is clogged with carbon you can clean it with a stiff bristled brush. Also, check fuel lines for pin-hole leaks or cracks that are masked in the bends of the fuel hoses. Richen the air/fuel ratio SLIGHTLY if those previous things check good.

Echo 452VL chainsaw won't start


yes it does.the filter is in the fuel tank on the end of fuel line.if it isn't the fuel line needs to be replaced and a new filter installed.there is most likely some of the fuel line in side the carb. there is a small filter inside and it usualy collects the broken fuel line there. take the carb apart oppiset of the diaphram.usualy it's the side with only one screw.carefully blow the **** from it and the saw will get fuel again and start
