Question about Echo Garden

Open Question

Echo GT1000 / GT2000, are the shafts interchangeable?

I have 2 echos. A GT1000 I can not start, something with the choke positioning, and a GT2000 that starts perfectly, but when applying the throttle the head does not accelerate and spin faster, it stays slow. Can I take the shaft from the GT1000 and use it in the GT2000?

SOURCE: I have an echo mfg'd Echo GT2000 string trimmer

could be but lets try some other things first
On the carb. you have a primer bulb have you pushed that several times and is there gas in the bulb itself?
Are all of your fuel lines intact and not broken or brittle including the primer bulb?
Are you using fresh fuel mixture?
Be sure your stop and run switch is in the run position.
find your air filter and remove the filter itself
then you will be looking at the inlet side of the carb.opening and a orange choke shutter
Take a thimbles full of mixed fuel and pour directly into the carb opening with the choke off( turn trimmer on its side to do this)
now with everything (except for the filter) set to run try to start your trimmer 4 or 5 pulls
does it try to run? runs and shuts off? if so then you have carb. issues
which you can either replace or rebuild
sometimes if you do not want to tackle it yourself then it is less time consuming to replace it
but not cheaper.

hope this helps you some

SOURCE: difficulty staying running need to apply choke.

Normally when you have to apply the choke on a machine it means that the carb has trash in it, or the diaphragms a getting hard and not functioning as they should.
Time to rebuild the carb on your trimmer if your trimmer is a few years old, otherwise take apart the carb and blow all passages out with compressed air, clean all surfaces and reassemble and install on the machine.

Good Luck,
I hope this helped, Please rate me

How to start Echo ppt-266


Fill with correct fuel/oil mix. turn switch to I. Pump primer bulb 4-5 times. Turn choke on. Pull starter until engine fires. Turn choke off. Pull Starter until engine runs & allow to warm up for 10 secs before trying to engage throttle. If it doesn't start after 3-4 pulls with no choke then try same sequence again. May have to use 1/2 choke after engine fires. If it still won't start then something is wrong with it & it will need to be checked by a service agent.

Have you drained all the old fuel mixture out? As well as taking out the spark plug and cleaning it should do the trick. I suggest giving it a little tuneup.

BRAND NEW ECHO CS-600P HARD STARTING, HAVE TO PULL THE RECOIL LIKE 20 TIME BEFORE IT WILL START.


Are you pumping the primer bulb until fuel flows into the bulb, setting the choke, and the fast idle is being set? Set the choke at half position after the first 'pop' and don't touch the throttle until it starts running. If you are doing these things per the instructions, take the machine back for warranty adjustment. Hope this helps!

most modern carbies have fixed jets.some you can pry off the caps and adjust,but usually if you need to adjust carbie,youve got other problems.stale fuel,not enough compression,vaccuum leak,spark plug faulty[oiled up]carb gaskets letting in air,needle valve adjustment causing diapragm to not open it enough.used the wrong gaskets in the kit[sometimes they have different model gaskets in one kit

Forgot how tostart it


Ensure you have the correct Fuel / Oil mix for your machine first.

Find the choke knob and turn to the closed position.
Find the Primer Bulb and pump it until it is full of fuel, once the bulb is full give it 3 pumps (If the primer bulb is already full of fuel just give it 3 pumps)
Make sure the ignition switch is in the "I" position and not the"O" position.
Pull start! (should take no more than 3-4 pulls before it fires)
Once it fires it may die instantly.... if so cancel the choke and pull start (should fire again on first pull)
If it does not die and it keeps running, cancel the choke while maintaining the engine's rev's.

Hope this helps.

could be but lets try some other things first
On the carb. you have a primer bulb have you pushed that several times and is there gas in the bulb itself?
Are all of your fuel lines intact and not broken or brittle including the primer bulb?
Are you using fresh fuel mixture?
Be sure your stop and run switch is in the run position.
