Question about Echo Garden

1 Answer

Echo Trimmer starts but won't run

Starts but will run only a few seconds. After starting, while idling, it will die immediately if I increase throttle. I have replaced the carburetor, spark plug, and cleaned the air filter. The first time starting after replacing the carburetor, it ran fine for several minutes. I began a test of actually trimming but as soon as it came under a little load it began to lose RPM until it died. It acts as if it is starved for gas.

Replace the filter in the gas tank. Sounds like it is mostly plugged.

SOURCE: My Echo power edge trimmer

I was having the same problem and stood there while the tech fixed it for me. I could have done it myself; honestly, nothing to be afraid of. Take the air cleaner off and then take the carburetor off and start taking it apart layer by layer (remove screws and take pictures with a digital camera of how to put it back). It is not complicated and it was a small piece of grass stuck where you never thought it could get that allowed a start but not full throttle.

SOURCE: engine starts finem, but will not reach fill RPM.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris.(Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

SOURCE: Starts fine but dies when set to run.

You either have a air leak in a fuel line, carb jets are plugged, or carb seals went bad. They sell a rebuild kit for your carb, 10-15 dollars. I would start by removing carb spraying it with carb cleaner and blowing it out with a air gun, put it back on and see if this worked. If not I would replace fuel lines and rebuild carb.

Its a hot start issue.

Can be related to low fuel pressure or problem with crank sensor.


Also it can be weak battery or starter.

My toro weed trimmer starts good runs great for a few minutes then starts to bogg out then dies, will start back up but won't stay running.i already replaced the fuel tank, lines and filter.


Check the air filter isn't dirty.
If the machine runs ok on high speed but cuts out while idling, the idle speed may be too low. There is usually an adustment screw for increasing the speed.
If the fuel line is a flexible type which moves around inside the tank, check it is able to move freely because if you are cutting at awkward angles, the end of the line can end end up above the surface of the fuel, **** in air and airlock the line. You can eliminate this as the problem by fully filling the tank.
Check whether there is a one way check valve on the tank. This vents air into the tank as the fuel leaves for the carburettor. Sometimes particles of dirt can get stuck in this.

Chainsaw runs out of gas.


From your description, it sounds like your carb is running too lean. Make sure the spark arrestor screen is free of carbon build-up and the air filter is in place. Warm the saw up. With the saw at idle, adjust the Low adjustment screw to slightly enrich the mixture. If you turn it to run the fastest possible when idling, it is too lean. When the Low setting is right, you will be able to increase the RPM without it dying. If the High setting is way too lean, it may also die when you open up the throttle. If you run the saw too lean, it willl overheat and sieze.
