Question about Echo Garden

1 Answer

My Echo power edge trimmer starts and idles fine. When I try to throttle up it begins to die out. I can get it to run at a slower speed, but to get it to maximum rev it dies. I replaced the spark plug, air filter, and gas filter.

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.

1996 mercedes c280 dies when put in drive

Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

My echo stick edger starts fine , idles fine , when i start edging it dies. but starts right back up. replaced the gromet. didnt help.what do i check now?

If the fuel filter in the tank is part blocked this could happen, these engines need to run a little on the rich side when running free, the excess fuel is required once load is put on the engine, so try changing the fuel filter.

I have a TroyBilt trimmer Model TB25CS 2 cycle. I have replaced the carb mounting gaskets and rebuilt the Zama Carb. It idles fine, but when I give it full throttle it just dies. There is a white and...

first remove your muffler and check to see if screen is plugged in exhaust..this will cause it not to rev. Also if you rebuilt your carb you neglected to pull your jets out and flush them out, pull both caps off adj screws with small screwdriver and try to adj "H" turn counterclockwise 1/8to 1/4 turn and see if it improves any if so keep turning till rpms start to slow back down then slowly turn back clockwise just till on edge of rpms speeding back up ,also did you change your fuel filter? hope this helps you!

I have a 452 echo. lost the manual in a move. the boys 8-9 decided to tune up the saw and now I can't get it running...can you help me with the begining setings..Thanks John

Likely, they have adjusted the H and L jet needles and maybe the idle speed screw. Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns. This is a basic setting and should let the engine start and run. Start the engine and let warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H jet needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L jet needle CW for better idle, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but allows the engine to continue to run. Hope this helps!

Troy-Bilt TB75SS 31cc string trimmer dies when given throttle.

Your carburetor needs cleaned. Disassemble carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. Make sure that the small screen is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush,
(, to clean the small portals in the carb. Reassemble and start. If this doesn't work for you then you will have to buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts. If you need further assistance, just let me know.
