Question about ECHO, Inc. Shred n Vac

Motor not accelerate past idle, bogs down...

I have an Echo brand ES-230, Shred 'n' Vac, handheld leaf blower. Recently I was vacuuming dry, dead leaves when the motor suddenly lost power. At first I thought something had been lodged in the shredder teeth, creating a bind that caused the motor to shut off. After disassembling and checking for any obstructions - and finding none - I attempted to start the blower again. The blower will start without any problem, but will not accelerate past an idle, even when the throttle trigger is fully engaged. I've emptied and changed fuel, cleaned the spark plug, and air filter. Any advice?

    I have a Echo ES2400, it will start and run/idle, but will not get up to full throttle, it bogs down when you give it full gas. You can slowly give it gas and it will build up some speed, but when you give it full throttle it bogs down. I even put in a new plug, air filter and fule filter, that did not help. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!

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.

Vacuum tube will not stay attached. ES 210 sn 6ehxs.o21 .. Has this unit been recalled?

Some ES-210 units have been recalled, yes. It does not appear that the recall affects your particular serial number. However, more info is available from the ECHO-USA website, found HERE.
If in doubt, use the "DEALER LOCATOR" link and call your nearest location.

Hope this helps,
