I had the same problem with mine. I found that the spark arrestor screen in the muffler was clogged with carbon. A new screen for about $2. solved the problem.

Echo Chainsaw will not stay running? has been used a few times in the last 6 months!


Because the unit fires and runs for about 6-8 seconds the issue sounds to be fuel delivery problem. If you changed the fuel lines and checked the diaphragm, was the old lines bad? The carburetor could have sucked up some of the old fuel lines. You may need to change the carburetor.

Echo trimmer wont start, i replaced fuel line and filter, spark plug still wont start


Krissie, there should be two fuel lines. also take the spark plug out and pull the cord a few times to blow out any gas or whatever out of the cylinder. then put the plug in the spark plug boot and pull it a few times holding the plug head next to the engine block to see if it has any spark. if it don't probably the coil or switch is bad, if it has spark put the plug back in and give the opening of the carburetor a squirt of carburetor cleaner and try to start it. it should start then. if it does and dies the carburetor needs to be cleaned or rebuilt.

How do I fix a ryobi bp42 that will not start


It's a 2 stroke & it's relatively new. as long as you didn't score the piston by neglecting to add oil to the fuel mixture, the most likely problem is fuel issues. It only takes a month or 2 to have ethanol fuel absorb enough moisture to ruin the fuel mix. Return all carb settings to original settings. Empty your tank, get rid of your fuel, remix with NON-ETHANOL FUEL MIXED WITH A PREMIUM SYNTHETIC 2-STROKE OIL, such as echo or husquvarna. Purge all the fuel from your lines and primer. Remove the spark plug & pull the cord a few times to dry out the cylinder, run a flame under the spark plug to dry it out. Add 3 drops of fuel mix to the cylinder then replace the plug. Put it on full choke & pull 1 time. Then on 1/2 choke pull to start in 1 or 2 pulls. Still won't start; replace plug & air filter. Let it warm up for 5-10 seconds then turn choke off.

Echo Trimmer starts but won't run


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

I have a Echo leaf blower and I can get it running but then it's cuts off after just a few seconds. It has new plug, air filter and fuel filter. What else could it be?


The carburetor could be dirty and need a good cleaning and you could first remove the fuel pump cover (cover without the vent hole) to the carburetor and look for the small, round, fine-mesh screen. Sometimes it gets covered with dirt and debris and has to be cleaned as it allows the fuel to flow into the metering side of the carburetor.

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!

Hello there, I have a top of the line echo trimmer from home depot... 2 years old.. when I start it up it runs for 20 seconds then chokes and dies.. it keeps running as long as I keep giving it fuel.....


Check the fuel filter for plugging (in the tank). Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Hope this helps!

Mantis tiller starts but will not stay running


Carburetor problem. Two stroke engines use oil mixed with gas. Old fuel or setting over the winter will cause varnish and sludge in the Carburetor. Start by buying a can of carburetor cleaner and mixing a new can of fuel.
1) Dump the old fuel and check replace it with new.
2) Remove the air cleaner.
3) Pump the prime bulb 3 or 4 times, set the choke, spray the insides of the carb with the cleaner and then try and start it . It should sputter and run for a few second but chances are it will take a few sprays to clean the jets
