Check your spark arrestor. It's a screen in the muffler. If it gets clogged up, and it will eventually, your engine will start and run, but it will not want to run at higher rpms. You have to remove the muffler, then you just clean the screen. Try that. It's a relative easy fix.

    checking your spark arrestor is completely stupid!

Vintage Echo CS-302. Ran for years with zero problems. Until now. It starts and runs great for about 320 seconds. It will rev to max rpm, then it starts dying. wah, wah, wah,, shuts off. Repeat,same


check for problems in the carby--replace with a kit
check the filter on the end of the line in the tank-- they tend to block up
check for blocked exhaust--- carbined up inside
don't use E fuels as they will not operate on the E mix

Echo gas leaf blower bog down


Likely dirt in high speed needle valve(H); could be leaky fuel line(air leaking in), plugged fuel filter, pinched fuel line, etc - anything restricting flow of fuel. Likely, you aggravated an existing problem by cleaning the air filter which would have been providing some choke effect if it were partially plugged.

Can't get my Echo PB251 Blower to rev up at all, unit is 8 mo.s old was running fine now all of a sudden won't rev up, I have changed plug gas filter,cleaned all filters including spark arrestor changed...


guarantee exhaust is clogged maybe not muffler but exhaust port pull muffler off check screen and muffler then look into exhaust port usually rectangular port is closed down with carbon pull starter slowly to lower piston then scrape out carbon with screwdriver clean as good as possible then blow cylinder out make sure to get all pieces of carbon out reassemble should run fine

Proper gasoline and oil mix ratio.


My echo uses 50-1 ration. Home Depot sells the small containers for Echo Leaf Blowers that you mix with one gallon of gas.

I have an echo gas powered leaf blower, model pb251. it will start and idol, but wont run any faster than that, and throttle cable seems to be ok.


I just fixed my Echo PB 2100 with the same issue. It would start, run, all throttle openings OK but would not rev-up. It was a dirty/clogged screen on the muffler. Scraped the thick tar off then used Lacquer Thinner to soak it clean. Blower works better than ever now....
