Question about Garden
Bought it in January 2011 worked well until this time. Will run on choke but when I slide the lever to run will die out as if fuel or air is being cut off? I opened, took and cleaned carburetor apart and seems to be still relatively new. Tried adjusting the idle screw but very sensitive will back-fire if opened wide and just runs on choke but again will die out after a while. Is it a good idea just to buy the whole carburetor assembly and replacing it or do I need to open the filter for possible clogging causing to be cut off after awhile? Please advise, I bought one in 2003 and never gave me this problem before, looks like the part is made in China and of poor quality, please advise I am about to write the Better Business Bureau about this, for the price I paid should have gotten another brand instead.

I've noticed the Echos are cold-blooded and a decent warm-up time is required. You indicate the fuel mixture has to be somewhat rich to keep the engine running. This indicates the needle jets need tweaking to acquire the proper mix (if applicable) or else the fuel pump diaghram is not functioning properly and needs replacement according to the symptoms.
Here is a link to the site that has the G&D (gasket and diaghram) kit and RB (rebuild) kit part numbers for you. You will need to know your machine's model. Link to determine your carb: http://www.zamacarb.com/pdfs/APPL_CR2010.pdf
This is the link to determine the part numbers of the kits. Zama has a great site and informative links:
