The first thing that I must ask is, "Did you store your blower with gas in your fuel tank? If so, your carburetor will have to be rebuilt because the fuel breaks down the diaphragms and cloggs the screen inside the carburetor. If you didn't store your blower with fuel in the tank then pull the spark plug to see if it's firing. If you have fire the you have to check the compression because you need at least 95psi in order for your blower to run.

SOURCE: my echo backpack leaf blower

Without getting to involved with it, did you always mix the correct fuel/oil ratio? or has someone else possibly put straight gas in it without oil? Another possibility is that the recoil could be broke. I would try to determine if the piston is seized in the cylinder. First remove the spark plug and try to pull the starter rope while listening closely for any strange noises from the engine. If it pulls fine then, replace the spark plug and try to start it again. If that doesn't work then I would remove the back cover and remove the muffler so you can look at the cylinder. You will need a phillips screwdriver and a set of metric allen wrenches. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: I have a new echo

sounds like a dirty carb, dissamble it and rinse good with carb clean, be careful when taking the top off it that you get it back together the same spray the white center good and all little holes good. then reassemble, also try to loosen your gas cap maybe first before cleaning carb, you might have a plugged vent in the line coming out of the tank. Good Luck

I don't think the oil-gas ratio will cause that problem. Did you check to see if the fuel lines or fuel filter is clogged?

Echo blower wont fire

you sheared the flywheel key... If it's a PB250 251 or something along those lines you are going to need a new carb and flywheel. Take it to the dealer and see if they can fix in under warranty... Why the carb you say, it leaked causing the flywheel to come loose. If it's not under warranty then do not repair, you can buy a new one for about $160 USD

Echo pb-251 won't run with out choke

I would say that Daren is on the best track here for repair. Myself i agree with the fact that your carb has some sort of blockage. Start with a good carb cleaning. Good Luck....

Blower starts and runs for 5 seconds and cuts off. Is it an oil to gas ratio. Is is 32:1 or 40:1? For the Echo PB250 gas blower.

I don't think the oil-gas ratio will cause that problem. Did you check to see if the fuel lines or fuel filter is clogged?

Only three months old and used twice now it won't start we chnaged the gas brand new with new mixture. It boggs and just dies. ECHO PB250

My research shows that a consumer gets a 5 year warranty and a commercial user gets a 2 year warranty on any Echo equipment they buy. Could you consider getting some warranty service on this unit since it is still under coverage? It sounds like a fuel delivery problem (carburetor adjustment maybe), but I also realize that some of the newer "rotary" type carburetors in use don't have the Low and High speed mixture adjusting screws like the old-style diaphragm carburetors that preceded them.

Echo leaf blower..cranks fine, idles fine, will not throttle up.

Sounds like restricted exaust. Remove the muffler and start it, see if that fixes it. If yes clean remaining carbon from exaust port. And clean spark arestor screen.
