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.

2 cycle Echo weed-eater is slow to start and once running it dies at idle. Only operates at near full throttle.


hello sir, my machine will only start when pumping primmer bulb or squirting fluid in the carburetor than stops. the fuel line has broken off, in most small carburetors this is a ongoing problem.old fuel will crystallize when left in tank for a long time.plugging up ports, fuel lines, small screen in carburetor.fuel lines will dissolve clogging carb.this is why it will run when the choke is on creating a vaccum to where there is fuel forced in the carb to rum,also the gas will evoporate leaving the oil behind clogging up carb.the thing to do is remove carb. and clean out,replaceing gaskets or fuel line if necessory.use carb cleaner to clean out carb.make sure to make note where fuel line go.the fuel filter broke off of fuel line letting debris get in carb plugging it up.the muffler is known to clog up a lot on these machines where thay want run. the compression should be 60 to 120 lbs any thing below 60 is junk. when adjusting the carb screws turn in all the way than turnout 1 1/4 turns turn in slow untail machine runs also you need to check for spark by removing plug and grounding aginst engine to chech spark, ok.a new spark plug would be a good ideal too , if you are going to make these repairs use new fuel line and filter,hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you, ``

Echo srm210, hard starting, runs poorly, acts like it is starving for fuel, dies


I would start by checking the condition of the fuel filter and fuel lines and progress to the carburetor from there. Make sure muffler is clear and air filter is not clogged. Your symptoms have all the signs of a dirty carburetor. Post back after checking condition of fuel tank, fuel filter, fuel lines, muffler, and air cleaner, and spark plug also.

Wont stay running, replaced spark plug and air filter, starts but wont stay running


Try mixing fresh gas mixture, any fuel over 30 days old is gone bad, this may help. Or the carburetor may need rebuilding, or the exhaust screen on the muffler is clogged up. Remember before taking anything apart use either PB blaster or Deep Creep on the bolts before loosening them.

Echo GT 2000 does not have spark and will not start. Checked fuel lines, ok, replaced spark plug, ok. checked for spark at plug, no spark.


Your ignition module is probably bad. The part may be as much as $35, but you might want to double check.
