Check fuel mixture. Be sure you used the can with MIXED fuel and not straight gasoline. If fuel is OK then check mixture screws on carb (the two that are side-by-side). If no limiter caps present on mixture screws, turn them one-quarter turn (1/4) counter clockwise and try again. DO NOT go crazy with these. If they have limit caps on them take the unit to a servicing echo dealership.

Backpack gas blower


Monching, You will have to hope there is not too much damage done already from running straight Gas. Empty all straight gas from blowers tank and refill with proper minimum 50:1 gas oil mix. Start blower and run on 1/2 throttle for a few minutes to be sure its going to be OK. If seized, you will have to try and unseize and if lucky it may run if not too much damage internally. You should run a heavier oil to gas mix 32 or 40:1 in an engine that's been seized. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Hi I have a PB1000 echo leaf blower, I have spark and compression,although there is no primer bulb on this model, so the fuel must have to be vacumed with fuel pump. I used the choke and it still...


Try a tiny spray of Starter Fluid in your machine. If it runs for a second then dies,,,, it would indicate that you have a Fuel problem. Broken gas line of gummed carburetor. Ethanol gas is known for ruining both gas lines and carburetors.

Started PB620-ST yesterday with some difficulty. However, ran until fuel empty. Refueled today, but will not start. Spark at plug ok. Fuel flowing, but seems to overflow into air filter compartment. ...


Sounds like your flooding the engine; I did the same thing. Wait a while to let the gas drain back to the tank. Use your primer bulb once and your choke for only ONE pull; then shut off the choke. Pull start without the choke 2-3 times and it should start.

Forgot how tostart it


Ensure you have the correct Fuel / Oil mix for your machine first.

Find the choke knob and turn to the closed position.
Find the Primer Bulb and pump it until it is full of fuel, once the bulb is full give it 3 pumps (If the primer bulb is already full of fuel just give it 3 pumps)
Make sure the ignition switch is in the "I" position and not the"O" position.
Pull start! (should take no more than 3-4 pulls before it fires)
Once it fires it may die instantly.... if so cancel the choke and pull start (should fire again on first pull)
If it does not die and it keeps running, cancel the choke while maintaining the engine's rev's.

Hope this helps.

I can't get it started. It was my Uncle's who


Tips for starting gas powered garden tools.

1.) Drain old gas and replace with new gas.
2.) Make sure oil/gas mix ratio is correct 50 parts gas 1 part oil.
3.) Pull spark plug and replace with a new one or clean the old one.
4.) Pull start with full choke until engine turns over. Then take choke off.
5.) Pull to start.

It should be that easy. If it doesnt start your problems may require a repair shop.

Echo pb 200 leaf blower want start


Turn on ignition switch, Choke, prime bulb 5 times (or until fuel flows), hold throttle down and pull starter cord sharply until it tries to start, then place choke in mid position pull cord sharply again until it runs then move choke to off when it will allow it.
Also you can go to toro.com then customer care, then manuals and parts then type in model no. and download an owners manual.

Hi

When the engine get warm and die(I suppose)check the spark at the sparkplug.You can let the saw run until it ran out of gas and you will not distroy the engine.Change the sparkplug.
