Question about Echo Garden
Try this: Check your air filter, clean if dirty. No fix? Change your gas, prime and try to start. No fix? Check Spark plug for fouling and replace if buildup is present. No fix? Pull the fuel tank and two/three (one is a vent with it's own filter, shouldn't cause the problem) fuel lines coming from the tank and inspect for cracks/holes/dry rot, re-install/replace (fuel line is around $0.75/ft at local repair shop or available at mfr. web site). Still no fix? Pull carb... it's not that big of a deal, you need a phillips screwdriver. Be careful not to let dirt fall into the intake of the motor, so blow it off with compressed air if possible before removal. Pull the top and bottom plates off carb by removing screws, one might be built into the primer cup (I do this part over a cookie sheet to avoid runaway small pieces) gently to reveal the gaskets underneath taking note of which direction they come apart. One gasket should be relatively flat with a couple of holes in it, the other might have a metal washer fastened to it against a spring and arm mechanism which is attached to the carb. Inspect these gaskets and if there is evidence of cracking, or they seem to be "mis-shaped" or brittle, order the appropriate rebuild kit (around $10) from your local small engine shop or online source as per manufacturer's part# (available at Echo's web site). Re-assemble after dousing all parts with carb-cleaner per directions on can and try again. Still no-fix? Seek professional advice, it's going to be over $10 at this point. Fixed? Great, now you have to do yard work. Happy Fall!
