Question about Echo Garden

1 Answer

Echo brushcutter won't start. Its a SRM5000, about six years old, and in regular use. Started & ran fine yesterday. Today - dead. Checked spark at the plug, fuel at the carb - both OK. Stripped the carb - it was clean internally. Took the exhaust off, & engine ran. Flushed exhaust out with paraffin & then burnt it - no gunk came out, and the exhaust seems clear when I blow through it. Engine still won't start with the exhaust fitted. What do I try next?

It could be an air/petrol mix that is wrong that would explain why it works with exhaust off

try a jump start off of a similar battery with the same voltage. If that does not work, there is a chance your ignition wire is not wired into the throttle anymore. try reconnecting it.

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.

Engine starts and runs a few seconds and quits


It sounds like your carburetor needs cleaned. If you started it for the first time without emptying the old gas, you may have had dirt particle's that had settled at the bottom of the tank. This would explain why it had ran the day before. If you need further assistance on how to clean the carb., just let me know.
