I have the same leaf blower and what I did was took apart the muffler and inside is a small square screen. Your going to want to clean the screen and all other parts and make sure there is no build up. After doing so reassemble everything and it should work like the day you got it!

I think you are on the right track with removing the screen from the exhaust, but I feel your exhaust blockage is further back...possibly in the muffler or ,most likely, in the exhaust port itself. To check, remove the muffler and visually inspect the muffler port. If it is clogged, rotate the piston to the top of the cylinder and using a dull small screwdriver, chip away at the carbon until you have it clear. don't chip too hard, you don't want to damage the piston. Use some compressed air to blow away the debris. Lower the piston and blow away any stray debris that might have ended up in the cylinder. You can test run with the muffler removed, but only for a few seconds, and it will be very loud.
If the muffler port is clear and the test run without the muffler doesn't cause a significant difference in the engine speed, then the next course is in the carburetor. Most of Echo's current products use carbs that are not adjustable, therefore the carb must be rebuilt or replaced.
Good luck!

    Per Echo service man: "Bad coil" Static discharge causes the advance timing circuit in the coil to short out. Fix is a new coil and add a ground wire to throtle area of the leaf blower.

Fuel lines could be collapsing from being soft, mush from ethanol in gas, possibly you have wrong carb kit, or something put together wrong, fuel lines reversed, double check everything then make sure you exhaust screen is not plugged, cause this will do same thing.

Check the grommet that sits on top of tank where lines from go carb. Grommet may be rotten and crack. Try that. Have you ever replace the carb repair kit? The diaphram may be torn, defoam or have holes in them. Carb kit cost arount $10, but don't mess with the welch plug or screen in carb.

Try adding some "Seafoam" brand additive to the fuel mixture, that did the trick for mine. Must have been something in the carb and the Seafoam cleaned it out, runs just like the day it came out of the box
