There are an array of things that could be wrong, but most likely this is a carburetion problem.
For starters, make sure the fuel lines are soft and there are no cracks or pinholes in them. They tend to break down after time. I don't know the age of this machine, but a gasket and diaghragm kit may bring it back to normal operation. The parts in this little kit are easy to install and not very expensive. Another issue of note is there is a very fine mesh screen inside the fuel pump chamber of the carburetor that traps dirt and foreign particles. It is easy to access and clean, once you have the pump cover off. The internal parts of the carburetor need to be soft and pliable like the fuel lines to operate correctly. They dry out after time and need replacing. All these little carbs have this issue at some point in their usage. If you remove the carb, gaskets and diaghragms, try spraying all the holes with carb cleaner aerosol spray after cleaning the fine mesh screen. If a good cleaning doesn't help, then you probably need the gasket and diaghragm kit for that carburetor.

How do i check spark on my echo leaf blower


You can take a spark plug tester and plug one end into the spark plug wire and the place the other end on the spark plug and pull the starter rope and see if there is a spark present. Hope this helps.

If it doesn't turn over when you pull the rope it could be in the starter assembly or the flywheel where the starter pawls engage it. If it turns over then you need to check for fuel, spark, air and compression.

ECHO SRM 2100 GRASS TRIMMER HAS NO POWER


For all others with String trimmers, blowers and other 2 stroke style engines...
If no power on high, tends to bog, won't run once choke off, check these:
  • Fuel Filter - It's IN the Gas tank; Just replace it
  • Spark Arrestor at Muffler, it's a screen that tends to clog up and causes very restricted exhaust flow
  • Spark Plug - again just replace it
  • Carburetor, clean or install rebuild kit
  • And adjust sorta hidden High/Low carburetor adjustment screws
Take a look here...

Give lots of details when describing the problem. When it started, was the choke on? If the choke is on, try starting it with the choke off, or starting it with the choke on and immediately taking the choke off when it starts, but keeping your fingers on the choke so you can turn it on again if the motor begins to die. As others have described, you have a problem with the mixture screws not being set right or the carb diaphram being damaged. Your owners manual may tell you what settings to start with on the mixture screws, or you may be able to google the model number and get the manual online if you don't have one. At this point you should have taken the carb apart to look for problems and blow out the air and fuel passages. You are making progress. At least you know that it is getting spark, and getting gas. I am not familiar with that model, but many of them have three settings for the choke, fully on, half on, and completely off. If you have that type, after it starts and dies, take out the plug and dry it, then try starting it with the choke half on. You will need to clear out the excess gas while you have the plug out.

Engine starts finem, but will not reach fill RPM.


Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris.(Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.
