Question about ECHO, Inc. PB-251C Handheld Blower

1 Answer

Even though I have the carb. set in choke, and press the bulb many times, it doesn't seem as if and gas gets through. I eventually put the carb. setting in Run and pull the crank many times before it starts. The blower is 2 years old, used on about 12 lawns per week. The problem stared in mid summer. Any suggestions? Thank You.

This part fits your Leaf Blower. Husqvarna fuel filter. If the fuel filter is clogged, it willrestrict the flow of fuel to the carburetor. As a result, the engine may not start.

WHEN YOU GIVE A CARB CHOKE, IT RESTRICTS AIR FLOW AND GIVING THE ENGINE MORE GAS INSTEAD OF A REQUIRED MIXTURE... USUALLY THIS IS FOR STARTING IN COLD TEMPS. UNTIL THE ENGINE WARMS UP AND YOU RETURN THE CHOKE BACK TO NORMAL. THAT IS ALL THE CHOKE DOES.... IT DOES NOT MAKE THE ENGINE RUN BETTER BECAUSE YOU THINK IT WILL.

Not getting gas


The bulb usually doesn't feel that way, you're thinking of a small 2-cycle machine where the bulb will fill up with fuel and offer resistance when pushed. A primer on a snowblower is merely to get fuel flowing to the carb from the tank, whereas the bulb on 2-cycle items actually purges air from the fuel circuit. If you keep pressing the primer you should see fuel drip from the carb inlet. Btw, if you see where an air filter might be on other motors, a little metal cup looking thing, try removing the bolts and flipping it over so the fuel drips out easier and snow doesn't have the chance to fall into it if it were facing up. Once you see fuel dripping out, provided you ran it dry last season when you put the blower away and the carb isn't gummed up with varnish, it should start on full choke. Give it about 3-5 seconds and move it to half choke. Once it seems to want to run on its own, open the choke completely and you should be warmed up and ready to go. Also always remember to let engines idle a bit to cool down if you've been running them at high rpms.

The primer bulb on my Troy-bilt TB20CS will press in but it doesn't feel like it's pulling in fuel. Earlier after filling the gas tank, I noticed a little gas was leaking, and saw that the tube...


Or it could be like mine. I turned it upside down to take the cover off (Troy Bilt) to clean the air filter. Put it back together and the primer won't fill. Also it looked like air was coming into the bulb from the carb. Weird, since it was filling just a minute ago. Turns out the fuel lines in the tank were dry rotted. When I emptied the fuel tank, bits and pieces of fuel line came out along with several washers and a weight that goes on the end of the hose. Looking inside I saw a hose not connected to anything. Pulled it out and it came out in pieces (kept breaking when I'd grab it). That's why it's not connected to anything! Also why it won't prime or start. Probably also why it was getting to where it didn't run very well, and only on the A choke setting. It would cost almost as much to fix as to buy a new one. Bummer. For $90 though, if lasted five years. Maybe if I change the lines earlier on the next one I can even get more life out of it.

Need to know what carb screw adjustment need to be set at weedeater starts for about 4-7 sec then shuts down put new hoses on checked gas filter and cap checked out ok. i pump the ball about 10 times...


If there is a choke adjustment you should set that at full until the trimmer warms up, don't touch the gas. Then repull start at half choke, don't touch the gas either at this time. Then start at no choke, and then set your idle on the carberator with the adjustment screw. Also don't push the primer bulb so many time you will cause the spark plug to get flooded and drown out the spark, which is exactly what is happening.

I have a craftsman 32cc weedwacker line trimer. Having trouble starting it. I noticed that the fuel lines didn't look to good so I replaced both. Installed a new spark plug and put in a fresh tank of gas...


Sounds as if the Carb needs to be cleaned out. Get yourself a can of non-chlorinated brake cleaner and spray the carb out really well. Then reinstall the carb. Also check any ports in the carb to make sure there isn't any debris blocking the flow of fuel. I would also suggest getting some Stabil Marine (blue) fuel stabilizer. The ethanol in gas destroys small engine carbs. Just mix this in with your gas tank the next time you fill up. How old is this fuel? The ethanol also absorbs water, so even while in the gas can it is obtaining moisture. The Stabil Marine formula helps lesson the effects of the ethanol.

Wont start what is spark plug gap whatelse bulb full,new,gas in it,lines hooked


These are bad about flooding with the least amount of trying to. I usually can get mine started by letting it sit for 5-10 min. push the bulb 3-4 times hold the trigger and push the choke on full with 3/4 speed set. Pull 1x. Don't worry usually it won't start on this setting, it really just helps get the choke and carb set. Put choke back 1/2 way and try to start, if so, gas the trigger a couple of times but not holding in down. If it don't start put the choke on full again and try to start without holding the trigger. It should start after this. Take the plug out replace the coil wire onto plug and pull the cord gently to see if you're getting spark at the plug. Holding the coil boot to prevent it giving a small jolt.

Echo tiller doesn''t want to run


you may need a diaphram in the carb or the tiny screen (if it has one) is plugged. Also check hoses to and from tank make sure they are good and not soft and gooey. You could draine tank and put pure gas in and use primer bulb to circulate it then remove gas and add mixed gas. long shot but may work, has for me.

Never used trimmer won't stay running.


Check the gas line and the return. The hoses may be clogged or defective.
