Sounds like a dirty carb, dissamble it and rinse good with carb clean, be careful when taking the top off it that you get it back together the same spray the white center good and all little holes good. then reassemble, also try to loosen your gas cap maybe first before cleaning carb, you might have a plugged vent in the line coming out of the tank. Good Luck

Echo pb-251 won't run with out choke


I would say that Daren is on the best track here for repair. Myself i agree with the fact that your carb has some sort of blockage. Start with a good carb cleaning. Good Luck....

Blower starts and runs for 5 seconds and cuts off. Is it an oil to gas ratio. Is is 32:1 or 40:1? For the Echo PB250 gas blower.


I don't think the oil-gas ratio will cause that problem. Did you check to see if the fuel lines or fuel filter is clogged?

Starts runs a couple of minutes then dies


It sounds like you have a bad Ignition Coil (Module). This is how they act when they start going bad. When they get warm, they quit. Some will last up to 20 minutes before they shut down. You can sometimes find a used one pretty cheap at a small engine shop.

I have an echo pb-250 blower. This is the second blower ive had issues with. I have had it for maybe three months and this is the second time that ive experienced this problem. I can easily start it but...


what you need to do is remove the white plastic plug just above the diaphram gskt in the base of the carb use a pick or drill bit (but only turn it by hand) till you get it out then you will see a screw which will take a small flat blade screwdriver, start and warm up the blower then turn that screw counterclockwise till your Blower runs right on full throttle. the new equipment made now a days is set so lean for emissions that one change in the weather will affect how they run..... 2StrokeJim

BLOWER WILL START WITH FULL CHOKE, BUT SHUTS OFF WHEN TRYING TO REDUCE CHOKE.


I'm having the same problem. My suspicion is the carborator requires gas/air mixture adustments. This requires a special carb adjustment tool - called a Long Single D Tool. I will try to have my fixed very soon - 1 week...I'll try to keep you posted.

Only three months old and used twice now it won't start we chnaged the gas brand new with new mixture. It boggs and just dies. ECHO PB250


My research shows that a consumer gets a 5 year warranty and a commercial user gets a 2 year warranty on any Echo equipment they buy. Could you consider getting some warranty service on this unit since it is still under coverage? It sounds like a fuel delivery problem (carburetor adjustment maybe), but I also realize that some of the newer "rotary" type carburetors in use don't have the Low and High speed mixture adjusting screws like the old-style diaphragm carburetors that preceded them.

Echo leaf blower..cranks fine, idles fine, will not throttle up.


Sounds like restricted exaust. Remove the muffler and start it, see if that fixes it. If yes clean remaining carbon from exaust port. And clean spark arestor screen.
