Question about Garden
Hello kmc.... your weed trimmer is overheating and then dying. this is often due to replacing the original spark plug with a new one which is too hot. do not guess about the spark plug. get
REPOWERTM Tune-Up Kit P/N 90074C from ECHO.

You didn't mention the spark arrestor, did you check it?
Have you checked the compression of the engine? A quick way to check is to lift the trimmer up by the starter rope. If it sags back a bit, the compression is low. If it gives a good tug, then the compression is good.
If the compression isn't good, you can try filling up with fresh gas and the correct oil/gas ratio and adjust the idle speed up and down a bit.
If this doesn't help, then test the engine with a compression tester.
Looks like you've checked everything else. Good luck.
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

The magnito that the spark plug wire runs off from is very weak causing this problem
For the money a new weed trimmer is in store for you
Getting 4 years of service is normal
A new magnito and a carb kit cost you nearly half as much as the whole trimmer
I always purchase a new one about every 3 to 4 years myself for the cost to repair is senseless. It just cost to much for carb and everything else along with the time wasted
