evanhall27: I KNEW that sucker was hidden somewhere in there!! After completely taking
the carburetor apart and cleaning it 3 times, new spark plug, new fuel, new
fuel filter, checking spark arrestor, etc.. I knew all along that it had to
be something to clean or adjust under that little piece of black plastic..I
was just afraid to mess with it! Btw, it didn't work after I cleaned the
jet and put it back in because I only 'snugged' it up..and after messing
with it and it not starting I decided to tighten it even more and boom!
Fired right up and ran better than before. .Thank you so much!!
foreverwood1963: Thanks double wide I've never seen that. I do have an echo that can't be
adjusted, but I've yet to ever clean that one. This was excellent info
David Norris: I don't know if anyone else has mentioned it, but go down to the welding
supply joint and get a torch tip cleaner kit....perfect for these diameters
Reiko Takahashi: Couldnt get the brass insert out. Blasted the inside with carb cleaner and
adjusted under full throttle. Works great nowl Thx
kaleibob: I was about to give up then I found this video. I took that damn thing
apart 6 times and couldnt figure it out. had a little debris in the set
screw and all seems well.
thanks for the info
grutubevideos: This solved my problem with my Echo PB 250 LN blower. I first checked the
spark arrestor since that was another common issue, but there was no
blockage there. For the blower, i was able to remove the adjuster plug with
the carburetor still loosely attached to the blower. You'll need a Torx T25
or preferably T27 to loosen air filter/carburetor assembly then remove the
fuel bulb assembly and you can access the plug. I didn't use a drill but
simply used a small regular screwdriver to ream the brass plastic assembly
till it came out. I removed the fuel needle valve and ran a wire from a
wire brush through it to make sure it was clear. Reinstall the needle valve
all the way and back out 1/2 turn. Reattach the fuel bulb assembly to the
carb and the retighten the air cleaner/carburetor assembly. Started right
up and adjusted the fuel mixture at full throttle. Good luck!
brotharuss: All I can say is...echo dealers must hate you tube. 40,000 views x $50
bucks is a lot of carb money they missed out on.
Tip for all - You can use a pick if your not comfortable with a drill to
get the plastic insert out.
Armando Pulgaron: Thank you so much for this post. You saved me from having to buy a new
carb, or a new machine. When the pe-225 edger stopped running, I determined
the problem was the fuel system. I thought easy" just clean the carb, throw
a carb repair kit on it, check the filters, we're done. Wrong! I was not
happy. It still pointed to fuel but i checked everything including exhaust
for blockage, every thing. I must have tore that carb down 10 times,
wondering why it would not run. Till I saw your video. thanks so much. Now
it runs like a monster. Until now I thought that unit was under powered. It
was probably not set right from the factory. It was always feeble. Thanks
JB Bass: great job, getting ready to buy a carb on ebay and seen your video....mine
runs like a champ, this is the high speed adjustment. i ran mine in till it
stopped then backed it out 2 turns, then adjusted while wide open-will not
run if screwed all the way in. THANKS D WIDE
on a mission: thank you dude
montee79: Worked for me too thanks much man !!!!!
gary stiles: THANK YOU!!!!!
Now how much other stuff don't I know?
doccpu7: Sweet and helpful vid Butttt bit boring. Also the cylinder is plastic so
after a while the little wheel eats the track and it runs leaner. Sad. the
echos used to run forever. Now the plastic is so soft a lot of throttle
action will wear out the ramp on the cylinder. So dont do a lot of revving.
Calvon Bowden: Thanks that was a great guide!!
David Donaldson: Worked for me! Mine was idling fine but would sputter out once you gave it
throttle. I did the rebuild and it didn't help. Then I took out the jet and
cleaned it and it got much better. Last, I backed out the jet a turn or so
and it ran perfectly! The trimmer was only about a year old! The jet didn't
look clogged but cleaning it made all the difference. Thanks!!!
Ric Barnett: Got my PB 250 blower running right again. Thanks a lot! With the jet fully
seated, it wasn't quite right, so played around a bit and settled at 3/4
Peter Artemenko: This works! Thanks so much.
Jeff Poppe: This did the trick. I bought my Echo srm 225 trimmer last spring and when i
pulled it out of hibernation this year it was bogging really bad. Thanks
for this video!
Stefan Granhaug: thanks man you just saved me 40 bucks on a new carb.
MrReynolds560: These trimmers are notorious for getting carbon clogs in the exhaust ports.
That is the first thing I check on mine if it acts up.
Kalkaekie: Very helpful ! Thanks !
Harry Pappas: does this help my blower when it bog or run half speed th dw
Peter Goltzman: Thanks. That did the trick for me. I was surprised at just how tiny the
hole on the bottom of the screw was. I was afraid the fine wire I stuck up
in there would break off inside. It's no wonder it gets clogged.
Any how without someone telling me about it, I would have never figured it
out. Thanks again.
blosom2315: my trimmer would only run on choke. I did this and now it wont run at all.
thanks. i'm sure I just voided the warranty too.
Troyvidihoo: Thank you man, I been frustrated with this model carb several times and now
see where I failed to notice this deceitful little feature! Appreciate
your efforts and insights!
Maxwell Smart: I will add my big thank you as well! That's the only video I could find
that reveals that "secret" and the only way that I could get my trimmer
running again. Great job.
bsox67: My buddy has an echo backpack that is running ok..Starts and runs fine and
throttles up ok.. He says it just doesn't have quite the power it used to
have. Before i rip it apart, would this be a potential problem for lack of
full power? Thank you
wcjcnc: Well damn it!!! I have an Echo trimmer with this exact same carburetor and
I've replaced the entire fuel line assembly and carb kit and it still won't
run right. It will crank but it won't throttle up. This has to be what's
wrong with it. THANK YOU!!!!
Marc Heritier: Suggestion for wire ; use a 10/1000 inch (top E ) guitar string . It works
Drew Speirs: Hi Double Wide 6, great video. How about the echo pas 265?? Does this have
a similar screw?? Much appreciated video!!
James Lauer: Just want to say thanks it worked great
wcjcnc: I adjusted this screw out just half a turn and the trimmer runs great!
Finally! The screw/jet is really snug so I don't think it will turn on it's
own. I was ready to smash that trimmer against a tree. lol
Keith McDaniel: My Echo trimmer would only run at idol with the choke full on and would
stall out when I pressed the throttle. Cleaning the jet with a piece of
wire from a wire brush fixed the trimmer and it now runs like new.
wcjcnc: I cleaned this jet screw out but my trimmer still won't run. Are you sure
it needs to be snugged up when reinstalled? Wondering if adjusting it will
make a difference. I had a Tecumseh carb on a post hole digger once with a
screw kind of like this that I read should be snugged up when installed but
I turned it out just a bit and it made a difference. Thanks for the vid!
David Thorne: thanks man....big help! Is that a piece of plastic on the kitchen table I
see ... hope your old lady knows what a gentlemen you are ... that's worth
some points man! DirtBoy32
dtrain138: 2 months later, but yes. I'm about to go to the shop for some fuel lines.
My dad cut the bulb and the dealer said that''s an old-school fix thing,
but this machine doesn't work like that so now it's not the blb, so I hope
it's the fuel line. If not, I'm going to try some other things. I'll try to
find you if I happen to fix it somehow. On mine, you can kinda hear air
coming out somewhere. Good luck...and let me know if you fix it first. Thx
mark Farrer: your the man i bought a echo sr230 for 40 bucks... it would idle but would
allow me to give it gas.. i took it apart and it did nothing.. i did what
you said to do and wallah it worked.. i had just ordered a new carb
tonight. i was able to cancel the order.. you just saved me 40 bucks thanks
Jay: Anyone else have the issue where you push the primer bowl an gas flows
backwards out the air intake? Can't seem to fix this issue . it's been a
few years now
zamarro94luigi: Luigi Marro
biron foster: dude it worked i need a phone number and adress to sent you 20$ money order
joe fishman: you do have to replace the carb you have no choice the carb is a piece of
crap now there is another adjustment did you know that ?
baileyslip: Hi again, I just gotta say of all the videos that I have watched no one
says anything about the two line connection on the primer base ASSY, as the
fuel side on mine is clear, but the other one the primer side on mine is
cloged.... It's a zama also. Thanks again for any help.
xarlock667: You are awesome! Much appreciated!
beechwood619: Great helpful video. Your right, it's a jet not a needle valve. It should
be seated fully and if you cleaned the hole from the tip to the two larger
holes completely, it will meter the fuel flo for the high speed operation.
It took me a good half hour to get the hole completely clean, at first I
just broke thru with the wire and reassembled and it, still wouldn't rev up
to top speed, went back and cleaned it fully and it worked perfectly.
Todd Malone: you are my hero too. Be sure to adjust that screw. Mine had to back out
about 1.5 turns from seated to get it to rev up to top speed without
cutting out. I think this adjustment has made my Echo trimmer run better
than when we bought it. Thanks!
yenot75: Awesome job!!!!
MrRmh3481: Great Vid. This carb looks like a Zama? The Walbro Barrel Carb has a couple
hidden jets, one on the top and sometimes another one on the side hidden
under plastic plugs. The Walbros are adjustable though, unlike this zama.
Did that jet have a number on it?
pertgoforit: You just save my Day :-)
baileyslip: Hi doublewide I have this carb on my weedeater., my question is the
BASE-ASSY that white plastic the bubble sits on has the two connections for
fuel and primer lines.,, the smaller one on mine is cloged should it be? Or
should I be able to blow through it?? Thanks for any reply Linda from Ga.
JOE Z: I have not run into this yet but I am sure I will at some point. This will
save me a lot of time. Thanks for the great tip!
Living Social: I got a groupon from Miami and almost got tricked. The description was way off for that the deal they were offering. I found groupon reviews that several people had the same issue. Luckily Groupon honor a refund, but my time was wasted.
