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.
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
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.
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
Drew Speirs: Hi Double Wide 6, great video. How about the echo pas 265?? Does this have
a similar screw?? Much appreciated video!!
Marc Heritier: Suggestion for wire ; use a 10/1000 inch (top E ) guitar string . It works
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!
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!!!!
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!
biron foster: if this works i will send you 20$ i will dude
Randy Burgess: This video just saved me $50 bucks. I'd just rebuild my carburetor and no
joy. Been messing with this for days and just found this video, turned the
screw and my machine works great.
doublewide6: LOL, great to hear that I could help you. I have paypal. emailbob2day is my
paypal address. All money will be put back into my channel. Thanks dw6
Wise Man: Thanks a million! At last I will hear my engine sing to me again!
lawnboy1100: I am suprised i did not know that. What does dw6 mean? I ahve the same cure
for the tecumseh non adjustable bowl nut on the carbs. You just pop off the
plastic cap and undo the small brass jet and run the wire in the same
directions and put it back in and you do not have the hunting and surgeing
anymore. Cool vid man.
Saeid Assadi: doublewide6, very nicely done! i took my carburetor apart and checked and
clean every inch of it. looked at many forums which try one or two things,
then say to order a new carburetor... i thought to myself, so what, buy a
new carburetor, then i still don't know what the problem was. sure enough,
the hidden jet screw was partially clogged from old gas/oil or whatever.
runs as good as new. thank you doublewide6.
David Thorne: don't know if you tried heating up a small screw driver and just pressing
it into that plastic cap...hold it there for a sec. to let the plastic
harden back up ...then unscrew it. you can hit the jet from there ... no
need to put the carb. try it! you'll like it!
Jim Milligan: I want to thank you for this video. I have a hedge trimmer I couldn't keep
running and was going to take it to the shop Monday. Mine was plugged so
hard that I had to soak it in parts cleaner before I could get a wire
through. Thanks Again.
