Echo SRM 230 trimmer and fuel in air filter
« on: April 01, 2016, 08:37:40 PM »
My Echo is about 6 years old.  I am troubleshooting slow starting (about 20 pulls before start, despite new spark plug, air filter, etc) and notice there is a good amount of what I believe is fuel in the air filter. I would not think this is normal.  Is it?  If not, what is the cause and how do I correct?  I saw your video on Carb rebuild.  Would that be what I need to do?

The diaphragms in carburetors used on small 2 stroke engines will eventually go bad. These machines also experience long periods of inactivity which is not good.

The proper thing to do is have your local small engine shop inspect and evaluate the fuel system on your Echo trimmer.
