Re: Echo SRM-410U Not Running
Justin: May I make a suggestion? Go on ebay and look for a new carb. You can get a new Chinese made carb for $13 or so. I purchased two carbs from "The ROP Shop". They are a vendor on ebay. They have highly quality aftermarket carbs for cheap. Best part - they come with regular screws to adjust the jets, so you don't have to buy any special tools to adjust the carbs. My Echo hedge clipper was doing the same thing. It would start, but no acceleration. $13 bucks later, and a new spark plug, it's running like American Pharoah at the Kentucky Derby. No carb to take apart, no special tools. Just sweetness at high rpm's. Like a brand new tool. Give it a shot and let me know how you make out. A can of fresh premixed 2-cycle fuel is not a bad idea, either. Run the machine with the fresh gas for a few minutes, and it should clean all the crap out of it. I was able to re-use the old gasket that came off the old carb since it had not been cemented in place with Permatex. Time investment? Under one hour, but you'll have a new machine. Hot Ajax.
