re: Echo ES 1000 blower/shredder vac


The Echo blower has always started on the first pull. A week ago I loaned it to my brother (always a big mistake.) It came back filthy but still had some fuel in it. I used it for a few minutes and it died as the fuel tank was empty.

Filled the tank and it has not started since. I cleaned the air filter, put in fresh fuel at the correct ratio (btw, I gave it to my brother with a 1 gallon can of premix so know he didn't screw it up that way.)

Also put in a new plug and it seems to have spark but not as bright as I'd like.

Only thing I have not done is replace the muffler. I'll likely do that anyway on Monday when the parts shop is open.

Anyone have any ideas on the no-start issue? Seems unlikely is is plugged but who knows.

The muffler should have a spark arrestor on it. Just a small rectangle screen held in with a plate or screws. If plugged just clean this. Echos and Stihls I see this alot. The owners manual should make mention of it for regular maintenance if not troubleshooting.

Sounds like the fuel filter is plugged (or if there isn't one, dirt got into the carb).
