The fuel filter might be clogged. A clogged fuel filter is most commonly caused by leaving old fuel in the leaf blower. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog the fuel filter and cause the engine to stall.
What is the fuel/oil ratio for my product? A 50:1 ratio with 89 through 93 Octane fuel can be used in all ECHO 2-stroke equipment, provided the oil is ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FD certified.
Poor Wi-Fi Signal

This is one of the most common reasons that your Echo has to keep buffering your music, or it stops altogether. A poor Wi-Fi signal makes it hard for your Echo to connect to the internet where it`s retrieving your music. Checking on your Wi-Fi strength varies depending on which Echo you have.

Will only develop power (and run somewhat properly) when the choke is engaged about 90%. Starts fine.
ANSWER : Sounds to me as tho you may have a loose carburetor or another part that is letting air into the system. Check all bolts and screws for tightness. Also, you may need to clean the carburetor or put some cleaner in your gas. Not too much, only about a tablespoon, but check the screws/bolts first.

My blower only runs with 3/4 choke even after warm up.
ANSWER : Look on the carb for 2 screws side by side. where those screws go into the carb, it will be stamped with an “H” and “L”. Open the screw that is next to the “H”, counterclockwise about 1/4 turn at a time with the engine running, that should solve it.

I have a PB251 that I purchased from Home Depot as a refurbished unit. It has new plug, carb and all new filters. PB251 runs fine with a full tank, but when down to a half of a tank it stalls out and won’t run, until I top off the fuel tank again. Once again ALL filters and cap on this untit are NEW. Any ideas???
ANSWER : Its possible the gas pickup tube inside the tank is bent and not reaching the lower tank,this is just a flexible tube in the tank,otherwise,loosen the gas cap when it kills,sometimes they go bad and create a vapor lock

Forgot how tostart it
ANSWER : Ensure you have the correct Fuel / Oil mix for your machine first.

Find the choke knob and turn to the closed position.
Find the Primer Bulb and pump it until it is full of fuel, once the bulb is full give it 3 pumps (If the primer bulb is already full of fuel just give it 3 pumps)
Make sure the ignition switch is in the “I” position and not the”O” position.
Pull start! (should take no more than 3-4 pulls before it fires)
Once it fires it may die instantly…. if so cancel the choke and pull start (should fire again on first pull)
If it does not die and it keeps running, cancel the choke while maintaining the engine’s rev’s.

Hope this helps.

Starts runs a couple of minutes then dies – Echo Gas Blower 135 MPH390 CFM Blower PB250
ANSWER : It
sounds like you have a bad Ignition Coil (Module). This is how they act
when they start going bad. When they get warm, they quit. Some will
last up to 20 minutes before they shut down. You can sometimes find a
used one pretty cheap at a small engine shop.Jim
