We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Turn on the ignition switch and pull the starting cord quickly. You should see a spark in the plug gap. Since the spark may be faint, it may help to do the test in a dark area. If there is no spark, check for a broken or shorted (bare) lead wire or bad switch.
Over time, the spark arrestor can become clogged with soot. If the spark arrestor is clogged, the engine may not start. To unclog the spark arrestor, remove it and clean it with a wire brush. You may also replace the spark arrestor.

Why does my spark arrestor screen clog? Carbon build up could be caused from several things. The spark arrestor screen can plug within only 4-6 tanks of fuel if: – Fuel that is more than 30 days old which may contain varnish.
The more worn or dirty spark plugs are, the greater the pull on the rewind and more effort is required to produce an adequate spark. If you haven`t turned on your engine recently, your mower won`t start and/or you have to tug repeatedly on the rewind to start the engine, a damaged spark plug may be the culprit.

How do you properly load the spool on an Echo GT-2000 trimmer?
My brother gave me one and told me what to do, but I find that it
coils so tight that it kind of fuses itself. I have to pry it apart, thread
it through the two outlets, put the spring a=back, load the entire unit
only to have the same problem happen over and over again. I’m frustrated. Can this spool be replaced with something newer?
