Answer: 
I had the same problem. Played with the choke in various positions until it would idle for a time. Once warm ran like a top. During use it stopped running. I opened the fuel cap and then put back on but not as tight. Cranked the engine and it started right up and ran great. From that point on I have not had any problems.

Answer: 
This model has a history of carburator problems. I have had two models, both of which do this....do not warm up & die, when either throttled or choke is moved towards 'run'. Look into returning, however Echo is very reluctant to acknowledge this problem as they have sold quite a few of these defective units.

Answer: 
It's the carb on this machine. Look on the internet -- there are many people stuck with the same problem. Good luck trying to get Echo to repair it. Echo always says "it's gasoline related" and refuses to pay.

It is in the carb. You need to take it in for cleaning, at your expense. Echo is no help!

Answer: 
If the gas is new and good hi-test, with the 50:1 oil properly mixed in, you may have to make a mixture adjustment after the unit is broken in. Also possible is you have a slighty different generation of this model than mine, which comess off the choke almost immediately. If there is actually a defect, let the dealer take care of it under warranty.

Make sure the fuel/oil mixture is correct (2.6oz of oil per gal of fuel). Even the slightest wrong mixture can cause problems and premature failure.

Answer: 
I have the same problem and have had it in to the repair shop three times. I finally resorted to taking the carb apart myself to look for a clogged jet. I couldn't find
anything wrong and am just going to switch to another brand.

Answer: 
I find that this blower does take about 1 min. to warm up so you may have to give it some time. Another thing is make sure you have new gas because I find with all new gas power equipment the gas can't be a few months old.

i put the blower away a week ago with no problems. today i try to start it and the part that draws the air through the blower is completely loose. so much so that it wouldn't turn over. it was hitting the blower housing. so i tightened it up the best i could. now when i pull the cord to start it, i think i can hear the piston going up and down makes a knocking noise and won't start. ideas? i only bought this think a year or 2 ago. this is a little ridiculous. where do i take it to get warranty work?

135 mph 390 CFM Gas Blower-DISCONTINUED is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 119.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value and exceeded expectations This has ample power and is probably the best $ per blowing power. It is fairly light and it takes a little bit of effort to start. Since it is light it is a little tricky to get the pull action while hold the machine. But I have no regrets on having bought this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned 4 of them Had an older ECHO version that lasted me over 7 years. I have returned 4 of these newer models due to not starting or running so badly that they are unusable. I have added fuel stabilizers etc. and never made it to the second tank of gas. There is something wrong with the carb design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo Blower Great........ This blower is Great ..Had a name brand before... but it took 10-20 pulls to start..I was spent just starting the thing before blowing...This Echo takes 1-2 pulls, Quiet, Smooth, Way more power than the other brand...Echo all the way for me..I have their gas edger too, same thing, great...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo pb250 Handheld Blower I have 2 of these echo blowers and each one you have to wait a little while for the blowers to warm up but once they're warmed up they run great. If it's cold out side they may take a bit longer to warm up , but I would think is common with any leaf blower.These units are light weight which is a big plus. I take care of 7 to 8 yards in the summer and I really like these echo blowers. I have echo chainsaws, and trimmers and I think the quality of echo products is very good. I can't believe all the bad reviews these blowers are getting. I have even sold a few of these blowers to other people which I would not have done if I didn't think the quality of these blowers were good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and Powerful I love this blower! After a recommendation from my neighbor who had one for about one year now, I took the plunge and bought one even after seeing some poor reviews. I could not be happier. This blower is light and has lots of power. It is a night and day difference on how easy it is to start compared to my old Homlite. I recommend this blower and based on my experience I don't understand how anyone could have a complaint about it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works great, when it works I have had this blower a total of 8 months, it has been in repairs for 2 months of that. There is an issue with the carburetor that can't be adjusted by a homeowner (not typically) and it is denied as warranty coverage by ECHO. The whole reason I got this one was for the warranty. The ECHO certified repair center told me it was common with this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I brought unit home today to replace my trusty old Homelite 200mph blower that went bad. I was initially concerned about the rated airspeed of this model until I started it up. This Echo 250 outperforms my Homelite. My Homelite had a vacuum on it that I really liked, but with this blower you don't need a vacuum because it's so powerful. The blower is well balanced, easy to start, and puts out a lot of volume. It will blow everything from wet leaves to gravel. It will also move things you don't want moved so you have to be careful around your porch/patio. I'm very happy with this blower. As far as starting, make sure the power switch is forward in the ON position, prime the bulb three to four times, flip the choke to full and pull the cord. If it starts to turn over but dies, turn the choke off and it will start on the next pull. The fuel mix is very important, this engine will not tolerate a richer mix than 50:1. I love this blower and highly recommend it.
