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.

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.

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.

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?

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 119 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adjust the carb I bought mine "reconditioned" from HD. When it got it home it would not run over half throttle without bogging out, maybe a bit faster with some choke (this is probably why the first owner returned it). Under the primer bulb is a little black plastic cap, remove it with a tiny screwdriver (get a precision set for a few dollars), warm up engine, and hold trigger full while slowly turning the slotted screw (my 2011 has this screw, not tamper-proof one) until the unit runs at full throttle smoothly. As you turn it you will hear a bog, then a sweet-spot, then bog if turned too much. These machines are adjusted from the factory for the EPA (not Echo's fault), not for performance. Adjustment after break-in, or even sooner is usually needed in most all equiptment. BTW, I searched a bit, older ones have primer bulb on the bottom, mine is on the front, along with the fuel lines on the front. Use only fresh fuel!!!!!! August 1, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seems OK to me I just bought it and used it today and frankly I don't understand the problem these other guys are complaining about with regards to starting and the carburetor. Mine started on the third pull and did an impressive job of blowing dried on and stuck on grass off the driveway and sidewalk. I already had one of their PAS models with both a string trimmer and edger attachment, and three pulls always seems to be the magic number. Oh...and by the way....I mix at 32:1 I used to race dirt bikes years ago, and while 40:1 or even 50:1 will increase horsepower slightly, who are you competing against? I prefer longevity with better lubrication. May 17, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 30, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good Product I went from a 150mph weedeater to a 135mph Echo PB-250 and there is no comparision. THe echo outperforms. Very lightweight and ergonomic. I am left handed with a 1/4 acre lot with a huge 3 garage driveway and lots of sidewalk. The blower got hot but I was using it on full for 20 minutes straight. It removed caked on dirt and rocks that my old blower never moved. I am amazed so far. After adding fuel and priming it I let it sit for a few minutes and it started after about 4 pulls. It takes a minute or 2 to warm up but once it does you will be happy that you did. The throttle is very sensitive which I like and I found myself easing up. i will do a follow up in a few months. September 29, 2010
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by My arm hurts! I bought this leaf blower to save me a little energy. Sadly, I've been given a workout since buying it. It started the first time after about 7 pulls. It does do a wonderful job when it runs I will admit. The next use required about 25 pulls to start. When it finally got going, it once again worked extremely well. So today, I decided to blow the leaves off my deck. Countless pulls on the cord did not produce the desired effect (a running blower). I soon realized that I could have swept the leaves off the deck with a broom with less energy. It's funny... my broom has always started on the first pull! Go figure. November 19, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo blower PB-251 After researching many reviews of various brands by consumers I decided to purchase the Echo PB-251. I used to do commercial mowing and previously utilized a STIHL commercial grade gas blower which was powerful but noisy and literally vibrated itself apart. The Echo is much more quiet running with virtually no vibration even at max speed. Setup was simple enough for any grade school kid who can follow the directions. It started with the third short tug and runs great. The ECHO PB-251 has moves more air than the STIHL did and is twice as quiet. For the money I am thoroughly impressed. Good product, ECHO! August 7, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by First day, but works really well... Bought this blower 2 hours ago. Assembly was super-easy - just slipping the blower pipe together. Put gas/oil mix in and primed the carb per manual. I yanked on the pull cord about 10 times and no start! I tried priming again and kept yanking. No start. Anyways, about 25 to 30 pulls later - It fired up! It works great - I wish it the blower tube was flared at the bottom like the more expensive models - I cannot seem to control the direction I am blowing stuff away in. Maybe they have an extension. I registered on echo's site easily. I hope this thing works well. I will update this review in 90 days or so. May 16, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo Review Bought this a few weeks ago due to its reputation concerning reliability. I obviously can't comment on reliability at this time, but can tell you it starts up very easy (every time) and appears to be built & designed very well. I would have prefferred that it had more power for pushing large piles of leaves in the fall - but works great for everyday lawn use/cleanup. I'll have to wait until the fall to see how it performs on the leaves. It would have been nice if they provided a flattened nozzle attachement to increase wind pressure - however, you have to buy the more expensive model to get this. August 21, 2010
