Echo blower will not stay running. Will run on choke. When i turn off choke looses power then quits. I have rebuilt the carb and no change. Anyone have a clue what it chould be? Back pack blower is only 2 years old had carb replaced last year. I have used echo's for about ten years have never had this much trouble with them before.

The carb might need adjusted.

Yeah it sounds like a simple carb adjustment is needed. You may be able to do it with a very tiny screw driver but some models require special adjustment tools depending on the model. What model is it?

You need to remove the screen in the muffler exhaust port it is plugged. We do this on all of our echos. It carbons up and will not let any exhaust out which will not let the machine run properly at all. Try that and see if it fixes it.
