    Guys, I have a 1 year old Echo 210 trimmer that will not start. I'm getting spark and the plug is wet so I'm assuming its getting gas. When I try and start the trimmer, It sounds like its getting no spark or fuel. Any Ideas.

    Will it fire if you put a squirt of stating fluid in the air filter?
    If yes, your not getting fuel.

    If no, then change the spark plug it's cheap and it may be fouled.

    let us know how that goes and we can go from there.

    Stick a new plug in it then pull the air filter and give it a shot of flammable carb/choke cleaner and see if will fire. If it will run a very short time on it then you likely have a fuel related problem. You may also want to check the intank fuel filter to make sure it is allowing sufficient fuel flow.

    I thought Echo had a 3 year warranty on homeowner equipment so you may want to check with the dealer before you tear anything down. If you bought it at a Big Box Store--good luck.

    echo's loose the vacum at the black plug, 3 hose connection to the fuel tank.

    it's $11. to replace it.

    you can also pump the fuel bulb and see if you have suction there, if you don't see the fuel moving in the bulb when you release it, i would check the seal, fuel lines and filter, it's a cheap fix and it will run like brand new if thats it.

    Good luck

    Thanks guys for the help. I will try it all and see what works. I did notice some cracking by the three gas lines, but when I primed the ball I notice gas bubbles going through.. Now that I think about it, the 210 model mite be my blower. Either way I will give it a shot. Thanks Again and I will post my findings.

    Don't waste your time with the silicone. You can buy a new tank grommet for a couple of bucks and with new fuel lines you're back to new.

    Well replaced the plug and that didn't fix it. I sprayed starter fluid in the air filter and it fired right up. Fuel grommet and line next..

    Take the carb apart and clean it up with carb cleaner. Souldn't be any damage on parts after only a year.
