    Ok, Here's the deal, Echo pb 400 blower, ran great since new, just over 1 year old. Saturday, wouldn't start. Tried starting fluid and still no go. has spark, replaced the plug, tried air filter. I am at my wit's end, and do not wanna wait the 2-3 weeks for the dealer to get around to lookin at it.
    Any suggestions?

    P.S. by suggestions, I don't mean the obligatory "you should have bought a.....":)

    Maybe it's the fuel filter.

    when you use the primer bulb can you see fuel in the carb throat?

    Check the kill switch(on and off)check it from switch back,it could be in a bind,or loose.

    The plot thickens!
    Last night I tried to start it, and it cranked, just like normal!!?!?
    I have no idea what it could be. Going to try it out today (crosses fingers)
