    Need Help. I just tore down and put back together an Echo ES-210 SHRED "N" VAC. The problem I am having is. It starts fine when its cold, but when it warms up it dies. Any help would be appreciated. :confused:

    Change spark plug first then run it until it cuts off and check for spark. If You have a volt meter you can check the coil resistance cold and compare to hot condition when it cuts out.

    Yee Haw... I didn't change the spark plug but cleaned it really good and used a little sand paper. Emptied out all of the gas and put fresh gas in. That seemed to do the trick. Thanks for the help and advice. :drinkup:

    OK, I take it back its not fixed. It was running. for a couple of days, now its not again. It is getting spark, but it appears it is dumping a lot of fuel into the cylinder. I pull the spark plug and it is saturated with fuel and sometimes if I keep pulling it will dump fuel out of the exhaust. I am totaly lost now?? :confused:

    How old is this unit? If it is not new then you should put a new carb kit in it. Have you taken the spark arrestor out and are the exhaust ports clean? Any more info on start or run information?

    :confused: How hard is it to rebuild the carburator? I talked to a guy and he said I may have a stuck pin or something??? :confused:

    Very easy to rebuild the echo. The only thing you must watch carefully is were each parts goes. Take it apart slowly and mark everything.
