Brand new Echo SRM 260 and PE 260 both started and ran at dealer. Day later neither will start. I have used Echo equipment and know about the prime and choke and so on. However, I have been pulling and pulling on these things and not so much as a rummble. Nothing and after 20 or so pulls raw fuel comes out of exhaust. Call dealer, they say take out spark plug and clear flood. Uh, I didn't spend my money to take out spark plugs. What am I doing wrong? I put a similar post up about a week ago and now i am still in the same position. Neither unit will work and this is after I already exchanged the trimmer. Anyone else have a similar problem or recommend a brand that will start within three pulls. Funny, my 3 year old echo still starts within 3 pulls?
