    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.....":)

    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)
