    i have an echo srm 210. its about 2 years old. just recently whenever it gets good and hot it will shock you. at first i thought it had a hairline crack in the plug so i changed that to no avail. it only shocks when hot. can anyone steer me in the right direction as to fix this? thanks.

    there is a crack somewhere in the plug wire. It may be hard to see. Wrap the area in electrical tape.

    Might also check the two kill wires to be sure they are connected good and no insulation off them. Ours do that on various model, not sure what is going on thought it might be the plug cap breaking down somehow.

    I know i joined this thread way late,but a tidbit..try checking things like this when it's dark outside to see where the fire arcs from the rubber..i did this on my chevy at night and presto,you could see immeadiatly which sparkplug wire was the faulty one.
