    I have an ECHO GT200R WeedWacker that stops running once I tilt it upright. It starts fine and idles ok. I have replaced the spark plug air filter and fuel filter. What could be causing this?

    You may want to post this thread in the mechanical section..

    Sounds like a carb issue. Try to run some sefoam and see if that clears it up.

    Check to make sure the fuel filter is still on the end of the hose inside the fuel tank. If it's not the hose may be just floating around and not picking up gas...

    The fuel line/primer bulb is probably damaged. I would take the unit to an Echo dealer.
