    HELP!!!! I bought an Echo SRM 230 off ebay and I need help with it. It starts fine and runs at full throttle but as soon as you let off the gas it quits. I just bought a carb rebuild kit and put new diaphragms and a spring and gaskets in it and still the same problem. What's next? Thanks in advance. Harleyboy

    Try adjusting the idle speed screw. We had a Shindawia that wouldn't idle and all it took was a small adjustment counterclockwise of that screw and now it runs fine. Hope that helps.

    Not knowing exactly what you have on your trimmer I would recommend you see your local Echo dealer. There have been some changes with the carburetor. Some have adjustment other's do not. Also if you have an air leak it will run at high speeds but when you come down to idle it will shut off.
