Echo PAS 265 won't start
I have a PAS265 that just quit in the middle of using it and won't start again. It is fairly new in that I bought it a couple years ago, but didn't use it hardly at all until this year. It probably has less than 20 hours on it.
I was using it to weed-wack, and the power starting diminishing. When I let off the gas, it died and would not fire again.
I've try opening the gas cap to make sure the vent was good. Sprayed starter fluid in the carb. Sprayed starter fluid in the spark plug hole. None of these get the motor to even slighly kick over. I tried leaving the spark plug loose after spraying fluid in the spark plug hole. I pulled the start rope and saw a flame so the spark is there.
I don't think the switch is bad because of the way it quit, and because I saw the spark. If the fuel filter were plugged, starter fluid in the carb would have caused a turn over.
Any ideas what may be wrong? Sure appreciate any ideas..
