Need help with Echo Backpack Blower.

boltonrangerDecember 5, 2011

PB4600 is the model. A friend of mine asked me to look at it (no spark)

I'm wanting to get a look at the coil but have never fooled with a backpack blower before (though I know chainsaws and hand held blowers trimmers, etc)

I'm wanting to know the quickest way / how much or little I have to take off and in what order to reach the coil and flywheel.

Any of you fellows disassemble this model before?

Thanks in advance.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Can not help you with the disassembly but, I would first verify the on and off switch first. IMO the weakest link in the system. I don't know what type of switch Echo has? One two position switch ON or OFF (just like light switch you can check with multimeter) or a spring loaded switch that spring loaded in the on position.

either way the switch and wiring connections (including ground) must be verified before you go after the coil.
