while using the blower yesterday at full throttle, it stopped as if someone hit the stop switch.

RE: echo 200 blower no start

motorhead1845,

Give and consider some history:

1. Age and hours on blower?

2. Have all fuel lines and primer/purge been checked for cracks/deterioration?

3. Have the carb been checked for restrictions or diaphragm cracks?

4. Good blue spark and have you switched to a known working plug?

5. Have you checked compression with a gage or can not hold compression with a finger?

6. Do you have basic small combustion engine troubleshooting skills from few or a lot of engines?

7. No harm is intended with any question vs getting a feel for your efforts.

8. Please report success or call back if needed.

More Experience and tips are on the way. Good Luck! loger
