Echo leaf blower and vacuum starting problem


Suddenly my trusty Echo leaf blower failed me after many, many years of dependable service.
1: cleaned the carburetor added new gasket kit.nope?
2: checked the fuel lines looked good air cleaner clear ?
3: checked the spark arrester it's clear ?
4: changed the gas/ oil this was good too ?
5: checked the door safety latch to the shredder intake this was tight ?
6: changed the spark plug and checked the spark this was ok too
ok I ordered an new carburetor and fuel line 3 piece kit
after installing these ( still not running )
Now this had to be something easy so I begin my process all over again
I put a piece of tape on the shredder door safety switch closed the door tighten down the knob pulled the cord and brrummmm it started right up.
so I guess the door switch was worn just enough to stop the blower from starting
well 15 to 20 years on this Echo I put is about $45.00 But it's the best out there

I hope this helps someone someday
I love this forum

I moved this to 'tractors and mowers' that's as close to 'small engine repair' as we have--Moderator

I repaired the safety switch
so that the blower shuts down when shredder door is loose or opened
