Trimmer Repair – Replacing the Carburetor (Echo Part # A021001692)


Hi, I’m Mark from eReplacementParts.com. In this video I’m going to show you how to
replace the carburetor on an echo trimmer. The carburetor creates the proper air fuel
mixture for your trimmer’s engine. It also consists of the engine’s throttle.Because
of the very small openings in the carburetor, it can easily become plugged if any debris
gets past the trimmer’s air filter or fuel filter. A carburetor can be rebuilt and it’s typically
more cost-effective than replacing it. If you’re uncomfortable with rebuilding your
carburetor or maybe it’s so badly plugged that it can be rebuilt, replacing it is an
option and we’re going to show you how.Carburetors as well as many other parts can be found on
our website. Let’s get started. I’ll begin by removing the air filter cover
and the air filter. Before we remove any of the fuel lines from
either the carburetor or the fuel tank, you want to make sure that you’ve drained the
gas from the fuel tank otherwise it will leak as the fuel in the tank tends to be slightly
pressurized.I’ve already drained the fuel so we can go ahead and move on. Now remove the two screws that secure each
piece of the intake assembly to the engine. There’s the air filter base and the air filter
bracket. Now remove the throttle cable and the fuel
lines from the carburetor. If the intake gasket hasn’t already removed
itself like mine did, it’s likely stuck to either the backside of the carburetor or up
against the isolator. Now replace the carburetor. I’ll attach the incoming fuel line
and the fuel return line.Now reinstall the throttle cable. First I’ll open up the throttle and thread
the cable into the connection on the top of the carburetor. Next I’ll place the nut and it’s holder on
the carburetor and tighten up the secondary nut with a wrench.Now I can reassemble all
of the parts in the air intake assembly. I’ll insert the screws through the bracket
then the brackets and screws through the air cleaner base, thread the screws through the
carburetor and last I’ll install the intake gasket.Now, this whole assembly will go back
onto the motor. I’ll just install the air filter and air filter
cover. Now you know how to replace the carburetor
on your echo trimmer. If you found this video helpful, be sure to
