I ordered the whole carburetor kit, a brush kit, and a 2-cycle socket kit, so I'll have them on hand the next time!

In the meanwhile, I'll go ahead and disassemble the carburetor and clean it with the Gumout Carburetor cleaner.  Let it dry out and practice reassembling it with the video. Who knows?  It might actually start and work properly, and I'll have a WHOLE replacement kit on hand.

And, I can scout around for a used Echo trimmer at a good price.  Can't have too many string trimmers on my property!

I will look into this, my wife gets these spam calls daily numerous times.  I don't get them but maybe 1 a week.  One thing I do that the wife doesn't do is if the number isn't on my contact list, I don't answer it.  If it is a legit number they will leave a message.

GG, while you have it apart you should change the fuel lines too. It's only a few bucks and any local shop some have some on hand. They sell it by the foot and you won't need more than 2'.

Good Luck with it!!

Welcome to the world of growing in a High Tunnel.

I went to their site and it looks like a well made tunnel!

Gymgirl, when you purchase the carburetor kit, I would recommend a spark plug also. I have found through the years, that the spark plug is the most common failure on a 2 stroke engine.

Gymgirl....Good luck with it. Those videos are so good.....have fixed a few things with them but nothing too complicated.....but I am not a good fix it person, so the fact that I accomplished some fixes proves how worthwhile the video's are!! ;D

Took the day off to do garden stuff, and managed to mow the front lawn before the rain started.  A neighbor got my Echo 225 started by pouring out half of my mixed fuel and adding 1/2 of his 50:1 premixed formula.  It ran fairly well as long as I held it horizontally.  But, soon as I tipped it straight up to edge, it lost power and would die out. 
 
Was worn out after wrestling with it all over again, and came in and went to bed.  Woke up and started watching more repair vids.  I'm thinking the problem is either the fuel filter inside the fuel tank, or that screen inside the muffler part is clogged up.  I found one excellent vid that shows carburetor RE-assembly very, very clearly. 

So, now, I get to wait on the mailman.  Seems none of the local box stores sell the carburetor kits at reasonable prices, if at all...

And, I am not about to turn my trimmer over to HD to charge me an arm and a leg to replace $17 worth of parts...I'll try to do it myself.
