Echo PB 2100 Leaf Blower will not speed up

Blower starts, idles and runs at medium speed but will not reach max speed. The throttle opens fully but the RPM stays at medium and sounds bogged down.
Just put in a new spark plug and cleaned the air filter at the end of last season.

    I am having the same problem with my blower. I asked around and was told that I may have a vaccum problem with it as the blower is not getting enough gas to guna max speed.

    You got it......that was the problem. The screen was a mess, I had to scrape the thick stuff off then soak in Lacquer Thinner and brush it clean. Runs GREAT now.

    I had the same problem. It was a tiny crack in my float bowl primer pump bowl. I replaced it and it works great now. The Problem; The gas has too much Ethanol and breaks up rubber. Make sure the gas you use is no more then 10% Ethanol in small 2 stroke engines especially. Ethanol helps the smog issue and does not harm cars except worse mileage. The more in gas, the worst mileage and terrible on small engines. I hear, Shell, Mobile & Chevron are around 10% which is normal but still not good for mileage in cars and smaller gardening engines.

Rebuild the carb, costs $10 for the kit and a monkey could do it. You need a phillips screwdriver.

No fuel in primer bulb on my echo PB 2100 blower

The primer bulb pulls fuel from the carb into the bulb and dumps back to the tank, so either the tubes are not connected too the correct conections on the carb, or there is bno fuel getting to the carb from the tank ( fuel filter ) or if the primer is on the carb itself there in a red one way valve under the bulb which maybe faulty.

I have an echo gas powered leaf blower, model pb251. it will start and idol, but wont run any faster than that, and throttle cable seems to be ok.

I just fixed my Echo PB 2100 with the same issue. It would start, run, all throttle openings OK but would not rev-up. It was a dirty/clogged screen on the muffler. Scraped the thick tar off then used Lacquer Thinner to soak it clean. Blower works better than ever now....
