The needle valve is sticking open. The carb needs cleaning and diaphragm replaced. Probably best taken to a shop unless you have experience with diaphragm carburetors. Dwain

Why is gas leaking from the air filter


This is a carb flooding issue, there will be a rubber tipped needle in the carb, if this is not seating properly fuel will leak through the air filter, you need to go into the carb, check the metering lever height and replace the needle, unfortunatly it is not possible to replace the needle seat so if it continues to leak after fitting a new needle it will be a replacment carb.

What type of gas to use in a craftsman edger 358.773110


FUELING ENGINE This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline must be mixed with a good quality 2-cycle air*cooled engine oil. We recommend Craftsman brand oil. Mix gasoline and oil at a ratio of 40:1 (A 40:1 ratio is obtained by mixing 3.2 ounces of oil with 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline). DO NOT use automotive oil or boat oil. These oils will cause engine damage. When mixing fuel, follow instructions printed on container. Once oil is added to gasoline, shake container momentarily to assure that the fuel is thoroughly mixed. Always read and follow the safety rules relating to fuel before fueling your unit.

Looking for the part number of the air filter on craftman edger model # 53685648


On the Sears Parts Direct, they show no air filter. I would recommend taking the filter to a small engine shop so they can match it up or just go to Home Depot and match it up with one of their filters they may have in the lawn and garden. Lowes has a small engine section too, most of their stuff is Briggs and Tecumseh. Here is your parts diagram, with no air filter shown.

I have a 1999 sears edger # 536-796525 model but wonder what Make engine is it? Bought it used so no manual and no engine name on it, small about 3 HP. Spark plug on top of old fashioned looking motor...


That is a sufficient amount of oil. Even the more modern horizontal crank engines have no dipstick and are checked that way. Anywhere in the threaded area and up is considered sufficient. It is great fun trying to find a manual from just 11 short years ago! The sites have manuals for almost all their current equipment, no luck finding yours yet. I am including a parts breakdown with diagrams, pricing and availability for your convenience from Sears. The manual is no longer available (part #73)

The high speed needle valve needs adjusting and it takes a special splined tool to adjust it. I currently am trying to find where I can purchase the tool to adjust the high and low carburator screws.
