Question about Craftsman 4 Cycle Blower/Vac
My craftsman leaf blower after runnig well it stop working ,now I can start it. I can't pull the rope it is stuck!
You might have damaged the "spring re-wind" or the cord is jambed. If you know how to disassemble the housing (see owner's manual), then check to see if the cord is stuck, then manually re-wind it and pull it slowly and then let it rewind slowly. Do not attempt to remove the spring housing unless you have several hours to spare to rewind the spring, as it will "unspring" with great force - all over the place. Zing! The only other solution, of course, is to take it back to Sears for repair. Yuck. Have had several in the shop for other reasons that couldn't be easily DIY repaired - time after time.
Most ****-smen products cause more headaches than they prompt smiles of joy. I have pretty much determined that the manufacturers of ****-smen (who ever they are) plan it that way. Most home-owner products of this sort only last for 3-4 years, if you're lucky. I have also tried other brands; none are much to rave about. You could always do what I do, if I don't have any warrantee time left, or an extended agreement; give it a nice funeral (or run over it with a tank and send the remains to the CEO of Sears) and spend the money for a new one (any brand - even Craps-men) or use a rake..... :(
If you do get it to work, try pulling the cord with less force and NEVER let it "spring back" by letting go of the handle. Let is rewind as you hold it. GOOD LUCK!
