Question about Craftsman Garden
Check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. once you get it running hold around mid throttle and slowly adjust the 2 screws until the rpms sound steady. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

Hello navytech79, I ran on to your question while looking for parts to the identical edger which I also acquired recently at a garage sale. I had to tear it down as very dirty with sand and oil, including the carb. I finally got it running today and found out that the L screw is the low speed or idle adjustment, and the H is fuel adjustment for the high speed. I also had a hard time starting as compression is low and required a very hard fast pull on the starter rope.
According to the instructions on the air cleaner door, it says to use full choke until it fires, then go to half choke and when starting, let it warm up for a few seconds prior to moving choke to off. I was able to adjust the carb and on high speed I had to open up the screw needle to approximately two turns from full seating. I takes lots of patience, and good luck. Harv2
