Sears sells what they call a "carb kit" P/N 545081857. It\'s a complete carb for $30 + shipping + tax. I\'n throwing near $50 after a $90 blower that didn\'t make it a full year. Not to mention that I spent half a day calling uninformed (but personable) clerks at Sears asking them about gasket kits for a carb. They just make up stories, like "bring it in, they will know what to do in the store" or "They have the parts in the department"

Hello,

Most Probably the problem lies in the adjustment of the carburettor. There are two needles in the carb one for lowend adjustment and one for high end adjustment. Your lowend adjustment seems fine. The highend needle needs to be adjusted. Following are some very detailed procedures for adjusting these types of carbs

If your machine has a carb other than a "Walbro" dont worry the procedures are same. I am sure if your engine has not completed its life span this will solve your problem.

You may need to do two more additional things.

First, check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

If they are o.k.,then you will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Usea Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the cleaning doesn't work, then buy a carb. kit abd replace all appropriate parts.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Most likely low compression caused by stuck piston rings or a scored piston and cylinder. This unit was made by Poulan and they have had an epidemic of this problem. The solution is to tear the unit down and put in new piston rings. Before you install the new rings you need to get a sheet of glass and some 600 grit wet dry sand paper. Sand each ring down about .002 to .003 and reinstall. This should solve your problem as long as you have good fire and the piston and cylinder is not scored.

I have a Craftsman 794774 leaf blower/vac w/25cc engine that won't start.


Many of these small blowers have an alloy key moulded into the flywheel, if this has sheared it will knock the ignition timing out, and will never run.

My blower sounds like the carburator or something is loose and it won't start easily and when it does it won't stay on or doesn't have good power


With the unit off, grab the carburetor and see if anything is moving. Sound like the cylinder may be loose. Before tightening cylinder screws check if the gasket is damage. If yes then change gasket.

I have a Craftsman 2-cycle blower/vac and its only 3 years old and have changed out the spark plug and fresh mixed gas and still won't start. I need some help anyone know?


Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old. Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage. May need to clean or replace carburetor.
