Needs a carb kit. Go to any small engine repair shop or to a sears outlet store that has a good craftsman parts section. They will sell you a carb kit for around $20 bucks.
Your carb most likely needs a new needle valve and the float adjusted. There is a good chance that there is **** in the bowl as well. These carbs are easily rebuilt and it should only take you about 1 hour to put a new kit in it. Everything you need will be in the kit. If you need further assistance. Go into google and search for tech information for that carb. The name will be on the bowl or on the side of the carb body.
I hope this helps

When you cleaned the carb did you clean out the metering jet with a needle and blow out. It only takes a tiny spec of dirt to raise hell with these small carbs.

You drained the fuel but sounds like you did not run fuel out of carb. the carb is probably just clogged either take off carb and clean thoroughly or just try to take off the screw on the float bowl and clean it there are little holes on it that are most likely plugged up. Good Luck...

It could be the gas you are running in it, if it contains ethenol use some stabil in this type of gas. Ethenol attracts moisture and will cause the carbs. on small engines to gum up and get a fouled. I run 100% gas in everything. It may cost a little extra now but it will save you alot more in the long run!

Craftsman mini tiller starts good but will not idle nor run fast


i'm having the same problem. cleaned carb but didn't help. I found that if I spray starting fluid on the gasket between the carb and the motor it speeds up. I'm going to try to find a new gasket, I can't tighten it anymore.
Good luck

Engine starts easily, but doesnt stay running. removed fuel cap, still the same, pulled off fuel line, its not plugged. With the air cleaner off if I spray in starting fluid it keeps running, but will stop...


sounds like a fuel problem in the gas tank or carb. If bad gas or debris gets into the carb fuel bowl, this will fowl up or clog the jets after you start to run your engine. you need to remove your carb and clean the fuel bowl and jets. use a jet carb cleaner to do this. without knowing what type of engine, make sure all ur jets are clean. use a fine wire to insure they are clean and put te carb back together. also check and clean the fuel valve area of the carb, the fuel line, and the fuel tank. never use last years gas and always run your equipment out of gas before you store it for the winter.

Craftsman Edger 536-797520 is leaking gas from the air filter


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

Craftsman tiller leaks gas


could just be the gasket under the screw that holds the bowl on needs the nut tightened a little, or like mine I put just a little gas resistant form a gasket under the seal on the underside of the bowl and retighted now no leaks.

good luck
