SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: this is on a trimmer edger model # 536.796536

You can get rebuild kits from just about any lawn mower/small engine repair shop around. However unless your trimmer has had harsh treatment it most likely only needs a good cleaning. They are pretty simply to disassemble.
Remove the carb from the motor and get a clean spot on a bench or work table. You will need some solvent to soak it in, lacquer thinner works great because it will take care of any gas that may have turned to varnish during storage.
Remove the bottom float bowl attached by the four screws. Inside you will see the float. It is held in place by a pin that can be pushed out. Be careful not to lose the small wire clip that holds the valve pin to the float. After you have the float and valve out let everything soak over night. Using a small screwdriver (cheap jewelers drivers work best) wrap a piece of scottch pad or fine steel wool around the end and twist it into th port where the valve was. If you have a compressor blow it out the other ports and holes or a can of brake clean if no compressor and reassemble. It's also a good idea to clean out the fuel tank.
This will take care of 80% of problems with small engines. Any other trouble is most likely an issue it being worn out.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: craftsman Trimmer/Edger 4.0 HP Engine races...

Most likely, the mechanical governor is damaged inside the engine. If you have tools, a sense of adventure, and lots patience, this can be replaced for a modest cost in parts.
If not, take it to a reputable repair shop.
The governor replacement involves engine removal, opening the crankcase, lots of parts-cleaning, and attentive reassembly.
Would be happy to help you if you decide to tackle this repair.
Hope this helps.
