Question about Craftsman Lawn Trimmers & Edgers
I have been using it yesterday and is running well. the following day when i am about to use it again, first I added gas. Then I started it ran few seconds then dies down. Sometimes I switch the choked to full half and off. Sometimes it would run on full or off or half but won't stay long.
Now it won't start at all.
That is sooooo right. I had the same problem and after putting the whole machine apart I finally spotted those two screws next to the carbutator, and by adjusting them I managed to get the problem fixed. Note that if the machine turns itself off when you hit the gas, it may be that the air intake or the gas intake are either too open or too close. So, adjust them to your flavor....

Many times with a gas mix, after sitting for a while, the mix separates and gums up the carb. Taking the carb off and soaking it overnight in a parts or carb cleaner and running carb cleaner through the tank and gas lines will cure this.

Check the line head and cable, there may be grass or something like twine twisted between the shaft and housing. If nothing is found there take the spark plug out and see if it will turn over, possibly liquid gasoline has gotten into the cylinder somehow.

check to make sure your kill switch is not shorting and you have the right gap from the coil to the flywheel also if the flywheel sheer pin is damaged in the least this will cause a multitude of problems... it is the timing pin and must be in good shape not damaged or sheered ..any way reply to firstname.lastname@example.org and i will try to help you through this.... DALE good luck and will wait for reply..

It sounds like you need to adjust the fuel mixture screw in the carb. To do this, while it is running adjust the screw in either direction until it runs properly without the choke.

Air fuel mixture problem,,,you need to have the filter pulled out and cleaned. Check fuel system for debris and clean, that includes all the fuel lines and possibly disassemble carb and clean and reassemble.
