Craftsman 32 cc gas trimmer won't start.

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.

SOURCE: Problem with gas trimmer staying started

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....

SOURCE: Gas Trimmer will not stay started

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.

SOURCE: My craftsman 32 cc 2 cycle line trimmer doesn't

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.

SOURCE: 32 cc string trimmer will not run

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.

SOURCE: 32 cc craftsman trimmer starts but will not run at full rpm

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.

Need gas line sketch for craftsman brush wacker 32.cc


Most 2 cycle engines are basically the same. The primer button has two lines coming from it. Gas is actually s.ucked thru the carb and not pushed thru when you prime it. Take a look at the sketch I provided and hopefully you will get yours running again.58fe8f0.jpg

Your gas cap is probably clogged with dirt. The next time you run the trimmer and it begins to stall out, loosen the gas cap, it should start to run good again. Gas cap must be able to breathe in order for gas to flow properly.
