Craftsman 4 cycle weedwacker will not shut off

Doe anyone know how to fix this problem? It has an off button, which used to work, but now it doesn't. The only way I can turn it off now, is by pulling the spark plug wire. I'd like to fix this, cause I've been shocked a few times turning it off.

Hi Vincent
In order for the switch to work it has to ground out the coil when turned off...
Sounds like one of the wires came off of your switch or the switch is faulty.
Check to see if any of the wires came loose, if not then replace the switch.

SOURCE: Runs fine when first start. Dosen't want to start after warmed up.

Have you checked or Changed the Fuel Filter.
It will be in the tank hooked to the fuel line. I suggest a small pair of Hemostats for this job.

SOURCE: Craftsman weedwacker 358.791070 suddenly stopped

could have been caused by any number of thing's,
take the recoil assembly off and try pulling the rope out while holding the center of the rope spool just enuff to prevent it from popping out in case there's nothing holding it there.
rewinding the rope is alot easier than rewinding the recoil spring Trust Me.. lol

If you can sense that the shaft is turning, then the valves are sticking open.

I have a craftsman weedwacker, I don't know how to


Most weedwackers are 2 cycle (stroke) engines, meaning the gas and oil are mixed together before you pour it into the gas tank. If it's a 4 cycle engine it appears there is no dip stick or convenience way to check the oil, you can only replace it. Here's a youtube video that may help.

What oil do you use in the four cycle motor/ 29cc


Generally speaking, if there is a place on a gas-powered device that is labeled "gas" & a separate location labeled "oil" than you will need to use a 4-cycle oil for that machine. If there is just a place to put gas, you would use a 2-cycle oil; however, you would need to read the directions/manual to find out the correct proportion of oil to use, because you will have to MIX the appropriate amount of oil with the correct amount of gas, making a oil/gas solution that you would use for that specific device.
