Weedwacker stalls when given power

Craftsman weedwacker tuned up with fresh gas mix, new .020 gaped plug, clean air filter and clean spark arrester screen. Starting procedure is to quickly press accelerator after warm up. It then idles. When accelerating, no matter how slowly, the engine will quit before reaching peak RPM. When new, it would accelerate properly but not idle after decelerating. It is now 11 months out of warranty.

Can someone help me?

Thank you

SOURCE: craftsman weedwacker model 358.795160 will not

First, check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

If they are o.k., then you will need to disassemble the carburetor again. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. You should be able to see daylight through it. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the cleaning doesn't work, then buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

SOURCE: craftsman 32cc would not idle

If you are certain that you have correcting gaped the plug then the next step is to readjust the low end idle carburetor. If you look you should see two holes in the plastic cover that lead to the flow adjustment screws they may even be out in the open. If they are not labeled H and L (the L is the one you want), check your manual for the correct one. A good place to start is turning the screw all the way in then backing it out 1 1\2 turns. Then check it. If you still have problems do 1\4 turns out. After about one full turn from that you might want to consider taking the carburetor off and removing the float bowl or the bottom for a good cleaning. A sticking float could cause problems with your fuel flow.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: TB70ss will not accelerate

Change the spark plug..
Change the fuel filter..
Check the fuel line for crack/splits..
Make sure the primer ball is sealed and not succking in air while running..
If it still acts up - it might need the carb might need to be rebuilt..
If it sat for a long time - the fuel will shellac in the carb and provent it from working properly..

Good luck..

Craftsman weedwacker won't start.


If you are happy the carb is now ok and the plug gets wet with fuel, then either there is no spary ( remove the plug, place against the cyliner, away from any fuel source near the plug hole, crank the engine and see if there is a spark ) if there is a spark, then it could be a sheared flywheel key knocking the ignition timing out.

My weedWacker don't star I change the spark nothingh happen


Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old. Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage. May need to clean or replace carburetor.
