Question about Craftsman 25cc Gas Line Trimmer
The bulb is okay. The engine just won't start. Can anyone help with some suggestions?
I assume the tank has gas. The first thing to check is for spark at the plug. Remove the plug from engine, connect the plug wire to the plug and ground the side of plug to metal engine housing using pliers with plastic grip handles so you don't get a shock. Pull the starter cord and watch the plug for a spark jump. If you have spark then it is likely a gas starved situation. All these small engines should be run dry before storing in the fall of year to prevent carb from gumming up over the winter. Anyway remove the gas line and drain any gas from carb and drain tank too if it has old gas from last year. Replace fuel line and spark plug. Using new gas and 2 cycle oil, plus an ounce of STP gas treatment, refill tank. Work the primer bulb several times and pull the throttle several times, then pull cord. Keep repeating to see if you get a start.
