Question about Craftsman 25cc Gas Line Trimmer

1 Answer

Craftsman 32cc Line Trimmer pull start will not engage engine.

I actually have two craftsman line trimmers that you can pull the cord and feel very little resistance and nothing happens. It seems like the clutch will not engage the engine any longer. How can I repair this myself. The first time this occured I took my line trimmer to Sears for a repair. They repaired it but it only lasted three times and then it was back to not engaging again.

Replace the spark plug, clean the air filter and fill the tank with new fuel at the correct fuel oil ratio. Had the same problem last year. Tried to cheat with year old gas.

SOURCE: Craftsman 32cc Line Trimmer pull start will not engage engine.

With a flashlight, look into the area just in front of the pull rope. You'll see the fins on the flywheel. Turn the flywheel with a small screwdriver until you see a bracket mounted on it. There's is one on each side. While holding the flywheel still with another screwdriver, spray penatrating oil on each one and work them back and forth a few times. You'll feel them loosen up. They are spring loaded and should snap back into place. Hope you can understand this. Good luck.

32cc trimmer stars but wont continue running


Hi donald, if your trimmer is starting but not running it sounds as if the problem is lying with either one of two things. Firstly locate the air filter and make sure it's clean. If it is then the problem is most certainly with the carbrettor. It may need the gaskets replacing to allow the suction from the engine to pull the fuel through.

Repairing fuel line on craftsman 32cc weed trimmer.


Cut the end of the line at a sharp angle. Spray WD-40 on the line and fuel tank hole. Slowly screw the line in the tank far enough so you can connect the fuel filter if you are replacing that line. If not just push the line into the tank if you have a two line system. Remember on the fuel primer, the long tip has the line going to the tank, and the short tip has the fuel line going to the carb.
