Craftsman gas 25cc weedwacker starts, runs a few secs, then dies

I have a craftsman gas convertable 25cc weedwacker, model number 358-795590. It's starts just fine, runs for a few seconds and dies. I try holding in the throttle but that doesn't help. The primer seems fine. Suggestions?

Try leaving the chokey partially engaged. Operate it this way for a few minutes until the engine is thoroughly heated then move to the run position. If this does not work return it.

CRAFTSMAN WEEDWACKER 316-791860, WILL NOT START. HAS SPARK, FUEL LINES FILL UP, WAS RUNNING FINE, DIED, STARTED NEXT AM, RAN 5 MINS THEN DIED AND WOULDN'T RESTART


Two things which may be the problem: 1) carb need to be rebuilt or replaced, and 2) you need a new spark plug. The carb with shipping is around $50.00 from sears ( http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Craftsman-Parts/Grass-trimmer-weed-wacker-Parts/Model-3167918602008/0247/1503820/P0805032/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= ) A sparkplug can be had at any small engine repair shop and most auto parts stores for less than $5.00 Start with the cheap solution... Also make certain you have fresh gas and that the oil mix is correct.

Machine will start but won't stay running. give some gas and it runs for a couple of seconds and then dies. i did replace the spark plug but it is doing the same thing. it is a 25cc craftsman weedwacker...


I had a similar problem and it was simple to fix. I hope yours is the same. The line going into the gas tank is not far enough down in the tank.Once you prime it with the primer bulb , it will run till that gas is gone. No fuel from the tank is getting to the carburetor. If you've replaced the fuel lines recently, this may be your problem. If not, try cleaning the fuel tank and the carburetor. Hope this helps.

The weedwacker dies when I squeeze the throttle trigger


You need to clean the carburetor. Remove and disassemble carb. Use a den Tek Brush, (used to clean between teeth), to clean the small portals in carb. Use a carb. cleaner while cleaning. Make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debris. The smallest of paticles can cause the carb. not to run right. Reassemble the carb. and try starting. If there is no change, then you will need to buy a carb. kit for your trimmer. Replace all appropriateparts: gaskets, diaphragm, needle valve, and the small screen.
