Craftsman edger won't start

I have an older model 2.5 horse edger that won't start. I changed the spark plug and air filter and cleaned the carburetor. I put a little gas in the air filter and it ran about 5 seconds. I would appreciate any help. Thank You

Does it have a primer bulb? If so, make sure the bulb is not cracked. Also, make sure the fuel lines are not cracked and the fuel supply line reaches the bottom of the tank. Fuel lines, as silly as it sounds, degrade when exposed to gas for long periods of time. If they are cracked it will draw more air than fuel and not allow the engine to run. You can buy replacement fuel line/primer bulb kits for under $10 at practically any hardware store.

Husqvarna weed eater starts , but blows alot of smoke & then stalls out


Rod, Carb. may need adjusted, try loosening gas cap and start to see if cap vent plugged, there is a in tank fuel filter that you could fish out and remove to see if it is plugged. If still not running remove muffler and clean spark arrester screen, if screen plugged the trimmer will do this.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Craftsman 32cc gas trimmer ran a couple times this season, then will not start. Changed plug, new gas mix, cleaned filter and spark arrestor. No luck. Pull cord is hard to pull in the first foot or so,...


Pull the spark plug and hold the side against the engine while pulling the string. check to see if there is a spark you may need another person to help. Was the air filter oily when you cleaned it? If so you might need to remove and clean the carburetor.

Craftsman part numbers will help on this search. Typically 3 digits separated by a '.' such as 345.45687

I have an old Craftsman 6.75 hp walk behind


Not sure where to look for the model number. But here's a few things to check.
1. If the gas is old (from last year), drain it out of the tank, carb and lines and replace with fresh. Gas can go bad and won't ignite properly after it has been around too long.
2. Replace the spark plug.... sometimes they look good and aren't.
3. Clean the Air filter. Take the filter element out of the housing and give it a good cleaning with compressed air. If it's plugged up with debris and dust, your trimmer won't run.
4. Make sure the oil level is correct. Many of the current motors won't run if the oil is low.
hope this help ya

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.

Craftsman 25cc edger has trouble starting. once started it will run for 5 - 10 minutes and then shut shut off. Will not start again until it cools down. Changed the spark plug , but it has the same pr


Dump the fuel in the tank, get new gas and new oil and start over. Get a carbeurator cleaner additive for the gas as your carb. is dirty resulting in the sporatic operation.

A spray carb. cleaner that you squirt into the air intake by removing the air filter will also work for you. In fact, when you are getting the carb. cleaner get a new air cleaner and a new spark plug. get back and let me know how u make out.
