Question about Craftsman 25cc Gas Line Trimmer

1 Answer

Runs fine when first start. Dosen't want to start after warmed up.

Have a Craftsman 21cc 2-cycle Weedwacker Model No. 358.798520. Starts perfect when you first start it. Last couple of years after it warms up and you shut it off and it is about impossible to restart. It does start but you have to pull and pull and pull and then once you get it going it runs fine. Changed spark plug and cleaned air filter, what else can I do? Thanks!

    Have you tried fresh gasoline?
    Old gas will do this, and also cause no power when put under stress.

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.

How come weedwacker tries to crank while on choke but when you move lever to 2nd position it tries to crank? but wont


When mine does that I go back and reprime repeating the process. It seems the gas does not feed up fully with the initial priming effort. Once it starts I move the choke lever quickly on way or the other to see if I can keep it running until it gets warmed up. Sometimes I have to adjust the choke setting even after it has run for a while.

What is the problem when my 27cc craftsman weed wacker starts but doesnt stay running


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.

Craftsman 4cycle Weedwacker Starts/Runs but will not spin driveshaft. It starts fine but when I give it gas it kinda bogs down like it is resisting the engines' torque. Help?!


Yes. When you put it back together, the drive shaft didn't get seated properly into its hole. You will have to take the cover off of the front of the trimmer, as well as the shaft. Make sure that not only the drive shaft fits in properly, but make sure the pull rope locks into position with the flywheel. They have to be done simultaneously. It's a little tricky, but you'll get it.

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.
