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. I have the very same problem with my flymo xlt 3000 multitool

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.

The head won,t turn


you will need to pull the head off, as it sounds like the cable is off. there should be four bolts/screws, there maybe some in the middle also, gently remove the head(this is the top of the trimmer where the pull cord is, once you have it separated you can turn the cable by hand and the line feeder should rotate, if it does then look inside the head and make sure it is still square and not rounded. or you can pull the line feeder off and pull the cord and see if the cable rotates, whichever you feel comfortable with trying. Good Luck Tim

Hi have a craftsman line trimmer 40cc 4 cycle model 021032 and i can pull the start rope but it won't start. It feels like its supposed to latch on something but it can't. Can it be that the starter pulley...


You can find parts breakdowns for the unit HERE, it also has the part numbers in case you need to order anything. It looks like the starter engages the flywheel directly. I have not taken one of these apart so I cannot give you the best advice.

How do i remove cluch so i can replace spring and pull cord


Depending on your model, the screw to take off the clutch will probably be at the center of the clutch stem. If its there it's probably a torx screw.

My craftsman 32 cc 2 cycle line trimmer doesn't


Check the line head and cable, there may be grass or something like twine twisted between the shaft and housing. If nothing is found there take the spark plug out and see if it will turn over, possibly liquid gasoline has gotten into the cylinder somehow.
