Question about Craftsman Garden
What is the model number of the saw?
It may as simple as a tank vent that is clogged. I have seen this on Poulan saws, and many of the new Craftsman saws are rebranded Poulans.
If the saw has a tiny hole in the center of the fuel cap, try this test. Engage the chain brake, turn the saw on its side so the cap is facing upward, loosen the cap slightly, and start it while a strong helper holds it on a workbench. If it runs normally (don't heat up the clutch drum while the brake is engaged!), the tank vent needs to be cleaned or cap replaced. If it still won't run correctly, it is time to diagnose the carburetor and other areas of the engine.
Let me know if you have any luck getting it going.

The first thing to check for is spark at the plug. Remove it and reconnect the wire--lay the plug body on the cylinder head or other metal part. Pull the engine through--the spark should be blue and snappy. If nothing, make sure the ignition switch is set to run and try a new clean plug. If still nothing, you need to check the ignition system. Go to: searspartsdirect.com and enter the complete model number of the saw (minus the decimal point). A series of drawings will appear, select the ignition layout. If this is a newer saw, the ignition will be a self-contained module mounted just outside of the flywheel. The first check before buying a new module is to remove the grounding wire that goes to the switch, and try to get spark again. If still nothing, and the pole gap between the module and the flywheel magnets (set with a thin business card for a clearance gauge) appears to be correct, order a new ignition module. Once you get spark, the other major problem is usually the fuel system. Hope this helps!
