Question about Craftsman 25cc Gas Line Trimmer
WILL START BUT NOT RUN UNLESS CHOKE IS ON.
Posted by Anonymous on
OK, lets slow down a bit. First look at the primer bulb of the carb. Depending on the type, there should be 2 or 4 screws right by the primer bubble. Carefully, remove the screws. The top section with the bubble and one fuel line will come off. In between them is a gasket and diaphragm. Look at the lower half and you will see a very small screen. Get some carb cleaner and spray by the screen but not too close. This is where most of the dirt collects. You might need to remove dirt by hand. Then close the carb. back up. Place gas in the tank, but leave the cap off, so you can look inside while you press the bubble slowly. You should be able to watch gas flowing back into the tank at a steady stream. Then place cap on and follow the start up instructions. Get back to me when you can.

SOURCE: replacing fuel line
Have you removed the carb. and tried to clean it? If not, get the numbers off the carb. and pick up a repair kit for it. Dismantle it, clean all orifices, remove the low and high speed needles (may only have one and count number of turns each one is at by screwing in until lightly seated then remove ) and clean passages with carb. cleaner. Reassemble, install, adjust initially with original settings and start. Adjust from here. Little carbs. are very "touchy" when adjusting.

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.

No, it will not. Don't take the fuel mix screws out, it's not necessary.
You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. Reassemble and start.
(NOTE: If the cleaning doesn't work, then buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts.)
If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Sounds like somewhere you have a air leak. Most likely it's somewhere near the carburetor intake or maybe the carb itself. Could be a line from the primer if it has one and i do believe it should that could be leaking or loose. Good luck.
