SOURCE: Craftsman weedwacker won't start

When the Craftsman Weedwacker starts in idle and then stalls and the primer bulb will not fill with gasoline or will not pop back after being pushed in, then you have a blockage within the carburetor. The bulb is intended to **** fuel into the supply line, to prime it. To solve the problem, remove the carburetor, open the side that has ONE screw holding it (not the side with four small screws), remove all the two lines remembering how they were attached (the feeder line from the fuel tank attaches to the straight copper tube and the tube going to the bulb intake side attaches to the bent copper tube) and blow out the material blocking the fuel flow inside the carburetor. Then after replacing the carburetor, press the bulb and it should **** and discharge fuel easly. I have had two of these and the fuel path within the carburetor clogs easly. Jim Hart

SOURCE: repairing fuel line on craftsman 32cc weed trimmer.

Cut the end of the line at a sharp angle. Spray WD-40 on the line and fuel tank hole. Slowly screw the line in the tank far enough so you can connect the fuel filter if you are replacing that line. If not just push the line into the tank if you have a two line system. Remember on the fuel primer, the long tip has the line going to the tank, and the short tip has the fuel line going to the carb.

SOURCE: Craftsman 32cc Weedeater -- need fuel line diagram

The smaller diameter line (fuel supply) goes from the fuel tank (w/filter) to the carb body. Another larger line (purge line) goes from carb body to the right nipple on the primer bulb. Another large line (return line) goes from the left nipple of the primer bulb into the fuel tank. co0mpleting the purge circuit. This info pertains to my 2006 Craftsman 32cc with Zama carb.

The smaller diameter line (fuel supply) goes from the fuel tank (w/filter) to the carb body. Look carefully at the 2 nipples on the carb. You can tell one is slightly larger than the other. Another larger line (purge line) goes from carb body to the right nipple on the primer bulb. Another large line (return line) goes from the left nipple of the primer bulb into the fuel tank. completing the purge circuit. This info pertains to the Craftsman 32cc with Zama carb and may work on the 25cc model as well.

Fuel want pull into bulb on my craftsman 27cc weedwacker #711200


There are 2 fuel lines going into the back of the primer bulb. One line goes from the back of the bulb into the fuel tank, and the other goes from the back of the bulb into the carburetor. I believe that the line that goes into the fuel tank has disconnected from the back of the bulb. You will need to remove the bulb, find the line that dropped off of the bulb and into the tank, and reconnect the line to the back of the bulb.

that line should be longer, it contains the filter which is the pick up, and should rest inside the tank fully,, see if its possible to pull that line farther into the tank, its not going to start until the primer bulb fills

No gas getting from the gas tank to the carb. replaced hoses and filter already. can not even draw gas with primer button.


You either need a new primer bulb (leaking air) or you have the fuel lines routed wrong. Here is the correct fuel line routing just in case:
Small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then pushes any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Again, on the primer bulb, the longer nipple has a line going directly from it to the tank. The shorter nipple on the bub has a line from it going to the metering chamber side of the carb.If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank

Craftsman 21cc weedwacker, need fuel line diagram


This is an ongoing issue for users, and rightfully so. Small diameter line out of fuel tank (has filter in-tank on end) connects to the side of the carburetor that has the fuel pump....that is the cover without the hole in it. Other larger diameter fuel line out of tank connects to the longer nipple on the external purge/primer bulb. The bulb "pulls" fresh fuel from the fuel tank to the carb and then out of the carb to itself, where it then pushes any air/old fuel back into the fuel tank. The remaining larger diameter fuel line in this setup goes from the metering chamber (has cover with writing on it and a vent-hole) side of the carburetor to the smaller nipple on the purge/primer bulb. Years ago on 2-stroke trimmers, primers were not even used,...you choked the carb with a slide lever and gravity let fuel enter the carb from above...a few pulls, a "pop"...slide it off of choke and away you went.
If the purge/primer bulb is on top of the carb...small line from carb body to small hole in tank with filter. Larger diameter line goes from the bulb on the fuel pump side of the carb to the larger hole in the fuel tank where the line is held in place with a nylon nipple connector that keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.

Routings of fuel line to Poulan 14 inch chainsaw Model 2025


No drawings or pix, but will try for description--the line from the tank that has the fuel filter is the main fuel source which goes to the upper connection on the carburetor. The lower carburetor connection goes to the intake side of the primer bulb, and the outlet side of the primer goes back into the tank, which has no filter inside the tank. The main problem is determining the correct primer port to connect back to the carburetor. When everything is connected, try priming the carburetor. If fuel fills the bulb, you have everything connected correctly. If nothing happens, try switching the two primer port connections and try to pump fuel again. If still nothing, hook the main supply line from the carburetor over to one of the primer ports and try for fuel again--if still nothing, switch the main supply line to the other primer port and pump again. If still nothing, check for a plugged fuel filter in the tank. If the filter was plugged, then go through the previous procedure again. Make sure to replace the fuel lines with original rubber lines, not plastic. Hope this helps!

Missing T piece from primer bulb to carburator


Sears has replacement parts and so do the OSH stores. If there's no store close, check with a local lawnmower shop and I'm sure they've got lots of replacement parts.

Fuel Lines - 25cc Craftman weedwacker


Your Craftsman Trimmer/weedwacker:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=358795591+&pathTaken=partSearch

Best Poulan Engine Match (probably real manufacturer):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/BC2400-Gas-Trimmer-Type-6/75.BC2400-Gas-Trimmer-Type-6.1.59.1.html

My decisions are being driven by my experience with Poulan chainsaws. Small hose in tank (long enough to reach all corners), filter on bottom, connects to lowest connection on carburetor. Small hose on upper carburetor connection to small fitting on primer. Large hose from large connection on primer through largest tank hole, roughly mid tank long. nothing on bottom. I suggest you leave the 2 connections on the carburetor long enough they can be swapped (just in case) then try it. if no go swap them.

Typical fuel system and a suggestion or two:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3706813-2_cycle_fuel_system_repair

This is how I would configure it if a chainsaw, doubtful they would do something completely different. In defense of Jerry, he knows how it should be done, clarity of instruction could use some help. Good Luck. HTH

Problem with primer bulb


Reverse the line connections at the primer bulb. Look carefully, the long port has the line going to the tank, the short port on the bulb will connect with the fuel line to the carb.
