Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Carburetor change


Primer bulbs pull fuel from the carb, into the bulb and dumps it back to the tank, if you have re connected the hoses to the primer the wrong way around it will try to force fuel into the carb and make it flood.

I have a Poulan 3312 Pro, the primer bulb opped off...how do I re-attach it?


You may have to get a new one that has more flexibility and will stay in place. External bulb assemblies snap in place and the ones on top of the carburetor of course have a metal retaining ring with 2 screws holding the primer bulb to the primer base.

My Poulan Pro weed trimmer SM132 does not run. I replaced the primer bulb and spark plug and it ran fine for 10 minutes. Now it will only start with the choke on and dies immediately. It will not start...


The primer does require two lines attached as it is a Walbro style primer. All four SM132 models uses the WT628 Carb. Since the trimmer ran 10 minutes then you have got all the lines connected right. Mostly you got trash in your carb or it simply needs rebuilding as the diaphragm may have pin hole in it or the check valves are worn out. Depending on the age and use of your unit you may also have a sticking piston ring.
