I have a 32cc craftsman blower that wont start, i replaced the fuel line because it had disenegrated and cleaned the carb. wont pull gas up the tube to the carb, is this a problem with the pickup in the gas tank or the carb? if i shoot carb cleaner into the carb it will fire but wont stay running. thanks

Re: 32 cc blower not starting
Your problem is inside the carburator.there is a small screen inside that needs to be cleaned out.take the single screw from one side of carb.there is a small screen in side.carefully take an air hose and blow it out.do not blow to hard or the screen will blow out.once it's clean the unit will start right up.hope this helped,let me know.................................

www.repairclinic.com/.../Model-358794762-Craftsman-Leaf-Blower-Par... This part fits your Leaf Blower. Husqvarna fuel filter. If the fuel filter is clogged, it willrestrict the flow of fuel to the carburetor. As a result, the engine may not start.
My work and research show that most problems of this type are fuel system related. There is no "miracle" cure to keep the 32cc engine running. Many different things come into play here. The most common problem is dried out parts inside the carburetor. There is a small gasket and diaphragm kit to cure this however.
Your fuel system must be fairly new and with a clean fuel filter inside the fuel tank. The old fuel lines tend to become brittle and flakes of them break off and enter the carb. They get lodged on a very small screen filter that allows fuel to flow thru the carb.If fuel lines are old or brittle, replace them.
Another problem is that the carb has gone "out" of adjustment or never was adjusted correctly in the first place (not uncommon). With new, stringent EPA and CARB laws and regs, the manufacturers of these carbs set them to run very "lean". This means a lot of air and very little fuel. The problem here being that the lubricant for the engine (in this case) is IN the fuel.
Check the condition and color of the spark plug. It will tell you how the engine is performing. Clean the black carbon off of it and reinstall, or just put a new one in.
So brittle fuel lines, old, stale fuel, clogged up screen strainers inside carb, weak spark and misadjusted carbs can ALL contribute to your machine's problem. It is NOT rocket science but some standard diagnostics and testing is required to narrow down exactly what the problem is. Take a look at the things I have mentioned and remember, I have no idea how OLD or in what mechanical condition your machine is (even though I own one just like it). Post back as needed.
Air fuel mixture problem,,,you need to have the filter pulled out and cleaned. Check fuel system for debris and clean, that includes all the fuel lines and possibly disassemble carb and clean and reassemble.
Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check: 1) spark plug 2) spark arrestor in muffler 3) fuel lines and tank filter 4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn Chain Saws: 5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then: Remove Carburetor 6) replace gaskets/diaphragms a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body, then the gasket towards the outside c) metering gasket goes against the carb body, and the diaphragm goes towards the outside
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.)
Your carb is leaning out, causing the thing to die. Try adjusting the mixture screw (out) to richen the mixture. If there is a cap, you can pull it off to go richer. If that doesn't work, either the filter/pickup is plugged, the fuel line is kinked/smashed, or the carb needs to come apart to be cleaned.
