SOURCE: Craftsman Edger 536-797520 is leaking gas from the air filter

The needle valve is sticking open. The carb needs cleaning and diaphragm replaced. Probably best taken to a shop unless you have experience with diaphragm carburetors. Dwain

Hi Tom. You are not doing anything wrong. That being said, your edger has a slightly gummed up carbeurator. I would go to an auto parts store and get a can of a product called seafoam. this is a gasoline additive. Add one ounce per gallon of gas and use this as the fuel for your edger. You will solve your problem in just a few minutes after using this product, I believe. Give it a try and let me know.

Homelite gas edger cuts off after running about 10-15 seconds


The fact that is runs slightly longer on full choke may point still to a fuelling issue.. Does it actually Rev in those 10 seconds or does it just want to bog down and stall.?

Why won't my homelite 79cc edger won't stay running longer than 3-4 minutes?


Try taking your exhaust apart and see if it's clogged. There's a spark arrester that keeps sparks form coming out the exhaust. Basically a screen that can get clogged with oil and carbon. The link is a good site for troubleshooting. String Trimmer Repair Help

I bought a homelite curb runner and need to replace the blade. The problem is I cannot find the blades anywhere. Any ideas?


I found that your electric edger blade is rounded on the ends. I did not find a part number for it. I also found a site that has about 30 or more Homelite edger blades listed, but again, with half of them without pictures, I can't give you the edger blade part number. But, if you have removed the blade and can measure all the dimensions of the blade, then you can match it up with one from this site.They have more blades than other sites I checked. It should not be too hard as each blade listed has the critical dimensions listed with it. I wish you good luck.

Homelite MightyLite 26cc Edger won't start


You have to make sure the case of the plug is making good connection against the metal on motor. Use file or sandpaper to get good connection on the plug and the motor.
