I just went to start up my older model McLane gas edger. Started up without a problem until the spark plug suddenly flew out. I assume I must need a new spark plug but is there more?

I would check the thread where your plug screws in it can be fixed with what they call a helicoil thread repair kit hope this helps.

I have Homelite trimmer/edger for 3 years. It has been working great until recently, after a cold start and edging for 7 - 8 minutes it stops all of sudden until it gets cold and runs for 6 -7...


You need to check the ignition coil, by running until it quits and then remove the spark plug, reattach the plug wire and then ground the plug threads to the block and then try to start it. If you get no spark or very weak spark, the coil is bad and needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps get you going again.

check gas/oil, if all is good the pull the spark plug, hook the spark plug back up and pull the cord while observing the spark plug for spark, may be the coil. Hope this helps Tim

Won't start


If the plug is wet, have you checked to see if you are getting spark? I will assume (something I hate to do) for the sake of argument, that you do have spark. If you have gas and spark then the next place I would check would be the spark arrestor/exhaust port. Make sure it is clear of carbon build-up. It has to be some sort of compression problem, I would think, and that would be a place to start. Hope this helped and let me know how it goes! Best wishes.

Craftsman 25cc edger has trouble starting. once started it will run for 5 - 10 minutes and then shut shut off. Will not start again until it cools down. Changed the spark plug , but it has the same pr


Dump the fuel in the tank, get new gas and new oil and start over. Get a carbeurator cleaner additive for the gas as your carb. is dirty resulting in the sporatic operation.

A spray carb. cleaner that you squirt into the air intake by removing the air filter will also work for you. In fact, when you are getting the carb. cleaner get a new air cleaner and a new spark plug. get back and let me know how u make out.

Stihl weed eater runs 2min. then stop


Stihl weedeater was running and stopped suddenly. Put in a new fuel filter and cleaner air filter with soap and water. Checked spark plug and it appeared fine. Started the weedeater, ran for a second or so and stopped. Spark plug wasn't gas fouled. Could it be the carburetor needing new diaphram gasket and spring.
