Craftsman 25cc weed eater (Poulan) won't stay running.

Craftsman 25cc weed eater (Poulan). I couldn't get it started, took some parts off, cleaned them, no help. Had a friend of a friend work on it. I can get it started now, but it quits after 3-4 minutes. The first few times it quitsI can get it restarted, then I can't. It seems to get REALLY flooded. Also, there seems to be a fuel leak from somewhere. I had replaced both fuel lines and the spark plug. I saw on this site a solution to a Poulan fuel line problem that said the return line should be only like 1'' into the tank. Mine is longer... is that a problem? ANY HELP is appreciated. This thing has started great for 10 years, until this year.

I already dumped all the old gas and mixed a new gallon at exactly the right ratio.

I'll get it started, be using it with throttle on, then it just goes off like it ran out of gas. But it has gas in the tank.

Thank you.

SOURCE: 25cc weed eater, will only idle

double check your carb as it should have a screw for the fuel mixture. some carbs have a plastic piece over them that only lets you move the screws so far if you need more extreme adjustment they pull out about a 1/8th of a inch then you can turn in then push it back in, same principals as making a flame on a bic lighter bigger, if you cant find it take some pics of your carb and email them to me @ prerunnerrngr@yahoo.com and i will point them out

MAKE SURE YOU REPLACE THE CARB GASKETS. ALSO MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING FRESH FUEL WITH THE RIGHT MIXTURE. COMPRESSION SHOULD BE AT LEAST 90LBS

SOURCE: Describe your Poulan/Weed Eater No.

I found the manual for this model weed eater, according to the manual the mixture...
and I quote "This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline. Before operation, gasoline
must be mixed with a good quality synthetic 2-cycle air cooled engine oil designed to be
mixed at a Ratio of 40:1 ...."
and I quote once more from the manual "Helpful Tip. To obtain
correct oil mix ration, pour 3.2 ounces of 2 cycle synthetic oil into one gallon of fresh gas."

Hope that helps,
If you like I can send the manual via email if you need it.

:) happy weed thrashing

New poulan pro 25cc chokes out after if I give it full throttle. Runs ok except it wont stay running on full throtle.


I find with my Poulan Pro that you need to let it warm-up abit before applying full throttle, I live in Upstate NY where the weather has bee great lately,however, it stalls easy ..I mix 1-pint of 3 stroke oil to 1-gallon of gas for my weed eater and have no problem

How do I remove the spoolhead so as to afix the pivotrim head


I installed the Pivo trim head yesterday. The info that came with the unit will show you how to install it on ANY Weed Eater Unit. Also they have videos on their web site at: https://pivotrim.com/

Look on the end of the shaft of your weed eater at the head. Mine was a 25cc Poulan/weed eater SST45 and it has a hole that you need to stick a HEX KEY in so the shaft does not move when you try to remove it. ALSO it has a BACKWARDS THREAD!!! So "Right is NOT Tight." Left is to tighten and turn towards the right to get the head to unscrew so you can put on the Pivotrim Head. Also you can use ANY Weed Eater line on the unit. As I tried several different lines and found different uses for different lines. Such as edging and trimming against fences. Best after Market Weed Eater head I have EVER used. :-)

Enjoy! :-D

New poulan pro will not start


when I bought mine. The weed eater didn't start right away so I took it back where I bought it and I had them look over it. when reading the manuel It said that it might not start right away becuse the fuel mixture needs to be adjusted on the pro prolan pp125 weed eated. so we utilized what we had around us and found a tube. adjusted it and it started right up.

Craftsman Weed Eater only runs on choke (not at all now!)


Check the mounting screws holding the carburettor and the plate behiend the carb, they often become loose, also the gaskets, they might need renewing. Your carb. could need cleaning and new diaphrams. stephen.

New fuel lines, wont stay run, swapt in/out line, wont stay run


Sometimes simply removing the carb and placing it in a carb dip will clean it without tearing it apart, also check or replace the spark plug. Make sure you have compression, good spark, and that fuel is getting to the carb. If that doesnt work, email me and I'll find you a diagram. Jblee1975@yahoo.com
