It sounds like your carb is out of adjustment and you need to adjust it. Look at the carb on your weedwacker, there is an idle adjustment screw somewhere on it and using either phillips or strait screw head and then carefully turning it clockwise go 1/8 of a turn at a time until the engine idles smoothly.

Your engine is either getting too much air or not enough fuel. Check the screws holding the carb. for tightness and check the joint between carb. and engine. If they are ok you will have to remove the carb. and clean it out. Stephen.

How come weedwacker tries to crank while on choke but when you move lever to 2nd position it tries to crank? but wont

When mine does that I go back and reprime repeating the process. It seems the gas does not feed up fully with the initial priming effort. Once it starts I move the choke lever quickly on way or the other to see if I can keep it running until it gets warmed up. Sometimes I have to adjust the choke setting even after it has run for a while.

Look for air leaks in the gas line and around the carb , a bad gas cap will not let any pressure build up. It could be that too. Check also the fuel line and filter inside the tank. replace if needed. has parts for craftsman or the online Sears Stores.
