Weedeater gas edger won't start!!!!!!!!!

I bought a sears 2 cycle gas edger in 1987 and it worked great for about 20 years. The gas line split. And at wall mart the had the weedeater 2 cycle gas edger for 149.00. I had so much good luck with the craftsman that this sould last me another 20 years. They look like they were made at the same place.I bought the craftsmen for my wife as she could start it very easy. I bought a second weedeater for my son and his wife last year. Now neather one will start. I can't get a spark to eather one of them. I have since worked on the 22 year old craftsman so i can edge my yard. But it is getting really hard to start.
Is there a spark control moudul on these weedeater edgers????

Yes, there is a spark module, but it's highly unlikely that two would have a bad module - more than likely, it is your gas mix. it must be fresh for the engine to run. the gas we have today will go bad in about a month and a half. if you happen to live in an area that has E85, forget it. small engines will not run very long, if at all on this junk. in some areas, you can get gas without alcohol, but it can only be used for lawn & garden equipment. it's expensive, but your engines will run

I have a sears 2 cycle mini tiller that worked great for the first hour but now won't start.


Do not use pre-mix fuel. Clean carburetor. Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil) .Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.

Sounds as though the fuel filter may be plugged. The filter is in the tank. Take a look, see if it is visible. Remove and replace. Good luck...Lee

My stihl weedeater starts and idles fine but does not get power.


I have a Stihl FS 45 and have had problems with it running for a short time then cutting out. The problem is like to be either- the filter attached to end end of the fuel pick hose that goes down into the fuel tank is blocked or- there is a crack or split in the corrugated section of the fuel pick up hose between the fuel tank and the carburettor. If such a crack or split exists it will cause air to be sucked in with the fuel upsetting the fuel/air ratio. A new hose not adjustment is the only cure

Brand new sears 2 cycle gas trimmer is very very hard to start . When you finally get it started and it runs for a while, it will restart easier.


Do you mean hard to start as in you have to pull and pull to get it started or do you mean hard to start as in tough to pull? If you have to pull and pull then the carb screws (gas and air) need to be adjusted. Start by turning them all the way in and the a turn and a fourth turn out and adjust from there. If you mean just tough to pull, the some newer weedeaters have lots of compression and since they come from the factory this way it can't be changed. It will always be tough to start.

My weedeater edger over heats and freezes up. it gets very hot, smokes around the spark plug, the spark plug is coverd with soot and it won't start again


Are you using mixed gas? The gas needs to be mixed 50:1
You will have to use 2 cycle oil. If you are using mixed gas, than you can buy a cooler spark plug.
Sounds like the spark plug is not properly gapped.
