Question about Craftsman Convertible 25cc. Gas Line Trimmer
Canbruce suggested a few things, which I tried (e.g., cleaning that spark plug). These helped the problem somewhat, but not significantly. Now it'll start and run for maybe 5-10 seconds, if that, and stall. Then it takes upwards of 12-15 attempts, if not more, to get another brief period of operation. Guessing it may be starved for fuel, but I have no idea what to do next. Thanks.

Let's start with the easy stuff first. Remove and clean the spark plug. Look into the tank and fish out the fuel filter. It should be stuck in the end of the fuel line in the tank. I usually use a short piece of coathanger with a small hook bent into the end of it. Clean or replace the fuel filter. The next thing is to clean the small screen at the exhaust. Remove any carbon build-up there that you can. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

First, use the same oil and mix it the same from batch to batch, once you have made a batch (gallon or what ever, never add gas or oil to make more, use up the batch to the last drop, then make a new gallon). Be sure the air filter is clean, some are oil wet to catch more dirt, clean and spray it with a spray cooking oil. Next: Look for 3 adjustment screws on the carb. should be three total. 1 screw is for idle adjustment. the other 2 should be close to each other, one is low speed fuel/air mix and the other is high fuel/air mix. Adjust the low fuel/air mix screw until it will idle un-added with the throttle then adjust the idle on the throttle to get a good idle speed. Next adjust the High fuel/air mix until it gets the RPM's you want it to have. It should go from idle to high speed with out hesitation or cough. .

Low side adjustment on the carb needs to be opened up or the carb needs to be overhauled. To open up the low sie, find the carb jet adjustment screws. The screw closest to the cylinder is the low side. Turn the screw counter-clockwise 1/2 turn. You may need to romove tho plastic locks from the adjustment screws, or if it is fairly new, you may need to buy a special tool to use on these screws. The tool is available anywhere that sells Poulan parts. If adjusting the screws doesm't fix it, the carb will need to be overhauled or replaced. Check with www.searspartsdirect.com . Replacement carbs are sometimes cheaper than an overhaul.
