The plugged vent gets my vote. Loosen the fuel cap when it starts to starve.

Craftsman 32cc/170 mph leaf blower. Why does it die after a few minutes running?


Is this a consistent situation? Starts, runs then dies after a little while?
If so, sounds like carburetor/fuel pump (which is a one way diagraphm) issue.
Take carburetor apart, and also obtain a rebuild kit for it. Clean it well, compressed air through all the jets, replace the parts from the kit and reassemble. Re-install back onto unit.
Also... Replace Spark Plug, fuel filter and clean the spark Arrestor screen at muffler.

Seeing a lot of fuel line problems due to ethanol. Make sure your fuel lines and primer lines are in tact. If the fuel line has broken, you may also need to clean out the inlet screen in the carburetor which can also become clogged.

Have a craftsman # 358.350880 saw will not accelerate and lacks power


Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Check for proper chain oiling by running the saw at speed for several moments with the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

I have a 18" Craftsman gas chain saw. It will not keep running, after two or three cuts it just stops and cannot be started again until it sits for 15 to 20 minutes. I have cleaned the air filter and...


Try removing the fuel cap for a moment, then try restart. If ok, check the fuel vent for plugging. Check the fuel filter for plugging. Inspect the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Check for spark when it stops--it may be the ignition module failing when hot. Check for sawdust and dirt plugging the ventilation system--blow it out with compressed air. Does the engine 4-stroke at speed when not cutting, but does 2-stroke when cutting? Make sure the chain is being oiled while running. Hope this helps!

Craftsman chain saw. Won't restart after running for long time.


First check is for spark at the plug when it won't fire--it should be blue and snappy with a fresh plug set for 0.020" gap. If not, then remove the flywheel side cover, turn the flywheel magnets to underneath the ignition module. Use a thin business card for a gap gauge and insert it into the space between the magnets and the module poles--loosen the screws holding the module to allow the module to stick to the magnets, then re-tighten the screws. Recheck for spark. If now ok, try to start the engine. If this made no difference, then replace the ignition module and use the same install as before. If you originally got good spark, place little fuel mix in the plug hole and retry start--it should at least pop several times. If so, check the fuel filter, air filter and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of all fuel lines. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are all tight. Finally, the carburetor lower diaphragm may be hard or cracked. Make sure the saw body is not getting overly hot-- it may need cleaning with compressed air to recover proper cooling. Hope some of this helps!

a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check cylinder compression


Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside
