Most likely suspects: 1) Carbon in the spark arrestor screen. 2) Carbon in the muffler. 3) Carbon in the exhaust port.

To prevent this issue in the future you should use a 50:1 ratio for you fuel mix.

Hope this is helpful,

316.791961 carburetor rebuild


Bought this model 2 years ago. Used it 3 seasons. Started getting hard to keep running and finally checked out the issue. Found the primer bulb cracked. Got a primer bulb (Walbro 188-12-1) from Co-op and seemed to fit but still wouldn't start.

Started looking for a rebuild kit and found none. Called the MTD office (this was built by MTD for Craftsman) and they don't make a rebuild kit. They said because the new carb is as cheap as a kit. I looked for a new carb and found one on ebay for $28 shipped free. PN: (753-06258a)
Ordered it, it arrived 3 days later and installed it. Started right away. Comes with a few part I didn't use. Gaskets and spacers. I only replaced the carb. Also I am pretty sure the orientation of the gas lines are different on this new carb. This one is a replacement "a" model and I think I had to put the green and yellow line different than the original model. stead of coming out the top the ports come out the bottom. Just hook it up and have only about half a tank of gas. That way the return line is above gas level and can't suck gas if hooked up backwards. If you start to prime and get only air then reverse the lines.
Went to Lowes and got the jumpstart bit for a troybilt for $10. Place on the cordless drill (high speed) and start like a car...get one but make sure you have a fast drill.

The engine will not run unless you pour gas in the carb. It ran before i charged the fuel line which was rotted off. It is 2 cycle blower vacuum and i do not have the model nomber handy


its that new fule line you put in,,,its not letting any fule down to the carb you have proved there is nothing wrong with the engine, by tipping fule into the carb,,,,
have another go at fitting the new fule line,,, rember to put on the fule filter on the end that gos inside the fule tank if its not on it the pipe will not lay in the fule tank right and wont pick up any fule out the tank,,,
i bet thats were you went wrong?

Engine only runs with choke full on. Dies when off full choke.


Hi Dave, it sounds crazy, but try this. Check your gas cap. It could be clogged, causing a vacuum to occur in the tank, and therefore not allowing the carb. to take on gas. It usually take 10-15 min. for this to occur. The next time you run the mower and it starts to stall out, loosen the gas cap and see if it begins to run again. If it does, then you know that the gas cap is clogged.

Craftsman gas leafblower


Hey Karl,

To me this sounds like its getting too much fuel after it has been warmed up so either there is too much gas flow to the unit or there is not enough. check your primer bulb once this happens if there is a full bulb when it shuts down chances are its getting too much gas, if its empty then its not getting enough and your fuel filter could be starting to plug up or is not in the tank properly.
