The fuel filter is in the fuel tank. Before removing make a sketch of where the fuel lines connect to. Empty the tank and use a flash light and look inside the fuel tank to see which line has the filter on it. There's a retainer on the fuel line up against the fuel tank on the outside. Use a small screwdriver to remove this retainer. It looks like a washer. Remove the fuel line from the carburetor and using needle nose pliers pull on the old filter and remove it from the filler hold with the fuel line still connected. You should use a new fuel line the same diameter as the old one. From the outside feed the fuel line through the hole. It will be tight. Push it through until you can get a hold of it through the filler hold. Put the filter on then pull the fuel line back. Pull until the filter is up against the fuel tank. Put the retainer on the line and while pulling the fuel line tight press the retainer up against the tank. Attach the end of the fuel line back on the carb.

SOURCE: craftsman 32cc would not idle

If you are certain that you have correcting gaped the plug then the next step is to readjust the low end idle carburetor. If you look you should see two holes in the plastic cover that lead to the flow adjustment screws they may even be out in the open. If they are not labeled H and L (the L is the one you want), check your manual for the correct one. A good place to start is turning the screw all the way in then backing it out 1 1\2 turns. Then check it. If you still have problems do 1\4 turns out. After about one full turn from that you might want to consider taking the carburetor off and removing the float bowl or the bottom for a good cleaning. A sticking float could cause problems with your fuel flow.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: RE: craftsman weed wacker

The air filter is a piece of cake... it is inside the middle cover which comes right off....The fuel filter is a different animal and is located IN the fuel tank at the end of the smaller diameter fuel line which comes out of the tank and goes directly to the body of the carburetor...your problem could be something else entirely though...like worn carb parts...partially clogged muffler and/or arrestor screen or port. These engine produce a by-product of carbon because of the amount of oil they burn along with the gas. It's good that it at least starts but I am leaning towards a problem with fuel delivery here. Drain the fuel tank... Look inside it and check condition of fuel filter...sometimes they break/rot off of the fuel line in the tank and the fuel lines should ALL be replaced at that point.

I need to ask. Did you leave fuel mix in it for a long time? If so then the carburetor will need to be cleaned with a special cleaner. and not the spray can stuff.

Try draining the fuel and re filling with fresh, if no better, does it have a spark at the plug? does the plug get wet with fuel? if not try replacing the fuel filter in the fuel tank.

Weedwacker won't start


Is there an air lock in the line. Remove the lines and insert only one at a time and see if one will take fuel and the other none? Also, check carb float to make sure its not stuck open intaking fuel constantly flooding bowl

Craftsman weedwacker keeps dying


If the weedwacker runs OK on 1/2 choke or even better on full choke then most likely the cause is the carb gaskets are stiff and can no longer pump the fuel. Of course make sure the fuel lines are are the right ports (return and supply). While you have the carb apart clean all of the passages with carb cleaner.
