Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

I have a Craftsman walk-behind Gas edger. Model 536797513. The pull cord broke so I removed the housing,and replaced the cord. When I re-installed the housing, the cord will not rewind. Cannot find part number for replacement housing in manual or at website. I have a picture of housing I could upload.

    The only spring I see looks like a metal tab and it lays on one of the spokes of the housing.There is no resisitance. I dont see where this metal tab would connect and it's the only thing that resembles a spring

Kids broke pull cord


Remove the entire housing and do not drill the rivets unless you can replace them with the same size.

Pull cord broke on my craftsman gas push edger. I replaced cord but when I pull cord..It wont rewind but I can hear it trying to start


It sounds like you did not properly rewind the spring that is behind the spool that the cord would around, that spring is what rewinds the cord after pulling the cord.

I have an old Craftsman 6.75 hp walk behind


Not sure where to look for the model number. But here's a few things to check.
1. If the gas is old (from last year), drain it out of the tank, carb and lines and replace with fresh. Gas can go bad and won't ignite properly after it has been around too long.
2. Replace the spark plug.... sometimes they look good and aren't.
3. Clean the Air filter. Take the filter element out of the housing and give it a good cleaning with compressed air. If it's plugged up with debris and dust, your trimmer won't run.
4. Make sure the oil level is correct. Many of the current motors won't run if the oil is low.
hope this help ya

Broken pull cord


ur going to have to unmount the the motor from the shaft

step 1. Unbolt throttle housing

step 2. now with that out of the way u should see a clamp holding the motor to the shaft, loosen and pull the shaft out, there will be a cable, so make sure u have it lined up so it goes back into place

step 3, look at the back of the motor, u should see screws going into the plastic housing (coming in from back going into plastic)

step 4. once that is off pull the broken part of the cord out

step 5. wind up the starter coil, (it will only wind up one way) its spring loaded so be carful, once it stops back it off 1 full turn

step 6. u will see a hole for the cord in the housing and in the coil, make sure they are lined up

step 7. insert the cord through both holes, tie it as tighttttt as possible, then let the spring do the rest

step 8. put it back together

Craftsman 17" 25cc Trimmer...pull cord stuck


it's doubtful that bad gas caused this, it sounds like the cord was back-lashed and partially came off the recoil pulley. Remove the recoil cover and ensure the cord is all on the pulley, make sure the rewind mechanism works smoothly before re-installing.

REplacing the pulling cord on a gas trimmer


those are usaully under your pull start cover and if its broke you can buy a new rope but if its broke near handle i would open it and retie it to save ya money. but remember to wind spring a little to keep tension on it before pushing it through the hole for handle.
