check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

I have a Craftsman and you should have a separate attachment to it. Your motor will turn the same, instead of pushing air out the pipe, you will draw air in through the air intake.

There is a round grille on the bottom of the unit. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the latch to release it and reveal the vacuum opening. You should have a two-piece intake pipe that will attach to the opening.

The collection bag attaches to the smaller outlet where the blower pipe used to be (unscrew the wing nut to release the blower pipe). The bag clips onto the hooks at the base of the opening.

SOURCE: craftsman leaf blower, primer bulb will not return, won't start

It sound like the primer bulb does not retract by itself due to aging problem.

Got a craftsman leaf blower cranks up and runs fine for about 5 mins then starts losing rpms


ITs hard to diagnose these things over the internet, it could be so many things.
Is this a gradual loss of power? If so; Im sorry to say; that it sounds like its losing compression as it warms up. It is not cost effective to repair the unit.

If the loss of power is more sudden it could be a failing ignition module. Ive even seen spark plugs that quit working when they get hot.

To test this you will need a proper spark tester, laying the spark plug against the head will not provide an accurate assesment, and a can of carb cleaner. Run the unit with the air box cover and filter removed till it fails and immediately give a shot of carb cleaner in the carb and restart. If it starts right up it could be fuel related. IF it doesnt start right up then quickly test for spark. If no spark then its likely the ignition module. If it wont run on the extra fuel and it has spark then it has probably lost compression.

Can you give me the specs on what to set the ignition module for me sears leaf blower model # 358.794741


Hello,

The air gap is set at 0.10, or a business card will work as a feeler gauge.

Hope this helps

No fire


If you have replace the spark plug and still no fire. It is the ignition module, that fires the spark plug, needs replacing. You will need a part # 3443d Tecumseh Ignition module.
Good Day.

I have a craftsman leaf blower which has worked fine till last week when it suddenly stopped. I did a spark test...no spark....replaced the plug....no spark. What next?


How did you do the spark test? Did you use an in-line spark tester? You need to determine definitively that there is no spark and the only way to do it is to use an in-line spark tester...you can get one at Harbor Freight for about $12. After you've checked it that way, if there is definitely no spark, most likely the ignition module is faulty. You should be able to purchase a new module through Sears Parts but bounce the cost and time of that off of the cost of a new blower...you may be surprised.
