Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Replace spark plug. Replace air filter. Fill oil. 30w. When plug is removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. With air filter removed spray starter fluid into air intake hole of air filter, try to start.
Ensure fresh gas only is in gas tank. Always add Stabil to gas. If no start clean carb or replace. carb.

Clean or change air filter. Clean, gap or change spark plug. Empty gas tank add fresh gas with Stabil. When spark plug is removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray starter fluid in spark plug hole before replacing spark plug. Clean outside of carb so choke works freely. Spray starter fluid into carb breather hole with air filter removed and try to start. if running replace air filter and cover. If no start disassemble carb and clean. If no start replace carb.

Craftsman hand held gas leaf blower will not start. I have put in fresh gas, changed spark plugs, cleaned the gas filter, tested for spart and it does spark, changed the air filter but all this and still...


If it has a spark then try spraying some starter fluid on the air filter. If it attempts to run then the carburator is stopped up. If it doesn't then you most likely have low compression. Remove the spark plug and screw in a compression tester and pull the starter a few times. It has to have no less than 70 psi to fire and run. 90+ would be even better. If it is 50 and below try pouring a little oil in the spark plug hole and repeat the test. If it improves a little then you have a scored cylinder or piston or stuck or broken piston rings. Let me know what you learn and I'd be glad to walk you through some more.

If anything is gummed up ... it would be injectors (if appropriate) or carb. I think id concentrate on cleaning the carb. Get fresh gas in the tank if you didnt already. Dont burn the starter up! Maybe shoot a little raw gas into the spart plug hole ... replace the plug ... see what happens.

Let me know how you make out please.

Craftsman weedeater will not start


The most probable problem is no fuel delivery to the engine.

1. Check/replace the fuel in-tank filter, you should be able to easily blow through it once removed. The primer bulb will sink down and not return quickly if the filter is bad. Fuel will not return to the tank via the return line if the fuel filter doesn't allow fuel to be pulled in.

2. If fuel is returning to the fuel tank when the primer is pushed then your problem is inside the carb.

3. To verify this put a small quantity of gas in the lid of a water bottle (half full). And pour it into the carb throat. Replace the air filter to prevent a backfire from shooting flames out. Try to start the weedwacker. If it runs and then dies the problem is inside the carb.

4. If you are really good at working on things with small parts you can clean out the carb and replace all of the gaskets to solve the problem. If this isn't for you then you should take it to a lawn shop and have them clean the carb and replace the gaskets.

NOTE: Replacing the gaskets is very important because the gaskets get stiff and the fuel pump action of one of the gaskets is reduced or stopped.

Hope this helps, Karl

I have spart, but won't turn over


so if its firing with starting fluid but not gas then your gas is not getting thru at the right rate. if you are in the USA get some Berrymans carb cleaner spray and a can of fuel additive. remove air cleaner and spray a ton or cleaner in. leave it soaking over night. try starting. add some of the mix in additive in the gas, if it will start run it till hot then let stand overnight. next day hopfully will be fine
