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/weedeater 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, You will first seat the jet screws and 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

Craftsman weedwacker 31cc 17" won't start has spark fuel it has been sitting for years


Have you checked the condition of the air filter? If ok, have you cleaned and re-oiled it?

My 31cc 18" Craftsman weedwacker came with the house I bought 5 years ago. Just getting around to getting it going. Checked air filter and found it had disintegrated. The air filter is foam and you put oil on it so over time the foam will break down. My manual states that if you don't clean and re-oil your air filter every 10 hours of operation, you void your warranty so sound fairly important. Just picked up new air filter yesterday. Will let you know how mine starts up (or doesn't) later today or tomorrow.

Runs fine when first start. Dosen't want to start after warmed up.


Have you checked or Changed the Fuel Filter.
It will be in the tank hooked to the fuel line. I suggest a small pair of Hemostats for this job.

Engine on Craftsman Weedwacker will not turn over.


I assume the tank has gas. The first thing to check is for spark at the plug. Remove the plug from engine, connect the plug wire to the plug and ground the side of plug to metal engine housing using pliers with plastic grip handles so you don't get a shock. Pull the starter cord and watch the plug for a spark jump. If you have spark then it is likely a gas starved situation. All these small engines should be run dry before storing in the fall of year to prevent carb from gumming up over the winter. Anyway remove the gas line and drain any gas from carb and drain tank too if it has old gas from last year. Replace fuel line and spark plug. Using new gas and 2 cycle oil, plus an ounce of STP gas treatment, refill tank. Work the primer bulb several times and pull the throttle several times, then pull cord. Keep repeating to see if you get a start.
