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.

    Mine started up fine after 5 years but I attribute this the good job of putting it away that the previous owner did. I realize that this is not much help to you.

Craftsman weedwacker won't start.


If you are happy the carb is now ok and the plug gets wet with fuel, then either there is no spary ( remove the plug, place against the cyliner, away from any fuel source near the plug hole, crank the engine and see if there is a spark ) if there is a spark, then it could be a sheared flywheel key knocking the ignition timing out.

Weedwacker -purchased more than a year ago, never been able to start it. Lost owner's manual - can I get a copy on line?


Should be able to google model #. Make sure you have a 40:1 fuel oil mix. Pump primer bulb 4-5 times, put on full choke, when attempts to start set choke to half. After it starts open choke. If won't start and has been sitting for months with fuel in it, the carb is more than likley gummed up.If you paide less than $100.00 for it it is not worth having it repaired at a shop. You can although purchase a new carb at eparts, or sears parts direct for around $ 30.00. Just need the model#. Good luck.

I have a gas operated 31cc Craftsman model number 316.798221 weedwacker trimmer 17 I mixed fuel with 2 cycle engine oil using a 4 to 1 ratio. The trimmer no longer starts. It seems as if it is about to...


If you have mixed your gas and oil to a 4 to one mix you have way too much oil in your gasoline. Drain out your fuel tank and carburetor. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Remove the spark plug and clean if necessary. Mix your fuel in a fuel container at 40 to one. Some sites even recommend a 50 to one mixture. (50 to one mixture is one pint of oil to 6 gallons of gasoline) Refill your fuel tank on the trimmer and try to crank, if it does not want to crank within 4-5 pulls then you may want to give it a very small shot of starting ether in the carburetor intake and try to crank again. Good Luck, I hope this helped, Please rate me, Thanks

Craftsman 34cc 4 cycle weedwacker will not start


Start by removing and cleaning the spark plug. The check out the screen at the exhaust port and make sure that it is completely free of carbon build-up. I never run my equipment out of gas at the end of a season, I usually add some fuel stabilizer to the gas and run some into the carb before shutting down for the season. Hope this helps and good luck.
