32cc Craftsman weedwacker dies at idle

32cc Craftsman weedwacker difficult to start then only maintains idle for anywhere from a couple seconds to a few minutes only when at half-choke, then dies. Will die immediately when switched choke is switched off at any time.

These symptoms remain regardless of how much gas I give it, how warmed-up it is, etc.

Spark plug is good, carb and filter are clean.

Any ideas?

Was given a craftsman 32cc weedwacker. no manual. need to know what fuel it takes.


The website just says gas/oil (http://community.craftsman.com/Craftsman-Convertible-32cc-Gas-Line-Trimmer-reviews?tab=details). I'm not sure what that means. But on the Craftsman Community web page (http://community.craftsman.com/community) there is a link that says Feedback and Support. If you click that and fill out the form, someone should get back to you.
Hope this helps!

Craftsman 32cc would not idle


If you are certain that you have correcting gaped the plug then the next step is to readjust the low end idle carburetor. If you look you should see two holes in the plastic cover that lead to the flow adjustment screws they may even be out in the open. If they are not labeled H and L (the L is the one you want), check your manual for the correct one. A good place to start is turning the screw all the way in then backing it out 1 1\2 turns. Then check it. If you still have problems do 1\4 turns out. After about one full turn from that you might want to consider taking the carburetor off and removing the float bowl or the bottom for a good cleaning. A sticking float could cause problems with your fuel flow.
Hope this helps.

My 32cc weedwacker starts up fine on full choke, move slowly to 1/2 and it will run strong for a couple seconds and then just shuts off. It does this over and over.


First, check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.
If they are o.k., then you will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb. cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the cleaning doesn't work, then buy a carb. kit abd replace all appropriate parts.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Craftsman weedwacker keeps dying


If the weedwacker runs OK on 1/2 choke or even better on full choke then most likely the cause is the carb gaskets are stiff and can no longer pump the fuel. Of course make sure the fuel lines are are the right ports (return and supply). While you have the carb apart clean all of the passages with carb cleaner.
