These are know for the fuel line problems. Pull out the fuel line from the tank with the filter and check it. I've fixed 4 or 5 with bad lines.
While your add it you may want to install a new filter.

Craftsman trimmer 25cc


Diaphrams can be tricky sometimes...seating can be irritating. If carb disassembled and cleaned out...might have to check adjustments. Make sure screw didn't get loose. I had one do that before when governor broke.

Will not run without the choke on


sounds like you may need to check / rebuild carby and check fuel lines and fuel filter , check tank breather as well

but before rebuilding carb make sure compression and spark are up to scratch and muffler is clear then make sure that the crankcases are air tight and have no air leaks from ie base gasket , c/case joints, crank seals , insulator gaskets or manifold boots or carb gaskets

this is important vacuum and pressure operate the carby diaphrams if not enough vacuum
carb wont pump / pickup fuel mix from tank

if air is leaking in the unit will typically be hard to start, or not at all, wont idle , keep stalling
require consistant mixture adjustments, or may even increase its own revs without throttle being applied , and may even run hot , and have low power


cheers

I have a Sears craftsman lawn mower that will not stay running. The model # in the engine is 12h887-2314-E1. Can you give any suggestion?


Your engine parts list can be found here: http://www.briggsandstratton.com/maint_repair/manual_and_more/docsearch.aspx?enginelookfor=12h887-2314-E1

There are 3 different carb variations on this unit.

Primer type
Choke type
Auto-choke type?

On the Primer type with the plunger on the side of the carb the primer bulb gets a pin hole in it that allows air to be drawn through the primer bulb. So the engine will start an then die after priming.

On the Choke type carb debris in the bottom of the float bowl AND bowl nut will cause this.

On the Auto Choke type there is a diaphram under the carb that can get damaged and allow airflow where there should be fuel flow.

I am pretty sure that your mower has the float bowl on it. remove the bowl nut... take some carb cleaner and spray directly up into the hole the bowl nut screws into and clean it. Then also spray around the float needle.

If your still having problems.. just fro grins remove the fuel supply line to the carb and check for fuel flow. If there is little or no flow either the fuel slector is off or the fuel tank outlet has debris covering the tank outlet hole inside the gas tank.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Craftsman 32cc weed trimmer, can't give gas, it stalls


Usually the diaphram is wore out. It is a relatively inexpensive part. Does it run better with a little choke? If the answer is yes chances are it's the diaphram. Also sometimes the adjustment screws can move. There are two, one for low speed, and one for high. With the engine warmed up make small movements on the screws (some are marked low, and high) in, and out adjust til the engine runs at its optimum.
Hope this helps!

Craftsman gas leaf blower will not start. Spark and gas lines ok. Not getting gas to plug even after prime and several pulls. How do I find gas supply problem. Diaphram in carb looks ok .It actually...


Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark

2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check cylinder compression


Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

Craftsman Weed Eater only runs on choke (not at all now!)


Check the mounting screws holding the carburettor and the plate behiend the carb, they often become loose, also the gaskets, they might need renewing. Your carb. could need cleaning and new diaphrams. stephen.

Gas Lawnmower start and then shuts off....


Ok here are 2 possible solutions.
1. If you have a mower with a sediment bowl under the carb and flat paper air filter, try this. Drain gas from gas tank. Remove the screw that holds the air filter cover. Replace air filter is dirty. Remove the two or three screws that are holding the flat plastic back of air filter cover. Remove the little gasket that is between the flat plastic back and sediment bowl. Make sure you remove all of old gasket. Clean the area around the sediment bowl so it is free of dirt and grim. Use a 1/2 socket (usually) and remove the bolt on underside of the bulb. The remaining gas in the bowl and a little left in the tank will leak out. I let it all run out so if any water is in tank it emptys on its own. Remove the bowl and clean it out with clean rag or paper towel. Use some carb and choke cleaner to spray the carb. Reattach the bowl, and tighten the bolt making sure the ruber gasket between the bowl and carb is not twisted or you will have leaks. Install a new gasket between carb and air filter back replace 2 or 3 screws and air filter and cover. Refill with gas, prime it and then try and start it.

2. If your carb is located ontop of the fuel tank, remove the cross tip screws that hold carb to tank and get a new diaphram (fuel pump in a sense). Replace diaphram and reassemble in reverse. You will have to also remove the bolt that holds tank to motor and the little metal rod that goes from the govonor to the choke.

From what you stated I would think it is number 1.

Good luck. Let me know if this helps.

Auger stalls won't keep running


The diaphram is 2 piece's (1 is gasket the other is the dia.) my suggestion would be to bring it to a repair shop and have the carb rebuilt so that everything can be properly set. Besides the jets needing to be set, the needle may need to be reset also. If the dia. was alittle stiff than its going to need a new kit in it. 2 cycle carbs are alittle more finiky than 4 cycle carbs.
