Spring, spool then cap....if that way doesn't let the line out correctly, then it is possible you have wound the line on the spool in the wrong direction. Try taking the line off and winding it on the other way.

    Where is the starter hole on the spool to start winding from, or do you tie the string on ?

Craftsman weedwacker model #358797150 will not pick up fuel


Have you checked the fuel filter and made sure it is not plugged. Make sure the primer bulb is not cracked or leaking pressure. If you have then I would be sure the fuel cap is not bad. To check the cap you should be able to put the cap on the tank pump the primer button to build pressure in the tank and then turn the cap a turn or so and hear the pressure release. If that is all ok then I would think the diaphragm in the carb is bad and the carb needs to be rebuilt.

Look for air leaks in the gas line and around the carb , a bad gas cap will not let any pressure build up. It could be that too. Check also the fuel line and filter inside the tank. replace if needed.
www.ereplacementparts.com has parts for craftsman or the online Sears Stores.

Need info on putting line on troy bilt 4-cycle string trimmer. Need to know how to get spool off trimmer to replace trimming string on the spool.


Hold orange spool containing string while twisting the black plastic cap in the center, counterclockwise. This retaining cap is loosely spring loaded, so watch for the spring falling out. Once this locking cap is removed, the spool pulls right off.

Have Craftsman gas weedwacker double line ran out.


take off knob that holds on the spool on bottom of weedwacker, remove spool, there are notches around the outside splines on the bottom of the spool. (the bottom is the end that fits up into the spool housing. there are 2 little holes opposite one another on the spool - one on each section. Cut two lengths of line about 6 feet long. stick line into first hole (near bottom of unit) wrap line around spool. once wrapped line gets short - to the point where you cant wrap it anymore - stick the end into one of the notches - do the same with the other line - insert spool back into housing - make sure spring is attached to the spool and lines come out of the holes in the housing - reinsert knob and tighten - make sure as you are doing this you unseat the ends of the lines off of the notches on the spool and they are out through the housing - tighten knob and you should be good to go
