Question about Craftsman 25cc Gas Line Trimmer
Disassembly will be required to get to the cause of this problem. This problem alongwith the rope being pulled out and not drawing back in are among the major consumer complaints.
Some may think the worst in this situation, that the engine has gone bad and "locked" up. Most of the time though, the problem is misalignment of all parts on the main shaft or the recoil unit itself. It is plastic and the shaft is steel and wear occurs. This can be fixed however but there is some teardown work involved and it does require mechanical abilities to do it.If you are somewhat inclined, start taking the machine apart (starting with the tube that holds the flex shaft that turns the string head). That would be your starting point, directly in front of the engine/coil/starter/flywheel assembly. You will need to remove the throttle cable from the carb and disconnnect the kill switch wire from the ignition coil. From there it is on to taking the front engine cover off (covers the clutch housing/clutch/starter recoil/flywheel/coil. So you see, there is quite a bit of disassembly involved to get to the starter recoil unit
