Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

Craftsman Incredi-Pull Weedwhacker Model 316.791860. Upon starting, I am unable to keep it running by use of the throttle. I have to let it run on idle which is very high, and trim without using the lever. Even after engine heats up it remains the same.

Some will say you just need to clean the carburetor but if you put a rebuild kit in it or a diaghram kit (cheaper) you will be cleaning it anyway. This points to a fuel delivery problem and it seems that the mylar fuel pump diaghram inside has stiffened and is no longer functional. Ethanol in the gas and time cause this problem. This usually causes lack of acceleration. A plain diaghram kit may fix this ill if nothing else is wrong. Get your Carb type and model (on carb body) and reference them here for rebuild or diaghram kits!

SOURCE: How do you adjust carb for a Craftsman Incredi-Pull Weedwhacker?

Turn adjustment screw till it almost stops then turn it the other way till it speeds up and starts to stop then turn it half way back and it should work fine but check throttle cable and oil it if it is sticking.

210 2 stroke leaf blower it starts when choked and idles when choked but when i pull the throttle trigger it cuts off. I cleaned the air filter and replaced the plug.


hi mike. most likely problem is junk in the carburator. Get a can of starter fluid and an assistant. Remove the air filter. Start it up and before you pull the throttle have your assistant squirt the starter fluid into the air intake. Use more starter fluid as needed to keep it running for about 2 minutes to clear it.

Sounds like a carb problem. You may need to rebuild it. Check to see if your fuel lines inside the tank have rotted. Common problem on Craftsman.

My craftsman 32 cc 2 cycle line trimmer doesn't


Check the line head and cable, there may be grass or something like twine twisted between the shaft and housing. If nothing is found there take the spark plug out and see if it will turn over, possibly liquid gasoline has gotten into the cylinder somehow.
