SOURCE: craftsman 32cc blower stalls

Your carb is leaning out, causing the thing to die. Try adjusting the mixture screw (out) to richen the mixture. If there is a cap, you can pull it off to go richer. If that doesn't work, either the filter/pickup is plugged, the fuel line is kinked/smashed, or the carb needs to come apart to be cleaned.

slow and steady, there is no shortcut for that machine, find a clean work space and start at the top. They will never win an engineering award for that one

SOURCE: I received an answer for a 25cc gas trimmer,

The routing of the fuel lines is the same. If you have 3 lines, that means the primer bulb is not directly mounted to the carb, rather it is connected to the carb with hoses.

Line 1. Comes from the fuel filter in the tank (smaller diameter hose) directly to the inlet port on the carb. This is the port that is opposite the diaphragm on the carb. Diaphragm is held on with 2 or 4 screws through a chrome plate. Make sure to leave enough hose so the fuel filter will fall to the lowest point of the tank when it is being used.

Line 2. Goes from the other port on the carb to the short side of the primer assembly.

Line 3. Goes from the longer port of the primer assembly and returns to the tank. Sometimes this line will have a simple coupler on the inside of the tank, but it is optional and its only function is to keep the line from slipping out. If yours does not have this coupler, just leave an inch or two of line in the tank.

*If both ports on the primer are the same length, you can test to see which is pushing air out...that's where line 3 goes.

Good luck!

I replaced gaskets and fuel lines now when i prime bulb gas runs out of carb,also need factory settings for H-L and throttle,i know i messed up somewhere?realy need my saw running,thanks


take apart your carb--sounds like your carb diaphram is not installed right the settings should be
1.5 turn out low jet
1 turn out high jet
that should get it running then some fine adjustment once its running

Primer bulb won't pick up fuel, bulb, lines, filter seem ok. bulb creates pressure in the fuel tank when priming but no fuel will enter the bulb.


Hello Steve,
Your problem sounds like an internal problem inside the carburetor. I would first check fuel filter inside tank, but if that's ok, I would remove and clean carb. If you don't feel comfortable with this bring it in to a repair shop. Good luck. Hope this helped!

IN BACKPACK BLOWER USED 4 CYCLE OIL AND NOW RUNS SLOW


YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TOUCH THE CARB!!! Put the right 2cycle fuel mix in with new spark plug and run it, it will gradually pick up R.P.M's as it cleans out. once you get it running hit your primer button while holding it wide open, this will cause it to bog down and possible stall then start it again and do this half dozen times, what it is doing is pulling your fresh gas through the carb, another way is start and hold throttle wide open and work your choke open/shut back and forth several times, You do not have to clean your carb,this is simple problem to fix by doing what I said, Happy Leaf Blowing ! 2StrokeJim

Hi Guru I have a 32cc Craftsman blower .. that i can keep running (only if i keep priming the bulb). I have taken apart the carb and cleaned and applied air to the lines to make sure no blockage. Any...


have you tryed pulling the fuel filter out of the tank and make sure that it is clean as well? If you can get fuel but not much I would assume it is coming from the filter.

Ryobi blower will not start unless primed by


If it is under 2 years old, I would take it to a warranty repair center. The carburetor have been giving some problems so they have needed to be replaced because they are sub standard quality.

I have a 32cc gas trimmer/edger. when i try to use the prme buubble, fuel comes out of the sall tube which I believe is an overflow . I cannot find a model number or the manuel.


you only need to prime one to three times or fuel will come out the overflow .this is normal,prime less and use the choke for the first couple of pulls then turn it to half and squeeze the throttle,it should start.
