Husqvarna weed eater starts , but blows alot of smoke & then stalls out


Rod, Carb. may need adjusted, try loosening gas cap and start to see if cap vent plugged, there is a in tank fuel filter that you could fish out and remove to see if it is plugged. If still not running remove muffler and clean spark arrester screen, if screen plugged the trimmer will do this.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I have a craftsman 32cc weedwhacker trimmer and its brand new and it hasnt started from day one it isnt getting any spark at all


If you have spark problems, remove the wire and then remove the plug, reattach the wire and ground the plug to the engine and pull the string, you should see arc and hear it pop, if not, take the plug to another piece of equipment and remove that equipment's plug wire and attach it to the plug from the weed ******* and then ground it and test it. If still no spark, then plug bad, if plug then the weed ******* has a problem with the spark plug wire or the ignition coil.

If you have spark at first test, then the problem with the weed ******* is somewhere else.

Weed wacker started and wacked some weeds then the strings stopped rotating but engine very strong


pull off string housing check that all parts are there. run machine and see if shaft is turning-- if it is then put housing back on sometimes I havent put the housing on properly. if shaft is not turning. then repair is needed. or just buy a new one. cost of repairs on this stuff is not worth the cost. unless it's a profesional grade machine..

I am trying to change the string on a Craftsman Weed Trimmer


Usually you "Push in" as you turn them. Or...there is a knob with a male thread shaft screwed into place holding it all tight. Hold the spool steady as you try to turn the knob off. Or...there is simply a "nut" to take off. But for the most part the newer wacker spools usually just "push in and turn/twist" out. Simple. to reinstall it or replace it with a new one simply push and twist it the opposite removal direction. FYI most lines can be manually "rewound/refilled" by yourself and reused over and over until they really wear out. There are little tricks to doing a rewinding but it isn't anywhere near difficult to do...or learn. Usually the price of a replacement spool is 5 times the cost of rewinding them yourself. Comon its easy! If ya want I'll help ya thru it.

Do it yourself repair: common repairs for a weed eater Amazingly, weed eaters are one of the simplest yard tools to take care of. One of the first things you should do to keep your weed eater in good condition is to clean it. It is important not to clean your weed eater with water or gas, which may destroy the engine. The best, and easiest way to clean it is by blowing off dirt and grass with an air compressor or a leaf-blower after every use. The next most important thing to maintain on your weed eater is string. When the string gets low you can remove the lower part of the head (the part that the string comes out of) by pushing in slightly and turning the head counterclockwise. Cut the new string no shorter than 6 inches or the weed eater will not advance the string properly when in use. Thread the string back though the guides, making sure to follow the arrows on the guide. If the string is not put through the guides the right way, the head may pop off during use. Next, replace the bottom of the head by pushing and turning clockwise. You can totally skip this step by buying a string replacement cartridge. Though it is much more expensive, it saves you the trouble of having to restring your weed eater yourself. window.google_render_ad(); If you find that the head of your weed eater is worn on bottom or hard to get off to replace the string then it is time to replace it. This can be done very simply by unscrewing the two screws at the top of the head and slipping it off. Then, just slide the new one on and tighten the screws. After a few months of use, you may find that your weed eater is losing power or that it is making a strange lower pitched noise. This may be caused by a dirty filter. To check, unscrew the knob or wing nut on the carburetor. Inside you will find a small square screen, this is the filter. If the filter is gray or black then it is time for it to be cleaned. The easiest way to clean it is to blow it out with an air compressor. It can also be washed with plain water, but you must let it dry before placing it back into the carburetor. Once the filter is white or only light grey it is ready to use again. Always make sure to mix the gas and two-cycle oil in the proportions that are listed in the weed eater’s manual. Never use anything but two-cycle oil, normal car oil will not work and will damage your engine.
