Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

This is the third time I'm having trouble with my 27 CC, Model 79108 weed wacker. The first one I sent back twice for repair. Each time it came back with a different excuse. The last time they said there was a bent shaft, and the gas mixture was bad. When it came back I put Sear' premixed gas in it. Butwith the same result. It would not start at all, so I sent it back. Today I picked up the replacement. It started right up and ran 2 hours fine. But when I went to restart it a few hours later it would not start. I used fresh gas and added 2cycle oil in a 40:1

It would take a lot to bend a crankshaft on these. Even if the bearings became worn or shot, the shaft would just seize on the bearing suface. If a rod let go, would probably be the only way one would get bent, if then. I'm not buying their excuse...unless they meant to say the shaft is out of round...could have been a factory defect. As for your current problem, sometimes when the machine sits after using, "heat soak" can cause a situation similar to vapor lock in the small fuel lines as they run right next to the engine on most models and absorb some of the heat coming off the engine. If it does it, pull the back cover off quickly and observe the fuel lines. Is it bubbling...are there air gaps in the lines? When a newer machine won't start, it usually is in need of a carburetor adjustment, which the EPA rules have made it increasingly difficult for the end consumer to do theirself.

Have a Ryobi weed wacker 725r 31cc click link Trimmer Plus. No more line-can't figure out how to remove bottom to replace the line or what kind of line to replace with. Deceased husband lost directions...


i also have a ryobi weed wacker. if it is the same. you don"t have to remove the button. line up the 2 arrows one on wheel with bumpy edges and one by the button. you should see 2 holes feed a 2-3 foot piece of line into the hole the line comes out of for cutting and it should come out of a curved holw on the bottom by the button .tuck the end into a small round hole . pull line tight (tug on the section that you cut with). wind the string by turn the ring around the button. til desired length. if this doesn't work. google you model # and look for a manual (manual for ryobi weed wacker model # ------------.)

I cannot figure out how to open and respool the string on my mod 2816 mc culloch weed wacker and i do not have a manual.


I stopped in at a local lawn mower/small engine sales and repair shop and asked them if they could help me and they told me what to try before i brought it in to have them fix it. Their information proved to be very helpful and they saved me the trouble of bringing the weed wacker in. I now can reload the string myself.

Double spool on Weed Wacker


This isn't a solution to the problem. However, I think you should talk to someone at Home Depot or Lowes or wherever you bought the model, and see if the string is in there correctly; if it is, then u'r weed wacker must have some other mechanical problem. Sometimes it is just best to buy a new one. The more expensive models are the best.
