Question about Craftsman Garden
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.
