Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to seat the jet screws.
But before you seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

I have a mcklean 3hp edger that won't start it tries were can I find how to fix this problem repair manual for the carb


If this is an older edger with a 3 hp Briggs and Stratton engine, there is a diaphram in the side of the carb. Look for a plate approx 1"x1.5" with about 6 screws in it.
Remove those screws, and you'll find a paper thin rubber diaphram and a spring. Replace that diaphram, you can use the old spring. There is one spring loaded carb adjustment screw, close it all the way, and then open it 1 and1/2 turns.

Troy Bilt edger manual


To get a manual for a Troy-Bilt product, you need the model number. For some units, the serial number is also needed to obtain the correct version of the manual. The needed information is on the edger itself, in a spot that usually will not get damaged when you are using the machine. For wheeled edgers, look at the rear of the deck when you are in the operator's position. The string trimmer/edger models similarly have the plaque with the model and serial number in a spot that won't get damaged.

Start here: http://www.troybilt.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/HelpView?storeId=10001&catalogId=14102&langId=-1 . Fill in the model and serial numbers and then click Find Manual.

If you add a comment with the model number, I will be glad to look up the exact location of the manual for you. This would be a link to a PDF.

I hope this helps.

I bought a Sears edger #536 796526. It dies on me.


Hi Tom. You are not doing anything wrong. That being said, your edger has a slightly gummed up carbeurator. I would go to an auto parts store and get a can of a product called seafoam. this is a gasoline additive. Add one ounce per gallon of gas and use this as the fuel for your edger. You will solve your problem in just a few minutes after using this product, I believe. Give it a try and let me know.
