Question about Craftsman 25cc Gas Line Trimmer

1 Answer

I have an older 25cc craftsman weedwacker. It will start great and run well for about a half hour then it starts to run slower and slower until its barely running and finally just dies and wont restart. The carb has been cleaned.

Sears & Craftsman 25cc Weedeater brand new starts but will not stay running?


Try leaving the chokey partially engaged. Operate it this way for a few minutes until the engine is thoroughly heated then move to the run position. If this does not work return it.

You probably have a bad hose or a bad hose connection that is sucking mostly air instead of delivering full fuel to the carburetor!

Sounds like a carb problem. You may need to rebuild it. Check to see if your fuel lines inside the tank have rotted. Common problem on Craftsman.

Fuel Lines - 25cc Craftman weedwacker


Your Craftsman Trimmer/weedwacker:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=358795591+&pathTaken=partSearch

Best Poulan Engine Match (probably real manufacturer):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/BC2400-Gas-Trimmer-Type-6/75.BC2400-Gas-Trimmer-Type-6.1.59.1.html

My decisions are being driven by my experience with Poulan chainsaws. Small hose in tank (long enough to reach all corners), filter on bottom, connects to lowest connection on carburetor. Small hose on upper carburetor connection to small fitting on primer. Large hose from large connection on primer through largest tank hole, roughly mid tank long. nothing on bottom. I suggest you leave the 2 connections on the carburetor long enough they can be swapped (just in case) then try it. if no go swap them.

Typical fuel system and a suggestion or two:

This is how I would configure it if a chainsaw, doubtful they would do something completely different. In defense of Jerry, he knows how it should be done, clarity of instruction could use some help. Good Luck. HTH

The weedwacker dies when I squeeze the throttle trigger


You need to clean the carburetor. Remove and disassemble carb. Use a den Tek Brush, (used to clean between teeth), to clean the small portals in carb. Use a carb. cleaner while cleaning. Make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debris. The smallest of paticles can cause the carb. not to run right. Reassemble the carb. and try starting. If there is no change, then you will need to buy a carb. kit for your trimmer. Replace all appropriateparts: gaskets, diaphragm, needle valve, and the small screen.
