Any petroleum based cleaner added to the fuel will dilute the gas/oil mixture, thinning it and possibly not allowing enough lubrication during operation; if this is a 2-stroke engine. This is not recommended. Removing the carburetor and cleaning it is usually the best and accepted way to go.
You can do this on a 4-stroke engine and there are many, many choices for fuel system cleaners available for these. You just pour the cleaner into the fuel tank and run it. If this is a 4-stroke, then check for cleaners at your local auto parts store.

My Craftsman 17cc gas weed trimmer wouldn't start.


Hi There, Check the primer bulb for tare or pin holes. Replace it. Check and clean carb jet it maybe plugged with debree. Also check for spark which you didn't say. Replace with correct plug.
Note; Do not use strong cleaners on rubber seals (O rings and gaskets) They dry up and crack.
If needed use a dabble of grease on seals

I have a 25 cc Craftsman weedeater. Using fresh 40:1 gas. I've replaced the fuel lines, cleaned in tank filter, cleaned and rebuilt carb and getting spark, but it still won't start. Also cleaned...


the other possibilities you have is a bad crank seal, or a flywheel came loose and its out of time, will it fire on carb cleaner sprayed in the carb, If it runs for seconds and , then I would say it's not getting fuel, If it only farts once or twice then I would check crank seals cause if they are leaking then your crankcase cannot draw vacumn which in turn causes fuel pump in carb to draw fuel, If you have to check flywheel pull it apart and take flywheel nut off and pull flywheel off and inspect the key that is built into flywheel to see if it is sheared off or messed up, also while checking muffler check for the opening that the mud dobbers havent put mud in muffler pipe, good luck

I need to know the gas to oil ratio on my 17" 25 cc craftsman weed eater.


4 oz of a generic 2-cycle oil to a gallon of fuel is the typical mix.

I hope this helps.

Craftsman 24 cc gas/oil weed whacker. Cannot pull the string.


Pull the spark plug,
Squirt a little creeper oil (WD40, 3-in-1, etc.) into the chamber, let sit for a few minutes, and (without the plug) try a few gentle pulls to free up the stuck rings.
Once they move, even a little, tip the head over to drain the oil and add a few drops of mixed gas before replacing the plug.

Replace the gas with mix, and add a tablespoon of Marvel Mystery oil* to the tank...Crank it a few times to get the cylinder free.

* Love this stuff...It will finish cleaning the cylinder and ports, and it's the best deal in fuel system cleaners.

Craftsman trimmer won't start


Let's start with the easy stuff first. Remove and clean the spark plug. Look into the tank and fish out the fuel filter. It should be stuck in the end of the fuel line in the tank. I usually use a short piece of coathanger with a small hook bent into the end of it. Clean or replace the fuel filter. The next thing is to clean the small screen at the exhaust. Remove any carbon build-up there that you can. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

You shouldn't notice a difference if you remove the air filter. So I would replace it. Also if you are using compressed air to clean or blow-out the carb. Be careful, its not recommended and could make it worse.

Craftsman 25 cc weedeater keeps shuting off, was running fine


Probably fuel line into tank has hole in it, If over 5 years old these fuel lines become brittle and break easy. Go to local hardware or repair shop that has small engine parts and you should find the fuel lines. Be sure to take sample with you as there are many sizes. If you have trouble installing them get back to me. Be sure you know how the lines are routed before removing.
