Clean you needle/ seat inside carb pull apart and clean all out and try it off the w.w. to see if primer works ,also the primer has a check valve internally also make sure that is working, if the primer won;t pull gas through carb it won;t run 2StrokeJim

How to replace fuel lines on model#358.791010


I had the same problem. If you replace the lines and you get them swapped, it just won't run. Nothing will be damaged. So then just swap them around. There are only two choices. Trial and error worked for me!

Crafsman 25cc weedwacker won't stay running


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

I have a Craftsman Weedwacker 25cc 358.791030 that won't start. Primer bulb is not getting gas. Gas line is connected to the filter resting at the bottom of the gas tank. The line for the primer bulb...


that line should be longer, it contains the filter which is the pick up, and should rest inside the tank fully,, see if its possible to pull that line farther into the tank, its not going to start until the primer bulb fills

Weedwacker -purchased more than a year ago, never been able to start it. Lost owner's manual - can I get a copy on line?


Should be able to google model #. Make sure you have a 40:1 fuel oil mix. Pump primer bulb 4-5 times, put on full choke, when attempts to start set choke to half. After it starts open choke. If won't start and has been sitting for months with fuel in it, the carb is more than likley gummed up.If you paide less than $100.00 for it it is not worth having it repaired at a shop. You can although purchase a new carb at eparts, or sears parts direct for around $ 30.00. Just need the model#. Good luck.

Machine will start but won't stay running. give some gas and it runs for a couple of seconds and then dies. i did replace the spark plug but it is doing the same thing. it is a 25cc craftsman weedwacker...


I had a similar problem and it was simple to fix. I hope yours is the same. The line going into the gas tank is not far enough down in the tank.Once you prime it with the primer bulb , it will run till that gas is gone. No fuel from the tank is getting to the carburetor. If you've replaced the fuel lines recently, this may be your problem. If not, try cleaning the fuel tank and the carburetor. Hope this helps.

I have a craftsman 32cc weedwacker line trimer. Having trouble starting it. I noticed that the fuel lines didn't look to good so I replaced both. Installed a new spark plug and put in a fresh tank of gas...


Sounds as if the Carb needs to be cleaned out. Get yourself a can of non-chlorinated brake cleaner and spray the carb out really well. Then reinstall the carb. Also check any ports in the carb to make sure there isn't any debris blocking the flow of fuel. I would also suggest getting some Stabil Marine (blue) fuel stabilizer. The ethanol in gas destroys small engine carbs. Just mix this in with your gas tank the next time you fill up. How old is this fuel? The ethanol also absorbs water, so even while in the gas can it is obtaining moisture. The Stabil Marine formula helps lesson the effects of the ethanol.

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

Problem with primer bulb


Reverse the line connections at the primer bulb. Look carefully, the long port has the line going to the tank, the short port on the bulb will connect with the fuel line to the carb.

Craftsman weedwacker keeps dying


If the weedwacker runs OK on 1/2 choke or even better on full choke then most likely the cause is the carb gaskets are stiff and can no longer pump the fuel. Of course make sure the fuel lines are are the right ports (return and supply). While you have the carb apart clean all of the passages with carb cleaner.
