Question about Craftsman 25cc Gas Line Trimmer
Hi nd erl;come to FixYa. I am Kelly
You most likely have some corrosion on the cylinder walls or crank shaft / rod end bearing.
Remove the spark plug and spray a generous amount of WD 40 into the spark plug hole. Let it sit over night. The next day try pulling the recoil. If that does not work you will have to remove the air shroud, grasp the flywheel NOT by the fins and rock it back and forth until the engine turns freely. After it rotates freely... dump out the WD 40. Allow several minutes with the cylinder head inverted for the WD 40 to drain. Then attempt a start after re-installing the spark plug. If the WD 40 keeps fouling the plug you can very carefully wash the cylinder with gas... just stay away from any sparks or flames and make sure to wipe up / dry off any residual fuel.
Since you did not include a model number this a generic response that should get you going again. If there is a problem with the re-coil... again I need the model number please.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
