No Sears does NO repair work themselves.They send it to a repair facility. Tell your husband to take off the air filter cover,drip NOW I MEAN DRIPing a few drops of 2 cycle fuel into the carburetor ,close the choke and pull the rope.This may take a couple of times of doing this before it fires . If it does not fire and he knows for sure there is spark. Then the blower is problably toast. THESE blowers are made cheap and only last a few hrs. of run time,Unfortunately.
That machine is made my POULAN I have scrapped out at least a dozen this season because they are worn out and with no hrs on them to speak of.
Sorry

My craftsman 32cc leaf blower won't stay running


Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.May need to clean or replace carburetor.

Plugged it in and it won't run but it was running fine when I put it away two weeks ago.


Check the plug for loose wire or at blower where wire it enters to make sure the wire was not pulled and disconnected inside. If after looking and it is not a wire, check the brushes on the motor. They could be worn out or not making a good contact. Blow out brush housing and re-install brush sometimes this works. That's about all I can think of unless there is a safety switch then check that. Good luck.

Won't start --has gas--has spark craftsman leaf bower


most likely the air filter is clogged, take it out blow it out or spray water through it and allow it to dry completely.

alterinavely, just pouring a small amount of gas onto the filter should make it work, i would do that even if you do clean it properly.

this method works for cars too!

Won't start


May have moisture in the fuel. Try draining the old fuel out, put in new, add Stabil, or some other fuel stabilizer, clean & gap plug. Should start.

I have an old Craftsman leaf blower and it won't


most likley a fuel problem, start by replacing the fuel lines, fuel filter and diaphragm and gasket set in the carb. Non use is the worst thing for any 2 chcle small engine. The modern gasoline that contains ethanol, spoils in about 3 weeks and damages these parts.
