Unfortunately there is no way to clean the carb without removing it, and disassembling it, you can replace the fuel filter in the fuel tank fairly easily, just hook the hose out through the open filler hole, pull the filter off the end of the hose and replace with new.

SOURCE: Snapper SS312 weed eater. Cranks when primed but won't run

I am sorry to say this, but the compression for that type of engine should be atleast 120 psi. Remove the muffler and look at the cylinder, it is scarred beyond repair.

SOURCE: Can't get weed eater started. Have an older weed

This is a common problem on older Poulan models. Press the primer button 10 times and pull the starter rope twice, then pull the spark plug and examine it. If the plug is wet that means gas is definitely getting to the combustion chamber. Next thing is to use a compression tester. If you do not have a compression tester but have an AutoZone anywhere near you, you can get a loaner from them. Screw the compression tester into the plug hole and pull the start rope 4 times. If the tester reads anything below 90psi, you have a bad ring and will have to take the motor apart to clean the piston and ring or replace the ring.

Keep me posted on what you find, ok? I can walk you through the procedure to replace the ring if necessary. Good Luck!

It sounds like the carb needs adjusted. Things can even happen to new weed eaters.

Have you replaced the spark plug? They foul quite easily. Or, you might be better off taking it to a small engine repair shop for a tune-up.

I have the featherlite weed wacker the prime button won't come up when i push it down' won't start


For the bulb to come back up it needs to easily pull fuel from the carb, if the filter in the tank is blocked, or there is dirt in the carb the bulb will not come back up, replace the filter in the tank, if no better you need to clean the internall filter in the carb.

Ran well the 1st yr. Added Stabil - would not start this yr. Have put fresh gas in but will not start.


you added stabil but did you run the gas out of the carb? Take the carb apart and klean all with carb cleaner, spray in all holes. Check the plug gap of the new plug while your into the unit anyway the gap should only be 1mm.

Craftsman Weed Eater only runs on choke (not at all now!)


Check the mounting screws holding the carburettor and the plate behiend the carb, they often become loose, also the gaskets, they might need renewing. Your carb. could need cleaning and new diaphrams. stephen.

New fuel lines, wont stay run, swapt in/out line, wont stay run


Sometimes simply removing the carb and placing it in a carb dip will clean it without tearing it apart, also check or replace the spark plug. Make sure you have compression, good spark, and that fuel is getting to the carb. If that doesnt work, email me and I'll find you a diagram. Jblee1975@yahoo.com

No Gas to Primer Bulb


It sounds like the carburetor needs cleaned. Take the carb. apart and clean it with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tech Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), they are perfect for cleaning the small ports in carb. If that still doesn't work, you may need to buy a carb. kit for your weed eater. If so, replace the gaskets and valve needle, and also make sure to replace the small screen. this should all come in the new carb. kit.
