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.

simple enough prob - go to any local mower repair shop or hardware store and buy the small bottles that you mix with 1 gal of gas - all 2 cycle engines can use it - it makes life so much easier-

I have a Craftsman and you should have a separate attachment to it. Your motor will turn the same, instead of pushing air out the pipe, you will draw air in through the air intake.

check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

There is a round grille on the bottom of the unit. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the latch to release it and reveal the vacuum opening. You should have a two-piece intake pipe that will attach to the opening.

The collection bag attaches to the smaller outlet where the blower pipe used to be (unscrew the wing nut to release the blower pipe). The bag clips onto the hooks at the base of the opening.

Craftsman 32cc/170 mph leaf blower. Why does it die after a few minutes running?


Is this a consistent situation? Starts, runs then dies after a little while?
If so, sounds like carburetor/fuel pump (which is a one way diagraphm) issue.
Take carburetor apart, and also obtain a rebuild kit for it. Clean it well, compressed air through all the jets, replace the parts from the kit and reassemble. Re-install back onto unit.
Also... Replace Spark Plug, fuel filter and clean the spark Arrestor screen at muffler.

I have a gas craftsman leaf blower/vac 32cc. it starts ok but it wont shut off. what can I try?


Hi, W/D here.

There should be a switch at the front of the machine that you can depress to break the power and shut the machine down. Most of these type switches will go to off only as long as you hold the switch down, then return to the run position when you let off of it. Take a closer look, and you should see it.
Best regards, --W/D--

I have a Craftsman model 358.797920 32cc blower want to know the mixture of gas per twocycle oil?


Most of these mix at 50 to 1. 500ml of oil to 5 gallons of gasoline should do it. If you don't feel comfortable with this mixture try 40 to 1.
