If you are certain that you have correcting gaped the plug then the next step is to readjust the low end idle carburetor. If you look you should see two holes in the plastic cover that lead to the flow adjustment screws they may even be out in the open. If they are not labeled H and L (the L is the one you want), check your manual for the correct one. A good place to start is turning the screw all the way in then backing it out 1 1\2 turns. Then check it. If you still have problems do 1\4 turns out. After about one full turn from that you might want to consider taking the carburetor off and removing the float bowl or the bottom for a good cleaning. A sticking float could cause problems with your fuel flow.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.

Good Luck, I hope this helped

Hi davemac918...
I used a long pair of tweesers to grab the filter, but you can also grab it with a piece of wire with a hook bent on the end of it large enough to fit the tubing the filter is inserted into.
Hook the filter tubing, and pull the filter to the top of the tank and manuver it out of the tank.

Not sure what you mean but if you are saying the weedwacker head is not engaging it may be the cable that goes from the motor to the weedwacker head and runs down the inside of the shaft.

The carburetor needs to be adjusted very slightly, with a special tool. If still under warranty bring it to the Sears repair center quickly before you damage the engine.
