Q:

Problems with my Craftsman Weed Trimmer.

A:

It can definitely be a disappointment when your weed trimmer starts and then shuts off. I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I attached the link below for you to view. I hope the link that I provided is helpful. Have a nice day.

A:

The problem you describe is almost certainly a problem with the carburetor. It sounds like it could use a good cleaning. Have whomever will be making the repair (or helping) watch THIS VIDEO and then pick up a can of spray carb/choke cleaner from an auto parts store (any brand is fine). Then clean the carburetor as shown in the video. If that does not take care of the problem I'm afraid a new carburetor is likely the answer.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

You don't seem to have the manual for Craftsman Trimmer model #143.005512. Can you help?

A:

Most of the manuals on the Manage My Home site are specific to products, such as for the trimmer itself, and this model number is for an engine only.

Look for another model numbers on the trimmer itself and that number will get you the manual you need.

If you do want a manual relating to just the engine then you can still order a hard copy of that manual through the Sears PartsDirect site or use the part number there to get the manual through your Sears Store. But the basic information you will need to maintain the engine will be also be in the Owner's Manual along with other important maintenance information for the rest of the trimmer so it will probably be your better choice.

There are also some tips on the PartsDirect site on where you might find the model number of the trimmer itself.
