Question and Answers

Q:

blower will not start all new parts 358794964

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the blower not starting. I know how frustrating that is.

It sounds like you've put in a lot of time and effort in getting it started. Sometimes the issue is the smallest things. I would check the gaskets on the carburetor adapater. If the gasket has cracked, it can cause it to not want to start. That gasket is offered in the gasket set 530071458. 

You know you have spark, and I presume fuel is making it to the carburetor. So if you have fuel and spark, the only other ingredient is compression. This would be more difficult to check, but you can get a compression gauge to check compression. You will want to see a compression of 90-100 PSI. If it's any lower than that, you will have internal engine issues. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

My Craftsman gasoline powered blower will not run except when the choke is full or between full and half full.

A:

A blower is very handy to use especially when you have a large concrete area. While your waiting on an expert response you can visit your local Sears repair shop so they can assist you with diagnosing the problem with your blower. I have provided the link below to help you locate your local repair shop. Good luck!

When a gasoline engine runs only when the choke is on or partially on it is because the engine is drawing air from somewhere other than the venturi of the carburetor. I suspect one of your fuel lines is cracked or rubbed and is leaking air into the carburetor.

I recommend you replace the fuel lines. I am sending you a diagram of the routing for the fuel lines in case you need it.

I appreciate the expert answer, but I am sorry to say that the new fuel lines did not take care of the problem. Now that new fuel lines have been installed and as stated previously, all of the other parts that have been replaced, do you have any other ideas? The only other part that I am aware of that I could replace and that could be a part of the problem is the carburetor. Would this be cost effective for a 3-year old blower or do you think it would be better to put my money on a new machine? Thanks again.

I apologize for giving you the wrong information. I thought the fuel lines would solve the problem. I agree the problem is probably in the carburetor. I don't think it is cost effective to replace a carburetor on a blower that is 3 years old. I recommend you replace the blower.

Good day to all - I have a 358.797341 Craftsman Leaf Blower with carburetor 530071775. Stopped running and wanted to make sure I checked everything possible before having someone else fix it. Will there was dirt in the one screen below the primer bulb plate, so I carefully removed it. Made sure I was getting gas to the carb, and if I left the fuel lines (intake and exit lines hooked up, I saw no gas going to the primer bulb. Know is where I really screwed up, rather then leaving the carburetor upside down when removing bottom plate. I had it side ways and when I went to remove the plates, a little sliver of metal (flat, oblong with rounded corners) about 3/4" or so fell to the ground. And yes I don't know where it goes to properly making engine run. For sure with the plate off, I press in the center of area where I removed the plate and gas appears in good flow. Can someone please help me. Either provide a diagram or drawing of how that piece of metal should be placed. Thanks Rick

Richard, we don't have any information for rebuilding the carburetor on your leaf blower. I suggest you go to www.searspartsdirect.com and order a new carburetor. I am sorry we don't have the information you need.
