Weedeater stops abruptly and does not want to start back 358796160 Craftsman Weedwacker

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your weed eater. Upon researching model 358796160; I recommend that you disconnect the spark plug and clean the carburetor, over time the carburetors small passages can become clogged by old fuel when it is not treated before storing. This problem will not allow the fuel to travel consistently to keep the unit running.

Q:

clean change spark arrester 358796160 Craftsman Weedwacker

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Just remove the muffler deflector screw and remove the deflector on the side of the muffler. This will gain you access to the spark arrestor. 

The most common means to clean them is to heat them up with a torch. Once you have it out, you can typically see if it's clogged. You could also replace it, and the part number is 697038. There are some YouTube videos out there that will show how to clean them if you're interested. 

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

Q:

The kill switch (off position) does not promptly stop the Craftsman Weedwackermodel #358796160 358796160 Craftsman Weedwacker

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

It sounds like it will still shut the engine down, just not immediately. I would recommend pulling the switch and wires and clean the contacts. Also check the switch connection at the armature magneto and make sure it's secure and cleaned. If that doesn't make a difference, there could be an issue starting with either the switch or the magneto. You can test the switch itself for continuity. If all that checks out, the issue would likely be with the magneto. 

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