Q:

Motor stalls after only a few seconds running 358797921 Craftsman Gas blower

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the blower. If the fuel mixture in the blower is older than 5 weeks old, it should be drained. Then refill with fresh fuel mix. If this does not help I suspect there is a problem with the fuel system. I recommend checking in the fuel tank first. When you look in the tank, you should see a fuel line with a white filter attached to the end. Then inspect the fuel line. If it is hard and brittle, it has to be replaced.    Here is a video that shows how to replace the fuel line.The video shows the basics for replacing the fuel line. Your model may need more disassemble to access the fuel lines. If the fuel line is fine, I suspect the carburetor is to blame. The carburetor will have to be cleaned or replaced. Here is a video that show how to clean the carburetor. Before you remove the carburetor, make sure to note the fuel line and cable connections. This will save a lot of frustration later. The parts for the blower can be ordered from the following link. Parts for Craftsman blower

 

If this does not cure the problem, I recommend removing the muffler. Then check the operation. If the engine runs fine, you need to clean the screen in the muffler.

Hey Mark, Thanks for your time and answers. The fuel is fresh and mixed as close to the required 40 to 1 ratio as i could. How do you measure 2 tenths of an ounce? I will check fuel line and filter and every thing else you mentioned. I have spoken to others and they have mentioned the fuel diaphram and a carb rebuild. When the engine did start at full throttle it would die quickly. It would start and run briefly with no throttle but would die immediatly if i squeezed the throttle. This suggests to me a fuel delivery problem. What do you think? Thanks again. Alan

A:

Alan, Base on the details you submitted I recommend cleaning the carburetor. If the diaphragm is stiff, I recommend replacing the carburetor. The reason is the whole carburetor is only 10 dollars more than the kit. I often see customers order a kit only to find one of the passages in the carburetor is too plugged to clean out. Please let me know how the repair goes. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.
