Gasoline comes out of air filter and flood out the edger 536796526 Craftsman 9" edger trimmer

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your edger and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 536796526 and the carburetor has a float that controls the needle that regulates the gas level in the bowl of the carburetor. If the seat of the needle has, some debris stuck in it the gas will run out the throat of the carburetor. I recommend removing the main jet of carburetor. This will allow the float bowl to drop down. Then you will see the float. Pull the hinge pin of the float to remove the float. Be careful when the hinge pin is pulled the needle will come out also. Place the float in a cup of water and it should float. If the float is fine, remove the gas line from the carburetor. Use an air compressor to blow air into the area where the needle came from. This should get rid of any debris in the inlet of the carburetor. Do not blow into the hole where the gas line connects. If you do the seat for the needle will come out. Then reassemble the carburetor and test. If the carburetor still leaks, I recommend installing a rebuild kit or replacing the carburetor. I hope this information helps with troubleshooting and if you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information.

Q:

How do i loosen the flange nut on my craftsman edger? Does it loosen clockwise or counter clockwise? 536.796526

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number 536.796526 and the nut will loosen counter clock wise. Alot of times looking at the direction of the treading you are also able to tell the direction the nut will tighten. There is a lock nut on one side and a bolt on the other and the best way will be to get a wrench on each and with both hands try to break the bolt free. It will be extremely tight the first time it is removed. A trick you can try is to use a block of wood to block the blade so it can't turn and try to free the bolt. I hope this information helps.  If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information.
