Weedwacker Model No. 316.795861 primer bulb won't prime.
My Craftsman Weedwacker Model no. 316.795861 bought 10 11 2011 the primer bulb doesn't push any gas so it won't start. I tried undoing the gas cap and pushing the primer bulb and it still doesn't fill up eith gas or push any gas. I can't get mine primed. The primer bulb doesn't fill up and no gas is pushed into the carburetor. Do I need to replace the primer bulb and two gas lines? If so, where can I gfet the bulb and the plastic lines?

When the Craftsman weed wacker will not start because of not enough fuel getting to the carburetor, it sounds like an easy fix according to the link provided below. I hope this is helpful. Expert response may take 24-48 hours for model number specifics, thanks for your patience. If you decide on service, that link is also provided below.

Check the fuel lines to make sure they are not broken. If they are complete with no cracks or pinches then the carburetor will need to be serviced. If the fuel lines are broken, you can take a section from each of the fuel lines to your local hardware store to have the lines matched up and get about 6-12 inches of each size line.
