Q:

how to remove push nut on head assembly on craftsman weed eater 316791191

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. To remove the push nut you will need a small flat blade screwdriver and a pair of needle nose pliers. Use the screwdriver to get under the push nut and force it up a little. The grab a hold of the nut with the needle nose pliers and work if off the shaft. In most cases the push nut will break. That is normal.

Q:

weedeater won't start

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the trimmer. If the fuel mixture in the trimmer 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 lines. If they are hard and brittle, they have to be replaced. Here is a video that shows how to replace the fuel lines. If the fuel lines are 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 trimmer can be ordered from the following link. Parts for Craftsman trimmer
