Q:

I have a gas bolw 316-794970

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. 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.

Q:

Carburetor adjustment for craftsman blower model 316794970

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the blower. I have looked up you model number and this model requires special screwdrivers to adjust the mixture screws. The reason they where changed was because of the emission law. They did not want the customer to make adjustments and cause high emissions. It is recommended to have the carburetor adjusted by a qualified servicer. Depending on the labor cost in some cases, it is cheaper to replace the carburetor yourself instead of having it repaired.

I had given a customer this information and he wrote back saying he made the adjustments with a small pair of needle nose pliers. He removed the mixture screws and used a hacksaw to cut a slot in the head of the screw so he could adjust the carburetor with a small flat blade screwdriver. I cannot advise doing this.

I hope this is helpful.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair of the blower.
