can't start crafsman gas line trimmer


Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the trimmer. The part number for the spark plug is RCJ 6Y. You can order the spark plug from the following link. Sparkplug for craftsman trimmer model 358791520 If the sparkplug does not cure the problem please use the following information. 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. The parts for the trimmer can be ordered from the following link. Parts for Craftsman trimmer
