Q:

Craftsman gas leaf blower model 358797203

A:

Thank you for your question on the recoil starter for the string trimmer.

During the repair did you wind the spring tight enough to give a good pull on the rope?

Does it grip the flywheel dogs when you pull and rope and are the flywheel dogs pivoting freely?

If that seems to be okay then I think there is a problem with the center support for the rope pulley and it is binding on the support.

You may have to replace the pulley.

Please let me know what you discover and we can continue to troubleshoot with that information.

Thank you for the update on the starter spring winding. I think you may have damaged the spring by winding it backwards. Is it possible that you have to long of a rope or did you use the predetermined size for the blower starter recoil. What I usually do is attached the rope to the pulley and then use the rope right next to the pulley to wind the spring (clockwise to wind the spring) and when it gets tight I then pinch and hold the rope and the pulley and then feed the rope through the eyelet on the starter housing to the outside and then let the rope slowly flow back in and then cut off the excess that it does not draw in.

Thank you for the update Don. The fuel line for the pickup with the fuel filter on the end in the tank is the small line. The return line is the larger one. If you use the part number 530069599 will give you the two fuel lines and a set of installation instructions. You should be able to get this locally or you can order by the link below. Sam A.

Q:

model # 358797203 leaf blower not getting fuel to carburator new lines how to troubleshoot

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the trimmer. The small line should have the fuel filter on the end. This line should be long enough that the filter is on the bottom of the fuel tank. The larger line should only push into the tank about a half inch. I believe the other end of the large line connects to the top port on the carburetor. If the trimmer will not fire with the lines connected that way reverse the lines and check it again. If you still have problems, I recommend cleaning the carburetor. Please click here to watch a video on how to clean the carburetor. Use caution when working with fuel.
