How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Loose, Dirty or Disconnected Spark Plug in Your Lawn Mower: Check it out, clean off debris, re-connect and tighten. Dirty Air Filter: Clean or replace. Fuel Not Reaching the Engine: Tap the side of the carburetor to help the flow of gas. If this doesn`t work, you might need a new fuel filter.
The most common problem with a string trimmer is that the unit runs out of string. The string may also be twisted or loose on the spool. The cutting head may be dirty or the head outlet guide may be bent. An electric trimmer`s power cord, switch, or motor may fail.
A clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the string trimmer for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to run roughly.
We`re very pleased with the runtime we`re seeing from the Craftsman V60 battery Weedwacker. Testing at high speed with a light load, we ran for just over 30 continuous minutes. That`s plenty of trigger time to cover most lawns. Low nets you even more runtime.

The average lifespan of a captive-reared grasscutter ranges from 7-9 years. They can live up to 12 years depending on health care given to the animals during their service lives.

Just Like Spark plug fouling, too much oil in the gasoline, inferior oil, a dirty air filter and/or continued operation at less than full throttle will plug the screen with carbon deposits. This prevents exhaust gases from flowing out, which leads to power loss or not running at all.
A blocked or dirty fuel filter

You need air for your initial spark – and if oxygen cannot move readily through the system you will have problems both starting and keeping your whipper snipper running. Wash the air filter in soap and hot water, then allow to air-dry.

Start a warm engine on a Weed Eater without engaging the choke to avoid flooding the carburetor. The telltale sign of a flooded engine is the strong scent of gasoline and no fire from the spark plug.
Using a weed-eater in the rain or in damp conditions doesn`t pose as much of a threat because the tool itself cannot conduct electricity – it`s the electrical cord that can.
A: Yes, battery can be left in the charger indefinitely.
To sum it all up, the bare minimum that most manufacturers expect from their batteries is around 3 years or 1,000 charging cycles. With that said—we say “put your warranty where your mouth is.” Bosch, DeWalt, Metabo HPT, Makita, Milwaukee Tool, EGO, and Ridgid all warranty their Lithium-ion batteries for 2–3 years.
The run time of the trimmer is 10-15 minutes per battery on a fully charged battery. Battery run time may vary depending upon factors including but not limited to charging conditions, battery maintenance, storage and environmental conditions.
As a general rule, grass clippings of an inch or less in length can be left on your lawn where they will filter down to the soil surface and decompose quickly. Remove longer clippings because they can shade or smother grass beneath causing lawn damage.
To keep things in simple terms, a grass trimmer is suited to trimming edges, hard to reach lawn areas, and providing finishing touches to lawns. On the other hand, brushcutters are designed to take on dense weeds, fibrous grass and areas of thick vegetation that a grass trimmer would struggle to cut.
If the engine is low on power, it will bog down when you try to accelerate. This could be caused by a number of different issues, including low compression, a bad timing belt, sucking too much air, or even a head gasket leak.
2 strokes may have a more erratic idle just because of the way the engine works and the timing of each power stroke. A 2 stroke that doesn`t idle for more than 30 more than likely has the idle set too low or the jetting needs to be corrected.
The manufacturers were not able to control the pollution levels that were emitted from the two-stroke engine and because of which they couldn`t comply with the new emission standards that were set by most of the countries. Because of this, the two-stroke engine had to be killed.
Turn on the ignition switch and pull the starting cord quickly. You should see a spark in the plug gap. Since the spark may be faint, it may help to do the test in a dark area. If there is no spark, check for a broken or shorted (bare) lead wire or bad switch.
A seized engine is locked up, no movement of internal parts. It WILL NOT run. It won`t even crank over.
If your trimmer engine idles, but stalls on throttle, check the following parts: the gasket, primer bulb, fuel filter, air filter, fuel vent, fuel line, and carburetor. The repair and symptom guide will help you better identify the part needed to be replaced and how.
When trying to start a flooded engine, the end goal is to re-establish the fuel-air balance in your vehicle. To do so, simply open the hood of the car and let the excess of fuel evaporate. After waiting for some minutes, try starting your car again, keeping your foot away from the gas pedal.
Furthermore, wet grass can be slippery, and it can be difficult to maintain your balance when holding and working with a tool on wet turf. Even a simple slip can result in injury, so it`s better to wait for good weather before using your electric or battery powered grass trimmer.
Leaving the choke on while operating will result in excessive fuel consumption, irregular engine power performance and eventually may even damage the engine.
If your bike is only running with the choke on, it`s probably because it`s running too lean. This can be caused by a few different things: All internal combustion engines need three things to run: fuel, air, and spark. If any of these are missing or not working properly, the engine won`t run.

My 32cc weedwacker starts up fine on full choke, move slowly to 1/2 and it will run strong for a couple seconds and then just shuts off. It does this over and over.

Craftsman 32cc Trimmer Runs with choke at idle, then stalls
ANSWER : Sounds like somewhere you have a air leak. Most likely it’s somewhere near the carburetor intake or maybe the carb itself. Could be a line from the primer if it has one and i do believe it should that could be leaking or loose. Good luck.

Problem with primer bulb
ANSWER : Reverse the line connections at the primer bulb. Look carefully, the long port has the line going to the tank, the short port on the bulb will connect with the fuel line to the carb.

How do you change a craftsman 32cc weedwacker gas filter in the gas tank?
ANSWER : Hi davemac918…
I used a long pair of tweesers to grab the filter, but you can also grab it with a piece of wire with a hook bent on the end of it large enough to fit the tubing the filter is inserted into.
Hook the filter tubing, and pull the filter to the top of the tank and manuver it out of the tank.
