Craftsman Weedwacker trimmer, model no. 316.791191

July 10th, 2011

Purchased on 7-9-11, assembled today. Followed starting instructions and trimmer would not start, seemed flooded and would not fire. Finally after holding the throttle control lever in the open position the trimmer started. The line hit a leg on flower pot and died. Trouble restarting. When restarted, plulled the throttle lever to full throttle and the engine stalled. Let off the throttle and the engine ran better, but when got into higher weeds the engine bogged down, stalled and died.

New yard equipment that presents problems would be upsetting. It appears that you have checked the manual and followed instructions there. Since it is brand new, you might wish to consider taking it back in for a check since it is under warranty if the expert does not have a quick fix for this. I attached the repair link below.
