I know that it can be very frustrating to not have all of your equipment working properly. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found two links that will provide some information on the issue. The first will give you the instructions on how to replace the primer bulb. The second will give you the instructions on how to replace the fuel lines. That is in case the primer bulb is not the problem. I hope these links will help you.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the trimmer. If the primer is not filling with fuel when you pump it, I recommend checking the fuel line first. Move the fuel line to make sure it is not dry and brittle. Then check inside of the tank. The small fuel line should have the fuel filter attached to it. If the line is broken, it has to be replaced. The line can be ordered from our parts website:

Sears Parts Direct


Once you have the line click


to watch a video on how to replace the lines.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:
