I need part for a Craftsman Weedwacker

Where can I get a cap the holds the line spool on?It is the cap you snap back on over the line spool, the side clips broke off and the cap won't stay on, therefore it throws the line spool off. It was bought at Sears, but I can't find any info from Sears on it. Craftsman Weedwacker 12 in Electric Trimmer model no. 172.745440

Need parts for American Gardner Yardstick model YS24. Specificly the line head assembly.


How to make a spool cap cover for an American Gardener YS24 (Weedeater XLT24) Trimmer

If you've tried to buy parts lately for your trimmer, you've noticed they are harder and harder to find. In fact, I was unable to find a spool cap cover, so I came up with this work-around.

Before you start this project, it's important to save any parts from the old spool cover-especially the top, if you can. The top is needed to make a spacer for the new cover that will still allow you to "bump" out the string.

I used a Craftsman 71-64215 replacement spool retainer to make my new spool cover cap. It fits the Craftsman C3 19.2 volt 74381 String Trimmer (CRAC06540 spool cap). I found this cap at a local Ace Hardware, but apparently it is also getting hard to find-I googled the Ace Hardware number to find it on the web-"7314644 cap." I bought a couple extra from HardwareDistributors.com. Note that the diameter of the cover at the tabs is the same diameter of the old cover-although the diameter of the cap is slightly larger.

Take the old cover, and using the tab from the old cover, mark a line on the new tabs the same width as the old. Make sure you center the old tab on the new tab so you will remove the same amount of plastic from each side of the new tab. I used a dremel tool with the cutoff wheels to cut the tabs on the new cap to the same size as the old cap.

If you look at the new cap, there is a round plastic circle ridge on the bottom of the cap. If you look closely you can see a slight indention, or discoloration on the top of the new cap matching the circle on the bottom. You need to cut the plastic out of the new cap matching the plastic circle. I used a dremel tool with a metal cylindrical grinder to do that.

Once you get everything cut, put the old cap into the new cap so that the spokes face down toward the similar spokes on the top of the spool. You may have to trim the old cap so it fits into the new cap.

Finally, snap everything together into your trimmer-don't forget the spring. Note that the new cap has about a 1/8 inch gap above the spool. However, this doesn't seem to affect the trimmer-and you can still "bump" the head to eject the string.

Look for air leaks in the gas line and around the carb , a bad gas cap will not let any pressure build up. It could be that too. Check also the fuel line and filter inside the tank. replace if needed.
www.ereplacementparts.com has parts for craftsman or the online Sears Stores.

I have a craftsman weedwacker model 257 799750 and need to know if I am putting the spool on correctly. Is it the spring then the spool then the cap or the spool then the spring then the cap. when I put...


Spring, spool then cap....if that way doesn't let the line out correctly, then it is possible you have wound the line on the spool in the wrong direction. Try taking the line off and winding it on the other way.

The part number for this part from the manual is GGT4591U-41. They call it a 'winding spool decorate cover' - and yes, this trimmer is a piece of junk.

Have Craftsman gas weedwacker double line ran out.


take off knob that holds on the spool on bottom of weedwacker, remove spool, there are notches around the outside splines on the bottom of the spool. (the bottom is the end that fits up into the spool housing. there are 2 little holes opposite one another on the spool - one on each section. Cut two lengths of line about 6 feet long. stick line into first hole (near bottom of unit) wrap line around spool. once wrapped line gets short - to the point where you cant wrap it anymore - stick the end into one of the notches - do the same with the other line - insert spool back into housing - make sure spring is attached to the spool and lines come out of the holes in the housing - reinsert knob and tighten - make sure as you are doing this you unseat the ends of the lines off of the notches on the spool and they are out through the housing - tighten knob and you should be good to go

How do I spool new line onto this unit? It has a dual feed. Craftsman Weedwacker 17"/25cc


look on the bottom of the spool and see if there is an arrow point stamped on the outside of the spool, then check if there is an arrow point stamped on the inside of the spool. If so line up the two arrow points and cut two pieces of line about 3ft long. Insert one line into the hole where line comes out and push it until it comes out a little hole on the bottom of the spool. Pull some out and there will be a very little hole (the size of the line) beside the bigger hole insert the end of the line into the smaller hole and then pull it tight. Do the same for the other side. Then twist the spool (like you did to align the arrow points) stop when you have enough line out to reach the line cutter.
