Poulan wt200 "wildthing" gas leaf blower

Has been running fine for a year and a half then all of a sudden, it won't start. Checked and replaced plug, checked choke operation, checked mufffler to make sure it wasn't plugged up, put starter fluid in chamber and fired but only ran for a couple of seconds like it was on full choke then died.

What else can I check to get this thing started? It was only idle 2 weeks between uses when it started this problem

    same problem ..was running fine then wont start

    did a compression check and only has 60 lb...I was told by small engine mechanic it needs at least 90 to run.

    he also told me it was cheaper to buy a new one than to buy parts to try and fix it

    I had the same problem with my leaf blower. I found the head screws backed out from block. In other words, the head was loose. I put lock-tite on the threads and reattached the head. It is working fine now...

Chaged gas and spark plug. Get no combustion

Make sure your getting a spark at the plug. Not much to these machines but verify good spark before anything else.

Was running fine and just quit..checked it and found no spark

Assuming the spark plug is good, it is probably the ignition module.
