Poulan PBV200 LE

Blower starts with new plug and cleaned air filter. Loses power after starting.

    What else is new I've had three The first was free and used but given to me.

    It worked quite well better than most in my opinion.



    So I bought a brand new one that broke after two days of using it. I might add that I used Poulan brand 2cycle oil mixed according to their directions.



    Two days later it burned up.... Seized the piston! no less. Home depot replaced it right away no questions asked.



    So by now the new one has about 10 hours on it and it is starting to have the same type problems. Oil running out the side by the carburator. Lack of power, etc. Remember still using their oil mixture according to their directions! It does not come up to full speed and yes the spark plug is brand new.



    I'm a licensed Aircraft mechanic and can't keep a leaf blower running more than ten hours... Hmmmm perhaps you should take the train.



    My opinion is starting to lean toward thinking Poulans leaf blower is a piece of ****.

Probably a low compression problem.

My 2 yr. old Poulan Pro BVM200FE blower won't start. It will turn over a few times after 3-4 pulls then nothing.


replace the spark plug, make sure the air filter is clean, make sure it has fresh fuel. if it still wont start. give a shot of carburetor cleaner straight in the carburetor it should start and run for a few seconds. if it does. the carburetor needs to be cleaned. hope this fixes your problem, good luck

Howdy I'm unable to keep my Poulan Pro PBV200 leaf blower running unless I keep the choke three quarters of the way closed. Gas and oil mix is new and changed spark plug. Could the exhaust be blocke


Yes, There is a spark arrestor screen on muffler. It could also be a carburetor that needs rebuilding or a simple fuel mixture adjustment.

Gas blower engine surges and shuts off when engine gets hot


check your fuel lines for cracks, could be sucking air or could be your carb needs cleaning, make sure you clean the screen inside the carb, if you run it with the choke on partially does it smooth out and quit surging, if so it is definitely a fuel problem. Hope I helped you. 2StrokeJim

Is getting air in gas line, will not start


If the hoses are connected right and they are in good condition, it could be bad gas,sparkplug or carburetor needs cleaned and/or a rebuild kit. Check the link below for parts:

Put new spark plug in new gas clean filter followed starting directions want start


The fuel system may need tending to. It may need new fuel lines, a cleaned fuel filter and the carburetor cleaned and adjusted. If this is an older unit, (even a couple years old) it may require some new internal carburetor parts as well. I don't like being the bearer of bad news, but this isn't always an easy fix. Your specific problem has to be diagnosed and by process of elimination, the problem resolved.

My Poulan Pro 200 model #200pbv200le will not start.Replaced the carb, fuel, fuel filter,plug. When I pull the cord sometimes I see a spark, sometimes- most of the time I don't see a spark.Replaced fuel


Check your compression...if it reads anything less than 100psi you need to tear it down and replace the piston ring. Looking for the spark is unreliable, get an in-line spark checker and check for spark. Loss of compression due to a stuck piston ring is very common in the pbv200 series.
