Question about Poulan Featherlite Gas Blower, with Low Emission Engine, 150 M

FL 1500 blower won't start

I have about 50 hours. Last time used the blower started to slow down on its own with full power set. Next time I tried to start (2 weeks later) would not start. Replaced spark plug (original was sparking ok), replaced air filter, checked fuel filter-not clogged. Used at least 2 times per week for 20-30 minutes--really liked blower, but $60/hour to repair-not worth it. What should I check--compression? Hard to find a good 2 cycle repair manual.

    I think I have the same problem. Can I just add more oil to the mixture and try again or is it too late...?

Home depot sells new lines and bulb

    Also. If lines and bulb are good. check carb intake for loose screws. Mine would not start and I checked everything, cleaned carb mult times and it was just the screws on the carb intake behind the carb that were loose. Once tightened, started right up.

I have the same problem with mine . The FL 1500 model is a older model and the lines that run from the tank to the carb could be brittle and cracked like mine . The only way mine will fire is to spray starting fluid in the carb . It will run for a short time and die like its not getting fuel and everything else checks out ok and im trying to find a new tank and lines for mine at this very moment . The lines had cracks in them everywhere and i believe you have to buy the lines and tank as a unit so if i can find one and get it working ill let you know .

Tim ; if the machine was slowing down while you were using it it sounds like the fuel mixture was too lean ( not enough oil ) you need to check the compression with a compression guage . a 2cycle needs a min of 90 lbs to run , usually you should have 125 lbs check and get back to me

    to AZJANOS , you will need to check your compression also - if it is at least 90 lbs use a little more oil in your mixture -

After a couple of hours of use last week, the motor started slowing down. Turned it off and it would not restart. tried again after an hour and it started but sounded really rough. stopped it and took it...


sounds like the motor is worn out. Toro does not sell the motor separate. It is considered a throw away unit.
You will have to purchase a new one.
Sorry.
Good Day.

It is definitely with the compressor. It should more like you may have a weak winding in the compressor, you can a hard start capacitor (sp5 ) that will help the compressor on restart. Note that this is a last chance solution for a compressor.
