SOURCE: Poulan ride on lawn mower will not run by itself--if you pour gas into the intake it will run until the sm amt runs out

It could be your fuel shutoff solenoid is not working or is stuck from gum, varnish or rust in your carb bowl. The fuel shutoff solenoid is located on the bottom of your carburetor. To check it, have someone, or yourself if you can reach the ignition switch, turn the key to the on position and back off several times while you listen by the carb. You should hear a click each time. If not, the carb will have to be taken off and cleaned and checked. You will probably find water and/or rust in your bowl plugging up the main jet. Best to take it to a shop.

SOURCE: LT 1000 flooding gas out muffler and stalls, then pours in carb.

Check your oil. Does it smell like gas? If so, don't run it even if you could. You will fry your engine. The float needle and seat in the carb are leaking. In other words, the float needle is not shutting off the gas when the bowl is full. You need to have them replaced.

SOURCE: riding lawn mower keeps flooding

It sounds like the inlet needle seat is not closing all the way,allowing fuel to overfill the carburetor.The inlet needle seat may have dirt in it.You will have to remove the carburetor bowl and check for dirt or debris in bowl,if so remove the float assembly and check for a peice of dirt between the inlet needle and seat.If there is none you may have to replace the carburetor or rebuild it with a carburetor kit.You should also chang the engine oil because the overfilled carburetor drains to the crankcase,filling it with fuel,check the oil level and see if it is high,that would indicate fuel is in the oil.Hope this helps

After been in storage for two years I've tried using my Poulan, I clean the floater area making sure not old fuel is there, but still is not running unless I put gas directly into the carb and it does it...


The carbs on small engines have numerous jets which clog very easily. If you are able, remove the carb and soak it in a carburetor cleaning solvent......make sure to remove the gaskets or purchase a gasket kit before you soak. Remove the carb from the cleaner and let it dry. Reinstall.
You may want to check the fuel lines and primer bulb while you are at it. Good luck and I hope this helps.

Lawn mower starts and runs until I start pushing it, then it just dies out.


Sounds like the carburetor is gummed up. Short of taking the carb off and cleaning, some good fuel line/carburetor cleaner such as Gumout (available at any place that sells auto oil/filters, etc. Wal-mart, K-Mart, Autozone). Put a bit of fresh fuel in the gas tank and add about 2 or 3 Tablespoons of fuel line cleaner. Start mower and let it run a bit. May run rough, but should clean the carb out unless plugged bad. If this doesn't work, the carb will need to come off and be cleaned. Can be done by the homeowner, but if you are nervous about tackling this job it may be best left to the mower shop.

Starts then dies unless you keep pushing the red bulb


You will have to remove the fuel bowl from bottom of carburetor and clean the varnish out of the carburetor.Take note that the screw on the bottom of the carburetor is a fuel metering jet,there are small passages in it that may need to be cleaned out with a small wire,be careful not to enlarge the holes in it,they are important for fuel metering correctly.You may have to soak it in carb cleaner. Be sure to use good carb cleaner. The brand name Berkebile 2+2 is the best followed by Gumout.

Carburetor adjustment


it would be a lot easier if you take the cover off the top of lawn mower.
find the carb, it usually sits near gas tank, there should be a screw sticking out of it. tighten until it runs normal. also adjust the air intake/ throttle arm on carb

Poulan pro lamn tractor will not start


Carb is most likely clogged from when the gas you had in it before gummed up. Take some carb cleaner and clean the heck out of the carb and everything will work just fine after that. I also recommend letting the carb cleaner sit for about 30 minutes before trying to start the machine
