SOURCE: starter rope on bv2000 weed eater blower needs to be replaced.

Hi, Try the following, But make dure you can wind the spring. If not the spring is broken.
Kurt
This usually happens at the most inopportune time. You go out mow the lawn, pull the rope and it comes out in your hand. Here's how to fix it yourself.
First, we'll talk about a simple rope replacement. In most cases you will have to remove the blower housing from the engine to get to the underside of the rewind starter where the rope is. We'll assume at this point that the spring is ok and you can just wind it back up again. You can check the spring by turning on the hub in a counter-clockwise direction and see if the spring gains tension. Do not try to remove the spring from its holder or you may end up having to take the mower in for service.
1. Remove the rope from around the hub. Since there is no tension, it should come right out. If you are lucky and it broke near one end, you can probably just re-use it. If it is badly frayed or too short, you will need to find a replacement at a local hardware store.
2. Attach the handle or tie a knot in one end of the rope so it will not wind all the way into the hub. You also may want to burn the rope ends to keep them from fraying and causing a problem in the future. Set the rope aside where you can grab it once you wind up the spring.
3. Wind the hub in a counter-clockwise direction using your thumb to keep it from unwinding, until the spring is tight. Then let it come back slightly so the rope hole in the starter housing lines up with the rope hole in the hub.
4. Stick the rope through both holes while holding the hub from unwinding. This is tricky because you don't want the hub to unwind on you before you have the rope secured in it. A pair of needle nose pliers or a small screwdriver or pick may help get the rope through.
5. Tie a half hitch knot in the rope after you have it through both holes. While holding the rope, release your hold on the hub and let the rope slowly pull itself back into the starter.
6. Put the blower housing back on and your ready to start the engine & mow.

SOURCE: Can't get weed eater started. Have an older weed

This is a common problem on older Poulan models. Press the primer button 10 times and pull the starter rope twice, then pull the spark plug and examine it. If the plug is wet that means gas is definitely getting to the combustion chamber. Next thing is to use a compression tester. If you do not have a compression tester but have an AutoZone anywhere near you, you can get a loaner from them. Screw the compression tester into the plug hole and pull the start rope 4 times. If the tester reads anything below 90psi, you have a bad ring and will have to take the motor apart to clean the piston and ring or replace the ring.

Keep me posted on what you find, ok? I can walk you through the procedure to replace the ring if necessary. Good Luck!

SOURCE: My poulan gas weed eater won't start. It has gas.

You may want to take it down to access the muffler, remove it and check for carbon build up on the block where the piston is visible. My Poulan leaf blower quit working one day and refused to start, even with a new spark plug and fresh 40:1 mix ratio gas. I decided to take it down completely and discovered my exhaust port was nearly blocked all the way. I removed the carbon, regapped my spark plug to 0.025, and cleaned the magnets on the fly wheel and ignition module. Once put back together, it started up on the third pull and ran like new. Forgot to mention I took apart the carburetor completely and cleaned it.

Where can I obtain a replacement vacuum bag (in Calgary). The zipper on mine has broken making it unuseable.


Go to http://www.ereplacementparts.com/weed-eater-parts-c-17589.html Enter your model number. Then click one of the thumbnails that comes up until you find the replacement bag. My model number was 2595. I clicked on the thumbnail in the top row on the right and found the bag (part # 15). You can order direct from them and they ship right to you.
