Plugged fuel line or carb due to sitting with fuel in tank. Drain tank and back flush line, changing filter if there is one. Inject some compressed air into fuel line from carb.jet screw hole, thus blowing out line toward tank. May have to also use some carb.cleaner in same area.
Prevention: Always shut off fuel line and run carb dry before storing unit. If storing a long time, remove all fuel as gasoline will not keep long, esp. in the carb.
Best wishes!

I have a Poulan Pro 295 20 " chain saw that wont start.No spark from plug.Think the magneto is bad. Model no.952-051310 . Need opinion and part no. Thanks.


Do a basic test first, remove the top cover, pull the earth cut out wire from the terminal on the ignition unit ( this will iliminate any problems with the switch, or wires ) now try for a spark, remember that they work off speed of rotation so give it a good pull, make sure you use a good clean plug, well earthed against the cylinder. If there is still no spark, you will need to replace the unit, part no. 530039143

Poulan pro blower wont crank after using normal method in manual to start. 2 years old and never any problem before. replaced spark plug and no luck. primer bulb appears to be sucking gas from the tank,...


Maybe time for somek maintenance. Pull the carb and take the cover off the end without the hole in the cover. Careful with the gaseket and diaghram (which may also need replacing). Look under the diaghram for a small hole about 1/4" diameter. There will be a very fine mesh screen in there. Make sure it is clean and spray the holes you see with a non-flammable brake cleaner. Most carb cleaners and such are TOO harsh and do more harm than good with these carbs. Look around because that area is where fuel goes to the other side of the carb to be metered and sent to the engine.

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.

Poulan weedeater bv200 wont start//new spark plug


Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

Youwill need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to seedaylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

Lawnmower wont start


Are you getting spark first of all. If you are getting spark do you have good gas? If you have good gas most likely your carb needs some attention maybe you had some old gas sitting in there and something inside is gummed up it might need cleaning.

Poulan saw wont start has spark and fuel


Look for a pinched/bare stop-switch wire (I assume that you don't have spark now). Also, check the ignition coil core gap to the flywheel magnets (I use card stock to set the gap). Make sure the plug wire was not damaged again.

I have an 18'' Poulan chain saw that won't start.


Take the wire of the spark plug,and see if it shocks you when the cord is pulled.If not there may be something wrong with your coil.(loose wire for example)If it does shock you,you may want to check out your piston rings,or the little air/fuel mixture valve between your carburetor,and cylinder.
