Ok. Good job on doing what you could, right off! The simplest things are the most overlooked, and the most unforgiving.

So, you know your plug is wet, so you got some fuel flow.

Now let's figure out the plug no-fire problem. (This is under the assumption you haven't beat on this blower with a sledge-hammer at one point. The whole "key-way" is fried thing.)

1. Grab ahold of that plug THEN crank away. One time will tell you yes or no on spark. No, I am not joking, and yes, it is better than staring at the end of a plug and wondering if your eyes are bad.
In fact, better than a cup of coffee......in a bad way.

2. Check your kill switch. It is either: Grounding, or Open (open like it should be, UNTIL you push it, click it, or slide it, whatever you got). One CHEAP and fast way: Unhook the kill switch.
Then crank away. No spark? Not the kill switch then!

3. Check your spark plug GROUND. Let's say you got some shocking results from grabbing onto that bad boy. NOW check where the plug meets the cylinder head when she is screwed down in there. Believe it or not.....if it is funky, she won't ground right!
Hence, no worky.

4. You got no spark at all.....STILL. Let's look over your Spark Plug WIRE. Is she wore through? Is SHE grounding out? Has she heat failed? Then do #5.

5. STILL no spark. Let's check the last 2 things......
Rotor Magnets, and Magneto (ignition coil).
IF you have a volt/multi-meter, hook her up to the plug wire. No juice = Bad Magneto, or Bad Plug Wire. SOME juice = Good Magneto, but Bad Plug Wire (in some mowers/weedeaters, etc., remember that the Magneto is where the kill switch hooks too.
See if it is somehow grounding you out, by being loose but still touching the cylinder, etc.)

6. Failing Magneto. This can happen, and it does. You get SOME juice, just not ENOUGH juice. 2-Strokes make a lot of heat, even Magneto's give up the ghost after a while, sometimes. In this case, find a replacement!

Alright, remember that 2-Stroke motors are meant to do 2 things:
Break down, then Frustrate you.

So, here we go: (Electrical)

Rotor Magnets, Magneto (ignition coil), Spark Plug Wire, Spark Plug, Spark Plug Ground (Cylinder Head).

In that order!

Check your "fire" from the Magneto:

1. Check your Kill Switch. In other words, leave everything normal, and unhook it. Did she start? Kill Switch it is! Kill Switch/Wire comes from the Magneto (single wire/ground) to the Switch itself. So check that wire AT the Magneto (Is it loose and grounding out? Is the Kill Switch grounding you out where it is, because of crud, junk, or because it is touching the block when it is not supposed to?)

2. Check your Spark Plug Wire. Easy, unook it from the plug, stick your finger in, give it a crank (non-MultiMeter way). Did you get shocked? Then it ain't your Plug Wire and Magneto!

With a Multi-/Volt Meter, simply hook her up, and check for juice WHEN you pull the rope. If you got juice, it ain't your Plug Wire or Magneto!

Checking Spark the "normal" way: Grab the Plug with a pair of insulated pliers, hold the plug end against the cylinder head, and pull your rope. Any Spark? What color?

3. STILL no fire. It leaves: Magneto and Plug Wire.
Luckily, they are both in the same place! Tear your blower down, and check to see if the Magneto has slipped out of place (gap is WAY out), or if the Plug Wire has worn to the point it is grounding you out. While you are there, check your Kill Switch wire, to see if she is grounding you out then and there.

4. STILL no fire. That means: Magneto Failing, or Magneto JUNK.
Buy another one, replace it! (Or steal one from another junk Blower/Weedeater. These things are fairly standard, and easy!)
Or, Bad Plug Wire. Meaning she has failed out on you.
Wait......that means: Replace your Magneto! Lucky the things are built together right?

As long as it has fire, all you need to do is:
Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If this is o.k., then you will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush,
(http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. Make sure the small screen in carb. is free of debris.
If you still have trouble after this, then you will need to buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts.

SOURCE: replacing pull string on Poulan BVM200VS leaf blower

You will need to split the housing and remove the impeller wheel. In doing this you will have to disconnect the throttle cable and the switch assy. This can be a hand full if you have never done one.

In the future when you are purchasing a string trimmer or blower

or hedge trimmer, be sure that the starter can be removed by

removing 4 screws. This makes starter repair a 5 minute $10 job

instead of an hour $40 or more job. The problem is that you will

not find this in most home centers or box stores. You will have to

go to a full service dealer.

Pull off the muffler and you should see the piston and ring. Look for carbon buildup...poke the ring to see if it is stuck in it's groove...there should be a bit of spring in the ring. You might see carbon scoring. Stuck ring means low compression which means no start. Carbon buildup is due to too much oil in fuel mixture.

I can't get my Poulon leaf blower to start


So far everything looks good. You're getting fuel, and you're getting spark. Only problem, is you've gotten too much fuel in it, and need to get rid of some before you can proceed. Take that spark plug out, and pull the starting rope hard several times. This will force the largest amounts of fuel out. Now's the part where you'll have to trust me. Use a match or a lighter to "flash" the cylinder. Make sure you don't have excess fuel spilled over the blower, but hold that match or lighter right up to the spark plug hole, and it'll "puff" at you. Please don't look into the hole while you're doing this. Flash the cylinder, and then pull the rope again, and flash it again. Next, make sure the spark plug is dry then put it back in. Set your choke to full choke, and pull until it hits once. Then put the choke on half, and it should start within 3 pulls.

I have a Poulan gas blower that will not start. It is getting fuel, I have replaced the plug and coil. It looks like it has a weak spark, but does spark. Will not even fire with starting fluid.


Compression is zero, huh? Well the only thing that could cause that is the piston ring is stuck so that the right pressure never builds in the cylinder. These Poulan blowers are fairly easy to take apart, the hardest part is getting the plastic frame back together...lol! Keep me posted on your progress, parts are easy to get for these blowers. My suggestion to you is order a new piston ring and a gasket kit. Once you take it apart you will have to replace the gaskets and seals.

spray carb cleaner in the carb with throttle at full then hold the throttle wide open for three pulls, if it doeasn't start remove air cleaner and put a finger over the carb hole and have an assistant or yourself pull the cord this may clear out the debree blocking the flow of gas otherwise the carb must be removed cleaned and the vacuum diaphram replaced.

Poulan leaf blower won't start


I had spark and compression. It was definately a fuel delivery problem as the primer bulb was not filling with fuel. I tried taking off the carb spraying it with cleaner, blowing compressed air through the fuel lines and removing the fuel filter.

Finally I took the top of the carb off (the two screws holding the primer bulb on). I sprayed the ports with carb cleaner and used compressed air to blow through the fuel inlet and outlet.

When I put it back together, the bulb filled with fuel on the first prime, and the engine fired up on the first pull. The throttle response is also much snappier than it has ever been.

I'm not a mechanic, but it worked for me. Hopefully it will help someone else.
