Question about Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"
I got a poulan pro 295 46cc engine thats getting spark to the plug but it won't start. I have tried everything i can think of except the on and off switch.
If the engine is getting spark and you have tried starting fluid sprayed into carburator then it is not the switch as all the switch does is ground out the primary to kill the spark. It is now either the compression(lack their of) or the timing (Sheared flywheel key, for example)

Does the spark plug get wet with fuel when pulled through? If dry, try spraying a little starting fluid in the plug hole and reinstall the plug. If it pops at least once, you have fuel delivery problems--look for hardened/ cracked fuel lines. Clean the muffler arrestor screen. When the muffler is off, check the condition of the piston skirt and cylinder wall for deep scoring or obvious wear. Make sure the primer button (if equipped) is filling with fuel when pumped a few times. If it doesn't, make sure the bulb is not hard or cracked and check the lines going to and from it. Check the carburetor bolts and nuts for tightness. The fuel filter in the tank could be plugged, fish it out and check. If you have checked all these items, it may be time to clean and rekit the carburetor. Hope this helps!
