Poulan Pro 36cc won't start

Replaced spark plug and plug wire assembly. Still won't start. If I take the plug out and pull the crank I see no spark.

    same problem here sorta . The saw stopped running and then would never restart and I noticed that sometimes I could get a little electicity through the plugwire but usually none at all. So,
    I waited 10 days for the local supply place to deliver me the ignition module
    and it isnt quite the same as the old one but it seems to fit well , but I coudnt get any spark at all through it .
    so I retried the old one and I'm getting a little spark but apparently not enuff to start it .
    I just bought the saw 6 months ago at lowes and have barely used it .
    I dont know what to do . I'm so sick of giving places like lowes my money for their junk cuz they are useless after the sale . I sincerely hope that they manage to go bankrupt soon .

Spark should jump at least 1/8 inch gap.You would need the correct coil for the application spaced at 10 to 12 thousands inch.
You might unplug shutoff wire and try,it might be shorted a lttle causing weak spark.

I have a poulan pp3816 pro 38cc that leaks gas out the muffler


Its either well flooded, or the carb needle is leaking, remove the spark plug, with the ignition switch off crank the engine to evacuate any fuel left in the cylinder, leave the machine for a couple of hours, re fit the plug and try to start useing no choke, if it still does not start, remove the spark plug again, rest it on top of the cylinder ( away from the spark plug hole ) crank the engine and check for a spark, if it has a good spark and the plug is soaked with fuel it could be a carb needle leaking, remove the carb, remove the metering cover held with four screws, replace the rubber tipped needle.

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

New saw - will not start. Have put in premium gas/oil mix. Getting spark from plug when cord pulled. Hasn't even fired once.


It's possible the brake is on. Try pushing the brake forward then pulling it back until you hear it click. Then try cranking it again.

No spark on poulan 2055


1st try another good plug, if no spark, remove the pull start and you will see 2 small wires and 1 thick one going to the plug, disconect the one that has a spade conector on it (the other small one should be screwed down on to the coil) refit the starter and check for spark. if none replace the ignition coil/ module as one part.

No spark from spark plug


New Saw? Warranty time
Electronic ignition? Replace entire module. Pinched wire to metal case part for ignition switch. Permanently shorted ignition switch--replace.

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start


Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.
