1) carburetor gaskets/diaphragms may need to be replaced
2) ignition coil may be breaking down when hot
3) check compression when cold, then after it stops, when hot
4) could have a vacuum/pressure leak
*I would investigate carb first

Are you sure you have the right length rope??? If you are sure the rope length is correct you may have wound the recoil spring too tight causing it to run out of travel. You want the recoil spring just tight enough to pull the rope all the way in.

The pulley the rope goes onto needs to be fully wound against the spring. I usually wind the pulley and hold it with one hand while feeding in the new rope with the other. The pulley may have a cut out on it where you can hook the rope and then wind the pulley. Once the pulley is fully wound by the spring you can hold the end of the extended rope/grip and let it slowly wind back into the recoil assembly.

SOURCE: TB4BP won't pull
crankcase could be full of fuel causing it to hydro lock take plug out and see if it will pull over be carefull though if it's hydro locked with fuel it will pump out of the sparkplug hole. the rope may be off of the starting pully as well

New or used unit? If new can you return it ? If not you will need to take the recoil assembly off the engine and rewind the spring. Check inside the recoil assembly to see if the spring is broken or just popped out of place on either end. If it is broken your done. You will need to find a Poulan dealer to get a new spring. If new take it to a Poulan dealer for warrenty replacement. If you want to try to rewind the spring look to see where one end of the spring fits into the housing and the other into the spool. On the edge of the puley should be a notch. Place the rope in the notch and turn the pulley it in the direction needed to wind the spring about 4 or 5 turns. If it now pulls all the rope in you are done.If not put the rope back in the notch and wind the spring tighter till the rope is all pulled in.
