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!

YOU have told me to reattach the pull cord 3 different times.


Laying the spark plug against the cylinder head is not an ideal way to check for spark. The best way is with a tool designed specifically to check for spark available at most auto parts stores. Remove the spark plug from the engine. One end of the tool plugs into the plug wire the other end is a clamp and gets clipped to cooling fins or another good ground on the motor. Pull the cord and you will be able to see and hear the spark.

I can not get my craftsman leaf blower to start. I put a new spark plug and fresh gas. Won't start.


Not to sure without seeing or hearing it being pulled over. Compression? Very likely needs some carb work/kit.

Poulan blower was running - ran out of gas - put gas in - won't start- primed - won't start - let sit - won't start-took cover off - sprayed starter fluid in carb - won't start- -(very little stutter)...


Hello
Does it use a fuel and oil mixture?You probably did that.

Try removing the spark plug and cleaning it with a wire brush or some emery cloth.Make sure you have spark by connecting the plug wire and resting the plug on the metal motor block.

Do not hold the plug in your hand ,if you have no spark you may have a bad magneto.

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 pro leaf blower doesn't start


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.
