Question about Poulan Garden

2 Answers

I have a Poulan BVM200VS gas blower. The plug won't fire. It has a new spark plug and a new ignition module. The kill switch is good. What little wiring there is seems to be good. If you spin the flywheel with a drill motor, the plug will fire, but at speeds such as with the starter rope, it will not fire.

I have a craftman leaf blower that will not spark the plug, using a test light without the plug and just grounding the end to the housing.The light will blink real bright turning the flywheel. But when i connect the test light to the plug and ground it to the housing. The test light will not blink. All wires are disconnected from ignition module. Is my ignition module bad ?,and then why does the light blink when i ground test light. For test light to blink seems module should be good. I re-tried to set gap several times with same results ...set gap with a index card i have also use a aluminum can in the past.

It is possible that the gap between the module and the flywheel is not correct. This gap is usually set with some thin card stock or possibly a playing card.

It is important that this gap is not too large.

Poulan Pro blower BVM200vs won't start. No spark, changed coil, now I have spark, gas flow good. Tried grounding kill switch to engine & tried removing switch. Do magnets need 2 B indexed to shaft?


The flywheel should have a woodruff key on it, which fits in the groove on the crank shaft. This means the timing is pre set. When setting the timing gap, use a business card between the magnet on the flywheel and the ignition module, tighten them in that position and remove the card.

Is fuel getting into the cylinder and actually wetting the plug.?
Do you have good compression?

New blower will not fire


Check for spark at the plug by using a simple spark checker tool. Got to have both or it won't start.

Poulan BVM200 LE leal blower it about 4 years old and has no spark. It work well last fall. Must the ignition module be replaced. Thanks, Rick


hi rick

if the plug is ok and kill switch and wire have been isolated from the ignition unit

and the earth is good for the armature legs on the coil - then yes the ignition module must be replaced and the air gap set to 0.010 "

a fair bit of work involved in replacing coil in one of these units !!!

ps make sure compression and muffler are ok and have a look up the ex port and check rings / piston and bore for any damage before parting with any cash for new coil

and dont be tempted to use stale fuel mix in your blower it can cause a lubrication fault
resulting i damage to piston / rings etc

It only runs for about 5 minutes at a time.


The ignition module is going bad. Cost of replacing part is more costly than buying a new blower.
Good Day.

Blower will not start, will not fire


Doubtful. Clean the bolts and re-mount but I doubt that'll fix your problem. Check spark with an in-line spark checker. Be sure you have the right oil/gas mix...or you will burn it up. How did you check compression, what is the reading? Anything less than 100 means the piston ring is stuck.

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?
