Question about Poulan/Weed Eater No. Bvm200le 711482 24cc Gas Blower/Vac

1 Answer

Poulan 14" Chainsaw-Has no fire.

Is it possible that I could have burnt out the module ignition coil by using a fuel mixture of 50:1, when it requires 16:1 mixture?It ran for about 7-10 minutes, then stopped.

    I didn't think so but I had to ask. 16:1 to 32:1 is in the manual, depending on the oil used. And yes, it has been years. It's a Poulan 2000 AV. I've had it for about fifteen years or so. Do you have any other ideas? I know it's extremely rare that this particular part would go out.

No. That would have nothing to do with it. Too lean a mixture would have just seized the engine from lack of lubrication. That saw probably is meant to burn 40:1 anyway. 50:1 wouldn't hurt it in that length of time either. Where did you get 16:1 as the mixture? It's been years since anything was made that used that.

    Have you checked for spark by removing plug, so that it's easy to pull, and going directly to ground on the cylinder with the wire? A spark tester would be best for this or use a known good sparkplug and watch for spark to jump gap while holding it against the cylinder

My micro xxv has been idle for several years, now I 'd like to get it going again. Do I need to do more than fresh fuel?

Absolutely! Check to make sure that you are getting fire at the plug before moving on to my Tips. If you don't get spark at the plug, then you have a bad Ignition Coil (Module).
Here are a couple of my Tips that you will definitely need to check:

I have a 14" Woodshark Poulan chainsaw. I put in

Poulan Chainsaws are pretty well all powered by two stroke engines. My best guess is that you have the fuel mixture incorrect (it should be a 1:40 ratio of oil to gas). if the fuel mixture is not the problem then your choke is messed up. If you haven't tried already try and find the sweet spot in the choke where it will run.

Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18": how does this module work, what is the circutry ?"...

If you are speaking of the ignition module, the flywheel magnets induce a high voltage from an internal coil through a diode and into a capacitor and then the magnet position controls a transistor that discharges the capacitor into the ignition primary coil and that induces spark voltage into the ignition secondary coil which fires the plug. It requires several revolutions of the flywheel to charge the capacitor and why it takes several pulls of the starter to get the plug to fire regularly. That's a lot of action inside such a small package! Hope this helps!

All major manufacturers recommend 50:1;
1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil or
4 liters of premium fuel to 80 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
with the exception of McCulloch and Poulan 40:1 and Chinese chainsaws 25:1.

What is the fuel mixture for my new Poulan Pro 18'' chainsaw? It looks like 32:1 but not sure.Thanks! Don

If you use a mixture of 50:1 you can't go wrong.This is the industry standard and can be acheived by following the mixture guide lines one the bottle of oil.32:1 will make your saw smoke to the point of being almost unbearable and will foul the plug,so 50:1 is the mix your looking for.

I have an 18'' Poulan chain saw that won't start.

Take the wire of the spark plug,and see if it shocks you when the cord is pulled.If not there may be something wrong with your coil.(loose wire for example)If it does shock you,you may want to check out your piston rings,or the little air/fuel mixture valve between your carburetor,and cylinder.
