The rebuild you did is correct, but did you clean the small ports in the carb.? I use a Den Tek Brush (used for cleaning teeth). They work great for this job. You may also want to check the small screen in the carb. The smallest of particles can cause this problem.

Blower only runs with full choke. When I switch to half choke, it dies and won't start.


it may simply need the high speed jet opening up a bit (2 screws near eachother on the carb and the high speed is furthest from the engine)
failing that it needs a carb kit.... this is a serviceable item changed regularly.

Trying to get my Poulan BVM 200 to start consistently. Need a service manual or help with the carb adjustment screws. Does anyone have a manual or a good description on how to do a carb adjustment?


These machines are typically at the bottom of the food chain when it comes to quality control and workmanship. Many are sold, but many turn to junk. You probably have the splined-head screws typical of a lot of these carbs..a Zama possibly. They have the carb adjusting tool for these for sale on Ebay. There are other home-made ways to loosen and adjust these screws too. Consistent starting probably won't be achieved till after you install a carb diaghram or rebuild kit and replace any old fuel lines and filter. Some of these engines run great and some are lemons.

Weed Eater Problems


If it runs with the choke closed then it's not getting enough gas. Check the gas filter on the end of the gas line in the gas tank. Remove the gas cap and using a piece of wire with a hook on the end, reach in the tank and pull the gas line out through the opening. Check the filter on the end of it. You could also have a burst-ed diaphragm in the carburetor. This sucks the gas from the tank to the carb. If that's the case a new weed eater may be in order unless you can find someone with the parts to repair it. Also check the gas lines for leaks or breaks, 2 of them.

POULAN FEATHERLITE LEAF BLOWER WILL ONLY RUN AT 1/2 CHOKE


Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor, or rebuild it. Could be some debris in the jets of the carburetor. If the blower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank and not run at full speed. Hint: When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position. That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out. Please rate me, Thanks Good Luck, I hope this helped

My Poulan featherlite weed eater will not run on no choke


yes you could have
anytime you have to run half choke or choke to get to run you have a lean condition and not enough fuel.
you could also have a stuck ring on the piston which is very common and this requires dismantleing engine to access,also scuffed piston and etched cylinder wall.
if you have a compression guage you can screw into the spark plug hole and hold throttle open and pull the rope 5 0r 6 times like your trying to start it your final reading should be 70 psi or above if its below 70psi you may have the above mentioned
also check the tightness of the 2 head bolts allen type or torx type sometime they loosen and the gasket between the cylinder head and crankcase blows out

just some things to check hope this helps some

Weed eater featherlite primer bulb won't fill with gas. it does not appear to be broken and fuel line is clear and filter is new. any ideas?


Hello

From your Description and Depending on the OEM (Zama or Walbro) of the Carburetor it Sounds like a Bad Fuel Filter or the Primer Check Valve has Stuck and the Carburetor Requires Soaking and Cleaning.
>>You can View a Breakdown/IPL of the Mower at this Site Addy, http://www.poulanpro.com/poulanpro/indexAction.do?id=default and Select Order Parts and Accessories. On this Page Select Illustrated Parts List from the Menu on the Left. Now Select the Manufacturer (Poulan/Weed Eater) and Enter the Model Numbers in the Boxes at the Lower Left of the Page.
I Require the OEM (Walbro, Zama, ect) and the Model Numbers Off the Carburetor. With these I can Locate a Breakdown of the Carburetor and Better Assist you.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

What is the gas/oil mixture ratio for the featherlite gas weedeater?


its a 40:1 ratio. remember to never tap the tap-n-go too hard or it will bend the shaft, and make the head hot to the touch, and eventually will melt the inside. And always keep fuel stabilizer in the gas, because if you dont, especially in winter and fall, it will clog the carb so you have to keep pumping the throttle to keep it running and you have to run it on half choke all the time


good luck!
