    You have compression lock. Remove the sparkplug(s) or simply wait a few hours, and the pistons will seep pressure on their own.

Release the high pressure in the hose by triggering the wand as you try to restart the engine.

I'll guess and say that the carb flooded the engine and you have hydro lock.Pull the sparkie and clear the extra fuel.
The carb is at fault,IMO.
if the needle get a little dirt in there it will hold the float open and flood the motor.
Dirt.

Chain saw chain stopped moving


Was it running and shut down and was froze or when you went to restart it was frozen? Two things I have seen cause this other than a seized engine. One - chain bound up. Remove side cover and inspect chain mechanism. Two- the pull cord is bound up. Remove the pull cord cover and inspect.

Motor seems to be locked up!!!!!!!!


It may be your engine, but it may also be the water pressure. Try this: Hold the trigger down while pulling the recoil starter. This acts as an unloader for the pressure washer, and may allow the engine to turn over. There is also an oil level in the pump as well as the engine. Check both levels.
Just a thought, but I've been there. Best regards, W/D

Poulan 16" cannot start...pull cord locked up


Remove the cover, should be 4 screws that holds it on once the 4 screws are loosened the rope could rewind on its own. If not check to make sure the spring is not broken.
