First let me say I don't know of an aftermarket coil made for this blower.

Disconnect the kill terminal of coil and see if it is generating a spark. There could be a short the wiring if it is now generating a spark. Also make sure coil has a good electrical ground to the cylinder. If coil is not generating a spark with kill wire off and the coil to cylinder ground is good then coil is most likely bad.

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!

Should be two fuel lines coming from fuel tank grommet. One feeds the carb's primer plate and the other returns from the same. Open the fuel tank and observe while pressing the primer. If you see fuel pumped INTO the tank while pushing the primer and pulled FROM the tank when the primer is released, you're OK. If not, the lines are backward. Filtered line is on SUCTION side of primer bulb. Unfiltered line is on PRESSURE side of primer and is simply a return to the tank.
Next, concerning the coil: Air gap should be .010 inch at the magnet. Echo ignition coils are warrantied for life to the original purchaser, so don't tamper too much with it. Check gap and check fire with a spark tester. If no spark with switch in on position, take it to an AUTHORIZED SERVICING dealer, found here.

Hope this helps,
Dolf-

SOURCE: I can't get my Poulon leaf blower to start

So far everything looks good. You're getting fuel, and you're getting spark. Only problem, is you've gotten too much fuel in it, and need to get rid of some before you can proceed. Take that spark plug out, and pull the starting rope hard several times. This will force the largest amounts of fuel out. Now's the part where you'll have to trust me. Use a match or a lighter to "flash" the cylinder. Make sure you don't have excess fuel spilled over the blower, but hold that match or lighter right up to the spark plug hole, and it'll "puff" at you. Please don't look into the hole while you're doing this. Flash the cylinder, and then pull the rope again, and flash it again. Next, make sure the spark plug is dry then put it back in. Set your choke to full choke, and pull until it hits once. Then put the choke on half, and it should start within 3 pulls.

How do I fix my Poulan Pro bvm200fe?


If you do indeed have (good)fuel and spark to cylinder, I suggest you remove muffler and clean the internal screen/mesh and carefully scrape off carbon around exhaust port. Do not let debris fall inside engine when cleaning.

replace the spark plug, make sure the air filter is clean, make sure it has fresh fuel. if it still wont start. give a shot of carburetor cleaner straight in the carburetor it should start and run for a few seconds. if it does. the carburetor needs to be cleaned. hope this fixes your problem, good luck

What is the compression on a poulan bvm200FE blower


It has lost compression, I just repaired two that were doing the same thing, Installed a new piston ring in both and they fired up and ran great on the second pull. Also check to be sure the bolts haven't backed out that hold the cylinder jug on to the block, this will cause it to lose compression and not start or run either. A new ring costs $2.00 and can be installed in less than an hour.

I have a weed eater blower bv1085, It just stopped. I have changed the fuel filter, air filter and plug but it still will not start any suggestions


Put a spark tester on it see if you have spark,if not.its your coil,would probably be cheaper to buy blower at yard sale than buy a coil. If tou do have spark order a rebuild kit for your carb.When you take the carb off and clean it,look real close,there will be a number on the carb,you need that number to order the right kit,all carbs on weedeater brand equip. are like that.
