Check your kill switch and wires going to coil.

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!

I want to know how you are testing for spark. Are you using an inline spark tester? If not, go to the local auto supply house and buy an inline spark tester. It should be less than $10 (US).

If the ignition module is good, and the spark plug is good, and the kill wire is disconnected, and you are using an inline spark tester, then the only unknown component is the flywheel. The flywheel has the magnet that fires the ignition module.

Remember, that spark, fuel & air are not the only things required to make an engine run. You must also have compression and timing. If the cylinder is not building 100+ psi compression, or if the flywheel has slipped on the crankshaft, then the engine won't "fire up" and run. You can visually inspect the cylinder for scratches by looking in through the exhaust port, just remove the muffler and look in with a flashlight. The walls of the piston and cylinder should be very smooth and slightly dark.

Good luck!

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

Will not start, replaced fuel lines (1 was broken) and spark plug


does it even run at all for a short bit? If not pull the spark plug from the unit, place some part of the spark plug threads on the metal surround the spark plug hole in the engine, turn the unti manually with the pull cord/starter and see if you get spark, if no spark it could be the Ign. coil module, a bad spark plug wire, or a break in the wiring to the ign. coil module.

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.

Was running fine and just quit..checked it and found no spark


Assuming the spark plug is good, it is probably the ignition module.
