Re: repalce cord on gas blower
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT SIZE CHORD FOR THAT STYLE,MUCH SMALLER THAN MOWER STYLE. ALSO PROBABLY HAVE IMPROPER TRACKING OF ROPE. TRY PULLING COVER BACK OFF AND MAYBE KNOT GETTING CAUGHT UP IN FLYWHEEL FROM ROPE

Does it seem to be the cord holding the unit? Try to turn the blower in reverse. Disconnect the spark plug and use a screw driver to reverse the blower., If the starter pawls engaged for some reason and jammed the engine, this should free them. If not, there could be problems inside the engine.
I would dump the old gas and put new gas in and see if it will start then. If not you can remove the carb and if you are careful disassemble it without damaging the gaskets spray it with carb cleaner and reassemble it and put it back on. You can also rebuild the carb if the second option doesn't work. Hope this helps.
This is back to basics, does it have a good spark when the engine is rotated with the plug out? if no replace the plug and try again if yes, does the plug get wet with fuel?if no replace the filter in the tank and try again, if yes is the plug soaked with fuel? if yes check the fuel inlet needle in the carb which maybe causing flooding, if no, is the spark occuring in the correct place, to check this remove the flywheel and check the key has not sheared, if the key is ok, it may be an air leak through a gasket or crank seal.
I had the same problem. I opened up the blower by removing all the Allen screws, 4 mm wrench. Then pull the motor, need a Torx T-25wrench. You then need to wind up the recoil which is part of the case on the motor side. Wind it up all the way and then put a screw in the slot that is in the recoil. Thread the cord through the tube through the triangular hole in the white disc. Type a big not that won't slip through the hole. Pull the screw that is holding against the spring. Remount the motor, wiggling it until it slips into place. Make sure it ratchets. Reassemble and you shold be good to go. Only took me 3 attempts to get it right.
Remove the side coverto get to reel Remove any broken cord. Turn reecounter clockwise till it nestops then slowly let turn back till the hole li nes up then use a c clamp to hold the reel. Feed the cord through hole about 3 to 4 inches and tie a double knot in cord. Release c clamp very slowly to take up cord. Measure old cord if possible and subtract about 1 half inch cut it and thread it through the handle. replace the side cover.
This should help you out. Go to Poulon's website. Look for a tab to "order parts". Model is fl1500. That will take you to a page that you can look at the blower "chassis" to order parts. That shows you how the bottom housing goes together. You have to take off the bottom housing, the blower fan, the top housing. That should take you to the starter cord mechanism.
it's doubtful that bad gas caused this, it sounds like the cord was back-lashed and partially came off the recoil pulley. Remove the recoil cover and ensure the cord is all on the pulley, make sure the rewind mechanism works smoothly before re-installing.

Blower Unit Components Replacement
Note these items when overhauling the blower unit:
The recirculation control motor, the power transistor ), the blower motor (C), and the dust and pollen filters (D) can be replaced without removing the blower unit.
Before reassembly, make sure that the recirculation control linkage and doors move smoothly.
After reassembly, make sure the recirculation control motor runs smoothly.
