Purchased a Poulan 550 Pro push mower about 5 months ago. Now having problems idling, revs up and down (but not off) in 3-4 second cycle. Still cuts grass but guzzles gas. Any solutions?

Check air filter, replace if needed.
Check engine oil level and condition. Add/change as needed.
Check spark plug. Clean and re-gap if needed (.030 gap)
Drain the fuel and replace with fresh premium grade gasoline. If your local station has a notice on the pump regarding Ethanol content, drive to another station!

Most owner's manuals specify 89 octane or higher and most warranties become void if E85 fuel is used.

And finally, Oxygenated fuels are not your mower's best friend. :-)

Hope this helps.

Crank seals could be leaking air in,or carb settings incorrect.screw both mixture screws right in,then out 1.5 turns..set low mixture screw for highest idle,you may need to unscrew the idle screw a bit to keep revs down.adjust H mixture screw at full revs,to get max revs,then unscrew 1/4 turn.may need to reset idle

Hi, remove the bowl off the bottom of the carby and clean it out. My best guess at this stage is that you have water in the bowl. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Poulan 550 Series push mower won't pull start


Hmmmm,,and the plot thickens. Without seeing the unit, i would have to think that when you pull the engine control cable bar, its not releasing the brake that sits against the flywheel. These cables do stretch. Pull the engine cover and you will see the brake against the flywheel. Pull the engine control handle and watch and see if brake is releasing. If its not, replace the cable.
That would be my bet. I hope this is of some help.
