The carb probably needs to be rebuilt. There is a very fine screen in the carb that gets clogged up. When it is clogged it actually looks more like a metal plug than a screen. Even with a filter in the fuel tank dirt will make its way to clog this screen.

Poulon pro bvm210vs will not start

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 have a pw 80 start fine then begins to splutter when riding through the gears it dies then starts up again

Try disassembling and cleaning the carburetor. Inspect the in take manifold gasket for leaks, rips, tears, separation, etc. and inspect the reeds for possible damage. Change the spark plug and the spark plug cap. You can purchase an NGK spark plug cap for about $5, if the resister goes bad you can get an intermittent spark. Lastly, replace the fuel in the tank just in case it is old or a bad batch of gas, so it does not cause the problem to resurface.

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.

My Blower dies after about 15 min. Then it will

I think its the ignition module. To test the module put 2 spark testers inline with each other and see if it will jump both.
If you dont have 2 testers then use it till it dies and try to start immediately with a prime. If it wont start then module is suspect.
Most manufacturers have lifetime warranty on thier modules ( I am unsure about MTD) so double check before you just go out and buy one.

Crafsman gas blower: fuel lines to primer bulb had to be reconnected; now blower won't fire at all. Replaced plug and made sure it sparked; still nothing when I try to start.


Priming the engine(put some gas in the sparkplug hole ,after you have checked the sparkplug,the colour of the spark has to be violet).Start the engine.If it starts there is a carburation problem,change the fuel lines to primer bulb.

wish you good luck savumihai71
