Question about Poulan/Weed Eater #Wt200 711724 24cc Gas Blower/Vac

Open Question

My Poulan Prolink PPB150e will not run. I can get it started by soaking the air filter in the gas/oil mix but it will not run long. When I throttle up it seems to smother (for lack of a better word) the carb and it loses power and dies.

Tip

Trimmer will only run for a few secs then dies out


First, use the same oil and mix it the same from batch to batch, once you have made a batch (gallon or what ever, never add gas or oil to make more, use up the batch to the last drop, then make a new gallon). Be sure the air filter is clean, some are weted with oil to catch more dirt and provide a bit of extra suction, clean and spray it with a spray cookingoil or soak it in oil fuel mix. Next: Look for 3 adjustment screws on the carb. should be three total. 1 screw is for idle adjustment. the other 2 should be close to each other, one is low speed fuel/air mix and the other is high fuel/air mix. Adjust the low fuel/air mix screw until it will idle un-added with the throttle then adjust the idle on the throttle to get a good idle speed. Next adjust the High fuel/air mix until it gets the RPM's you want it to have. It should go from idle to high speed with out hesitation or cough. It should also run with power to cut any weeds or limbs with out bogging out.

I have a Poulan Prolink 150E weedeater. One day I was running it and it just stopped. I've changed the plug, thinking that was it, it wasn't. It's getting gas but not fire. Do you have any


If fuel is present and spark is good then it's air. Remove air filter and see if it starts. If so, it's time for a new one.

and I quote once more from the manual "Helpful Tip. To obtain
correct oil mix ration, pour 3.2 ounces of 2 cycle synthetic oil into one gallon of fresh gas."

Hope that helps,
If you like I can send the manual via email if you need it.

I can't get it started


Check 1. Compression 2. Gas/oil mix 3. Air filter 4. Spark at spark plug. This is just the beginning of troubleshooting a 2 stroke. They develop fuel line problems and carburetor problems and magneto air-gap problems. Critical though is the oil/gas fuel mix that is used. It needs to be fresh and mixed at the correct ratio. Check all these things that you can and post back.

Engine suddenly quit and will not restart or fire.


Hello. Begin by changing your air filter. If the air filter is dirty or has too much oil in it the trimmer will not start. Next, change the spark plug. Then check the fuel filter inside of the tank to be sure it is not clogged.

Finally, I do have a customer now and then who accidentally puts in the wrong fuel [for instance straight gas instead of the gas and oil mix required]. If this is a possibility, drain the tank and start over with a fresh gallon of gas and a fresh 2 cycle oil mix. Joe

Lawnmower starts and dies... where is the main jet for the carb?


try cleaning the air filter, then a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline. most lawnmowers have no mixture adjustments, so it is a matter of cleaning the carb, tank, gas lines. Some oils in gas mix systems settle and clog after less than one season.

I have a p-3416 poulan saw it is getting spark but the saw still wont start


It's not getting gas. Possible wrong mix oil to gas, but not real likely. Possible sat over the last winter with gas in it and varnished. I'm guessing this is the one, more likely than not. take cover and filter off and clean and bag 'em. pour carb cleaner in the carb and soak overnight. Dump out (carb cleaner and old gas)into a sealable jar or can and fill with straight gas and soak an hour and dump into trash gas/carb cleaner. Use a bicycle pump to blow air into carb to dry it. At most use a computer air can. Then start with the right gas/oil mix, prime it, set the trigger and choke and drop start. (It helps to have the spark plug out during the soak. Then clean it and sandpaper the gap and the magneto area on the flywheel).

Was working fine, then started to work at half force then just quit. Good fuel supply.


Try checking the fuel filter and try the air cleaner, if this is a mixed gas rig you may have the gas mix wrong. Pull out the spark plug and look to see if it's wet. if it's wet you have to much oil, if it's a 4 stroke you have a air problem, after cleaning out the air cleaner and drying the plug ans lightly sand the tip of the spark plug and wash off, try starting it, if it starts and runs your good to go, be sure the governor control arm has not fallen off the governor control arm. If you need more help just post a reply back.
