Got spark? Take the plug out but leave it connected to the plug wire, touch some part of the threads to the metal near the hole in the engine for the plug, turn it over a few times either with the pull cord or with a starter, and see if you get spark, if not, could be ign. coil module, bad plug wire, or bad wiring to the ign. coil module.

What causes a Poulon Pro riding mower with a 19.5 HP Briggs to shut down after only running for about 15 minutes?

Will it start rite back up?
Check to see if you have a low oil sensor,
Sometimes the oil sensor wills me it shut off when it's a little low on oil.

Saw wont start, getting fuel and spark

Try starting it with the air filter removed. If it starts, clean the air filter. It could also be the fuel filter. If you replaced all the fuel lines, make sure you didn't get the oil line mixed up with a fuel line

You still have a fuel filter, fuel lines and maybe a primer bulb to check too. Make sure you're getting fire to the plug and fuel.

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.

Poulon pro 18" smoking

The only way a two stroke can smoke is either it is running far too rich ( possible blocked air filter ) or there is too much or incorrect oil in the fuel, if the oil tank for the chain is sepereted from the crankcase by a gasket, it maybe the gasket leaking and allowing chain oil into the crankcase.

My Poulon blower begins to start but then dies? I tried changing the spark plug with no luck.

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.

It is firing from the spark plug but will not attempt to start . this is a poulon pro 42cc chainsaw.

Try a squirt of starting fluid in the plug hole, replace the plug and try to start. If you get a pop or two, then you have fuel problems. Make sure you have fresh fuel mix in the tank. Check the condition of all fuel lines including the in-tank line plus the fuel filter for plugging. Check the muffler and air cleaner for plugging. Does the engine seem to have good compression? If everything looks ok, then it may be time to disassemble the carburetor, clean and re-kit it. Set both needle jet screws initially at 1-1/2 turns out CCW from the CW stops (lightly). The engine should start and run--allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H CW until the engine runs faster, but is still 4-stroking. The correct adjustment is for the engine to 4-stroke, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L CW for fairly smooth running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed screw to stop the chain from turning at idle, but keeps the engine running. Hope some of this helps!

Having hard time with new poulon 18" chainsaw starting.

Since you have good spark and good gas the only things left to check are the air filter and the carbeurator. If the air filter is dirty, replace it. While you are at the auto parts store also pick up a can of a gasoline additive called seafoam which will keep your carb. clean. Finally get a can of spray carb. cleaner and put a couple short squirts directly into the air intake which is right there when you remove the air filter.
