Question about Poulan Garden

1 Answer

Blower used 9 mos. then would not start. Left at one repair shop 3 mos. and another for 5 mos.. Still not repaired. First said couldn't get parts, second said Poulan was too slow to pay warranty claims (that shop is now closed down. Third shop I contacted refused to work on Poulan products. No other authorized Poulan repair shops in my area. Guess you get what you pay for.

Poulan is a lower-end manufacturer of these small engines and they have had issues in the past and present with poor design, engineering, subpar materials and warranty yes, your last statement rings true. Most of their products are considered "disposable" tools by today's standards. Many shops around the country refuse to try to "fix" these machines because to tell the truth, sometimes they just can't because of the poorly engineered parts and design.Any fix on these machines is just temporary...with the pull start.recoil units having several issues in the past.

Starts, 3 secs, turns off, restarts 3 secs repeats

Try removing the battery and restart. Could be a bad memory module, fan not working, CPU going bad, graphics chip overheated and going bad. I assume it is out of warranty so you might have to take it to a repair shop.

Blower part stopped working. What could the problem be?

see the steps and fix it. GOD BLESS YOU
  • 1
    Find the cause of the problem. This may be obvious: if the starter cord is broken, then obviously that's your problem. But if you simply have a blower that won't start and nothing apparent to cause the problem, it's time for a bit of investigative work.

  • 2
    Examine the starter mechanism. Is the spring in place? Is the rope wound tightly? If anything is coming apart in there, then your starter won't work properly, and you won't be able to start the machine.

  • 3
    Check the spark plug. If it is old or appears blackened or corroded, it may be keeping the blower from starting.

  • 4
    Check the fuel tank and fuel line. If the cap on the fuel tank is missing, cracked or failing to seal properly, or if you have a leak in the fuel tank, the lack of pressure in the fuel system will cause problems. Check the fuel line as well for any cracks, leaks or stoppage.

Fix the Problem
  • 5
    Repair the starter assembly by removing it from the body of the blower. You can take it to a repair shop to have it rebuilt for a small charge (usually less since you've already removed it), or you can repair it yourself by purchasing a new spring and starter rope, installing the spring and rewinding the rope. Then screw the assembly back into place onto the blower.

  • 6
    Replace the spark plug by unscrewing the old one, brushing away any debris and screwing in a new spark plug.

  • 7
    Replace the tank or line. This is the only way to repair leaks in the tank or line. Be sure you order the correct part (not just any tank will fit any blower) and the right size of fuel line (usually one of the smallest available). If you're not sure, call a repair shop and have the model and serial number of your machine handy. With this information, they can help you find the right parts.

Need to replace pull cord on homelite z830sb

Start from the bottom and work your way up. This is not an easy repair. You have to almost completely dissassemble the entire blower to replace the cord. You will need a T20 and T25 torx tool, a 9/16' wrench or socket, 40" of #3.5 rope and about an hour. A repair shop will typically charge $20 to $40 in labor for this repair.

these repairs are usually best left to an electromechanic but it can be doen by anyone with basic knowledge following the troubleshooting section in repair manual which can be purchase from local parts shop or online haynes or chiltons will do and get a multitester.

First check basics: are the fuses good to defrost blower? (fuse access refer to manual)
then see if there is power to the blower/defrost switch use multi meter at 20V setting
then see if there is power to blower unit under dash (see manual under interior section to access blower motor)

if this checks out your blower motor is faulty replace and your good heres a few places to get the best deal on parts

I would bet the cabin/pollen filter has not been changed for a long time. This can cause lots of issues including incipient blower motor failure. For illustrated tutorials on all things ACC related for Saab 9-5, including step by step replacement and repair procedures, see this site under A/C and climate control.

Dead t v

Good Luck! My SSL2006 tv would cuts off when turned on. Under warranty, the local auth. repair shop tried unsuccessfully to replace parts to fix it. In addition, the repair shop told me it was difficult getting thru to parts support. Either the wrong parts were sent, the right part didn?t work, or additional authorization was required to repair TV. On many occasions I made calls to Sylvania, on the repair shops urging, to find out the status on its repair parts to help get the right parts sent. The set was in an auth repair shop from Feb.-Aug. The shop couldn't fix it. It was sent to Sylvania's repair center in CA, August 18th. WHEN WILL I GET MY TV BACK? I want a new TV!! I have been without this TV for over 6 mos.! I'm very upset with customer service and its repair centers and will never buy nor will I recommend purchasing a Sylvania product.
