Question about Poulan "Poulan" Push Mower
As far as running poorly. You should check the quality of your fuel and make sure your fuel can hasnt collected water. This happens a lot with todays fuels. If you arent sure. Dump the fuel into a vehicle and let the can dry out completely and buy fresh alcohol-free gas. Also dump the fuel from the mower.
Make sure the air filter isnt over oiled. You can do this by removing it and squeezing out any excess oil.
This mower should never have been fitted with a mulching blade.
The engine is too small. It would probably cut grass better if it were a bagger but then it would be way harder to push.
The mower has a collar that holds the blade on the keyed shaft.
If it hit something hard enough it could sheer this key. But then the mower wouldnt cut grass at all.
You should make sure your blade isnt on backwards. Sometimes they get assembled by someone who forgets the blades go on either way. Some manufacturers actually put edges on both sides to take advantage of this fact.
With your spark plug wire off of the spark plug tip the mower up and look at the blade. Do you see the beveled edge facing away from the chute opening? If so you should remove the blade and turn it over.
Good luck and be careful.
