Make sure you are testing for spark with an inline spark tester. This type of test will connect between the spark plug lead and the plug itself. If no spark, then disconnect the wire(s) from the ignition module...don't just disconnect them from the switch. Now retest. If still no spark, then the ignition module (coil) is faulty and will have to be replaced. If there is spark with the wires disconnected, then there is a short in the wires leading to the switch or in the switch itself.
Good luck!

How can I start featherlite weedeater with poulan carburetor sst 25?


Your Poulan should have a green button on the side of it. Push and hold it. While most models have a green button, your may not. In that case, obtain the model number off the weedeater, go to Poulan.com/customer service and download the manual for your machine

I have a WEED Eater Model SST 45. I left the switch on all winter and now it won't start. What is wrong?


If it is a pull start, leaving the switch on did no damage to the weed eater.

Weed eater won't start. changed spark plug,


possibly on/off switch-has it gotten wet? Also check where wiring from on/off switch meets the wiring from the weedeater body.Check those connectors/crimps make sure theyre plugged in /right fit and not wet.Make sure youre ground wire is grounded/attatched/screwed to the machine.Ive had a weedeater get wet twice at the on/off switch and had to bring it in the A.C. overnight to really dry out.It worked.Hope this helps.If none of this does then its maybe the coil(semi-internal-no fun) or the fat wire carrying the spark from the plug to the body(semi-internal-no fun).Good luck!

Having a problem starting my Shindaiwa T22 Weed Eater.


take the spark plug out and pull the engine over with the spark plug in the wire and ground the plug to the trimmer and see if it sparks. if not flip the switch the other way and see if it sparks then you shall know.

I have a weed eater blower bv1085, It just stopped. I have changed the fuel filter, air filter and plug but it still will not start any suggestions


Put a spark tester on it see if you have spark,if not.its your coil,would probably be cheaper to buy blower at yard sale than buy a coil. If tou do have spark order a rebuild kit for your carb.When you take the carb off and clean it,look real close,there will be a number on the carb,you need that number to order the right kit,all carbs on weedeater brand equip. are like that.
