Question about Poulan Garden

Open Question

PO500N225 Poulan rotary mower, purchased new in July--trouble starting it. Ran a few seconds, then stopped. Now will not start at all. Also, where can I get a user manual for this fine piece of equipment. None came with the purchase, and all I find are parts lists on the internet. Ha! Please help

This one does not have a clock function. It doesn't show anything in the manual about setting the clock and ours never had the time on it.

SOURCE: mower starts fine, however have to keep priming

You will need to check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spraywith carb.cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals and/or jet in carb. These portals can become blocked. you may need to replace the diaphragm. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE:If the carburetor parts are more than four years old, and depending onthe use, you will need a new carb. kit if the cleaning doesn't work.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

I just bought a Poulan PR550N21RH3 Rotary Lawn Mower. The first time I used it it worked fine. While I was mowing the second time I heard a big "POP" then it began to shimmy. What should I do?


check the blade to make sure its on securely and isnt bent or broken.

If something went wrong other than blade damage I would take it back and ask for a replacement.

Primer will not pull gas to carb and will not run. gasket replaced


You can check the priming circuit manually by pulling the plug off the spark plug and then with our hand over the air inlet to the carb have someone give the mower 3-5 pull starts. Then, put the plug boot back on and try to start it. Did it work? Is it still running? If it started and ran your primer bulb probably has a leak and needs replacement. If it started and ran for a few seconds and died clean out the main jet and the bowl inlet.

You can look at the breakdown of the carb in your manual to see where these parts are. Or just go online and find a familiar carb diagram and work from there.

Good luck and be careful!

Cranks over but will not start....when it did start (once) it ran for a minute or two and stopped. The mower is 1 year old. What to do?


There are a few things you should check.

1. Make sure the undeside of the deck is allow free rotation of the blade.
2. Make sure the blade is secure firmly to the shaft.
3. Adjust choke (lever at front of engine).
4.Does throttle cable pull carb linkage adequately?
