With these pool cleaners, make sure that you check the filter screen in the filter and clean it if necessary. Clean the skimmer basket, pump basket, and pool filter. Check all of the hoses, connections, and swivels for leaks that could cause loss of water pressure. Make sure that your wheel RPM is correct.

2007 polaris ranger 700 xp stop running all at once will not crank

sounds like a problem with the charging system on the battery. take a volt meter and check the voltage on the battery. If its lower than what the nameplate voltage is, it wont produce enough power to crank the engine. also check the wire connections.

This sounds like the thermal sensor on the head/block is faulty or in some cases the wires have shorted to the chassis somewhere causing the fan relay to stay on, clould be a faulty relay also.

Have spark. have fuel. No start. was running well with intermittent choke use to correct bogging. wassup? I.m confused.

there is a chance that your computer needs to be ' Re-Flashed ',, this is now the most common problem with the Polaris snowmobiles -- they just can't seem to get this all right. I have the 900RMK ( the first one ) and after going round and round with Polaris ( in and out of the shop over 20 times ) it is now running good. lots of times the dealer will re-flash the unit with no charge to you and it only takes a few minutes.
sorry to hear that you are having troubles with your Polaris --- I work and live out in the middle of nowhere Alaska and I see many sleds come through here and it is always a Polaris sled that brakes down out here and needs to be towed out ( with a very sad rider steering it )..and after all my trouble that I had with mine and lack of help from Polaris I will never buy Polaris ever again. but stop by the dealer and get the re-flash,, it will work great after that,, ( until the next problem :-) ).
Happy NewYear !!

4 cycle Polaris snowmobile 2006. the engine runs fine but bogs down after some running time. Short wait and restart, the engine runs fine and then bogs down again

Sounds like the coil is getting hot and stops... I have seen this on many 4 strokes. Check first to see if it has a resistor coil or a built in one. May be just the resistor..........
