Question about Poulan FL1500LE 25cc 150 MPH Blower
These blowers are very sensitive to the type of fuel left in them over a period of time. Especially the 10% alcohol fuel mandated by the Federal Government. The fuel causes gunk to solidify in the orifices of the carburetor. It also solidifies on the floper pick up in the tank. You may have to disassemble the carburetor and clean the orifices and the flap valve and pump that is in that small carburetor. If you have to disassemble, then be sure to count the no. of turns the idle screw and high speed screw is set at so upon assembly, you have a starting point to tune the device.
You can first try using a infusion of Sea Foam additive or any other type of additive, to see if you can free up the carburetor fuel flow, but I have found that that often you have to disassemble the carburetor. You also can try to start the blower, by taking the air cleaner off and using a eye dropper, put a generous amount of fuel/oil mixture directly into the choke and it should start. Several applications of this may start the carburetor working on its own. The key to all of this is to drain the fuel/oil mixture out of the machine when storing it for long periods of time. Be sure to start the machine and run the excess fuel out of the carburetor. What happens is the alcohol and the gasoline evaporate and leave a hard deposite behind that freezes the flap valve and clogs the orifices.
