Hi, remove the bowl off the bottom of the carby and clean it out. My best guess at this stage is that you have water in the bowl. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

One year old bolens push mower, 550 series B&S


How is your compression? If it is low, your piston rings and/or the cylinder walls could be damaged and pulling oil up to the combustion chamber, which will burn oil and foul the plug. If you overfill the oil you could possibly get this also. When was the last time that you changed the oil and/or put oil in it? Do you currently have proper oil level?

Poulan 550 Series push mower won't pull start


Hmmmm,,and the plot thickens. Without seeing the unit, i would have to think that when you pull the engine control cable bar, its not releasing the brake that sits against the flywheel. These cables do stretch. Pull the engine cover and you will see the brake against the flywheel. Pull the engine control handle and watch and see if brake is releasing. If its not, replace the cable.
That would be my bet. I hope this is of some help.

I have a Poulan PRO 550 series that I just bought 4 weeks ago. It won't start. The oil is at a good level. There is plenty of gas. Everything was checked and it still won't start. I am so disappointed. Has...


There are several possibilities for not starting. Water in the gas, Carburetor jet clogged ; Spark plug needs replacing, air filter needs replacing, or you have old gas. Or if you have hit something the flywheel key may be sheared. Hope this helps.
Good day.
