Question about Poulan Garden

1 Answer

Poulan pro 600 6 hp push mower. When you pull start it, half way back thepull start jerks out of your hand and flies back in, meanwhile as this happens the motor turns over once, doesn't start, and a small amount of smoke comes out. Spark plug is good, has good gas and oil. Everything has been cleaned out. Any ideas? It has a briggs and stratton motor.

How do I change fly wheel key


You need to pull the blower housing off. Then remove the the starter cup from on top of the flywheel. Pry off the flywheel usually by insert a prybar under the flywheel pulling up while tap on the side of the flywheel. you will see the key in the center of the flywheel. after removing the old key, replace flywheel then insert key into grooves after you line the two grooves up.

Primer pump lacation


Not all mowers use this feature to start their fuel flowing. Try using choke for 2-3 pulls, and reduce to half-choke if it starts. If all else fails, make sure it's not flooded by opening up the throttle for a few pulls.

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 self propelled lawn mower that won't start. It ran fine this morning, but after I took a break and went back outside to finish mowing, it wouldn't start. It sounds like it won't...


You need to check a few things. The spark first, you need to check if it is running correctly, does it have spark, by doing this: take out the spark, put it against a metal surface and pull the pull start if it spark, your good if not you need a new spark plug. Clean out your airfiilter it migth help too. Buy some carb and choke cleaner squirt it up theough the airfilter hole, and start the engine, this will clen the carb. yOU MIGHT NEED TO TAKE OUT THE CARB AND CLENA I OUT THROUGHOULY!!! Try that and it whould work after all these steps!


This hapened on my mower and it turned u that the spark pug was too bigfor the motor and the valves were totally broke!!!Not good...
