Question about Garden

1 Answer

Power Tools I have a Husqvarna 61 serial no. 1611 110422. I have pulled the plug out and with the high tension wire connected, holding the plug against the cyl. head, turning the saw over with the recoil and there is no spark. I replaced the plug and still no spark. The saw has good compression with the spark plug installed and there is no problem with fuel or air. I need to know if the coils are the problem. I'm not sure how to test them or what the resistance values should be. The windings don't seem to be open because I get a reading of a certain ohms value (although I can't remember what they are right now). This model is an older one and has two coils installed on either side of the flywheel. One coil is connected to the On - Off switch and to the one side of the opposite coil. The other coil is connected to the spark plug lead and the other lead to the coil just mentioned. I've done a little searching for parts. There are two different coil assemblies available from Husqvarna - Part No. 501516201 and Part No. 501516102. I'm not sure which one to use. If you could help me sort this out I would be grateful. Thank You, Randy Email -

Year husqvarna 61 chainsaw serial number1983012237

Chances are, your saw is a model year 1983. Since they were made from 1979-2001, it fits in that category. MOST of the time, Husqvarna used only the first 2 digits of the serial # to display the year, but there are exceptions. Because of the number of digits in your serial # combined with it starting with "19" (there would be no model year 1919), I'm quite convinced it's an '83 model year. Your nearest Husqvarna dealer can verify this if you feel that it's absolutely necessary.

Husqvarna 61ff spark plugs problems

The early 61 has a coil on the right side, and an electronic pack at the left side of the flywheel, if there is no spark it is nearly always the electronic pack playing up, make sure the wire to the coil from the box is a good conection under the small screw, the later 61 has a single peice electronic unit, so this will need to be replaced.

Red max eb7001 has new coil,gapped right still no spark. im going crazy

1) The primary circuit: is battery, cap, resistor, capacitor,switch ignition+secondary circuit spark plug, distributor, high tension wires+spark plug.
the mayor problem arise in the coil and distributor, And the most common problem INCORRECT Choice de spark plugs or improperly gapped.
Rememeber the coil send 20,000-30,000 Vdc for spark plug.
Test with a screwdriver , pull out the center wire from the distributor cap and hold 3/8inch from a good ground. Crack the engine, if there no spark, or the spark is weak, the coil is defective or the high tension wires.
2) Bypass by a moment the baas resistor with a jumper wire while cranking engine If the engine starts, replace the ballast resistor.

God bless you.

I have a Husqvarna 61, it starts fine and will cut wood happily for the first five minutes of use, but then it looses power and stalls. It will start again fine, but then cuts out again soon after....

Start withe the inexpensive stuff first, pull the fuel hose out of the tank and change the filter on the end, by your discription it could also be an electrical issue, the early 61 had a two peice system, an electronic block to the left of the flywheel, and a coil at the right, if you have this system check the where the yellow two wires connect under the head of a self tapping screw under the coil, if the connection is ok it may well be a case of replacing the electronic box. The later 61 has a single peice ignition system, this may be breaking down when it gets hot, and need replacing.
Let me know how it goes, and if you need help with part numbers etc.

I have a husqvarna 61 it wound pull over with the plug in but with it out it pulls over just fine

Assuming you have fitted the correct spark plug ( BPMR6A ) then it has to be an issue with the piston, if this is a after market piston it could have poor tolerences, the piston crown should be completly flat, not domed, if the piston is slightly too tall it will increse the compression to the point where you can not crank the engine, take the piston out and carfully compare it with the old piston.

New starter switch for a husky 61

The switch grounds the ignition coil through the spade connection to stop the engine. The switch should be mounted in a metal panel (ground). Hope this helps!
