Question about Husqvarna Chain Saw 20" Bar

Chainsaw kills when I press the throttle

When I give my chainsaw (Husquvarna) gas it will run good for a couple seconds then kill? I tried cleaning my air filter and nothing changed. Any ideas on what to try next?

    Mine seems to do the same thing as well but when I get it to run a little while longer, as soon as I try to cut a log, it dies on me. It starts again easy enough but it would be nice if it stayed on. Anyone has a solution??

    Mine did this last year, took it to the shop, dirty spark arrestor screen. I've been cutting once this season and the next day it started again.... Hard to start and once it starts it will run for 10 seconds and go to cut and it dies and won't start again. Very frustrating!!!

    own a 357xp, starts up no prob, then when you go to cut down a tree it seems like it wants to die out. Then when i do cut down the tree and move on to another, she doesnt want to idle for more then 10 secs.

My 372 xp did that and when I talked to the repair shop they even showed me. There is a fiberglass gasket that is used to mount the carburetor to the engine. I have no idea on how this happens, but I saw it with my own eyes. The gasket had actually folded over. They replaced it with a rubber one and have had no problem since. The saw was hard to start, would run as long as I didn't try to cut anything and when I did it would open up and then die. I could be giving wrong information, but that sounds exactly like the problem I was having.

I had the same problem with my Rancher 455. With a full tank of gas, it would run for about 10 minutes and die. I found the fuel line (inside the tank) was broken. I forgot to store the saw without fuel and the gas eroded the fuel line. I replaced the fuel line and filter. Works great!

As a follow-up to my post of my Husky 455 rancher dying when I go to cut, the local repair shop told me it was a dirty fuel filter and a carb adjust, it runs great now

It could be tank vent. it could also be fuel tank filter.to get at filter you must empty all gas and fish out fuel line with peice of wire with hook on end.if you look in tank you can see line and filter.

Sounds like the gas tank vent is clogged. Try opening the gas cap and running the saw (this is best done with a 1/2 full tank), if the saw runs ok with the cap loose the tank vent is clogged. Took me a long time to figure that one out.

I have a Ariens snowblower deluxe 30 which is a year old. Starts fine and will run. Unfortunatley it is running way to low. I have replace the gas with fresh gas ran it through completely


It is very possible the carbureator needs a cleaning. Moisture can corrode the inner parts of them if left all summer. I find that the fuel usually does not go bad over the summer. I always start my snowblower once a month over the summer and then have no problems when the snow flies again. There was a time when mine was losing power and quitting also. There is a screw on the bottom of my carbureator that needed adjusting. If you are lucky that may be all you need. By turning mine in and out a bit I found the spot where the gas was correct and it worked fine again.

Talon electric chainsaw has no power, changed the fuse etc...any ideas??


talon chain saws have two control switches before they will start. One is the trigger that you pull and the other is a button or lever that has to be held in at the same time. These two controls mean that you have to have both hands clear of the chain before it works.
