My Husqvarna 351 starts then stops after 1-2 seconds


Once the saw cools down will it restart and run fine? There are a couple other solutions that are not directly due to carburation. The first two solutions above are definitely your first options.

1. Ignition Coil: Highly unlikely, but possible. I seen some where they get hot and run fine while cutting, you shut it down for a few minutes for whatever reason and it won't restart or starts and stalls.

2. Crankcase Air Leak: We started to see more and more of these issues. There are a couple of quick ways to test this if you do not want to pay a shop to do an actual test. You want to do a cold test and a hot test. With a half tank of fuel, start the saw up for the first time of the day. While the saw is idling, turn the saw sideways from right to left, do this slowly, listen to the saw idle, if the speed changes by increasing or almost stalling, you have a crankcase air leak. Most bad air leaks won't be noticeable until the saw has gotten hot and the aluminum crankcase starts to expand a bit. Do the same thing once the saw has gotten hot. If this happens when it's hot, chances are that it won't start or starts and stalls until it cools down and everything retracts.
Test Results:
Sporadic idling when cold: Most likely just the oil seals, fairly inexpensive repair.
Sporadic idling when hot: Most likely crankcase itself is leaking, requires a complete crankcase gasket replacement. Can be fairly expensive to repair.

My chainsaw poulan p3314 will run fine for about five minutes, then cuts out and wont start until it cools down....???


Sounds like the engine is overheating and seizing. Most of the time this is a cooling or oil problem. Check the cooling fan for debris. Make sure you use the right oil mix.

Your fuel octane is GREAT ! Good to hear you are using fresh fuel. Make sure to use Husqvarna HP oil. It makes a difference of the heat generated by the engine.
1) If you can: Do not run the saw dry when cutting. As soon as you have the indication that it is almost dry, stop. Remove the fuel cap to remove pressure in the tank. Allow a 5 minute cool down before refueling.
2) I see your saw is a 2003, you may have debris under the flywheel shrouding restricting air flow: remove the recoil assembly and flywheel cover/shroud under the recoil. (if it has one)
Check to see if debris has gathered around cylinder fins.
Clean with compressed air. The ability for the flywheel to breath means more air to cool the cylinder and lower the overall operating temperature of the engine.
3) Make sure the air filter is clean and area is free of debris.
* Each item may be small, but each one builds on the operating temperature.

My chain saw starts just fine. It will work for about 30 minutes cutting well. After about 30 minutes the engine begins to miss and stall under load. Shortly thereafter the saw will not restart until it...


This sounds very much like a bad ignition unit, if they are going to break down they will do it when they are hot, the only answer here is to replace the unit.

Circular saw won't start after having cut pavers


You fried the motor and most of the time it isn't worth repairing, since the parts will cost you more that a replacement saw.

If you are going to continue to cut pavers, suggest you either take it very slow and cut 1 or .5 paver and then let it cool down. But a water cooled tile saw would be better.

My saw runs great for about 5 minutes then it seems to over heat and it quits running.


There are several things that can cause this problem First if you run it until it quits will it start working again after it cools down. If this is the case the it is shutting off thermal switch on motor. This could be from saw needing cleaned or lubed, make sure chain is not to tight, don't force saw to hard,let it cut at its own pace. Make sure chain is sharp. Anything that causes excessive friction will increase motor temperature. It is possible that thermal switch is about worn out. Hope this helps. Thanks

Runs fine for first 5 minutes then cuts out.


Most times that would be a sign of a coil going bad.When it stops quickly check for spark,if there is none you have a bad coil.
