Homelite xl chainsaw won't start. I took out spark plug, put in some fuel and if fired right up. But won't run.


You need to clean out the carb. possibly replace the Needle Valve and check the Diaphram for stiffness. Also check the fuel line for cracks and rott.

While trying to start the saw the compression is so great that it is near imposible to pull the start rope ....ie won't spin fast enough to start ... new plug ,,,, new gas .....no start ,,,tired arm...


If the carb is flooding it will fill the cylinder with fuel, this will cause a hydralic lock, making it near impossible to crank the engine, remove the spark pluf, turn the ignition off, crank the engine, if fuel pours out of the plug hole then it is well flooded, you will need to get a pressure test on the carb to check the needle is not leaking, this will be the quickest way to check the carb.

Just bought a poulan 14 inch chainsaw...filled it with bar oil and the gas oil mix. Trying to start and won't even turn over. Any suggestions?


If it wont turn over, it may be because the cylinder is full of fuel, remove the spark plug under the top cover, with the plug out does it no crank over, if so give it a good few pulls to clear it out, replace the pluf and try again, using no choke and full throttle, just one point you didnt fill the fuel tank with oil by mistake??

The Stihl 038 super won't start. It is getting too much gas on the spark plug when I try to crank it. Just replaced the carb hoping it was that but still it won't start. The saw was working fine a...


hi there mwb15
have you made sure the ignition coil is producing enough voltage to fire under compression load ?

you may get a spark at the plug unloaded but under load it may be breaking down / weak making you think its got a fuel problem ?

does your system use a cdi coil system or point/condenser system ?
spark usually falls into weak spark, no spark catergory

if compression , fuel ( you replaced carb) and exhaust are ok , and you have air and vaccuum tight c/cases only things left are timming and spark

remember F A C T S

F = Fuel A = Air & ( air tight c/cases ) C = Compression T = Timming S = Spark

compression should be about 130- 140 approx if in good running order

take a look and let me know

First use since last year. can't get to start. ran out of fuel before storing, oil is full.. help ! arm getting sore pulling cord..


First you should get a new spark plug which might solve the problem. If it still won't start what I normally do with chainsaws, lawnmowers etc is to remove the spark plug and pour about 5ml (one teaspoonful) of fuel into the opening. Dip the spark end of the plug into fuel so the spark gap is wet and replace the plug in the saw. Try starting it now. The fuel you poured in should ignite and may be enough to start the saw. You may have to repeat the process 2 to 3 times. Don't be tempted to use more than 5 ml of fuel or you'll flood the saw.

I hope this solves your problem.
