Question about Husqvarna "Chain Saw - 16" Bar, 3 Hp

455 Husqvarna chainsaw will not run

Kill switch is not on. Have good spark on new spark plug. Have good gas in tank. This saw has very few hours on it. Tried priming carb., tried priming cylinder.. match will ignite fuel and it works in other saw fine.
Could exhaust be causing problem? Or air mixture?

My troy-bilt snowblower will not start. I stored it right last winter. I filled it with fresh oil & gas two days ago. I've done the starting procedure over and over again. Added fuel stabilizer and seefoam...


Check to see you are getting spark at the spark plug. Take the plug out and put the plug wire on it and ground the the nut on the spark plug to the engine block and crank the engine and see if you get spark at the plug. If so then your carburetor has to be taken apart and cleaned.

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.

My weed eater will not run with the choke setting wide open.


You may have a pinhole or crack in the small hose that runs from the fuel tank to the carburetor. If equipped with a primer it may also have a small crack or pinhole. Either case may cause the carb to suck air instead of gasoline. Other possible reasons are a plugged muffler causing too much back pressure or a partially clogged fuel filter. (The fuel filter on many weed whackers are located inside the fuel tank at the end of the fuel line.)
