Hi

Fill the gas tank with new fuel.Priming the engine(put some gas in the sparkplug hole for few times and start the engine until it runs constantly):There is small amount of water in the gas.

SOURCE: chain saw emitted sparks and now does not start.

Hi

When the engine get warm and die(I suppose)check the spark at the sparkplug.You can let the saw run until it ran out of gas and you will not distroy the engine.Change the sparkplug.

Was using saw ran fine stopped and returned next day will not start fuel fine new plug filterers gas and air still wont start took to local chain saw repair shop they said that because it had water in gas...


check the carburetor. If you have a stiff diaphragm then it won't run.
I have seen them that behave just like that. They will run fine, turn it off for a few minutes then they won't restart. WD40 isn't going to get it to run either, try a small amount of mixed gas right into the carb. It should run for a minute until the gas you put in runs out then die. If it doesn't run then you have a bigger problem

Ran out of gas put gas in wont start,pulled spark plug and put a little gas in ,it fired but wont stay running,the primmer bulb seems to be not working


Hate to tell you this but if you didn't mix oil with the gas properly (most likely a 40:1 ratio) then the chain saw will seize up and won't work again.

Chainsaw ran out of gas. Filled tank will not start now. Husqvarna 450 e=series 18"


Those saws are very finicky. First shake the saw very vigorously, as the saw running dry mayy have sucked dirt to the intake screen. Clean the plug and check gap. Prime, choke and pull till it starts. your plug may be foulled, this happens alot when a saw leans out from running out of fuel.

Do I have to use ethanol free gasoline?


It had better do so--or any saw brand that fails to run on ethanol blended fuels will see sales fall rapidly in the USA. We, personally, own one of these same saws which (when new) ran great for about 3 days, then refused to start. A trip to the warranty repair station got us a new ignition module. After return, it ran for about two days, then would not start again. The warranty repair then installed a replacement carburetor and about a year later, still seems to be working fine--it's a great hard working saw when it operates correctly. Good luck!

My saw runs a few minutes then gets hot and wont start


What is the ratio of the oil/gas mix?
Sounds like it is not getting sufficient lubrication.

Add 1/2 oz (about 1/2 shot glass) of 2-cycle oil to the gas tank and try again......

Check to be sure that you have LOTS of chain oil in the chain oil tank!!

Poulan saw wont start has spark and fuel


Look for a pinched/bare stop-switch wire (I assume that you don't have spark now). Also, check the ignition coil core gap to the flywheel magnets (I use card stock to set the gap). Make sure the plug wire was not damaged again.

HOMELITE Textron Chain Saw, wont stay running properly.


The preset is to turn them all the way in (Don't tighten them hard or you will damage the needle) and then back each out 1 1/2 turns. This will get you started. You can then run it at full throttle and turn the high speed jet in untill you hear a change in the RPM. Then turn it out untill you hear the same. Find the happy medium.

POULAN PRO 295: RUNNING VERY STRONG, FOR OVER AN


Remove the air filter, squirt a little fuel into the carb. Start and let run if it will for a few minutes. Could be you had some water in old fuel. and it is still in the intake of saw. If it still will not run after squirting some fuel into carb. You have a firing problem.
