Hi bill
Remove the plug, and crank it over a few times with the plug out to blow out any accumulated fuel.
Dry and clean the spark plug and reinstall and recrank
Please take time to rate me

Husqvarna 235 chainsaw won't start seems to be flooding have replaced carb and primer bulb


Try changing the air filter first as a dirty filter will cause an engine to flood and hard to start. Do this before you start tearing anything apart.

My chainsaw was working fine. I cut down a couple of trees. I stopped it and now it will not start. Can you flood a chainsaw. Any help would be appreciated. Tony


yes you can flood them, set the choke and pull the rope a few times, that should clear a flooded motor, if this doesn't correct it, the plug may be fouled, remove it , see if its wet with fuel,, blow it off and try again

Chainsaw will not start. might be flooded. only fairly new.


If the saw is flooded, remove the spark plug, switch the ignition off, push the choke in, now crank the engine approx ten times, now leave the saw for an hour, re fit the plug and try to re start the saw not useing the choke. Dont forget to switch the ignition back on.

Saw runs fine for about 15 minutes,then the idle speeds up,then it dies,almost like it is flooding


Do aclean or overhaul of all fuel components.Change the spark plug or the coil aka=spark plug cable.But if your saw in lees the 2 yrs you need to follow the starting guide in order to avoid flooding.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

Starts hard floods easily even avoiding the primer


Prime away... on a chainsaw it does NOT squirt fuel into carburetor. It draws fuel from tank, through carburetor, and returns it to tank.
Using the choke however will flood it in a second once it has fired. with a good fuel supply, 99.5 % of chainsaw won't start problems are flooded.
Your manual start procedure should be similar to this:
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
The real key on your Husky is to open the choke once it attempts to fire. Closing the choke sets the fast idle but leaving it closed only floods the engine once warmed up or after it attempts to start. True of Stihl too but slightly different start procedure.
If you can not find your manual you can download one here:
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
Hope you found this helpful.

Blowing out gas at the start. Drained and filled with fresh gas mixture. Cleaned spark plug and srayed carb cleaner in hole. Pull choke pull cord , blowing gas out of carb. Stuck float? Buy carb kit from...


No floats in chainsaw carbs. Severly flooded most common start problem with chainsaws. Read and follow the start procedure in your manual. Don't use choke on flooded engine (may set fast idle, set then turn off)!

Husky viprating on tick over and now wont start


I think you are saying it sputters but won't run. Once it attempts to fire open the choke or it may flood. My 359 start:
Cold: pull out choke control, pull starter (usually twice) while listening for attempt to start. Once it fires push choke control in and
continue pulling (usually once more).
Warm: pull out choke control (sets fast idle), push choke control in, pull starter.
Page 19 of my manual.

Once flooded these are a bear to start.

Chainsaw started just fine last night....won't start today.....pulled the plug and appears to be flooded


Hi wildcatlee,

I would love to help you with your problem. OK so if they chainsaw appears to be flooded or is flooded take it apart start by taking off any covers. Then there should be a little carburetor take that off and clean it out real good blow it with the air compressor. Open the chainsaw and find where the pistons at if you find it then blo that out with air from an air compressor real good. now put it all back together and it should start. One last thing take off the spark plug and clean it and put some gas on it, It should work now
