SOURCE: pull cord difficult to pull..removed from saw it

Make sure someone hasn't run this saw without the oil in the fuel mixture. It is possible it is dry and some galling is happening. Or - if this saw is equipped with a compression bleeder (for easier starting), this could be not functioning and you're pulling through the normal compression (which can be a bit feisty!). Check for misalignment of some type having to do with the pull starter - check that the cord spool isn't rubbing on the housing when you pull. Good luck.

Re: Stihl 038 Mag AV. When following the operators manual starting for a cold start, my saw can a be very ugly beast. Quite often it will misfire and the starting cord will recoil so violently that it...


I would check the magneto key in the crank,could be sheared,allowing the timing to advance causing the firing of the spark before the piston reaches the top,hence the violent pullstart

My stihl 031AV chainsaw bogs down when pulling trottle


Ive had numerous similar faults with both stihl and husqvarna saws. all turned out to be leaking fuel tank vents. Im not sure if this model has a vented tank or not but it might be worth checking. Sounds like a fuel/air issue.

Your question does not include a manufacturer or model number; to provide all you ask we need them (below).
Oil Mix Ratio:
The following ratios have been recommended for the last 10-15 years.
Dolmar, Echo, Efco, Homelite, Husqvarna, Jonsered, Makita, Oleo-Mac, Red Max, Ryobi, Shindaiwa, Solo, Spear & Jackson, Stihl & Tanaka; all recommend 50:1.
1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
4 liters of premium fuel to 80 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
McCulloch, Poulan & Wen; recommend 40:1.
1 gallon of premium fuel to 3.2 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
4 liters of premium fuel to 100 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
Chinese chainsaws recommend 25:1.
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).

How do I start rental model 96.


Place the saw on full choke with the switch on. Pull the rope until it fires. Place the saw on half choke, and pull again, and it will start running. Half choke should release as soon as you hit the trigger.

It starts and runs but when you turn it off it won't restart.


I think the warm start procedure in the manual is causing it to flood. Try it like this, if you continue having problems reply below and we will try something else. PLEASE read #3 (Cold and Warm) a few times before attempting to start. Try it without 1/2 choke (your manual); completely open.
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 or at 1/2 choke position.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).
Hope this helps.

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.

Mcculloch 3516 chain saw, does not always start.


It must have spark, fuel and compression to run. Your task is to figure out which is missing.
Sometimes electrical components quit operating once beyond a certain temperature. Does it always start cold and become tempermental when warm?
IMO most hard start problems on a chainsaw with a good fuel delivery system are flooded.
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) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
The 3516 is a MTD McCulloch (Chinese). These saws are in a class by themselves. Good Luck

Poulan pro 46 cc 20 will not start, have had for 1 month, 3rd time I will use....any suggestions


Most starting problems with chainsaws are caused by flooding. Read and follow the start up procedure in your manual. Probably 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)
  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) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
All new saws regardless of maker are set to run extremely lean to meet EPA mandated air quality standards. They are also fitted with a device to restrict richening the carburetor beyond initial factory settings this too required by the EPA. Most big box stores put them on the shelf and sell them to the consumer with no thought of how elevation may impact saw performance or longevity. Homeowners usually aren't concerned about changes in the saws performance until it quits operating. This combination results in many destroyed saws and homeowner saws of most brands being called trash!
I don't know what the elevation where you are located is but I'll wager it is different than where the saw was set up. If my saw I'd visit a good (Stihl in my case) saw shop, and pay a couple of $ to have the carb adjusted (fresh fuel mix (1.5 months or less) 40:1 (3.2oz/1gal Husqvarna or Stihl 2 cycle oil) oil/fuel ratio, and the clean air filter). Any money spent is worth less than the aggravation when the saw won't start and you might spark a mutually beneficial relationship with a local merchant. HTH

Hartd to start when saw is warm


Are you choking it? You shouldn't be if hot. If no clean the air filter and try again. Are you setting the fast idle? You should be. Better? If your start procedure is similar to below and your fuel hoses have no cracks or holes the carburetor needs adjusting. A tune up might be a good idea. About $40 at your friendly neighborhood Stihl dealer (regardless of make). If taken in for tune up, get the oil/fuel ratio and use it until your next tune up (regardless of what manual says). HTH
