Question about BLUE MAX Garden
Bought 2 of these chain saws, both won't start. On switch is on, gas & oil are full, no firing of the engine, tried with both choke out and in & followed the starting instructions in the manual. Any help to get these going?
I also have a BlueMax 45cc chainsaw that I could not start right out of the box. I got lucky a couple of times after many (20 or 30 pulls) but normally I just gave up. Many others online seem to be having this problem with this chainsaw.
It turns out the solution for me was that the starting instructions in the manual are not really complete, there is another step that aids in starting: it needs some throttle. The chainsaw does not like to start with power at idle. After setting the switch to on and setting the choke, as the manual says, before attempting to start, squeeze the throttle while pressing the side button to lock it. For me, this allowed it to FINALLY start with only a few pulls. I learned this when I ran across this video:

Hope this helps anyone else who runs into this.

If its new, check the carb float has gas in it. Sometimes the float needle will get stuck and not allow gas into the float.

Make sure carb is receiving gas. With saw cold prime 6x's pull out choke no throttle pull cord should turn over once then turn off choke and pull cord no throttle. This should work.

The issue sounds just like a carburetor problem. I had a saw that did the same exact thing, and found that I hadn't been adjusting the carburetor properly for years. I managed to find the instructions on-line, and then it ran like a dream, just every time I store it, I have to go back through the motions again.
Let me know if you need adjustment guidance and I will see if I can dig up anything.

Suggest you drain the fresh gas/oil and add a fresh batch but first add a gas stabilizer to your batch of gas/oil in the storage container. You will probably still need to use starting fluid for a few times When 2 cycle engines sit for a long period of time, the gas/oil mixture undergoes a change and tends to leave a residue on the delicate parts of the carb. The gas stabilizer will help that.
I always do the following for 2 cycle engines when I put them up for the winter. Empty the gas container on the device and then start it to use up any gas left in the fuel lines and carb. this keeps any residue from forming.
Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please leave a rating if appropriate. Thanks

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.
