SOURCE: 16'' chain Saw wont fire

Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
Thank You for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Poulan Pro Chain Saw Bar Chain Oiler Stopped Flowing

The filter can usually be caught with a hooked wire and drawn up far enough to deal with the filter. Oil filters are not prone to plugging unless the oil used is contaminated. If you run the engine without the bar and chain attached, oil should ooze out of the engine side port. If nothing, suspect problems with the oil pump. Some saws use a plastic gear in the pump and can strip the teeth of the gear. You should find it located behind the clutch assembly. Once you have oil flowing from the engine, clean the bar drive-end oil ports that go from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side. Finally, run the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. I have no idea what the plastic tube might be (a manual pumper perhaps?). Hope this helps!

How to replace a kill switch on a husky 288 xp

There should be only 1 screw and one wire connecting the kill switch. The kill switch simply grounds out the ignition. So it is difficult to install improperly. The wire coming from the switch goes directly to the ignition module.

If the lead is broken, depending on which saw it is, you can buy a replacement lead. Unscrew the wire from the ignition module and screw in the new one after you put the end and boot on it. If it doesn't unscrew then you will have to buy a new module

Electrical wire?

Because of the simplicity of the ignition system, there really is no diagram necessary. Husqvarna uses a simple two-wire harness in that unit (e.g., p/n 544 08 28-01) that has two female quick-connects at one end and one female quick-connect and a ring terminal at the other end.

The end with the ring connector is the magneto end. The female quick-connect there attaches to the magneto primary circuit control terminal, and the ring terminal there is secured under the head of one of the two magneto armature mounting screws.

The opposite end of the harness goes to the ON/OFF switch on the case side near the handle. This switch is a simple single-pole/single-throw switch that allows the engine to run when in its open position, and kills the engine when in its closed position. The engine shut-down occurs through the effective action of grounding the magneto control terminal to the magneto armature frame, as accomplished through the circuit through the ON/OFF switch when that switch is closed.

To identify the armature, harness and switch for your saw, go to the Husqvarna Manuals Download Page for your saw, identify the list by the build date of your saw, and download the desired list. (I like the 2009-02 version as it has the sections identified and bookmarked, but be sure you ID the correct parts for your saw. It might help to DL your manual as well as the 2009-02 version for reference purposes.)

The armature and harness will be found on the Ignition / Flywheel page (items 7 & 8, respectively), and the switch will be found on the Air Filter / Intake / Carb and Air Purge / On-Off Switch pages, as item 9 (e.g., p/n 504 00 34-01, includes retainer bail).

If you are getting no spark from the plug wire when cranking the engine with the ON/OFF switch in its ON position, the problem must be in one of three places -- the magneto or its mounting, the harness, or the switch. A short between the magneto control terminal and the magneto armature will kill the spark, as will any short between the two wires in the harness. Similarly, an ON/OFF switch that fails to open (internally) will have the same effect as leaving the switch set to its OFF position.

If the engine will not stop when the ON/OFF switch is moved to its OFF position, an open magneto circuit is indicated. This can be due to a broken wire in the harness, a loose or corroded connection of the grounding (control) wire to the armature frame, a break in the magneto primary circuit to the control terminal, a loose or disconnected wire at the ON/OFF switch, or an ON/OFF switch that fails to close (internally).

While broken or shorted harness wires are easily repaired without replacement, any magneto or switch failures will usually require replacement of the failed component.

Husqvarna 40 Chain Saw The saw has been unused for about a year -- before that, always served well. I purchased fresh petrol and a new spark plug, cleaned air filter etc. The I noticed: no spark at all,...

The model 40 has a single piece electronic ignition, it cannot be repaired it will have to be replaced, before replacing, check the air gap between the flywheel and the ignition unit, this should be 0.3mm, also diss connect the earth cut out wire from the terminal on the unit and try for a spark again, this will rule out any fault with the wire or the switch, the ignition works off speed of rotation so you will have to crank the start as if you were starting the machine.

Chain saw has no spark

If it has no spark there are only a few that will cause this, firstly dissconnect the wire from the ignition switch, try again for a spark, if no spark, remove the starter cover, now remove the cut out wire from the ignition unit terminal, try again for spark, if no spark, the ignition unit is bad and will require replacment.
