The first thing I would do is remove the spark plug and watch it when you pull the start cord. If it sparks, you will know the problem is in the fuel intake. Check all the parts and clean them with some denatured alcohol.

Good Luck!

Hi , our cooktop started to show E99 code. What E99 means ? It occasionally starts to work again - but after day or two E99 appears again. Power off / on helped only few times

Hello Cecilia, thank you for your inquiry! If you are receiving an error code E99 on your Electrolux Induction Cook-top, it typically relates to a communication failure. If switching your breaker off and on did not resolve your issue, you may want to connect with a local servicer who will be best equipped to pinpoint the problem. If you don't know a qualified technician, you can use the service locator option on the manufacturer site to find one near you. Thanks, JK

I have a homelite 33 cc bandit cannot get carb tuned. And have hard time Getting it started when it does start it runs wife open what Tools do I need to adjust carb

It is more likely that you have a problem with a sticky check valve in the carburetor. I recommend sticking it in a $20 jewelry cleaner for 10 min and replacing any cracked or rotted hoses. this machine is meant for 50-75 hours of use. Stihl and a few other brands still make machines meant for years of service. Aside from this switch over to a ethanol free fuel which you can purchase at stores like Good luck Joe

Is the problem still occurring even after you removed the card? You have to remove it and even so, you need to get the right card type of up to 2GB especially of originality, from the manufacturer's agent. If the phone is not working yet you removed the card, try a phone reset.

What is the oil/gas ratio for this model chainsaw? I left my manual at our previous address. Thanks

Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 2gal premium/8oz chainsaw 2-cycle engine oil - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (1gal premium/2.6oz Stihl 2-cycle engine oil)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few weeks. Anything over 1.5 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH
