Remington 50 torpedo heater spits and sputers and then shuts down

I have a Reminton 50 torpedo heater and have used this unit in the last month for about five hours and now when I go to start it the fan starts but the ignition kicks on and off for about five to six times then it shuts off. It will not continue to operate.

    Could be fuel the photocell or spark unit or plug depending on type. Bad or dirty fuel can cause this problem but usually when the conditions as you describe it is a photocell or spark..It will not continue to run unless the cell sees flame. I would try and find a service center so you don't have to guess.

My Fs 45 will not start. I am unsure if i am even starting it properly but i think i am. It was purchased over christmas and has only been used twice. There is fuel in it and was working fine the last...


The fuel could be stale. I would empty the fuel tank and put fresh fuel in it. Make sure the unit is in the ON position. On the handle there is a switch. ( I is ignition (to start) and O is off (to kill the unit)). Then pump the primer bulb a few times to make sure there is no air in the fuel lines. Then move the choke lever up into the choke position. Pull the starter cord no more than about five times, it should try to start. Then move the choke lever down, into the off choke position. You should pull the cord a couple of more times and it should start right up. If you have put the choke lever in the on position and pulled it a few times it could be flooded. To clear out the cylinder and get the unit running at this point. Turn the choke to the off position and pull the unit a few times. Depending on how flooded the unit is it could take quite a few pulls.

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

From your Operation Manual

1:50 (2%) for all engines
It and an IPL can be found here:

Enter 455 (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – for use with IPL
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

I didn't know that chain saws had fuses? The black handle you are talking about is a chain break, push it forward allows the chain to drive, if chain break is back chain will not run around the bar, safety for saw kick backs.
If it will not start:
Check and see if it has fuel.
Is the switch in the on Position?
Do you have a fowl plug? is there spark?
Is the plug wire attached correctly?
Do you have fuel going to the carb?
Is your air cleaner, clean?
DO you smell gas, if so you have probably flooded it and now you will have to remove the spark plug and get rid of excess fuel or try starting the saw with the choke on.

IT STARTS BUT DIES AFTER ABOUT 5 SECONDS


what kind of saw is it? and if this is the problem u might have over primed the button on the side thats part of getting the saw started and maby flooded the carb and could be the reason why its hard to get it goin. Doesnt take much to flood a small motor. Oh and almost forgot do u have the right mixure of ur fuel? for my saw its 40:1.
