Sounds like an ignition module/coil problem.

SOURCE: Husqvarna 235 not an e model, Will not start, no spark to plug.

Hello David; We are prohibited from contacting you directly. It sounds as though the ignition module is defective but it could also be a defective switch or interconnecting wire, try this please, it tests the entire system.

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You do not have to bend up the electrode.

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.


In the USA a duplicate receipt can usually be obtained from the merchant, there too? If not what about your credit card receipt?

I would try my local Husky dealer once the problem is isolated.

SOURCE: Husqvarna ranger 55 chainsaw starts but quits

I too have a rancher 55 and had what sounds like the same problem this week. It would start fine but run for only a few seconds at a time. I took it all apart today and found the problem - a cracked fuel line. In the places where I could see the hose it looked fine, but it wasn't until I removed the fuel tank that I found the crack...right where it exits the tank and then goes thru the housing above it. You don't need to remove the tank to replace the hose but it is easier that way. You do have to push it thru a grommet at the top of the tank. I read some other posts about checking the tank vent to see that it's not plugged up. Mine was ok so I knew it had to be something else. The vent is in a hole about the size of a pencil and is recessed about an inch into the tank on the upper right side. Its partially covered by a plastic cap that's part of the vibration damper, which can be removed to gain access to the vent. The vent tube can then be pushed out from inside the tank with the use of long needle nose pliers, but be gentle. I just loosened it then pushed it out with a finger. I put it all back together with a new hose and its running like new again!

SOURCE: 353 husqvarna chainsaw, floods during start process

Husqvarna says the initial carburetor needle valve settings are from lightly seated 1 turn CCW for both H & L.

Your Operator's Manual can be downloaded here:
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2004/HOUS2004_1140204-95.pdf
Once flooded Huskys are very hard to start. This works well on my 359.
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 - sets fast idle) 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 the next 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 - sets fast idle) choke, - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open - fast idle maintained) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Hope this helps
Lou

How do you check the spark on a Husqvarna 240 chainsaw?


Buy yourself a spark tester from the local chainsaw dealer, these will clip to the cylinder to create an earth, the plug cap fits to the end, it will have a large gap to load the ignition unit, if there is a spark when the engine is cranked the unit is ok.

Husqvarna 240 want start at all


Sounds like the ignition module or spark plug. The ignition module is what controls the spark plug that gives your saw the firing capabilities. Before you purchase one of those, replace the spark plug and see if that works. The 240 is a newer husqvarna; so I am skeptical to say it is the ignition module. However, any new product can have a bad part on it.

Your saw may have gotten flooded and won't start. Make sure your gas mixture is 50/50 gas to mixing oil. Always use fresh gas. If you make up gas and don't use a whole gallon at a time, put some fuel stabilizer in the mixture; so it will still be fresh the next time you use it.

Husqvarna chainsaw no spark


Ignition systems on newer saws are a solid state all-in-one package. Disconnect the kill switch wire from the ignition pack to make sure that the switch isn't broken. Use a fresh spark plug to check spark with. An old one that is black inside is likely shorted. If still no spark, replace the ignition module. Use a piece of card stock to set the flywheel magnets to module gap, then tighten screws
