    I had the same problem of No spark some while back, it went back to the service depot and cost over £60.00 for a new spark pack, now its done exactly the same thing once again, in less than a year, do you know where I can get a new spark pack from, this time I will do the job myself now that its stripped down already, I think last time it only cost about £20.00 and the rest was labour!!!!!, but of course they were able to source the correct part. its a PCN4545 45cc 18inch Petrol Chainsaw

If you want to check for a loose wire on the on/off switch or a problem with the spark plug wire contact on the plug, but personally if this tool is new I would return it and get a new tool without having to fix this one. Also I would try another spark plug before considering taking back. Sometimes plugs go bad

Have spark with plug out. no spark with plug in . What is causing this

It sounds like the spark is weak and is breaking down under compression in the cylinder. Your spark should be fat at blue, when the coil is failing it becomes thin and white.

My son accidentally put straight gas in our gas weed wacker, now it won't start. drained gas and replaced with correct mix, still no go.

Try taking the spark plug out and spraying a little WD-40 in the hole and letting it set for a time. Then pull the cord slowly one time and then replace the spark plug and try to start.

Echo CS600P saw, brand new, ran it last weekend for about 30 minutes. Started and ran flawlessly. Trying to start today and it seems as if it is flooded. I've taken off the spark plug, turned it upside...

Try a new spark plug and make sure gap is .030.and check the air clener and make sure it is not plugged can clean it with soap and water then dry it out.if this doe,s not work you have a carb problem.

Haven't ran my generator since jan. 07'. Tried to start it and no go???

Can be several things. More than likely stale gas. Take the gas line off of the carb. or the tank. Let all of the gas pour out. Remove the spark plug. Pull the rope over and over until it stops blowing gas out of the plug hole. Replace the hose and fill up with new gas. Is the spark plug wet from gas? You can dry it out with a tourch or a blow dryer. Then plug it back to the wire and let it sit on the head of the motor, so it is getting ground. Pull the rope and see if it sparks. If it does the put plug back in and start it up?????
