SOURCE: spark plug gap

hi kathy. this is an easy one. first of all you will need a spark plug gapping tool, about a dollar at any auto parts store. Your chain saw most likely calls for PLUG TYPE: Champion CJ6 SPARK PLUG GAP: 0.025 in. (0.63 mm).

Here is the website of a short video to show you exactly how to gap the spark plug. write back if you need any more info.

SOURCE: homelite 240 chainsaw spiting gas?

Spitting gas is not good. It's probably leaking there instead of going into the carburetor where it can fire the engine. Need to find that leak and change the hose it's running out of. You get gas to the carburetor by gravity and vacumn from the engine. With a broken hose you loose all gravity effects and vacumn that would pull the gas to the carburetor.

Homelites from the beginning of time have spilled mixed gas down over the cylinder head by the spark plug from the gas cap. Then you go out and cut massive amounts of wood and all the sawdust swirls around the head, sticks to the oily gas residue and sooner or later it builds up in the cooling fins surrounding the cylinder head. This causes the chainsaw to run hotter because it can't cool efficiently and the gas tank is right there close to the head and cylinder so it absorbs a lot of extra heat, so much so that i've seen the gas inside the tank literally boiling hot which forces it out of the gas cap vent and spills more oily gas mixture over the head to accummulate more sawdust and cause more overheating. Care should be taken not to overfill the gas tank. Keep the saw and cylinder head clean of buildup so it can run cooler and change gas tank caps often so that you have a clean vent incase you do build up pressure.

SOURCE: will not start - new fuel 50-1 mixture, checked

Will it start if you pull the plug and spray starting fluid in the chamber? if so then I'll bet you have a blown diaphragm in the carb or a plugged fuel filter or a bad gas line. hope this helps. Jeepfxr

SOURCE: Homelite chain saw fuel system

The line at the back of the tank gets the filter (check it for plugging) and the one nearest the cap doesn't use a filter (it is the return line from the primer bulb). The filtered line goes directly to the carburetor inlet port and the outlet port allows fuel to be pulled through the carburetor and out to the primer port. Check and replace any fuel lines that are in poor condition. If the engine has been running with the intake filter missing, the interior of the carburetor may be full of debris. Remove, dismantle, and clean the carburetor interior. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for an excellent 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Will not start

That seems to imply that the check valves in the primer pump and in the fuel pump section of the carburetor are bad or the air pressure just forced by the valves. The line without the filter is the tank return line from the primer pump. The primer pump is supposed to pull fuel from the fuel filter into the carburetor flooding all spaces within it it, then passing out to the primer pump and from there, back into the tank. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel after several pumps? The first try may take longer because you forced all of the fuel out of the carburetor with the air pressure. Make sure all of the carburetor fasteners are tight. It's possible that you have injured the diaphragm in the carburetor lower chamber when you blew air into the line. Go to: www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting. Make sure the spark plug gap is set at 0.020". Hope some of this helps!

I would suggest finding an inline checker so you can visualize the spark without getting shocked for damaging the plug boot.
If your carb is working then when you take out your spark plug it should be covered with fuel. This could be a sign of no spark or it might be a sign of a dirty air filter causing an extreme rich condition. Try starting the saw with a clean plug and no air filter in place to rule this out. If it is dry you either have a fuel line issue or a blocked exhaust. Chain saws have spark arresting screens on them that can load up with unburnt fuel and oil *(from a bad carb or blocked air filter) be safe and good luck!

Seeing a lot of fuel line problems due to ethanol. Make sure your fuel lines and primer lines are in tact. If the fuel line has broken, you may also need to clean out the inlet screen in the carburetor which can also become clogged.

I have this saw and really like it. Does the the primer seem to work? Most problems on these saws can be traced back to cracked fuel lines. Either tank to primer, primer to carb, or carb return back to tank. I would recommend it the saw it more than 3 years old to replace all the fuel lines. Total cost about $5. Buy your fuel line at Ace Hardware.

Remove, clean and reinstall the muffler and spark arrestor, if no better the "L" needle may need adjustment.
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com

  • CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
  • Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
  • Clean the spark arrestor and muffler; if the saw cannot exhale it cannot inhale.
  • There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full - may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.
Most chainsaws die because they are are run lean. I am going to inject a little Lou theory here. Air leaks and defective fuel delivery systems account for most chainsaw failures. Constant adjustment of needle valves can easily camouflage more serious problems that result in burning up your saw.

Describe your Husqvarna "Chain Saw -


Remove the spark plug and test for spark. If ok, try some starting fluid in the plug hole, install the plug, and try to start. If it runs a short time, it is not getting fuel. Check fuel lines including inside the tank. Clean or replace the air filter. If this saw is fairly old, the carburetor probably needs a re-kit and cleaning. Does it have good compression? Check the muffler for plugging. Make sure the fuel/oil mix is fresh. Good luck!

My 288 husqvarna wont start


Check for spark with a clean spark plug. If ok, squirt some starting fluid in the plug hole and try to start the engine. If you get a few pops, then work on the fuel system. Check the fuel lines from the tank to the carburetor for kinks, brittleness, or cracks. If it has a primer button, check the button for cracks or hardness and inspect it's lines. Do you have fresh fuel mix in the tank? Make sure the air filter is clean and in good shape. Check the muffler for plugging. If the saw is fairly old, the carburetor may need a re-kit and cleaning. Good luck!

Saw does not idle and is hard to start. It is a P3314 Poulan


You have gum in your carbeurator.
You can try a carb. cleaner that you add to the gas. I likve one called seafoam. You add one ounce per gallon of fuel.

Also, you must have a good clean spark plug, and a clean air filter. The spark, the fuel, and the air all contribute to an easy start and a good idle. If you havn't changed the spark plug lately do so, same with the air filter.
