Question about Makita DCS6401 20 20",64cc Chainsaw 2 Cycle
Saw is like new. Only 2 tanks off gas threw it. Had carb. cleaned, still the same. Know dealer says I need a new carb. abd they cant find my warrenty. $100 for a new one, on a already over priced saw. The old Stihl were great saws. My dad has a 28, no trouble in 18+ years. Think the new ones are ****!
Hi brandon First change the sparkplug with the same heat range,Check and clean the gas filter with compressed air.Remove the carb and very carefully disassembly entirely.Check the gaskets and the diafragms.At the fuel pump side there is a fine screen(clean it).Check the needle,the spring and lever.Unlock the screws L and H(note how many turns are they).Put the corp of the carb in a special clean solution for 12 hours and then clean it with compressed air(something is clogged there).Put all back together and try to start the engine. regards savumihai71
