Question about Husqvarna "Chain Saw - 16" Bar, 3 Hp

1 Answer

Husqvarna chain saw starts and runs for 20 minutes then stops.

Saw starts fine and cuts for about 20 minutes. Then it starts to sputter and stops. I can restart and idle but won't run when I press accelerator. I have changed the plug, fuel filter and air filter.

    I have had the same problem. Mine was vapor lock. If your is vapor lock it probably wouldn't be too easy to start unless you open the fuel cap and let it depressurize. The husqys have a fuel tank vent where the fuel lines enter the tank. It is very possible for these to clog and not vent properly.

    My saw acts the same. The carb has been replaced with no change in performance. My saw is the 350 with the 18 inch bar.

Two things could be happening.......first is vapor lock......make sure you breather tube is clear and working........next is ....it could have a bad ignition coil on it.....after the coil gets hot the spark can become irratic or just not work any more.....

I have a Ariens snowblower deluxe 30 which is a year old. Starts fine and will run. Unfortunatley it is running way to low. I have replace the gas with fresh gas ran it through completely


It is very possible the carbureator needs a cleaning. Moisture can corrode the inner parts of them if left all summer. I find that the fuel usually does not go bad over the summer. I always start my snowblower once a month over the summer and then have no problems when the snow flies again. There was a time when mine was losing power and quitting also. There is a screw on the bottom of my carbureator that needed adjusting. If you are lucky that may be all you need. By turning mine in and out a bit I found the spot where the gas was correct and it worked fine again.

Talon electric chainsaw has no power, changed the fuse etc...any ideas??


talon chain saws have two control switches before they will start. One is the trigger that you pull and the other is a button or lever that has to be held in at the same time. These two controls mean that you have to have both hands clear of the chain before it works.

Hi we have a Massey Ferguson Dyna 4 5465 and it was working this morning and then it died we started it up and it ran for about 1/2 a minute when we try starting it now we can hear the fuel pump runs for...


am i to assume its a diesel ,if so sounds like its out of fuel but i could be wrong as its been many years since i have worked on tractors and all the fancy electronic gizmo on modern vehicles can confuse me.Now firstly check the key as no doubt as its a modern one it has a immobilisor and if the head of key loses its chip inside the key head it will never start unlike the old ones that would run on paraffin diesel or petrol ,the later ones were diesel only but again providing they had fuel and oil with the rad topped up they ran 24/7 ,thats a point check the oil level if its low it may stop the engine from starting

L E D christmas lights stay on when shut off.


No it's not. Your LED Christmas lights are okay. Your surge protector is fine too although the switch on your protector is an SPST type - it is connected to one line of your AC outlet. When turned off, the line with the switch is physically cut, but the other line is still alive. Some LED circuits and TFL lights blink even when the switch is turned off, probably because one line of the AC power is still (a)live. If this worries you, just unplug the LED lights from the protector.
