    my homelite 240 has no spark can anyone explain why

  • Thomas F. Schneider May 11, 2010

    Does it have spark? Does it try to start if you spray a tiny bit of started fluid in the carb? Been siiting a long time w/o use?

Try some starter fluid (eather) that wil give you an indication if it's ignition or a fuel problem.

I have a old homelite that won't start new plug fresh gas no spark


Most of the time on older engines, the carb needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Dont panic rebuilding is cheap an easy. The ports get clogged up sitting an varnish up. Try to clean out all orifices with small pieces of wire from steel or brass brush. Use carb cleaner to clean replace all gaskets an parts with kit. Dont forget to check fuel hose in tank they go bad often an should be replaced when carb work is done. Fresh gas an it should work

Homelite xl-98c will not start


Changing a spark plug rarely fixes a no start problem. You need to troubleshoot the saw more. Do a search on youtube or google about how to check for spark and how to check to see that the carburetor is getting fuel.

This homelite chainsaw is bran new


Remove the spark plug and check for blue and snappy spark. If weak or nothing, try another spark plug. If still improper spark, return the machine for replacement under warranty. Make sure you have followed all instructions for re-start. Good luck!

My 18in homelite saw starts ok, cuts fine but, when you shut bdown to refuel or take a short break, (over 5 min) it will not restart till it cools down or about a half hour. Thanks


Loosen the fuel cap when you shut it down tighten it before you restart. If this fixes it you have a plugged fuel vent. HTH

Homelite 14inch chainsaw


Open the gas tank then reach something inside the tank. You will feel a small fuel line in there. Try to fish out the loose end of the line and you'll find a fuel filter on the end of it. Clean it or replace it and then try to start it again.

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.
