    Saw won't start, spark plug works, new fuel ok, fuel line checked and ok, brake not on, less than a year old, less than 3 hours run time, even though spark plug sparks against the motor head when removed, there is no evidence of ignition when pulling to start, the switch is on. Help?

My guess is that you have a crack or a hole in one of your fuel lines. this is very common in chainsaws and weed eaters because they are used very little and sit for a long time. try checking this and repair if necessary. let me know if this works.

Chain saw won't start


Things to check,drain and re fill with fresh fuel/oil mix, replace the fuel filter in the fuel tank, remove the spark plug, rest on top of the cylinder and check for a spark, if this is all ok remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston through the exhaust port, any signs of damage and the saw will have to come apart for further investigation.

Craftsman chainsaw 18" 42cc doesn't start


Remove the spark plug and test for spark. If nothing, try a new plug set to 0.020" gap. If ok, put a small mount of fuel mix in the plug hole and try to start. If you get several pops, then check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for rot or damage. Make sure to use fresh fuel premix (40:1) using modern synthetic saw oil in it's own can and shake thoroughly just before filling each time. If you got no spark in the first test, expose the flywheel and ignition module. Remove the wire from the module that goes to the ignition switch and check for spark. If still nothing, replace the module using a thin business card for a gap gauge between the module poles and the flywheel magnets. If you did get spark, then investigate the ignition switch and wire for possible grounding. Hope some of this helps!

Petrol leaking when turned up side down,Ryobi Chainsaw


Upside down is not a usual sawing position--only upright, or turned to the left or right side is recommended. If you need to undercut something, keep the saw upright and cut with top side of the chain/bar.This can lead to kick-back if the tip comes free of the log/branch, so you need to control the saw carefully. That's also why there is a chain brake on all newer saws. The leaking may be occurring where the fuel lines pass through the wall of the fuel tank. Hope this helps!

If it is brand new, sounds like you should return it for the retailer to have repaired.

2 Cycle Gas Trimmer will not start


it is normal to see air bubbles in line when pumping the bulb. to make sure what the problem is, try starting several times, remove spark plug. if dry, yes no fuel, remove the carb. if wet, place plug on engine block and look for blue spark. no spark means you need new plug, plug cord or ignition module

Need to know what kind of oil to put in ryobi chainsaw


If it is an electric chainsaw (not gas powered) then the only oil you need is chainsaw bar oil, which lubricates the chain and bar during use (self feeding system). This goes into the chamber at the top of the saw. You can buy chain/bar oil for chainsaws at any good hardware store or outdoor power equipment store. You can use any brand of chain bar oil, most are pretty good.

If it is a gas/petrol operated model, I will need to know the model number to advise on that.

Ryobi pcn 4040 chain saw


I have the same model chainsaw with the same fault. The brake is not releasing when the brake handle is pulled right back. I can only run mine if the brake handle is pulled back to the main handle with a tyrap - defeats the object of the auto-brake completely. Design fault I reckon.
