395XP chainsaw

The 395 has an electronic ignition, as this unit works off speed of rotation you need to make sure you are cranking the engine fast enough to check for a spark, to eliminate the switch and wire, dissconnect the wire from the unit itself, now try for a spark, if still no spark with a new plug, you will have to replace the unit

Stihl st410 , after first pull it fires then turn...

Remove the carburetor and open the lower chamber--check the condition of the diaphragm and fuel metering valve--either of which can cause flooding. The diaphragm should be flexible and not cracked or have holes in it. The metering valve point should be in good condition. Go to: for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetor theory and troubleshooting. This information applies to nearly all saws even with other brands of carburetor. When you have the carburetor installed, remove the spark plug, open the throttle fully, choke and ignition switch off, then pull the engine through to expel the excess fuel from the engine. Reinstall the plug and attempt to start normally. Hope 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!

When fueling with saw on side, fuel runs out the clear plastic hose that pushes into top of fuel tank

I suspect that this is a replacement fuel line. Husky uses rubber lines. Does the leak occur at the tank interface or does the line just hang free? If free, the end probably should go to the output side of the primer bulb. Replace this line with the correct sized rubber line. Most service shops carry various sized lines for nearly every saw. Hope this helps!

Chain will not stay on

Hi Dave:
If you hold the bar nose up when adjusting and tightening the bar, then I think your saw is like detail A here (may not be your saw):
Configure it like detail B and the problem is solved. I did a quick search for item 16 (<$25) and available. You also need item 14 (2 each, $1±), and a scrench ($10± at a local saw store after you get the bar nuts).

If the saw listed is not yours, you can find yours here:
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000; please contact Husqvarna for single digit clarification
15 = week produced – March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

Hard to start.

My Husky 359 workshop manual says on Appendix A (USA) says "H" 3/4 turn CCW from lightly seated. "L" 1.5 turns CCW from lightly seated.
Page 36 (every other nation on earth) 1 turn CCW from lightly seated for both the "H & L" needles.
There is no recommended initial "T" setting. (from manual) "The idling speed is correctly set when the engine runs smoothly in all positions and there is a clear margin to the speed at which the chain starts to move". I wager your manual would be similar.
These are initial settings and the saw needs to be adjusted for performance. Start with a clean air filter and a fresh fuel mix @ 50:1 per Husky (1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil).

This explains performance carburetor adjustment better than I can:
Carburetor Adjustment by
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.

There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.
I hope you found this post helpful.

I have a powercraft chainsaw, do you know the petrol / oil ratio ?

Hi, Most chainsaws use three mixes, which are 32:1, 40:1 or 50:1. Most are labeled somewhere on the saw. If you are unsure, use the 40:1 and watch the smoke, too much smoke use less mix, but don't run with too little, it is supposed to smoke some. If you see any oil coming from the exhaust it is too much and can't burn it all. Good Luck, hope this Fixsya!
