Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a Powercraft chainsaw with no spark. I know Chinese plugs can be dodgy, but how do I check the ignition coil. I'm thinking this could become more expensive than the thing is worth!

Check the spacing between the ignition module and flywheel, should be generally the thickness of a business card between the two. Try plugging in anothe ppark plug into the HT lead and earth it on the cylinder to see if you get a spark, that should rule out a dodgey plug.

SOURCE: I have a powercraft chainsaw, do you know the

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!

SOURCE: Craftsman Chainsaw will not start

It's your ignition, which you can take that stuff apart on the left hand side of the saw under the recoil. I have 2 of these, & you can get the parts. Maybe its just the magneto gap adjustment, which is like a business card or newspaper width gap. I would check that first. Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: wanted coil ignition module for Husqvarna 394xp chainsaw

I found an IPL for your saw here:
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Enter 394 as model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – for use with IPL
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

I chose the 92-10. The coil and wire were manufactured as separate pieces. I found both at Jacks Small engines. It is interesting that the same ignition wire fits a Poulan at 1/2 the cost. About $86 for both pieces at Jacks. HTH

Ryobi C4618 chainsaw worked great for two years, sat for a year. Fresh premium gas, fresh chain oil, fresh spark plug. Getting no spark. Ignition coil? Oil cut out?


check switch first then coil. Use a multimeter and set the positive lead of the multimeter in position where the spark plug would usually insert
ensure it has made good contact. Place the negative lead onto the metal body of the ignition coil. A working ignition
coil will give a reading of between 2.5 - 5 k ohms. Hope this helps.

Cpi 50 formula r got no spark


Hi, Anonymous if you have a CKP sensor it needs compression to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in the head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

It's about Husqvarna 345 chainsaw. I would like to know the resistance value between spark plug wire and blue wire from ignition coil, and between spark plug wire and the ground and finally resistance...


The easiest way to test is on the machine. Remove the ignition switch wire from the module coil. Check the pole gaps of the module by inserting a thin business card into the gaps after turning the flywheel magnets under the module. Loosen the module mounting screws to allow the module to contact the magnets, tighten the screws, and turn the flywheel slightly to release the card. Turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close up further. Use a fresh spark plug gapped at 0.020" and try for spark. If nothing, replace the module. This gets around measuring resistances while trying to evaluate the module. Hope this helps!

Husqvarna chainsaw stops when using it


Check for spark after it quits. If none, the ignition module may be dying when hot. If ok, check the muffler for plugging. Use compressed air to remove sawdust from cylinder and head area. If everything looks good, note whether the spark plug is getting wet with fuel after trying to restart the saw. If dry, check the fuel lines for cracking or other deterioration. Make sure the fuel tank vent is clear of debris. (Loosen the fuel cap for a moment, then see if it will start.) Hopefully, one of these suggestions will hit on the problem!
