Question about Garden

1 Answer

Saw heated up, now it won't start. I have spark, and I know that it is not seized up, because I can still pull on the pull cord. It's not carburation either, because it was just running. It just doesn't sound the same when I pull on the cord either, could I have sucked in a valve or something when it heated up? Thank you for your time

Check tightness of cylinder bolts. This may take a bit of work to get to them.

Yard man pull cord will not pull


Remove spark plug and see if you can spin the blade . If the motor spins than the pull cord assembly is seized up and needs to looked at and fixed. If the blade won't spin then the motor or the cord assembly is seized . Make sure you remove the spark plug before trying to spin the blade.

Stihl chainsaw MS460 Can't pull recoil


It could be the recoil is stuck. a couple of things to check. Take the clutch and chain cover off, remove the spark plug and manually try to turn the motor over by turning the clutch. If the motor/engine is not seized, take the pull start/recoil cover off and pull on the cord to see if it will work and that the cord returns back into the recoil automatically. Don't take the nut off the inside of recoil holding the cord spool on. If the engine is not seized, and the recoil now goes in and out by pulling the start cord handle reassemble and pull over the engine a few times. This a good time to check the spark plug is working, now put the spark plug back in and start the engine. It's a good time to clean the air filter as well while the chainsaw is mostly apart and clean all oily sawdust off the chainsaw in the crevices etc..

Saw starter pulling too hard to start.


Check piston rings. Sounds like you have a seized engine.

Husqvarna 372xp won't start... Mysterious


I recently bought a brand new 372XP and spent the first day trying to start it as per the instruction manual with no success, never even fired once. Removed the plug to find plenty of fuel and that the plug has a good spark. Left it until the next day mainly to allow my arm to recover (& scour the internet for clues). I found a forum that said not to use the decompressor and sure enough without the use of the decompressor button it fired first go with the choke on then I reset the choke & it ran properly on the second pull. The decompressor button can be reset with fine nosed pliers or removal of the top cover by undoing three screws. Good luck it's a great saw once you know how to start it.

Homelite chain saw MODEL UT109460 will not start up I don't have a manuel and need help to figure out why it won't turn on at all.


Hello again Asher, I'm back. Let's just check a few things:
Gas may be old and stale, this happens when you don't use machine for a long while. Empty old and put in new. Cap should have measurement.
If this is a fuel/oil mixture machine, did you use straight gas? Not good if you did. This could damage your engine.
Do you have spark? If not did you move OFF to ON switch?
Did you put on choke and pull cord till engine almost starts?
If it does this did you then put choke to 1/2 choke?
If you get to this point and engine does start, let it warm shortly and put choke to open.
If still no start it is possible that you have a carburator problem, and need a rebuild. Please let me know how you made out, GOOD LUCK.

Ran out of gas put gas in wont start,pulled spark plug and put a little gas in ,it fired but wont stay running,the primmer bulb seems to be not working


Hate to tell you this but if you didn't mix oil with the gas properly (most likely a 40:1 ratio) then the chain saw will seize up and won't work again.

Husqvarna 455 chain saw will not start


Check to see if you have a spark pull the plug out plug the cap back on it hold it to the head and pull the cord see if it sparks It likely will most of the time with small engines its the carburator and what it needs is to be cleaned they sit around and get used once every couple of years especlly two stroke engines tund to get gumed up If you can take the carb apart clean it with carb or brake cleaner blow out the passages and clean the neddle valve you don;t to mess with the adjustments and put it back to gether it will work like new

After starting and operating the chainsaw for a short time, it dies and I can't get it started again. Suggestions?


Engines require 3 things. Spark, compression and fuel. And chainsaw need 2-cycle oil mixed with the gas.

Assuming you have the right oil-gas mixture and a fresh batch of gas, and you didn't leave old gas in the saw all summer long since last November.

-Take off the dirty air filter and see if saw starts without filter. Do not run without putting in new filter.
-Check exhaust port for mud dobber home or screen clogged with carbon and dirt
-See if saw fires up after squirting WD-40 directly into carburetor
-Check gas line >>> pull gas line loose and see if gas flows out of tank to carburetor
-Take out spark plug > put finger over spark hole and pull cord >> do you feel suction that says you got compression?
-Put spark wire back on spark plug >>> hold spark plug so threads touch bare metal part of spark plug hole >>> pull starter cord and see if spark shows between plug and saw >>> suggest you not hold metal part of spark plug while pulling cord [you'll understand why]
-If spark plug shows spark, then your saw has spark ... so put in new plug and start fresh.

If your saw has compression, spark, and fuel it should start unless carburetor is gummed up because gas was left in tank.
Here is the final trick. Start the saw while spraying WD-40 directly into carburetor and see if you can keep it going with the WD-40. This might take a helper. If this does not work, then carburetor is bad or gas line is clogged at carburetor. Time to take it to the shop.

Chain saw not turning over. i have the throttle lock on, choke on, new spark plug in it, and fuel primer activated but the saw still will not kick over


Can you give more info, do you mean that the pul cord does not actually rotate the engine, if this is so the engine is seized or the starter cord mechanism is faulty. If you mean it turns over but wont start and run then ascertain there is spark at the spark plug. Remove it reconnect to plug wire / earth plug / pull and see if spark is there. Should ne quite a yellow spark with some blue in it. Is the plug wet when you remove it?? If so have you used fresh petrol (< 2 weeks old)
