SOURCE: 455 Husqvarna chainsaw will not run

pull the muffler off and look for scoring on the piston,the 455 had a problem with running lean from factory and burned up a lot of pistons and cylinders

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: Husqvarna 40 Chainsaw won't start

The carb uses the pulses from the crankcase to actuate a diaphram in the carb as the fuel pump.If you strip the carb make sure there are no perforations/cracks etc. on these diaphrams and check too that the valve flaps are OK.if not fit a carb kit.

Also check that the pipe or channel from the carb to crankcase is OK.

If all this is correct you can simply put your hand behind the carb or inlet to check for vacuum if not there you have probably blown a crank seal(but unlikely)and you will have to replace them.

Hope this helps,and please come back if you need any further assistance.

Why chain saw will not start


1) Check if it fire! If not! change spark plug!
2) Fill fuel tank, Pull spark plug ou, turn upside down chainsaw, if fuel drip from the cynlinder than you need to change carb gasket.
3) check if the bubble primer is not puncture. If so need to remplace it!
4) Clean the gunk!

My Homelite chainsaw is hard to start and stops running after 5 to 10 seconds.


Could be the filter in the tank or the cap. The tank needs to be vented to allow fuel past the filter.

No gas to spark plug on atv


carb float/needle sticking opening the carb drain will provide evidence if fuel is reaching fuel bowl, if fuel is present then i would suspect the carb is gummed up and it will need to be cleaned ( all jets/passages ) another area could be that the gas cap vent/line is plugged not allowing fuel to flow by gravity feed.

Bloody thing won't start. Changed spark plug, drained fuel, used fresh fuel. Driving me mad - chucking it out seems the next step


hello sir, my machine will only start when pumping primmer bulb or squirting fluid in the carburetor than stops. the fuel line has broken off, in most small carburetors this is a ongoing problem.old fuel will crystallize when left in tank for a long time.plugging up ports, fuel lines, small screen in carburetor.fuel lines will dissolve clogging carb.this is why it will run when the choke is on creating a vacuum to where there is fuel forced in the carb to rum,also the gas will evaporate leaving the oil behind clogging up carb.the thing to do is remove carb. and clean out,replacing gaskets or fuel line if necessary.use carb cleaner to clean out carb.make sure to make note where fuel line go.the fuel filter broke off of fuel line letting debris get in carb plugging it up.the muffler is known to clog up a lot on these machines where they want run. the compression should be 60 to 120 lbs any thing below 60 is junk. when adjusting the carb screws turn in all the way than turnout 1 1/4 turns turn in slow until machine runs also you need to check for spark by removing plug and grounding against engine to check spark, ok.a new spark plug would be a good ideal too , if you are going to make these repairs use new fuel line and filter,hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you, ff

If the plug is soaked, then the needle in the carb is most probably leaking, you need to do a pressure test on the carb to prove this, if you do not have a pressure tester it will be a case of replacing the needle and hope for the best, make sure the gasket goes on before the diaphram, it acts as a spacer.

It is a fuel issue. Pull the fuel line off the carb and make sure fuel is getting into carb and that the fuel is good. If verified that good fuel is getting to carb then rebuild carb.
