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.

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.

2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:

My Poulan Pro 260 chainsaw will start and run when the choke is pulled out, but as soon as I disengage the choke, the saw dies. Do I need to have the carbuerator checked?


It is running in a lean condition. Continued operation like that can cause piston and cylinder failure.
I'd take it in for repair estimate ($10) at the local chainsaw seller/mechanic. Explain the problem you are having, Probably a leaking fuel line. I'd expect a repair and tune up about $40-60. Your saw will perform better and your arm will thank you. If tuned ask what fuel/oil ratio they used (should be 50:1) and affix a label to your fuel tank. HTH

Poulan Pro 220 saw starts & runs fine when finger on throttle, will not stay at idle. Rplaced plug & same issues.


All you need to do is try to adjust the throttle idle speed or else a cheat would be to tighten the cable which means the cable will be pulling very slightly the throttle which means it will remain running when u release throttle.

Stihl weed eater runs 2min. then stop


Stihl weedeater was running and stopped suddenly. Put in a new fuel filter and cleaner air filter with soap and water. Checked spark plug and it appeared fine. Started the weedeater, ran for a second or so and stopped. Spark plug wasn't gas fouled. Could it be the carburetor needing new diaphram gasket and spring.
