Question about Husqvarna K970 Ring Saw

1 Answer

Stops running when plunged into floor

I have a 16 inch K970. Runs great in the start position but as soon as you plunge into the floor it quits. Seems to be fuel related maybe the carb is not working when tilted. Tank has no vacuum on it when opened.

Always start with a fresh plug. Try to get non-ethanol gas. Check to see if the little weight and filter are still on the little hose in the gas tank.

SOURCE: My saw runs for 10 secs then stops, out of fuel.

On the bottom of a hose in the fuel tank. Did you replace or disconnect the fuel lines? I think improperly plumbed. It should be similar to this.

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You willneed to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Makesure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylightthrough it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

SOURCE: 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!

I think your on the right track
Blowing compressed air through your tank vent
is great but it is way more air than the natural asperation
that the saw pulls on it own
I would replace the vent cap and also look for a pinched fuel line between the fuel tank and the carb

SOURCE: Model 345 won't start. New

There is a vent in the tank, it is situated on the right hand side of the tank, close to where the fuel hose exits the tank, the early vent looks like a round white pellet, the later vent is a white plug with a nipple on the top, the later vent will just pull out with long nose pliers, the early vent has to be extracted useing a self tapping screw, this of course will destroy the vent.

My 12 year old plunge router 7529 does not start. It worked just fine a couple of days ago and all then sudden... nothing. Any suggestions!


A 1 year old router...that suddenly stops working. My suspicions would be brushes first then the switch.

There are 3 different types of this router Type 1, 2, and 3.

Parts can be found here:
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/porter-cable-7529-type-plunge-router-parts-c-129_1672_1985.html

Brush is item 3 and switch is item 4.

Starts, idles and runs but quits after a few seconds of cutting


Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. One screw adjusts the idle stop (idle speed) position and the H and L jet screws set fuel mixture for high speed and idle speed mixture respectively. Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly) then back each out CCW 1-1/2 turns. This is a basic setting and should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H CW until the engine starts to speed up, but 4-strokes. Correct adjustment is when the engine 4--strokes running free, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW until the engine idles fairly well, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust the idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to run. Hope this helps!

It plunges down to zero at times then reads eratic


Your oil becomes too fluid as the engine gets warmer. When the engine rotates slower at stops, the oil pump won't make pressure. At speeds, more oil is pumped and the pressure rises.
Have you recently changed your oil? Or maybe is too old. The real problem would be if you read zero at normal cruising revolutions.

I just received a 693 plunge router via internet order. As soon as i took out the plunge part out of the case and moved the lever it pupped up and now will not move up or down > Is there something I am...


The plunge base is spring loaded. When you move the lever is springs to the up position. To lower it place the base on a flat surface, press and hold the lever down and push down on the handles. The router bit height should be set on the depth rod with the base in the down position. Then release it to the up position. When you have positioned the bit where you want it on the work piece, press the lever and "plunge" the bit down into the workpiece. The depth rod setting will stop the bit at the depth you set it for.

Cannot remove the fixed base


Are you sure the lock nuts haven't loosened and worked their way down the threaded rod to tighten the router down into it's plunged position? That's a really common thing to happen with plunge routers, but without a model number I can't give you any certain advice.
Try breaking those two nuts loose and spinning them back up the stud and see if that doesn't do it.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

The plunge lock "slips" when the router is used in a table


You can try to adjust the lever that moves the plunge and see if that helps, but a plunge router isn't made for upside use. If you have the option and use the router upside down often, you may want to get a fixed base.
