I had to change body chassis on husqvarna 240 chain saw, put back together and started once, then died,now won't start and gas comes out muffler. What did I do wrong


The unit is definitely seriously flooded. Dry the unit out and try to restart. Do not pull the starter rope more than 3-4 times with unit on choke. Kick it back to fast idle to start. If it floods again, recheck your fuel lines to make sure they are correct.

Flooding petrol


Saw is getting flooded? Does the saw run? After a few pulls with the choke on the saw should fire, Open the choke and in a couple of pulls the saw should start. If you have flooded thee saw you can hold it on the ground with your knee, hold full throttle and in up to ten pulls it should go with a slow start and some smoke, give it rev and away you go. Hope this helps

I have a husqvarna 450 that won't stay running and has oil coming out the excaust


It sounds well flooded, remove the spark plug, with the kill switch to off, crank the engine five or six times to evacuate any excess fuel in the cylinder, leave the machine for an hour or so, re fit the plug and attempt starting with no choke.

How do you start a husqvarna 137 e series chain saw


Hello Sally;
A link to an OM for a Husqvarna 2005 137 (no e listed, the procedure is the same) can be found here:
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2005/HOUS2005_O0501001.pdf
The start procedure begins on page 9.
The part that says once it attempts to start open the choke is often overlooked and they flood.
This is the only 137 listed, normally there are many to choose from. If you need additional help Husqvarna can be contacted here:
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/customer-support/)

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Can't restart my new husqvarna 450 chain saw after a little bit of time using it. i followed the instruction manual both times.


The manual may not be clear, read warm line 3 below, read it again. The 450 manual I read says something similar under warm start. Are you opening the choke after turning on the ignition? Before pulling the starter rope? Flooding is the most common hard start problem with 2-cycle engines. If you are opening the choke I recommend you contact Husqvarna for guidance. They will likely send you to a neighborhood dealer, gratis.

Start Procedure
Cold:

  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4).
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).

Have plenty of compresssion , are getting fire , seems to be gettin g fuel but still will not start - 570 husqvarna


If as you say it has good compression, spark, and fuel, yet will not start, it is most likely flooded.
Model 570 IPL (may not be your saw)
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/USA/2009/I09000/I0901006.pdf
Detail G (Muffler) clean Item 3 and try once more.
Remove the plug (wet?). Install a new plug (very inexpensive).
Download your manual and follow the start procedure exactly.
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – for use with IPL/Manual
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

My 359 floods in a nano second if I leave the choke engaged once it attempts to start. The only other time it really gave me trouble was one time I failed to set then turn off the choke when it was warm. Setting the choke also sets the fast idle on my saw. Once it has fired pulling the starter with choke on floods it.

If it still does not at least try to start, remove and clean the air filter. Put about a teaspoon of fuel mix in the carburetor throat, reinstall the clean air filter, turn on the ignition, close then open the choke, set the fast idle (if equipped), and try to start it. Did it sputter? If it sputters, attempts to run and quits it probably has a fuel delivery problem.

At this point I think it time to contact a local chainsaw seller mechanic (I use Stihl). For about a tune up/repair estimate. $40 - 60 depending on parts required. If tuned by local shop when you pick it up ask what fuel/oil mix they used (should be 50:1) and use that mix until the next time it needs service (I suggest you affix a self adhering tag near the fuel cap).

Brand new husqvarna chainsaw won't start


A commen problem is flooding the engine.
A good way to start it is to press the fuel pump balloon three times choke it. pull once...pust the choke back in so that its stops choking and give it a few swings then it should start.
i am asuming you have put the on of switch to on.
