Check to see if you are getting spark. If you are getting spark then it is not getting fuel. Try sparying starter fliud in the carb. If is starts then stops. Take the fuel line off to see if something is obstructing the line. Also the fuel filter can be changed.
If you are not getting spark with the spark plu relace the plug. Also to check the spark, remove the plug and put a screw driver in the plug wire and ground the screwdriver. a spark should come off the screwdriver

Chainsaw rattles when it stops


personally too much hassle prefer Stihl Chainsaw more reliable Seizing is caused by lack of lubrication, First check all level has oil pump seized or is it sump type when running oil circulates all way round, Still there has to be a oil reservoir if this is bone dry theres your problem the rattling is metal on metal with no protection and the damage is seizing caused by lack of oil I have two chainsaws both have oil sumps and are kept full, please check hope this helps

How do i set air on husky 435 saw to fix boggy runnin


Mitch:

Adjust the fuel and air mixture screws while the saw is running... you'll find that "sweet spot"... it just takes a little patience! Small adjustments... If you over adjust and the saw quits running or starting, GENTLY turn both screws in all the way (don't damage the needle valves or seats) and turn both out one and a quarter (1 1/4) turns out. The saw should start, then adjust from there.

My saw is two weeks old it uses 3 tanks of bar&chain oil to 1 tank of gas is there a adjustment for setting?


Take the bar and chain off and clean both thourghly. Use a small blade screwdriver to scrape built up saw dust,dirt woodchips or whatever from bar track and make sure both are in good shape. The oil port should be located by bar alignment pin.Brush it clean and if you have access to compressed air then blow out to help clear port. Turn your saw upside down and locate screw that has directional arrow to + or - to add or subtract amount of oil flow.
I would start and run saw with bar and chain installed and properly tensioned. Let saw warm up then hold saw about one inch above clean piece of wood and run at full throttle for 30 seconds.There should be a light coating of oil on board. If you have too much oil then turn screw in direction on - until you get it set where you want it. There should be a light coating of oil on chain and bar at all times.
I mostly use stihl saws and run about 1 1/2 tanks of gas per tank of oil and this works great for me. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

My saw runs a few minutes then gets hot and wont start


What is the ratio of the oil/gas mix?
Sounds like it is not getting sufficient lubrication.

Add 1/2 oz (about 1/2 shot glass) of 2-cycle oil to the gas tank and try again......

Check to be sure that you have LOTS of chain oil in the chain oil tank!!

Poulan 18' model 2000 chain saw, quit running , will not start.


If you have a compression gauge, check the compression. Anything under 90psi is too low.

Check your flywheel key. If it is broken the flywheel will move and not fire at the correct time.

Note: if it does not sputter with carb cleaner then it's not your carb.

Next:
Remove your exhaust manifold. Look into the cylinder with a flash light. You are looking for scratches. Anything larger then a light fingernail is definite proof you need a new cylinder/piston assy.

If it passes that test do the following:

Pour mixed fuel straight into your cylinder until 1/4 full. Slowly pull your saw over while looking into the cylinder. If you see bubbles after the ring/rings go by then you need a new cylinder/piston assy. On rare occasions if no scratches are present on the cylinder wall or piston, you may be able to change just the rings.

Ryobi 40cc chain saw oiler not working correctly


Hi
Check and clean the oil filter from oil tank.Check the worm gear wich engages with the oil piston pump(under the clutch).Near the hole where the oil comes out from oil tank there is an oil tank valve(see if it is clogged),it equalises the presure between interior and exterior of the oil tank.

Chain saw emitted sparks and now does not start.


Hi

When the engine get warm and die(I suppose)check the spark at the sparkplug.You can let the saw run until it ran out of gas and you will not distroy the engine.Change the sparkplug.
