Won't start Chainsaw is a few yrs old, but brand new, never been used. I put fresh fuel and oil in it yesterday and tried to start it. It wouldn't kick. I checked the plug gap it was .025 like it's suspposed to be. The plug was wet so fuel is getting to it. Help!

Why will my saw not start, good spark new plug fresh gas


Sounds to me like a plugged up fuel line or old fuel in the fuel line. You may be able to clear it by spraying some starting fluid into the carb to pull the old fuel through. You only want to do this 2 times because this has no oil in it. Another suggestion it to remove the spark plug and put some of your fresh fuel mix directly into the chamber. About an eyedropper full should work.

Mikita dcs6401 chainsaw wont start


How old is ths fuel in the tank? If it is older than 2 months dump it and put in fresh fuel. Use some starting fluid sprayed into the carb and see if it fires on that. It may take a few sprays to pull the old fuel through the lines till the fresh fuel gets to the carb.

Use echo 2 stroke oil Do not use ethanol fuel, use a premium fuel and mix with the oil. Empty all the old fuel out of the saw, Fill with fresh fuel. Should solve the problem

Won stay running


Check carburetor & air filter. Clean off all dirt and clean air filter. check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old. Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Before putting in fresh fuel, press the primer several times. A small amount of gas might show up in the fuel tank. Remove fuel. With carburetor cleaner, spray carburetor. Put in small amount of fresh fuel. Just enough to cover the fuel filter. Then press primer with fuel cap off, and watch to see if fuel is flowing smoothly. If not or if plastic primer bubble does not come back to original shape after pressing, then you have to take carburetor apart and clean or get new carburetor.

HOMELITE 4618C CHAINSAW WON'T RUN


How long has the chainsaw been sitting? How long has it been sitting with the same gas in it? Typically, most chainsaw and weedtrimmer repairs are fuel related. More times than not, simply draining the old gas, and putting brand new fresh mixed fuel just purchased from the gas station will fix most non start problems. Many people will not believe me, but after 20 years of fixing small engines, i've fixed 70% of the chain saw and string trimmer and related sized engines by putting in new fuel. Fuel goes bad now a days in 30 days. So if the fuel in the gas can sitting in the garage is older than 30 days it is old when you are considering trying to use it in a small engine. Fuel in a car will not cause the same issues as quickly for several reasons. If the fuel in the gas can is older than 30 days get rid of it. If after changing the fuel out completely doesn't fix your problem, feel free to contact me and I'll see if I can help you out.

Primer button will not fill up


The primer bulb pulls fuel from the carb, into the bulb, and pushes it back to the tank. If the bulb does not fill there will be a number of reasons why, firstly if the saw is new, there will be oil in the carb from the starting prosess at the factory, the saw will start without fuel in the bulb, but will take many more pulls to get it going, once the saw starts and runs for a few minutes the oil in the carb will clear, and the bulb will fill normally when depressed, if your arm is not up to cranking the engine many times, remove the top cover, remove the air filter, dribble some fresh fuel/oil mix down the filter elbow, the saw will start after a few pulls. If the saw is a used machine the problem may well be a blocked fuel filter in the tank.

Respected Sir, I purchase a Husqvarna's chainsaw last week Model 236- 14". but I cant start it. I read manual carefully, every thing is OK. but Chainsaw can't start yet. So I request you,...


Checklist:

2-cycle oil mixed with FRESH gasoline
Spark plug wire pushed onto spark plug
Chain tight but you can still move it forward with your hand
Switch turned on
Pull the cord a few times, and then let it sit for a few minutes in case it's 'flooded' with fuel

If a new chain saw won't start, it probably has defective spark coil
Chain saws usually don't cause problems fresh out of the box, they stop working if people leave gasoline in the tank for a couple months each time.

Here's what I would do
Empty the tank of gas. Put fresh gas-n-oil into tank (not gas from an old can that was sitting there for a while)
Try starting again.
If no luck, then take it back and exchange for another.

Good luck sir.
