Question about Husqvarna "Chain Saw - 16" Bar, 3 Hp

3 Answers

Husqvarna 55 chainsaw won't stay running.

I have a Husky 55 chainsaw, and when I have the choke all the way out, it will fire and run for about 5 seconds or so. Then when I put the choke 1/2 out, it will fire, rev real high for about 1-2 seconds and then die. I have changed the fuel filter, and plug and cleaned the air filter. Any ideas?

It has a crack in the fuel line between the body and the tank. The crack lets air in the line. Replace the line.

Run it with the choke on, if you see air bubbles int he fuel line going to the carb replace ALL of the lines, if not the crank seals may be worn out or the crankcase seal may be leaking.

2. squeeze throttle trigger fully in.
3. slide on switch fully down to 'full choke' position. 'it should stay there'.
4. Pull saw over until it fires once.
5. click 'on' switch up one position to 'half choke'

You must have dirt in one or more of the carb jets. Remove the carb and clean it with carb cleaner spray and compressed air (compressed air is a must).

Pull starter cord until it starts. When it starts it wii be at full R.P.Ms. Let run for twenty to thirty seconds. then move switch to run. Hope his helps, Thanks

The symptoms indicate lean running, so check the fuel filter for plugging and the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Husky seems be having troubles with our ethanol treated fuel and may require some warranty attention. We have a year old 435 Husky that would not start after about 3 days of excellent running--warranty replaced the carburetor which seems to have us working well now. Good luck!

Husqvarna 235e will not stay running


Take the saw back for warranty service. We have a Husky #435 that had starting problems when new last year--warranty service replaced the ignition module the first trip, then a little later, they replaced the carburetor--it has worked very well since. I suspect that Husqvarna has had problems with our ethanol blended fuels. Hope this helps!

Starts hard floods easily even avoiding the primer


Prime away... on a chainsaw it does NOT squirt fuel into carburetor. It draws fuel from tank, through carburetor, and returns it to tank.
Using the choke however will flood it in a second once it has fired. with a good fuel supply, 99.5 % of chainsaw won't start problems are flooded.
Your manual start procedure should be similar to this:
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)
The real key on your Husky is to open the choke once it attempts to fire. Closing the choke sets the fast idle but leaving it closed only floods the engine once warmed up or after it attempts to start. True of Stihl too but slightly different start procedure.
If you can not find your manual you can download one here:
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 – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
Hope you found this helpful.

Husky viprating on tick over and now wont start


I think you are saying it sputters but won't run. Once it attempts to fire open the choke or it may flood. My 359 start:
Cold: pull out choke control, pull starter (usually twice) while listening for attempt to start. Once it fires push choke control in and
continue pulling (usually once more).
Warm: pull out choke control (sets fast idle), push choke control in, pull starter.
Page 19 of my manual.

Once flooded these are a bear to start.
