There is two wires from the ignition unit, an earth cut out and an earth return, by pulling both wires away from the ignition unit will diss connect the switch completely, crank the engine at normal start speed to check for a spark.

SOURCE: I have an 18'' Poulan chain saw that won't start.

Take the wire of the spark plug,and see if it shocks you when the cord is pulled.If not there may be something wrong with your coil.(loose wire for example)If it does shock you,you may want to check out your piston rings,or the little air/fuel mixture valve between your carburetor,and cylinder.

Hi dortfran,
My name is Dennis and I hope to be of assistance.
This sounds like a kink in the chain and I would try a new chain because this can be a very small kink and very difficult to find and straighten out. If you must put the chain saw in a vise by clamping the bar and run the chain back and forth from the sprocket to the bar grove under operating tension and locate the misalignment at the bargrove. Now you have located the problem but the fix is still sweat away, and with some luck you may be able to spring the chain straight and have the link flexable to opporate without a hitch.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution because i can learn from your rating.
Thank you
Dennis

SOURCE: Ryobi 18" petrol chainsaw won't start

my guess is that you have a crack or a hole in one of your fuel lines. this is very common in chainsaws and weed eaters because they are used very little and sit for a long time. try checking this and repair if necessary. let me know if this works.

SOURCE: poulan saw wont start has spark and fuel

Look for a pinched/bare stop-switch wire (I assume that you don't have spark now). Also, check the ignition coil core gap to the flywheel magnets (I use card stock to set the gap). Make sure the plug wire was not damaged again.

I think you are asking for gap between the fly wheel and the ignition module. A business or index card works great. 0.1 - 0.3 mm. GL

What is the gap setting between the ignition module and the flywheel? What is the spark plug gap?


Unsure about your first question as I have had no problems with the ignition module or flywheel as of yet. However the spark plug gap is 0.025 inch

How to tune a sears chain saw that won;t stay running


Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. If no help, remove the flywheel cover and reset the ignition module pole clearance using a thin business card for a gauge. Turn the flywheel magnets under the module, insert the card into the gaps, loosen the module screws, and allow the module to contact the magnets through the card. Tighten the screws and rotate the flywheel somewhat to release the card, then turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gap doesn't close further. Try for spark at the plug--it should be blue, and snappy with a fresh plug gapped at 0.020". Hope some of this helps!

Poulan 295 model chainsaw/ won't start, no spark


Start first with a fresh spark plug set at 0.020" gap. Make sure ignition switch is on. If still nothing, remove the cover from the flywheel. Set the ignition module gap by using a thin business card between the module poles and the flywheel magnets. Loosen the mounting screws, let the module contact the magnets, and re-tighten the screws. Turn the flywheel to remove the card, then rotate the flywheel on full turn checking that the gap doesn't close-up any further. Check for spark again--if still nothing, remove the ignition switch wire from the ignition module. Check for spark--if spark now occurs, check the condition of the ignition switch or the connecting wire may be grounding out somewhere in between. If still nothing, replace the ignition module. Hope this helps!

ZR10926 16 Chain Saw: chain saw not working...


Remove the spark plug, lay the base on engine metal, and test for spark which should be blue and snappy. If nothing, try a new plug and retest. If still nothing, remove the left engine cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Check the module pole gap by using a thin business card for a gauge--turn the flywheel magnets under the module while holding the gauge in place, loosen the module screws and allow the module to snap to the magnets. Tighten the screws again and rotate the flywheel while turning the card to get it free. Turn the flywheel one turn to check that the gap doesn't get closer at any time. Recheck for spark. If still nothing, remove the grounding wire that goes to the ignition switch from the module and retry again. If still nothing, replace the ignition module. If you got spark in the first test, squirt some fuel into the plug hole and attempt start--if you get a few pops, concentrate on the fuel system. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines and primer button (if equipped). Make sure the carburetor is tight to the engine and all fasteners are tight. Hope this helps!

Doesn't want to start. Replace carb and ran for few seconds, Make you think that it is not getting gas, but pouring gas into spark plug does not help and drying spark plug dose not help. Spark appears...


The spark should be blue and snappy. Try a new plug--any help? If not, it may need a new ignition module. Check the flywheel magnets--they should be quite strong. The module gap with the magnets underneath the poles should be about business card thickness. Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Hope this gets it running!

I Have a poulan brand chain saw that the bar oiler is not oiling.Resivor is full of bar oil but it still wont oil the chain or bar.The model is Poulan Pro 220 with a 16 inch bar.Any help would be...


Oil System Plugged:
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL).

An example of a Poulan “PP220 Gas Chain Saw Type 5” IPL follows (may not be your saw):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP220-Gas-Chain-Saw-Type-5/75.PP220-Gas-Chain-Saw-Type-5.1.59.1.html

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system and is sketchy at best. Oiler components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly.

It has an outboard clutch use this and the IPL as a guide for removal. R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch by Drivelink.blogspot.com
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdqkIuVNUQc

  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).

If your saw is not a Type 7 an IPL for all Poulan chainsaws can be found here:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
The dash number of your serial number is the type.
