Chain saw won't start

Chain saw ran fine one day, would not start the next. I replaced gasoline with fresh, replaced the spark plug, verified that there is spark. But no start, even with ether.

I would suggest the piston has scuffed, remove the muffler and look at the exhaust face of the piston through the open exhaust port, any signs of scuffing or damage and you will need to remove the cylinder to assess the amount of damge.

My o34 Stihl chain saw ran good one day the next day won’t start I rebuilt cab got fire no start I tried starting fluid in plug still no pop to try to start saw is 34 years old well maintained


Have you checked the compression on the cyl. A saw that old may have lost compression and also have you checked the muffler to be sure it is not plugged. I base this on you saying you have fire to the plug.

Husqvarna 372xp won't start... Mysterious


I recently bought a brand new 372XP and spent the first day trying to start it as per the instruction manual with no success, never even fired once. Removed the plug to find plenty of fuel and that the plug has a good spark. Left it until the next day mainly to allow my arm to recover (& scour the internet for clues). I found a forum that said not to use the decompressor and sure enough without the use of the decompressor button it fired first go with the choke on then I reset the choke & it ran properly on the second pull. The decompressor button can be reset with fine nosed pliers or removal of the top cover by undoing three screws. Good luck it's a great saw once you know how to start it.

If you have a good spark, and there is fuel at the plug, the only things to stop it fireing up are a sheared flywheel key knocking the timeing out, or the engine has low compression due to wear or damaged piston and ring.

I have a wild thing. the rope pull starter is very hard to pull. when i take the spark plug out it is easy to pull. the saw was not used for about 4 years until yesterday. it ran for about 45 minutes fine....


one piston ring has expanded now having no or a very fine gap increasing the compression ratio causing this to happen. When the spark plug is removed it is very easy to pull on the cord in any means. A inspection is due of this engine or a new chain saw is needed

Chain saw won't start


Things to check,drain and re fill with fresh fuel/oil mix, replace the fuel filter in the fuel tank, remove the spark plug, rest on top of the cylinder and check for a spark, if this is all ok remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston through the exhaust port, any signs of damage and the saw will have to come apart for further investigation.

One thing to check is your oil/gasoline mixture. If the gasoline that you used is alcohol enhanced then if you let it sit for a period of time the alcohol evaporates and the mixture changes to more oil than gasoline mixture which makes the exhaust smoke a lot and possibly coats the plug more. Also, regular gasoline that sits in the tank for a long period of time does the same thing.

If your mixture is not at the recommended level,16/1, 40/1 or 60/1 whatever, then the oil will foul the exhaust ports on the saw and back pressure will cause the saw hard to start.

Recommended: take the muffler off of the machine and clean the exhaust ports as much as possible, scraping the built up carbon off. clean the gas tank out removing all of the mixture. Refill the tank with fresh correct mixture. Remove the spark plug and clean or replace being sure that the plug is gapped correctly.

Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the chain is being oiled and that you can turn the chain by hand. Be sure to have fresh fuel mix and be sure to shake the container thoroughly before each tank fill to prevent oil starvation. Hope this helps!

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.
