Chainsaw starts wont idle

I have an older Husqvarna 41 saw I can get it to start but it only idles for about 5-10 seconds. I then need to wait 30-40 seconds for it to start again. it has new fuel line and filter and I've cleaned the carb. If I hit the throttle it dies instantly

When you cleaned the carb did you put a new kit in? Did you blow out the passageways? Sounds like a bad diaphram...

Were you able to get the saw running again?

The symptoms described sound like a clogged tank vent. I'm not proficient with Husqvarnas, but I have seen four Poulan saws over the last two years (I'm not a fan of repairing low-end equipment since something else seems to wear out later), and ALL of them suffered from this issue. The tank vent on their units is inferior, and it constantly clogs from the wood chips that get near it.
Modern fuel systems for handheld equipment have a check valve somewhere to keep gas and vapors from escaping when the temperature rises. It must allow air to enter when a slight vacuum is applied (carburetor drawing fuel). When foreign matter obstructs the valve, the unit runs lean and stalls - especially when throttled. Many of these valves are located in fuel filler caps, and they can be disassembled for inspection and cleaning. If there is a soft component that looks like a duck's beak in the cap, it can sometimes be cleaned to fix the issue. In other cases the duckbill valve or entire cap need to be replaced.

Conected to the rubber induction boot is the impulse hose, it is a short curled pipe, make sure this has not split and is conected to the two nipples on the carb flange.

Carb adjustmwnt requires a special tool and a tacho, the saw is set from the factory for the best emmisions, however it may need a small adjustment, this should be done by a qualified dealer, incorrect adjustments can damage the engine.

Its not an idle screw adjustment issue, it is a mixture screw adjustment issue, unfortunatly there is a special tool to adjust the mixture screws, pt no. 530035560 ( available from Hysqvarna dealers ) once you have this tool you can make an adjustment to the L screw on the carb, undo ( anti clock wise ) this screw ten minutes on a clock face ,this will richen the muxture, and should make it more stable on idle.

Want start


Read the warm start procedure from the operators manual.
1. Pull choke (sets fast idle)
2. Push in choke (fast idle retained)
3. Make sure ignition is on, pull (usually once on my saw)
4. Advance throttle slightly to release fast idle.
I made the mistake ONCE of not setting the fast idle. My shoulder gets sore thinking about it. HTH

Can't set carb. on Husqvarna chainsaw.


Most chainsaws and small engines are 1.5 turns out.

You need to set the mixtures for the carburetor. You will find a Low and High adjustment screw. At idle turn the screw in or clockwise until the rps starts to decrease. Then start turning it out till you hit max idle rpms. Turn screw back in a quarter to half turn and it should be idling smoothly. Be careful here and get someone to hold saw if necessary but hold in throttle to full speed and do the same with high adjustment screw. turn it in till rpm starts to drop then back it out until you get to max rpm and it won't go any higher then turn it back in a half a turn.

There are two idle screws one high, and one low. Your high adjustment idle screw needs to be adjusted.
