How do you get to the gas tank? The saw starts

How do you get to the gas tank? The saw starts when primed but will not stay on without tilting it to the sides. I have cleaned out the filters, screens and replaced the hoses.

In order to get to the gas tank you will need to pull the casings off of chainsaw. But I believe your problem is the fuel lines or the carburetor.

If the trimmer has fire, (spark) Then:

check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spraywith carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris.(Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals canbecome blocked. Reassemble and start.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

91 camaro ran out of gas and will not start now put six gallons of gas in it , and will start when it is primed but will not stay running does it take a while to pick up out of tank


Your fuel pump needs constant gasoline flow in order to stay lubricated.

People who often run their gas tanks to low levels force their fuel pumps to work harder, without the necessary oils in the gasoline to lubricate the bilge.

It sounds like you've burnt up your fuel pump.

Go to your local auto parts dealer and pick one up. You might want to consider also adding a fuel filter as well.

Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helps!

Pushing priming bulb repeatetly, unit will not prime and subsequently saw will not start.


Possible hoses split or cracked, fuel filter in the tank blocked, or an internal blockage in the carb screen under the pump cover.

Need to replace all gas lines


  1. Empty the fuel tank on the chainsaw of any remaining fuel. Pull the cap from the tank and turn the unit upside down. Drain the fuel into an approved fuel container. If the fuel is old (more than about a year) dispose of it according to local regulations for hazardous materials. (It can be kept longer by adding a fuel stabilizer.)
  2. Pull the fuel line where it attaches to the carburetor using the end of the needle-nose pliers. The old fuel line may take some force to pull free from the metal tube.
  3. Push on the fuel line to feed it into the fuel tank. Hold the chain saw upside down. Shake the unit to get the fuel filter into the opening of the tank. Pull the filter free of the tank. Feed the remaining fuel line through the access hole at the bottom of the tank. Dispose of the filter and old fuel line in accordance with disposal regulations.
  4. Feed one end of the new fuel line into and through the bottom access hole of the fuel tank. Push approximately 6 to 8 inches into the tank. You can pull back any excess line later. Grab the end of the plastic line with the needle-nose pliers. Bring the line through the gas tank fill opening.
  5. Attach the new filter to the end of the new fuel line. Feed the filter back into the fuel tank. Pull any excess line from the tank. You will want approximately 3 to 4 inches of fuel line inside the tank.
  6. Route the new fuel line to the carburetor. Cut the line to length with the cutters on the needle-nose pliers. Attach the line to the metal tube.
  7. Fill the fuel tank with fresh gas-oil fuel for 2-stroke engines and start the chainsaw. It may take a few pulls to prime the new line with fuel.
  8. Some models come with a priming bulb. Make sure you press the priming bulb three to four times before trying to start. This will prime the gas lines and remove any excess air trapped in the lines.

Chainsaw ran out of gas. Filled tank will not start now. Husqvarna 450 e=series 18"


Those saws are very finicky. First shake the saw very vigorously, as the saw running dry mayy have sucked dirt to the intake screen. Clean the plug and check gap. Prime, choke and pull till it starts. your plug may be foulled, this happens alot when a saw leans out from running out of fuel.

New 445 husqvarna chainsaw will not start


Drain the fuel tank, look inside the tank to ensure that the fuel line inside still has a fuel filter attached to it.
Look at the on/off switch ensure that both the wires are still attached to the switch securely.
Check that the plug still has spark, if unsure replace the plug.
Check the air filter to ensure that it is clean.
Mix the gas 50:1.

Saw runs good when you prime it cant get it to get gas from tank


Sounds like you have a plug between the tank and the carb. I would change the hose between the two and clean the tank as well as the carb.

Will not start not getting fuel to carb


Prime the carb and see if it starts for about 3 seconds. If you can manually get it to start, the problem is in the fuel line most likely the fuel pump that is in the gas tank. The fuel filters do not just plug up without notice but the fuel pump will go in a micro second. Here is a tip...........always always always keep a 1/4 tank of gas or more in the gas tank. The fuel pump inside the gas tank stays cool due to the fact that the gas cools it. This helps extend the life of electronic fuel pump.
