Re: low water light is on,
Hi If you lift the water tank out, check to see if there is a magnet in it. It looks like a grey rectangular plastic tube with a flat top and round bottom. It goes in a slot in the water tank. There should be a clear cap that covers it when in the tank. If it comes out the machine will not work.

Its probably still in the descale mode because it has not finished the program The machine must stop on its own. The lights will change. then rinse the tank and fill with fresh water and close then open the knob as befopre with a container that will hold a full tank of water and let the pump again stop on iits owm. The refill the tank, close, then open the knob again until the red lights goes out and it will start to work again.
The line at the rear of the fuel tank with the fuel filter is the main feed line to the carburetor and connects to the upper nipple. The lower nipple on the carburetor goes to one of the primer ports, and the other primer port goes back to the tank, which has no filter on the tank end. On the primer port, it is cut and try--remove the tank return connection and leave loose. Place the main fuel line on to one of the primer ports and try to pump fuel into it with several pumps.Make sure the filter in the tank is not plugged. If nothing, shift the line to the other port of the primer and try pumping again. When successful, remove the main fuel line and return it to the upper carburetor port. Run a new line from the lower carburetor port to the active primer port and try to pump fuel again. If it won't pump fuel, reverse the two connections at the carburetor and try to pump again. If still nothing, there is trouble within the carburetor which should be cleaned with spray carburetor cleaner and maybe re-kitted. When you can finally pump fuel through the carburetor, then attach the tank return line to the open port on the primer bulb. Hope fully, the engine should run at this point. Hope this helps!
Hook the line that comes from the rear of the tank (and has a fuel filter on it inside the tank) directly to the open port on the primer bulb, remove the other line that goes back into the tank and let hang loose. Pump the primer bulb a few times which should pull fuel into it. If not, change the fuel line to the other port on the primer and try pumping again. If nothing with either connection, either the primer pump is defective, or the fuel filter in the tank is plugged. Remove the fuel line from the primer and connect to the metal nipple on the carburetor. Then place a new line from the pumping port on the primer to the plastic nipple on the carburetor. Try to pump fuel through the carburetor--if it won't pump, reverse the two connections on the carburetor and try the pump again. If it still won't pump, then something is stuck inside the carburetor. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetors for theory and troubleshooting information. Most carburetors used on saws use a similar construction and the information applies. If you need parts, go to: www.Searspartsdirect.com and enter the complete model number minus the decimal point. This will take you to a series of drawings that list all replaceable parts. Hope this helps out!
Check the condition of the primer bulb for hardness or cracking. If ok, remove the line that goes from the bulb back into the tank and try to pump fuel from the carburetor. If nothing, switch the position of the other line at the back of the primer and try to draw fuel again. If hooked correctly, the primer will pull fuel through the carburetor body filling all cavities and into the primer bulb. If still nothing, try switching the lines at the carburetor (it should not pump backwards through the check valves in the pumper chamber). If still nothing, switch the primer connection again. Some combination of line connections should allow fuel to be pumped through. When correct, reconnect the loose primer line to allow fuel to return to the tank. This is a good reason for replacing only one line at a time. Hope this helps!
You are right, there is no flange.Under the tank reservoir there is a switch (micro) if you lift the reservoir up you should hear the switch click on and off,.Sometimes the switch will hang up and stop the pump from coming on.Try that and let me know.
The pump could be out or it could just need primed.
Saeco sells a cheap hand pump that you insert into the receiver and force water into the system while the pump is pumping. This will often prime the pump and get things going.
Call 1 800 933 7876 and tell one of the customer service reps you need a priming pump.
