If fuel is making its way to the cylinder and the plug is wet then check the following
1) For clogged spark arrestor if fitted with one.
2) Compression - Needs to be at least 100 psi to ignite the fuel mix
3) Flywheel shear key - A sheared key will have the ignition timing too far off to start.

Try bypassing the switch by connecting the two wires together. If it starts then you know what the problem is.

Try squirting a little starting fluid into the carb and try to start. If it will try to run, you have a fuel problem. Try changing the fuel filter first.

Still chainsaw ms260z will not start


Try putting another new spark plug in it. If that does not work then turn air fuel mixture screw on the carb. all the way to the right then about one half turn counter clockwise and make sure the on/off switch is in the on position. If the saw has been sitting for awhile the carb. may have to be cleaned out. If still no response then take the saw inside and try to warm it to room temp. If still not starting spray a little bit of starter fluid in the intake or wd40. Then see if it will fire up.

Trouble shoot polan pro chainsaw


Use a cheap spark checker to check for spark. To check for fuel issue, squirt some carb cleaner down carb and see if it hits. If it does, you know you have spark and the problem is in the fuel supply.

FOLLOW this steps and fix it. Merry Christmas

Spark Plug

Every chainsaw relies on a spark plug to ignite the air-fuel mixture for proper combustion. Over time the electrode on the spark plug will burn away and the engine does not start. If the engine does not start, remove and inspect the spark plug. If there is any doubt that the plug is working properly replace it.

Carburetor

If the chainsaw won't start, the carburetor might be clogged or have bad fuel in the float bowl. If old fuel was left in the chainsaw for a long time some of the volatile ingredients may have evaporated, leaving a thicker, stickier product that is more like varnish or shellac. This sticky fuel can clog up the small jets and ports in the carburetor and it can be difficult to burn making it hard to start the engine. The only solution is to drain the old fuel from the float bowl and thoroughly clean the carburetor with carburetor cleaner. If that isn't effective, replace the entire carburetor.

On - Off Switch

Chainsaws are equipped with an on/off switch. If the chainsaw does not start, this switch might be defective. Check the switch for continuity. In the on position the switch should have continuity.

Safety Switch

If the chainsaw does no start, the safety switch - or throttle control switch - might be defective. If the switch isn't engaging with the throttle it won't provide enough fuel to the engine and the engine does not start.

Ignition Coil

If the chainsaw engine does not start the spark plug may not be getting voltage. Power to the spark plug is provided by the ignition coil. The ignition coil is mounted next to the flywheel. As the flywheel spins an electrical current is induced by the ignition coil. If the ignition coil is defective it will need to be replaced, it is not serviceable.

Rewind Spring

The recoil starter assembly has a rewind spring which spins the pulley backward to rewind the starter rope. If the rewind assembly is broken the rope will not rewind and the engine does not start.

Recoil Starter Pulley

I HAVE A POULAN 2150 CHAINSAW WITH A WALBRO WT 324 CARBURETOR. IT WILL CRANK WITH CHOKE ON BUT CUTS OFF SOON AS I PUSH CHOKE TO OFF POSITION


test the steps and fix it. God bless you

Spark Arrester

Inside the muffler of most chainsaws is a screen-like device called a spark arrestor. If the chainsaw stops after a few seconds or won't start at all, the spark arrestor might be clogged. The spark arrestor prevents small embers from being emitted by the engine to prevent fires. Over time the spark arrestor will become clogged with soot. Remove the spark arrestor and clean with a wire brush or replace.

If the chainsaw engine stops after a few seconds, the carburetor might be clogged or have bad fuel in the float bowl. If old fuel was left in the chainsaw for a long time some of the volatile ingredients may have evaporated, leaving a thicker, stickier product that is more like varnish or shellac. This sticky fuel can clog up the small jets and ports in the carburetor and it can be difficult to burn allowing the engine to only run for a few seconds. The only solution is to drain the old fuel from the float bowl and thoroughly clean the carburetor with carburetor cleaner. If that isn't effective, replace the entire carburetor.

Gas Cap

The gas cap on YOUR chainsaw is designed to let a very small amount of air into the tank. This is necessary because as fuel is consumed a vacuum is created in the fuel tank. The gas cap has a tiny vent to let air into the tank and equalize the pressure. If the gas cap vent gets clogged air can't enter the tank and eventually the vacuum pressure in the tank exceeds the vacuum pressure of the engine, and the engine stalls. The vent often cannot be cleaned because it is made of a semi porous ceramic material. If the gas cap vent is clogged, replace the cap.

Spark Plug

If the chainsaw starts and stops after a few seconds The spark plug may be defective. Although this is not very common it is easy to test. Try removing the spark plug and installing a new one.

My chainsaw will not start


You need to do some basic tests, start by draining the fuel tank and refill with fresh fuel oil, pull the fuel hose out of the tank and fit a new fuel filter, remove the spark plug and check to see if you have a spark, if you have a spark and the plug is soaked in fuel, leave the plug out and let the machine dry out for a few hours and try re starting with no choke.
