Check the position of the safety lever /clutch as there may be a micro switch that will not allow it to start with the chain engaged

How to start ozito petrol chainsaw


1.fill with bar oil an 2stroke petrol

2.put the chainbrake on

3.if there is a primer bubble 5-10 pushs might say next to bubble



4.IF YOUV\'E NEVER STARTED A CHAINSAW PUT IT UPRIGHT ON FLAT GROUND and put you right foot as far in the trigger handle as you can, put enough weight to stop the bar or chain touching dirt, dirt will blunten a chain very quickly



5.grab the top bar with left hand firmly



6.pull out or raise the choke the whole way.

7.switch on the on/off switch



8.make sure your as much weight on your hand an foot holding the saw and pull the cord fast but never the whole way out or else it will snap over time and when it cant come out anymore it will jerk the chainsaw which can make the bar hit dirt and your chain will get blunt!!! or your leg but that wont blunten the saw



9.keep pulling the cord until you hear the engine fire,

Probably 3-5 descent pulls, it just revs a little loader and longer.

when it fires push the choke back in the whole way



10.pull the cord a few more times and it will start up dont pull the trigger till youv\'e taken the chainbrake off, or youll burn out the clutch. dont forget dont let the chain touch dirt a blunt chain makes cutting really hard on you and the saw.



If you know how its worth stopping and sharpening it as soon begins to lose its edge your back will love you for it, and you get more wood cut. But if you dont sharpen evenly and at the right angles it can be as bad as hitting dirt because it wont cut straight and get stuck

Cant put chain bar back on my poulan chainsaw


Deborah there is a tensioning screw on the side assembly that will need reducing back. This should allow the bar and brake assembly to go back on

Tryed to put on a chain cant get it back togather right


Completely loosen the chain tensioner. When looking at the saw from the sprocket side(bar to the right) the chain WILL travel clockwise. Fit the chain on the bar.(ensure that the chain travels in collation with the sprocket at the end of the bar if equipped). When looking at the saw from the sprocket side(bar to the right) the chain WILL travel clockwise. With the chain still in the bar, fit the 5 or so links in the sprocket on the powerhead, engage the bar with the bar nuts, then lastly engage the chain in the tensioner. Place the sprocket cover and nuts. Tighten nuts then loosen about .5 turn. Adjust chain tensioner. Retighten nuts. See that tightening the nuts made your chain tighter, loosen nuts readjust chain, tighten nuts. With gloves on and the chain brake disengaged please ensure the chain travels around the bar. Put on your chaps and start cutting.

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.

Chain wont turn when running


Check the tensioner screw, it could be too tight. Loosen the slack and the chain should move. And of course do this while its off.
