First of all add some fresh gas. chances are it may have leaked off or is gummed up..then remove you plug and with the wire attached have someone hold the spark plug firing end against the engine head an pull or if electric start spin the engine you should see spark between the gap or from the plug to the engine head..if you have spark cover the plug end with tape then spin the engine again tto clear the cylinders of old gas.. clean clean or replace the plug..before replacing get some starting fluid spay some in the plug hole and some on the plug and replace the plug..and try to start..from there you may want to spray a little in the carb...just be careful it is very explosive so easy on the spray...and keep clear if the carb area. May have some backfire....if this starts but won't keep running try it several times. If nothing your carb will need to be cleaned..good luck..

Saw will not start.

Check for spark by removing the plug, connect the plug wire, and lay the base on engine metal. Pull the starter through several times which should result in blue, snappy sparks. If weak or nothing, try a fresh plug (gapped 0.020"). If still nothing or weak, remove the left side cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Turn the flywheel til the magnets are under the module poles. Insert a thin business card into the pole gaps, loosen the module screws, and allow the module to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws and turn the flywheel somewhat to remove the card. Turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close up any further. Remove the ignition switch wire from the module body, then try for spark again. If ok, reconnect the ignition switch wire and try for spark again. If now get nothing, check the switch/wire for a grounding short. If you still get nothing after the above test, replace the module using the above procedure. If the first test produced good spark, pour a little fuel mix into the hole and try for start, If you get several pops, you have a fuel delivery problem--check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor is tight to the engine. Make sure to have fresh fuel mix in the tank. Hope some of this helps!

I have a PP3516 saw. Just stopped. Will not start. Changed plugs and fuel. Don't know if not geeting fuel or electrical problem.

Take the spark plug out, connect the wire, and lay the plug metal base on the cylinder head. Pull the starter through with the ignition on; the spark should be snappy and blue with a clean plug gapped at 0.020". If still nothing, remove the left side case to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Turn the flywheel until the magnets are under the module, insert a thin business card into the pole gaps, loosen the module mounting screws and let the module contact the magnets. Tighten the screws, and rotate the flywheel somewhat to enable removal of the card. Turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close up further. Remove the ignition switch wire from the body of the module, then try for spark again. If still nothing, replace the module. If you did originally get good spark, try pouring a little fuel mix into the plug hole and try for start. If it pops several times, check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check all fuel lines for decay or other damage. If still nothing, you may need to clean and re-kit the carburetor. Hope this helps!

Weedeater FLSST25 FeatherLite 17-Inch 25cc 2-Cycle Gas Powered Straight Shaft String Trimmer won't start

remove the air filter and introduce a little fuel into the intake, attempt to start it with a few pulls, if it pops off a little you have a few system issue, if nothing happens remove the spark plug and observe whether it is damp, oily, black, light gray or nice and clean, if damp, you got too much gas, try drying it out and have a go again this time without any choke. If dry and clean or light grey, not enough fuel. check the plug for spark, making sure the ignition is on, if no spark, you have likely got a coil or switch problem, if you pull the plug and it is wet, and totally gray or brown and it sparks, you may have internal engine issues.

Saw won't start

Remove the spark plug and check for a snappy, blue spark. If nothing or very weak, try another plug. If still nothing, remove the switch wire from the ignition module. If still nothing, replace the ignition module. Use a thin business card to set the gap and have the magnets under the module poles. You should have spark at this point. If still won't fire, but has spark, try spraying some starting fluid into the plug hole, install the plug, and try to start. If you get a couple of pops, then check the fuel lines, fuel filter, and make sure the screws are tight on the carburetor. If still won't run, you may need to clean and re-kit the carburetor. Make sure the air cleaner and muffler are not plugged. Hope some of this helps!

Hi there any help would be much help. Thanks 2005 klx It ran ok before I changed the oil and filter cleaned out the air filter and pulled air and idle crew for a blow out, after all that it won't start...

Is the spark plug too wet?
Probably theres too much fuel going into the combustion chamber, try to reduce the amount of fuel in the float chamber by first closing the petcock at the tank thn open up the fuel outlet screw at around the carburator float, just a little, close it up, remove the spark plug and clean it dry, refit it and try to start the engine..., adjust the idling screw a little inwards to increase the idling ..thn open up the petcock and observe the running of the engine ..if it starts to puut ..puut thn its for sure there is more fuel going in thn required may hve to adjust the float.
Not bad to check if the carburator at the intake mounting is fitted right wth no air going through inbetween the carb and the intake mounting.
Hope this helps!

I agree. you have oil where it shouldn't be. Remove spark plug and pull the rope a few times clean the plug and install it again.
