1 Answer

Won't start We bought a husky 235 yesterday and it doesn't even seem like it wants to start. i pulled the plug theres a bunch of **** on top of the piston and on the plug that looks like a coating thats come off something. its got spark, fresh mixed gas and good compression idk why the hell it won't start. i've tried starting fluid (usually don't use it on things) and dipping the plug in gas, nothing. thinking about taking it back if it wont start this afternoon.

Only thing left would be the timing of the spark. inspect rotor, key may have broke and spun on shaft.

Won t crank


Sounds like it will crank but just won't start. Almost always a carburetor adjustment if your gasoline is not deteriorated (old).
Pull the spark plug and prime the cylinder with a teaspoon of gas. Try again. If it fires in a few pulls and then won't fire on the next few, your carburetor isn't supplying enough or any gasoline.

Won,t start after sitting for a short time, but will start fine when cold


Does it crank, yet not start? Or does it not even crank?
If it cranks and doesn't start, you could have a leaky fuel injector. Pull the plugs when this happens, and check them for fuel saturation.

If it doesn't even crank, it could be an intermittent starter.

I HAVE A 235 APPROX 1 YR OLD.GOOD PLUG FIRE--GETTING FUEL--STRONG COMPRESSION,IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD OF 120 LBS. YET IT WILLNOT EVEN MAKE A OFFER TO START. MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER TO POUR FUEL OVER THE...


The 235 in my opinion was not a good saw, there were numerous issues with it, the mai bearing on the drive has a habbit of the bearing cage breaking away, this travels up the side of the pistion and nips the ring in on the transpher port side, they then refuse to start or rattle badlt if they do start, the only cure is to strip the whole saw down to check the condition of the piston,cylinder and bearing cage, let me know if you need help pulling it apart, i have done loads.

If it started yesterday you might have fouled the spark plug or check crank case, air intake system, and exaust pipe for dirt dobber nests if both have sat up for some time I had this problem when I bought one of the same 4wheelers what happens is the crank case builds pressure also the exaust builds pressure and will not let the motor run check for ignition spark parts are vary cheap for the pocket minies check ebay i got a exaust pipe for 13 dollers 49cc also check motosports max.com or type Kazuma.com in your search bar

I HAVE A 235 16"


A Husky 445 has a compression release (about the same bar length) which gets around this difficulty. We have a 435 Husky that has the same problem--your arm needs to be in pretty good shape to pull them through. We have found that the saw needs only one pull with the choke full on to be able to start on the second or third pull. Back the choke off about half to make the following pulls. Other than replace the saw, not much help I'm afraid.

Husky 254 xp spark from plug but will not start plug seems to be wet


If the plug is wet the saw is flooded. Try the following to clear that condition.
Extreme Flooding by Dolfoff; Please follow this link,
http://www.fixya.com/support/t3226410
cursor down to “Best Solution”, while there click the “Was this helpful? [Yes]” button.

Once the flooding condition is cleared this start procedure works for every saw I have (7). Please read line 3 twice; both cold and warm.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Good Luck. HTH

Idle problems on poulan pro pp4620avl chainsaw. will start ususlly with full throttle, but can't seem to get a consistent low idle. Is there a tuning sequence for the H/L adjustments I need to know? Took...


I have several saws, among them a big Stihl and Husky, and a 46cc Poulan that I bought in 1994 that I have run through thee bars and a bunch of sprockets and chains. I use it today to buck my fire wood lengths. First, clean the carb out with a good spray carb cleaner. This will ruin your plug. Make sure your cleaner is okay. You really ought to replace all the plastic gas lines fron the carb and back and to the bulb. Make note of what goes where when you take them off.

When you get them, put the on, and some fresh oil/gas mixture. Pump that primer til you smell good gas, not the shellac smell of ruined gas.

If it starts, spray a little starter fluid in it and have your small screwdrivers on hand. Hold the throttle wide open, and ad just the hi speed screw til you hear it smooth out. Start by turning it to the right. If it doesn't smooth out or gets worse, start quarter turns to the left. Eventually you will get it to where it will winf to the max rpms.

Then, you have to work on the lo speed. I'd start by closing it and counting the turns. Try starting it bit by bit using 1/2 turns. Eventually you will get to a point where it starts easily at lo speed, and you'll find you may need to make a final adjustment on the hi speed. Mark down for the future how many turns each is.

Then go buy that guy's store and saw his door frame in half!
