Question about Husqvarna Garden
When chain saw is started you must start it with choke full out. Once saw startes it goes to full throttle when choke is pushed in. Also it will not idle. Saw is only two years old with very little use. I took the carb apart and cleaned it , that didn't help. My next step was to check the price of a new carb. Any thoughts !!!! Ron
You understand there is a fast idle start position? If your saw is new it is triggered when the choke is pulled and remians in this position (even when choke pushed in) until the throttle is advanced once. Read your warm start instructions, it says pull clutch, push clutch, start. This is why we should buy saws from a chainsaw seller/mechanic NOT Home Depot!!!
I made the mistake ONCE of attempting to start mine without the fast idle engaged... my shoulder aches just thinking about it. GL

This sounds like there could be a linkage problem. From memory on my saw the choke retracts when the throttle is pulled and there is a little linkage that works between them. If this is all operating fine the next step is to adjust the carbie and make sure the settings are correct. You will have a H high screw and a L low screw. Screw both all the way in and then out 1 1/4 turns. With the engine warm fine tune the high revs setting but turning it 1/8 of a turn at a time with the engine revving high. When that is about right do the same with the low setting this time with the engine idling. Then check the high setting again and adjust if necessary. The two screws affect each other a little so find a balance. If
