Question about Garden

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Super 10-10 chain saw, it all of a sudden, quit running. I checked there was no spark. The wiring seemed okay. I took off the capacity, and measured with meter. It seems open circuit. Is that mean th capacity is bad? How can I get a new one? Many thanks! Thomas 651-714-9788,

If you are speaking of a capacitor, it should should appear open on ohms, but if you reverse the leads, the meter will show resistance for a short time as the capacitor charges. Reverse them again and repeat the previous. There should be a set of points that should open about 0.020 inch or 0.5 mm, and the point contact surfaces should look dull gray. Check ohms from the open, moving contact to engine metal--should read fairly low. Check the stop switch to make sure it reads open when in run position. Check for spark with a fresh plug as the old one may have shorted out.

I have a Stihl 025 that I can't seem to start. The two things I have noticed after I took things apart is that there is a grey wire that is not attached to anything, and dosen't seem to have anywhere

Jon try check the wires coming from the ignition coil to the on/off switch. one is a ground and the other goes into the coil. When they are connected the coil is turn off and will not spark.

quite possible. check the spark plug holder to make sure the coil is in there that connects the wire to the plug..if it is there, disconnect the kill switch and make sure none of the wires going to it are grounding on the case, it just grounds out the coil to shut it off , when disconnected you will have spark if the coil is good.....shut it off with the choke if ya start it

Spark plug gap

hi kathy. this is an easy one. first of all you will need a spark plug gapping tool, about a dollar at any auto parts store. Your chain saw most likely calls for PLUG TYPE: Champion CJ6 SPARK PLUG GAP: 0.025 in. (0.63 mm).

Here is the website of a short video to show you exactly how to gap the spark plug. write back if you need any more info.

Chain saw emitted sparks and now does not start.


When the engine get warm and die(I suppose)check the spark at the sparkplug.You can let the saw run until it ran out of gas and you will not distroy the engine.Change the sparkplug.

Remington electric chain saw 3.5 -14''

I just had my Rem. EL-8 (Mod#107624-02, 3 HP 11.5Amp) quit, too. It was less than 2yrs old, had very low hours and no abuse. I pulled it apart and found that a motor brush was burned out (at the brush electrical lead; the braided wire connecting to the winding). Unfortunately, I checked with Master Distributors ( ) and the brush assembly is no longer available. (For a less than 2-year old saw!!) They do have some parts for Remington saws, however.

Premature burnout seems to be a function of some combination of:
- using a too-light gauge extension cord for the amperage of your tool / length of extension. You can find recommendations for proper minimum gauge on the web. (This shouldn't have been the problem in my case because I used a 12-ga. 25' extension.) See:
- running too hard (big wood) for too long. I admit this seems pretty subjective; if the saw is cutting, why quit, right? But it's probably important to ease up and not let it get too hot.
- poor saw design. (internal parts don't match the power/amperage involved.)
