SOURCE: When chain saw is starte it goes to full throttle.

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

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode. HTH

If this grand old lady were mine I would part with a few $(40±) for a tune up and and maybe an additional $20 if carburetor needs rebuild at my friendly neighborhood Stihl dealer. They perform pressure tests most homeowners cannot. An undetected air leak can destroy your saw. She deserves better.

First thing you need to check is the cylinder.Take the spark plug ouy.use a flashlight and look down the hole towards the muffler side.If its scratched up afraid the motor is shot and will need to be rebuilt.If its not scratched up let me know on here.Then I will give you more things to check.

Answer to 2 year old question about hard starting saw.There is a seal that goes bad and leaks chain oil into the crankcase.This will make it very hard or impossible to pull the starter rope. To start the saw,pull the spark plug, stand the saw on it's end so the bar is pointed up and pull the rope 10-15 times. Replace the spark plug and start.It will smoke for a while.To stop this from happening, always store the saw with the bar pointed straight down.

Go to a servicing saw dealer or auto parts supplier who has the correct plug for you (and what gap to set the electrodes). Check for spark before installing the new plug. Good luck!

I have this saw and really like it. Does the the primer seem to work? Most problems on these saws can be traced back to cracked fuel lines. Either tank to primer, primer to carb, or carb return back to tank. I would recommend it the saw it more than 3 years old to replace all the fuel lines. Total cost about $5. Buy your fuel line at Ace Hardware.

Husqvarna chain saw works great until its shut off then it wont start again


A couple of suggestions:

How old is the gas in the tank? If it has sat for a year in the tank or the can, the gas won't burn as easily because of octane breakdown. Mix in newly bought gas (with oil of course).

Pull the spark plug(s) and check the spark gap referring to your manual. If the gap is too wide, you'll have a hard time starting it.
It's also a good idea to check how dirty your spark plugs are, and clean if necessary.

Depending on the age of the saw, if it's 35 years old or more, you may have to put less 2-cycle oil into your mix. The ratio has changed for all 2 cycle engines if they're approximately 35 years or older. Instead of 30 to 1 it's now 50 to 1.

Describe your Husqvarna "Chain Saw -


Remove the spark plug and test for spark. If ok, try some starting fluid in the plug hole, install the plug, and try to start. If it runs a short time, it is not getting fuel. Check fuel lines including inside the tank. Clean or replace the air filter. If this saw is fairly old, the carburetor probably needs a re-kit and cleaning. Does it have good compression? Check the muffler for plugging. Make sure the fuel/oil mix is fresh. Good luck!
