When the saw shuts itself off, remove the spark plug and check for blue, snappy spark with a fresh/clean plug set at 0.020" gap. If nothing, remove the flywheel cover to expose the wheel and ignition module. Remove the ignition switch wire and try for spark, if still nothing, check the pole gap at the module with a thin business card. Bring the flywheel magnets under the module poles, insert the card into the existing gap, loosen the mounting screws to allow the module to contact the module poles, then tighten the screws. Rotate the wheel somewhat to remove the card, and try for spark again. If still nothing, replace the module and install as above. Don't forget the ignition switch wire. If the first test gave good spark, put some fuel mix into the plug hole and try for start--it should pop several times. If ok, release the fuel cap for a moment and see if restart can be done. If it does, then clean the vent area on the tank side (a small bronze plate in the tank case). Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Does the primer pump pull fresh fuel into itself when pumped several times? If not, remove the carburetor and clean it inside and out with spray carburetor cleaner. Check the lower chamber diaphragm for flexibility with no holes or cracks. Hope some of this gets you running!

Why does my john deere chain saw leak a lot of bar oil after i get done running it?


There bar oil seal is not that great it wears out right away and leaks instead of squirting oil when you pump it.
Don't worry 80 % of all chain saw leak sooner or later. Just put oil when you use it then drain it when you store it.

I have a chain saw homelite and the bar leaks oil in my case what do i do


Drain oil back out of tank B 4 you put away , its also a very good idea if you drain and purge gas tank as well , as either of these fluids left in saw will cause u problems if you leave in inside for long periods(< week) when you restart saw

Chain oil keeps leaking out..how can I stop it ???


First, make sure you're using bar & chain oil, it's very thick and won't leak out like motor oils will. When you're done using the saw, store it with the blade side of the saw up. Not always convienent, but the oil will run away from the blade oil channels and not leak out.

I have a small homelite chainsaw.super EZ on the starter rewind it says automatic, but it has a manual chain oiler, it also has a knob that is labeled trigger latch, it appears also to be a compression...


oil out of the exhaust means that the oil /fuel mixture is incorrect
change the mix to 50:1 ( for the correct mixture there should be a faint wisp of smoke at rpms)
the chain is oiled automatically when the chain is running and the oil will leak out if left with a full oil tank and unused
the idling problem most likely will be from the incorrect oil/fuel ratio or incorrect oil in use --it is not engine oil but 2 stroke oil
do not use e mix fuels in small engines

Oil leak when running.


Remove the bar and chain from the engine. Clean the entire area where the bar fits to the case. Start the engine--oil should ooze out of the side port only. If ok, clean the bar drive-end small oil-channels that bring oil to the chain groove on each side of the bar. Also, clean the entire chain groove. Refit the bar, chain, and cover leaving the fasteners finger tight. Turn the chain adjuster CW until the chain comes up to the bar, but not so tight that the chain can't be turned by hand. Tighten the cover fasteners and recheck the chain tension. Start the engine and run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. Hope this helps!

My homelite chainsaw model# ut10520 has aoil leak from the flexible line at the base of the oil tank.


I input your model number and found 3 possible matches, "42cc/46cc Chain Saw UT-10520; SUPER 2 Chain Saw UT-10520 or SUPER 2 Chain Saw UT-10520-A".
I opened the first "Ref # 3" on "Figure A" I suspect is what you say is leaking. It is very inexpensive and available. I would order one and inspect it once recieved to determine an installation method. It does not appear overly difficult without the part in hand. Good Luck.

I have a homelite xl, UT# 10655- the chain oil seems to be leaking and coming out of the exhaust and continues to leak after shutting off the chainsaw. Any ideas on the possible cause?


Your saw is listed as an "XL Chain Saw UT-10655" here:

See the "Engine Internals" print. The oiler appears to above the clutch and driven by a pressurized tank. Venting the tank (opening the oil cap) may help help with weeping but only emptying the tank will stop it.

If no oil from engine oiler hole I suspect a failed hose or connection. Use the IPL to inspect and repair as needed.

Oil System Plugged.
  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. Please take extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.

My chain saw (14 inch gas powered) would not


Modern chainsaws have the ability to run without turning the chain via the chain-brake. To set the brake the uppermost handle is pushed forward (toward the chain) and a firm snap should be heard and felt. To release the brake you pull the same handle back (towards the engine) and get the same "snap".
Concerning oil leakage: Bar/chain lube collects on the inside of the clutch cover and the sawdust mixes with it as you saw. A surprising amount of oil gets absorbed in the sawdust and later seeps back out when the saw is at rest. If the level of oil in the tank noticably drops after sitting overnight you may have a leak...otherwise it's normal.
As for a running chain that wont cut, it is common for chains to be installed backward and the unit still function perfectly (it just won't cut wood). See the proper chain orientation here. In this photo the chain travel is from left to right.

Bar chain oil leaking into case when not in use


if you store it somewhere other than a climate controlled building , the changes in temperature can cause the oil to expand out of the saw a little each time the temp. goes up.

try some absorbent cloth
