Remove the starter assembly from the engine and try to turn the flywheel by hand--it should move freely except when the piston is beginning compression. If the flywheel won't turn, then remove the muffler and check the piston skirt and cylinder for severe scoring. If it is, then suspect that the engine was run on straight gasoline. This damage will be quite expensive to repair as the cylinder, piston, and ring(s) will require replacement plus labor if you farm the work out. If the above check revealed a freely turning flywheel, then check the starter mechanism looking for a bound starter cord or other obstruction. If the spool can't be turned CCW, then suspect that the spring is over-wound and can't be turned further--remove the starter cord after wedging the spool so that it won't unwind completely, the loosen the wedge and turn the spool CW about 5 or 6 turns, then re-wedge the spool again. Reinstall the cord (replace it if badly worn) by melting the cord end, then tying an overhand knot to retain it. Wind the cord CCW 5 or 6 turns, then thread the cord though the cord port, slide the handle on, melt the cord end, and tie another overhand knot to retain the handle. Hope some of this helps!

The hand guard on the machine should control the chain brake, you should be able to firmly pull the guard fully back to the top hadle to load the brake, if the saw has been run for any time with the brake on there may well now be some melting of the plastic cover, this will mean a new brake complete required, you will have to lever the brake off the saw as best you can, it will be tight because the band will be clamped around the drum, this should only be done as a last resort if pulling the hand guard back does not work

Husqvarna 372xp won't start... Mysterious


I recently bought a brand new 372XP and spent the first day trying to start it as per the instruction manual with no success, never even fired once. Removed the plug to find plenty of fuel and that the plug has a good spark. Left it until the next day mainly to allow my arm to recover (& scour the internet for clues). I found a forum that said not to use the decompressor and sure enough without the use of the decompressor button it fired first go with the choke on then I reset the choke & it ran properly on the second pull. The decompressor button can be reset with fine nosed pliers or removal of the top cover by undoing three screws. Good luck it's a great saw once you know how to start it.

Wild thing chainsaw won't stay running. I replaced all fuel lines, primer bulb, fuel filter, gaskets to the carb. and have cleaned the carb out very well and blew out all passages. I pulled the spark...


On the carburetor got two screws to adjust the carburetor. The first is to adjust the saw when working at high speeds. Another is when running at low revs. It is best to either put back for about 1.5 cycle of the maximum of the end of the rotation of the screws. If then the saw starts, then you can adjust it fine at higher revs (H), then at low (L). Have can be minimum screw that stops the chain.

Ran out of gas put gas in wont start,pulled spark plug and put a little gas in ,it fired but wont stay running,the primmer bulb seems to be not working


Hate to tell you this but if you didn't mix oil with the gas properly (most likely a 40:1 ratio) then the chain saw will seize up and won't work again.

Sounds like your chain is to tight.Take the cover that is at right side of the saw motor off and loosen the two nuts a bit and look for a tension screw behind the bar and back it off,if the bar won't move loosen the two nuts that hold the bar on the saw.With the saw siting like you use it pull down on chain and get about 1/8 of an inch between the bar and chain.(use gloves)If the bar is blue by the chain groove You will need a new bar.Blue means the bar has over heated and lost its temper.The blue metal is brittle in other words.You should all so check the drive sprocket for wear.

If this is not the solution that you are looking for please re post because when we pick a question to answer FixYa takes it out of the questions. Thank you for choosing FixYa.com and good luck.

After adjusting. Chain and running saw. FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES. THE CHAIN. GETS REAL TIGHT STALLING THE SAW


sounds like your chain oil-er is NOT working, pull bar and take a stiff feeler gage and go around the whole bar cleaning the groove out and then make sure the oil hole in bar is clean also because if hole going to bar groove is plugged you won't get oil to lube chain. fill with oil and start and run on piece of cardboard or similar to see if it is throwing oil off chain, if so you are good, if not you are looking at cleaning/and or replacing oil pump Good Luck

It starts up, but when trigger is pulled, the


Most saws have a safety or anti kickback brake. Yours might have tripped. There is a guard in front of where your left hand holds the saw. With the saw NOT running, pull the guard HARD towards the back of the saw. It should move a bit ant you may hear a click. The chain should now move. If the chain moves easily when the saw is not running, but doesn't move when you rev the saw up, the clutch is broken.
