Question about Husqvarna "Chain Saw - 16" Bar, 3 Hp

2 Answers

I have a relatively new 16" Husqvarna chainsaw, and I have the hardest time getting it started....sometimes I can't even get it started. Once I get it going, it usually runs fine, but it is extremely difficult to start....like 20-30 pulls.

I had a similar problem in a 345e caused by ethanol-blend fuel(poison to a lot of 2 stroke and other engines). This is an Australian view - strongly suggest stay away from E10 etc , use premium fuel and quality oil(2 stroke and synthetic).

We have a Husky 435 (two year warranty) that was new last year. It would start and run fine for several days, then nothing--took to warranty service where they replaced the ignition module the first time. Ran for several more days, then nothing again--this time they replaced the carburetor and it seems to working fine from then on. Suspect that Husqvarna has had problems with our ethanol-blended fuels. If you still have warranty coverage, then take advantage. Hope this helps!

I have a Husqvarna 340? with 16 inch bar. Has sat for a while but now will not start. It pulls fine but doesnt crank. Second, what type oil should i mix with the gas


Any brand of 2-cycle oil for air cooled engines will work. Do not use outboard, snowmobile, etc. Sounds like the gas evaporated and the oil was left in the carb and clogged it up. You can try removing the air filter and spraying some gum cutter, carb cleaner or Sea Foam(my favorite) into the carburator. It will probably need to be diassembled and cleaned. Usually the hardest part of the job is getting the link and hoses unhooked.

Husqvarna Model 136 chainsaw will only run for a short time with choke closed. Engine quits shortly after choke is opened.


Take apart the fueling system and carb. Something is blocking or gummed up. One thing that sometimes works is to remove air filter, rev the unit up, and place hand fully over the intake, and remove before unit stalls. This sometimes will clear the blockage.

Husqvarna 235e will not stay running


Take the saw back for warranty service. We have a Husky #435 that had starting problems when new last year--warranty service replaced the ignition module the first trip, then a little later, they replaced the carburetor--it has worked very well since. I suspect that Husqvarna has had problems with our ethanol blended fuels. Hope this helps!
