SOURCE: Chainsaw will not start

Remove muffler and check for carbon blockage.
If that is ok check crankshaft seals for leakage.

Does the spark plug get wet with fuel when pulled through? If dry, try spraying a little starting fluid in the plug hole and reinstall the plug. If it pops at least once, you have fuel delivery problems--look for hardened/ cracked fuel lines. Clean the muffler arrestor screen. When the muffler is off, check the condition of the piston skirt and cylinder wall for deep scoring or obvious wear. Make sure the primer button (if equipped) is filling with fuel when pumped a few times. If it doesn't, make sure the bulb is not hard or cracked and check the lines going to and from it. Check the carburetor bolts and nuts for tightness. The fuel filter in the tank could be plugged, fish it out and check. If you have checked all these items, it may be time to clean and rekit the carburetor. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: poulan 295 model chainsaw/ won't start, no spark

Start first with a fresh spark plug set at 0.020" gap. Make sure ignition switch is on. If still nothing, remove the cover from the flywheel. Set the ignition module gap by using a thin business card between the module poles and the flywheel magnets. Loosen the mounting screws, let the module contact the magnets, and re-tighten the screws. Turn the flywheel to remove the card, then rotate the flywheel on full turn checking that the gap doesn't close-up any further. Check for spark again--if still nothing, remove the ignition switch wire from the ignition module. Check for spark--if spark now occurs, check the condition of the ignition switch or the connecting wire may be grounding out somewhere in between. If still nothing, replace the ignition module. Hope this helps!

Poulan Pro - won't start after quitting


Hi, unfortunatley you have partially siezed the chainsaw. You will still feel some compression with your thumb but the rings will be siezed in the piston. Hence no fuel transfer to the sparkplug. Sorry Phil.

Poulan 446t Will start, won't continue to


The diaphragm in the carb is likely ruined from the gas gelling onto it. This will put pinholes in it and then it won't work properly. Pick up a carb kit and rebuild it (if parts available) and then you should be good to go. If you can't rebuild the carb, a replacement will run you 30 bucks or more.

Just bought a poulan 14 inch chainsaw...filled it with bar oil and the gas oil mix. Trying to start and won't even turn over. Any suggestions?


If it wont turn over, it may be because the cylinder is full of fuel, remove the spark plug under the top cover, with the plug out does it no crank over, if so give it a good few pulls to clear it out, replace the pluf and try again, using no choke and full throttle, just one point you didnt fill the fuel tank with oil by mistake??
