SOURCE: husky 455 dies out at full throttle or under load

Your carb may be the issue but your ignition coil could be the culprit. Once they start going bad, they can act up intermittently or give various symptoms from day to day. The fact that your saw dies at full load or under load, probably means that when your saw gets hot or requires more spark, your coil is not able to provide it. Your carb is easy enough to clean out, you can take it all apart and clean all screens, etc....

I just replaced my coil due to the exact same symptoms and now my saw runs great. $60 off ebay and you can put it on in 15 minutes yourself. Check your carb first though

Husky 254.wont start.fuel is filling up the carb.running out the exhaust,has spark,new fuel filter,it wont fire not even a splutter

i dont know ,usually when cylinder fills up with gas ,the float seat and needle needs to be changed. but this is a 2 cycle chain saw and not a 4 cycle lawnmower. and it is 2 cycle which means that the air/ fuel mixture goes into the crankcase first, before getting to the cylinder. So you are saying to me that your crankcase is full of 2cycle fuel, youe cylinder is full of 2 cycle fuel and the exhaust is full of 2cycle fuel.
TIME FOR a new carburator
or at the very least,a carb rebuild kit

If you want to do the job just once and be sure it will be fixed,
buy the new carburatior, but a new carb is at least $46.00 plus tax and 7.00 to 12.95 shipping. and that price is for a 33cc homelite ranger,14 inch saw, which I might just sell for parts because it is a solid body,not anti vibration handle.

so ,is your husky worth spending slightly under $100.00 on
if not ,try rebuilding the carb, may only cost 20.00 to 30 for parts but might not work & be a complete waste of $
Im not fimiliar with husky prices, I know they are big cc, heavy wieght and big price. Every thing I dont want in a saw
I can get a referbished homelite 16 inch 38 cc with anti-vibration handle for 78.00 & 7.00 ship with 90 day warranty.
or brand new for $110.00 if you run it at 30:1 oil ratio, it will last forever or until the carb craps out,which ever occurs first.

check that you have put the fuel lines on the new carby correctly
if the machine was running ok and you make a change and a problem occurs , go back to what you did and not go off trying for a different fix

My Husky Chain 18 in saw wont start after replacing fuel line

I have seen the current gas eat away and melt fuel lines. I would bet there is some gunk in the carb which is why you are not seeing fuel on the plug. You will need to remove, disassemble, and clean the carb. If you haven't done it already make sure you replace the fuel filter too.

I have a Huski 20"

Hi, assuming you have put fresh two stroke mix in the saw, it will need to have a carby diaphragm kit fitted. It's not hard to do yourself as long as you fit the new diaphragms and gasket in the exact same positions as the old ones. The reason for your problem is that the old diaphragms go hard and no longer flex due to stale fuel being left in the carby. You may also want to replace the fuel filter in the tank. Regards Phil.

I just purchased a used 51. it looks almost new. thought i got a good deal until i used it for about 10 minutes. it started to run sluggish as if i was running out of gas and than it stalled. i tried to...

With small 2 stroke engines, it's either a spark problem or it's a fuel problem. In your case, it's definitely a fuel problem.

It could be you have a drop or two of water in your fuel or in the carburetor. Put a bit of HEET (methanol) in your premix, it'll take a while to dry it out if this is it.

Check the air cleaner element. If it's dirty, clean it with carb cleaner or gasoline or similar. If it's missing entirely, this is likely the problem, it won't run properly without a filter element, as it requires a slight drop in pressure to create a vacuum to **** fuel out of the carburetor.

Also check the fuel line for a gap or crack. Either will cause it to do what you're describing.

If you still didn't get a hit, take the carburetor off and carefully clean it. It doesn't take much of anything foreign to make it wig out.

Hope this helps.

Try checking for spark when she won't start. I'll wager your ignition module quits when it gets good and warm. HTH
