I have an Echo 500VL that won't start after it gets hot. I've had it since early 80's. Could it be the coil? Thanks Tom

What causes a chainsaw to run great until it gets hot. It then shuts off and will not restart?


Anyways.... your coil is throwing intermittent spark. Which is a sign of a coil going bad. It's basically malfunctioning when it's around severe heat. Don't bang your head against the wall bud, get a new coil assy.

I have a 500VL saw, about 30 years old that was serviced once about 15 years ago. It starts, but then stops, as though it is starved for fuel.


a good bet your carb needs to be cleaned especially if it has been sitting for any length of time.

Cannot get my trimmer started.


Tom, it sounds like part of the rope has jumped off of the spool. There should be a small piece of plastic with a screw holding the spool in place. It may have worked itself loose.

Problems with Dura Spark ignition system on a 2.8L V6 engine, '76 - '78 Mustang/Capri


Very small help:
> ,(& what is a “ballast” resistor? Is it different from a regular resistor?).

Ballast resistors are special; they have what is known as a 'positive temperature coefficient' meaning that they increase in resistance with temperature.
This provides a very hot spark to start, then a reduction in current as the resistor warms up.
This prevented points and coils from frying from unnecessarily high current.
Early electronic ignition systems still used them, I don't think any modern car has them now.

If you have a larger public library, it might be worth a look on line (if available) or a visit to search for a manual; have found some classics there.
If you find it there - copy it, then RETURN IT! :-)
