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