No spark form high tention wire chain saw will not start


Try a fresh plug gapped at 0.020". If no help, remove the cover from the flywheel side of the engine so that the flywheel and ignition module are exposed. Remove the ignition switch wire from the module and try for spark again. If nothing, then check the gap between the flywheel magnets and the module poles with a thin business card--insert the card into the gap and allow the module to snap to the magnets when the screws are loosened and then tightened. Rotate the flywheel somewhat to work out the card. Recheck for spark again--if still nothing, replace the ignition module using the same procedure as above for installation (don't forget the ignition switch wire). Hope this helps!

Air gap setting


I assume you are speaking of the ignition module pole gap to the flywheel. Rotate the flywheel magnets under the ignition module poles, and use a thin business card for a gauge. With the card in place, loosen the module screws and allow it to contact the magnets, then re-tighten the screws. Rotate the flywheel to remove the card, then turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gap does not close up at any point. Don't forget the ignition switch wire. Hope this helps!

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!

Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18": how does this module work, what is the circutry ?"...


If you are speaking of the ignition module, the flywheel magnets induce a high voltage from an internal coil through a diode and into a capacitor and then the magnet position controls a transistor that discharges the capacitor into the ignition primary coil and that induces spark voltage into the ignition secondary coil which fires the plug. It requires several revolutions of the flywheel to charge the capacitor and why it takes several pulls of the starter to get the plug to fire regularly. That's a lot of action inside such a small package! Hope this helps!

I replaceed spark plug,and still on spark. Whats next? (poulan 4218) chainsaw


Remove the flywheel side cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Check the flywheel magnets to ignition module gap with a thin business card for a gauge. If ok, remove the grounding wire that goes to the ignition switch and try for spark again. If still nothing, it's new module time. If removing the grounding wire got it to spark, replace the ignition switch or perhaps the grounding wire has shorted out on it's way to the ignition switch. Hope this helps!

Poulan saw wont start has spark and fuel


Look for a pinched/bare stop-switch wire (I assume that you don't have spark now). Also, check the ignition coil core gap to the flywheel magnets (I use card stock to set the gap). Make sure the plug wire was not damaged again.

No spark from spark plug


New Saw? Warranty time
Electronic ignition? Replace entire module. Pinched wire to metal case part for ignition switch. Permanently shorted ignition switch--replace.
