Take apart the fueling system and carb. Something is blocking or gummed up. One thing that sometimes works is to remove air filter, rev the unit up, and place hand fully over the intake, and remove before unit stalls. This sometimes will clear the blockage.

Hto remove crankshaft seals on a husqvarna 136 chainsaw


You will fully disassemble the engine as you must the cylinder from the crankcase. Husqvarna only sells the seals with the bearings they must be pressed on to the bearings. Since the 136 uses the same bearing set as the 141 you can order a set seals for the 141. In this the old seals must be pressed off first.
Here is a link to a site that sales the 141 seals.
Husqvarna oil seals set fits 36 136 141 142

Starts with choke, disengage choke , runs a short while, then sounds bogged down & dies.


Could be a couple of things. First guess is the carburetor is bad. Because when the saw goes from the choke circuit to run it dies.

Dont wont to start to much fuel in cilinder


Never pull the starter more than 3-4 times under full choke. Pull 3-4 times on choke, push in to half choke and pull, should start.

It starts with choke. runs fast for short time then dies


Fuel starvation, replace the fuel filter in the tank on the end of the fuel hose, check the fuel hose up to the carb for splits or cracks.

Engine start procedure for grass trimmer 350 L x series


  • With the trimmer placed on a level piece of ground press the primer bulb about 10 times.
  • Open the choke.
  • Press the throttle and lock it in place with the lock button
  • Pull the start cord until the engine catches. It doesn't matter if it cuts out again.
  • Close the choke, and if the engine did cut out the first time, pull the start cord again. This time it should start and you can start trimming the grass. If it didn't cut out just close the choke and you're ready for trimming.

My chainsaw stards for a few seconds and stops


First make sur your fuel mix is correct and thoughrlymixed. Shoul be 50:1 mix. Next make sure you try starting with switch in choke position and pull srarter cord until it fires. Once it fires move switch to run and pull till it runs. Let idle for a short time if it will.Try to slowly accelerate several times till engine warm up. If it will not run on idle adjust idle screw up till chain just starts to move then back off a little. Also if you are starting in cold conditions ,below 32 degrees remove top cover and reverse air flow deflector shield . Hope this helps. Thanks

Starts hard floods easily even avoiding the primer


Prime away... on a chainsaw it does NOT squirt fuel into carburetor. It draws fuel from tank, through carburetor, and returns it to tank.
Using the choke however will flood it in a second once it has fired. with a good fuel supply, 99.5 % of chainsaw won't start problems are flooded.
Your manual start procedure should be similar to this:
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
The real key on your Husky is to open the choke once it attempts to fire. Closing the choke sets the fast idle but leaving it closed only floods the engine once warmed up or after it attempts to start. True of Stihl too but slightly different start procedure.
If you can not find your manual you can download one here:

Have plenty of compresssion , are getting fire , seems to be gettin g fuel but still will not start - 570 husqvarna


If as you say it has good compression, spark, and fuel, yet will not start, it is most likely flooded.
Model 570 IPL (may not be your saw)

Detail G (Muffler) clean Item 3 and try once more.
Remove the plug (wet?). Install a new plug (very inexpensive).
Download your manual and follow the start procedure exactly.

My 359 floods in a nano second if I leave the choke engaged once it attempts to start. The only other time it really gave me trouble was one time I failed to set then turn off the choke when it was warm. Setting the choke also sets the fast idle on my saw. Once it has fired pulling the starter with choke on floods it.

If it still does not at least try to start, remove and clean the air filter. Put about a teaspoon of fuel mix in the carburetor throat, reinstall the clean air filter, turn on the ignition, close then open the choke, set the fast idle (if equipped), and try to start it. Did it sputter? If it sputters, attempts to run and quits it probably has a fuel delivery problem.

At this point I think it time to contact a local chainsaw seller mechanic (I use Stihl). For about a tune up/repair estimate. $40 - 60 depending on parts required. If tuned by local shop when you pick it up ask what fuel/oil mix they used (should be 50:1) and use that mix until the next time it needs service (I suggest you affix a self adhering tag near the fuel cap).

Husqvarna 345 chainsaw will not start. It is 3 years old. No problem till now. spark good, getting fuel, filter, sparkplug good.


I suspect she is flooded. Flooding is the most common cause of fails to start on a chainsaw. Remove the plug I bet it's wet.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Hope this helps

I've a 359 one time I forgot to pull then push the choke (sets fast idle). My shoulder gets sore just thinking about it.
