Hi i have a homelite chain saw csp 3314 and is not been use for tow years ,i try to start but refuses to ,it has a good spark ,i don't know why is not starting?? any help i will apresiete.


Most often this is because the gas has "soured" - it breaks down into a varnish compound, which is easily recognized by a foul smell in the gas tank that does not smell like gas.

You need to drain all the old gas. Pull the spark plug (clean it also- using a new plug is even better!), pump the primer bulb, and then pull the cord twenty times or so with no plug in the engine to try and purge all the old fuel. Get as much as possible out of the fuel system- the primer bulb should only have a drop or two at most in it.

Next, put in fresh gas along with a little carb cleaner- mix a gallon of gas with half an ounce of carb cleaner, plus whatever amount of two stroke oil you normally mix per gallon. Put the plug back in. Press the primer bulb 3 times, set the choke, and try to start. Make sure that you can see fuel in the primer bulb.

Your chainsaw will probably fire on the first or second pull, but not run (if it does start and run, GREAT!) On the third pull, most often it will start....if not....

Pump the primer three more times, and try the starting procedure again, and hopefully it will start, possibly running rough for the first minute.

If you still cannot get it started, pull the plug, clean and dry it, and try again... it is best at this point if you have a brand new plug to use it instead.

If your saw will still not start and run steady, you probably have a "varnished carb" - buildup from the gas souring has clogged the needle valve/orifice, and the float may be stuck. You will need to service the carb.

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

After starting and operating the chainsaw for a short time, it dies and I can't get it started again. Suggestions?


Engines require 3 things. Spark, compression and fuel. And chainsaw need 2-cycle oil mixed with the gas.

Assuming you have the right oil-gas mixture and a fresh batch of gas, and you didn't leave old gas in the saw all summer long since last November.

-Take off the dirty air filter and see if saw starts without filter. Do not run without putting in new filter.
-Check exhaust port for mud dobber home or screen clogged with carbon and dirt
-See if saw fires up after squirting WD-40 directly into carburetor
-Check gas line >>> pull gas line loose and see if gas flows out of tank to carburetor
-Take out spark plug > put finger over spark hole and pull cord >> do you feel suction that says you got compression?
-Put spark wire back on spark plug >>> hold spark plug so threads touch bare metal part of spark plug hole >>> pull starter cord and see if spark shows between plug and saw >>> suggest you not hold metal part of spark plug while pulling cord [you'll understand why]
-If spark plug shows spark, then your saw has spark ... so put in new plug and start fresh.

If your saw has compression, spark, and fuel it should start unless carburetor is gummed up because gas was left in tank.
Here is the final trick. Start the saw while spraying WD-40 directly into carburetor and see if you can keep it going with the WD-40. This might take a helper. If this does not work, then carburetor is bad or gas line is clogged at carburetor. Time to take it to the shop.

Brand new Honda Generator 2000i will not start. uhhg


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

Things that must be verified.

1. Fuel selector: ON
2. Start run sw: ON
3. Oil Level : Full
4. Choke selector FULL ON for no more than 2 pulls initially The half choke then off
5. Spark at the Spark Plug YES? NO?
a. No spark suspect low oil level sensor is grounding the ignition either due to low oil level or it just is not working properly.

After doing all of the above...

Spark Plug WET or DRY? Dry and still won't start check fuel supply. If you use the choke with the start run switch in the off position the spark plug should get WET. Spark plug does not get wet... with choke on and ignition off. Fuel supply problem.

At this point I suspect either the Oil Level is incorrect or... that the FUEL SELECTOR is OFF.

If you need more help just respond here and we can press on.

Thanks for choosing FixYa

Check the muffler for plugging of the arrestor screen. If no help, check the carburetor for a hardened diaphragm or any plugging. Are you getting fuel into the primer bulb when pumped several times? Make sure the primer is pulling fuel from the carburetor by removing the line that goes back to the fuel tank and place a small cup or can under the primer port that the hose came off of. Pump the primer several times--it should push fuel out each time. If not, place the carburetor line on the other port and repeat the process. The pump must pull fuel FROM the carburetor to properly prime it. Barring a blown crankshaft seal, the engine should start. Hope this helps!

it sounds like you have contaminants in the fuel and have clogged the fuel filter or carburetor, try changing fuel filter if there is one and back flush the fuel lines with carb cleaner spray and clean out fuel tank and clean with brake cleaner refill with fresh fuel.

Engine on Craftsman Weedwacker will not turn over.


I assume the tank has gas. The first thing to check is for spark at the plug. Remove the plug from engine, connect the plug wire to the plug and ground the side of plug to metal engine housing using pliers with plastic grip handles so you don't get a shock. Pull the starter cord and watch the plug for a spark jump. If you have spark then it is likely a gas starved situation. All these small engines should be run dry before storing in the fall of year to prevent carb from gumming up over the winter. Anyway remove the gas line and drain any gas from carb and drain tank too if it has old gas from last year. Replace fuel line and spark plug. Using new gas and 2 cycle oil, plus an ounce of STP gas treatment, refill tank. Work the primer bulb several times and pull the throttle several times, then pull cord. Keep repeating to see if you get a start.

Ryobi 790r i have changed the gas line and the primer bulb . the primer will mash in 1 good time and then gets very hard to mash in . i fully choke it and it will crank but only for 3 seconds until it...


You cannot flood the engine by pushing the primer bulb too much, unless the hoses are hooked up backwards. The primer does not push gas to the carb, it sucks gas through the carb and returns it to the tank. Top barb on primer is the hose coming from the return side of the carb and the bottom fitting is the hose going to the return fitting on the tank. Look inside tank, it is the one without the filter on it, just a flange with a hole in the center.

If you can see gas and air bubbles moving through the primer and into the tank the hoses are on correctly. If you see bubbles going in the correct direction and then reversing when you remove your finger from the bulb, then the check valves in the primer may be bad. Replace primer.

When you say the primer "gets hard to mash", do you mean it is hard to push in or is it very slow to refill and return to the home position? If it is hard to push in and the bulb is full of gas and the hoses are on correctly then there must be a plug in the line going to the tank or the vent in the gas cap is not working. If it does not return, then it is most likely a plugged filter, plugged line from the tank to the carb, plugged screen inside the carb or a stuck needle valve. The primer is creating a slight vacuum to pull the gas through the carb, which is what the carb does when the engine is running. If there is a full or partial restiction on the supply circuit neither the primer nor the carb can pull enough gas for the engine to run. May need to disassemble carb and clean out any varnish, gunk or plugged ports/jets. Use spray carb cleaner. May want to think about a diaphagm and gasket kit if you do it yourself. If you do not feel confident in taking apart the carb, then take to a repair shop.
