It could get hot and not start if the saw was quite dirty because it relies on air for cooling and if the fins can't get enough air around them it would heat up and not start. Another thing is if some one did not use the correct gas oil mixture it would get hot and score the cylinder lowering the compression causing it to not start.

I have a huscavarna 435 chainsaw and after running a few minutes the chain locks up


You may have the chain tensioner set a little too tight.

Additional things to check:
  • The sprocket on the end of the guide bar is greased, and turning smoothly.
  • The chain brake is working correctly (not dragging or only partially disengaging).
  • The guide bar is straight, not bent or twisted, burr free, and the groove the chain travels in hasn't been squeezed together.
  • The chain tension is set correctly.
  • The chain oiler is functioning correctly (and you have a sufficient amount and correct type of bar oil).
  • Chain is in good condition, and the correct one for the saw. Make sure all of the links flex smoothly.
  • Chain is sharp. A dull chain will put more pressure on the guide bar because the cutting teeth aren't digging into the wood efficiently (and usually a person pushes harder on the saw when the chain is getting dull).

Has run fine. used for hour to hour and a half and all was good. quit for an hour. added fuel and ran again. but, within 10 minutes, it died and a little smoke came from area around the pull cord. ...


Do you have the correct Resistor plug in the saw? If the plug is correct and muffler is clear, air filter clean, my thoughts would be a clogged carburetor.

My Poulan Pro 295 chain saw starts fine, runs for a few minutes, then stops and will not start until completely cool. What could be my problem?


It sounds very much loke the ignition is playing up when hot, just as a little test when it starts to die slacken off the fuel filler cap does it pick up/re start? if yes it is a fuel tank breather issue, replace the breather.

1991 Honda 750 Nighthawk...been running great. Hadn't ridden it much last 30 days or so...got on it tonight, noticed a sluggish throttle. Initially, there was slight black smoke coming from the exhaust....


carb. needs to be rebuilt sounds like trash in the float body or in the needles try using some sea foam in the gas tank (if u get it to start again) it has probably fouled out the plugs

My saw runs a few minutes then gets hot and wont start


What is the ratio of the oil/gas mix?
Sounds like it is not getting sufficient lubrication.

Add 1/2 oz (about 1/2 shot glass) of 2-cycle oil to the gas tank and try again......

Check to be sure that you have LOTS of chain oil in the chain oil tank!!

Chain saw emitted sparks and now does not start.


Hi

When the engine get warm and die(I suppose)check the spark at the sparkplug.You can let the saw run until it ran out of gas and you will not distroy the engine.Change the sparkplug.
