1990-91 Jonsered 630 Chainsaw

My husband has had this chainsaw for years and has never had a real problem with it. The other day it started and ran well on full throttle but then would quit and when he tried to start again it just sputtered and won't start. He worked on it for about 4 hrs checking through his checklists but to no avail. He thinks he might need a carb kit. I suggested the oil mixture could be problem but the same mixture works fine in my little Jonsered saw that he bought me last xmas. What else could be the problem? Or could it be a carb kit.?Should he possibly check the exhaust system?
My email is
sure would appreciate any input that help

I would try a spark plug first and second look at the muffler, sometimes the exhaust part of it gets clogged up and it can't "breathe"

    If it has set for a long period of time the gas could be stale and also the carb could be gummed to and not allow for proper operation. I bought a carb kit for my saw for about 20.00

Jonsered chainsaw. what's the difference between the 630 and the 630V? (mine is a 1985 and the booklet says 630 but the machine says 630V)

Never seen a v after the model no. however i would say it is just a 630, the 630 was a Husqvarna 162 machine badge engineerd to be a Jonsered.

My 2 year old Jonsered chainsaw starts and runs but has no power. I've cleaned the air filter and replaced the spark plug but still runs the same.

Try playing with the fuel mix screw, one of two that can be accessed on the outside of the saw. one should be marked "T" and the other "S" play with the "T" screw, wind it all the way in and back it off 1 turn as a starting point then half a turn out until you get a result. alternatively... unfortunately, it sounds like the piston rings have gone. go shopping.

Chainsaw chain oiler not working

There is probably a filter on the bottom of a hose within the oil tank. Go through the tank fill cap with a blunted rod. Move it slowly you should find the hose. Draw it gently toward the opening. You can probably find a new filter at a Husqvarna (parent company) dealer if you don't have a Jonsered dealer handy. Oil pump replacement is complicated. Any good chainsaw mechanic can replace it regardless of what saw they sell. Arboristsite dot com is a buch of chainsaw nuts (Eye r 1). They will give you better guidance. Please do a searh in the chainsaw forum before asking "how do I fix my saw", the answer has almost certainly been asked. Spike60 is a Jonsered dealer and is always helpful. HTH Lou

Choke wont stay in the closed position for starting

Been a while since I saw a Jonsered but I think if you bend the choke linkage a little that it will stay in the choke position.
