Husqvarna won't start.

Recommended Posts

My husband bought a new husqvarna chainsaw last month. Initially it ran perfectly for about the first hour and then it would not idle but kept cutting out. He then adjusted the fuel screws and now it fails to start. Any advice appreciated.

If its only a month old you need to take it back,assuming you bought it from a dealer

Did you run it with mixed 2-stroke fuel? I’ve heard of people  mistakenly putting neat petrol in the fuel tank and 2-stroke oil in the oil tank before (which ends in disaster as the saw doesn’t mix its own fuel/oil)...

It was bought from an online dealer so not so easy I fear.

No. It was run with the correct mix of fuel.

OK then . This leaves the possibility of damage to the piston and bore but unlikely as you say you have run it on the correct mix . If the screws have been " twiddled " the first thing to do is put them back to the standard factory settings .   If this brings no joy you need to take/send it to someone who knows what they are doing . I can recommend Spud on here . @spudulike

Hmmm,i find it best to deal with local suppliers,it keeps them in business and when something like this happens it makes things easier to sort out
