Q:

Husqvarna 455 Rancher

A:

Thank you for your question on the chain saw.

From experience I have found that if the saw is cold blooded when starting from cold it is running too lean.

One way to confirm that is to take a little fuel and remove the air cleaner and drop it down the throat of the carburetor.

If it starts quickly I would open the low speed jet on the carburetor about a 1/8 of a turn.

Since you have are very knowledgeable with these small engines it I am sure you have tied a number of things that have not worked.

You may also have to adjust the throttle screw to get the engine to idle correctly.

Please let me know if it works for you and we can continue troubleshooting to get this saw to start easier.

Thank you for the update. I didn't think you would have had a way to check the compression other that feel on the pull cord. I would have thought the dealer would have done the compression check. I believe it should be between 95 to 110 psi. I am glad the dealer is going to repair it for you under warranty. Sam A.

That sounds great. With the compression release it is a little hard to tell by just pulling the rope. Sam A.

Q:

fridge temp 55 degrees!

A:

Thanks for providing that model number.

When the refrigerator door was left open overnight, it could have caused a build-up of frost on the evaporator that is blocking the air flow through the refrigerator. I recommend that you check the inside back wall at the bottom of the freezer for frost or ice build-up. If you see frost in this area, I recommend that you unplug the refrigerator and remove the cover in front of the evaporator (bottom part if the back wall inside the freezer). You will likely see if the evaporator fins covered with ice and frost. Use an air gun or hair dryer on a low heat setting to manually defrost this area. Be prepared for water to overflow the defrost drain pan under the freezer if there is a large amount of ice on the evaporator. Once you defrost this are, reassemble the refrigerator and see if the fresh food section will cool properly.

If you still have problems or see no apparent signs of excessive frost on the evaporator, then you could have a problem with the air circulation through the refrigerator. Check to see if you detect any air flow through the damper vent at the top part of the wall between the freezer and refrigerator. Frost could also form in this area and block the vent or prevent the damper from opening to provide cool air into the fresh food compartment. If you detect this type of problem, you can try to manually defrost this area. If that does not help, then you will likely need to have a service technician diagnose and repair the refrigerator. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If you need more help with this cooling problem, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.
