Your Homelite chainsaw is a handy tool for clearing brush and conducting other large-scale yard maintenance tasks. Keeping it properly maintained is important for its long life and efficiency. If you find you're having trouble starting your chainsaw, check out these troubleshooting tips to return it to its normal working order.
Your chainsaw needs fresh gasoline to start properly. When old gas sits in the tank, it can accumulate water and cause failure to start. Especially if you've had your chainsaw in storage for the winter, make sure you start your work session by getting rid of old gas and replacing it with new fuel.
Once you've filled your chainsaw with new gas, take a look at the spark plug for corrosion. If you spot any, it's time to change the spark plug. Pull the starter cord to check for compression and ascertain whether you need to replace the piston rings. All the chainsaw repair parts you need to give your machine a basic tune-up are available at Sears PartsDirect.
If you find your chainsaw stuttering when you try to start it, you may have a problem with the carburetor, which is the part responsible for controlling the mixture of gas and air in the motor. Cleaning and rebuilding a carburetor can sometimes solve fuel supply problems, and you can buy rebuild kits that contain all the seals, gaskets and other parts needed for the rebuilding. If you need chainsaw repair help to determine whether to rebuild or replace your chainsaw's carburetor, give Sears PartsDirect a call.
