Need Help Trouble Shooting MS280 Chainsaw
« on: March 21, 2019, 08:26:10 AM »
My Ms280 wouldn't start, found the issue was no spark with new spark plug. I replaced the ignition coil and gapped it. saw started right up and ran well for about 10 minutes. the it would run but not idle. I restarted it a couple of time but it would stop when I tried to idle it. then it stopped and now will not start. also now it has a significant amount of resistance when I try to pull the starter cord. I have checked the coil and it is properly gapped still. Has new fuel and plenty of bar oil. Thanks for any help!

Resistance may be flooding. Pull plug - is it wet? Turn saw upside down and pull rope - does rope pull easily? Does fuel shoot out plug hole?

Was this a running saw that quit or has it been sitting?
