Having your engine flood indicates that there is an excessive amount of gasoline being pushed into the engine, which has displaced the oxygen required to start the engine. You should allow your chainsaw to idle for 15 to 20 minutes in order for the fuel to evaporate from the motor. If your engine is only slightly flooded, this procedure will work best for you.
What should I do if my chainsaw engine floods?
The ignition switch, as well as the throttle and choke, should be turned off if you suspect that the chainsaw engine has flooded (a strong smell of gasoline is a good indication of this). Allow it to cool for a few minutes. Some loggers even recommend that you remove the spark plug and pull the wire many times while all of the switches are in the ″off″ position to get the best results.
How do you know if your chainsaw spark plug is flooded?
If you believe that your chainsaw spark plug has been flooded, you must examine it. It is gently unscrewed and examined with the assistance of a spark plug wrench. The spark plug was flooded if it was moist and there was a spark, which indicates that it was flooded. The color of a spark plug is likely to be used by many experienced owners to assess the present status of the plug.
What happens when a chainsaw carburetor floods?
- When the chainsaw floods, there is an excess of fuel in the combustion chamber, which pushes out the oxygen that is required for the spark to ignite the fuel, resulting in the chainsaw exploding.
- In essence, cleaning the combustion chamber with a chainsaw is the same as cleaning a flooded carburetor.
- When you clean the chamber, you are also cleaning the fuel in the carburetor, which allows more area for oxygen to enter.
