    I just used this saw a couple of weeks ago with no problem. Now it will not start. It has a spark, and fuel is getting to the chamber. Any ideas?

    hows you compression ? water in the fuel ? flooded? if flooded remove spark plug and let dry,make sure switch is turned off and pull recoil to remove and excess fuel from cylinder,install the plug,set the switch to choke, then move up one click so the trigger is still locked and pull the recoil until it starts making sure to not turn the choke back on if its the flooded condition it make 10 or 15 pulls but it will fire.
