How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

The two most common reasons a chainsaw won`t idle are a blocked air filter and an idle screw out of adjustment. Other possible causes include: Dirty Air Filter. Idle Screw out of Adjustment.
If your electric chainsaw won`t start, try examining it for these issues: Not pressing the safety button at the same time as the trigger. Tripped electrical breaker (for corded chainsaws) Frayed or damaged electrical cord (for corded chainsaws)
If the filter becomes clogged, not enough fuel will reach the engine for it to run properly. Because your chainsaw will idle, but dies when it is revved up to full power, it means that the filter is only partially clogged; it will allow enough fuel to the engine to run on idle, but not enough to sustain full throttle.
Electric Chainsaw Won`t Start

If your saw is cordless, you need to check to see if your battery is actually charged, or is charging correctly. Rechargeable batteries can begin to lose power over time and need to be replaced.

The reason could be a plugged air filter, a clogged fuel line, or a faulty spark plug. We`ve put up this article to assist you in identifying the reasons behind a stalled Stihl chainsaw and have provided an adequate solution, so you don`t have to search elsewhere.
The most common reasons why your automatic oiler isn`t working are: Your chainsaw`s oil tank is empty. The chainsaw oiler is clogged. The oil pump is broken.
There are many factors that can stop your chainsaw from running, including a bad spark plug or dirty air filter. There are simple problems: a broken fuel line, bad fuel, wrongly calibrated high-low adjustment screw. Also, more complex issues like a damaged carburettor or an engine compression problem.
Chainsaw Chain Keeps Moving at Idle – FIX A – Faulty Clutch

Either replace you clutch, clutch spring, or tighten the spring. There could be lots of sawdust or wood chips stuck in the clutch, if so get rid of this.

If your chainsaw still starts and then stops working, check the air filter. Clean or replace the air filter if it is dirty or damaged. Another reason that your chainsaw starts and then stops working could be that the spark arrestor is dirty or clogged. If this is the case, clean it with a wire brush.

Automatic oiler has never worked well even when saw was new, chain never gets enough oil. Should I use a lighter grade oil, or what else should I check?
ANSWER : Take the bar off the saw and check that the hole that the oil comes out hasn’t become blocked with saw dust. It sometimes happens also that when you are filling the saw with oil, shavings and saw dust can get into the tank and this can block the pipes connecting the tank to the hole that the oil comes out. Although it isn’t really recommended, I have used waste engine oil regularly for oiling the saw. This works ok as long as there aren’t any lumps in it.

Dont know what type off oil to put in the bar and chain tank on the chainsaw
ANSWER : Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

All Bar oils are SAE 30W non-detergent oil. Go down to the local auto parts supply and buy the cheapest SAE 30W you can find…. SAE 30W is SAE 30W regardless of what brand is on it and for bar oil it is not an issue.
