Please I need help 440e
« on: May 10, 2020, 10:57:24 am »
Hello. I purchased a 440e from Loweís for around the house. It never ran right. It was hard to start when cold and would bog down. I figured it needed the carb adjusted so I bought the tool to do that. Honestly I never adjusted the carb because I didnít use the saw and it was just sitting in the case. I pulled the saw out the other day after sitting about a year. I put fresh gas in it and it will try to start and thatís it. It fires a couple times and dies. I checked for spark and it looked weak so I bought a new plug. No difference. I tried adjusting the carb and it did the same thing. I checked the fuel filter and it was clean. I even checked the gap on the coil. After all of this, no difference. I was stump so I though maybe there was trash in the carb. I cleaned the carb completely and that did nothing. I even went as far as just replacing the carb with a brand new oem zama carb and the saw still tryís to start but thatís it. What could I be missing. It has to be something Iím just over looking but Iím really getting discouraged with this thing. Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks

I'm reading you bought the tool to adjust carb but never did it?  Then bought a new carb and never adjusted that one either. Am I reading this right?

No you read it wrong. Iíve tried adjusting the carb when I pulled it out this year. Not sure what else to do.
