How to Examine the Ignition Coils for a Husqvarna Chain Saw

When your Husqvarna chain saw won’t begin, you might immediately assume that there’s a problem with the spark plug. While which may be true, the issue might actually function as ignition coil. Before you start replacing the parts of the chain saw willy-nilly, take the time to test the string saw ignition coil to locate a definitive reply to the chain saw’s issue. If the ignition coil is defective, simply replace it since repair isn’t possible.

Disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. To do this, simply pull the boot from the spark plug.

Clip the clamp of the ignition tester into the spark plug. Insert the end of the tester which has the probe into the spark plug boot. Try to begin the chain saw.

Examine the test window of the ignition tester to find out if a spark is observable. If a spark is visible or the device begins, both of the ignition coil and the spark plug are working correctly.

Remove the clamp from the spark plug and link it a grounded spot on the chain saw such as a bolt whenever there is no spark or the chain saw does not begin during the testing procedure. Pull the string saw starter string to try to begin the chain saw.

Observe the window at the ignition tester through the starting process. When there is a spark in this process, there is a problem with the spark plug and not the ignition coil. When there is no spark in this process, the problem is probably a faulty ignition coil.

Remove the screws which hold the outer housing of the chain saw set up. Eliminate the housing to get the ignition coil. The ignition coil is located next to the carburetor.

Eliminate the grounding wire from the ignition coil with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Try to begin the chain saw again with the clamp still clipped into the bolt. A spark at the window indicates that the ignition coil is fine and indicates a issue elsewhere in the machine’s electrical system. No spark informs you that it is time to replace the ignition coil.
