Hello there, I don't have much experience working on chainsaws and was wondering if a standard spark plug style spark tester would work in shecking for spark? This saw is only a season old and has been taken care of extremely well. It will not run this season not even a sputter, I am assuming the plug is no good but not sure how to check ignition on a saw. Any help would be appreciated!

Old gas sticking carb diaphragms I bet. Try some fresh gas, maybe some carb cleaner in it, but if stuck bad, might not be enough. Tear-down carb is next. OR, old plastic lines get hard and crack and leak, not pulling fuel. But if kinda new, probly not that.

Unplug the kill wire and see if you got spark, sounds like kill switch

A spark is a spark chainsaw or car should work. I have different model sometimes it acts up. And I flick the kill switch a few times and it starts. If its the switch or just ready to run not sure. I used mine from 8:00 till dark for 5 days straight good little saws.

Plug looks a bit like fuel fouled. I will hook a spark tester to it tomorrow, I just found out my friends dad had a heart attack and he was in Nebraska. He is falling asleep driving home so the wife and I are going to drive 4 hours to intercept him and take over so we can get him to the hospital before his father passes on. Wish us luck we don't have much time!

Just an update, we got my friend to the hospital that night and he said his goodbyes. His father passed away two days later and he was happy to get some time with him. The chainsaw apparently heard about carma and after reassembly and three spark plugs later fired up and now is back in service! Thank you all for your input it was a help as always!
