Air filter
The air filter must be regularly cleaned to remove dust and dirt
in order to avoid:
Carburettor malfunctions
Starting problems
Loss of engine power
Unnecessary wear to engine parts
Excessive fuel consumption.
Clean the filter every 8 hours, or more regularly if conditions
are exceptionally dusty.
Cleaning the air filter
Remove the air filter cover and take out the filter. Wash it
clean in warm, soapy water. Ensure that the filter is dry before
refitting it.
An air filter that has been in use for a long time cannot be
cleaned completely. The filter must therefore be replaced with
a new one at regular intervals. A damaged air filter must
always be replaced.
The sweeper is often used under dusty conditions. It is
extremely important to maintain the air filter regularly, often
daily. The air filter must be oiled in order to work
Oiling the air filter
Always use HUSQVARNA filter oil, art. no. 531 00 92-48. The
filter oil contains a solvent to make it spread evenly through
the filter. You should therefore avoid skin contact.
Put the filter in a plastic bag and pour the filter oil over it.
Knead the plastic bag to distribute the oil. Squeeze the
excess oil out of the filter inside the plastic bag and pour off
the excess before fitting the filter to the machine. Never use
common engine oil. This would drain through the filter quite
quickly and collect in the bottom.

If the machine is low on power, difficult to start or runs poorly
at idle speed: always check the spark plug first before taking
any further action. If the spark plug is dirty, clean it and check
that the electrode gap is 0.5 mm (0,020"). The spark plug
should be replaced after about a month in operation or earlier
if necessary.
CAUTION! Always use the recommended spark plug type!
Use of the wrong spark plug can damage the piston/cylinder.
IMPORTANT! Use only HUSQVARNA replacement parts.
Use of other brands of replacement parts can cause
damage to your unit or injury to the operator or others. Your
warranty does not cover damage or liability caused by the
use of accessories and/or attachments not specifically
recommended by HUSQVARNA.
