    My 42CC Craftsman saw does the same thing. Runs pretty well till it gets warmed up then shuts down. I cleaned the engine with air hose, as savumihai71 suggested, but no help. I'm thinking that maybe the cheap, clear, plastic gas lines are collapsing when the machine gets hot.

Craftsman 18" chain saw 42cc. Starts and runs fine. Will not idle after running for a while. Will not restart when hot. Will start after the saw cools down.


I had a 2 cycle snow thrower that acted similarly. It needed a new diaphragm. When they get old they act up. I could never see a physical difference between the good and bad one but the new one fixed it. It's a flat rubber part that is in the carburetor. Call Sears parts or visit them on-line to get a parts breakdown of the carb.

What is a muffler safety shut off on a chain saw?


Never heard of a "muffler safety shut off". The chain brake handle sits above the muffler, could this be the safety part you are looking for?

Fuel lines on craftsman chain saw


go to the website and see if you can download a manual
most saws have 2 lines fuel in and a return
the fuel in line is the one that goes in the tank and has a filter on it
hold you finger over the fuel line on carb and pull cord, the one that sucks is your fuel in, the one that blows air out is your return

I have a 18" Craftsman gas chain saw. It will not keep running, after two or three cuts it just stops and cannot be started again until it sits for 15 to 20 minutes. I have cleaned the air filter and...


Try removing the fuel cap for a moment, then try restart. If ok, check the fuel vent for plugging. Check the fuel filter for plugging. Inspect the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Check for spark when it stops--it may be the ignition module failing when hot. Check for sawdust and dirt plugging the ventilation system--blow it out with compressed air. Does the engine 4-stroke at speed when not cutting, but does 2-stroke when cutting? Make sure the chain is being oiled while running. Hope this helps!

Poulan oiler don't work


Common problem with Poulan and Craftsman gas saws. Take off the chain and chain guide and clean out all the saw dust etc. Start saw without chain and look for port where there are signs of oil. If port is clear of sawdust, then it is likely the pump which is located behind the chain break assembly. you can get the diagram on Poulan website and the replacement pump will cost about $15 - $20 to replace yours.
