    It seems like it is a simple solution. It's like a drill when you squeeze trigger and push button and the drill runs with out squeezing trigger

Model pp4218 throttle stuck open

I assume you are referring to a pullen pro chain saw. If so, the cable that links from the trigger to the carburetor is stuck. This can happen due to trash and dirt stuck in the trigger area, or the carburetor needs cleaning. Or the cable or wire to the carburetor is bent. See if the connection between the trigger and carb moves freely when not running.

Why does homelite chainsaw runs wide open?

if your saying your saw runs full speed as soon as it starts , one of two things is happening :
(1) your low speed carb jet is too far open
(2) your throttle trigger has disconnected or become stuck from your carburetor and now the throttle blade inside carb is full open

Toro 6.5 model 20016 throttle stuck open

I believe that is the governor spring you are referring to. YES it needs to be replaced, before you sustain permanent engine damage.

The saw starts but not easy runs for about 5

Either the throttle is stuck wide open, or there is a large air leak behind the carburetor to cylinder connection. Make sure the carburetor is securely fastened. If it has a flexible connection to the engine, remove the connection and inspect it for tears or holes. Watch the throttle arm on the carburetor which should move from the idle speed screw to the full throttle limit casting/post when the trigger is pulled and released. If it hangs near full throttle, then remove the trigger mechanism (make notes of the parts positions) and clean out any dirt/sawdust. Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Check the H needle adjustment after repairs by running the engine at full speed after warm up--the engine should 4-stroke unloaded, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Check the condition of all of the fuel lines including the line to the filter in the tank looking for decay or other damage. Use original rubber lines for replacement, not plastic substitute. Hope some of this helps!

How to adjust a macCullouch 110 chain saw carb?

Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting which should allow the engine to start and run. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Start the engine and allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H needle CW until the engine begins to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Proper final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes when running free, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW for smoother idle, yet still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops moving, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

Adjustment for carbuerator on Poulan Pro Chain Saw/ Model 221/ 40

Are the jet screws fitted with slot heads or 'D' heads? 'D' heads require a special tool to adjust and are not available to the general public, so you are stuck with taking the saw to a servicing dealer for adjustment. Slot head screws can be turned with a small flat-blade driver by anyone. In case you have owner-adjustable heads, try the following: Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back each out 1-1/2 turns CCW. The engine should run with this basic setting. Warm up the saw, then pull the throttle full on. Turn H needle CW until the engine speeds up somewhat, but still 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L CW until the engine idles fairly well, but allows the engine to 'follow-the-throttle'. Adjust idle speed so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

Model 445 chainsaw. Was cutting all day and no problem. Good gasoline, Husqvarna 2 cycle oil. All of a sudden started racing like the carb was stuck full open even when throttle trigger released. Then...

Engine speeding up on idle is normally due to an air leak, check the carb securing screws are tight, if you have a leaking crank seal it will be a shop repair.

Trigger on poulan 3314 does not control speed. Saw runs at constant speed, somewhere above fast idle.

Open the cover over the air cleaner so that you can observe the action of the throttle cable and carburetor lever. Operate the throttle--normal action is lever wide open at full throttle and lever resting on idle stop screw when throttle released. If action is restricted, disassemble the handle where the throttle trigger is located and clean out the sawdust. Recheck throttle action. The throttle cable shouldn't require lubrication. Clean the air filter and check the operation of the engine. Hope this helps!

As soon as my 10 hp Briggs & stratton engine starts, it goes to full throttle. I have no control

The engine speed is controlled by a governor and throttle position. There is a spring that holds the throttle (butterfly valve) against the slower position. When the motor is under load' the governor exerts force to open the throttle position. Make sure that all of the components are clean and not binding. Look for a broken or disconnected spring. It is also possible that the governor is stuck in the demand full throttle position.
