    How do you adjust the low speed and high speed adjustments on carbureator. I have taken cover off and can't see any way to make the adjustment.

Start with a new sparkplug, then check the gasket on the carb. The bolts that hold the carb on should be tightened equally. If it is a very old saw the crank seals could be the prob too! Hope not! Frankster016

Chainsaw wont stay running


if it starts (maybe idles) but then dies when giving it gas it sure looks like its a carb problem , most likely dirt in the high speed jet , but could be a dirty fuel filter as well and that's inside the fuel tank

How to set the high and low


Turn mixture screws completely in gently, then wind out 11/2 turns each. The saw will be able to start and run at this point. On idle wind Low clockwise till motor starts to die then anti-clockwise 3/4 turn.
High speed is a little more difficult, On full revs wind clockwise till saw starts to rev out (lean Mixture) then back till the sound starts to bubble.

After the chainsaw starts up it will idle the min. you disengauge the high idle on the choke it runs for about 3 seconds and then dies like it ran out of gas


When it dies pull out the spark plug. If it is dry it is getting not enough fuel,wet is too much .Adjust the L needle till it stays running.

My e series 142 spins the chain and idles insanely fast when I have the choke pulled out. Then when I give it throttle it calms down and then I can barely keep it idling. with throttle all the way pulled...


Check air filter- clean or replace, Make sure you have fresh fuel, A new spark while you are giving it a service, Do you know how to tune the saw? Start with basic settings 1 turn on the low and 1 turn on the high And adjust from there, You might have turned the idle up too high. The choke should always be fully in when saw is running. Hope this is a good start

Wont stay running. it idles kinda high. stays running with the choke on. pull the trigger 2 giv it gas it dies.


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other problems. The idle speed screw (turned CCW) will slow the engine down. Hope this helps!

Need intructions on carberator adjustments for mac-3514 35cc/cm3 runs but hard to start after using it for few minutes.


There is a low speed jet and high speed. Low speed sets the idle or stays running without feathering the throttle./// When setting high speed, hold the throttle wide open until engine revs high, then turn back in(at least ¼ turn) to slow the engine which in turn gives the engine more gas and runs cooler. If you have it too lean on the high speed, it will be hot and hard to start. Sometimes using 40 to 1 mix helps with starting, especially on older chainsaw. good luck

Homelite chainsaw won't stay running


Make sure you are using fresh fuel mix (50:1 ratio). Don't use boat motor oil in a saw--only modern synthetics made for saws. Always premix the oil and fuel thoroughly before adding to the saw. Check the fuel filter for plugging and the condition of all fuel lines, plus the primer bulb condition. Check all carburetor fasteners for tightness. Make sure the air filter and muffler are not plugged. If still no help, you may need to service the carburetor. For an excellent article on Walbro carburetors, go to: http://www.drystacked.com Pay particular attention to the placement of the lower diaphragm and the cover gasket--interchanging positions of them cause many headaches. Adjustment of the two jet screws require a special 'D' screwdriver which may necessitate a trip to a servicing dealer for adjustment. Hope this helps!

Need carb h/l ajustemts and idle controle ajustment


This does take a little time to get it just right. Start at one full turn for the h and l. Work on the high first and after you get the H running work on the Low. They have to work together. So if you get it to idle and run at full throttle but it hesitates when you pull the trigger just adjust the low a little higher.
