WHERE CAN I FIND A MANUAL FOR THIS CHAIN SAW MODEL UT10753


You did not say who the manufacturer is of your chain saw. Is it made by Homelite?

Go to this website: http://www.manualsonline.com/ and type in your chain saw manufacture and model

What oil to gas ratio


Most newer chainsaws and small 2 stroke gas gardening tools use a 50:1 older chain saws use 40:1. If you don't know just use 40:1 your saw will only smoke a bite. Use hi test gas and good quality oil

I would find a good lawn and garden shop that sells that brand of chain saws. Not a department store.Try your yellow pages under saws.

Carb ajustment


Only Info I see is "Homelite Chain Saws" - not much to go on.
Most saws have two carb adjustment screws, Hi, and Lo.
Assuming the saw will start and run enough to warm up, then
adjust the Lo screw in, clockwise, until the motor starts to slow down,
turn only about 1/8 turn at a time. From the point where it starts to slow down, turn it out about 1/4 turn. This should give you a decent idle. Now pull the throttle, and see what happens.
A - Saw runs up to speed, but dies off, or starts to slow on it's own.
turn Hi idle screw out about 1/4 turn.
B - Saw speeds up, but runs sluggish, fat - not real hi end.
Turn Hi screw IN, about 1/8 or so, and try again, or adjust
while running at full throttle. (best way)
IF it won't run well, try turning both screws all the way in to seat them, then come back out about 1-1/2 to 2 turns. this should get you in the ballpark to set things up as above.

Once the saw is running well, adjust the idle screw to a smooth idle but slow enough that the chain stops moving.

Stay safe

How to change the chain on chainsaw


Most saws are pretty much the same procedure.....here's a decent link. Some saws will give trouble if the brake is on when you remove the side cover so make sure the chain moves freely before removing the side cover.
Here's one on tensioning the chain...

Does anyone know the carb. setting for a Homelite 45cc chainsaw. Or set up procedure??


Start 1.5 CCW from lighty seated then do as the link suggests.
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.

There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.

Runs well untill it gets hot. then cuts out


If it's the little xl model, it's probably the ignition coil breaking down when it gets hot and therefore it can't and won't be able to handle a load. Also, scarred pistons skirt or rings could also be some of the problem here. Make sure your mix for a Homelite saw is 40:1 not 50:1 like most saws are. Homelite seems to run better with a heavier oil mixture. Good luck.
