    I have exactly the same problem. I have used the saw for about 2-3 hours since I bought it in August and now suddenly the chain will not turn. The chain brake is not engaged.

    Run fine but the chain will not move. I can turn the shaft by hand but it is difficult.

What do the adjustment screws on a poulan pro chainsaw carburetor look like

I'm not sure about the poulan, but they should just be little holes in the side cover there with a hi and low or H and L, If the engine won't stay running, open the low jet just a hair at a time, no more than 1/4 turn, try throttling it a minute, then see if it will run, If not try it again, do not open it up more than 1/4 turn at a time, the same goes for the high speed jet, if it won't rev. Open it up a hair at a time. Sometimes it will act totally wrong and have to be redone, close both screws, open both screws up 1 turn, then try it again. It is a small flat blade scewdriver just big enough to get in the hole, check it out. Hope this helps.

Poulan has had a notorious carb issue over the past couple of years. Products roll off the line needing a carb adjustment right out of the box. One adjustment is covered under the warranty at a service dealer near you. Look up your closest dealer at This is not something consumer serviceable as it requires a special tool.

Most poulan chain saw have three screws idle, high, and low.. if you look air filter cover you will usually see three holes and the high and low will usually have plastic covers on it.. adjust the low 1/4 of a turn and the idle screw in about 1/4 or until the idle picks up...

Chain saw runs great until I start cutting tree, then it stalls out. I've only used it three times since I bought it last month.

I would say its running too lean, start by replacing the fuel filter in the tank, check the fuel hose up to the carb for leakage, if this does not help unscrew the H screw on the carb 1/4 turn anti clockwise, this will richen the fuel mixture, does this help the running? if not there may well be a fuel blockage in the carb.

Need to know gas oil ratio on poulan micro xxv deluxe

Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 6 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

Where can i order a handle for a 14in Pullan gas

A few days ago i would have you here: (poulan's part outlet)
They have locked the site to non dealers. Please go here:
To register your displeasure. They should be willing to help you with their product.
It used to be fairly simple to find parts. This new system will hurt their sales IMO. Tell them that! HTH

what kind of saw is it? and if this is the problem u might have over primed the button on the side thats part of getting the saw started and maby flooded the carb and could be the reason why its hard to get it goin. Doesnt take much to flood a small motor. Oh and almost forgot do u have the right mixure of ur fuel? for my saw its 40:1.
