Question about Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"

1 Answer

Poulan 3700 will not keep running when you open the choke.

I just had the carb rebuilt, a new gas filter and plug but when you push in the choke in the run position and give it gas, it dies. Will run great when the choke is in the mid position.

The prob is at the base of the carb. Its sucking air. Be certain to install a new gasket, making sure the both services are very clean. And the mounting bolts tightened equally! Frankster016

Won stay running


Needs a carb adjustment, cleaning, or possible rebuilt. Try adding a little seafoam and running at half choke for about 5 mins or longer this may clean it up nicely. also check the spark plug.

Poulan saw wont run


Clean the muffler spark arrestor screen and check the cylinder port for carbon build-up at the upper edge. Try presetting both carburetor H and L adjustments (from lightly CW stops) 1-1/2 turns CCW each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle wide open and adjust H CW until the engine speed increases, but still 4-stroking. Correct setting is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L for smoother running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed to keep the engine running, but doesn't try to move the chain. You may have to look closer at your carburetor if the above doesn't help. Go to:

for an excellent article (but poor pix) on Walbro carburetors, but related to most all 2-stroke carburetors. Hope this helps!
