Chainsaw loses power

Up until yesterday, my Mcullock 332 chainsaw was fine, but now as I go to cut a log, the power goes and it cuts out. There is not a problem restarting, but i have to leave the choke out otherwise it stops.

Thanks,

Martyn

Check if it has any type of muffler screen. carbon builds up on the screen and periodically it needs to be cleaned.

Martyn, It sounds like you have Carby problems. Try squirting some carby cleaner down into carby where ever you can reach with the spray, if this does not fix it, you will need to remove the carby & take it apart, clean it all really well, then put it back together, whilst you have it apart, check that the inlet needle is not grooved, if it is grooved, you'll need to replace it. Good Luck. Stevo.

Husqvarna 362xp Seems to lose power and struggle with felling back cut on big trees,20 inch bar on it,but seems fine when cross cutting big trees,any ideas please


It sounds like a "positional-related" problem, in which the first area I'd look at would be the fuel line in the tank and fuel filter. Hook and fish the line out and examine it (no kinks, cuts, hangs freely in tank) & clean/replace the fuel filter as that is the most likely culprit.

My poulan 18 inch chain saws blade turns but only cuts in about an inch and won't go any farther. It's two days old and worked fine cutting the first 2 trees down.


It sounds like the chain does want sharpening, it depends on what you are cutting ( type of timber, dirty timber,burnt timber etc ) as to how long before it needs sharpening, if the chain comes into contact with the ground below the tree it will lose its edge instantly.

The chain needs sharpened or replaced. You can purchase the tools from any hardware store, and sharpen the chain yourself in about 15 minutes. Don't worry, your saw is just fine!

Chain saw starts fine, idles fine, and powers up fine when not cutting a long how when starting to cut a log it bogs down and dies. Does anyone know how to fix this problem or what’s wrong with the chain...


Two things that can cause this problem. 1. Your carburetor is not set properly and is not letting the engine get enough fuel under a load. 2. Your chain is binding when you put the chain bar down on the log. Make sure your front chain sproket is turning free and is not too sloppy.

Runs fine untill you cut then loses power


Couple things to try. Fresh fuel and carburetor adjustment. Usually the high speed jet causes this. Starvation for fuel.

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.

Husqvarna 345 power loss and vibrates


Replace the bar. Your bar has gone bad and that is why you are losing power. Bars are made by the chain saws to be completely oiled at all times. When the bar does not get oil the bar will start to warp and that is what will cause you lack of power when trying to due a top cut
