Poulan 295 chainsaw won't start when warm

I have a Poulan 295 chainsaw that starts just fine the first time but once it has warmed up and you shut it off or if it dies and you try to start it back up it will not start. Leave it for a couple of hours and it will start again.

Hi

Check the spark plug first (when the engine has warmed and died).If you have a good spark,check the fuel pump from the carb(it shuld not to be tighten).If everything is ok check the seals(they are sealing the engine).Good luck!

It could be a number of things, bad fuel ( stale) engine over heating and causeing vapour lock, or a bad ignition unit, start with fresh fuel, replace the fuel filter in the tank, try just slackeing the fuel cap and try starting again, this will rule out the fuel tank breather, if still no better replace the ignition unit.

My Poulan Pro 295 chain saw starts fine, runs for a few minutes, then stops and will not start until completely cool. What could be my problem?


It sounds very much loke the ignition is playing up when hot, just as a little test when it starts to die slacken off the fuel filler cap does it pick up/re start? if yes it is a fuel tank breather issue, replace the breather.

Does the spark plug get wet with fuel when pulled through? If dry, try spraying a little starting fluid in the plug hole and reinstall the plug. If it pops at least once, you have fuel delivery problems--look for hardened/ cracked fuel lines. Clean the muffler arrestor screen. When the muffler is off, check the condition of the piston skirt and cylinder wall for deep scoring or obvious wear. Make sure the primer button (if equipped) is filling with fuel when pumped a few times. If it doesn't, make sure the bulb is not hard or cracked and check the lines going to and from it. Check the carburetor bolts and nuts for tightness. The fuel filter in the tank could be plugged, fish it out and check. If you have checked all these items, it may be time to clean and rekit the carburetor. Hope this helps!

I suspect the carburetor is full of remnants of the same fluids you found in the tank. If it was my saw I'd take it to the local Stihl dealer for an estimate to repair. I'd expect to pay $40 - 80 for a tune up and repair depending on how many fuel hoses must be replaced. HTH

My Poulan chainsaw is hard to start and will not re-start once it is warm. Any suggestions besides junk it.


Spend $ 40 for a tune up at a local chainsaw seller/mechanic. Most Stihl outlets are very good. It sounds like carburation needs adjustment, but they also do a good visual inspection. Mine get done about every 3 years worth of use. HTH
