Poulan chain saw P3314

Saw will not start. Have emptied all gas and started with fresh mix. Also changed spark plug with new and pre-gapped. New air filter. Have cleaned contacts of flywheel and housing with electronics cleaner to remove any oil or dirt that may be there. Have gone through the starting sequince with the bulb primer, etc. Am now at wits end and the thing will still not start.
HELP!!!!!

have done the following:
fresh gas mix-dumped all old gas
changed spark plug with pre-gapped new plug
changed air filter with new
cleaned contacts on flywheel and saw-sprayed with electronics cleaner to remove dirt and oil, etc. looks clean.
have gone through starting proceedures, ie. pump bulb, full choke, half choke, no choke.
still this saw will not start.
was cutting log when saw quit. thought it just got to worm and let it sit a while and has not started since.
sure need help on this.

the old ignition number is 530039198 and MA-15. The new ignition number is 530052277 and MA-24. Are these two units compatible for the same saw? I bought the new one from a dealer that pulled this from the web site but with the difference in part numbers i'm not sure whether or not these are comparable with each other.

    I have the same problem. I put in a new carb. I got it started a few times but shut off after 5 to 7 seconds. Perhaps it is my ignition switch. Where is it located in the saw?

According to Sear partsdiect.com "Manufacturer authorized substitution: 530052277 may differ in appearance, but is a functional equivalent to prior parts including 530039198." I'm going to try cleaning any elctrical contacts n the flywheel assy first then if thatoes't do it I'll order the ignition module. Mine will eventualy start but I'm having to pullit about 30 times, literally, and I wke up durng the night my arms aches so badly! Pullthe top cover and the module is a the end of the spark lug wire. Looks like it's only held in with a couple of screws.

New spark plug plus new air and fuel filter. Chainsaw will not start or even fire.


If there is a good spark and fuel getting to the plug there are only two reasons why it will not fire, sheared flywheel key knocking the timing out, or it has partly seized and has low compression.

Saw will not run or start...set ignition module gap, disconnected kill switch wire because there was no spark...Put in new spark plug, got spark..Primed for gas and set choke as per instructions...Would...


Often the cause is a failed fuel pump diaphram. Rebuild the carb... kits about $20. The diaphram works from engine vacuum pulses. Also the little flap type check valves go bad... the ethanol in gas doesn't help this problem...

Wont start


Remove the spark plug and check for spark. If snappy and blue with a fresh plug gapped at 0.020", then pour a little fuel mix into the plug hole and try for start. If it pops or runs for a few seconds, then look for fuel delivery problems. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other problems. If no help, remove the carburetor, disassemble and clean the interior with spray carburetor cleaner. Inspect the diaphragm in the lower chamber for flexibility with no holes or cracks. Make sure the fuel is fresh and properly mixed with a modern synthetic saw oil. Be sure to shake the container thoroughly each time time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Hope this helps!

Poulan 2375le chain saw. just replaced primer bulb, gas lines and diaphram. also has new gas and spark plug. will fire up but wont stay cranked especially when I mash the throttle. please help..


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Be sure the fuel and oil mix is thoroughly shaken just before filling the tank each time to prevent oil starvation. Set the plug gap to 0.020" and test the spark for being blue and snappy. If weak looking, remove the left side engine cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Turn the flywheel so that the magnets are just under the module poles, insert a thin business card into the gaps, loosen the module screws to allow the poles to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws, turn the flywheel somewhat to remove the card, then turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close up further. Replace the cover and retest spark--if ok, try for start. Hope this helps!

Doesn't want to start. Replace carb and ran for few seconds, Make you think that it is not getting gas, but pouring gas into spark plug does not help and drying spark plug dose not help. Spark appears...


The spark should be blue and snappy. Try a new plug--any help? If not, it may need a new ignition module. Check the flywheel magnets--they should be quite strong. The module gap with the magnets underneath the poles should be about business card thickness. Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Hope this gets it running!

Need the know the correct H and L settings for our Poulan P3314 14 in. Gas Chainsaw - 33CC. The chainsaw will not idle.


There are no hard and fast settings.
The initial starting point "H" and "L" are 1.5 turns CCW from lightly seated.
The"T" adjustment enters here too (idle speed) and there is initial setting without a tach, depending on age may not be any initial "T" setting.
The "L" needle is primarily idle performance (not speed) and acceleration to full throttle.
The "H" is mostly performance at speed, but all are interconnected.

Fresh mix of fuel. Put ALL of the old mix in any 4 cycle and start new. I suggest 50:1 regardless of what your manual says. This is the best performance adjustment I have found.
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.
  • Clean the spark arrestor and muffler; if the saw cannot exhale it cannot inhale.
  • There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full - may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.
If push comes to shove a local saw shop (I prefer Stihl mechanics and do not own a Stihl) should be considered.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

Saw does not idle and is hard to start. It is a P3314 Poulan


You have gum in your carbeurator.
You can try a carb. cleaner that you add to the gas. I likve one called seafoam. You add one ounce per gallon of fuel.

Also, you must have a good clean spark plug, and a clean air filter. The spark, the fuel, and the air all contribute to an easy start and a good idle. If you havn't changed the spark plug lately do so, same with the air filter.
