Fuel restriction could be dirty in tank filter, or high idle screw needs to be adjusted. Do this by turning it counter clock wise 1/8 turn at a time start and check for improvement after each adjustment.

Oiler mechanism to bar of ryobi 40cc 10532 18 inch


I get asked this question a lot , im gonna have to make a video on this subject someday .
but here:
1st ck your oil viscosity/SAE it should be 30 and say bar/chain oil
next dump out entire oil tank and wash out with kerosene (you'd be surprised what I seen come out)
then remove bar and chain , locate oil outlet it's in body of saw near adjustment screw , use a small can of air to blow in this port softly , use a touch more of kero to clean this all out , refill tank with proper oil !!!! and run saw (no need to put bar/chain back on yet ) might take several minutes but oil should start to flow out hole !! stop saw and reinstall bar/chain then run again .. fixed !! if no oil comes out ever your oil pump is gonna need some fixing

for a low cost oil I use filtered used motor oil cut down with a dab of kerosene

Generally this is a fuel / air ratio problem. Usually it can be solved by a carb adjustment. On the carb there are usually two screws, one marked low or L , the other marked high or H. Low is your adjustment for idle mixture, high is for mixture at full throttle. The saw should Always be adjusted to run well during the cut. Make adjustments a little at a time, then try The saw. Continue small adjustments untill the saw is performing well at full throttle while Cutting.

I have a new Echo CS-400. It starts easily, and appears to run aat full power, however, It is very hard to cut logs. I have to exert a great deal of force to saw through a six inch log. The chain is new...


Are you certain you have the chain on the right direction? Sounds like you may have it on backwards. A new chain should cut easily almost without effort unless it has come in contact with stones or metal or something equally hard. Hope this helps

Please tell me your closest technitian in Norcross; Georgia 30093 My Chain Saw is not turning on


i cant tell you were to look but i can tell you what to look at on the saw to try to fix it,,,,first change the spark plug and check for a spark by holding the plug on the cylinder head and cranking the motor over,,,hold it down tight or it will bite you?
then check you have a clean carb and that the fule pump rubber is good,,its under the cover were the fule pipe fit on the carb clean the carb out as well,,clean the air filter out,, then give it a go starting her up,,if she runs but keeps stoping get a small screw driver and find the two small screws on the side of the cover,, one is for slow running,,one it for top reves,,,undo the slow running screw till the saw ticks over without stoping,,then hold the triger full open and addjust the full throtol screw till it wont rev any higher,,,dont have the chain brake on at all so watch your self,,,,,cutting a leg off hurts im told????

Remove the bar and chain. Start the engine and observe the side of the engine where the bar fits to it. The oil port there should ooze oil out when the engine runs fairly fast. If nothing, then investigate the filter within the oil tank for plugging, the oil line from the tank to the pump for any damage or decay, and the oil pump itself. The pump should discharge directly to the port that the bar receives. If oil did ooze out of the port on the first test, then clean the oil passages in the bar end--two small channels that run from each large hole out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the entire chain groove. Check the sprocket on the other end for fairly free turning--oil it's bearing. Examine the chain carefully--if it got so hot that it turned the teeth blue--replace the chain, it has lost it's tempering. Assemble bar and chain--adjust the chain so that the lower side doesn't droop from the bar, and you can turn the chain by hand. The teeth cut toward you on the bottom run. If the old chain is being reused, sharpen the chain carefully so that it cuts quickly without undue effort on your or the engine's part. Hope this helps!

Chainsaw dies out when gas is pressed to full throtle


Carb needs teardown and cleaning. May be a stuck float or clogged jet.
Spraycleaner just wont cut it.

Chain saw will idle, but not run at full throtle


First, check the air filter and clean it well. Then make sure the spark plug is clean and gapped properly.

Then prime, start it up, and allow it to idle, even using the trigger to make it fast idle if you can. Using a small thin screwdiver, turn the high speed idle screw on the carb in small increments to the right, kepping the speed up on the trhrottle.

The idea is to screw it out until it sputters, then screw it a half turn back in. If it doesn't smooth out when turning it to the right, try going to the left.

Afterwards you may find it doesn't run at low throttle well. If not, try the same thing starting to turn left until it smooths out. If it doesn't, screw to the right. Again, the idea is to go until it sounds rough, then back off a half turn.

You should be able to adjust it to the point where you can open the throttle all the way with smooth sure throttle increase.

Poulan Wild Thing starts great but as soon as I try to cut it die


The carb low idle needs to be adjusted this is fairly common among the Poulan chain saws. Once you adjust the low idle from factory setting it will work
