Question about Homelite Consumer Products 9.0 Amp, 14 In. Chainsaw
Idle screw backed out all the way, throtle is closed, air cleaner is clean.
Engine still runs away at very , very high RPM. so high of RPM the kill switch won't shut it off. I used the chain on a log to slow the engine down and then the kill switch works.
Same problem here.... Rebuilt the carb.... Changed the plug, cleaned air filter... Same problem......

Check the flapper valve at the rear of carb.possile it is loose letting in too much fuel.

Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
