1. set on/off switch to on, 2.prime it first, push the bubble about 6x 3. pull the choke all the way out, 4.pull trigger and string simultaneously 5. push in choke halfway try again, pull choke back out and etc. should start after repeating steps 4 and 5 3x or 4x when it does start, pump the gas at half choke then let it idle untill it stops push in choke all the way and it should start. don't forget to check the safety bar in front of the handle usually works with most gas operated tools

If the saw got overheated it would have that problem. Take a air hose and blow the dirt off the saw. You probably have to take a cover off and blow compressed air around the cylinder fins to clean that area. Also make sure you are using the correct gass oil mixture for the saw.

Poulan prolink pp335 wont start


In case anyone else hits this question, I had this weed eater and all of the attachments. I had it in my garage for a good 7 years, and it had gas in it 7 years ago.. I've known for some time that it now had no gas in it & that it wouldn't be easy to start if it worked at all.. I put some normal gas in it and dripped a bit of oil into the gas because i didn't have a can properly mixed and didn't want to oil up my lawn mower gas.. I had a guy cutting my lawn for the past 7 years but he recently disappeared..

I primed the weed eater and attempted to start it for a good 20 minutes yesterday to no joy.. I put it away and figured i'd try it again and more in depth today when I had more time. I wanted to take the spark plug out and make sure it was clean, etc.

On attempting to remove the spark plug, I couldn't find a wrench or socket that would work to do so, so I just reconnected spark plug cable and figured I'd give the pull start method another try.. I pumped more gas into the primer and attempted to start it normally a few times.. It wouldn't even attempt to fire. Just for fun since I was going to have to throw this and tons of never-been-opened attachments away, i decided to try something goofy (in my opinion) and squeezed the trigger as far as it would go (which disengages the choke feature..) and gave it a few pulls on the cord.. It attempted to fire a few times, then it fired! It worked very well although it was a little bit thick on the smoke for a bit..

Maybe this answer will help someone else who hits the problem of leaving gas in a weed eater for years.. don't use the choke feature to start it.. start it at full throttle with the primer perhaps flooded a little bit..

If it started yesterday you might have fouled the spark plug or check crank case, air intake system, and exaust pipe for dirt dobber nests if both have sat up for some time I had this problem when I bought one of the same 4wheelers what happens is the crank case builds pressure also the exaust builds pressure and will not let the motor run check for ignition spark parts are vary cheap for the pocket minies check ebay i got a exaust pipe for 13 dollers 49cc also check motosports max.com or type Kazuma.com in your search bar

No floats in chainsaw carbs. Severly flooded most common start problem with chainsaws. Read and follow the start procedure in your manual. Don't use choke on flooded engine (may set fast idle, set then turn off)!

i'll bet you have it flooded. Try a dry sparkplug. pull it over a few times with the plug out to help dry the cylinder out too

McCulloch 338 wont start


I assume that you mean it won't run rather than a locked engine. Check for spark at the spark plug. Is it wet with fuel? Is the air cleaner free of sawdust and dirt? If it has flooded, pull through with wide open throttle and no choke.
A locked engine could be a hydraulic lock (a lot of fuel in the upper cylinder) which should be expelled when pulling the starter cord with the spark plug removed, or a mechanical problem like a thrown connecting rod, broken piston or loose ignition components under the flywheel, or a frozen starter mechanism. Good luck!
