Question about Poulan Garden
I hope you are using fresh gas, as when gas gets old from previous season use, it can be the problem. I have seen a spark plug fouling, giving the same results though. I don't know the hours you have run the saw, or the severe use it may have seen. Have you checked air cleaner? fuel supply? If it was set up for a long period of time with old gas, carb may need cleaning.
Hope all these questions stimulate some possible problem resolution

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

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 does happen they quit when hot. More often they just quit.
There are 7 different "2450 Gas Saw Types" here: (Type 1 $25.35)
There is a help link on top that will eventually find someone with a pulse. If you go this way please have your saw within easy reach before calling. HTH
Good for you on the spark test and isolation of the problem. You also listed the make and model. I think I'm in love, LOL.
Thanks, it makes our help easy.

Testimonial: "It appears the spark plug was the problem even though I was getting spark. Just ran it for 20 minutes with a different plug. Runs great!!! Thanks "
Buy an oregon green chain for the saw,much better chain, more teeth,heavier duty,outcut the original chains by far,and can be sharpened many times over.Keep the chain sharp and she should cut straight.Dont over tighten the chain, I tighten mine til I can just lift the bottom of the chain almost completely out of the bar groove.
