SOURCE: Echo cs-341 stalls out when cutting sideways

Make sure the fuel filter is indeed attached to the fuel line in the tank and pushed down to the bottom of the tank.

Check your anti kick back bar across the top. If you bumped it forward will not start.

Hi jeffery webb... Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this: Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug. You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope...watching the plug for spark. If you are getting a nice blue spark then skip A below and go to B. A...If you do not get a nice blue spark then you may need to replace the electronic module. Note: If you have to replace the module be sure to measure the position it is in, it is critical to starting. B...Also take some fine grit sandpaper (not emery) and lightly sand the flywheel where the magnet is located to clean any rust or corrosion from the magnet area. Then follow the procedure below: ********************************************************************** Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible. Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel. Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT. Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor: Write down on a piece of paper or take a picture of how the linkage attaches to your carburetor for later reference when you go to reinstall your carburetor. Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces. That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it. Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using a very small shot of starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that, and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor. Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank. Check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacement. Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one, normally they are located in the fuel tank of chainsaws . When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing to how the lines are connected to the carburetor or take a picture for later reference. Normally the big line will be the line the fuel filter is connected to inside of the tank. The smaller of the two lines is the return to the fuel tank from the carburetor after it is pumped thru the carburetor by the primer bulb. Make sure you are using fresh fuel...and oil if your using a two cycle chainsaw with the oil to the right mixture...too much oil as it can cause hard starting and excessive smoking. If the chainsaw is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank. The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc. When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages. Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable. Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or air passages. Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages. Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from. When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws. But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position. Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper. That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started. Note: The little spring inside of the carburetor goes under the float arm. That is where your fuel inlet needle/float valve is located...on the arm at the end. Normally there is a small indetion in the carburetor base and a small protrusion on the underneath of the float arm where the spring will be in the right postion for installation. The spring will set in the indention and you will install the float arm with the needle/float valve and float rod into position over top of the spring,you will push down until it is in position and then you can tighten the screw that holds the float arm assembly in position. Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem. Please take time to rate me thumbs up

McCullough chainsaw runs backwards at start up in idle. What is the cause ?


2 cycle engines can do this. The engine backfires when starting and it runs in the wrong direction. Shut it down and restart it.

Tip

Chainsaw erratic - starts - won't start - dies at steep angle


My chainsaw was erratic. Sometimes it started and ran just fine and at other times it just refused to start or died as I raised it to cut a limb. What I finally realized is that chainsaws are different than other 2 cycles engine devices - they have to work at many different angles (including straight up). For that reason, the fuel filter that is in the gas tank is weighted to keep it at the bottom of the gas tank as you raise and/or lower the chainsaw.
On my Mccullough, the gas line broke right at the weighted filter, allowing the gas line to flop around. That's why it was erratic and died when I raised it to cut a limb. So, if you have erratic operation, take a minute to check your gas filter and be sure it's still attached to the gas line......

Brand new Echo cs-400 chain saw: The chain spins fast on idle. Should'nt the chain be stationary on idle?


The manual is available here:

http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/ECHO/CS-400-_E

The idle speed of the negine may be too high.
Page 26 of the manual gives instructions for adjusting the speed with the "T" screw on the carburettor.
