Question about Poulan 2150 Chainsaws

1 Answer

I have a 2150 that I just replaced all the fuel lines. The settings have not been touched but the carb has been taken apart,cleaned and air blown through all passageways. I can start the saw ok and it runs with the choke on and will cut wood sort of. If i close the choke the saw shuts off-also the trigger has little effect.What should I do?

SOURCE: Poulan PP446T Pole Saw. Will run only if choke is

It is running lean. There is an air leak somewhere allowing to much air into the cylinder or crankcase. Continuing to operate lean may cause failure. If fuel delivery lines have no pin holes or cracks probably time for some professional help (pressure tests). Remove clean and reinstall the muffler (carbon fouling can also cause this). If the saw cannot exhale, it cannot inhale. HTH

Vespa et4 125 fuel starvation? Cuts out on me... Help?

Check the main jet is set up correctly. Make sure there is plenty of fuel in the float chamber, if not check the fuel line again. There should be a good amount of petrol flowing from the carb feed pipe with the fuel tap on. It should fill a pint container fairly quickly.

Echo Chainsaw will not stay running? has been used a few times in the last 6 months!

Because the unit fires and runs for about 6-8 seconds the issue sounds to be fuel delivery problem. If you changed the fuel lines and checked the diaphragm, was the old lines bad? The carburetor could have sucked up some of the old fuel lines. You may need to change the carburetor.

Can,t get carb off to clean ETQIN1800i

There are two plastic nipples that are pressed into rubber grommets, just grab the bottom and pull straight out while wiggling the air box assembly. Make sure you pull the rubber fuel lines out of the way so that the air box cam come straight out. The resistance you are feeling is either the rubber grommets or the fuel lines in the way. I have had mine apart a dozen times!

MS 310 chainsaw wont keep running

If you have a spark and compression it only leaves fueling/air problem.
to reset carb to standard settings screw both H and L screws right in. then unscrew the anticlockwise (L) 1 full turn. (H) 3/4of a turn, that should set it back to standard settings.

I have a 2150 super clean 2.1cc. i will fire and start up. it runs for about 1 or 2 seconds and dies. i have changed gas and plug. cleaned air filter.

remove and clean out your carb and inspect the diaphram and if it is stiff or winkled bad replace it, this ethanol that they put in gas raises havoc with fuel lines and gums up carbs and makes diaphrams stiff, I would put a kit in it and also replace your primer bulb while you are at it

I have a 2150 poulan chain saw and my fuel lines are rotten and came apart, now I don't know what line goes where can you help me? I want to replace all of them.

You should have three hoses, the hose from the fuel tank with the filter on the end goes to the main fuel inlet on the carb, this is closest to the pump cover on the carb ( alluminium cover held with one screw ) the other connector on the carb has a pipe to the shortest connector on the back of the primer ( suction side ) the longer connector on the back of the primer ( pressure side ) has a hose that returns to the fuel tank, so the primer pulls fuel from the carb, and dumps it back to the tank

I have a 2005 superglide efi that hasn't been cranked for 10 months,I charged the battery and put fresh gas in it.It want crank it's not getting fuel.You can spray fuel in the intake throat and it will...

You are due for a fuel system cleaning. With the bike sitting, you have gotten plaque build up in the lines, and the carb. Start by removing the lines and soaking in carb cleaner then blow out with compressed air. An even better idea would be to replace the lines because the plaque could loosen and make it to a jet. You will need to replace the inline filter and make sure the screen in your tank is clean and free of debris. The carb will likely need to be removed, taken apart and soaked in carb cleaner as well. It will need to be blown out with compressed air...especially the jets. Be careful not to blow out needle seats unless you have replacements, which would be a good idea as well. Replace the gasket that goes from the carb to the intake to eliminate the possibility of pulling air there. Good Luck! I hope you find this very helpful!

Not getting enough gas to the carb have to run choke 3/4 engaged

Sounds like a restriction in your carb, not getting enough gas. I would clean out the carb again.
