Question about Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"

2 Answers

I have a cub cadet commercial chainsaw that seems to be flooding out when I give it gas. The saw was running fine and just started running rough. Does anyone have a helpful solution to this problem? I already put a new spark plug in it. Thanks

2 possable solutions one some of the carb adjustment screws on those start to shimy easy fix but the there is only one tool for those carbs it's 10-12 dollars a peice or 2 you have a slight crack in the intake line allowing extra fuel into the carb chamber. i'd check the carb adjustment though my two ran fantastic at factory setting till after about 50 hours then they liked to run with a little more air.

This is a tedious task but you can do it without taking anything apart the best think I've found is to go to small engine parts store and get the same size (fuel line) don't let them give you air line . Find a good long pair of tweezers and a bench vise you can bend them enough to be able to get into the fuel tank and connect the fuel line and away you go.

Flooding petrol

Saw is getting flooded? Does the saw run? After a few pulls with the choke on the saw should fire, Open the choke and in a couple of pulls the saw should start. If you have flooded thee saw you can hold it on the ground with your knee, hold full throttle and in up to ten pulls it should go with a slow start and some smoke, give it rev and away you go. Hope this helps

Saw runs fine for about 15 minutes,then the idle speeds up,then it dies,almost like it is flooding

Do aclean or overhaul of all fuel components.Change the spark plug or the coil aka=spark plug cable.But if your saw in lees the 2 yrs you need to follow the starting guide in order to avoid flooding.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

I have a Jonsered 2065 chainsaw. It will crank fine, when you give it gas it runs rough, it wont pick up speed, it spits and goes dead. We put a new spark plug on it, checked the carb., flywheel. It seems...

If the previous suggestion doesn't fix it, and it's running fine at idle, you should let it warm up well before giving it gas. If it is warmed up and still dies, your high-speed needle may be set too lean or the fuel passage may be partially clogged. Dying when the throttle is applied usually means the fuel setting is too lean or a jet is clogged.
