When you pull the trigger on your saw lhile looking near the carb you will see the throttle plate moving back and forth as you pull it. The end of it usually rests against a screw with a spring. Screw the screw in some so the throttle doesn't come back so far.

Carb ajustment


Only Info I see is "Homelite Chain Saws" - not much to go on.
Most saws have two carb adjustment screws, Hi, and Lo.
Assuming the saw will start and run enough to warm up, then
adjust the Lo screw in, clockwise, until the motor starts to slow down,
turn only about 1/8 turn at a time. From the point where it starts to slow down, turn it out about 1/4 turn. This should give you a decent idle. Now pull the throttle, and see what happens.
A - Saw runs up to speed, but dies off, or starts to slow on it's own.
turn Hi idle screw out about 1/4 turn.
B - Saw speeds up, but runs sluggish, fat - not real hi end.
Turn Hi screw IN, about 1/8 or so, and try again, or adjust
while running at full throttle. (best way)
IF it won't run well, try turning both screws all the way in to seat them, then come back out about 1-1/2 to 2 turns. this should get you in the ballpark to set things up as above.

Once the saw is running well, adjust the idle screw to a smooth idle but slow enough that the chain stops moving.

Stay safe

Hi how to tune homelite 330 chain saw carby, idle


Before adjusting anything, check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Tighten all carburetor fasteners. Make sure you have fresh fuel mix in the tank. Does the primer bulb pull fresh fuel into itself when pumped? Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow it to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Proper final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW for fairly good idle, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to run. Hope this helps!

33cc 14 inch homelite chainsaw, wont rev up to high speed, will start and idle fine, but when you try to rev it up it just dies. I have changed the plug, cleaned the muffler, changed the fuel, rebuilt the...


Morning William:
Acceleration is the "L" needle, try 1/8 turn CCW. No better 3/16 CW.
Please install a new filter on the fuel line, you will be beat to death with carburetor overhauls if you do not.

  • CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
  • Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
  • Clean the spark arrestor and muffler; if the saw cannot exhale it cannot inhale.
  • There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full - may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

Runs but wont idle / Homelite330


Try adjusting the idle. The will be a couple adjustment screws, there will be an (H) and (L) you will need to turn the (L) First tighten the sdcrew completely then turn it 1-1/4 turns. This will be a good to start. Then just turn it small amounts until you get it to idle. Also there should be an idle adjustment you can adjust.
