While using my 36 cc homelite chainsaw the clutches and rod holding them in place came out of the side of the saw how van I fix this the saw runs great and I don't want ta throw it away if there is a...


Many saws have the clutch just spun onto the threads on the crank, in some operations it can spin off on the over run of the saw, spin it back onto the crank, run the saw a maximum revs and activate the chain brake, do this a few times tis will lock the clutch up tight on the cranck.

Just got a homelite 33cc 14 inch chain saw, do you mix gas and oil on this chain saw?


Yes you do! The ratio is 50:1 fuel to oil. Be sure to use a modern synthetic saw oil available at home centers, hardware stores, and saw dealers. Be sure to use fresh fuel and mix the two in it's own container. Be sure to shake the container thoroughly each time just before refueling to prevent oil starvation in the engine. Don't make up more than one gallon at a time unless sawing is your business. Hope this helps!

New Homelite 16" chain saw is difficult to impossible to start.


Read and follow the start procedure in the manual, most say to open the choke once the saw attempts to start. Most operators miss this or do not hear the cough and flood the saw. Your manual is probably similar, if not successful with the following maybe time to return it. One thing that might impact starting, what is your elevation? Your saw was setup at near sea level, if you 4000' it may need an adjustment. The store where purchased will probably recommend someone if asked.

Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4).
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).

How to adjust high and low settings on carb for a homelite chains


Me know how! Want know who?

I would start with both the "H" and "L" needle valves at 1.5 turns CCW from lightly seated then adjust for performance as follows:
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm
  • 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

Chainsaw dont run right


carb adjustment,hi circuit,bring it to max rpms then richen hi idle side til saw loses a small amount of rpm.This and a tad richer mix ratio will ensure a longer saw life.Use itasca as a chain oiler,never motor oil.

I'm looking for a way to adjust the E-Brake on my Homelite 18" Chain Saw. Its model UT10830. The Saw runs great it just seems that the Brake keeps it from cutting properly by not allowing the chain to turn...


remove the nuts that hold the bar & the screws that hold the cover on.w/ brake off,remove cover.inside cover you will find 'band' brake that surrounds sprocket assembly.if adjustment is provided,it will be at one end of the band.it's more likely to be an accumulation of sawdust interfering w/brake.also clean sawdust from chain oiler holes in bar,and around sprocket while you've got it apart.slacken chain adjuster screw to aid re-assembly,re-adjust chain

Runs well untill it gets hot. then cuts out


If it's the little xl model, it's probably the ignition coil breaking down when it gets hot and therefore it can't and won't be able to handle a load. Also, scarred pistons skirt or rings could also be some of the problem here. Make sure your mix for a Homelite saw is 40:1 not 50:1 like most saws are. Homelite seems to run better with a heavier oil mixture. Good luck.

Homelite 16'' chain saw runs rough and backfires


One of two things is wrong. This saw is so old I doubt it has electronic ignition. Pull the flywheel off and clean the points with carb cleaner and sand the contacts very, very lightly with super fine sandpaper or a little file. Second option, the coil is bad, take it to the shop and they should be able to test it for you.

Chainsaw chain won't move on 16" Homelite bar


Sounds like th clutch brake is engaged. Try Pushing firmly foward on the hand guard in front of the handle. It should click to release the clutch brake.
Let me know if this helps.
