    Sorry to the other man who posted to adjust the carb. If you adjust it right it will run. After rebuilding the carb, tearing into three or four times. It finally paid to adust the high and low. Also had to reajust the idol on it. Seems that small engins don't like the ethonoyl in the gas. It eats up everything.

SOURCE: poulan model 1800 gas chain saw will not stay

Likely needs carburetor rebuilt. The fuel is pumped by a diaphram that runs off the vacuum pulses.

Another thing to check is a plugged fuel filter or an air leak in the fuel finder hose in the tank.

Poulan 2150 chain saw starts after priming and dies after a few seconds


Take the exhaust off so you can see the side of the piston, if it is scored or damaged it means it has probably been run without oil added to the petrol.
That can cause the problems you are having, if it is throw it away, its not worth repairing

I can start my Poulan 2000 16" chain saw but it


If the saw is brand new, take it into a service dealer for a carb adjustment (covered under the warranty). This sounds like it is your issue and unfortunately, you cannot correct it yourself because it requires a special tool.
As for you manual, it is located at the link below http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/NOUS/NOUS2006/NOUS2006_545137248.pdf

Poulan 16" saw, start fine, runs fine until it


A couple of ideas, it could be a fuel tank breather issue, when it starts to die just try loosening the fuel cap, if the saw picks up again you will need to change the breather, the only other thing i can think of is a bad ignition that is breaking down when hot, the only aswer to this is to replace the ignition unit

Poulan saw wont run


Clean the muffler spark arrestor screen and check the cylinder port for carbon build-up at the upper edge. Try presetting both carburetor H and L adjustments (from lightly CW stops) 1-1/2 turns CCW each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle wide open and adjust H CW until the engine speed increases, but still 4-stroking. Correct setting is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L for smoother running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed to keep the engine running, but doesn't try to move the chain. You may have to look closer at your carburetor if the above doesn't help. Go to:
http://www.drystacked.com
for an excellent article (but poor pix) on Walbro carburetors, but related to most all 2-stroke carburetors. Hope this helps!

Dies when pressing the accelerator


If your chain brake is not engaged, which i am sure you have checked, look at the air breather filter or the exhaust muffler which could be blocked with carbon.

Hi

Check the air and the gas filtetrs.Change the plug with a new one with the same heat range.Adjust the carb H and L.
High speed H=2 turns and low speed L=2 1/2 turns
