SOURCE: Craftsman chain saw only runs short time

Craftsman is made by Poulan.
How old is the saw? Have you checked for split fuel hoses? Change the cc to model number (2.2cc Craftsman is often Model 2200 Poulan) and try to find an IPL http://www.ordertree.com/cms/illustrated-parts-list/9788.html. This will show hose routing. As a last resort you may try the "Chainsaw forum here http://www.arboristsite.com/. These are good guys but you will be flamed for buying a homeowner saw.

I'd put the filter back on.

I have a 7kw Kohler marine generator that shuts of when boat gets up on plane New impeller New fuel filter I started it runs for a while then shuts off It takes a bit to start but runs for 20 plus hrs


I take it that this unit runs the power on board and is permanently fixed in the boat
you mention new impeller so logically that means that it is water cooled drawing the cooling water from outside (underneath the boat)
pursuing logic further if that is the case then there is a shut down circuit for the water flow to prevent overheating should the water inlet become blocked ( weeds, plastic cloth etc)
from your question and statement I would be looking in that area to make sure water flow is not restricted or the protection circuit is operational ( no corrosion in terminals and wires )

My 95 ford f150 runs great till it warms up it seems then the fuel pump looses power n shuts down wait few mins kicks back on runs fine till few min later


Sounds like your ignition module it is common on fords to do this when its cool it will start and run fine but once it heats up the truck dies until you let it cool down again and then your up and running till it heats up again. Some modules are mounted on the fender others are mounted with the distributor have it checked and let me know how it went.

Homelite 360 chainsaw will run like 20 minute then quit and will not run. then cool down it will run again and short time quit again


It sounds like the coil has gone bad. The winding in the coil are coming loose when it gets warm and making good contact when the unit cools off. I would replace the coil, and see if it will run and quit like it did previously.

Hitachi CS33EB16 16" Rear Handle Chain Saw Starts a little rough - brand new. Run for 15 minutes and turn it off, if started within 3 or 4 minutes it starts right up. If I wait 7, 8 minutes or more it...


might pay to check the fuel tank breather , make sure its venting

check the ignition coil it may be going open circuit loosing its spark when it getts warm or hot , you have to wait till it cools to re-start

you will need a spark tester fitted in between ht lead and plug to check this visually when its running

check for a kill wire grounding 1st

cheers

Chipper/ Shredder runs for while on the amount you primed the eng


Check to be sure there isn't a small hole or crack in the priming bulb. If there is it allows air to enter fuel line, loosing the prime. Most have a collar that unscrews to remove it.

My dad owns a 3 yr old Homelite chainsaw. he is bringing it to me to repair. The chainsaw runs great and as it warm up the idle will rise to the point were it is full throttle and you can't get it to idle...


Check the throttle trigger assembly for free play. You may have to remove the handle section over the trigger to remove sawdust/dirt. Idle changes are usually due to air leakage behind the carburetor--check all fasteners on the carburetor including the ones holding the carburetor to the cylinder. Check the muffler and air cleaner for plugging. Check the cylinder for looseness to the crankcase. Check the throttle return spring on the carburetor to make sure that it is working correctly. Hope some of this helps!

My saw starts good when its cold,but after you run it , it wont start . I have a poulan chain saw 3400


Check the spark with a clean new plug when it won't start. If absent, then the ignition module may be sensitive to heat and need to be replaced. If spark is good, try putting a small quantity of fuel into the plug hole, reinstall the plug, and try to start--if runs for a short time, then you have fuel delivery problems. Check the carburetor for looseness to the engine and the condition of the fuel lines. Check the tightness of the screws in the carburetor end plates. Are you using the choke when restarting? 2-stroke engines usually need a little help to get running even when warm.

Fan


The hum is power line hum ( 60 cycle ) . It may be that when the amp gets warm that something in the case wants to vibrate to the 60 cycle hum.

I have amps that hum like that and theyre fine.

Depending on the design of the amp, the cooling fan may not go on till it gets really warm in the amp. Some run all the time like the Ashly I just fixed
