SOURCE: Bogs down?

Try turning the "H" needle CCW a little. Cleaning the muffler and spark arrestor is a good idea too (if it cannot exhale it cannot inhale).
I do not think you need this but something to save for later.

  • 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.

SOURCE: new 18" Poulan Pro 42 cc saw, mixed up new gas

Don't use stabil. Use a modern synthetic saw oil (50:1 fuel to oil ratio) available at home centers, hardware stores, and saw dealers. Mix the oil and fuel in it's own container and be sure to shake the container thoroughly just before filling the tank each time to prevent oil starvation. If it becomes apparent that the carburetor adjustments are wrong, you will need to see your dealer for adjustment. Good luck!

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Poulan 16" saw, start fine,

Usually when a small engine starts fine.. runs fine.. gets hot it's ignition related.

First you want to make sure the cooling fins are clean.. remove any covers and clean the area around the head. If those fins are clogged.. not good.

Second I would check the spark.. and the spark plug condtion.

Also for power tools that don't get used that often.. fuel sytems get gummed up.. fuel gets old.. and folks tend to use the fuel in the can they mixed two seasons ago. Make sure the fuel mix is correct.

I assume it is running fine with the choke off.. however check the choke for proper operation.

Clean or replace the air filter as well.. once all the ignition and fuel components are in good order.. only then should you begin to adjust the carb. Probably not needed.. but don't do it until you are satisfied that you have good air fuel mix and proper spark.
Best of luck

Choke/start knobs wont pull out to ingage thus not start.saw is only 6monthsold used twice


Should still be warranted. Why void the warranty? Take it back or find an authorized service center.

The site says 1 year warranty. HTH
