Question about Husqvarna "Chain Saw - 16" Bar, 3 Hp
Now, on to my problem. I have a Model 61 Husqvarna chainsaw. The saw starts and runs good for about 15 minutes and then it will just die. It will start back up but the performance is terrible and it stalls out after a few seconds. I have cleaned out the screen on the exhaust, replaced the fuel filter, spark plug, and put new gas in. None of these fixed the problem.
Are there any other areas that I should look at?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, the saw still has lots of life and I would hate to get rid of it.
Carb adjustments/also ratio of gas oil mixture

I took mine to the shop, got it back ($50!) said the gas was bad. Did the same thing, looked here, checked the gas gap and sure enough the vent hole was plugged. Works great now.

Sounds like to me that you may have a coil problem. I think it's running just long enough for it to run hot, then it screws up the electronics in the module. This module has a low rev side and a high rev side. Sometimes one or the other screws up.
I don't think it's the carburetor due to the fact that if there was a carb problem the engine wouldn't fire up so easily and it sure wouldn't run for 15 minutes before letting you know you have a problem. Either a carb runs well or it doesn't no such thing as good sometimes and bad at other times.
Again, have the coil checked.
