2nd use of chainsaw pp3516avx, it won't start, choke lever will not stay extended. I followed the instructions to start and nothing works


The choke system is connected to the half throttle position, if you lift the throttle trigger the choke pull will automatically return, whilst trying to start do not lift the throttle trigger, the starting procedure is, pump the primer bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, pull the choke pull fully out, this will switch the saw on and engage the half throttle, crank the engine until it fires once, do not continue to pull,it will actually not run on full choke, if you do continue to crank with the choke fully out, you will very quickly flood the engine, now push the choke fully in, now crank the engine until it fires up, lift the throttle trigger once, this will dissengage the half throttle, and it should now come down to idle.

How do I adjust the carburetor on a Poulan 38cc chainsaw? Someone has messed with the low and high adjustment


Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Be sure to check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Start the engine and allow to warm up--pull the throttle full on and adjust H jet needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Proper adjustment is reached when the engine 4-strokes at speed, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L jet needle CW until the engine idles fairly well, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set the idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to run. Hope this helps!

How to adjust a macCullouch 110 chain saw carb?


Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting which should allow the engine to start and run. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Start the engine and allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H needle CW until the engine begins to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Proper final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes when running free, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW for smoother idle, yet still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops moving, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

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:

for an excellent article (but poor pix) on Walbro carburetors, but related to most all 2-stroke carburetors. Hope this helps!

Poulan Pro 220 saw starts & runs fine when finger on throttle, will not stay at idle. Rplaced plug & same issues.


All you need to do is try to adjust the throttle idle speed or else a cheat would be to tighten the cable which means the cable will be pulling very slightly the throttle which means it will remain running when u release throttle.

I have predator and wont start


Does it have good compression? Is the muffler plugged? Is the spark plug wet after trying to start? If not, try a little starting fluid in the plug hole, and try to start. If you get a few pops, try resetting the carburetor H and L jet screws each 1-1/2 turns out from CW stops. It should run with these settings. Warm the engine up, then apply full throttle and adjust H CW until it runs fast, but 4-stroking. It should smooth out when cutting. Next, set idle L for fairly smooth idle, yet follow the throttle without lag. Adjust idle speed just below chain movement. Hope this helps.

I have a Poulan Pro PP3516AVX chain saw. I used it


Their not the best saws but make sure the nuts holding the bar and cover on are tight after adjusting chain sometimes improper cutting will continue to kick chain off bar.
