SOURCE: Homelite 16'' chain saw runs rough and backfires

One of two things is wrong. This saw is so old I doubt it has electronic ignition. Pull the flywheel off and clean the points with carb cleaner and sand the contacts very, very lightly with super fine sandpaper or a little file. Second option, the coil is bad, take it to the shop and they should be able to test it for you.

SOURCE: homelite xl chainsaw revved up & quit and won't start now

I suspect you have a fuel delivery problem or a dirty carburetor. As a chain saw runs out of fuel they often revv slightly (running lean). HTH

SOURCE: chainsaw dont run right

Adjust the "H" needle valve slightly more CCW and try it. This is also often helpful.
Carburetor Adjustment by
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.

There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.

Races at idle

If the idle cannot be controled by the idle screw ( screw marked with an I or T on the side of the carb ) then you may well have an air leak through a crank seal or a gasket.

I have a Homelite UT 10520. It is a refurbished chainsaw. It has ru about 30min. It is running hot. My mixtture is 50:1 and my gas is 90 oct. I think it is running lean. It will not get to the max...

lI thinkthe oil to gas is too rich with Gasoline. My book says 40 to 1. Not enough oil will cause it to run hot and burn or stick. Also some of the later models take the synthetic oil andif you use the outboard or other oil it will run hot and ruin the saw.

Homelite 10540 chainsaw 35CC chainsaw won't start when hot

Go to: http://www.drystacked com for a 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting. Check particularly, the position of the gasket in the lower chamber. Check the spark plug for blue, snappy spark when the engine is hot. If ok, place a small amount of fuel mix in the cylinder and try for start. If it pops several times, look to the fuel system. Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel after several pumps? Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. When the engine is hot, try not using the choke, but set the fast idle. Hope some of this helps!
