A very common problem is that the tip of the drive shaft breaks off. If it cuts with the pole retracted and won't cut with it extended, than the drive shaft is pulling out at the clutch end or at the head. Try loosening the screws where the pole goes into the cutting head, stand the unit straight up and twist the cutting head to see if it drops down even just a little bit. After trying that, loosen the screws where the pole goes into the engine assembly and twist it there also. If this doesn't work, remove the pole at the engine end and pull the drive shaft out to inspect the ends of the shaft. Good Luck. George

SOURCE: Chainsaw starts fine, but dies mid cut?

Immediately after saw quits, while everything is still hot. Sometimes ignition modules quit working when hot.

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode.

Loosen fuel cap when it starts to die, If that fixes it it has a fuel vent problem.

If you did nothing to the carburetor adjustments, are using a fresh (3 months or less) fuel mix with the same oil/fuel ratio, and are operating at the same elevation there is a reason your saw is acting up.
It sounds as though there may be a fuel delivery problem. Check the fuel filter on the free end of a hose in fuel tank (manufacturer recommends an annual replacement). Check all fuel delivery lines especially at fittings and bends for cracks and holes. If those are good then the likely cause is internal parts of the carburetor. HTH

I have a ppt-260 that when cranked it runs at a high rpm without pulling trigger and does not return to idle, does anyones have a suggestion for a fix?


Check your throttle cable as it may corroded and has the carburetor held in full throttle position or someone has the idle speed screw turn all the way in.

How to start Echo ppt-266


Fill with correct fuel/oil mix. turn switch to I. Pump primer bulb 4-5 times. Turn choke on. Pull starter until engine fires. Turn choke off. Pull Starter until engine runs & allow to warm up for 10 secs before trying to engage throttle. If it doesn't start after 3-4 pulls with no choke then try same sequence again. May have to use 1/2 choke after engine fires. If it still won't start then something is wrong with it & it will need to be checked by a service agent.

How do you test the ingition coil on a echo 16 inch chainsaw?


Remove the ignition switch wire from the module. Set the module pole gap by turning the flywheel magnets under the module poles, insert a thin business card into the gaps, and loosen the module screws to allow the module to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws and turn the flywheel somewhat to release the card. Turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close up at any point. Test for a blue, snappy spark at a fresh plug gapped 0.020". If nothing or very weak, replace the module. Hope this helps!
