SOURCE: Homelite chainsaw won't stay running

I have a Homelite 33cc which has never run smoothly since it was brand new. Erratic running, sometimes wont idle, and never seems to develop full power. Adjusting the jets achieved no lasting improvement. In frustration I stripped it down right back to the intake port on the cylinder and found the problem. The two screws that hold the the carb mounting plate to the cylinder were a tad too long in manufacture, and even though done up very tight they bottomed out in their holes before applying proper pressure to the sealing gasket, which then developed some "flutter" in the airflow and partially disintegrated, leaving massive air leaks. No way it was EVER going to run properly like that. Check that this isn't the problem area on your particular model before you go crazy trying to tune your carburetor.

Pro ppb150e. Why is it cutting out after a few minutes of operation?


I have not seen this model of saw. If the fuel cap is on the top of the saw try running it with cap slightly loose. This will allow air come into the fuel tank. I have also seen vent holes in the fuel cap get plugged with saw dust. If this is the case just clean it out with a small piece of wire.

Cuts out at highway speeds


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
15. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
16. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

Saw runs for 5 minutes and bogs out


This is sometimes caused by dirt in the gas tank. When the saw is off and being moved around the dirt settles to the bottom. The saw will start OK and rev up but after a while the dirt gets shaken up and sticks to the fuel filter in the tank. When enough dirt covers the filter the saw looses power or dies all together. Sometimes it will get enough gas to idle but not enough to run at high speed. With the tank half full, shake the saw to get all the dirt stired up and dump it out. Put a little gas in it and shake & dump it again. If you can fish the fuel line with the filter on it out, remove the filter and either replace it or blow it out. If this doesn't cure all your problems you may have leaks in the fuel line to the carb that are letting in more air than gas causing your power problems.

Recheck the spark--if the plug is wet, it should have at least popped several times. Try a new plug gapped at 0.020". Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage--if replacing any, use original rubber lines only, not plastic. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel after several pumps? Remove the carburetor, and clean it inside and out with spray carburetor cleaner. Look closely at the lower chamber diaphragm which should be pliable with no holes or other damage. There is a small filter screen within the main body that can get plugged with stale fuel. Check the components between the carburetor and cylinder for any damage. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetor theory and troubleshooting which also applies to other carburetor brands as well. Hope some of this helps!

Lose gas line poulan weed eater


The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter of the two fuel lines, goes from the carburetor to the bottom of the tank. Leave enough slack in this line so that the filter that attaches to the end will rest comfortably at the bottom of the tank.
The other fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank, (about an inch). make sure that you get the right size fuel lines.
(HINT): when feeding the lines through the tank holes, cut the lines at an angle. They will feed much easier into the holes. You can than cut them off square, once you know that you have enough to work with.

Chainsaw kills when I press the throttle


My 372 xp did that and when I talked to the repair shop they even showed me. There is a fiberglass gasket that is used to mount the carburetor to the engine. I have no idea on how this happens, but I saw it with my own eyes. The gasket had actually folded over. They replaced it with a rubber one and have had no problem since. The saw was hard to start, would run as long as I didn't try to cut anything and when I did it would open up and then die. I could be giving wrong information, but that sounds exactly like the problem I was having.
