I have the kit craftsman chainsaw 18 inch, with 42 ml engine. The problem is when you finally get it started, it dies when you give it gas. I need an answer please?

I see this problem a lot, so I just decided to research the problem. Yes, it is a known problem with chainsaws. Put down to fuel starvation for a number of reasons.
dirty/stale/contaminated gas
clogged fuel filter
clogged air filter
incorrect carb gas to air mixture
wood particles in carb jet
loose carb

Starts easy but dies after a couple seconds

Does the primer pump maintain a fuel supply when running.? If not then you probably still have an air leak somewhere between the tank and the carb.

Could be fuel starvation, check carb High Low needle settings and disphrams.

Craftsman chainsaw has no power

I would first check your muffler and screen in muffler to make sure it's not partially plugged. Personally I think it sounds like a fuel delivery problem,I would make sure you change your Fuel filter and check your lines for being cracked and or collapsing from ethonal in gas these days. then I would put fresh gas in it and see if it also need to clean carb and then readjusr carb after cleaning carb

I have a Echo chainsaw model 452Vl and am not able to start it.

Hi, It does have a filter of sorts but is on the pickup inside the tank and should not need changed. Drain the fuel mixture and check all of the plastic lines and primer bulb for cracks or kinks. Put in a fresh fuel mixture that has not been sitting, (They don't run on old mix) and try starting again. The thought process is that if it starts on the starting fluid it can only be two things, old fuel or no fuel. If the fuel change doesn't work it is probably not getting fuel thru the carb, these oil mixes gum up rather quickly and if it sat for awhile with fuel in it it may need the carb cleaned. Good Luck to you, hope this Fixsya!

My Poulan 3500 chain saw will not start

My guess is that one of your fuel lines has a crack or small hole in it. Inspect these and replace if needed. let me know how it goes.
