Test the steps and fix it. God bless you

Spark Arrester

Inside the muffler of most chainsaws is a screen-like device called a spark arrestor. If the chainsaw stops after a few seconds or won't start at all, the spark arrestor might be clogged. The spark arrestor prevents small embers from being emitted by the engine to prevent fires. Over time the spark arrestor will become clogged with soot. Remove the spark arrestor and clean with a wire brush or replace.

Carburetor

If the chainsaw engine stops after a few seconds, the carburetor might be clogged or have bad fuel in the float bowl. If old fuel was left in the chainsaw for a long time some of the volatile ingredients may have evaporated, leaving a thicker, stickier product that is more like varnish or shellac. This sticky fuel can clog up the small jets and ports in the carburetor and it can be difficult to burn allowing the engine to only run for a few seconds. The only solution is to drain the old fuel from the float bowl and thoroughly clean the carburetor with carburetor cleaner. If that isn't effective, replace the entire carburetor.

Gas Cap

The gas cap on YOUR chainsaw is designed to let a very small amount of air into the tank. This is necessary because as fuel is consumed a vacuum is created in the fuel tank. The gas cap has a tiny vent to let air into the tank and equalize the pressure. If the gas cap vent gets clogged air can't enter the tank and eventually the vacuum pressure in the tank exceeds the vacuum pressure of the engine, and the engine stalls. The vent often cannot be cleaned because it is made of a semi porous ceramic material. If the gas cap vent is clogged, replace the cap.

Spark Plug

If the chainsaw starts and stops after a few seconds The spark plug may be defective. Although this is not very common it is easy to test. Try removing the spark plug and installing a new one.

SOURCE: poulan 2150 w/ walbro wt324 carb fuel line reassembly

the fule line that comes from the filter/ pick up will go straight to the nipple usualy the one closest to the middle of the carby.
the other hose comes from the carby to the in or **** side( punp it you can feel it)of the primer and then goes to the tank that is the return/ prime, nothing is conected to it in the tank. if you have the carby one the wrong way around it will not prime. just swap them over..

You normally have 3 screws - idle speed - slow running and fast running.
First take care as if it runs faster than idle speed that chain will be whipping around also.

Second you have to determine what is the problem. Is it faulty at low speeds or high speeds ? or won't it idle.
If it has turn stops fitted to the screws you only have a small adjustments either way.

If it won't idle, try turning in the idle screw a half turn - until the chain just starts to move slowly.
If its dying at slow speeds, get is going and slow turn the slow screw out until it starts to run a bit rough then turn it back in to the point where its running smoothly.

Bad fast speed can be caused by simple things such as a blocked muffler ( insects too - I had one blocked off by a mudnest wasp) - otherwise get it running at full and adjust the fast screw as per the slow one - out till its rough then back in slowly until its smooth.

Suggest before all this tho that you get it running with the cover off the carby and then give it a good squirt of carby cleaner first - it may just clear out any 'poop' thats there.

(Have faith even tho I have a Poulan with a carb that refuses to run on anything but carby cleaner. I have pulled it apart a few times and renewed all the perishable bits buts its a real pig)

Firstly consult your manual regarding carburettor settings. There should be a high and low speed adjustment on the saw, often called or labeled as "L" and "H".

These are often located on the main motor body, closer to the handle on one side and require a screwdriver or similar to adjust. They might be buried and you have to look down the adjustment holes in the outer body to see the screws.

Basically you need to adjust the "L" or low idle screw.

Firstly, warm up the chainsaw and allow it to get up to temperature... The blade, as you say will probably be spinning still with hands off the throttle... Grab your screwdriver and adjust the "L" or low idle screw turning it counter-clockwise (at least on most saws) very slowly until the chain just stops turning on the bar. If you go to far you may stall the motor. You just want the chain to have just stopped moving on the bar, and that is your "L" setting position...

Has to be done with a warm engine though.

Thanks.

This is a carburetor linkage problem and pulling engine though with the starter will not have any effect.

Check all the linkage at the carburetor for problems. Also try pulling the throttle trigger and may sure it operating the carburetor.

Try testing it with a known good carb. The float and needle may be worn out. Since it starts, it is obviously a fuel problem and not an electronic one. Or if you have the means, buy a new carb.

Walbro wt-141 changeover to wt-629


If the carb has two connections then it is designed to work with a primer bulb, the fuel inlet will be nearest to the pump cover, the alluminium cover held with a single central screw, you can either get the correct carb for the machine or use a short rubber tube with a blank in the end ti close it off.

Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a 12 page PDF document on Walbro carburetors. Pay special attention to the caution about the lower chamber gasket and the diaphragm. Crankshaft seals rarely become a problem until the crankshaft main bearings have worn so much that the crank shaft can be visibly moved sideways. Make sure the muffler and air cleaner are not plugged. A basic setting for H and L jet screws is turn both CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. The engine should start and run with these settings. Allow the engine to warm up, then open the throttle and adjust H CW until the engine starts to speed up but continue 4-stroking. Proper final adjustment is 4-stroking, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Let idle and adjust L CW until engine runs fairly well, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, 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:
http://www.drystacked.com
for an excellent article (but poor pix) on Walbro carburetors, but related to most all 2-stroke carburetors. Hope this helps!

Carburetor initial adjustment for Poland 2150


Both about two turns or so. Engine must be warmed up to properly set the running adjustments. H adjustment to get four-stroking with no load, but immediate smooth out with light load (cutting wood). Idle set for smooth idle, but allows immediate pickup from idle when throttle applied.
