Question about Poulan Garden

2 Answers

The throttle trigger and trigger lock are both jammed in and I can't get the saw started. it's a Poulan 16 inch chain saw. Does anyone know if there is something I can do to release them short of taking it apart? The handle is riveted. How easy is it to take apart?

I think your rivits are roll pins but without clarification cannot verify that.

How do I connect throttle cable to throttle trigger?


Search for online manual, that has the diagram, showing the location the end of throttle cable at the trigger. You will have to take apart the handle assembly, to access the cable and trigger.

The throttle trigger will not work on my 235e husqvarna


I'm guessing from the statement that it "will not work to increase speed" that you have been able to successfully start the chainsaw.
I have to look at this with the assumption that you haven't run a chain saw before, so bear with me if some of this is excessively simple.
If the throttle trigger does not move, something is jammed. The handle for the choke should automatically move to the retracted position when you pull on the throttle. If it doesn't, see if the trigger will move after you push the choke handle back in.
If the trigger moves in when you squeeze it but you don't hear any change in the engine sound then it's probable that the throttle wire has disconnected at the carburetor or at the handle.
Is the chain brake off? You need to pull it firmly back toward the upper handle for it to be disengaged. If the handle is forward it will lock the outer portion of the clutch. If you try to accelerate with it locked the engine will bog and not allow the chain to move.
Any of these conditions other than the chain brake will probably require some disassembly. Make sure you're confident that you've correctly reassembled everything if you're going to do it yourself.

The chain keeps falling off my brand new Poulan sixteen inch blade chain saw


It is possible they gave you the wrong chain for the saw. I would take check the manufacture to see which chain you need then check the numbers on your chain. Other thing it could be is the washer on the clutch may be missing. Either way, it is a new saw, I would take it back.

The choke on a Poulan Chain Saw that I just bought will not stay out to start it.


There are two types of choke systems, the basic choke has a ball and spring in the carb body which locks the choke either in or out, the other type is connected to the half throttle position, once pulled out it stays out, however if you lift the throttle trigger it will go back in on its own, queation, are you holding the throttle trigger whilst trying to start it, if so this is why it will not stay out, if this is not the case, pull the choke out with a little more force, it may be just not coming out enought to lock.

Poulan chain saw will not stay running after i start it. What are the carb settings ?


Hello,
a good starting point is the low speed screw at 1 3/4 turns and the high side at 1 1/2 turns. Hope it helps

Throttle linkage


It seems that Mac engineers could have come up with something better than the M.M. kluge that they did. The problem is hooking the wire link to the plastic hook on the trigger plastic casting while juggling the front case and engine body. It appears that it should just snap together, but knowing how plastics get with age, it would appear that the trigger should be replaced every time the case comes off. I had trouble with mine and wound up straightening out the wire link end somewhat to force the parts together--it continues to work though. Hope this helps!

I have a 14 inch WEN/Wagner electric chain saw in good condition with the exception of the trigger switch. I have not been able to find a replacement for that small part. Can you help?


Jim it is so long out of production about the only thing available is the OM. If you can get a pn off the original switch Allied or Newark is an option. Maybe a trigger switch from a saw in current production can be modified to fit.
Different model Poulan electric saws follow:

3. http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/1625-Electric-Saw-Type-2/75.1625-Electric-Saw-Type-2.1.59.1.html
“EL-14“ through “ES400” here (5±):
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html

A length of spring steel and almost any micro switch might also be an option. Beyond that I am out of ideas.

Trigger on poulan 3314 does not control speed. Saw runs at constant speed, somewhere above fast idle.


Open the cover over the air cleaner so that you can observe the action of the throttle cable and carburetor lever. Operate the throttle--normal action is lever wide open at full throttle and lever resting on idle stop screw when throttle released. If action is restricted, disassemble the handle where the throttle trigger is located and clean out the sawdust. Recheck throttle action. The throttle cable shouldn't require lubrication. Clean the air filter and check the operation of the engine. Hope this helps!
