I have a Homelite model 20 chain saw. It will

I have a Homelite model 20 chain saw. It will idle all day, but dies when I sqeeze the throttle. It doesn't have enough power to spin the chain, which is free and adjusted to the loose side. I have tried to adjust the carb, changed out the gas to freshen it, changed the plug. I don't know if this is related or not, but the saw recently started to leak chain oil when not in use.

    Tried that and even removed the factory installed, plastic adjustment limiters. Carb adjustment didn't help. Could there be something plugging a small passage in the carb? Thanks for the suggestion.

Carb ajustment


Only Info I see is "Homelite Chain Saws" - not much to go on.
Most saws have two carb adjustment screws, Hi, and Lo.
Assuming the saw will start and run enough to warm up, then
adjust the Lo screw in, clockwise, until the motor starts to slow down,
turn only about 1/8 turn at a time. From the point where it starts to slow down, turn it out about 1/4 turn. This should give you a decent idle. Now pull the throttle, and see what happens.
A - Saw runs up to speed, but dies off, or starts to slow on it's own.
turn Hi idle screw out about 1/4 turn.
B - Saw speeds up, but runs sluggish, fat - not real hi end.
Turn Hi screw IN, about 1/8 or so, and try again, or adjust
while running at full throttle. (best way)
IF it won't run well, try turning both screws all the way in to seat them, then come back out about 1-1/2 to 2 turns. this should get you in the ballpark to set things up as above.

Once the saw is running well, adjust the idle screw to a smooth idle but slow enough that the chain stops moving.

Stay safe

Need to know best way to adjust carb to get maximum performance on my homelite XL12


Regarding the adjustment procedure you generally start your low and high mixture screws at one turn from seat, or slowly turn them in all the way until they bottom out and then back them out one full turn. You will adjust the high speed mixture screw at full throttle and get the median point between too rich (loads up) and too lean (dies out). You will want to do the same thing with the idle mixture screw, just adjust at idle rpm. You will also adjust the low idle mixture screw to give you a smooth transition from idle to throttle up. Once this is obtained, you adjust the third or idle speed screw low enough so the chain does not turn at idle rpm but high enough so the saw doesn't cut off. Hope this gets you going.

Saw will not idle down, runs full


First thing to do is remove the top cover, now check that when you release the throttle trigger the spindle on the carb returns ahainst the idle screw stop, if not check the linkage is not sticking and holding it open, if ok make an adjustment to the idle screw, if this screws right out and the revs still do not decrease, then you have an air leak through a crank seal or gasket.

Homelite chainsaw model 4620c will not idle unless it is in the half choke position


If the jet screws have slot heads, set 'L' CCW about 1/2 turn more or less. If proper, the engine should idle fairly well, yet allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. If the jet screws have 'D' heads, you will need to either make a 'D' head screwdriver, or take the saw to a service dealer for adjustment. If the chain is trying to turn after the above adjustment, set the idle speed screw CCW until the chain stops trying to turn. Hope this helps!

Hi how to tune homelite 330 chain saw carby, idle


Before adjusting anything, check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Tighten all carburetor fasteners. Make sure you have fresh fuel mix in the tank. Does the primer bulb pull fresh fuel into itself when pumped? Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow it to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Proper final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW for fairly good idle, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to run. Hope this helps!

The saw starts and runs on fast idle but dies when you use the throttle? it,s a troybilt 18in saw


It sounds like it is flooding when you use the throttle, both are connected. Turn the idle back all the way until it dies, then try turning it a 1/4 turn the other direction.

I have stihl chain saw it runes full throttle


After you let off of the throttle it dies instantly or just kind of quits slowly ?
It could be :
- 1 ) Your clutch is hanging up and not allowing the engine to idle while the chain is not moving.
- 2 ) You need to set the idle higher. You will need to remove the air cleaner, and find the small idle adjustment screw, and turn the screw clockwise, until it idles.
Please let me know.
