I'm not sure what you mean by jammed. If the engine was hard to pull the cord then you probably tripped the chain brake. Most chainsaws all you do is pull back on the hand guard to reset the brake. If you are adjusting the idle you will need to have it running then turn the screw until you have the desired engine rpms.

SOURCE: chain brake problem

http://www.echo-usa.com/pdf/documentation/CS3000T1T1E_081303.pdf

This is the breakdown of parts for your model,you can see how the brake is, but your problem sounds like the dogs inside the clutch are stuck and causing the chain to constantly engage the chain.

Open the clutch to look at it and see what is causing this.

The idle usually will not cause the clutch to engage, this is usually
a higher rev that engages the clutch.

If it has ball bearings in the rachet mechanism they may be sticking and need cleaning so they move freely.!

SOURCE: Ryobi 40cc chain saw, pull cord won't turn rotar assembly

I had the same problem with my 18 inch Ryobi saw. The problem is the tabs that engage the recoil to the flywheel are of poor quality steel and they bend out of position. The end result is when you pull tyhe rope it just jumps and wont start. Eaven the new parts do the same thing. Simple soultion is remove the recoil starter four screws require a torx bit or a flat screwdriver. after your remove the recoil starter using a pair of pliers bend the two tabs upwards untill they are not quite straight up (about a 80 degree angle be carefull not ot brake the tab off) once you have done this remove the center nut that holds the flywheel on. the silver pins that hold the tabs in position need to be punched out but remember how they go back by doing only one at a time and remember how the spring is installed. Turn the flywheel over and using a punch and hammer remove the pins. Put the tabs in a vise to hold them sucerly clean the steel as best you can on the inside of the bend. Fill the bend with brazing rod or coat hanger if you haven't got any brazing rod avilable. You don't have to com;leatly fill the bend but put enough in there to suport the tabas so they can't bend agin. Reassemble the saw and you're done. Mine works great now, better than new. This problem isn't limited to recon saws only, mine is a new saw and I still had the problem. Good luck herbdogs

SOURCE: Carburator adjustment for Homelite xl 12 chain saw

Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns. This should get the engine running if it will. If it does not, check the lower diaphragm on the carburetor for hardness or cracking. You appear to be running on prime only--the carburetor doesn't seem to be pumping in fresh fuel. You may need to do a carburetor clean and re-kit. Check the fuel line condition and the fuel filter in the tank for plugging. Make sure the muffler and air cleaner are not plugged. Once you get the engine to continue running, warm the engine up. Open the throttle and adjust the H needle CW--the engine should start to speed up, but still 4-stroking. The proper setting is 4-stroking, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW so that the engine runs fairly smoothly, yet 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!

What are the air and gas settings for a poulan micro XXV chain saw


adjust the L screw in fully till right in,then out 1.5 turns,same with H screw.Then start saw,adjust L screw in or out slowly till you get max revs.You may need to lower idle via idle screw if revs too high.When screw cant acheive better revs,reset idle.Then,rev saw to max revs,adjusting H screw to get max revs,then when max revs acheived,turn screw anti clockwise 1/4 turn out.That gives it enough petrol to cool the tip of the plug

Oiler mechanism to bar of ryobi 40cc 10532 18 inch


I get asked this question a lot , im gonna have to make a video on this subject someday .
but here:
1st ck your oil viscosity/SAE it should be 30 and say bar/chain oil
next dump out entire oil tank and wash out with kerosene (you'd be surprised what I seen come out)
then remove bar and chain , locate oil outlet it's in body of saw near adjustment screw , use a small can of air to blow in this port softly , use a touch more of kero to clean this all out , refill tank with proper oil !!!! and run saw (no need to put bar/chain back on yet ) might take several minutes but oil should start to flow out hole !! stop saw and reinstall bar/chain then run again .. fixed !! if no oil comes out ever your oil pump is gonna need some fixing

for a low cost oil I use filtered used motor oil cut down with a dab of kerosene

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

Chain continues to turn when in the idle position.I checked the manual and done what it said and no change, any ideas?the saw is a pcn4040 16inch


Most of the time,when the chain does not stop it is because because it is to tight.
Loosen the chain,there should be just a little play on the bar. Hope this helps.

Ryobi 540A need manual runs slow/ chain too tight?


Actually, I own one of these battery operated Ryobi chain saws too. It is normal for the saw to run slow. Remember it is battery powered, not gas, so its not going to be a high rpm saw. Be patient whit it, and you'll get about 4-6 cuts per battery. I take mine camping. It sure is nice not having to listen to a two-stroke while relaxing in the woods! Dont plan on cutting lots of stuff, either, or you'll burn up the motor. This thing works great for very mild workloads.

Hmmm could be a clogged muffler,fuel line, the carb might need to be cleaned or rebuilt or dirty fuel filter or if u have on the saw thers a low and high idle screw setting, usally on the side of the carb that might need to be adjusted.

Ryobi 40cc chain saw oiler not working correctly


Hi
Check and clean the oil filter from oil tank.Check the worm gear wich engages with the oil piston pump(under the clutch).Near the hole where the oil comes out from oil tank there is an oil tank valve(see if it is clogged),it equalises the presure between interior and exterior of the oil tank.

Idle is off??


hi leobowdy

disassembly the carb and carefully clean it.Check the air filter,the fuel line and fuel filter,check the needle,lever,small spring and the screen filter from the carb.Check the sparkplug.
high speed H=2 turns,low speed L=2 1/2 turns,adjust T
When chain saw starts adjust H,L and T accordingly.

cheers savumihai71.
