Question about McCulloch Garden

1 Answer

The saw wont stay running. I start it with full choke and throttle but when I try to close the choke it just dies. I can get it to start with half choke, but again it will die when the choke is off. The plug, filter and carb are clean and free of any excess oil. I do not know how to keep it running. Help please

Sounds like the carb needs to be rebuilt. Those tiny jets will clog easily and need to be replaced. The diaphragm is also a large part of bogging and dieing. Hope this helps.

Throttle trigger will not lock


1. Make sure dead mans handle is fully depressed
2. Squeeze throttle in
3. Push choke switch all the way down
4. Pull saw over till it fires
5. Click choke switch up one position to half choke
6. Pull over saw until it fires up, saw should start running at high rev's
7 .'blip' throttle for saw to return to tick over.

If the choke switch doesn't stay down in section '3' check chokelinkage to carb.

2nd use of chainsaw pp3516avx, it won't start, choke lever will not stay extended. I followed the instructions to start and nothing works


The choke system is connected to the half throttle position, if you lift the throttle trigger the choke pull will automatically return, whilst trying to start do not lift the throttle trigger, the starting procedure is, pump the primer bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, pull the choke pull fully out, this will switch the saw on and engage the half throttle, crank the engine until it fires once, do not continue to pull,it will actually not run on full choke, if you do continue to crank with the choke fully out, you will very quickly flood the engine, now push the choke fully in, now crank the engine until it fires up, lift the throttle trigger once, this will dissengage the half throttle, and it should now come down to idle.

Weedeater dies when you open choke


After you start it and are in the second stage of the choke (half choke ) let it run for awhile until it warms a bit then try openning choke and going to full throttle.

Need carb h/l ajustemts and idle controle ajustment


This does take a little time to get it just right. Start at one full turn for the h and l. Work on the high first and after you get the H running work on the Low. They have to work together. So if you get it to idle and run at full throttle but it hesitates when you pull the trigger just adjust the low a little higher.
