Question about Poulan PP3516

1 Answer

Saw quits after cutting wood for about 5 minutes

I can cut wood for 5 or 6 minutes then the saw quits. It will start again after it sits for about 45 minutes and I can cut wood for another 5 minutes. This happens over and over. I put new gas and a new spark plug in but it made no difference.

Are you sure you have the correct amount of 2-stroke oil mixed in the gas? It sounds like it is overheating. Also check the engine to make sure the fins aren't clogged with wood shavings.

SOURCE: Poulan Wood Shark Chainsaw - wood smoking. Is chain on backwards?

I cannot tell you about a picture, but for one: chain direction, the bottom of the bar is where the cutting takes place, and therefore, looking at the chain, you will see, on the bottom, the antikick back link is sort of curved, and then the next part is the straight tooth. The highest part of this straight tooth is the sharp edge, and this high part should face towards the motor. The chain, on the bottom side of the bar, is pulled in towards the motor by the clutch/gear. That is your direction of travel.

As to cleaning the air filter, Hopefully you have access to compressed air, as in simply blowing off the dirt. You do not want to use liquid cleaner. Simply blow off any dirt, after pulling the filter away from the carburetor, of course. Then place it back in place.

It may be that your chain is real dull. The top edge of the high part of the flat tooth needs to be sharp. And the outside corner needs to come to a nice point. Remember, there is two cutting surfaces on each tooth, the top is cutting down into the wood, and also that outside sharp corner is openning the cut for the bar to pass through. Proper sharpening, if new to it, can be hard to grasp. Any chainsaw manual should show how to do a good job.

SOURCE: Have a Poulan Gas Powered Chain Saw, I haven't started in 10 yrs.

Not used in 10 years. Was there gas left in the tank? If so the carb is likely gummed up and may need to be taken apart and soaked in "Gunk" solvent and a new kit installed.

I have a Malita dual sliding compound miter saw LS1016LX. Trigger will not start saw after 5-10 cuts. When saw sits for 30 minutes, it runs again.


I'd contact a Makita dealer. I've had this saw for years without a single misfire on the trigger. Could be heat related, but that's a stretch. Here's their contact information:

My saw just cuts off after running it a couple minutes then it wont start back until it sits a little while


My first thought is the vent for the fuel tank is partially obstructed causing a slight vacuum to build in the tank when running, as it sets after it quits running the vent allows air into the tank slowly until the pressure equalizes.

I have an outside corner cut with a 45 degree slant and cannot figure out what my angle should be to get the right outside miter cut


You can solve this with geometry, but it will take forever and your answer will only be approximate (due partly to the limits of accuracy of the scales on your saw). If you are using a table saw, use scraps of wood and trial and error. It takes a while, but you can get a perfect result. If you are using a miter saw, then support your work from underneath at the angle to match your situation, and simply cut at 45 degrees.

The diamond insert in the hub of the blade keeps falling out as soon as I start a cut. What is wrong?


DO NOT USE SAW!!!

1. switch off saw, remove cord from socket (positive electrical insulation)
2. lift table for maximum cut and check size of the washer holding the blade,
3. you should have holding nut with collar, collar is about 1 1/4 (32mm) diameter, then blade (diamond is actually universal reducing bush in some blades) and lastly you should have internal washer, again, about 1 1/4" (32mm) diameter. if your collar are smaller, you need to replace blade as not suitable for your particular model, albeit I am rather suspicious that you have wrong collared nut and internal collar. Please check if both collars are exactly this same diameter. Please check if collars cover diamond cut-out.
4. if you see discreptancy between description in 3, purchase suitable blade (external diameter is 7 1/4" (184mm), as you did not supply what model of your saw, therefore most probably shank is 5/8" (16mm),
5. mount internal bush (collar), will go correctly only in one way.
6. mount blade (pay attention to cut direction, cutting surface should be clockwise if you look at mounting shaft.
7. mount external flared nut
8. check blade for slippage and wobbliness
9. connect power cord and switch on/off
10. check saw blade againg for slippage/wobbliness
11. make test cut if 10 was correct
12. use normally

Do not forget that this is not a toy, it will cut through wood, ocassional nail and your fingers.

Opearating saw crate flying debris, always wear googles or facemask, you have only two eyes and there is no spares.

Please leave note how you go with this advice.

How to cut a 45 degree angle on wood using a jig saw


use a combination sliding square to mark ecxactly where you want to cut. Measure the distance from the jig-saw blade to the edge of the jig-saw bottom plate. Use this distance to mark another line parralel to the first line. Nail or screew a straight piece of wood on the second line. Put the jig-saw plate against the wood fence and cut your perfect line.

Remove the muffler and inspect the piston and rings. If there are any vertical lines or grooves in the piston or the rings, you must rebuild the top end of the saw. (including cylinder)

Hitachi 18v recip saw just quits.....battery life or saw problem?


You are ok with what you got. The cordless saws take a lot of power to cut wood so it drains the battery fast. I have the ridged setup and my battery on a full charge only gets 4 cuts on a 2x4 befor it is dead. The saws will not give you any worning becauase the teath of the blade will get stuck in the wood so it just will not slow down like the drill will. I hope this helps with your ?

Use a pencil and straight edge to mark the cutting line on the wood. Place the wood on the saw table and line the mark up with the saw. Place the mark on the right side of the blade to ensure proper cutting. Plug the saw in and put on your safety goggles. Support the wood on the work surface with your left hand, placing it far from the saw blade. Place your right hand on the handle, and push the trigger to start the saw. Move the saw blade down onto the wood. Put constant pressure on the handle to slowly move the blade through the wood. Release the trigger and raise the blade once the cut is complete. Make diagonal cuts in the same manner, by marking the wood and lining the mark up just to the right of the saw blade. Continue as you would for a straight cut. Remove the wood from the saw. Unplug the chop saw and dust the sawdust off. Remove the dust bag from the back and empty it. Vacuum any remaining dust off of the saw.
