Chainsaw stalls and won't restart

Chainsaw starts fine when cold but stalls when it gets hot. Then it will not restart. I've done everything but adjust the carburetor. I have the carburetor adjustment tool but don't know how to set the screws properly.

SOURCE: adjust carburetor gas and air intake on craftsman chainsaw

There is too much information to relay so I would suggest you go to Searspartsdirect.com and type in your saw number and on the right side there is an area for a manual. You will need to use your email addy and select a password for this but it is free. You can view or download the manual and the area you need is on page 15. Let me know if this won't work and I will copy and retype info requested.

SOURCE: carburetor tool

Unless you are skilled enough to make your own, you are stuck taking the saw to a servicing dealer as they are the only ones allowed to possess the necessary 'D' head screwdriver. Give thanks to the EPA for mandating the prevention of mal-adjustment pollution.

SOURCE: what do the adjustment screws on a poulan pro chainsaw carburetor look like

I'm not sure about the poulan, but they should just be little holes in the side cover there with a hi and low or H and L, If the engine won't stay running, open the low jet just a hair at a time, no more than 1/4 turn, try throttling it a minute, then see if it will run, If not try it again, do not open it up more than 1/4 turn at a time, the same goes for the high speed jet, if it won't rev. Open it up a hair at a time. Sometimes it will act totally wrong and have to be redone, close both screws, open both screws up 1 turn, then try it again. It is a small flat blade scewdriver just big enough to get in the hole, check it out. Hope this helps.

A practical alternative to replacing parts at random would be to take your vehicle in for a comprehensive diagnosis to identify the real cause of the problem(s).

My Husqvarna 351 starts then stops after 1-2 seconds


Once the saw cools down will it restart and run fine? There are a couple other solutions that are not directly due to carburation. The first two solutions above are definitely your first options.

1. Ignition Coil: Highly unlikely, but possible. I seen some where they get hot and run fine while cutting, you shut it down for a few minutes for whatever reason and it won't restart or starts and stalls.

2. Crankcase Air Leak: We started to see more and more of these issues. There are a couple of quick ways to test this if you do not want to pay a shop to do an actual test. You want to do a cold test and a hot test. With a half tank of fuel, start the saw up for the first time of the day. While the saw is idling, turn the saw sideways from right to left, do this slowly, listen to the saw idle, if the speed changes by increasing or almost stalling, you have a crankcase air leak. Most bad air leaks won't be noticeable until the saw has gotten hot and the aluminum crankcase starts to expand a bit. Do the same thing once the saw has gotten hot. If this happens when it's hot, chances are that it won't start or starts and stalls until it cools down and everything retracts.
Test Results:
Sporadic idling when cold: Most likely just the oil seals, fairly inexpensive repair.
Sporadic idling when hot: Most likely crankcase itself is leaking, requires a complete crankcase gasket replacement. Can be fairly expensive to repair.

2003 chevy tracker starts ok cold; but when hot it starts and then stalls.


It could be a clogged catalytic converter or bad o2 sensor. go to autozone and have them scan it ( for free) and post what codes and probable fixes they give you (they'll give you a print out)

If it was a two cycle I'd say it was clogged exhaust ports. But you have a pretty exotic bike. So I guess it's a timing issue dealing with the exhaust Ox sensors.

I have a homelite 46cc, 20 in. chainsaw; either a UT10522 or a UT10526 model. It starts up fine but dies after I let it idle for about 5 seconds. I can still cut trees but I can't put it down withou


Sometimes what can happen is the springs in the clutch break. This causes the clutch shoes to fly out at low speed and can stall the engine.
If the engine dies suddenly, it could be the electrical system, possibly the plug, breaking down with the heat.
If the engine splutters and then stops it could be fuel starvation. This would be caused by a faulty diaphragm or blocked jets in the carburettor. Check the vent valve on the tank also. This is a check valve which lets air into the tank as the fuel leaves the tank.

The saw stalls when it gets hot and won't restart till it cools down


This is possibly an ignition coil breaking down when hot, the only answer is to replace it, before you do that just try slackening the fuel filler cap when it starts to die, if it picks up again there is a problem with the fuel tank breather.
