Question about Craftsman Garden
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.
It's kinda hard to help you if we don't know what brand and model you have

Make sure you have the right spark plug and gap is right on for that model.

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.

The tool you need is available from Randy's Engine Repair, on his E-Bay store. The price is about $10., plus $3. shipping. Phone for Randy's is (937) 927-5665. It is usually busy.
Ebay item number is: 390025452838. Buy it online. I got mine about a week after I ordered it.

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.

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.
