Could be a couple of things. First guess is the carburetor is bad. Because when the saw goes from the choke circuit to run it dies.

Generally you shouldn't have to adjust the carb settings. It is probably due to an incorrect air/fuel ratio but could be caused by a few different things. First of all, check your air filter and clean if needed. If this is ok then you might have an air leak some where. Make sure your carb is screwed tight onto the machine and that all the gaskets and manifolds are fine. If there is a rubber tube going from the carb to the cylinder, put some soapy water on it and check for bubbles. If you see any then there is a compression leak and this is the cause of the problem. Other wear parts that may develop an air leak are the crank seals and piston rings. These would be best checked at a workshop where they can do full pressure testing. One other thing to chceck is the exhaust. Most exhausts have a spark arrester. This is a bit of gauze on or near the outlet. If this becomes to dirty then it can affect the performance. It is normally easy to remove, clean and refit. You could also take the exhaust of and make sure it isn't too 'coked up' with carbon. While the exhaust is off, just check through the manifold and make sure there is no scoring on the piston or cylinder as this would also cause pressure leak. This would only happen if you have been using dirty fuel, fuel without the correct oil mixture or if the cooling fans on the cylinder are blocked.
One last thought, and it is a fairly common one in my workshop. Old or stale fuel will not burn efficiently. If you have a quick sniff and it really hits the back of your throat then you might need to put some fresher stuff in and give it another go. You would be shocked at the amount of gardening equipment we get in that has been layed up over winter with the fuel in that won't start in the beginning of spring/summer.

SOURCE: My Poulan Pro 260 chainsaw will start and run when

It is running in a lean condition. Continued operation like that can cause piston and cylinder failure.
I'd take it in for repair estimate ($10) at the local chainsaw seller/mechanic. Explain the problem you are having, Probably a leaking fuel line. I'd expect a repair and tune up about $40-60. Your saw will perform better and your arm will thank you. If tuned ask what fuel/oil ratio they used (should be 50:1) and affix a label to your fuel tank. HTH

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Stihl 192 MS, a climbing saw.

Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

Why does husqvarna 123hd60 bogs on revs


Mix up some "carburetor & fuel injector cleaner" in a batch of fuel, Nathan, at the rate specified on the bottle of cleaner. Run it through the hedge trimmer just like normal fuel. For right NOW, you can use the choke to keep the trimmer running. As the cleaner works, you should need less & less choke to keep it going.

It may take a while.

Next time you store that trimmer for winter, drain it fully and run it until it dies from lack of fuel. Then it won't form varnish on the carburetor jets over the winter - that varnish is what's causing your problems now.

Runs first 30+ sec then bogs out/dies when throttle pressed


If still under warranty have it serviced (authorized dealer not Joe's lawn mower). There should not be a fee (paid by Husqvarna). There have been carburetor problems. If you adjust it your warranty will likely be void; Joe's small engine service just as likely to void any warranty. Are you using a fresh 40:1 fuel oil mix. The will not start with choke set is normal. Start procedure in your OM says listen for sputter and disengage choke. Almost all new saws have similar start procedure.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4).
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).

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.
