SOURCE: Poulan Pro 220 saw starts & runs fine when

All you need to do is try to adjust the throttle idle speed or else a cheat would be to tighten the cable which means the cable will be pulling very slightly the throttle which means it will remain running when u release throttle.

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: poulan saw wont run

Clean the muffler spark arrestor screen and check the cylinder port for carbon build-up at the upper edge. Try presetting both carburetor H and L adjustments (from lightly CW stops) 1-1/2 turns CCW each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle wide open and adjust H CW until the engine speed increases, but still 4-stroking. Correct setting is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L for smoother running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed to keep the engine running, but doesn't try to move the chain. You may have to look closer at your carburetor if the above doesn't help. Go to:

Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Inspect the fuel lines for decay or other damage. If no help, remove the carburetor, disassemble and clean the interior with spray carburetor cleaner. Check the condition of the diaphragm in the lower chamber--it should be flexible with no holes or cracks. Also check the small needle valve that the diaphragm controls. Check the crankcase impulse passage behind the carburetor for gasket failure or other damage. This passage pulse-pumps additional fuel into the carburetor as it runs. Hope this helps!

Poulan Pro Wild Thing will only run with choke out. Carb has been fully rebuilt and new lines added. As soon as throttle is pulled and choke pops off, engine dies. Any recommendations/suggestions? Thanks,...


If not already done replace the fuel filter in the tank, it is obviously fuel starvation, if no better increase the the fuel mixture on the H and L screws ( turn anti clockwise 1/4 turn on each to start with)

I have a poulan pro 4018. THe chain saw will start, but it appears that the choke is on full blast. As soon as it starts, the chain is moving - unsafe at the moment - I can use it as long as I don't...


Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Turn the idle speed screw (T) CCW somewhat to prevent the chain from turning at idle. If the above doesn't allow the engine to run without the choke on, then remove the carburetor, clean the interior with spray carburetor cleaner and check the diaphragm in the lower chamber for flexibility with no holes or cracks. Hope this helps!

Poulan 220 pro chain saw. Started and ran great for about 1 tank of gas. Now, it will start easily with full choke, but dies as soon as I pull the throttle.


Most warranties are effective for 1 to 5 years. Do nothing that may impact your warranty. A written diagnosis by a good independent saw shop ($10-20) might be a good idea at this point. It is difficult to argue repair charges with an authorized repair facility without some documentation in your favor.
1. Was this saw perhaps operated without oil mixed with the fuel?
· Remove the spark plug wire and plug.
· Remove the muffler, hold a light at the plug hole and inspect the cylinder through the exhaust port. Is it smooth and shiny or does it appear speckled with dull gray spots or smears?
· Pull the starter slowly, inspect the piston as it rises and falls. Is it a dull gray without scratches and gouges?
· Hold the light at the exhaust port and inspect the cylinder, above the exhaust port, through the spark plug hole. Is it shiny and smooth or speckled with gray spots or smears?
Any spots or smears on the cylinder or deep scratches and gouges in the piston indicate the saw was operated in a lean condition. Repair of this on a home owner quality saw often exceeds replacement cost. A repair estimate by the independent saw shop should be considered. HTH
