SOURCE: Why does my poulan chainsaw cuts off

Check the spark plug for condition. It should have a light brown appearance. Check the gap, should be about 0.020". If it looks black and wet, check the air cleaner condition. Check the carburetor mounting and end plate screws for tightness. Check the condition of the fuel lines from inside the tank (tank-end filter too) out to the carburetor for condition. Replace anything that looks cracked or kinked. Check the lines to and from the primer button if the saw has one--no cracks in the primer button itself. Make sure the fuel in the tank is the proper oil mix and is fresh. Always pre-mix oil and fuel before filling the tank. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Chainsaw starts fine, but dies mid cut?

Immediately after saw quits, while everything is still hot. Sometimes ignition modules quit working when hot.
Ignition Coil Test
You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode.

Loosen fuel cap when it starts to die, If that fixes it it has a fuel vent problem.

If you did nothing to the carburetor adjustments, are using a fresh (3 months or less) fuel mix with the same oil/fuel ratio, and are operating at the same elevation there is a reason your saw is acting up.
It sounds as though there may be a fuel delivery problem. Check the fuel filter on the free end of a hose in fuel tank (manufacturer recommends an annual replacement). Check all fuel delivery lines especially at fittings and bends for cracks and holes. If those are good then the likely cause is internal parts of the carburetor. HTH

Poulan 16" saw, start fine, runs fine until it

A couple of ideas, it could be a fuel tank breather issue, when it starts to die just try loosening the fuel cap, if the saw picks up again you will need to change the breather, the only other thing i can think of is a bad ignition that is breaking down when hot, the only aswer to this is to replace the ignition unit

Could be a fuel tank breather issue, when it starts to die slacken off the fuel cap, to see if it picks up again, if it does you need to replace the breather.
