Generic problem for all Chain Saws not pull fuel. I do not agree, all chain saws do not have the same problem. Chain saws are like any gas driven tool. If you allow the fuel to sit in the carb. for any length of time, the fuel will turn and clug the jets. The best thing to do with a chain saw after using it, is to run the saw out of fuel, this will remove all fuel left in the carb and tank. If you feel brave, and you have a compressor handy, you can carefully remove the lines and in some cases the bowl and blow them out. Gaskets are hard to get unless you have a mower or small engine repair shop close. Hope this has helped you. Try it, it may work..!! John Ray

1. Make sure you have used the correct fuel to oil mix in the tank.
2. Set on/off switch to ON position.
3. Pull out the choke switch to (full choke position)
4. Prime the carb by pumping the primer bulb on the carb until fuel fills the bulb.
5. Pull over saw until the saw fires.
6. Push in the choke switch.
7. Pull over and the saw should start.

Primer button will not fill up


The primer bulb pulls fuel from the carb, into the bulb, and pushes it back to the tank. If the bulb does not fill there will be a number of reasons why, firstly if the saw is new, there will be oil in the carb from the starting prosess at the factory, the saw will start without fuel in the bulb, but will take many more pulls to get it going, once the saw starts and runs for a few minutes the oil in the carb will clear, and the bulb will fill normally when depressed, if your arm is not up to cranking the engine many times, remove the top cover, remove the air filter, dribble some fresh fuel/oil mix down the filter elbow, the saw will start after a few pulls. If the saw is a used machine the problem may well be a blocked fuel filter in the tank.

Saw does not start


  • If the saw was left away for a few months with fuel in it then a gel forms in the carburettor. If this is the case the carburettor may need to be stripped down by a professional and the jets cleaned.
  • If this was not the case the following procedure should get it running assuming that the spark plug is sparking. Even if fuel was left in the saw it may still solve the problem if it's not too bad.
  1. Remove the spark plug from the saw. If you want to check that it's sparking push the plug back into the HT lead, Rest the spark end against a metal part of the saw and pull the start cord. Check that the plug is sparking while you're pulling it.
  2. Assuming that the spark is ok pour about 5ml, one teaspoonful, of fuel into the opening where the plug came out of.
  3. Dip the spark end of the plug in the fuel so the spark gap is wet and replace the plug in the saw
  4. Try to start the saw.
The fuel that you poured in will ignite and should start the saw. The procedure may have to be repeated 2 to 3 times. Don't be tempted to use more than the 5ml of fuel or you'll flood the saw.
I hope this solves your problem.

This saw has been in storage but looks good the rope is to tight and its verry hard to pull,it only turns once its that normal if not what can i do


Remove the spark plug and try to pull the starter through. If it now pulls through easily, the cylinder head may be full of old fuel. Pull it through a number of times to expel the old fuel, then replace the plug and try for normal start. If still hard to pull, the engine may have been run on straight gasoline instead of oil/fuel mix. If so, the piston, ring(s), and cylinder may have been severely scored which then require replacement. At this point, consider the cost of a new saw versus repair costs running over $100 if you farm out the work. Hope this helps!

Poulan Wildthing pull starter problem hard pull; have changed fuel filter; pull starter works with spark plug out, but still hard on the odd pull with starter in?


Many modern saws have sufficient compression to present difficult pulling of the starter cord. Suggest trading in for a saw with a compression release. The only repairable problem with the present saw is if it is flooding the engine and you are trying to compress liquid fuel. You can tell by removing the spark plug and pulling the starter through forcefully--it will blow out raw fuel if it is flooded. Change the diaphragm in the lower carburetor chamber if it is flooded. Hope some of this helps!

Pull cord difficult to pull..removed from saw it works fine..with spark plug installed hard to pull ..with plug removed (of course there is no compression) ,the pull cord pulls easily..saw worked greatall...


Make sure someone hasn't run this saw without the oil in the fuel mixture. It is possible it is dry and some galling is happening. Or - if this saw is equipped with a compression bleeder (for easier starting), this could be not functioning and you're pulling through the normal compression (which can be a bit feisty!). Check for misalignment of some type having to do with the pull starter - check that the cord spool isn't rubbing on the housing when you pull. Good luck.

Mcculloch 3516 chain saw, does not always start.


It must have spark, fuel and compression to run. Your task is to figure out which is missing.
Sometimes electrical components quit operating once beyond a certain temperature. Does it always start cold and become tempermental when warm?
IMO most hard start problems on a chainsaw with a good fuel delivery system are flooded.
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) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
The 3516 is a MTD McCulloch (Chinese). These saws are in a class by themselves. Good Luck

NO SPARK, HAVE NEW PLUG BUT IT CONTINUES TO FLOOD.WHEN I TRY TO PULL START, THE PLUG JUST GET WET, PROBABLY IN THE FUEL AIR MIX ADJUSTMENT. HOW DO I CORRECT THIS? FUEL ALSO COMES FROM EXHAUST.


If raw fuel comes out of the muffler then you have an extreme flooding condition. There are no Model Numbers to tell me which type of saw we are working on but this works most of the time.

Try this: Remove the spark plug and BE CERTAIN the stop-switch is in the OFF position. Take the saw outside and bring a fire extinguisher with you! Hold the saw by the rear handle and let the muffler hang down to the lowest point possible. SLOWLY begin to pull the starter rope and observe the fuel being pumped out of the muffler. Gradually increase the speed of the rope pull and get as much fuel out as possible. When satisfied that it's dry, it isnt. Use compressed air to LIGHTLY blow into the spark plug hole and continue to pull the rope. (Might need 50 or more pulls!) Blow the spark plug dry and reinstall it.
Turn the switch ON, leave the choke OFF, and hold the trigger wide open. Start the saw and allow it to run at full throttle until it clears out all unburnt fuel and has good throttle response. If you need further assistance reply to this post with the make and model of the saw and I will be happy to help.

Hope this is helpful,

Hartd to start when saw is warm


Are you choking it? You shouldn't be if hot. If no clean the air filter and try again. Are you setting the fast idle? You should be. Better? If your start procedure is similar to below and your fuel hoses have no cracks or holes the carburetor needs adjusting. A tune up might be a good idea. About $40 at your friendly neighborhood Stihl dealer (regardless of make). If taken in for tune up, get the oil/fuel ratio and use it until your next tune up (regardless of what manual says). HTH

I need info on a Poulan Pro 445 fuel line routing


I'm so confused. This is reported as a Poulan and McCulloch pole saw, which one? Is it a pole saw? That is the only 445 Poulan I can find. It is reported as an electric but has a fuel routing problem.

If it is a Poulan Pro gas pole saw it is here: PP445 Gas Pole Pruner
The fuel system routing is terrible, but it is all there is.
Fuel Routing follows:
Tank to carburetor (hose in tank with filter on free end)
Carburetor to primer (primer draws fuel from the tank through the carb)
Primer to fuel tank (returns any excess fuel to tank when pushed) HTH
