More than likely, your choke became disconnected. I have attached a link from YouTube of a video on this.
There are many useful video's on fixing chainsaws, from simple fixes such as reattaching a choke lever, to complete tear down and rebuilds.
I hope this helps you get back up and running.

SOURCE: echo chain saw 16 inch will not start

You need to play about with the timing adjustment.
You can adjust the timing by two different methods.
The first is to adjust the space on the spark plug.
The other is to adjust the gap between the contact, and the coil/magneto.
There ya go, FixedYa !))

SOURCE: 2.0 Cubic Inch Montgomery Ward gas chain saw, 10 inch cutting bar

Fuel/Oil Mixture

  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 3 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

Why pole saw wont saw?


There could be a couple of reasons why your saw won't cut.
The first thing I would check is to make sure you have your chain facing the right way.
The chisel edges should be facing forward, or in the direction the saw chain is rotating.
If this is not the problem, then I suspect the chain itself is dull.

16 inch poulan chainsaw got hot and started to smoke and now the recoil no longer works. I took the cover off and there is two springs that seem sprung. should I toss it and forget it or this something I...


how old is the polan 16 inch is it a solid body saw or does it have anti vibration handles, so your hands dont go numb after cutting for 15 minutes.reason i asked is: you can buy a brand new reconditioned homelite with anti vibration handle for 85.00&shiping.
at the very least,your polan needs the recoil starter fixed
and that does not address why the poulan got hot & started to smoke.
For the problems you described , at least $100.00 labor plus parts to fix at a chain saw shop
It might barely be worth it if you were a do it yourselfer and wanted to try to fix it.
if you dont want to be a diy chain saw mechanic, sell your polan for parts for $20.00 on ebay and buy a new homelite
16 inch 38 cc with anti vibration handle ,so you can cut for 6 hours straight, if need be. You get a reconditioned saw that is ready to go and a 90 day warranty. or buy the saw brand new for $110.00 and free shipping@ amazon.com

Can i upsize my chain from a 14 inch to a 16 inch i have a 14 inch mcculloch and i want to put a 16 inch bar and chain on it. it is a 35 cc engine


There will be a 16" option, however things to remember, you will have a drop in power, so you need to keep the chain sharp, the oiling system will probably on its limit.

Gas ratio


Most saws built within the last 30 years or so can be run with 40:1 using modern synthetic saw oils. A number of late model units run 50:1. Make sure to premix the fuel and oil before adding to the saw. Hope this helps!

Will not start - brand new


i bought a new dirtbike as a kid n same thing.it turned out ,it needed to be a synthedic oil in the mix.try seeing for spark to begin with by putting sparkplug in the wire n touching diode to the engine block while pulling the cord.thats a good starting point to diagnosing your problem.maybe try warming it up in the house then try starting it with no choke needed.the saws i ve used needed you to give it throttle after you pull,n no throttle with choke.
