Empty out the gas and replace with proper gasoline mixed with oil in the proper proportion. Always use a good quality 2-cycle oil that contains a fuel stabilizer.
To start the generic chainsaw, follow these steps:
1. Pull the choke all the way out
2. Press the fuel bulb serveral times to prime the carb - you can feel when the fuel flows into it.
3. Set the lock on the trigger to full speed.
4. Now, pull the starter rope until the saw sounds like it tried to start.
5. Press the choke in to the 1/2 way position.
6. Pull the rope until it starts.
7. Release the trigger lock and push the choke all the way in.

If starting it when it is warn, skip steps 1 and 4.
It is unlikely that the spark plug is the problem. If you replace it without properly setting the gap, you may make it worse. If you start trying to adjust the carb without knowing exactly what you are doing, you will make it much worse, You can try spraying some carb cleaner into the carb and pulling the rope to such the cleaner into the jets.
In the future, always add fuel stabilizer or oil with a stabilizer to you gas/oil mix. This prevents the varnishing caused by aging gasoline.

Your carburator is clogged.
1st make sure you have FRESH gas.
Empty and clean the fuel tank
Remove and disassemble the carburator and soak it in fresh gas for about 15 minutes to disolve any gunk.

Using a can of small carburator cleaner ( available at Lowes, Home Depot etc.) blow out all the ports.
reassemble and refuel with clean fresh gas
The little carbs clog easily

ON a Poulan 220 Pro all of the fuel lines are


Your fuel lines are routed like the schematic below. I suggest you replace the filter, all hoses (2 different sizes), and the purge button (bleeder).
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3706813-2_cycle_fuel_system_repair
Let us start with the bleeder. The 2 hoses that connect to the bleeder are different sizes (Important). If the nipples are the same size connect a hose temporarily to one of them and place the free end in a small container of mix (please be careful with open gasoline and as soon as it is no longer needed put it out of harms way.). Squeeze the bulb if it blows bubbles that is the return side, it gets the large hose and attaches to a fitting on the tank. If it appears nothing happens but when released fuel is drawn into the bleeder it requires a short section of small hose and attaches to one of the carburetor fittings.
A second small hose goes through the tank and connects to the carburetor just like the video including the filter. It feeds the carburetor like it has since before bleeders were installed. I am not certain which carburetor fitting connects to the tank or the primer, please leave them long enough to swap until the saw is running. Logic says the upper most fitting (air bleed) goes to the primer but that is not always true. The Poulan drawing is deceptive it appears the filtered line feeds the bleeder it does not!!!

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best. Fuel components and part numbers are listed but are on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly.
A link to a Poulan "PP220 Gas Saw Type 5 follows (may not be your saw):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/PP220-Gas-Chain-Saw-Type-5/75.PP220-Gas-Chain-Saw-Type-5.1.59.1.html

If your saw is not a Type 5 you can find the correct IPL here:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

it sits for 2 years so you have to general check and clean everything, first replace the battery, spark plugs oil filter(if any) have your oil change, clean and balance your carburator and air cleaner, remove your gas tank empty it and clean use new gas, if you can spray an WD40 on all wiring socket then start the bike

How do I install fuel lines on a poulan chain saw model 1950?From carburator to primer,from primer to fuel tank,two connections on each.


The smaller line comes from the fuel filter in the tank to the nipple on the side of the carb with the cover w/ 1large screw in the center, the other small line goes from the other nipple on the carb to the primer bulb, the larger line goes from the other nipple on the primer bulb back to the tank, and only gets pushed in about 1/2-3/4" into the tank. Hope this helps.

Poulan #2550 farmhand saw, Put a new carburetor on saw still not getting gas to carb?


Try emptying the fuel tank, and with small flashlight inspect the fuel line and the sump pick-up screen inside the tank. You may be able to gently retrieve it with a stiff wire hook. See if the hose is cracked/broken of if the screen is clogged. If all is well, be sure there are no kinks in the entire fuel line. 
Hope this helps

My Poulan 3500 chain saw will not start


My guess is that one of your fuel lines has a crack or small hole in it. Inspect these and replace if needed. let me know how it goes.
