The saw starts and revs fine but 75% of the time when i go to cut something the blade stops, but revs still ok. can someone please help?!

If the chain is engaged properly in the sprocket and you've got the correct tension on the chain and the chain stops when you set it into a cut, you are probably riding the saw too hard...meaning you are pushing too hard for the saw to cut and the centrifugal clutch is stopping rotation. If this is an older saw, the pads inside the centrifugal clutch are probably badly worn necessitating replacement of the assembly.

Sometimes on a smaller saw, if the chain is sharpened with an aggressive angle, the little pads start slipping are wear quickly.

If you have the chain tension tightened too much, it will bind in the guidebar and stop the centrifugal clutch from rotating.

How to sharpen a poulan 2150 chainsaw

You can find many useful videos on youtube that will help you with the sharpening of your chainsaw.

Below is a video from donnyboy73.

I have, however, found it much better to take my chains to my local shop and have them do it for me, especially if you have never done it before.
The key to a good cutting chainsaw, is a nice sharp chain.
It doesnt cost all that much to have them sharpened. I paid 8 dollars to have 2, 18 inch chains sharpened. I live in Pennsylvania, land of the tax, so I wouldn't think it would cost you too much.
I always have 4 chains on hand. When 2 need sharpened, I take them in and still have 2 more, and I know they are guaranteed, sharp.

The chain needs sharpened or replaced. You can purchase the tools from any hardware store, and sharpen the chain yourself in about 15 minutes. Don't worry, your saw is just fine!

When beginning to cut, the chain will operate and then stop while I am cutting a log. Would this be a clutch problem?

Does the chain continue spinning? If no (and gasoline) bad clutch. If yes I suspect the bar and chain are binding (cutting in an arch). That is often caused by a worn bar or improperly sharpened chain. Post back (below) if the latter and I will help with that too. Post back with the model number (358.#####) and I will help with clutch replacement.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

Brand new saw ... (x-mas present) ... chain came off after 9th cut ... I followed their instructions, but chain will still not turn ... and it's NOT BECAUSE IT'S TOO TIGHT? Has the clutch gone out already?...

You will need to remove the chain. Usually, the chain is damaged beyond repair after it jumps the bar. However, sometimes you can repair it with a flat file.

Inspect the chain for damaged links. Usually, the chain guide teeth that ride through the bar slot get damaged. It doesn't take much distortion of the guide teeth to bind in the bar slot. Sometimes, you can file the sides of these damaged guide teeth down enough to operate smoothly.

Be sure you check the tension of your chain after every 3-4 cuts so this doesn't become an issue. New chains will get play in them faster than used chains.

Be sure to also inspect your chain bar/bar sprocket for any damage.
