What do you mean by flooding?
if it is overflowing?
try to remove the 4 screw underneath the carb,
take out the diaphragm,and then followed by float valve..
there is a tiny spring,be very careful...
stretch the spring a lil bit more at about 2mm...

as time passes,the diaphragm deteriorate and one way to correct them is by stretching the tiny spring to give more strain on the diaphragm...

this is what i did if i am too lazy to go out and buy the diaphragm kit..
only 10 bucks...hehe

Stihl saw problems it won't start and flood fuel in to the air filter why is this ?

There are several conditions and situations that this can occur, but let's try the most common. This is also for any STIHL saw that was manufactured before 2014, after that, the M-Tronic saws have a different starting method.
Normally this happens when the engine fired and it was not audible, and the rope has continued to be pulled with the choke on.
This method is approved, but EXTREME caution should be used, and the CHAIN BRAKE must be used.
CAUTION: Do NOT use the drop start method, this is not an approved starting method under any circumstance!
1) Place the saw on the ground that is clear of debris.
2) Set the Chain Brake
b) place the toe of your right shoe thru the rear handle,
c) support the saw top handle with your left hand,
d) pull the recoil with your right hand.
3) Make sure the choke is NOT applied, place the master control lever in the start position (one notch above the choke position)
NOTE: at this point, it helps if a second person can hold the throttle at the full or wide open position.
4) Make 6 rapid pulls (a few more may be required), you should hear the saw start to sputter, keep the throttle open until enough rpm is obtained that YOU the Operator can gain control of the throttle (the other person stands aside now in a safe position) and remove the chain brake. Keep the throttle open until the saw starts to run properly.
*NOTE 2: The chain brake is designed to not only stop the chain in case of 'kick back', but also is to be used in starting the saw until you have time to gain full operational control of the saw. However, extended rpms above clutch engagement can damage the brake band, overheat the drum bearing, damage the clutch shoes and clutch drum.

Do a complete tune up.
1-spark plug
2-carb filter
3-coil induction

And if possible try to open the piston cylinder head and clean the piston head and the head for carbon deposit.

I have a craftsman 55cc 18"chainsaw model #316350840 iannot get it started. it keeps flooding. i set the mag. and replaced the spark has spark and compression.please help.HMUNSTER

Flooding is caused by a plugged air cleaner, or lack of control by the diaphragm in the lower chamber of the carburetor. Usually, the diaphragm becomes hard or cracks and is unable to regulate the fuel volume in the lower chamber. There is also a needle valve in the lower chamber which the diaphragm controls that can become defective. Go to: for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetor theory and troubleshooting. This applies fairly well to other carburetor brands as well. Hope this helps!

ES335 wont start, fuse checked and oil present The black hand guard is upright I have tried to move it to check that it is in the correct position but no luck, I don't want to force it . The chain saw has...

I didn't know that chain saws had fuses? The black handle you are talking about is a chain break, push it forward allows the chain to drive, if chain break is back chain will not run around the bar, safety for saw kick backs.
If it will not start:
Check and see if it has fuel.
Is the switch in the on Position?
Do you have a fowl plug? is there spark?
Is the plug wire attached correctly?
Do you have fuel going to the carb?
Is your air cleaner, clean?
DO you smell gas, if so you have probably flooded it and now you will have to remove the spark plug and get rid of excess fuel or try starting the saw with the choke on.

Im trying to find out the mixture ratio of oil to gas for my craftsman 55cc 18 in bar chainsaw

Fuel oil mixture is deturmined by the brand of mixed fuel you use, not the machine. The machine will state what it's recommended oil brand states. Example a stihl chain saw will be 50:1 with stihl oil but if using echo oil it would be 35:1.

345 husqvarna chain saw will not run

If it idles it is not flooding out as it it most vulnerable to flooding at idle if the stalling is happening as you try to throttle it up it is likely starved for fuel. Start by changing the in tank fuel filter, and the spark plug. good chance that will solve your problem. If it does not Turn the high idle screw out in 1/8 turn increments try running the saw after each adjustment. Keep track of the amount that you turn the screw. you might have to put it back to its original position. Some times adjustment screws will vi berate out of adjustment and other times crud will cause fuel restriction opening the screw allows for a larger port for any restrictions to pass through. After you use the saw for a short time turn screw back in if it starts to stall at idle or you notice increased smoke.
