This sounds like carburetor trouble. These small carbs have a tendency to do just what you've described. Run like a champ until all the old gas in the carb is broken loose and then clogs the jets. Have the carb gone through and you will thank yourself. Hope this helps. good luck.

Homelite chainsaw will not start model #UT10822


Yep...You will also need to install at least a GND (gasket and diaphragm) kit if not a full carburetor repair kit. The fuel filter is probably clogged by now too. You may need to replace the fuel line(s).

Fuel oil mix,16 or 32


32:1 should be it. It is better to try this and if it runs VERY smokey and fouls the plug it may be 40:1.

Homelite 330 chain saw no lubrification to the chain


Allot of times this is caused by dirt plugging up the outlet. Pull the side cover that holds the bar on and clean using carb cleaner and compressed air. You should see a small metal tube or hole where the chain runs at the top, make sure it is clear. If you remove the cain and the bar you can start and rev the saw to make sure oil is weeping, it won't squirt out.

Need gas/oil mix for Homelite 330 10604A, HJ


To the best of my recollection the 330 is an older model saw and should be running about a 16:1 ratio. 8oz. of oil to 1 gallon of fuel. Hope this helps.

Note: You're always better being a bit richer (lower ratio) than you are leaner (higher ratio).

Hi how to tune homelite 330 chain saw carby, idle


Before adjusting anything, check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Tighten all carburetor fasteners. Make sure you have fresh fuel mix in the tank. Does the primer bulb pull fresh fuel into itself when pumped? Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow it to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Proper final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW for fairly good idle, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to run. Hope this helps!

Your fuel line may be pinched off where is routes to the carb.
Check and make sure that the vent in the fuel cap is clear so you are getting air in the tank

Spark to the plug?
Second line to body of saw is the vacuum from the lower 1/2 of cylinder

I have an old model 1975 , what miks petrol/oil is right.


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 2gal premium/8oz chainsaw 2-cycle engine oil - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (1gal premium/2.6oz Stihl 2-cycle engine oil)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few weeks. Anything over 1.5 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode. HTH

Homelite 33cc 16" UT109470 not using oil (auto oiling system)


Hey secureman777..........I have a Homelite 330, and I had the same problem. On mine, there is a rubber tube with a metal screen on the end inside the chain oil reservoir. The screen got all gunked up and wouldn't allow the oil to get sucked up by the oil pump. To get to it, you need to drain the oil and you should be able to see it down at the bottom of the reservoir. I used a long magnet to bring it out of the tank so I could clean it. That's all mine needed. I hope yours is that simple. It could also be the diaphragm inside the oil pump. If your saw isn't too old, they probably still sell the diaphragm. My saw is a 1981 and they don't make the diaphragm any more...............Good luck with your saw.
