Check the tensioner screw, it could be too tight. Loosen the slack and the chain should move. And of course do this while its off.

Chainsaw want idle why?


Try adjusting the idle 5crew on the carb. Its usually marked with an [ I ]
To get it just right, make sure your chain brake is off, screw in the idle 5crew, the saw will rev and the chain will start to turn. Now back the idle off until the chain stops moving and the engine is ticking over nicely.

Chain wont move


Dont mean to be rude, but are you sure the brake is off? make sure you can pull the hand guard fully back to the top handle of the saw, this will ensure the brake is off, if still no better there is either a problem with the clutch or sprocket, remove the side cover and inspect these components.

Poulan chain saw how to get old chain drive sprocket off.


You'll have to stop the crankshaft from moving. The easiest way to do this is to take the spark plug out, pull the starter rope out a little ways, and stuff some of it into the spark plug hole. Spin the sprocket until it stops turning, that will put the piston at the top where it can't pass TDC and stops the crank. Turn the sprocket until it comes off then put your new one on.

Chain will not stop spinning on the Poulan Pro 42 cc 18 inch chainsaw, will cut wood with out pulling trigger. Runs is very vast, dies when pull trigger.


I would say it has an air leak, through a gasket or crank seal, make sure the carb is tight and sealing properly.

I have a poulan pro 4018. THe chain saw will start, but it appears that the choke is on full blast. As soon as it starts, the chain is moving - unsafe at the moment - I can use it as long as I don't...


Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Turn the idle speed screw (T) CCW somewhat to prevent the chain from turning at idle. If the above doesn't allow the engine to run without the choke on, then remove the carburetor, clean the interior with spray carburetor cleaner and check the diaphragm in the lower chamber for flexibility with no holes or cracks. Hope this helps!

Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other problems. The idle speed screw (turned CCW) will slow the engine down. Hope this helps!

I can start up the chainsaw, but chain doesn't spin


Is the chain brake on? Pull the lever your knuckles are against toward you to unlock the anti-kickback brake.
