SOURCE: my 345 chainsaw bogs down when it hits wood

There are two idle screws one high, and one low. Your high adjustment idle screw needs to be adjusted.

SOURCE: Chainsaw won't start

Try getting a new fuel filter. I sounds like its not getting fuel.
Also make sure that you are getting spark.

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

Saw starts runs good then when i start cutting it

Hi Jason:
Make and model might help but here's two ideas:
1) Remove muffler and clean it. They can get plugged up with carbon and the saw will run at low RPM but will quit because of excess back pressure when you try to rev it up.
2) Set the high and low speed carb settings. Start the saw then gradually increase engine speed until full throttle. Screw the hi-speed needle in slowly. If RPM immediately drops, back it out until Rpm increases, then starts to drop. Screw back in until peak rpm reached, then starts to drop. Back out to peak, then 1/3 turn more.
Set low speed so engine runs smoothly but chain does not turn.
Hope this helps.

McCullock MAC 742 sieze

I suspect it has seized, thje hottest part of the engine will have been around the exhaust, so remove the muffler and take a look at the condition of the piston through the open exhaust port, if the piston is dry and scuffed then it has seized, a piston seizes due to a lack of lubrication ( no oil film between the cylinder wall and the piston skirt ) a number of things can cause this, not enough oil in the fuel, wrong type of oil in the fuel, over loading due to blunt cutting equipment, running too lean on the carb settings ( too high revs )

I have a 20 HP Honda outboard. It starts easily; but any attempt to increase speed either in or out of gear results in immediate cut off of the engine. On starting, it will idle normally for about three...

fuel delivery issue. it sounds like it will run on whats in the float bowl then die. once it refills the bowl (slowly) it runs on that again. check that the tank vent is working properly and that there are no blockages in the fuel lines

Mccolluch Mac 463 chainsaw runs erratically

clean carb and if that doesn't do it replace crank seals it's sucking air in the crank seals causing it to run lean and starv for fuel, also a good indication is does it rev high where you cant get it to idle down , then when you do it is erractic

Got a stihl hs75 starts and runs up to 3/4 revs but cuts out on full revs what could be the problem?

Hi, basically its starving for fuel in the upper revs. Check the fuel hose between the tank and carby, they are prone to perishing. If ok it may just need the high speed screw backing out a bit. Regards Phil.

Need instruction on how to adjust carberator

Adjusting carbs on chainsaws is not to be taken on lightly, there will normally be three screws, an L screw, an H screw, and an idle scre, the L screw will increase the fuel mixture from idle to half throttle ( they are fuel screws not air screws ) the H screw will adjust from half throttle to maximum revs, start with a base setting of between one turn and one and a half turns out, start the saw and warm through, allow it to idle, if need be increase the idle screw to get an idle, turn the L screw in slowley, the revs will increase as the mixture leans off, it will reach a point where it starts to die, now back it off a quarter of a turn, blip the throttle, the saw should pick up clean, if it has a flat spot increase the L screw slightley, now set the idle so it idles without the chain moving on the bar, now screw the H screw in to get full revs, be aware this should be set with an engine rev counter, do not exceed the manufacturersmax revs, hobby saws normally run at about 12500 rpm with an idle speed of 3000 rpm.

Mac 335 chainsaw won't start /run

Start with basic stuff first, drain the fuel tank and re fill with clean fuel oil mix, press the purge bulb ten or so times to pull the fresh fuel into the carb, now try again, if no better remove the spark plug and check for a spark ( make sure the ignition switch is on ) no spark try a new plug, still no spark check for wires shorting out, if ok replace the ignition unit, if it has a good spark is the plug getting wet with fuel, if not it may have a blockage in the carb, this will require a carb re build, if the plug is wet remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston through the exhaust port, any damage here and the saw will require a re build and possible new cylinder and or piston.

Can't rememeber what fuel or oil it needs and how to start it

Start with a 40-1 mixture this should not hurt engine for a long time if you are just a casual user. The oil in the chain reservoir is chainsaw bar oil and I usually top off each time I refill the fuel. To start Turn on switch, close choke, hold throttle to open position, You may need to place saw on the ground hold down with foot in the handle while pulling cord. Once it tries to start place choke in mid position and try to start again. Once it is running place choke in full open position.
