Its almost certainly made by Poulan.
This may help you find an IPL at Sears, they are available:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/modelHelp.pd?modelNumberId=29
This lists all Poulans. It will be difficult to find your saw but it is here:
Poulan.com

It sounds as though the starter spring is broken.
This thread explains how to reinstall the spring.

The IPL for your saw shows all the parts and provides an idea of how they fit together. GL

Replace pullcord on craftsman 316.350840


I know that the starter assembly for Craftsman 316.350840 [ The 316 means it was made by MTD] this saw became became no longer available. But you can use this model number 41AY80AG983 [Remington also made by MTD] and get the same part (exception being that it will be Orange, instead of Black). Part number 753-06974

Can not pull cord all the out to start the saw


Sounds like the pull cord has become trapped round the spool. Remove starter housing and unwind the pull cord manually off the spool. Then wind the cord back on by hand. Be careful because the spool will be under tension from the rewind spring.

Have a problem with my electrical Kraftsman chain saw, the engine is running and the chain is rotating, but when I put it against the tree for cut, the chain will stop rotate bot the engine is still...


The main drive gear is slipping. This is caused by etiher worn teeth or worn bearings. If you pass the model number I can show you a diagram of where to look and what part or parts that have most likely failed. The drive gear is the weakest link but the motor can be shifting in the housing away from the drive gear. It only takes a bit less than 1/8 inch side play. The model number will be similar to this 358.341160

Most likely it is item 26 of this diagram:
http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/P0101241-00001.png

This example is for model 358.381160

How do i replace pull string on craftsman 20/14 chainsaw


Remove the cover containing the cord rewind mechanism, untie the cord's knot in the center of the mechanism and remove the old cord by unwinding it from the pulley. Thread the new cord through the hole it goes through on the outside and wind the recoil mechanism so that it has sufficient spring tension to rewind the new cord. Use something appropriate to immobilize the pulley while you thread the cord through the center and tie the knot. Slowly allow the pulley to retract and wind the new cord onto it. Replace the cover. As an aside, sometimes when the cord breaks and the pulley snaps back quickly, the rewind spring can break.

Craftsman gas chainsaw 18'' model 358 pull start repair


Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection, both hands and no women around work area!). I'm right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely inserted. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.
If you're lucky you can pull the cord out enough for a pretension then slightly raise and add the withdrawn cord to the spool. HTH

Blade wont tighten on craftsman elictric chainsaw


Sounds like the chain guides are missing.  They're flat steel parts, one on each side of the bar...Here's a husqvarna diagram:
http://wssemw.arinet.com/scripts/EmpartISAPI.dll?MF  Select side cover, guide plates.  Could be called anything by Craftsman!  If you have one of these on each side of the bar, then I'd guess you're missing washers under the nut(s).  Sears should have this available; I'm sure I have a blow-up diagram on microfische if it's an older model.
