Question about Poulan Pro 16-Inch 38 cc Anti-Vibration Chainsaw #PP3516AVX
Geting fuel ok, switch on ,chock out ,will not start.
I suspect your ignition module is bad try this.
Ignition Coil Test
You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. There is no need to bend the electrode. HTH
It may be flooded too. You shouldn't need to choke it for more than 2-3 pulls.
1, Ignition on/off to on
2. Pull (close) choke (also sets fat idle); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually twice)
3. Push (open) choke (fast idle maintained) pull starter until it starts. Usually first pull)
1., 2. (without pulling starter), 3..
Hope this helps

Testimonial: "recommedation very useful thank you. you guys are good."
Make sure the air cleaner foam is clean. I sometimes use a squirt of "Starting Fluid"into the carb. If it has spark and you've replaced the plug, you'll get it to rev-up and run if the fuel line is supplying gas/mix. Don't overuse the starting fluid because it removes the oil from the piston and can cause excessive wear, but the 2cycle mix will recoat the cylinder with oil once it starts. It's a quick fix to see if the engine will run, but if it starts momentarily and then stops , means there are other problems present.
