Question about Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"
Take the saw outside and have a fire extinguisher handy.
With the switch in the OFF position, remove the spark plug and SLOWLY pull the rope.
If you notice raw, liquid fuel coming from the spark plug hole you have a fire hazard in you bare hands!
Gradually increase pulling speed to see if you notice any fuel vapors or mist coming from the spark plug hole. If you do, you have found the problem: It's flooded.
Continue pulling rope and use an air blow gun to LIGHTLY blow into the spark plug hole and dry the cylinder. You should pull 20 or 30 times while blowing air in.
If the cylinder is bone dry reattach the spark plug wire to the plug and touch the outer shell of the plug (or the threads of it) to a metal surface on the saw's engine (AWAY from the spark plug hole!) You can use any metal object to conduct the electricity and increase your reach if needed. Turn the switch back on and pull the rope medium speed and check for spark on the electrode of the plug. If no spark, turn switch to other position and repeat.
NOTE: IT WILL NOT SHOCK YOU as long as you maintain contact with the outer shell of the spark plug and the engine's metal parts.
If spark is present, reinstall plug and try again.
Be sure the choke lever is set properly for either cold or warm starts (whichever applies) and it should start easily for you in the future.
Hope this helps!
