Starting a poulan 18 inch widthing chainsaw


Start by filling the fuel tank with a fresh mix of 50-1, fill the chain oil tank with non fling chain oil, sit the saw on the ground with the bar away from any obstructions, engage the chainbrake, switch the ignition on, press the fuel bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, pull the choke out, this should also engage the fast idle, crank the engine until it fires once, it will not run on choke, it is importent at this point you must push the choke back in, now crank the engine until it runs, flick the trigger to allow the saw to idle.

2nd use of chainsaw pp3516avx, it won't start, choke lever will not stay extended. I followed the instructions to start and nothing works


The choke system is connected to the half throttle position, if you lift the throttle trigger the choke pull will automatically return, whilst trying to start do not lift the throttle trigger, the starting procedure is, pump the primer bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, pull the choke pull fully out, this will switch the saw on and engage the half throttle, crank the engine until it fires once, do not continue to pull,it will actually not run on full choke, if you do continue to crank with the choke fully out, you will very quickly flood the engine, now push the choke fully in, now crank the engine until it fires up, lift the throttle trigger once, this will dissengage the half throttle, and it should now come down to idle.

How do I start rental model 96.


Place the saw on full choke with the switch on. Pull the rope until it fires. Place the saw on half choke, and pull again, and it will start running. Half choke should release as soon as you hit the trigger.

M842 chainsaw wont start when hot


I suspect your warm start procedure is the fault, the manual is not correct IMO. Any choke on a warm engine causes flooding, try this, if no better post back or return it for warranty replacement.

Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4).
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Hope this helps

Will not start


Check for spark

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You don’t have to bend up the electrode.

If spark present put a small amount of mix in the carburetor. Does it at least try to start?
If yes you most likely have a fuel delivery problem. Inspect for splits and holes in fuel lines especially at fittings and bends.
If no any number of problems. Try your friendly neighborhood chainsaw shop.

When chain saw is starte it goes to full throttle.


You understand there is a fast idle start position? If your saw is new it is triggered when the choke is pulled and remians in this position (even when choke pushed in) until the throttle is advanced once. Read your warm start instructions, it says pull clutch, push clutch, start. This is why we should buy saws from a chainsaw seller/mechanic NOT Home Depot!!!
I made the mistake ONCE of attempting to start mine without the fast idle engaged... my shoulder aches just thinking about it. GL
