Loosen the fuel cap when you shut it down tighten it before you restart. If this fixes it you have a plugged fuel vent. HTH

This sounds as if you need a new spark plug or else pull and clean the one that's in it now

My chain saw starts just fine. It will work for about 30 minutes cutting well. After about 30 minutes the engine begins to miss and stall under load. Shortly thereafter the saw will not restart until it...


This sounds very much like a bad ignition unit, if they are going to break down they will do it when they are hot, the only answer here is to replace the unit.

This homelite chainsaw is bran new


Remove the spark plug and check for blue and snappy spark. If weak or nothing, try another spark plug. If still improper spark, return the machine for replacement under warranty. Make sure you have followed all instructions for re-start. Good luck!

Need replacement Chain oil pump


Go to the Homelite web site, which will get you to HCPI Electronics Parts catalog. You will need the model number. The parts are illustrated as a break-away drawing for various portions of the saw. Hope this helps.

Runs well untill it gets hot. then cuts out


If it's the little xl model, it's probably the ignition coil breaking down when it gets hot and therefore it can't and won't be able to handle a load. Also, scarred pistons skirt or rings could also be some of the problem here. Make sure your mix for a Homelite saw is 40:1 not 50:1 like most saws are. Homelite seems to run better with a heavier oil mixture. Good luck.

Starts ok when cold. acts like it's out of fuel when hot.


Clean or change the sparkplug. Also make sure you have fresh gas and the proper fuel mix.
