If checking spark make shore the out side if plug is earthed to chain saw.
Fresh clean fuel, clean fuel filter filter pull exhaust off and check piston is ok. Than check for flooding. start there.

SOURCE: Chain Saw, Stihl Model 011, cutting off

I've been messin with my poulan 2150 that was doing the same thing. Good, fresh gas, good spark,etc. I noticed whenever I loosened the fuel cap it would literally spray gas out! alas, I removed the muiffler assy and the darn thing fired up the first pull! I've got the muffler parts soaking in gas right now and I'm sure this the problem. It just makes sense especially if you use the same 'mixed fuel' can for weed eater, blower,etc. Check your's out, it could very well be your problem too! GOOD LUCK

There may be a fuel delivery problem. Check the fuel filter on the free end of a hose in fuel tank (manufacturer recommends an annual replacement). Check all fuel delivery lines especially at fittings and bends for cracks and holes. If those are good then the likely cause is internal parts of the carburetor are dirty or have failed. HTH

Fuel can chemically decompose in as little as two weeks, especially if it's an ethanol blend. Try to avoid ethanol-blended fuels.

Can't start chainsaw


Walter:

gently run the fuel and air mixture screws on the carburetor all the way closed (clockwise).then turn them out one and a quarter turns each. That setting should allow the saw to start if you are getting fuel to the carburetor. Once the saw starts, make fine adjustments to the fuel/air mixture screws until the saw runs to your satisfaction.

Relatively new (used once) 45cc petrol chainsaw starts fine but when you use the throttle to make the chain go round it does so slowly before cutting out. There is plenty of fuel and plenty of chain oil


Make sure the chain oil is reaching the chain. Can you turn the chain by hand fairly easily? If not, then the chain tension should be adjusted--loosen the drive cover fasteners enough to allow the bar to move up and down somewhat. Turn the chain adjuster screw CCW so that the chain can be moved by hand, but the chain should not droop from the lower bar edge. Re-tighten the cover fasteners and recheck the chain tension. If ok, try to run the saw again--it should run at full speed, 4-stroking lightly, but immediately 2-stroking when cutting. Make sure the fuel mix is fresh using a modern synthetic saw oil and shaking the container thoroughly each time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Hope that some of this helps!

Chain saw starts fine, idles fine, and powers up fine when not cutting a long how when starting to cut a log it bogs down and dies. Does anyone know how to fix this problem or what’s wrong with the chain...


Two things that can cause this problem. 1. Your carburetor is not set properly and is not letting the engine get enough fuel under a load. 2. Your chain is binding when you put the chain bar down on the log. Make sure your front chain sproket is turning free and is not too sloppy.

Chain saw won't start


Check the fuel filter for plugging (which is common when fuel is left in the machine over winter storage). You should run the carburetor dry after emptying the fuel tank for storage.Hope this helps!

Remove, clean and reinstall the muffler and spark arrestor, if no better the "L" needle may need adjustment.
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com

  • CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
  • Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
  • Clean the spark arrestor and muffler; if the saw cannot exhale it cannot inhale.
  • There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full - may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.
Most chainsaws die because they are are run lean. I am going to inject a little Lou theory here. Air leaks and defective fuel delivery systems account for most chainsaw failures. Constant adjustment of needle valves can easily camouflage more serious problems that result in burning up your saw.

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

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
