Check the carburator mixture, if its running too ritch...it will cut out quickly at idle, if its lean...it will sputter out under load. make sure your oil/fuel mix is of the right ratio as well, all motors are different

What are the steps to getting the chain saw started and idling? What are next steps to cut tree limbs and oil the chain? This chain saw was given to me without a manual.


If you are a complete novice you should seek some training before attempting to use the machine, as you do not say what model this is we will go through basic starting procedures, fill the fuel tank with fresh fuel mixed with two stroke oil at 25-1, fill the chain oil tank with a non fling chain oil, switch the ignition switch to on, pull the choke fully out, push in the deco valve if fitted, place the machine on the ground, with the tip of the bar away from any obstructions, put your right foot through the back handle to hold the saw down, place your straightened left arm and hand onto the top handle again to hold the machine, now with your right hand crank the engine until it fires once, at this point push the choke fully back in, crank the engine once again until it fires up, flick the trigger to dissengage the part throttle , the machine should now idle.
Be carefull.

Chain saw runs great until I start cutting tree, then it stalls out. I've only used it three times since I bought it last month.


I would say its running too lean, start by replacing the fuel filter in the tank, check the fuel hose up to the carb for leakage, if this does not help unscrew the H screw on the carb 1/4 turn anti clockwise, this will richen the fuel mixture, does this help the running? if not there may well be a fuel blockage in the carb.

THE CHAIN SAW RUNS. THE CHAIN XS NEW. IT DOESN'T CUT THE SMALLEST OF BRANCHES


I don't mean to sound offensive, but is the chain on the right way? I've put 'em on backwards, even started the saw before I noticed. And is the chain running when the motor runs?

If the chain is right then you may have gotten a chain with a bad grind. Never heard of it but it could sure happen. Get back with me if the chain is right and it's turning- we'll get it to cut.

The saw is a 385xp. We have changed bars and chains numerous times. When sawing the bar gets hot enough to fry an egg and the chain stretches out. Onlynable to saw a minute or teo at the time. bar gets...


Overheating the chain/bar is usually caused by insufficient oil getting to the chain, but can be caused by the chain being too tight to begin with (you should be able to turn the chain by hand), grit in the chain groove, or a poorly sharpened chain. The saw has an oil volume adjustment screw on the lower part of the case near the chain return area. Turning it CCW should increase oil flow. Oil volume can be judged by running the saw tip at speed near some cardboard for a moment--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Chain sharpening condition can be judged by the sawdust residue coming from the cut--if a powder-like material, the teeth are not sharp or are improperly filed. You should not have to bear down excessively on the saw to make it cut quickly. Hope some of this helps!

I have a 18" Craftsman gas chain saw. It will not keep running, after two or three cuts it just stops and cannot be started again until it sits for 15 to 20 minutes. I have cleaned the air filter and...


Try removing the fuel cap for a moment, then try restart. If ok, check the fuel vent for plugging. Check the fuel filter for plugging. Inspect the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Check for spark when it stops--it may be the ignition module failing when hot. Check for sawdust and dirt plugging the ventilation system--blow it out with compressed air. Does the engine 4-stroke at speed when not cutting, but does 2-stroke when cutting? Make sure the chain is being oiled while running. Hope this helps!

Starts, idles and runs but quits after a few seconds of cutting


Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. One screw adjusts the idle stop (idle speed) position and the H and L jet screws set fuel mixture for high speed and idle speed mixture respectively. Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly) then back each out CCW 1-1/2 turns. This is a basic setting and should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H CW until the engine starts to speed up, but 4-strokes. Correct adjustment is when the engine 4--strokes running free, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW until the engine idles fairly well, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust the idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to run. Hope this helps!

How do i know if chain is on correctly/


Does the chain move when the motor is started? Make sure the chain doesn't droop from the lower side of the bar and the teeth cut toward you on the bottom side. The chain should not be so tight that you can't move it by hand. Run the saw for a few moments with the tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Make sure that the chain is properly sharpened and cuts without undue effort. Hope this helps!

Chain saw cuts great at start, not so good about 1/2 way


All things are possible but it isn't likely the bar is bent. Are you getting fairly large chips or sawdust? Try raising the rear of the saw a little when she quits cutting. so you have a small contact area instead of a wide flat cut. Run a flat file at an angle along both edges of the bar to remove any wire edge. Let me know what you find you have piqued my curiosity. Lou

I just bought a Poulan 16'' chain saw with quick adjust chain tensioning. The chain seems to loosen after a short time of use and the chain comes off. Quite disturbing.


1. It is common for a new chain to stretch. that is probably what occurred
2. I'd hold the tip of the bar 2-3" above a stump or even a news paper, rev it up for a few seconds and look for a line of bar oil. If none is visible your bar oil reservoir is empty or saw isn't oiling. If you added oil and it's not oiling return it to where you purchased it.

Chain saw starts runs, bur saw won't start next time it is needed, craftsman chain saw


Steam vacuum? no clue but on your chain saw make sure you check the choke. it would explain why it wouldn't start again.
