Homelite 3314 chainsaw starts but I cannot keep it running. There are adjusting screws on the carburetor but they are either covered with caps or round top screws so I cannot turn them.

This is called a california carb and these screws are made this way because they don't want you to do any adjustment,you can try to remove the carb and clean it yourself,i have had some luck(if its not too dirty) if you can get it started and then keep spraying in wd-40 in the carb it may pull the obstruction thru and melt the varnish out of the carb caused by the oil/gas mixture,also clean out the reed port on the exhaust as it carbons up over time and can cause back-pressure on the exhaust side

Testimonial: "This explains the "california carb" but there must be a way to adjust. I am thinking about cutting slots in the screws with by Dremel."

Running poor


Charlie:

You may have to adjust the fuel/air mixture on the carburetor. There are two small screws right next to each other on the carburetor. you should be able to see them without removing any cowlings. use a jeweler's screwdriver to adjust one or the other (or possibly both).
The adjustments are fine...and remember which way and how much you turned which screw so you can return to the previous setting. If you adjust enough so that the saw quits running altogether, you can GENTLY bottom both screws, then turn each one out one and a quarter turns. The saw will start... then you can continue to find the adjustment that will make the saw run properly.

Need to know if the adjustment screws on a Homelite Bandit UT10901B carb are adjustable--it does not have the plastic limiter caps I am used to seeing--now I know why I like to work on Stihl or Husqvarna


The Homelite Walbro carburetors use 'D' headed screws for the jets. A 'D' head screwdriver is necessary, although a thin-wall piece of brass tubing (from a hobby shop) that force-fits over the heads will probably work. Hope this helps!

Chainsaw runs full speed, will not idle.


Expose the carburetor so that you can observe the action of the throttle lever on the carburetor. The trigger should move the lever from the idle adjust screw to full throttle stop. If no movement observed, remove the trigger assembly from the front handle (make notes as you remove the pieces) and clean the area of sawdust/dirt accumulation. Recheck the action after everything is re-assembled before starting the engine. If the idle speed is still excessive, then turn the idle speed screw several turns CCW until the chain stops turning. Try wiggling the carburetor body to see if it has come loose from the engine. Hope some of this helps!

How to remove plastic limiter cap on (H) carburetor adjustment


If plastic cap is present, it should just pop off with a thin sharp hook. Look carefully at the screw heads--they may be 'D' heads which require a special screwdriver and are supposed to keep owners from moving the screws (thank the EPA for these). Only authorized saw servicing dealers have access to these tools and therefore are the only folks allowed to adjust these saws. Being nonconformist, I made my own by drilling the center of a 1/4" rod, sawed off one side somewhat and welded a flat across the cut. Hope this helps!

Homelite chainsaw won't stay running


Make sure you are using fresh fuel mix (50:1 ratio). Don't use boat motor oil in a saw--only modern synthetics made for saws. Always premix the oil and fuel thoroughly before adding to the saw. Check the fuel filter for plugging and the condition of all fuel lines, plus the primer bulb condition. Check all carburetor fasteners for tightness. Make sure the air filter and muffler are not plugged. If still no help, you may need to service the carburetor. For an excellent article on Walbro carburetors, go to: http://www.drystacked.com Pay particular attention to the placement of the lower diaphragm and the cover gasket--interchanging positions of them cause many headaches. Adjustment of the two jet screws require a special 'D' screwdriver which may necessitate a trip to a servicing dealer for adjustment. Hope this helps!

Carburator adjustment for Homelite xl 12 chain saw


Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns. This should get the engine running if it will. If it does not, check the lower diaphragm on the carburetor for hardness or cracking. You appear to be running on prime only--the carburetor doesn't seem to be pumping in fresh fuel. You may need to do a carburetor clean and re-kit. Check the fuel line condition and the fuel filter in the tank for plugging. Make sure the muffler and air cleaner are not plugged. Once you get the engine to continue running, warm the engine up. Open the throttle and adjust the H needle CW--the engine should start to speed up, but still 4-stroking. The proper setting is 4-stroking, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW so that the engine runs fairly smoothly, yet will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

Chainsaw will start but will not keep running. Saw is new Poulan chainsaw model 3314


Is this unit under warranty? If so, take advantage. If it is out of warranty, did it work well up to this point? The carburetor is not pumping fuel, but running for a short time on the prime. Remove the carburetor and check the body screws for tightness. Make sure the pumper port to the crankcase is open. If it is a Walbro brand carburetor, remove the lower cover (4-screws) and make sure the diaphragm is next to the body with the pin side in, then the thick gasket, and finally the cover. Hope this helps.

Homelite saw runs wide open(homelite ut10520)


There is a recall on the UT models, all you have to do is call the costumer service center for homelite. they will give you a number for the closest warrenty center that will adjust you throttle cable free of charge. I went through two UT 10520's before i started researching the problem.
