    Loosten the fuel cap after you shut it down and let us know if better. I think the fuel vent may be bad. The fuel gets hot, vaporizes, pressurizes the tank and floods the engine. Reply below please.

    older saws use 16:1 gas oil mix and will overheat if 30:1 or 40:1 is used .

When it won't start, remove the spark plug, lay the base on engine metal with the wire on, and pull through. The spark should be blue and snappy. If nothing, try a fresh plug. If still nothing, the ignition module may be failing with heat. Try blowing out sawdust from the engine and case with compressed air to improve cooling. Does the engine 4-stroke when not cutting, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting? Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Hope some of this helps!

Craftsman 18" chain saw 42cc. Starts and runs fine. Will not idle after running for a while. Will not restart when hot. Will start after the saw cools down.


I had a 2 cycle snow thrower that acted similarly. It needed a new diaphragm. When they get old they act up. I could never see a physical difference between the good and bad one but the new one fixed it. It's a flat rubber part that is in the carburetor. Call Sears parts or visit them on-line to get a parts breakdown of the carb.

What would cause a poulan chain saw to quit running after about ten minutes of cutting


The only temperature sensitive part I can think of is the condenser. In most saws it is under the flywheel with the points. Some newer saws have an electronic ignition module. If that is the case the module must be replaced.

Sears 19 hp twin 42 inch tractor, won't start if hot


Hi
Two things come to mind. First it could be not getting enough fuel when hot due to carb adjustment being too lean. That could be that the float level in the carb is set too low or the low speed jet is set too lean. When cold the choke circuit in the carb supplies the extra fuel required.
Second in some enjines that have low compression they start cold but when hot the compression drops below 60 psi and makes starting very difficult until engine cools down.
I suspect a fuel problem.
