Firstly, the answer re fuel going up the line is YES!

It sounds like a lack of compression. Take out sparkplug and place finger over cavity whilst pulling starter cord. The pressure should be strong enough to push your finger off the hole. If not, then the rings are shot or there is a hole in the top of the piston.

This will cause poor run in the fuel line to the carburetor. so the carbi is possibly empty or not full enough. Check the float level or that the float, actually floats. It sounds that that float is OK as its not flooding, but take a look anyway it may be jammed shut.
Lastly.. check the spark lead where it goes inside the body as this screws onto a screw to make contact with the inside of the leed. Get a new leed as these carbon based leeds fail after a short time anyway.

Presumne you checked it was actually sparking well?
These are the things that commonly affect chain saws and brush cutters

Check the oil hole filler and see if the oil has fuel in it. This is a good indication of poor rings and holes in psiton

Just purchased today 14 in. poulan starts but wont idle

Make sure you are using 40:1 ratio fuel mix.

With a chain saw owners manual usually recommends running engine for at least 60-120 seconds to warm it up before engine temperature is enough to where engine will idle.

My chainsaw poulan p3314 will run fine for about five minutes, then cuts out and wont start until it cools down....???

Sounds like the engine is overheating and seizing. Most of the time this is a cooling or oil problem. Check the cooling fan for debris. Make sure you use the right oil mix.

My 14-inch Poulan chain saw (2055) was working great, then it began to loose power and stumble, then stop. It restarted a couple of times, but had no power. I've checked the gas, oil, and free movement...

Two items you can check:

1. There is most likely a spark arrestor screen on the muffler. These can become clogged with carbon and choke out your saw. If it is removeable, usually by taking out a single screw on the screen, you can clean it with a wire brush.

2. Check the compression of your cylinder. It should have a minimum of 100#.

Saw is a 14 inch model 1950. Saw starts but won't run

Check the fuel filter, air filter and muffler for plugging. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel after several pumps? Hope this helps!

Poulan 14 inch won't start

No. Try this first before you destroy it!!

First, check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

If they are o.k., then you will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb. cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. You should be able to see daylight through it.

Use a Den Tek Brush, (, to clean the small portals in carb. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the cleaning doesn't work, then buy a carb. kit abd replace all appropriate parts.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.
