Question about Homelite Consumer Products 9.0 Amp, 14 In. Chainsaw
How can I solve the above problem?
Hot running saws are either in need of cleaning the engine and inner case of accumulated sawdust and dirt with compressed air, or the engine is running lean which will result in severe engine damage if allowed to continue. Check the air cleaner, fuel filter, and muffler for any plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay of any kind. Make sure the chain is being properly lubricated and sharpened. Check the carburetor fasteners for tightness including those mounting it to the engine. Remove the spark plug and look for a light to medium tan color on the inner insulator. If burning white, it is not getting enough fuel. Have the two jet screws been adjusted? If so, turn both screws to CW stops (lightly), then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H CW until the engine starts to speed up, but continues to 4-stroke. Proper adjustment is 4-stroking at speed, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This produces best power and least heat. Allow to idle and adjust L CW until the engine runs fairly well, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning , but the engine continues to run. Check chain oiling by holding the bar tip near a piece of cardboard and run the engine fast for couple of moments--the chain should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope some of this helps!
