Check for a plugged fuel filter and defective fuel lines. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Check for spark at the plug--it should be blue and snappy with a new plug. If ok, squirt in some fuel mix in the plug hole, replace the plug, and see if it will pop a couple of times. If ok, make sure the primer bulb draws fuel into it after several pumps. If still won't run, remove the lower chamber of the carburetor and check the diaphragm for flexibility and no holes. Hope this helps!

My six year old chainsaw won't start?


If it ran before you stored it and you left gas in it, you can thank ethanol for your troubles.Try fresh mixed gas with a heavy does of ethanol treatment or Seafoam in the tank, prime it and try to start it 10 times, then let it soak for a few days and try again. Good luck

Ran out of gas and filled it back up ,now it won't start


If it has a primer pump this as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, this will prime the carb, now try again with full choke.

Poulan Pro Chainsaw(PP4218AV) worked for a while now won't start


It's possible that the carburetor diaphragm in the lower chamber has hardened or cracked. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel after several pumps? If not, try moving the line that comes up from the fuel filter to the carburetor over to the primer port that normally connects to the other carburetor connection. Try to pump fuel again--if successful, then there is blockage within the carburetor which should be cleaned with spray carburetor cleaner inside and out. There is a small filter screen inside the main body that can be easily plugged with stale fuel. Hope this helps!

Difficult to start


Make sure the air cleaner is clean and oiled. this can cayse big trouble in two cycle motors, also if yo uare using fuel from last year dispose of it and start fresh, the gas will evaperate to a point even if it smells and looks like it is still there.
