Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetor theory and troubleshooting. Pay particular attention to the placement of the gasket/diaphragm in the lower section of the carburetor. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Hope some of this helps!

What are the air and gas settings for a poulan micro XXV chain saw


adjust the L screw in fully till right in,then out 1.5 turns,same with H screw.Then start saw,adjust L screw in or out slowly till you get max revs.You may need to lower idle via idle screw if revs too high.When screw cant acheive better revs,reset idle.Then,rev saw to max revs,adjusting H screw to get max revs,then when max revs acheived,turn screw anti clockwise 1/4 turn out.That gives it enough petrol to cool the tip of the plug

My e series 142 spins the chain and idles insanely fast when I have the choke pulled out. Then when I give it throttle it calms down and then I can barely keep it idling. with throttle all the way pulled...


Check air filter- clean or replace, Make sure you have fresh fuel, A new spark while you are giving it a service, Do you know how to tune the saw? Start with basic settings 1 turn on the low and 1 turn on the high And adjust from there, You might have turned the idle up too high. The choke should always be fully in when saw is running. Hope this is a good start

After starting and letting it idle for 30 seconds I start to cut but it starts to die when I give it gas it goes for a while then dies


What I do with my stihl saws is after starting I let it warm up for a few seconds and then run it at full throttle for about thirty seconds. If your saw does not want to keep running I would check to make sure air filter is clean. Next you can adjust carb.setting for idle and hi speed,check your manual for instructions. Also I would remove and clean spark plug,check gap and reset or replace as needed. Make sure your gas oil mix is proper and gas has not been setting for a long time,no more than a couple of months without some type of fuel stabilizer. I use either STA-BIL or sea foam at a rate of 2 to4 ounces per gallon of gas. About the only other thing I might suggest is to check the feul filter. They usually are located on fuel pick up line inside gas tank and can be a pain to get to. Good luck and I hope this helps Thanks

Poulan chain saw mod. SM4018 Hard to start & won't accelerate


Your carburetor needs cleaned. It may also need a carburetor kit, depending on how old or how long it has been since service. While you have it apart, you may as well clean or replace the air filter and check fuel lines for cracks or brittleness. If you need tips on how to clean carb. or changing fuel lines, just let me know.

Husky 455 dies out at full throttle or under load


Your carb may be the issue but your ignition coil could be the culprit. Once they start going bad, they can act up intermittently or give various symptoms from day to day. The fact that your saw dies at full load or under load, probably means that when your saw gets hot or requires more spark, your coil is not able to provide it. Your carb is easy enough to clean out, you can take it all apart and clean all screens, etc....

I just replaced my coil due to the exact same symptoms and now my saw runs great. $60 off ebay and you can put it on in 15 minutes yourself. Check your carb first though

Poulan Wild Thing starts great but as soon as I try to cut it die


The carb low idle needs to be adjusted this is fairly common among the Poulan chain saws. Once you adjust the low idle from factory setting it will work
