The symptoms you describe sound like it's running short of fuel as though there is a pinhole in the fuel line leading to the carburetor. If you can see bubbles in the fuel line you have a small leak and that's all it takes to make that happen. Less likely but still potential reason is air leaking past the crankshaft seals leaning out the engine, if the engine has more than 25 hours on it the rings may be shot.

Rebuilt carb same problem engine runs at full throttle but when release throttle lever engine dies

Idle circuit is not working properly on the carb. If you have cleaned it as you say and are still having hassles you might just want to get a new one since working on those things can be a hit/miss situation and very frustrating.

Are you sure that you have the idle circuit jet adjusted properly? If adjusted too far in, engine will not get enough fuel and starve - shuts off.

Need to adjust hi lo idle settings but unsure how to start this process saw is poulan wild thing saw idles too fast and fast idle needs to come down

If idle speed is the only problem, there is a screw (not the two jet screws H and L) for this purpose. Turn the screw CCW until the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

My Poulan runs for a few minutes then idles down shuts off. Get it running again does same thing

Check the governor spring to see if it is streched out or the bracket it attaches to is bent,this can cause the problem. Also the carb may need cleaned and rebuilt,if it contains a diaphram gasket it could be bad causing it to die.

Poulan 3400 chainsaw throttle trigger

Its a missing or broken spring in the handle(trigger). If you look inside the handle you should see a circular spring around the post of the trigger. This spring returns trigger to idle position. If its missing or broken the trigger won't spring back.
