'L' is the idle jet screw and 'H' is the full throttle screw. Make sure the air cleaner is not clogged. Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. Start the engine and allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Turn H CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4 stroking. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L CW for fairly smooth running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine keeps running. Hope this helps!

Fuel adjustment on a homelite chain saw ut 104002


Hi Alex Sachs
Before you remove or try to adjust your low and high speed jets you should always count the number of turns it takes to lightly seat the idle mixture screw and high speed needle adjusting screws.
Be sure to write the number of turns down on a piece of paper so you will know how many turns from the seated position to open the jets when you go to reinstall them, or if you remove them for cleaning or replacement.
If you have aready tried to adjust them then the adjustments below should get it running for you for final adjustment when warm.
Normally you will adjust your idle jet to 1/2-3/4 turn open from the bottom seated position.
Then you will re-adjust the low speed of the engine when the engine is warm by turning the idle screw in or out till the engine runs smoothly at idle speed, around 1200 RPM.
The high speed jet is adjusted to 1 1/2- 1 3/4 open from the bottom seated position, after the engine is warm.
Then re-adjusted by turning the High Speed jet adjustment screw in or out till the motor runs smoothly at high speed.
Alway use the "lightly seated" method if you have not changed the screw settings.

I have an old homelite super xl saw and what i need to know is the high and low adjustments as well as spark plug gap


For the high and low speed jets turn all the way in and turn counter clockwise 1 1/4 turns to start with and continue a bit more until the saw runs a max speed(go by ear) and idling speed(idle down enough so chain does not spin while finger off triger). For the spark plug gap, go about 20 thousands of an inch. I hope this helps you out.

Homelite chainsaw model 4620c will not idle unless it is in the half choke position


If the jet screws have slot heads, set 'L' CCW about 1/2 turn more or less. If proper, the engine should idle fairly well, yet allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. If the jet screws have 'D' heads, you will need to either make a 'D' head screwdriver, or take the saw to a service dealer for adjustment. If the chain is trying to turn after the above adjustment, set the idle speed screw CCW until the chain stops trying to turn. Hope this helps!

I have an old Homelite XL chainsaw that still works but that could use some carburetor adjustment because it frequentlyshuts down between cuts. I do not have a manual and I did not see one listed. ...


The H jet needle should be set so that the engine will 4-stroke at full speed, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. The L jet needle should be set so that the engine will 'follow the throttle', but idle fairly well. Adjust the idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to run. Check the fuel lines for condition and the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Hope this helps!

Can't adjust carburator.


look on the carburetor. there will be 2 screws right beside eachother. one is an idle jet and the other is the main jet. if you want faster or slower idle speeds, adjust idle jet. if you want more power, adjust the main jet. you have to get them set just right . they might smoke a little bit because you are throwing more fuel to it which means you are getting a richer mix

Hi how to tune homelite 330 chain saw carby, idle


Before adjusting anything, check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Tighten all carburetor fasteners. Make sure you have fresh fuel mix in the tank. Does the primer bulb pull fresh fuel into itself when pumped? Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow it to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Proper final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW for fairly good idle, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to run. Hope this helps!
