Question about Poulan 14" Chainsaw
Does the primer bulb pump fuel into the bulb quickly (3 or 4 pumps)? Check the fuel filter, air filter and muffler for plugging. Is the fuel fresh and properly mixed with a modern synthetic oil at 50:1 ratio? When it quits, remove the spark plug and test for blue, snappy spark. If it looks weak, try anew plug first (gapped at 0.020"), then remove the left side cover to expose the flywheel and the ignition module. Turn the flywheel magnets under the poles of the module, insert a thin business card into the gap, loosen the module screws and allow it to contact the magnets. Re-tighten the screws and rotate the flywheel to roll out the card. Turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gap doesn't close up. Test again for spark. If much better, replace the cover and pour a little fuel mix into the plug hole. Replace the plug and pull through--it should pop several times (and maybe even run correctly). If it at least pops, then concentrate on the fuel system. Check the fuel lines for rot or damage. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. If still having problems, disassemble the carburetor and clean it with spray carburetor cleaner. Check the lower diaphragm for hardness or cracking. Have the jet screws been adjusted? Hope some of this helps!

My $350 Echo PB-500T seized up. I almost cried.
The solution was to drain the fuel tank.
Refill fuel tank with an 2-cycle Oli/gas mixture.
40:1 =3.2 oz to one-gallon gas, do not use Alcohol base gas.
Remove the spark plug.
Pour approximate 1/8 oz 2-cycle Oli into the spark plug hole.
Remove the pull cord assembly (4-bolts)
This reviled the crank shaft-Pull cord bracket
I use a large monkey wrench to turn the shaft (CW) Clock-wise.
Complete approximate 20 revolutions.
Reassemble, but don't install the spark plug yet.
Complete approximate 20 more revolutions
by pulling the pull cord.
Use q-tips to swab the top of the piston, as much as possible.
Install the spark-plug and crank, it will smoke for amount 7-10 minutes
