Check your fuel mixture, check the air and gas mixture, you should be able to find how they need to be set for your machine on the internet, or call the manufacturer

Craftsman 18" chain saw 42cc. Starts and runs fine. Will not idle after running for a while. Will not restart when hot. Will start after the saw cools down.


I had a 2 cycle snow thrower that acted similarly. It needed a new diaphragm. When they get old they act up. I could never see a physical difference between the good and bad one but the new one fixed it. It's a flat rubber part that is in the carburetor. Call Sears parts or visit them on-line to get a parts breakdown of the carb.

What are the steps to getting the chain saw started and idling? What are next steps to cut tree limbs and oil the chain? This chain saw was given to me without a manual.


If you are a complete novice you should seek some training before attempting to use the machine, as you do not say what model this is we will go through basic starting procedures, fill the fuel tank with fresh fuel mixed with two stroke oil at 25-1, fill the chain oil tank with a non fling chain oil, switch the ignition switch to on, pull the choke fully out, push in the deco valve if fitted, place the machine on the ground, with the tip of the bar away from any obstructions, put your right foot through the back handle to hold the saw down, place your straightened left arm and hand onto the top handle again to hold the machine, now with your right hand crank the engine until it fires once, at this point push the choke fully back in, crank the engine once again until it fires up, flick the trigger to dissengage the part throttle , the machine should now idle.
Be carefull.

My saw is two weeks old it uses 3 tanks of bar&chain oil to 1 tank of gas is there a adjustment for setting?


Take the bar and chain off and clean both thourghly. Use a small blade screwdriver to scrape built up saw dust,dirt woodchips or whatever from bar track and make sure both are in good shape. The oil port should be located by bar alignment pin.Brush it clean and if you have access to compressed air then blow out to help clear port. Turn your saw upside down and locate screw that has directional arrow to + or - to add or subtract amount of oil flow.
I would start and run saw with bar and chain installed and properly tensioned. Let saw warm up then hold saw about one inch above clean piece of wood and run at full throttle for 30 seconds.There should be a light coating of oil on board. If you have too much oil then turn screw in direction on - until you get it set where you want it. There should be a light coating of oil on chain and bar at all times.
I mostly use stihl saws and run about 1 1/2 tanks of gas per tank of oil and this works great for me. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

I have an old McCullough chain saw 12 or 14 inch chain length. What is the oil to gas ratio I need to use? 50:1? 40:1? What do you recommend? I can't see any serial number or identifying numbers so the...


Run 40:1 using fresh fuel and a modern synthetic saw oil--mix it in it's own can and be sure to shake the can thoroughly each time just before refilling the tank. Don't mix up more than a gallon unless your business is sawing. You may need to deal with a plugged fuel filter if it won't start. The oiler button was intended to supplement the pumped bar oil when cutting thick/difficult wood. Normally, it is not needed. To start, set the choke full on until you hear a pop, then back the choke off about half way before the next pull (don't forget to set the fast idle button near the throttle--squeeze the throttle, push the button and hold while releasing the throttle). As soon as you squeeze the throttle again, that will release the fast idle, so make sure the engine is warmed up and the choke off before hitting the throttle. This engine will drive a 16" bar and chain, so upgrade when the original parts wear out. Hope some of this helps!

unleaded fuel is notorious for going stale,and it can leave a resinous coating in the carb-try running the saw on half choke with new gas and less oil eg 50 to 1 for say ten minutes,this should clear the gunk out-if this does not work,you have two choices-strip and clean the carb,or adjust the H (high) scew on the carb anti-clockwise by a quarter turn a time till it revs out full bore-good idea to remove the chain and wear ear defenders when adjusting-and always use a chainsaw at its max rpm,or you run the risk of "kickback"

Wont run hard start, run for five min or less then wont start


Many chainsaws have the fuel tank mounted very close to the engine cylinder. In the process of filling the tank over and over a lot of mixed gas is spilled and some of it runs down on the cylinder head. Being mixed gas and having oil in it, it leaves an oily residue. This oil will seem to collect a massive amount of sawdust over time. The sawdust coating the cylinder causes it not to cool down really well and the increased heat can cause the fuel in the tank to boil if it's bad enough. If the vent in the fuel cap is plugged and the gas in the tank gets hot it tends to pressurize the gas tank. This can cause the saw to flood out or load up.

Change the gas cap or clean out the vent filter. If you can get to the cylinder clean all excess oily sawdust from the cooling fins.
If you get the saw running your probably should readjust the mixture settings.

You need to set the mixtures for the carburetor. You will find a Low and High adjustment screw. At idle turn the screw in or clockwise until the rps starts to decrease. Then start turning it out till you hit max idle rpms. Turn screw back in a quarter to half turn and it should be idling smoothly. Be careful here and get someone to hold saw if necessary but hold in throttle to full speed and do the same with high adjustment screw. turn it in till rpm starts to drop then back it out until you get to max rpm and it won't go any higher then turn it back in a half a turn.

Starting problems


You didn't mention the type of saw you had if it's even indeed a saw. I have found solutions for issues such as yours. First of all have you heard of vapour lock? Some smaller saws with the gas tanks in the front next to the cutter bar get extremely hot and when it runs out of gas and you refill it (let it cool down first), it may have a little vapour lock and sometimes vapour lock is hard to clear up. Give it full throttle with no choke on when you pull the starter rope. This may help. Also have someone qualified to test the ignition spark. Also, these smaller saws will run hot and the module breaks down. This is not a nice problem because there are so many factors affecting it to have this problem. Good luck with your unit.

Chain saw wont start after running out of gas?


Hi

Fill the gas tank with new fuel.Priming the engine(put some gas in the sparkplug hole for few times and start the engine until it runs constantly):There is small amount of water in the gas.

Chain saw emitted sparks and now does not start.


Hi

When the engine get warm and die(I suppose)check the spark at the sparkplug.You can let the saw run until it ran out of gas and you will not distroy the engine.Change the sparkplug.
