Either you have old ,varnished gas in your can an saw,or you muffler is plugged by the spark arrestor.These are the most common problem but you may need a carburetor kit,i would try it with the muffler removed to point you in the correct direction to start replacing/repairing parts.

Why is chainsaw running with high revs


Anon it sounds like the choke has stuck out or the accelerator trigger is jammed.

The throttle trigger will not work on my 235e husqvarna


I'm guessing from the statement that it "will not work to increase speed" that you have been able to successfully start the chainsaw.
I have to look at this with the assumption that you haven't run a chain saw before, so bear with me if some of this is excessively simple.
If the throttle trigger does not move, something is jammed. The handle for the choke should automatically move to the retracted position when you pull on the throttle. If it doesn't, see if the trigger will move after you push the choke handle back in.
If the trigger moves in when you squeeze it but you don't hear any change in the engine sound then it's probable that the throttle wire has disconnected at the carburetor or at the handle.
Is the chain brake off? You need to pull it firmly back toward the upper handle for it to be disengaged. If the handle is forward it will lock the outer portion of the clutch. If you try to accelerate with it locked the engine will bog and not allow the chain to move.
Any of these conditions other than the chain brake will probably require some disassembly. Make sure you're confident that you've correctly reassembled everything if you're going to do it yourself.

Choke trigger on the handle will not lock to start the chainsaw


more information please..

To lock the choke on:-
1. depress dead mans trigget on top of back handle
2. squeeze throttle trigger fully in.
3. slide on switch fully down to 'full choke' position. 'it should stay there'.
4. Pull saw over until it fires once.
5. click 'on' switch up one position to 'half choke'
6. pull saw over again, saw should start running and be revving high.
7. 'blip' throttle, saw should stop revving and run on tick over.

2nd use of chainsaw pp3516avx, it won't start, choke lever will not stay extended. I followed the instructions to start and nothing works


The choke system is connected to the half throttle position, if you lift the throttle trigger the choke pull will automatically return, whilst trying to start do not lift the throttle trigger, the starting procedure is, pump the primer bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, pull the choke pull fully out, this will switch the saw on and engage the half throttle, crank the engine until it fires once, do not continue to pull,it will actually not run on full choke, if you do continue to crank with the choke fully out, you will very quickly flood the engine, now push the choke fully in, now crank the engine until it fires up, lift the throttle trigger once, this will dissengage the half throttle, and it should now come down to idle.

My chainsaw will start but it boggs down and shuts down when I pull the trigger to rev the engine..


Could be not getting enough fuel. Check pick up tubing and filter in tank. Or could b the choke is not opening. You didn't mention what brand but some saws have a spring that returns the choke to the open position. If its not in place, then even with the choke lever in the open position the choke is not. Remove cover and observe the position to the choke plate. If the saw has been sitting, then a good carb cleaning is in order.

Engine stalls after acceleration - Start fine, idles fine, but won't run at full speed. Engine dies when throttle is engaged more than half-way. Fuel filter is ok, air filter has been cleaned.


Sounds like its not "un-choking" it self, that its running like its still choked like you wold at initial start up.

Disassemble it and see if u can pysically see the activation and deactivation of the choke when u apply them.

While u are at it, also make sure:

Gas is fresh?

MIx is right?

Plug is good?

Chain brake mechanism is released.?

Good luck.

Do not know how to start my chain saw


First the chain should be tightened properly before starting. When you pick up on the chain midway of the bar it should pull away from the bar about 1/4". The proper mix of oil & gas in the fuel tank & Oil for the chain in the oiler tankk is needed, If so, locate the on/off switch & turn it to "on". Pull the choke lever out. Depress the throttle trigger & engage the latch for the trigger. With the saw held firmly in place, pull the starter rope until the engine hits. Then move the choke to half & pull till it cranks. move the choke lever to the run position.

Difficulty starting Poulan 2250 . . .


hey pete
This is easy, prime bulb 5 to 7 times with choke lever full out. Pull string, once engine starts turn off choke and pull string again. ( throughout process do not pull trigger )Engine should start, let it idle 30 seconds, then finally pull trigger to rev up engine.
