Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a Homelite Little Red XL chain saw (16"). After I have been cutting for awhile (5-10 minutes), the chain starts slipping and I have to back it out of the cut and apply less pressure to continue to cut. Is there anything I can do to adjust it so it won't slip?

16 inch poulan chainsaw got hot and started to smoke and now the recoil no longer works. I took the cover off and there is two springs that seem sprung. should I toss it and forget it or this something I...


how old is the polan 16 inch is it a solid body saw or does it have anti vibration handles, so your hands dont go numb after cutting for 15 minutes.reason i asked is: you can buy a brand new reconditioned homelite with anti vibration handle for 85.00&shiping.
at the very least,your polan needs the recoil starter fixed
and that does not address why the poulan got hot & started to smoke.
For the problems you described , at least $100.00 labor plus parts to fix at a chain saw shop
It might barely be worth it if you were a do it yourselfer and wanted to try to fix it.
if you dont want to be a diy chain saw mechanic, sell your polan for parts for $20.00 on ebay and buy a new homelite
16 inch 38 cc with anti vibration handle ,so you can cut for 6 hours straight, if need be. You get a reconditioned saw that is ready to go and a 90 day warranty. or buy the saw brand new for $110.00 and free shipping@ amazon.com

Homelite chain saw XL925 cord pull too hard but if you remove the spark plug then it pulls OK.


I have a Homelite XL and was having problems with rope pulling from difficult to unable to pull rope while trying to start saw. I removed the muffler, squirted some WD40 through the exhaust port ABOVE and BELOW the piston compression ring. Then pulled the rope about 20 times without spark plug to fully lubricate the piston and cylinder. Left it till the next day, pulled it through about 20 more times, put the spark plug back in,and it works well now. Guess it was just gummed-up a little and the lubrication freed it.

What is the oil to gas ratio for a homelite zr 10926 16 chain saw


This is a current Homelite product although not your saw. This clearly recommends 50:1 as do I. I find no OM for your saw, a "Ranger 33cc 16" Chain Saw UT-10926"
http://www.homelite.com/product_manual/file_url/66/UT10540_60_80_QSG.pdf
Dolmar, Echo, Efco, Homelite, Husqvarna, Jonsered, Makita, Oleo-Mac, Red Max, Ryobi, Shindaiwa, Solo, Spear & Jackson, Stihl & Tanaka; all recommend 50:1 and have for a number of years.
1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
4 liters of premium fuel to 80 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.

I suggest you contact Homelite and request an OM for your saw.
Homelite/Ryobi.com (Contact Us)
https://register.homelite.com/contact_us/new
Please ask they prove a link to a site where ALL homelite product OMs may be accessed.

I have an earlier model Homelite XL Textron, UT#: 10618A, Serial#: 7D2080207. I need to replace the chain and possibly the bar. Can you tell me where I can get a chain and/or what is the part # for the...


Hello cf:
I need your help to help you.
Please count the drive links on an existing chain and post back (below) with the number. I have to close this, to post a photo. We can continue if you just reply.

I will provide the correct bar size and a link where you can make a choice, because your saw is so old I cannot match it to anything currently on the Homelite site and I am not willing to recommend a chain without seeing your level of expertise.

You can also take an existing chain to a local saw shop where one can be fabricated in a few minutes.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

My Homelite Ranger 16 inch chainsaw starts great runs smooth but upon cutting in to any sized branch or tree it now bogs down and stops cutting. Whats strange is that doesn't die it keeps running but will...


My 16" Ranger had the same problem. Here's how to fix it. Take off the top cover and the red side cover to acess the carburator. Take the top off the carb; there is a single screw that holds it on. Inside you will see a 10mm round indention. This is a final screen fuel filter. Mine had a layer of light brown dirt over the screen. Take a small screwdriver and carefully scrape the dirt off. You don't need to clean the carb any further or adjust the H and L settings or anything. Put it back together and it should run with no bogging. down.

Have an older XL 16" Homelite chainsaw UT10695, Ser. No. HO0681042. Can't find manual for gas/oil mix ratio, thought it was 32:1??

XL-12 and 15 agree with your mixture, no 16 listed.
32:1 = 1 gallon of premium fuel to 4 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.

Runs well untill it gets hot. then cuts out


If it's the little xl model, it's probably the ignition coil breaking down when it gets hot and therefore it can't and won't be able to handle a load. Also, scarred pistons skirt or rings could also be some of the problem here. Make sure your mix for a Homelite saw is 40:1 not 50:1 like most saws are. Homelite seems to run better with a heavier oil mixture. Good luck.
