Pour a little fuel mix in the plug hole and try for start--if pops several times, you have a fuel delivery problem. Check for a plugged fuel filter, air filter, and muffler. Check the condition of the fuel lines, particularly the line ends. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel when pumped? Hope this helps!

I have a poulon pro 42cc saw that wont start. dont think its getting gas cuz i tried to flood it with the primer but no gas on the spark plug.


The primer will not flood it, all the primer does on these saws is pushes fuel through the carb. If this is a new saw, it needs a carb adjustment, a very common problem on poulan products these days. It's covered by the warranty at any of their service dealers (you can locate one on poulan's website).
How old is the gas you are using? If the mixture is more than 30 days old, make a new mix and try again.
Check for spark. Pull the boot off of the plug. Hold the boot near something metal and pull the starter. If you see a spark, you are good. If you don't, you may have a problem with the coil.

I have a poulan pp3816 pro 38cc that leaks gas out the muffler


Its either well flooded, or the carb needle is leaking, remove the spark plug, with the ignition switch off crank the engine to evacuate any fuel left in the cylinder, leave the machine for a couple of hours, re fit the plug and try to start useing no choke, if it still does not start, remove the spark plug again, rest it on top of the cylinder ( away from the spark plug hole ) crank the engine and check for a spark, if it has a good spark and the plug is soaked with fuel it could be a carb needle leaking, remove the carb, remove the metering cover held with four screws, replace the rubber tipped needle.

Hi, from what you have written I believe you have a faulty cdi unit. Carbys don't generally run perfectly intermittently. To test the cdi theory, close the sparkplug gap to approximately half normal gap. If the saw runs fine you have a faulty cdi, shorting ht lead or stop wire. Regards Phil.

I have a poulan pro pp4620avhd chainsaw. I can get it to start and stay running as long as I have the choke on. I can even run it at high speed using the choke control. When I pull the trigger to feed it...


Check the fuel filter and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for condition. Check the carburetor fasteners for tightness. If the saw has a lot of hours, remove the lower section of the carburetor and check the condition of the diaphragm--it should not be hard/cracked. If everything seems to check out ok, Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then CCW each 1-1/2 turns. The engine should start and run--allow the engine to warm up. Pull the throttle full on and adjust H needle CW til the engine speeds up, but still 4-strokes. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Let idle and adjust L CW so that the engine runs fairly well, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust the idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

MY chainsaw will start but boggs down when I squeeze the trigger then after a couple of times trying it wont even start it has a new spark plug what else could it be?


Check the fuel filter for plugging as well as the air cleaner and muffler. Make sure the choke control actually opens the butterfly plate in the carburetor when the choke is pushed off. Check the quality of the spark at the plug by laying the removed plug on engine metal (wire on plug) and pull through. The spark should be blue and snappy. Plug gap is 0.020". The insulator should be medium to light tan when the engine runs correctly. If still having problems, check the lower chamber diaphragm in the carburetor for being hard or cracked as it directly controls fuel flow through the carburetor. Hope this helps!

Wont start


When you replaced the spark plug, did the plug show a snappy, blue spark when the engine was pulled through smartly? If it did, check for a plugged fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler. Check the fuel lines for condition. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Does the primer pull fuel into it? Is the fuel mix fresh? If still nothing, try spraying some starting fluid into the cylinder through the plug hole and pull through. If pops several times, the carburetor may need to be disassembled, cleaned and adjusted. Hope this helps!

262 XP engine cut out on tickover, now will not start


Try checking for spark when she won't start. I'll wager your ignition module quits when it gets good and warm. HTH

Chainsaw pull cord won't pull to start


Simply check to see if motor is locked is to remove spark plug and try to pull start. If motor turns, then he may have gotten gas in cylinder and created hydraulic lock. If moto does not turn, it is just a few screws more to take side cover off and see if rope caught in pully. In fact, you may want to take side cover off first, and make sure rope pulls out of housing, and self winds, like it should. At hat point, he can simple turn flywheel by hand to see if motor is locked up.

If the motor is locked up, you can put small amount of motor oil, (half a tea spoon) into spark plug hole, let it sit half an hour or so, and then try to work the flywheel back and forth to break it free. This condition may have been caused by running straight gas, not mixed. And, even if motor frees up, it may still need to go in for repair.

We have a couple of Poulin Pros at this saw mill where I work, and have had the piston lock up more than once, from guys dumping in straight gas. Sometimes we'ra able to free up piston, and make saw run again. And sometimes we end up tearing it down and repairing piston ring. Good Luck
