Chain saw starts then quits wont run


Sounds like the fuel pump diaphram in the carb. It is a small film membrane that will stretch over time. A rebuild kit should solve this problem.

Can you hear anything rattling round inside when you shake it as there may be a small piece of material jamming the crank shaft As with not idling is the air filter clean and the fuel fresh as petrol is only good for around three months

If not already done replace the fuel filter in the tank, it is obviously fuel starvation, if no better increase the the fuel mixture on the H and L screws ( turn anti clockwise 1/4 turn on each to start with)

Poulan 2375. Just replaced all fuel lines. Only stays running at greater than 1/2 choke. Have never had to adjust carb before. Maybe an air leak around carb? Easy way to check for that? Any suggestions or...


First I would start with the fuel filter, was that replaced too?, then I would make sure you have fresh gas and a new spark plug, Probably what I would suggest next is to pull your carb off and take apart and clean it with carb cleaner, most likely you will find dirt and possible small fragments from rotten fuel lines,partially plugging the inlet screen in carb, also your diaphram could be stretched, wouldn't hurt to pur carb kit in it while it is apart, I have just cleaned them before and been o.k. this should help you out

Poulan 42 cc chain saw that is hard to pull the rope like the compression release is not working. How do I repair it?? Built in 2007


I do not think they had a compression realese on a saw that small, it is more likly to be an issue with the starter, remove the screws and take away the starter does it pull easily off the saw? if it is ok try turning the engine with the flywheel, is the flywheel rubbing the ignition unit, the gap here should be 0.5mm.

Poulan pro 42cc,18",PPB4218 is very hard to start and runs for a short time and then will not start when hot. It worked well first year, badly this season.Changed spark plug and cleaned fuel filter and...


check basics 1st fuel , air, compression, spark , timming
then secondary compression ie crankcase air tightness
2 strokes need air tight c/case in order to draw in & pump mixture

check your tank breather is working,

has this saw been sitting a while ? if so might pay to rekit carb

check your carby diaphrams are pliable and inlet screen is not blocked and metering needle is set flush with chamber floor,
are hi / lo needles set base settings are 1-1/4 turns out from lightly seated , final hi setting is done while @ full rev and needs to 4 stroke slightly

check ignition spark under load ie while under compression load- could be a weak spark

check timming key

check for a air leak at cylinder / manifold block gasket or carb joint

check barrell bolts are tight everything been = engine should run

cheers

Chain saw won't start


Check the fuel filter for plugging (which is common when fuel is left in the machine over winter storage). You should run the carburetor dry after emptying the fuel tank for storage.Hope this helps!

Homelite chainsaw starts and runs for about 30 seconds before stalling out. Any help?


Check your fuel lines for cracks it may be sucking air ,also make sure the fuel filter is still attached since they like to come off in the tank and then dirt gets in the carb,if thats the case replace your fuel lines and filter ,replace with fresh fuel (correct mixture ratio is a must). You may want to take the carb apart and clean out the small internal screen it has and look for any cracks in the diaphrams.You should also check your exhaust to make sure its clear of carbon build up.I repair saws , trimmers and many other 2 strokes and find most of the time its bad fuel lines and carbon in the exhaust port,but also alot of times I find damaged pistons and scored cylinders with very little compression.Good luck to you.

POULAN PRO 295: RUNNING VERY STRONG, FOR OVER AN


Remove the air filter, squirt a little fuel into the carb. Start and let run if it will for a few minutes. Could be you had some water in old fuel. and it is still in the intake of saw. If it still will not run after squirting some fuel into carb. You have a firing problem.

Poulan 18' model 2000 chain saw, quit running , will not start.


If you have a compression gauge, check the compression. Anything under 90psi is too low.

Check your flywheel key. If it is broken the flywheel will move and not fire at the correct time.

Note: if it does not sputter with carb cleaner then it's not your carb.

Next:
Remove your exhaust manifold. Look into the cylinder with a flash light. You are looking for scratches. Anything larger then a light fingernail is definite proof you need a new cylinder/piston assy.

If it passes that test do the following:

Pour mixed fuel straight into your cylinder until 1/4 full. Slowly pull your saw over while looking into the cylinder. If you see bubbles after the ring/rings go by then you need a new cylinder/piston assy. On rare occasions if no scratches are present on the cylinder wall or piston, you may be able to change just the rings.
