Its either sucking air in throgh a loose connection in the fuel line or the carb is stopped up. Take it apart very easy so you don't rip any gaskets, and clean evertthing with a can of compressed air blow all the tubes out real good. You may have to get a carb kit it that does not work.

But that sounds like what it is, running out of gas when you let more air to it.

Bought a McCulloch M3414 started okay yesterday wont start today maybe I flooded it, pulled cord so many times


1. set on/off switch to on, 2.prime it first, push the bubble about 6x 3. pull the choke all the way out, 4.pull trigger and string simultaneously 5. push in choke halfway try again, pull choke back out and etc. should start after repeating steps 4 and 5 3x or 4x when it does start, pump the gas at half choke then let it idle untill it stops push in choke all the way and it should start. don't forget to check the safety bar in front of the handle usually works with most gas operated tools

Is there a reset button for this chain saw? I was using it the other day and it was fine but today I can't get it on. Thanks!! ~Dawn


No reset button. Remove the spark plug and test for spark--it should be blue and snappy with a fresh plug gapped at 0.020". If nothing, the entire engine case must be removed to troubleshoot an ignition problem. If the spark plug sparks, but it looks wet, try pulling the throttle wide open (with the spark plug out), no choke, and pull the engine through smartly several times to expel the excess fuel. Check the air cleaner to make sure it is not plugged. Hope some of this helps!

Chain saw won't start


Before you try to start it, push the primer bubble on the side 3 or 4 times, then pull the choke all the way out. On poulans they can be tricky. When pulling the choke button out, make sure it does not go back in. After you pull the crank rope and you hear it "hit" push the choke back in and pull the crank rope again. It should start after that. If it still won't start, check for a faulty spark plug.

You do know a chain saw is a 2-cycle engine and requires a mixture of Fuel and 2-cycle oil? This saw is probably 40:1 (1 gallon of premium fuel to 3.2 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil).
My procedure is better than the one in your manual anyway. LOL
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)

Mcculloch 3516 chain saw, does not always start.


It must have spark, fuel and compression to run. Your task is to figure out which is missing.
Sometimes electrical components quit operating once beyond a certain temperature. Does it always start cold and become tempermental when warm?
IMO most hard start problems on a chainsaw with a good fuel delivery system are flooded.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
The 3516 is a MTD McCulloch (Chinese). These saws are in a class by themselves. Good Luck

No floats in chainsaw carbs. Severly flooded most common start problem with chainsaws. Read and follow the start procedure in your manual. Don't use choke on flooded engine (may set fast idle, set then turn off)!

I just picked up a Titan 57 from a yard sale. but I DON'T KNOW HOW TO START THE CHAINSAW. i HAVE USED CHAINSAWS BEFORE BUT NOT A MCCULLOCH. CAN YOU HELP? THANKS.


Is the fuel full of something? Dispose of it and try this.
Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 3 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)

If no joy repost with what you have done and we'll try something different. Once flooded chainsaws are very hard to start.
