Question about Poulan 14" Chainsaw

1 Answer

My 14-inch Poulan chain saw (2055) was working great, then it began to loose power and stumble, then stop. It restarted a couple of times, but had no power. I've checked the gas, oil, and free movement of the chain. All OK. Now it won't begin to start even after following all of the instructions in the owner's manual. What should I do now?

Two items you can check:

1. There is most likely a spark arrestor screen on the muffler. These can become clogged with carbon and choke out your saw. If it is removeable, usually by taking out a single screw on the screen, you can clean it with a wire brush.

2. Check the compression of your cylinder. It should have a minimum of 100#.

It is possible they gave you the wrong chain for the saw. I would take check the manufacture to see which chain you need then check the numbers on your chain. Other thing it could be is the washer on the clutch may be missing. Either way, it is a new saw, I would take it back.

Poulan 2150 chain saw starts after priming and dies after a few seconds


Take the exhaust off so you can see the side of the piston, if it is scored or damaged it means it has probably been run without oil added to the petrol.
That can cause the problems you are having, if it is throw it away, its not worth repairing

Hi there, a couple of features come to mind that may be the cause of your problem.

Firstly, make sure that the saw is unplugged from the power supply.
  • The chain brake is active and wont allow sprocket movement and hence the chain. If necessary, pull the front guard (in front of the front handle) back until it clicks.
  • Electric saws generally have an additional motor-stop feature built into the trigger mechanism which is deactivated when the trigger is squeezed. So, in order to move the chain along the bar the trigger needs to be squeezed releasing the motor-stop. A tip - wear gloves when handling chains and move the chain towards the bar tip ie in the direction of the cutters - if the chain suddenly stops you wont remove several layers of skin in the process ! better still use a screwdriver against the back of one of the cutters and move it forwards - there should be some resistance and there should be no slack chain on the underside of the bar. Hope this helps.

I am reasonably sure the upper most carburetor connection (it bleeds any air in the carburetor, air rises) goes to the primer. Leave the hoses long enough to swap them and try it. They can be shortened once you verify the correct routing. Good Luck. HTH
