Hi

Check the spark plug first (when the engine has warmed and died).If you have a good spark,check the fuel pump from the carb(it shuld not to be tighten).If everything is ok check the seals(they are sealing the engine).Good luck!

Firstly consult your manual regarding carburettor settings. There should be a high and low speed adjustment on the saw, often called or labeled as "L" and "H".

These are often located on the main motor body, closer to the handle on one side and require a screwdriver or similar to adjust. They might be buried and you have to look down the adjustment holes in the outer body to see the screws.

Basically you need to adjust the "L" or low idle screw.

Firstly, warm up the chainsaw and allow it to get up to temperature... The blade, as you say will probably be spinning still with hands off the throttle... Grab your screwdriver and adjust the "L" or low idle screw turning it counter-clockwise (at least on most saws) very slowly until the chain just stops turning on the bar. If you go to far you may stall the motor. You just want the chain to have just stopped moving on the bar, and that is your "L" setting position...

Has to be done with a warm engine though.

Thanks.

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.

Does the spark plug get wet with fuel when pulled through? If dry, try spraying a little starting fluid in the plug hole and reinstall the plug. If it pops at least once, you have fuel delivery problems--look for hardened/ cracked fuel lines. Clean the muffler arrestor screen. When the muffler is off, check the condition of the piston skirt and cylinder wall for deep scoring or obvious wear. Make sure the primer button (if equipped) is filling with fuel when pumped a few times. If it doesn't, make sure the bulb is not hard or cracked and check the lines going to and from it. Check the carburetor bolts and nuts for tightness. The fuel filter in the tank could be plugged, fish it out and check. If you have checked all these items, it may be time to clean and rekit the carburetor. Hope this helps!

Saw quits after cutting wood for about 5 minutes


Are you sure you have the correct amount of 2-stroke oil mixed in the gas? It sounds like it is overheating. Also check the engine to make sure the fins aren't clogged with wood shavings.

It sounds very much loke the ignition is playing up when hot, just as a little test when it starts to die slacken off the fuel filler cap does it pick up/re start? if yes it is a fuel tank breather issue, replace the breather.

I have a Poulan Pro 295 20 " chain saw that wont start.No spark from plug.Think the magneto is bad. Model no.952-051310 . Need opinion and part no. Thanks.


Do a basic test first, remove the top cover, pull the earth cut out wire from the terminal on the ignition unit ( this will iliminate any problems with the switch, or wires ) now try for a spark, remember that they work off speed of rotation so give it a good pull, make sure you use a good clean plug, well earthed against the cylinder. If there is still no spark, you will need to replace the unit, part no. 530039143

I suspect the carburetor is full of remnants of the same fluids you found in the tank. If it was my saw I'd take it to the local Stihl dealer for an estimate to repair. I'd expect to pay $40 - 80 for a tune up and repair depending on how many fuel hoses must be replaced. HTH
