If the saw is overheating, blow out the engine case with compressed air to rid it of sawdust/dirt accumulation. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler, for plugging. Does the saw 4-stroke at speed when running free, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting? If not, adjust the H jet needle CCW somewhat until the previous occurs. If the engine seems to be about normal temperature when it quits, try a fresh spark plug gapped at 0.020". If still no help, then suspect the ignition module is failing from heat. Remove the left side case to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Change out the module by removing the mounting screws, the plug-in wiring, and fish out the plug wire from the case. Install the new module using a thin business card for a gap gauge--turn the flywheel magnets under the module poles, insert the gauge, and allow the module poles to contact the magnets, then tighten the screws. Turn the flywheel somewhat to remove the card, then turn the flywheel one full turn while checking the pole gap to make sure that it doesn't close up further. Hope this helps!

My Husqvarna 351 starts then stops after 1-2 seconds


Once the saw cools down will it restart and run fine? There are a couple other solutions that are not directly due to carburation. The first two solutions above are definitely your first options.

1. Ignition Coil: Highly unlikely, but possible. I seen some where they get hot and run fine while cutting, you shut it down for a few minutes for whatever reason and it won't restart or starts and stalls.

2. Crankcase Air Leak: We started to see more and more of these issues. There are a couple of quick ways to test this if you do not want to pay a shop to do an actual test. You want to do a cold test and a hot test. With a half tank of fuel, start the saw up for the first time of the day. While the saw is idling, turn the saw sideways from right to left, do this slowly, listen to the saw idle, if the speed changes by increasing or almost stalling, you have a crankcase air leak. Most bad air leaks won't be noticeable until the saw has gotten hot and the aluminum crankcase starts to expand a bit. Do the same thing once the saw has gotten hot. If this happens when it's hot, chances are that it won't start or starts and stalls until it cools down and everything retracts.
Test Results:
Sporadic idling when cold: Most likely just the oil seals, fairly inexpensive repair.
Sporadic idling when hot: Most likely crankcase itself is leaking, requires a complete crankcase gasket replacement. Can be fairly expensive to repair.

Car star when is cold but if I stop the engine after is hot it will not start until cool of again


If you mean that it starts fine when cold, but if you stop & turn off the engine (to to pop into a shop for example) then try to restart and get absolutely no turning over, then you need to replace your battery. It has a short or crack which is expanding when hot creating your problem.

Poulan 16" saw, start fine, runs fine until it


A couple of ideas, it could be a fuel tank breather issue, when it starts to die just try loosening the fuel cap, if the saw picks up again you will need to change the breather, the only other thing i can think of is a bad ignition that is breaking down when hot, the only aswer to this is to replace the ignition unit

Homelite 10540 chainsaw 35CC chainsaw won't start when hot


Go to: http://www.drystacked com for a 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting. Check particularly, the position of the gasket in the lower chamber. Check the spark plug for blue, snappy spark when the engine is hot. If ok, place a small amount of fuel mix in the cylinder and try for start. If it pops several times, look to the fuel system. Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel after several pumps? Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. When the engine is hot, try not using the choke, but set the fast idle. Hope some of this helps!

M842 chainsaw wont start when hot


I suspect your warm start procedure is the fault, the manual is not correct IMO. Any choke on a warm engine causes flooding, try this, if no better post back or return it for warranty replacement.

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).
