There are several things that can cause this problem First if you run it until it quits will it start working again after it cools down. If this is the case the it is shutting off thermal switch on motor. This could be from saw needing cleaned or lubed, make sure chain is not to tight, don't force saw to hard,let it cut at its own pace. Make sure chain is sharp. Anything that causes excessive friction will increase motor temperature. It is possible that thermal switch is about worn out. Hope this helps. Thanks

What would cause a poulan chain saw to quit running after about ten minutes of cutting


The only temperature sensitive part I can think of is the condenser. In most saws it is under the flywheel with the points. Some newer saws have an electronic ignition module. If that is the case the module must be replaced.

I have a Malita dual sliding compound miter saw LS1016LX. Trigger will not start saw after 5-10 cuts. When saw sits for 30 minutes, it runs again.


I'd contact a Makita dealer. I've had this saw for years without a single misfire on the trigger. Could be heat related, but that's a stretch. Here's their contact information:

My saw starts fine, runs great for about 5-10 minutes, then dies. If I let it sit for another 5-10 minutes it fires first pull and runs strong- for about 5-10 min then dies. Any ideas? Thanks.


Hello. Check the filter in the bottom of the fuel tank, I am betting that it is partially gummed up and restricting the flow of fuel. Regards, Joe

Stihl saw 026 runs 5-10 min won't stay running and backfires


5 to 10 minutes is a long time and the 026 is a fairly old saw. If it is running 5 to 10 minutes and not 5 to 10 seconds, you probably just have a worn engine. Clean the saw inside very thououghlr and try Amoco white gas. You should be able to reduct the heating and get more run time. A carb rebuild might also help some but in hot weather it is not unusual for chain saws to vapor lock.
