Your chain brake is locked up. It needs to be replaced. There was a recall on these.

Hello rick.... Get an aerosol can of starter fluid at your local autoparts store. Also get an assistant. Remove the air filter and start it up. Have your helper squirt some starter fluid into the air intake to keep it running for a couple minutes until the partial blockage in the carburater clears. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Check there are no kinks in fuel line.
Make sure that the air filter isn't blocked.
Check the throttle cable is operating the throttle plate in the carburettor ok.
Ensure chain isn't too tight.
The carburettor should be a tight fit on the air inlet manifold.
It's possible that some of the jets could be blocked in the carburettor. You can try and clean these with compressed air but ensure you remove any seals gaskets, springs on the diaphragm pump , primer bulb etc as they can be damaged by the pressure.

I my homelite chainsaw was idel screw will not stay were I set it. It keeps making the chainsaw run too high. How can I get the idel screw to stay were I set it?


There should be a coiled spring on the idle screw. Since an idle screw is most often never tightened all the way down, the spring helps to keep it in the desired position by creating tension on the screw.

Bogs down?


Try turning the "H" needle CCW a little. Cleaning the muffler and spark arrestor is a good idea too (if it cannot exhale it cannot inhale).
I do not think you need this but something to save for later.
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com

  • CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
  • Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
  • Clean the spark arrestor and muffler; if the saw cannot exhale it cannot inhale.
  • There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full - may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.

Not running at full throttle


close to the carb you will find two tiny screws. They are labeled H and L. L sets the idle speed. H sets the max RPM. Hold the throttle wide open and turn the H screw. When you find the very top end, back it down some or it will be running too lean. That would make it run hot, and provides less lubrication. Could result in engine failure if you run it too lean.

Have trouble starting homelite textron chian saw carb setting


First is the gas mix right? 2 ids the air filter clean? 3. have you replaced the tank fuel filter to make sure it's getting gas? 4. is the plastic line cracked? 5. adjust both carb screws all the way down gently then reverse the screws counter clockwise 2 and 1/2 turns, this should allow it to start and run, once it has started let it warm up and adjust the idle for it to run smooth without dying. Once its running rev it up to make sure it does not have any dead spots in it then try a test cut, if it bogs down adjust the gas screw to in rich it just a little and try cutting again if it does not bog down you should be set. there are other things that can cause it to run poorly like a bad carb gasket or loose screws on the carburetor. If you need more help post here and I will give you some other things to look at.

Loses power when trying to cut wood


Check the muffler screens first. Then the spark plug. If not the case, then adjust the High setting on your carb. Prolly starving for fuel under engine load. If it is still a problem, Pull the carb and clean it.

Homelite leaf blower bogs down.


I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas blowers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with gas blowers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time. Also make sure your spark plug is clean. If you are not sure, a new plug couldn't hurt.
Hope this helps!!
