The choke system is connected to the half throttle position, if you lift the throttle trigger the choke pull will automatically return, whilst trying to start do not lift the throttle trigger, the starting procedure is, pump the primer bulb as many times as it takes to 3/4 fill the bulb, pull the choke pull fully out, this will switch the saw on and engage the half throttle, crank the engine until it fires once, do not continue to pull,it will actually not run on full choke, if you do continue to crank with the choke fully out, you will very quickly flood the engine, now push the choke fully in, now crank the engine until it fires up, lift the throttle trigger once, this will dissengage the half throttle, and it should now come down to idle.

Poulan saw wont run


Clean the muffler spark arrestor screen and check the cylinder port for carbon build-up at the upper edge. Try presetting both carburetor H and L adjustments (from lightly CW stops) 1-1/2 turns CCW each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Pull the throttle wide open and adjust H CW until the engine speed increases, but still 4-stroking. Correct setting is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Allow to idle and adjust L for smoother running, yet allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed to keep the engine running, but doesn't try to move the chain. You may have to look closer at your carburetor if the above doesn't help. Go to:

for an excellent article (but poor pix) on Walbro carburetors, but related to most all 2-stroke carburetors. Hope this helps!

Choke/start knobs wont pull out to ingage thus not start.saw is only 6monthsold used twice


Should still be warranted. Why void the warranty? Take it back or find an authorized service center.

Difficulty starting Poulan 2250 . . .


hey pete
This is easy, prime bulb 5 to 7 times with choke lever full out. Pull string, once engine starts turn off choke and pull string again. ( throughout process do not pull trigger )Engine should start, let it idle 30 seconds, then finally pull trigger to rev up engine.

New poulan chainsaw won't start


how manny times do you prime it before you try to start it? you could be flooding it, or not priming it enough also the choke could not be working. if you take off the cover that covers the carb you can see if the choke is working and if the primer is working also check the air filter. you can also hit it with a quick spray if ether before you try to star it and it should fire right up.

Will not start - brand new


i bought a new dirtbike as a kid n same thing.it turned out ,it needed to be a synthedic oil in the mix.try seeing for spark to begin with by putting sparkplug in the wire n touching diode to the engine block while pulling the cord.thats a good starting point to diagnosing your problem.maybe try warming it up in the house then try starting it with no choke needed.the saws i ve used needed you to give it throttle after you pull,n no throttle with choke.
