Try turning in the idle adjustment screw a little at a time until you get the saw to idle but not move your chain.your manual or an online manual for your saw should show where the idle screw is located.

Re: mcculloch chainsaw 2416
Most chainsaws I have used and fixed have three adjustments. One adjusts the speed the saw will idle at, communally called an idle screw. You adjust this screw for the speed at idle. Another screw will adjust the air. One more will adjust the gas. All saws may not have these last two screws, and may only have one for the air/fuel mixture.
I would suggest that you use the users manual then find the correct settings and where the screws are located. The engine may not idle smoothly if the two adjustments which affect the air/gas mixture are not correctly set. This will depend on the way the gas/oil has been mixed as well.
If the engine will not idle correctly and the engine continues to run roughly or will not idle at all, then you may have to have the carburetor repaired. If the float is faulty, such as a hole, dirty, or the float shutoff pin is sticking, then repair needs to be done. You can usually find repair kits for these at repair shops which carry parts for these saws and other small engines as well. Another thing which is common is water in the gas causing rough idle or the engine not running at all. Water can get in gas from cans sitting or the saw in an area which can have rain or temperature changes which can cause water from humidity build-up in the tank.

Ask for a PDF Manual, you will need the model number of the Steam Vacuum

THE MOST LOGICAL CAUSE IS THE CARBURATOR NEEDS REBUILT. IT IS DIRTY AND RESTRICTING FUEL AND AIR FLOW. HAVE A GOOD DAY! it may even be as simple as a new spark plug. try turning the fuel adjustment on carb, all the way in and back it out 1-1/2 turns. the idle screw should be screwed all the way in and backed out 1 turn. if it has a screw on bottom of float bowl or carb, it is the high speed jet, try adjusting it, in or out.
Storing a chain saw for longer than 30 days requires storage maintenance. Unless the storage instructions are followed, fuel remaining in the carburetor will evaporate, leaving gum-like deposits. This could lead to difficult starting and result in costly repairs. Never store a chain saw for longer than 30 days without performing the following procedures:
Remove the fuel tank cap slowly to release any pressure in tank. Carefullydrain the fuel tank.Start the engine and let it run until the unit stops to remove fuel from carburetor. Allow the engine to cool (approximately 5 minutes). Using a spark plug wrench, remove the spark plug.
Pour 1 teaspoon of clean 2-cycle oil into the combustion chamber. Pull starter rope slowly several times to coat internal components. Replace spark plug.
Store the unit in a dry place and away from possible sources of ignition such as a furnace, gas hot water heater, gas dryer,etc.When removing the unit from storage, be sure to perform the following procedures:Remove spark plug. Pull starter rope briskly to clear excess oil from combustion chamber.Clean and gap spark plug or install a new spark plug with proper gap.Prepare unit for operation.Fill fuel tank with proper fuel/oil mixture. This will help.Thanks,please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
The 3 adjustment screws are Idle, high and low.
First figure out which screws are which adjustment. Tighten the screws then turn them 1 full turn.
Then start the saw and get it warmed up. Work on the high adjustment. This does take a little while. after you get the saw running at high speed work on the low speed.
You will need a parts breakdown and exploded views to start with as well as a manual , All you have to do is call 1-800-521-8559 and select U.S. then select the parts department, have your model number ready and ask them for a PDF of the owners user manual to be emailed to you, they will normally be sent in 1 hour for free.
After that is done then you can see the fuel filter and line inside the tank you will need to replace, take your printed views and manual to the nearby lawn mower shop and they will help you get the parts you need even if the original ones are not available. blow out the carb with chemtool and install the parts, use NEW GAS, NEW OIL and from that day forward never leave fuel in a unit for more than 3 months. Good Luck...
