Question about Craftsman Garden
You need to strip and clean out the carb. The main fuel passages and jets are blocked or stuck. A new gasket set would probably also not be out of place.

Check the fuel line for cracks. That is usually the problem. Plastic fuel lines crack with age and need to be replaced. I have had a couple of Craftsman Saws (made by Polan do the same thing).
Fuel line can usually be purchased at a hardware store or saw shop. Takie a piece of the old line with you to get the right size.

It is running in a lean condition. Continued operation like that can cause piston and cylinder failure.
I'd take it in for repair estimate ($10) at the local chainsaw seller/mechanic. Explain the problem you are having, Probably a leaking fuel line. I'd expect a repair and tune up about $40-60. Your saw will perform better and your arm will thank you. If tuned ask what fuel/oil ratio they used (should be 50:1) and affix a label to your fuel tank. HTH
