I HAVE A POULAN 2150 CHAINSAW WITH A WALBRO WT 324 CARBURETOR. IT WILL CRANK WITH CHOKE ON BUT CUTS OFF SOON AS I PUSH CHOKE TO OFF POSITION


test the steps and fix it. God bless you

Spark Arrester

Inside the muffler of most chainsaws is a screen-like device called a spark arrestor. If the chainsaw stops after a few seconds or won't start at all, the spark arrestor might be clogged. The spark arrestor prevents small embers from being emitted by the engine to prevent fires. Over time the spark arrestor will become clogged with soot. Remove the spark arrestor and clean with a wire brush or replace.

Carburetor

If the chainsaw engine stops after a few seconds, the carburetor might be clogged or have bad fuel in the float bowl. If old fuel was left in the chainsaw for a long time some of the volatile ingredients may have evaporated, leaving a thicker, stickier product that is more like varnish or shellac. This sticky fuel can clog up the small jets and ports in the carburetor and it can be difficult to burn allowing the engine to only run for a few seconds. The only solution is to drain the old fuel from the float bowl and thoroughly clean the carburetor with carburetor cleaner. If that isn't effective, replace the entire carburetor.

Gas Cap

The gas cap on YOUR chainsaw is designed to let a very small amount of air into the tank. This is necessary because as fuel is consumed a vacuum is created in the fuel tank. The gas cap has a tiny vent to let air into the tank and equalize the pressure. If the gas cap vent gets clogged air can't enter the tank and eventually the vacuum pressure in the tank exceeds the vacuum pressure of the engine, and the engine stalls. The vent often cannot be cleaned because it is made of a semi porous ceramic material. If the gas cap vent is clogged, replace the cap.

Spark Plug

If the chainsaw starts and stops after a few seconds The spark plug may be defective. Although this is not very common it is easy to test. Try removing the spark plug and installing a new one.

Fuel Filter

If the chainsaw stops after a few seconds, the fuel filter might be clogged. If old fuel was left in the chainsaw for a long time some of the volatile ingredients may have evaporated, leaving a thicker, stickier product that is more like varnish or shellac. This sticky fuel can clog up the fuel filter and it can be difficult to burn allowing the engine to only run for a few seconds.

It wont start


Actually would like a little more information. Like how long have you had the saw. When was the last time it did crank. When did you last change the spark plug. Have you been using the correct gas to oil ratio ( see owners manual). If it has been a good while since you changed the spark plug I would start there. Check the air filter, gas filter to be sure these are not clogged.

Craftmans and mcculloch chainsaws have been sitting 2 years and will not start


Try cleaning or replacing the spark plug, try using a can of small engine starting fluid shot into the carburetor to get it going. If this doesn't work, the gas has probably evaporated and left the carburetor with a coating similar to shellac inside. I would suggest having a small engine repair shop clean/replace the carburetor. If you are able to do this yourself, you should be able to find great prices on parts at www.sepw.com
