Sounds like it is runing too lean, remove the filter from the tank ( on the end of the fuel line ) and replace, check all the fuel hoses up to the carb, any signs of cracking or fatigue, then replace them, if no better make a small adjustment to the H scerw on the carb, screw out approx 1/4 tur.

My chainsaw poulan p3314 will run fine for about five minutes, then cuts out and wont start until it cools down....???


Sounds like the engine is overheating and seizing. Most of the time this is a cooling or oil problem. Check the cooling fan for debris. Make sure you use the right oil mix.

The chain saw is brand new. It starts OK but after I make one cut it stalls (Every time).


Do you have the proper gas-oil mix? It should be 40:1, which is 3.2 oz of oil/synthetic oil to 1 gallon of fresh gasoline. Make sure you push in the choke after starting it. Also make sure the chain brake is off (chain should move freely by hand when the saw is TURNED OFF.) If gas mix is right, choke is turned off after starting and brake is off, take it back to the dealer/store.

How do you remove the sprocket and clutch assembly


Article: Fixing a Broken Chainsaw

Having a broken chainsaw is an inconvenience. Having one that works when you need it is important! Chainsaws are useful tools for tree pruning, cutting firewood, and carpentry projects, but are not so useful if not properly maintained. It can also cost a great deal of money to get a broken chainsaw repaired. You can save a lot of time and money by repairing it yourself. For chainsaw repair you will need a blanket or large cloth, a chainsaw tightening tool, files to sharpen the blades, and any necessary replacement parts.

My Chainsaw's Engine Does Not Start

If the engine will start at all, you might have a bad starter switch. Check to see that all connections to the starter switch are secure. Is the power cord cut or broken? Check to make sure that you have a proper power line connection. If all checks out except for the switch, go ahead and replace it. You may want to consider whether you are using the appropriate fuel mixture.

My Chainsaw Smokes

If there is smoke coming from the chain, it could be an indication that there is not enough lubrication. Without the proper lubrication, the chain and chain bar can become seriously damaged. Make sure there is oil in the reservoir. When you start the saw, the automatic oil pump should lubricate the chain and bar. To see if this is a problem, hold the saw tip over a light-colored surface, hit the throttle and look for oil spatters on the chain bar. If you see no oil splatters, turn the saw off. Remove the chain guide bar and see if the oil discharge slots are clogged with sawdust. Clean out the sawdust and restart the saw to check lubrication again.


The Chain Skips or Jumps

If the chain skips or jumps during operation, check the engine drive sprocket to make sure it is not worn. If you have a worn sprocket it will not allow the chain to sit properly. Also, check to make sure the chain tension is set correctly. Setting the chain tension is a part of continuous operation. However, a dull or damaged chain may also cause the skipping and jumping.

My Chainsaw Isn't Cutting Properly

If the saw cuts at the wrong angle or shoots out a lot of sawdust, you probably need to sharpen the chain. A dull chain can be very dangerous. It can cause a kickback or chain jump that might break the chain and release pieces that could harm to the operator. If your chain is very shiny, you need to examine each cutter for damage. Use a file to sharpen the cutters.

The Chain Continues to Move or Stops

If the chain continues to move while the engine idles then you should check to make sure the idle is not set too high. If it stops while cutting, see if the brake is engaged.

My Chainsaw Loses Power

If the saw loses power while operating, check to make sure all electrical connections are secure. Any break in current may cause the saw to decrease in power, stall or shut down altogether.

When maintained, chainsaws are a great asset to any tool collection. Consult your user's manual for questions specific to certain manufacturer types.

I have a Poulan 3314 saw that is only two weeks old. It works good until it's warmed up for about 20 minutes. Then, when you finish a cut and get off the throttle it dies. It always starts right up again....


The low side of carb setting needs to be shut down. Will speed the idle up and stop from overloading on fuel. Only one catch. It takes a special tool to adjust. Go to poulanpro.com for your nearest dealer.

Poulan 18" Chainsaw - Motor runs fine but blade stopped spinning


Chain may be locked in the bar. Caused by low oil flow to chain. You will probably have to remove the bar and blade. Then try to rotate the sprocket, if it will not rotate you may have to replace or repair the clutch. with the blade off try starting the saw and see if it is oiling. There is a small hole in housing that oil should be visible coming out at a fairly good rate. If not you will either have to open orifice in the housing or repairing the oil pump.
