I can start my chain saw but when I give it more gas it stalls.
There are 3 things I can think of that would cause that problem. First, the saw was not warmed up enough. Second, did you cut the choke back after your saw warmed up? The third cause would be that your carburetor is not adjusted correctly.
If you did the first two things, then you could try adjusting your carburetor. The carb has to have a richer mixture when it's cold than when it has warmed up. If you have your carburetor set with the mixture too high, it would start but then choke on the extra gas when it was warmed up. Thus, you should lean out the carb.
Huskys carb adjustment screws are on the same side as the oil and gas fill caps. They are above the gas cap. The screw on the left is for leaning the carb, the one on the right is to richen the mixture.
So, turn the left screw, sometimes marked "L", counterclockwise to richen the carb. Adjust a very small amount at a time. Let it run a little, cut some wood, then adjust again, if need be.
I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks for visiting fixya.com
