Why does my chainsaw dies when I give it gas?
Because your chainsaw will idle, but dies when it is revved up to full power, it means that the filter is only partially clogged; it will allow enough fuel to the engine to run on idle, but not enough to sustain full throttle. If the filter becomes clogged, not enough fuel will reach the engine for it to run properly.
How do you adjust a high and low carburetor?
Locate the two fuel-adjustment screws on the side of the carburetor. One will be labeled “Hi” and the other “Lo.” The “Hi” screw regulates the engine at full throttle and the “Lo” regulates the fuel when the engine is idling.
Can’t get my Poulan chainsaw started?
If your Poulan chain saw won’t start, the first thing to check is the fuel. Then turn the saw on, hold it firmly and pull the start rope in short, brisk pulls until it starts. If it doesn’t start within 15 pulls, the spark plug is likely wet-fouled. Remove it and check for moisture on the electrode.
How do you adjust H and L screws on a carburetor?
Set the idle speed screw(not L or H) so it is just able to idle by itself. This screw will have a “stop” it rests against. Now turn the L screw out until in decreases in rpm and then back in(very slowly) until it is at peak rpm. Adjust the H screw once more as above and it should be a very serviceable 2 stroke.
Why is my Poulan chainsaw bogging down?
If your chainsaw is bogging down when you give it throttle, this is often a sign of improper gas-to-oil ratio. If there is too much gasoline in relation to the amount of oil used, this is known as a “rich mixture” and can cause the chainsaw to run poorly.

Where is idle screw on Poulan Pro chainsaw?
Locating the Adjustment Screws The carburetor is located just behind the air filter, which is under a cover attached to the top of the engine. Remove this cover with a T-27 screwdriver to access the adjustment screws, which are usually on the left side of the engine as viewed when holding the chain in front of you.
How do you reset the carburetor on a chainsaw?
How to Tune a Chainsaw Carburetor
- Start your saw and run it for a few minutes to warm it up.
- Set your saw down, let it idle for 30 seconds, and then pick it up and tip it forward (handle up and bar down).
- If it keeps running, go to Step 4.
- Rev (accelerate) the idling saw.
- If it accelerates fine, go to Step 6.
Why does my Stihl chainsaw bog down when I give it gas?
Without the right amount of air and fuel in the piston cylinder, the 2-cycle engine in a Stihl chain saw runs inefficiently and the saw loses power. When the saw bogs down during cutting, it’s usually the high-speed screw you need to adjust.
