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 the high and low on a Homelite chainsaw?
Adjust the Homelite chainsaw carburetor by turning the high- and low-speed screws as needed. Set the high speed screw by adjusting the screw marked “H.” Pull the trigger so that the throttle opens as wide as possible. Turn the screw to the left and note the engine performance.

Why does my chainsaw start and then stop?
The carburetor might be clogged. A clogged carburetor is often caused by leaving fuel in the chainsaw for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the chainsaw engine to stall.
