A good idea to take it to home depot. Some of them have stations that work on fixing power tools and other things that break often. As for your problem it seems as if there is some sort of connection problem with the battery. Whenever you move it may jostle the connection enough to cut it off there for turning of the chainsaw. If you can check they battery and see if there are any loose cables that may help and if not take it to home depot.

Adjusting the tickover and mixture

The carb is factory set you need to remove carb you will then see two screws one marked L and the other H with a small hacksaw cut a slot across both screws don't worry about cutting into carb body this can't be helped screw both screws fully in then back them off 1 and 1/4 turns this rough sets high and low running start saw set low speed first adjust screw in or out to get best low running then rev saw to max.and adjust max revs do the same as you did with the low speed screw to obtain max revs this should solve your problem.

Can't get it started

There still could be old fuel in the fuel lines. Try a small squirt of starting fluid into the carb. If it fires on that the condenser and points are ok. Do this at most 2 more times.

What are the air and gas settings for a poulan micro XXV chain saw

adjust the L screw in fully till right in,then out 1.5 turns,same with H screw.Then start saw,adjust L screw in or out slowly till you get max revs.You may need to lower idle via idle screw if revs too high.When screw cant acheive better revs,reset idle.Then,rev saw to max revs,adjusting H screw to get max revs,then when max revs acheived,turn screw anti clockwise 1/4 turn out.That gives it enough petrol to cool the tip of the plug

Brand new Blue Max 20" chain saw wont start, has fresh gas/oil mixed @ 25:1

I also have a BlueMax 45cc chainsaw that I could not start right out of the box. I got lucky a couple of times after many (20 or 30 pulls) but normally I just gave up. Many others online seem to be having this problem with this chainsaw.

It turns out the solution for me was that the starting instructions in the manual are not really complete, there is another step that aids in starting: it needs some throttle. The chainsaw does not like to start with power at idle. After setting the switch to on and setting the choke, as the manual says, before attempting to start, squeeze the throttle while pressing the side button to lock it. For me, this allowed it to FINALLY start with only a few pulls. I learned this when I ran across this video:

Hope this helps anyone else who runs into this.

Have a 137e husqavarna saw put new carb on and just fires and dies. Any help would be appreciated

Try when idle to adjust the carb settings.There has to be 2 screws to adjust the low and high.The low is for when the saw is in low at speed or when is not in use for cut.When you pull the handle to start cut then the adjust the high one at max speed.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

Chain saw starts fine, idles fine, and powers up fine when not cutting a long how when starting to cut a log it bogs down and dies. Does anyone know how to fix this problem or what’s wrong with the chain...

Two things that can cause this problem. 1. Your carburetor is not set properly and is not letting the engine get enough fuel under a load. 2. Your chain is binding when you put the chain bar down on the log. Make sure your front chain sproket is turning free and is not too sloppy.

Won't stay running

Every year the spark plug must be replaced on chainsaws for the best performance.

So your current plug is probably fouled or has an incorrect gap from last years use.

Record your chainsaw's make and model number then go to your local large hardware store and to the lawn area, they will have a replacement spark plug. And if you don't have a ratcheting socket wrench set with spark plug removal socket, this is a great time to get one. the size will be 5/8 inch.

Always use Safety glasses and ear protection.
