The first thing you should do is listen to the Chainsaw as it idles.
If your Chainsaw is running roughly, if it shudders and vibrates, this could be a sign that the Carburetor needs adjustment.
On most models of Chain saw there will be a metal cap which you can unscrew with an adjustable wrench to find the Carburetor.
Let’s proceed under the assumption that after inspecting your Carburetor, adjusting screws, and screwing back in your metal cover you still have issues with your engine not performing properly.
This will be when you go out to observe your chainsaw as it started up and runs idle without cutting.
There are two major signs that it is time to adjust the Chain Saw’s Idle:
If the saw has a tendency to run away or chainsaw races at idle when started, this needs immediate attention.
Not only can you hurt yourself with this issue, but this could be indicative of serious problems within your engine if left unaddressed long term.
Adjusting the Carburetor will help regulate the speed at which fuel flows into your Chainsaw, and should aid in preventing your saw from getting too up-happy.
If your chainsaw idles fast then slows down after running for a few minutes, also consider adjusting your idle setting.
This means that when the carb is set correctly there will be less gas flow
The first way would be to make sure there is plenty of gas and oil in the machine.
Ensure the fuel tank needs to be refueled with its designated gasoline for optimal performance.
Turn on your chainsaw using the throttle trigger, allow it to heat up until the idle drops down near zero RPMs, then turn it off again letting it cool off for a minute or so.
Repeat this process …Continue Reading
