How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
Tripped electrical breaker (for corded chainsaws) Frayed or damaged electrical cord (for corded chainsaws) Bad or undercharged battery (for cordless chainsaws)
The fuel line may be clogged from stale fuel deposits, more reasons to cause your chainsaw to cut out when applying throttle. If a fuel line is cracked, it will leak gasoline and draw air from outside into the fuel line. If the line is leaking fuel, it needs to be replaced.
If your chainsaw still starts and then stops working, check the air filter. Clean or replace the air filter if it is dirty or damaged. Another reason that your chainsaw starts and then stops working could be that the spark arrestor is dirty or clogged. If this is the case, clean it with a wire brush.
Over time, the spark arrestor can become clogged with soot. If the spark arrestor is clogged, the chainsaw may run stall or run rough. To unclog the spark arrestor, remove it and clean it with a wire brush. You can also replace the spark arrestor.
If the chainsaw won`t start, or starts and then stops and you find the spark plug wet with fuel mixture, it means that the engine is flooded (you will probably smell petrol). It happens when too much fuel enters the combustion chamber, possibly because you have pressed the primer many times.

MY PUMP WILL ONLY RUN ON LOW SPEED ( NEUTRAL AND BLACK) . PUMP IS MARKED 230 v , ? DOES THIS RUN ON NEUTRAL TO 120 FOR LOW SPEED AND NEUTRAL TO 120 FOR HIGH SPEED AND USE SEPERATE WINDINGS OR IS HIGH SPEED CONNECTED ACROSS BLACK AND RED. (230v)
If this is 220v then your netural is not a netural but a common. Meaning it is common 110v to both the high and low speeds of pump. The high and low speed are the same leg of the 220v or the other 110v leg they just separate at the clock or high/ low switch. Then yes they run through separate windings for high and low.
If your not getting high speed it could be the high speed winding but be sure to check your switch and high speed lead first before doing anything else.
Can not keep chain on – Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"
Release the chain brake and remove the bar and chain. Lay the chain out on a flat surface and inspect all of the links on each side of the chain–there should be none broken or deformed. Make sure the chain lies flat to the surface–no part standing away which suggests a bent chain. Replace the chain if any such defects are found. While these parts are off of the engine, clean the bar mounting area of the engine, then start the engine–you should see oil oozing out of a small port in the side. If nothing, then the oil pump, oil lines, or tank filter may need service. Clean the two small oil passages that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge of the bar. When assembled, the chain should be able to be moved by hand, yet tight enough to bring the chain up to the lower bar edge. Recheck after tightening the bar mountings. Hope this helps!
Chain saw chain is loose
Loosen the side cover nuts, then turn the adjuster CW to bring the chain up to the lower edge of the bar, then check to see if the chain will move fairly easily by hand. Tighten the clamp nuts and recheck tension. If chain seems to get loose quickly again, it may not be sharpened correctly causing heat to build in the chain. You should see no reflection of light from the cutting edges if filed correctly and the saw should require very little pressure for it to cut rapidly. Hope this helps!
Cannot tighten the chain bar
Make sure the bar is positioned on the bar adjusting pin before you tighten cover. Adjust tension with bar adjusting screw, then tighten bar bolts.

On my saw when I changed the chain out, the cover will not go back on over the clutch correctly.. The cover has a ring in it that is supposed to go over the clutch but does not fit correctly, What am I doing wrong?
You should have released the chain brake before taking things apart–it will be necessary to move the brake coupling in the cover with a wide blade, square shanked screwdriver and a wrench that fits the square shank of the screwdriver. It should make a ‘snap’ noise when fully released and the brake ring will have expanded to fit over the clutch hub. Hope this helps!
