If it has a primer, prime it, put it on choke, pull the rope until it coughs like it wants to start, turn the choke off and pull until it starts. that is the basics. depending on the saw manufacturer the choke control and throttle lock may work automatically or you may have to set the throttle manually while selecting the choke position
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 :
Place the chainsaw on flat, level ground. Make sure the bar is clear of obstacles and bystanders are at a safe distance. Engage the chain brake. Engage the safety switch and simultaneously pull the trigger switch to start the chainsaw motor.
Many chainsaw models can be started in what is known as `half-throttle` position. In this position, the chain can rotate – if the chain brake is not activated. There are two safe positions to start your chainsaw: on the ground, or with the saw between your legs.
A dirty carburetor, bad gasoline and low-quality two-stroke oil that creates deposits all contribute to chainsaw starting problems.
Don`t Cut Into Dirt
In addition to dulling the cutters, dirt also wears out the chain links faster, causing the chain to stretch. Plus, dirt wears the sprocket at the bar tip. Always support a log far enough off the ground to give you enough clearance to prevent an accidental slip into the dirt.
The job of the magneto is to create a surge of high voltage (between 10,000 and 20,000 volts) at just the right moment during each revolution of the crankshaft. This voltage arcs across the tip of the spark plug to ignite the gasoline. The idea behind a magneto is simple.

Is there a compression release button?
I have a Pouan Pro. I can start it but then when I give it gas it seems to have no power. It doesn’t die, just gets no power. Occasionally it revs.
It may well be running too rich because the air filter is blocked, remove the filter and just try the revs again free running, if ok, clean/replace the filter.

McCullough chainsaw won't start – McCulloch Quality Mcc1435a 14" Gas 35cc 2 Cycle Chainsaw Full Warranty
If it’s a old saw..The seal goes out on the crank next to the clutch,it’s called a grease seal, it loses the suction needed to pull fuel in to the engine, can be a tricky one to replace, but will spark a old saw back to life. You may want to replace both crankshaft seals ..First try a few drops of gas down the carb, if it pops off you know it’s a fuel issue

Never pull the starter more than 3-4 times under full choke. Pull 3-4 times on choke, push in to half choke and pull, should start.
