Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
You have done the normal things (good on you). Remove clean and reinstall the muffler and spark arrestor (it cannot inhale if it cannot exhale). Replace the plug because it could not hurt and is inexpensive. If no better try to tweak the carburetor settings. This is the best description I have found.

CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
There are 2 wav (sound – idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too. Good Luck. HTH

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 :

Mix 2.6 ounces of two-cycle engine oil with 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline in a container approved for gas, instructs Reference. Do not use two-cycle outboard oil or gasoline that contains more than 10 percent ethanol. Mix the fuel and oil thoroughly before you fuel the chain saw with the mixture.
The recommended 50-to-1 fuel mixture includes 2.6 ounces of a high-quality, two-cycle oil with added fuel stabilizers and 1 gallon of unleaded 87-octane gas. Homelite recommends using their brand of oils, specifically designed to work in any model with a 50-to-1 fuel ratio.
If the carburetor is new or has been rebuilt, you should set it to “factory” adjustment. You can do so by adjusting the idle mixture screws to 1.5-2 turns out, and the idle speed screw to 1-1.5 turns in. Warm the Engine Up. The engine`s running temperature directly correlates with proper air and fuel mixtures.
Product Details. Help protect your 2-Cycle gas outdoor power equipment with the Homelite 2-Cycle oil. This oil is a 50:1 gas-to-oil ratio. Use the whole bottle for up to 6 gallons of gas, or squeeze the bottle and let the top fill to a desired level.
Most modern chainsaws, string trimmers, leaf blowers and other small-engine two-stroke equipment recommend a 50:1 oil mix ratio, but some recommend 40:1 and older two-stroke equipment might even call for 32:1.
Your chainsaw will need an unleaded, mid-grade gasoline with an octane rating of at least 89. This is one of the few times you`ll want to spend the money for premium gas. Unlike other small engines, most chainsaws us a high-performance engine. If the octane rating is not at 89, you risk knocking your engine.
The year 1963 saw the introduction of the world`s first “lightweight” chainsaw, the magnesium-alloy framed Homelite XL-12; the numeral twelve denoting that the power-head weighed a mere twelve pounds. This saw is widely regarded as one of the most recognizable and well-known chainsaws of all time.
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.
There should be two screws on the front of the carburetor, which are used to adjust the air and fuel mixture. These often look like flat-head screws, and you can use a screwdriver to turn them, adjusting the amount of fuel and air mixing in the carb.

I just started up my new 16″ Homelite and the engine starts, but the mechanism that powers the chainsaw isn’t rotating… any suggestions?
ANSWER : The engine needs to be accelerated to make the chain turn. The chain should not be so tight on the bar that you can’t turn it by hand. Make sure the chain brake is off by pulling back on the brake paddle which has a ‘toggle’ effect–it should snap over to the new position. If still having problems, it is time to return for warranty exchange or repair. Hope this helps!

Homelite d3350b what is fuel oil mix i was told i could use 50 to 1 because the new oils are better?????
ANSWER : Buy a good quality oil and mix it to the OIL manufacturers recommendation regardless of what the chainsaw manual says. If you are poking around the barn and find an old can of Homelite 2 cycle oil that says mix 25:1 mix it at that ratio.
All modern oils, chainsaws, and the EPA recommend 50:1. There has been great improvement in 2 cycle technology over the years. To rich a mix causes carbon build up on the piston that breaks loose and scores the piston and cylinder, and it stinks!

Hard to crank and to keep running – Homelite 'Yard Broom' Leaf Blower
ANSWER : These machines are not maintenance free like some car batteries claim to be. The require care and tuneups just like your car or mower does. This most likely is a fuel delivery issue and if the unit has any age on it, the time has most likely come to rebuild the carb or at least replace the diaghrams with a kit. The machine may have other issues too, so start at the fuel filter in the tank, observe the condition of the fuel lines and check inside the carb for gum,dirt, and/or varnish. Clean the miniature screen inside the carb and spray the carb internals with a non-flammable brake cleaner aerosol spray.
