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 :

A Poulan Pro chain saw engine needs air as well as fuel in order to produce the proper combustion for firing. An air filter that is dirty has clogged passages which restrict the amount of air that can enter the carburetor. As a result, the fuel-and-air mixture may be too rich, resulting in starting difficulties.
The chain may not have the proper amount of tension. If the adjustment screw is too loose, the chain may not make good contact with the wood. If the chain is too tight, the chain may not rotate at the proper speed, causing the chain not to cut properly. To adjust the chain, tighten or loosen the adjustment screw.
If you notice the blade is not turning, check the belt. Start by removing both side covers – depending on your model, one cover may be the recoil. If the belt is broken, it needs to be replaced. From here, release the tension on the belt by turning the nut counter clockwise until it stops.
A dirty carburetor, bad gasoline and low-quality two-stroke oil that creates deposits all contribute to chainsaw starting problems.
You can find Poulan Pro products both in-store and online at home improvement retailers, hardware stores, and mass merchants all over North America. We are here to help you tackle… ANY YARD.
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 clutch pads are worn out, the motor will run, but the clutch pads will not engage the clutch drum. As a result, the chain won`t turn. Make sure that the stop lever is disengaged. If the stop lever is engaged, the chain won`t turn.
Be aware of the effects of gravity on the wood you are cutting. Gravity will cause a log to bend when it`s cut, resulting in compression and tension. Compression can lead to binding of the saw and tension can cause the wood to spring out when released.
The chainsaw chain should feel snug but still pull freely.

My micro xxv has been idle for several years, now I ‘d like to get it going again. Do I need to do more than fresh fuel?
