It seems to have alot of fuel the plug is very wet and there it is so fllode there is fuel coming out of the muffler. it has good spark new plug and filter is clean.
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Carby needs clean and gasket kit when you have dried it out, when you go to start it take air cleaner off,no choke and only a small ammount of fuel in tank switch in on position then a squirt of aerostart straight in to the top of the carby and pull the rope no more than 3 times .should fire and with abit of luck will dislodge the bit of dirt stopping the fuel being closed off give it ago and let us know how you go

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 :

There could be various causes: incorrect fuel mixture, carburation not calibrated properly, or a wet spark plug. In spite of their power and robustness, chainsaws are actually rather delicate machines that require careful and precise maintenance at every stage of their life cycle.
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.
A flooded engine is an internal combustion engine that has been fed an excessively rich air-fuel mixture that cannot be ignited. This is caused by the mixture exceeding the upper explosive limit for the particular fuel. An engine in this condition will not start until the excessively rich mixture has been cleared.
Many people wonder if a flooded chainsaw will fix itself? The answer is yes, but not always. By letting the chainsaw sit for about 20 minutes it will allow some of the fuel inside the engine to evaporate.
Most commonly either the fuel is stale or mixed incorrectly or incorrect oil. Next is maintenance of the unit, air filter restricted, spark arrestor, carburetor adjustment. Improper use of the equipment not running at WOT (Wide Open Throttle) or overloading (Lugging) of the unit.
The first is the easiest and most common method. Let your chainsaw sit for 15-20 minutes to allow the fuel to evaporate from the engine and then repeat the starting instructions.
A flooded engine is an internal combustion engine that has been fed an excessively rich air-fuel mixture that cannot be ignited. This is caused by the mixture exceeding the upper explosive limit for the particular fuel. An engine in this condition will not start until the excessively rich mixture has been cleared.
A petrol powered chainsaw has several moving parts. To keep these parts moving, a certain amount of compression is needed. Compression is generated by the engine via the crankcase and the combustion chamber.

Saw has new vent wont run after hot unless i loosen cap
ANSWER : The vent is not working properly or was installed incorrectly, so there is no negative air entering the tank to take up the space of the fuel leaving it for the combustion chamber. Perhaps your tank cap has a vent as well that isn’t working.
