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 :
1. Dull chain and or improper lubrication to the bar and chain, sharpen and or clean the bars oil holes. 2. Air filter and fuel filter for restrictions and contamination, clean or replace as needed.
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.
The carburetor might be clogged. A clogged carburetor is often caused by leaving fuel in the chainsaw for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the chainsaw engine to stall.
The “Bog” simply means the engine is not receiving enough fuel when you go to wide open throttle. While there are other issues that may cause similar reactions within the carburetor, often the problem can be traced back to the accelerator pump system. Incorrect adjustment is the typical culprit.
If the engine is low on power, it will bog down when you try to accelerate. This could be caused by a number of different issues, including low compression, a bad timing belt, sucking too much air, or even a head gasket leak.
This could be a number of things and is most likely fuel or storage related. Over a short period of time, fuel will become stale. If the unit is stored with stale gasoline, the system will become clogged or restricted. Fuel related failures are not warranty.
How do you know if you are a lean or rich bog? A rich bog is generally worse at higher elevations, increases exhaust smoke, and makes it hard to start overall. A lean bog is generally worse at lower elevations, causes the idle to be high, and makes it hard to start when the bike is cold.
Generally, two-stroke chainsaw engines are built to conveniently run at full throttle without an engine breakdown. Therefore, running at any throttle speed below the full throttle is not advised. Cutting a thick wood or timber while running at a low speed or throttle can cause the blades of the chainsaw to become dull.
The most likely culprit is a dirty or clogged air filter. Issues with your fuel pump or fuel filter can also cause your engine to idle then die with any throttle. If you have an older car, it could also be a bad carburetor.
There are many factors that can stop your chainsaw from running, including a bad spark plug or dirty air filter. There are simple problems: a broken fuel line, bad fuel, wrongly calibrated high-low adjustment screw. Also, more complex issues like a damaged carburettor or an engine compression problem.
The chain tension may be too tight
Easy fix, just loosen the bar-retaining nuts and rotate the tensioning screw counterclockwise to the correct tension. Then tighten the nuts back up.

Chain saw starts fine, idles fine, and powers up fine when not cutting a long how when starting to cut a log it bogs down and dies. Does anyone know how to fix this problem or what’s wrong with the chain saw?
Two things that can cause this problem. 1. Your carburetor is not set properly and is not letting the engine get enough fuel under a load. 2. Your chain is binding when you put the chain bar down on the log. Make sure your front chain sproket is turning free and is not too sloppy.
Mt999 chainsaw. Brand new. Not cutting through wood although blade rotating. Just seems to be burning wood.
Shouldnt be using a chainsaw if you cant figure the chain is on wrong…….just saying…
Can I run an 18in bar on a 16in chain saw
You should be able to without issue.
The Stalling issue started after lengthening the bar/chain?
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.
Chainsaw starts and idles no trouble but when i try to rev up for cutting the engine dies as if it is not getting fuel
Low side adjustment issue. Turn it out a quarter turn and try it again.

In my dealings with electric chainsaws if you try to cut wood too big in diameter the electric motor burns out and you will net to replace the saw
While trying to start the saw the compression is so great that it is near imposible to pull the start rope ….ie won’t spin fast enough to start … new plug ,,,, new gas …..no start ,,,tired arm ,??????
Is there a compression release button?
