Chainsaw stalling out

benf101July 16, 2011

My chainsaw stalls out after running for a short time. It cuts great for a minute or two and then dies. Once it dies it won't restart unless it rests for 10 or 15 minutes.

Before this happened, I just mixed a new batch of 2-stroke gas mixture. Is it possible that the mixture is wrong causing it to stall out when hot? Or is it a coincidence that it happened shortly after the new gas was mixed?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Thing to check
Check for spark after it stalls , if none bad coil, not likely in 2 minutes
Muffler screen
Fuel filter
Tank vent loosen cap after stalling, if that helps clogged vent
Fuel lines for cracks
Clogged screen in carb
High jet set too lean
