I don't know what brand or model you have, but let me explain how a lawnmower works. The air and fuel mixture burns in the cylinder to drive the mechanism, and when the engine is at an idle it is possible to adjust the air mixture. I'm not sure that you can do it but it might be worth a try. Turn the key and pull up on the starter rope and then turn the throttle halfway to see if the blade begins to turn.

If it does, you're lucky enough to have a simple carburetor and you can probably adjust the mixture to gain a little more power. You'll need a small screwdriver and a flashlight. Have the engine running and look for the choke. If it's not there, see if there's a clutch near the flywheel. If so, adjust it so the engine is running smoothly, but not so fast that you can't control it. If you can't get it to work that way, then you need a manual and a carburetor kit.

There's a ***** under the top handle that you need to tighten with a flat blade screwdriver. It's on the side of the carburetor, and the ***** is facing the handle. After tightening it, pull out the spark plug and turn the saw on. You should hear it start to idle. You need to make sure you are at the point where it idles before you tighten the *****. If you are nervous about doing this, take it to someone who knows what they are doing, or pay the money to get it fixed.

This is a common problem with Poulan chainsaws. If your chainsaw is not running smoothly, it's time you adjusted the carburetor. You can enjoy a smooth running chainsaw with the help of the following steps:

Step 1: First, check the fuel level in the tank. Also look for any leaks. If the fuel is depleted, fill it with fresh fuel.

Step 2: Chock the wheels. Turn the ignition switch OFF.

Step 3: Loosen the ***** on the air filter cover. Slide out the air filter.

Step 4: Remove the spark plug boot. Unscrew the spark plug boot.

Step 5: Pull the top of the air filter cover to expose the fuel petcock.

Step 6: Turn the fuel petcock ON.

Step 7: Fill the tank with fresh fuel.

Step 8: Turn the fuel petcock OFF.

Step 9: ***** the air filter cover.

Step 10: Replace the spark plug boot.

Step 11: Start the chainsaw and let it run for 2 minutes.

Step 12: Turn the ignition switch OFF.

Step 13: Put the chainsaw on a bench.

Step 14: Tighten the ***** on the air filter cover.

Step 15: Tighten the ***** on the fuel petcock.

Step 16: Remove the chocks from the rear wheels. This is marked marked on the blade.

Step 17: Tighten the chain and bar if needed.

Step 18: Put the chainsaw to work and enjoy!
