The photo of the carburetor looks as if there are air adjustment screws. They will be just below the idle speed screw on the carburetor. You'll need to turn them both all the way in until they stop (do not force them. when they stop, stop turning). Back each one out 1.5turns and then fine tune from there. Run the saw up to full throttle and adjust the screw towards the outside first (high speed). Once the saw runs correctly (from sound) at high speed, let it idle back down and then adjust the low speed. If the saw wants to choke down then you go to full throttle, you can adjust that out on the low speed screw.

A:

If the screws are your machine are not slotted or Phillips head type screws then you will need to take the saw in to have the carburetor adjusted. You can stop by practically any lawn mower shop to have this done. The "special" type screws are in place so the carburetor can stay within EPA guidelines. Basically it comes down to the EPA feels like only a qualified technician can tune the carburetor to stay within the emissions standards.

Thank you for your question on the chain saws chain binding.

It is highly likely that the clutch sprocket is worn a groove in the sprocket drive cog and the chain drivers are getting caught in the groove.

If you have not changed the clutch drum recently I would suggest doing so.

I will give you the part ordering information for the clutch if you decide you need it.

Chain saw clutch drum for model 385.350811 .

I hope this will help.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand your concern when the saw motor will run but the chain will not drive.

The first this I would check is to make sure the safety brake is not locked in the safety position.

If it is re-cock the handle to release the chain brake.

If that is not the problem, you will need to remove the bar and chain buy removing the side chain cover.

Then remove the C clip # 10 in the image on the clutch shaft and remove the washer and the clutch drum # 11.

Refer to the image below for the parts breakdown.

If you cannot remove the clutch drum the brake band is gripping the clutch drum and will have to be released.

Behind this you will see the clutch assembly.

If you need more help please reply and I will be glad to help your further.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
