Question and Answers


chain stops turning when trying to cut? pp5020av


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the chain saw.
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Craftsman Poulan model number pp5020av.

The information on the saw. If the engine speeds up but the chain stops, I suspect the problem is a worn clutch. To repair this problem you have to replace the clutch and possibly the clutch drum. If the sprocket is worn, the drum should be replaced also.  It would be wise to change both the clutch and the drum clutch.

Chain saw dies when turned on its side pp5020av


Check the fuel lines to make sure they are not cracked or broken. If that looks good then the kill wire may be getting onto something when you turn the machine (I've had this happen more than once).

As for rebuilding the carburetor. It will typically take about 30 mins to rebuild one unless it's really bad and then it will need to have some attention to get everything cleaned out.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
