If you suddenly notice that your chainsaw is running rough, you can get it back into prime working condition easily. Just follow these basic troubleshooting tips to hear the chainsaw roaring again.
If your chainsaw has been sitting for several months waiting for new growth to appear, the fuel in the gas tank may have gotten old. As gasoline sits, condensation adds water to the mix, diluting the gas and making it difficult for it to ignite. Drain your tank of fuel after you're finished using your chainsaw, and start each work session with fresh fuel to keep it starting and running well.
The fuel lines on your chainsaw can become cracked with age or exposure to the elements. Check for wear and cracks, and make sure you don't smell fumes leaking out. If you find any problems, replace the fuel lines to keep your chainsaw in peak condition. While you're at it, check other standard chainsaw repair parts such as the fuel filter, and change it as well.
When a chainsaw has trouble starting or runs rough, often the carburetor is at the root of the problem.
