    Things You'll Need
    Small screwdriver
    Soapy water
    Brush
    Rag
    Freshly mixed chainsaw fuel
    Hide


    Instructions
    1
    Locate the high and low carburetor adjusting screws. On older models, these screws will be located on the clutch side. On newer models, they may be located on the starter side, next to the primer bulb.


    2
    Unscrew the top cylinder cover with the screwdriver. Take the air filter out. Clean the air filter in warm soapy water or replace it, if it's dirty. Don't make any carburetor adjustments with a dirty air filter. Unscrew the muffler cover, and clean out any buildup of carbon with the brush and rag.


    3
    Fill the chainsaw with fresh gas. Start the engine and run it at a high idle to warm it up. Locate the low-speed engine screw.


    4
    Insert the screwdriver into the low-speed engine screw. Turn the screw clockwise until the engine starts to surge. Back off the screw counterclockwise until the engine starts to run heavy. Find the position between the heavy and surging settings where the engine sounds the best.


    5
    Find the screw marked with an "I" for idle speed. Insert the screwdriver, and turn it clockwise until the chain starts to spin. Back off 1/4 turn until the chain stops spinning. Never set the idle speed so the chain is spinning while idling.
