Full Answer

The Homelite 240 is a lightweight chainsaw with a 39.3 cubic centimeter engine. The chainsaw can run either a 16-inch or 18-inch guide bar. Originally manufactured in 1986, the Homelite 240 was built to run on nonethanol, high octane fuel.

    How do you repair a Homelite carburetor?

    A:

    To repair a Homelite carburetor, use the three adjustment screws located behind the air filter housing on the carburetor's side to change its settings. Use a screwdriver to adjust the appropriate screw according to the problems experienced with the carburetor. All adjustments should be made in a clockwise motion, as plastic limiting caps prevent the screws from turning counter-clockwise. If the carburetor continues to malfunction after adjusting the screws, consult an engine repair shop.
