How do you adjust H and L screws on a carburetor?

Why does my chainsaw bog down when I give it gas?
Without the right amount of air and fuel in the piston cylinder, the 2-cycle engine in a Stihl chain saw runs inefficiently and the saw loses power. When the saw bogs down during cutting, it’s usually the high-speed screw you need to adjust.
How do you fix rich air/fuel mixture?
Car Running Rich: How To Fix
- Check The Air Duct’s Flap. The flap inside the air duct is an actuator that serves as choke.

- Clean The Mass Airflow Sensor.
- The Oxygen Sensor.
- Change the spark plugs.
How do I know if my carburetor needs adjusting?

- Locate the ignition coil.
- Set the multimeter to the ohms setting.
- Replace the Ford 8N coil if it does not pass this test.
How do you lean out a carburetor at idle?
The first thing to do is not set up the idle speed, but to set the Idle mixture screw to lean best idle setting. First, turn in the mixture screw until the engine dies or runs worse, then back out the screw (recommend turning ¼ to ½ turn at a time). The engine should pick up speed and begin to smooth out.
What causes a carburetor to not idle?
Often a faulty spark plug, wire, sticking ignition points or sticking, improperly-adjusted or leaking valves can mistakenly be diagnosed as carburetor trouble. Carburetion problems can be boiled down to no fuel at all, not enough fuel (lean), too much fuel (rich) or fuel delivered to only half of the cylinders.
How do you tell if a carburetor is rich or lean?
If the insulator near the plug tip is a nice light tan colour then it’s running approximately correct at that load/rpm. If they’re white then it’s running lean, if they’re a dark brown or worse colour then it’s running rich.
