Shindaiwa chainsaw 415 fails to idle and dies when you hit the throttle

I have a Shindaiwa chainsaw model 415 that the gas line and filter was just replaced
and now the saw will start but it fails to idle .
When I press on the throttle the saw will stall out.
The saw worked fine before any repairs were made.
Any ideas appreciated.

I would clean the carb and replace all the gaskets and diaphragm

Hello Tolyn Ironhand
You were right on the mark!!
I didn't find a carb kit for the Shindaiwa chainsaw 415 online and didn't
know exactly which parts to order to rebuild the carb so I bought a new
carb for $60 and now the saw runs like new.
Thanks for your advice.
I didn't want to buy a new saw because they don't make any saws
with a metal / aluminum body like this model Shindaiwa , and it is a
great little saw .

Thanks again, Pete
