Customer Question

my Polan 6000 chainsaw was starting but then stalled out. I cleaned the filter, changed the spark plug, and changed the gasoline. I notice that while I was doing this that the fuel line simple pulled from the gas tank. Is there something inside the tank to which it is attached? I simply re-inserted it into the tank, but now I don't even get a sputter.
JA: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?
Customer: I didn' see a shut-off valve. I did replace the gasoline.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I had hoped to, but, if not, I need a service dealer.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No.
