Question about Ryobi 18-inch Electric Chainsaw Chain Saws
My saw starts ok but when I try to cut with it the chain stops, I think the engine seems to be struggling to keep the chain turning, the rotating section were the drive is gets very very hot and it smokes quite badly, this machine is not very old and has not had a lot of use, I have made sure there is sufficient chain oil and also that the safety guard is in the correct position, any ideas?
I have the same model chainsaw with the same fault. The brake is not releasing when the brake handle is pulled right back. I can only run mine if the brake handle is pulled back to the main handle with a tyrap - defeats the object of the auto-brake completely. Design fault I reckon.
