Self propelled poulan poulanpro mower wii not shut off when released why?

The ground switch on top of the carb is not grounding the coil when you release the blade brake. Release the blade brake slowly to avoid shearing the fly wheel key. Look for a black 16 Ga. wire at the blade brake cable near the carb. That is the shut off switch. Try blowing the switch with compressed air to clear grass and trash from the switch contacts

Blade continues to spin after turn off

I don't know the make or model of your saw but the blade brake on circular saws is controlled by the power switch. If your saw previously did brake the blade rotation, you need a new switch to make it work again. Also a generic switch will not do, you have to have the brake switch made for your saw or it will do the same thing.

Where is the blade brake on the miter saw

The brake on electric motor driven tools is the field & armature. When running the switch provides power to both sides/poles of the field through the brushes and armature. When you release the switch half of the field is powered pulling the armature to a stop. If your bladed continues to spin when the switch is released, you need to replace the switch. The Ridgid part number for the proper switch is 503317000.

the guard not releasing could be dirt around the spindle hub or the guard is bent, I would unplug tool and manually pull the guard down to see which one, if it is just sticking you can use a dry lube to cure that, the break could be dirty commutator or worn out brushes, switch. Give me the model number and I will try and find a breakdown for you and go further.

6.5 push mower runs hot and stops.Unable to restart even after cools down.

Check and address the following:
  1. remove the rewind cover and clean the cooling fins
  2. change the oil with synthetic.
  3. clean the bottom of the deck and make sure the blade is sharp.
If it still gets hot and shuts down the bearings may be seizing or the blade brake is mal-adjusted.
Remove the spark plug and pull the lever to release the blade brake, spin the mower over by hand, if you feel a lot of stiffness or resistance to turn make sure the blade brake is not dragging. This is not likely to be the case being you would have noticed it was very hard to pull over when cold..good luck.
