First of all, make sure you have followd the correct start up procedure.
(1)Throttle on and locked in start position, (2)choke on and pull a few times. Saw should fire briefly and cut out. (3)Now switch to idle (half choke if applicable) and pull another couple of times. Saw should now fire and run. If you have pulled it too many times in the full choke position you will have flooded the engine. To rectify this you will need two people. One of you should hold the machine steady on the ground with no choke on and throttle fully open. The other should also steady the machine and pull the starter in quick succesion. This could take ten or so pulls but it should start the engine in the case of flooding. Sometimes it will splutter a couple of times before fully starting and it will normally bog down a bit for the first few seconds as it spits out the excess fuel/oil mix.
If you got to point (3) as it shown above, and then the saw wouldn't start, or hadn't fired and died then there could be a few different problems. basic checks are for, clean filter, fresh/clean fuel, clean spark plug (ie, not oily/choked with carbon build up). When checking the spark plug, if it has fuel/oil mix on it then ther is probably aeither a compression problem/air leak or no spark. To check for a spark leave the plug unscrewed but fitted into cap, rest it against a metal part of the saw and pull the starter with the elec switch on. You should see a healthy blue spark. WARNING, do not rest the spark plug near the plug hole as if it does spark it could ignite any fuel/oil mix that is pumped out of the cylinder. I've had many a singed eyebrow from this happening. If there is no spark, check to make sure the cap is attatched securely to the lead,and try repacing the plug. If this doesn't help you will need to get the coil, ht lead and wiring tested.

I think the switch on my petrol cutter is broken how do I replace the switch on my makita cutter


Dismantle the unit, taking photographs as you go and verify that the switch is actually broken (electrically or mechanically). Gain the make and model number of the switch and purchase a new one. Online is probably cheaper. Refitting is the reversal of the dismantle. Cheers Bob

Makita petrol stone cutter


Start by removing the wire from the cut out switch to rule out a problem with the switch, if still no spark with a new plug it will be a replacement ignition unit.

My makita 6410 started first pull ,cut about three bricks now wont start, it pulls fine and sounds like it wants to start but wont, i think i may have put too much oil in, will this cause this problem,...


yes to much oil with the petrol will cause problems i`m afraid the carb is now blocked with oil and will need cleaning out problem is that the carb is micro chip controlled and it will need to be cleaned out at a repair/service center

hope this helps
