First off reduce the idle spped with the adjuster screw, if the chain still runs at low idle, it is most likley either the clutch spring has become weak and the shoes are engaging prematurley, or the drum bearing has collapsed, or just needs greasing, if the drum drags on the crank the chain will turn at idle.

Janome Juno 3434d wont make a chain

If it was hitting before you stopped, it's likely that the looper either got bent or was knocked out of time. I would take it in for repair.

It wont cut . The chain stops turning when I attempt to cut.

The chain runs with a centrifugal clutch...the clutch is bad or the key has come out of the shaft and it is not transferring the power to the chain...

My chain wont stop when i let off gas

Turn the T screw CCW until the chain stops turning at idle but not so far that the engine stalls when going to idle. If the screw has no effect on idle speed, investigate the small spring on the throttle arm of the carburetor for damage or disconnect. You may have to clean the trigger assembly of sawdust if nothing else helped. Be sure to make notes when disassembling the mechanism to be able to replace the parts correctly. Hope this helps!

Poulan 14" electric, model# PLN1514

Hi there, a couple of features come to mind that may be the cause of your problem.

Firstly, make sure that the saw is unplugged from the power supply.
  • The chain brake is active and wont allow sprocket movement and hence the chain. If necessary, pull the front guard (in front of the front handle) back until it clicks.
  • Electric saws generally have an additional motor-stop feature built into the trigger mechanism which is deactivated when the trigger is squeezed. So, in order to move the chain along the bar the trigger needs to be squeezed releasing the motor-stop. A tip - wear gloves when handling chains and move the chain towards the bar tip ie in the direction of the cutters - if the chain suddenly stops you wont remove several layers of skin in the process ! better still use a screwdriver against the back of one of the cutters and move it forwards - there should be some resistance and there should be no slack chain on the underside of the bar. Hope this helps.

Tillers rotate put in gear wont move was moving just stopped is their a belt or chain in gear box or transmisson

Hi pat,

Yes, there are two chains in the tranny. If the wheels spin freely but don't engage, the smaller chain is broken.

If the wheels don't move, in gear or not, the smaller chain is broken and wrapped around the gears.

It's a bit of a chore to get to....

Sears opener wont open or close more than 12 inches

You may have put the chain back on out of "sync" with in internal up and down stops. You may have to take the chain off the motor sprocket and run the motor to make sure it is stopped in the down position ( watch the rotation of the sprocket to determine up or down position) When the motor is stopped in the down position put the chain back on with the chain Carriage in the down position. Then you can fine tune the up and down stop positions with the adjustment screws on the side.
