Question about Garden
The chain saw is a runaway. Hit the kill switch and nothing happens untill I hit the throtle, then it shutsdown. The saw runs at max rpm without holding the throtle. Please help.
Hi pietras 1,
My name is Dennis and I would like to help but what I think may be a problem, has to be confirmed visually, so I can only give you a guess where I'm going with this. The kill switch is a ground wire for the ignition so the magneto current will not jump the gap at the plug. If the ground wire is disconnected from the kill switch the ignition will not be grounded out then you request it to be grounded. Now if this wire that is disconnected is entangled with the rod that connects the throttle to the carburetor that could be the reasonthe machine is a run-away. Look at the linkages in the area ofthe kill switch and see if this makes sense.
Please rate the solution because I depend on you for your rating to help me learn toassist correctly.
