Used a new makita electric chainsaw, cut 5 pieces and stopped

Today it was new and unused and it cut only 5 pieces and no more. I pressed lock-off button & switch trigger and it would not operate.

I have changed the 13A fuse to no avail.

I have a makita electric chainsaw rated at 1800w , do i need a special extension lead ?

I would say not
a normal 10 amp lead should be good enough
what you need is an extension box that has an inbuilt ELB in case you cut the lead or from a power point that has a ELB in the circuit breaker

Husqvarna Chainsaw Chain stopped turning

Have you take the chain brake off..? This is a band which grips the clutch drum and must be disengaged before use.

Check chain tension, this shouldn't be too tight.

Did you also put chain oil in the oil tank.?

McCulloch ES335 electric chainsaw whilst cutting a fallen tree into pieces The saw made a load click like sound when restarted and them the engine run but no movement on the chain. I took off the cover and...

In front of the handle on top of the saw is a hand guard. If in the course of cutting wood you hit it or pushed it forward, it will lock up the chain drive system. It should pull back towards the handle until it again clicks to release the chain. It's designed to lock up the chain drive and stop the chain when the saw kicks back.

How do I adjust the laser on my Makita LS1214fl miter saw.

Make a long cut on a piece of plywood or other scrap and without moving anything (use clamps), adjust the laser to fall on the cut. Hope this helps!

I have a dolmar ps 52 chainsaw keeps cutting out when warm any ideas thanks

Try a new spark plug first. The ignition system may be failing with heat. Try cleaning the engine with compressed air to get rid of accumulated sawdust. Check for muffler for plugging. Make sure the engine 4-strokes at full throttle, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Adjust the H needle somewhat to achieve this. Hope this helps

All of a sudden it will not run.

Please try to rotate the motor shaft a few degrees (UNPLUGGED) then try a different outlet without an extension cord just to eliminate those possibilities.
Makita 5012B IPL
I see 4 items that could cause this and a possible 5th that is unidentified. Not knowing your level of expertise I suggest if the different outlet does not work you contact Makita for an authorizes repair center near you.

Alternately you might copy the IPL and try a local electric repair service.

If you have more questions you can reply below and I will get back to you. HTH

Non-oiling chainsaw

go to an automotive store and get a quart of oil flush. It is usually used to flush out a car engine to remove sludge.

Put some in it, and let it sit for a bit. That will loosen it up. then try running the saw to see if the flush fluid ends up on the chain.

If it does, I would run it for a bit to let the flush run through the workings.

After that you can dump the rest into an empty oil container and recycle as you would your car oil.

Repeat if necessary.

If this does not free it up, manual disassembly and repair of the oiler mechinism may be required.

My electric chain saw makita 5014 is not cutting seems to burn the wood. Can it need sharpening or a new chain. I am a mere woman and don't know too much.:o)

A dull chain can cause this so can installing it backwards. Find a local chainsaw seller/mechanic about 5 - 10$ to sharpen. Ask for their help to relinstall it. Stihl is the best dealer in my area.

Makita 5012B chain cannot be tightened

some chainsaws have different knotches where the bar locks onto the saw. loosen the nuts and see if you can move the bar.
