Question about Homelite Consumer Products 9.0 Amp, 14 In. Chainsaw
I have a Homelite UT10926 16" chainsaw. The motor runs but the chain doesn't move on the bar. The chain is not too tight. I took the bar and chain off and the axle the chain runs on will not turn - it appears seized. I couldn't even turn it with pliers. I was using the chainsaw and all was working fine. I stopped to refuel and add barchain oil. When I went to restart the problem occurred out of the blue. Any thoughts?
One solution you should all be aware of, especially with electric chainsaws is the automatic oiler. The oil is pushed into a hole in the rear of the bar where the chain picks up the oil and carries it around the bar lubricating the chain. Sawdust can accumulate in the oil hole till you can't get oil in it anymore. When the chain starts to get dry it gets hotter and hotter and starts burning up what lubrication is left on the chain. As this happens the chain gets tighter and tighter because it no longer flexes like it did when it was lubricated and can actually shrink and get so tight it locks up the chain. Loosen your bar and the chain, take the bar off and clean out the oil holes. Run it until the chain gets re-lubed then re-tighten the chain back to optimal tention.
