Mccullough chain saw pm610 chain slips -- maybe clutch issue

The engine runs fine, but the blade will not run fast to cut wood. It worked fine today, and then after letting it set for 30 minutes the engine started up fine, but when the trigger is pulled, the chain saw blade just moves slow. I removed the cover, cleaned and replaced. The blade is not too tight and can be moved by hand.

    The chain break is not jammed. The chain rotates freely when the engine is off. How do I check the clutch?? Is there a manual on line to download for this?
    Thanks,

    I tried it again this morning, same results. Chain moves freely, and break turns on/off just fine. I did notice a lot of oil leaking. Any other suggestions,

    Thanks,

    You asked: have you greased your clutch bearing ever I will ask the owner, as the chainsaw is not mine, just borrowed. Any diagrams or manuals that I can download on line to find the clutch???

    I have a Montgomery Ward chainsaw. The chain will slow to a stop while cutting but the engine runns at full throttle.



    Is there a remedy for this?

Have you greased your clutch bearing ever.some times they get dirty and tighten up after running a while.pull your clutch off and clean and grease bearing with a little alex grease,and I mean just a few drops.not meant to have a lot of it,too much will burn the crank shaft and you will have more problems then you started with

I just had this problem. It is possible that your chain drive teeth have jumped off the drive sprocket. There is a guide for the chain to follow and is decievingly difficult to verify that the teeth are in the drive sprocket. Turn the saw upside down, and look at the clutch. Check the chain to see if the chain is actually on the sprocket and not beside it. It looks right, but it's not.

Hope the chain brake isn't jammed on.
does the chain rotate easy bty hand when engine is off. If not check bar ,chain. and sprocket condition,may be jamming up or don't oiling.
610 clutches are on a taper so can slip or break if over tightened.

Truck start up run great couple minutes then shut off let set few minutes then crank up run great 30 second shuts down like you cut key off let set few minutes crank right back run fine then dose same


Sounds like it is running out of fuel. Maybe a bad fuel pump, or clogged filter. If it is carbureted, a stuck float valve or clogged float valve might be the problem.

Telling us year, make and model would allow us to help you more.

New blade tares threw the wood. its hard to push the wood threw the blade


Are you using a new band saw blade? Are you running on a correct speed. I suggest to change the blade. I got 201 Carbon blade from http://sawblade.com/ . Also, make sure you're in right speed so that the blade will make the cut. Don't feed it so hard, let the blade do the work.

I looked it up and it sounds like your unit is defective. It should run for 5, 10, 15, or 30 minutes. There are no "seconds" options. The timer chip/module may be defective.

I'm a wife with a do-it-yourself knack. I recently purchased a Ryobi 10 in. BTS211 table saw. I find the manual complicated as far as how to actually use the device. Can you recommend where I can get...


I am a retired contractor.
I have a shop with a 10" table saw.
And I have opinions about safe operation.

For safety, turn saw off when making adjustments.

1) Raise blade:
There is a handle you turn to raise the blade.
If you are cutting 1/2" plywood, then set your blade at 3/4" or a bit more.
Keep blade low and away from hands.
Keep hands high and away from blade.

For 1-1/2" thick 2x4, I usually set the saw at 1" and run the board through, and then flip the board over and run it through again, taking 2 passes to make really thick cuts.

7c68409.jpg

2) Blade angle
There is a second handle you turn to set blade at an angle up to 45 degrees
Angle cannot be set if saw blade is fully raised >> lower blade to half way or less and experiment.
Angle cuts are difficult if wood is not perfectly flat and square, or too long or too short (boy is that helpful ... but cutting angles takes some experimentation)

3) Table Guide
You stand behind power saw to operate
The saw table guide is on left side of blade and clamps across the table
The guide markings show inches >>> these are usually approximate
To set guide for accuracy, measure distance from blade to saw guide, and then clamp guide down.

4) Push sticks push sticks push sticks and other safety stuff
Let me emphasize safety first last and always
A table saw will chop your fingers off in a blink
On the plus side, I hear it doesn't hurt. But OMG.
There is a very strong human instinct to reach in with your hand when working on stuff
Train your mind >> if the saw is running, do not lean or reach into the saw
If a board is stuck >>> turn off the saw and wait for full stop
If you wear baggy clothes of a loose shirt, the saw will grab you and pull you in too fast for you to react
Keep your clothes tight and your arms bare

Always use push sticks or push boards::
673c22b.jpg
Notice the saw blade is set low
Two push sticks are used to assist when cutting short board > one stick holds down the board ahead of blade, the other stick is pushing board through saw.
Keep your hands away from the blade no matter what.
The person stands behind and to the side of the board being cut.
The cut wood is supported by a catch table (in this case there are rollers)

Where to stand
Obviously you stand behind the saw to cut wood, and sometimes with long pieces, you can move in front and pull them through, and sometimes with large plywood you stand kinda back and to the side.

Why not stand directly behind a saw? Because saws throw stuff back.
When 'ripping' a board lengthwise as shown in photo above, if the saw catches the board just right, it will throw it backwards like a spear.

If a board 'binds' the saw causing saw blade to stop, then turn off saw, back up the board, and cut again.

Crosscut guide
The saw comes with a T-shaped guide that fits into a groove.
This is a 'push stick' >>> you use it to cross cut a board, and it lets you stand to the side of the saw blade so things wont flip back on you
When using the cross cut guide, remove the table guide that clamps across the saw, or push the table guide WAY back so pieces don't get caught in a bind and the blade flips up the piece and hits you in the face
Remember, the saw throws everything backwards

The saw is strong and fast, and you are best when traveling slow and without rush around your strong friend.

My dad's old craftman table saw will not cut straight. I put a new carbide tipped blade in to try to solve the problem with no luck. the wood is cut narrower in the center and it won't stay tight against...


Your problem could be one or more of... 1- Check to see that the motor mounts are secure and the motor is not moving around. 2- Check the shaft that holds the blade for the same problem if the blade is not directly mounted to the motor. If there is any "give" in the above two ways the blade could be held in place, corrections must be made to secure the blade so that it does not "wander" during the cutting procedure. 3- Be sure the fence you are using to guide your wood is set as parallel as possible to the blade so it does not cause the wood to follow another line once the wood being cut goes beyond the cutting blade. There is most likely an alignment procedure you can run through.

Blade does not make straight cut and turns.


it may be the blade is worn out and has lost its edge on one side or it could be its too lose, on the other hand if your pushing the wood through to fast not letting the blade cut it first it wont cut straight

Homelite 4618c runs fast when it should idle.


Hi Crackdpot,

If it's still under warranty, anything you do to it will void it. My best advice is let them handle it. They most likely will have seen the problem before and know exactly what to do about it.

Bottom line: It's their headache, let them handle it.

BTW, I have several Homelight machines. Despite their minor problems, they continue to serve me well.

Best regards,

Mike

Blade misalignment


The 1590, like several Bosch jigsaws, has a selector switch to choose the type of cutting action. You have to choose the appropriate cutting action, either straight or oscillating, to accommodate the material you cut and the blade you cut with. For instance, if using a very slender blade for clean curved cuts in wood, a slight oscillating motion ( setting II or III) reduces friction on the blade. 
If you choose the straight cutting action you get maximum accuracy, but drastically increase the friction because the blade is held firmly to the roller bearing.  A slender blade can handle that for brief periods, (say... less than thirty seconds) in soft, thin wood with a straight cut. In hard woods or engineered wood products ( plywood, MDF etc.) the thin blade will heat up and bend. 
You can reduce friction by choosing an oscillating cutting motion, or you can use a larger, sturdier blade. The "Aggressor" blades do not cut as smoothly as the "clean" blades, but they cut faster and are stronger. To cut thick wood ( 4x4 ) or a long cut in engineered material, that is the blade I use. Select number III or number II for 'type-of-cut' and use a bigger blade. See if that stops the "bucking."
Good luck!
