Remington 50 torpedo heater spits and sputers and then shuts down
I have a Reminton 50 torpedo heater and have used this unit in the last month for about five hours and now when I go to start it the fan starts but the ignition kicks on and off for about five to six times then it shuts off. It will not continue to operate.

I would guess that your motor overheated and is now on its way out. The extension cords might have contributed to the problem, not sure though. There would have been some drop in current for the 100' but the over heating is probably due to usage that was just too much for this light weight saw. You might be able to find a new motor.
Are you aware Remington(Power) is no longer in production? Eventually a part will be needed that is not available outside of eBay.
Your saw may be repairable, start a parts search here (make note of all part numbers): Remington.com http://shoppingcart.msservicecompany.com/Default.aspx • Type "YourModelNumber" into the "Search for your unit by Model:" window, then click search. • Click the “YourModelNumber” - Remington Electric Chain Saw "View Model" link. • Click “View Owners Manual” or "View Illustrated Parts Diagram" link. • Type "YourPartNumber" into the “Search for your parts by Part #:” window, then click search. If parts above are "NLA" or "Back Ordered" try them here: Master Distributors http://www.masterparts.net/remingtonelectricchainsaw.html
If parts are available but the cost approaches 50% the cost of a name brand replacement weigh your options please.
We rarely get questions about McCulloch or Poulan, and Wen made a quality product in the past, they are again in production. I cannot vouch for the quality today and they may go the way of Remington, Again your decision. Good Luck.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck. Lou Thank You for using FixYa.
Try to return it. RemingtonPower is no longer in production, eBay is rapidly becoming the sole source for replacement parts. The number you provide does not cross. I found 3 pole saws. Part numbers (pn) 111409-01 (not your saw no brushes), pn 104317 and 106821. The latter 2 use stator assembly pn 113614-01; NLA at RemintonPower and not listed at MasterParts. An Internet search for Reminton 113614-01 returns only pdf files. Sorry. Lou Odds are good Home Depot knew it was out of production when they sold it to you.
EL-8 will not cross. EL-7 is 10089-## (likely field and brushes failure, about $50 & shipping) there are motor parts available for that one, but they may not be interchangeable with your saw.
IMO I am not sure it makes sense to spend money on yours; sooner or later you will need something NLA. Post back with a different model number and I will gladly assist. I am going to close this, if you want to continue with my help just do as you last did.
Remington has ceased production. Parts availability is limited to what is on hand. This is last site I have for anything Remington is here: Remington.com http://www.desaparts.com/index.htm Enter your model number in the “Search for your unit by Model” window. If done successfully you can find both an Owners Manual and IPL. I recommend you save a copy of both. Please remember I'm only the messenger, not the guy that that closed the factory, and we are not affiliated in any way. HTH Lou Your money might be better spent on a name brand replacement saw. Someone that will be here 5 years from today.
