The header says you have a Homelite saw and if this correct you can go to Homelite.com and look up parts or other information that you might need for your saw. There is also a contact us area. Good luck

    I went to their website and left a similar complaint. They told me to read the manual and then go to a service center. They need to rename that section of the company. It is not what I consider "support."
    Basically they said: Good luck with that!

Trouble securing homelite clutch cover


If it has a chain brake it might have gone off(released)when taken off or put down. It would be a circular spring or other device which stops the chain when released. Pull back on the handle while holding the cover and it will hold back allowing you to put it back on.

I just started up my new 16" Homelite and the engine starts, but the mechanism that powers the chainsaw isn't rotating... any suggestions?


The engine needs to be accelerated to make the chain turn. The chain should not be so tight on the bar that you can't turn it by hand. Make sure the chain brake is off by pulling back on the brake paddle which has a 'toggle' effect--it should snap over to the new position. If still having problems, it is time to return for warranty exchange or repair. Hope this helps!

I have a Homelite Chainsaw 45cc Power Stroke. Model No. UT10946D. The chain brake is always applied. Brake lever will not latch in the released position. I've disassembled it and do not see anything...


I have the same model (ut10946d) and used it for less than 2 tanks of gas when the chain froze. I noticed it was slowing down and it seemed like the chain brake was not disengaging and staying in the "unlocked" position.
I took the tool apart today and found that the band that rubs on the clutch to stop the chain was dragging on the clutch because it doesn't disengage all the way. The heat from the friction melted the plastic parts around the clutch housing and crankshaft. So now I have a chainsaw that I bought new, used for less than an hour, and is now junk due to poor design and/or product control.

I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER HOMELITE GAS POWERED TOOL AS LONG AS I LIVE. THEY ARE PURE JUNK!

My solution, call homelite and complain about it, maybe they'll stand behind their design flaws - but I doubt it.

The brake won't fully release. It clicks and falls into place but the brake is still on unless you hold the brake arm back.


you need to take the side cover off as if you were changeing the chain,there has to be sawdust or the like jamming things up in there and you wont know what until you expose the problem area, do that , and then come back to me if you cant work it out but that is where the trouble lies

Ryobi pcn3335 chainsaw chainbrake will not release fully


1. Is there a Homelite/Ryobi dealer/authorized repair facility near you? If yes I'd try them they may repair it.
2. Any major chainsaw seller/repairer may be able to repair it... there will be a fee.

I own a few chain saws without chain brakes. I also own and use good PPE.

Fix bar brake on homelite timberman 45


It's a design flaw in timberman chain saws. After some hours of use, they develop a bad habit of not releasing the clutch drum completely. And that takes precious power away from the saw. If it becomes too tight, the clutch drum may over heat and cause the plastic enclosure to warp or melt down. After messing with this brake for months, I ended up completely removing it. Replacing it was not an option for me - there was nothing to replace - it is not the brake band that's bad, but the mechanism in the brake handle of this saw that is flawed. Overall, this chainsaw is very cheaply built - Homelite used waaaay too much plastic in it!
