Question about Echo 30.1CC Chainsaw With a 14 In.bar and Chain
The chain clutch won't release. Even when I am trying to start the saw the chain moves.
I have a cs3000 14 inch saw about 10 years old.
It just started doing this for no reason.
I did try to adjust the idle screw but when I turn it down enough to make the chain stop the engine stops. Thanks Comment posted on Apr 09, 2009 I have tried all the things you suggested but they didn't work. Where is the chain break and how should it look when in good shape? Thanks Two Comment posted on Apr 12, 2009 The adjustment of the idle screw has nothing to do with the chain moving even when the motor isn't running. When I pull the started rope the chain moves several inches even though the engine never fires. I can take the plug out to make it easier to crank and the chain moves with each pull. I think it has something to do with the chain brake. Is it adjustable on this model? If not how do I replace it and where do I get the parts to do so? I have a cs3000 14 inch saw sn.023513. Thanks Bigal
This is the breakdown of parts for your model,you can see how the brake is, but your problem sounds like the dogs inside the clutch are stuck and causing the chain to constantly engage the chain.
Open the clutch to look at it and see what is causing this.
The idle usually will not cause the clutch to engage, this is usually
a higher rev that engages the clutch.
