Question about Garden
I have a Homelite 45cc chainsaw, model ut10942a , made August 2003. Is it possible to adjust the chain break. The only way it will totally release is if I pull the chain break release bar back toward the hand grip & hold it there. Right now I have it wired to the hand grip but I know that is not a safe proceedure but it works for now. Can you help. Thanks.
Hate to say this,but,there is no way to adjust the tension on the brake band.either the spring is weak or the brake band is broken.either can be changed but it's not easy.spring is under a lot of tension and can fly out when taking it apart or installing,you can get the entire cover as a unit if so desired...hope this helps,let me know

I have the same saw and the same thing just happened with it.
I removed the chain brake handle and found that a flat spring steel part had one end broke off.
Its not the brake band but another spring.
I found the part # online (PS04955) but still have to find one and see where the broken missing end fits in the brake.Hope this helps.If you like I could send a parts list showing the part.
