Do you know if your saw has a safety device called a chain brake? If it does you move the lever just in front of the front hand grip towards the back of the saw to release it.

Chain won't move after chain replacement


Had this happen to mine when I was limbing stuff that was too small. I know better. There is probably a burr on one or more of the guide portion of the links where they run in the bar. This causes that link to be tight in the bar at this point. The chain probably hit something on the body of the saw when it flew off. Take the bar off the saw and run the chain through the groove in the bar. If you have any links with nicks, they will bind, causing the chain to stick and not run freely. Once you've identified the problem links you can remove the nicks using 120 grit paper backed up with a flat piece of steel so you only remove the high spots.

If you have a good spark, and there is fuel at the plug, the only things to stop it fireing up are a sheared flywheel key knocking the timeing out, or the engine has low compression due to wear or damaged piston and ring.

I can't unlock the blade.


Do you mean the chain won't move, or you can't get the blade off? The chain brake must be off to allow the chain to move. The chain brake handle has a housing that engages a gear attached to the chain brake inside the cover where the blade is attached. The brake must be off to remove the cover (usually held on by two nuts). The blade tension screw should be loosened to allow the blade to be removed, then retightened when replacing the blade. Tightening it pushes the blade out from the saw, so if it is tight, you won't be able to remove the blade. Hope this helps.

Sounds like your chain is to tight.Take the cover that is at right side of the saw motor off and loosen the two nuts a bit and look for a tension screw behind the bar and back it off,if the bar won't move loosen the two nuts that hold the bar on the saw.With the saw siting like you use it pull down on chain and get about 1/8 of an inch between the bar and chain.(use gloves)If the bar is blue by the chain groove You will need a new bar.Blue means the bar has over heated and lost its temper.The blue metal is brittle in other words.You should all so check the drive sprocket for wear.

Release the chain tension adjuster and push the bar inward to make sure it moves. This is an auto-set tension adjustment and should set itself so that the chain can be be moved by hand. The chain oil on the bar may have gelled enough to prevent chain movement. A spray of WD-40 around the chain perrimeter would probably loosen the chain as well. Hope this helps!

Saw is running, but chain is not moving


If you rev the engine and the chain does not spin, either the chain is jammed, or is adjusted to tightly on the bar, or the centrifugal clutch is malfunctioning. With the engine off and leather gloves on, see if the chain will move on the bar, you should be able to move the chain 4 or 5 inches. If you can spin it, the clutch is probably bad. If its stuck, take the housing off over the clutch and make sure the chain is seated on the sprocket and not jammed to the side. Inspect the chain on the bar, there should some slight play in the chain tension. Look for any links that dont flex. This happens to be cause I overtighten the chain to the bar.
