problem in the safety clutch area
ensure that the safety bar is fully back and engaged before pressing trigger
the safety bar is that handle at you fingers when you are holding the the saw handle and by moving , flicking your fingers forward it stops the chain action
if that is fully engaged , it will require servicing by any accredited chainsaw repair shop
Your problem would be in a safety shutdown switch.
some Ariens blowers have a two handed safety switch whitch is located on back of blower right lower side (inside of body)
You have to remove 4 transmission pan bolts to see it.
The other location is under the metal face plate between the handle bars.
Some of them have a third handel on right side of handle bars that has to be depressed to run auger .
some have a manual off /on fuel control, some have a safety bar that you hold while running and the blade is engaged. I f you have the bar at the handle end and you do not engage the blade, and this still happens, check the cable from the handle to the engine and see if when you assembled the unit that the cable has been run properly.Ever year I remove the handle for winter storage and fold the cable and handle on top of mower, and not disconnect cables. In Alaska we get snow in winter and mower does not work well, a little humor. good luck..
use 10# test line or heavier. use 3\8 oz lure or heavier. set magnetic control to "5". tighten small silver knob under the reel handle down until the spool will not turn when you push the thumb bar. loosen the same silver knob while you have the thumb bar pushed and adjust the knob tension so that the spool stops turning when the bait hits the ground. this is basic tuning for any baitcasting reel.
Sounds like your drag is too loose. Best way to get used to setting a baitcaster, in my opinion, is to put a 1/2 ounce weight on the end of the line and engage the spool. The line should drop to the ground freely, but not full speed - if too fast, the spool will continue to spin and you'll get that dreaded birdsnest. If it doesn't reach the ground, you need to loosen it more.
Once you have it set, keep that weight on and go practice, using the thumbing process Parorae noted in the previous answer.
They take some getting used to for sure!
The large black plastic bar sticking up is a kick back safety device. Pull it back toward the handle to make sure it has not been engaged. If it is engaged the chain will not move. If that is not the problem then the chain clutch is defective. I am assuming the chain is not too tight.
Should be a operater manual with car, if not, the left side of steering wheel is a small handle. On the end is a button. In the middle is a "resume" switch that is pussed with your thumb. While driving push the end button, the car should engage and power without your foot on the peddle. To go faster push the middle switch with your thumb toward steering wheel and that will increase the speed. When you put on the brake the cruise control should dis-engage. Need to practice with this on a safe road. You may need to go at least 40mph for it to operate. When the cruise is engaged a dash light should come on saying "cruise" - Good luck
The chain brake is engaged when the brake handle is moved forward.....to ensure it is actually the chain brake...with the clutch cover off and in your hand, pull the chain brake back...if it will not move, attempt to move it forward to see if it was not engaged...if it moves forward, it is now engaged...pull back to disengage it...a lot of times the problem is not the brake, but rather the bar adjuster....if the brake is not the problem,...loosen the bar adjuster and reassemble the unit...once assembled, then adjust the bar as per the user manual.
