Hello. If it is tripping the breaker you will have to use a shorter extension cord, or a heavier extension cord. A brief electrical note - most residential circuits are 15 amps. There fore, go to the hardware store and get a 15 amp or even a 20 amp extension cord. This will solve your problem as long as you don't have lots of other appliances drawing on the circuit you are using. A blow dryer for instance, uses a lot of amperage, as does a microwave. Try to use a circuit that is dedicated to your chain saw for the length of time you are using it.

Circuit breaker trips out


What is the rating of the breaker? Is this enough to run the saw? If this is ok, has the motor become damaged or has the blade got dirt or wood dust slowing it down?

Breaker trips after bout 5 minutes


Breakers trip because of heat.
When heat from wire exceeds breaker rating, it trips.
Something is causing heat on the wire, wire is too small for the amp draw, there is short circuit, or breaker is bad.
Replace breaker and/or test wire.

Put amp-meter on wire and read amp draw through wire.
Amps cause heat. That's why high voltage lines from power station are high-volt-low-amp so there is no heat loss with long distance transmission, until transformer at home converts electricity to lower volts and high working amps with enough power to run electrical devices.
Same is true for AC and DC circuits.
If amp reading on wire exceeds rating on breaker for length of time, then breaker will trip.
The fact that the breaker lets current (amps) to flow for a period of time before tripping is because the breaker is probably rated for slow-acting, or it takes a while for amp draw to heat the wire.

Following image shows amp-meter that clips over wire to get amp reading.

Trips breaker


You could have a dirty condenser coil or the fan motor isn't running at the proper speed to slow, weak or bad breaker, breaker to small causing to much voltage drop, loose plug in connection at wall outlet.

I need to replace the power cord on the poulan es300 and the case does not come apart very easily


There is 1 other 300S model , do not it is significantly different.

I recommend you open the attached IPL (300S-14) and use it as a disassembly/reassembly guide. I think the "General Assembly" print has the detail you need. If it were my project I might snap some photos as things progress just to refresh my memory when putting it all back together.

All saws can be found here (Alpha Numeric order; yours - right column about halfway down):

After running any eletrical equipment for +- half an hour ie fire or power tool,in the house I am renovating the main incommer switch continually trips,but no other circuit breakers do,please can you give...


The main breaker MAY be defective.

MORE likely is that certain main bus electrical connections within the panel are loose and overheating. This heat can trip the main breaker. Once the heating has occured at a connection, USUALLY the plating of the connection is burned and the whole thing needs replacing.

There is usually evidence of overheating such as discoloration.

IF THIS HEATING HAS OCCURED have the repair done immediately as it is a major fire hazard.

Need an owner manual for mcculloch eager ****** 300s-16 electric chain saw. Already contacted mcculloch and their parent company and the manual is not available from them


You would pay the manual about the price of new saw. These are made in china and usually motor or the switch blows. Check that the voltage pass thru the switch and if so and it dont work, throw it away.
