Is there a safety switch feature on my chainsaw? It just stopped working all of sudden. It wasn't binding or struggling or anything. So I'm not sure why.

    Just to be thorough about this, it's not that the chain isn't moving, it won't make a sound at all.

SOURCE: Chainsaw is new but chain

All machines today will have a chainbrake, this is normally a band that comes around the clutch drum to stop the chain in the event of a kick back, to unlock the brake, pull the hand guard fully back to the top handle until you hear the click of the brake loading, there will be an amount of force required to pull the guard back.

When engine is running the clutch will not turn. What could the problem be?


Sounds silly but have to activated the chainbrake by accident.? The black handguard by the top handle is the chainbrake.! Pull it back to de-activate the safety chain brake. It works by activating a brake band around the clutch drum, stopping the drive but the engine still runs, however if you try and rev it the engine will struggle under load because the clutch is trying to drive a drum which is being held by the brake.

Netural safety switch


Daewoo cars have track record for dependability in addition to solid construction. The most important part of a car's design is the safety features. Circumvent excessive risk while motoring by insuring that your car has the safety gear that you want. A vehicle's Neutral Safety Switch is located on your clutch in the case that it's a manual transmission, and on the shifter in an automatic. A broken Neutral Safety Switch can cause your vehicle to suddenly start in gear, causing vehicle damage or personal injury.

If you don't have the Neutral Safety Switch, your vehicle will fail to work. The Neutral Safety Switch is typically situated below the clutch of trucks which have a stick-shift transmission. The primary function of a Neutral Safety Switch is to stop your truck from starting when in gear. The car's Neutral Safety Switch acts as a safety feature, keeping you from starting the engine if the car is in gear. The Neutral Safety Switch is an electronic part which is essential while starting your car.Here's a link to what it look's like.

I have a 90 montero and the brake lights and turn signals stopped working and I have replaced the fuses and can't figure it out.


my 91 Montero did the same thing, I finally traced it to a bad rocker switch for hazard lights. The switch was broken and it messed up brakes and turn signals. Check your switches that they work and rock properly. My hazard switch was binding turning on and off causing a short. Got a new hazard switch that worked freely and suddenly everything worked right. The problem drove me crazy, and I did replace the turn signal lever assembly first, brake switch, turn signal relay. I found dash switches on eBay.

Is the band brake nessesary or can i take it off and use the chainsaw


It's totally necessary, stop asking if you can remove it. If you think you can make a better chainsaw than STIHL, then I think you should try, otherwise, don't change anything, you're not an engineer and if you're thinking about removing the most important safety feature of any saw in existence, then maybe you shouldn't be allowed to play with one at all.

The drivers door ,of course, gets worked the most. the binding is from the window regulator wearing out. they can't be fixed, only replaced. the other doors are usually the motors, from non use. As you indicated the light dims, so you are getting power to the motor, but it is locked and possibly the regulator is locked up. When the motors drags or lock, you can sometimes smack the door and get them to work again as your try to roll them up or down. also try to assist the window down as you activate it. There is only one circuit breaker for the windows.

Wheel is stiff. Safety feature keeps stopping


Sounds like their is a bind, you will have to have your local dealer inspect it. Either the machine needs a full oiling or thread has wrapped around something inside.

hope that helps,
