SOURCE: New GMC electric chainsaw runs until it try's to cut wood. Motor runs but chain dose not turn ? Turns if not on wood.!

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

Mt999 chainsaw. Brand new. Not cutting through wood although blade rotating. Just seems to be burning wood.


If it's all brand new, then sounds like you have the chain on backwards. The angled parts of the cutters should face forward while on the top of the bar.

In front of the handle on top of the saw is a hand guard. If in the course of cutting wood you hit it or pushed it forward, it will lock up the chain drive system. It should pull back towards the handle until it again clicks to release the chain. It's designed to lock up the chain drive and stop the chain when the saw kicks back.

Chainsaw is smoking excessively when in use


White smoke is usually associated with burning antifreeze in an automobile engine, but in this case, trying to cut wet wood might be suspect. The chain must be properly sharpened and the teeth cut toward you on the bottom run of chain. When the chain is properly adjusted, it should not droop from the lower edge of the bar, but no so tight that you can't turn it by hand. Forcing a poor cutting chain into the kerf will overheat the chain and cause it to become loose quickly. Hope this helps!

CHAIN SAW QUITS CUTTING AS IT HITS WOOD.


The make, model, and occationally the serial number help us solve your problem.

Does the engine quit running? (Carburator needs adjustment)
Or does it continue running and chain stops? (need clutch refaced or replaced.) (to aggressive a chain for the size of the engine)

I think you replaced parts unnecessarily. Maybe quicker and cheaper to visit your friendly neighborhood chainsaw shop. A good one can repair it even if they do not sell your brand.

Loss of power


Don't continue to try for high speed operation until the problem is rectified. Look for loss of chain oil or the chain is too tight. If it is equipped with a chain brake, make sure that it isn't dragging on the clutch rim. (It would be very hot or blue colored.) If no oil, remove the bar and chain--run the engine and watch for oil coming out of a port near the sprocket end. If it does so, clean the holes in the drive end of the bar, especially the small holes that connect to the chain track slot. Adjust the bar to tighten the chain enough that the chain doesn't begin to droop from the bar, yet turn freely by hand. If no oil comes out of the port, then the oil lines or the oil pump are/is faulty. Be sure to use bar oil only in the tank?
