Hi pietras 1,
My name is Dennis and I would like to help but what I think may be a problem, has to be confirmed visually, so I can only give you a guess where I'm going with this. The kill switch is a ground wire for the ignition so the magneto current will not jump the gap at the plug. If the ground wire is disconnected from the kill switch the ignition will not be grounded out then you request it to be grounded. Now if this wire that is disconnected is entangled with the rod that connects the throttle to the carburetor that could be the reasonthe machine is a run-away. Look at the linkages in the area ofthe kill switch and see if this makes sense.
Please rate the solution because I depend on you for your rating to help me learn toassist correctly.

I changed the chainsaw chain on my Blue Max chainsaw. The kick-back seems to be locked

Bob take the chain off again and remember to tighten the tensioning bar so that the chain is slightly loose. Enough to pull a few cm of the bottom just to stop it being tight.

Brand new Blue Max 20" chain saw wont start, has fresh gas/oil mixed @ 25:1

I also have a BlueMax 45cc chainsaw that I could not start right out of the box. I got lucky a couple of times after many (20 or 30 pulls) but normally I just gave up. Many others online seem to be having this problem with this chainsaw.

It turns out the solution for me was that the starting instructions in the manual are not really complete, there is another step that aids in starting: it needs some throttle. The chainsaw does not like to start with power at idle. After setting the switch to on and setting the choke, as the manual says, before attempting to start, squeeze the throttle while pressing the side button to lock it. For me, this allowed it to FINALLY start with only a few pulls. I learned this when I ran across this video:

Hope this helps anyone else who runs into this.

Chain not moving on a running chain saw.

Hi. Possibly the chain brake is engaged. It is the thing just in front of the forward handle. Try pulling it back, before starting the saw. It should click into place. This device is supposed to stop the chain in the event of a severe kick-back. If that's not it, you are probably looking at a new clutch or maybe sprocket.

My 18" Poulan Pro Wild

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.

If this is not the solution that you are looking for please re post because when we pick a question to answer FixYa takes it out of the questions. Thank you for choosing and good luck.
