Question about Homelite Consumer Products 9.0 Amp, 14 In. Chainsaw
Don't use my Homelite Ranger 16" that much and am confused on how the chain brake works.
With the brake pull TOWARD the handle the engine runs fine but the blade will not rotate unless I squeeze toward me. When I let go it stops.
When I have the brake pushed AWAY from me the blade does not turn as well.
I have taken the chain and bar off numerous times and believe all is reinstalled properly.
To run the saw.... do I push the brake away, or pull toward me.? I feel silly asking this question, but my ego will survive.
The chain brakebar has to be pulled backtowards the operator,in the case of the cnainbar lifting and coming back towards theuser the brake bar will come in contact with the forearm on front handle and inturn that will click the bar oer and stop the chain thats the easy bit---- the hard bit is why is yours not working correctly i would like to see you blow the chainbrake handle and all associated areas with compressed air

Some saws are different than others but you want the chain to be free when you pull the trigger. Most have to be pulled back towards the operator to release the brake. This is here to reduce the amount of injuries due to a kick back. It can be pretty bad if one of these saws hit you when the chain is spinning. But yeah if you pull it back that should release it. Hope this helps you out. If you feel that the solution has helped then please accept and rate. Thanks cj2176.
