Question about Garden
The saw starts up all right, but when throttle trigger and lock-out are pulled, the chain just doesn't move. The saw is about a month old and has only been used sparingly.
Most saws have a safety or anti kickback brake. Yours might have tripped. There is a guard in front of where your left hand holds the saw. With the saw NOT running, pull the guard HARD towards the back of the saw. It should move a bit ant you may hear a click. The chain should now move. If the chain moves easily when the saw is not running, but doesn't move when you rev the saw up, the clutch is broken.
