The rope may be bound up in the recoil pulley assembly. If the starter rope is at the handle, you should have about 6-7 feet of rope on the recoil pulley.
It should be about a #3.5 size rope. If it has a clutch starter, it may be froze up. You will not know until you can get in there to look at it. If you feel you can not handle find a professional shop.

I have a Makita Miter Saw LS1016 cannot get it to lift up, seems to be in lock position. How do I unlock? There is a little pull at pivot point, but doesn't pull out.

If you're talking about the lock that holds it in the lowered postion for moving or transporting the unit, it requires a slight downward pressure before the pin will move. Press down, and then pull the pin. If this isn't lock you're talking about, please provide more details; also, if this is the lock, and it still won't move, it could have gotten bent. If new, contact the manufacturer, if not new, then you might just have to apply more pressure to move it from the detent position.

My Makita circular power saw works then stops working, then starts again. Why is this happening?

Things to check: With the saw running, safely grab the cord by the boot and pull and twist it around. This is where a break frequently occurs inside the cord and when the saw is held in certain positions the break will either open or close. If the cord's OK, unplug the saw and remove the brush caps and check the brushes. If the brushes are less than 1/4" long or the springs are burnt or broke they won't make good contact with the armature. If the cord & brushes are OK your next recourse is to replace the switch (Makita PN 651172-0).

How do i start the saw

Hello. The steps are quite easy once you've done it a few times. When starting: pull the choke switch on, press the throttle lock as you squeeze the trigger (this locks the throttle into a half-on position), push in the decompression valve, and pull the cord. I recommend placing the unit on the ground and stepping in the trigger-guard area to stabilize it. Here's a link to the instruction manual for you reference - it shows the sequence with diagrams on pg 18 & 19. Hope this helps, if it does, please rate a four-thumbs up. Thank You.

Need new power cord for Makita sander. Looks very much like the Makita 9924DB. Where can I get this part? Live in Canada

If you want the Makita cord for this tool it's part number 664026-2. It can be ordered through several online sites like for about $22 +shipping. You can also use any 18-2 power cord (18 guage-2 leads) with the molded plug end on it, available at most repair shops and some retailers for about $10. Attaching it to the switch is easy, just mirror the old cord as far as how long each lead should be and how much wire to strip off.

Unable to lift the saw blade Makita Miter Saw

Look at the pivot point on the rear of the miter saw for the push/pull locking pin. The pin is there so you can lock the saw in the down position for easier carrying. To unlock the saw, simply pull the locking pin out (Makita calls this the "stopper pin"). Then you can use the saw and easily raise and lower it for cutting.

As you might find it helpful to have, I have included a link from the Makita web site for a free copy of the owners manual that you can print or save for future use and reference. It has some handy info on use and care of your saw.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Ryobi 40cc CHAINSAW .... pulled out cord too far

It is usually just jammed, when you go out too far. Ifyou take the recoil starter off or loose , sometimes it goes back in on it own. If not ,carefully disassemble it and see if the recoil spring is broken.

Can't separate case to replace broken switch

Have you removed the front housing? It has 4 screws that go into the handle halves and must be removed. As far as internal clips there are none. If you removed the front sometimes the handles stick together and you have to hold each piece and gently pull apart. Hope this helps
