Hi Peter,

I'm sure you've tried the the full range of motion with the Guard.

You've inspected the drive gear for obstructions and all the other external "Could Be's". So that leaves internal, either the link between the guard and the brake has jammed or something is interfering with the clutch.

If it's still under warranty, bring it in.
If you have never worked on a chain saw before, I'd advise getting it to a shop.

If you are comfortable taking the machine apart and confident you can get it back together, clear a work area that you don't mind getting oily. Pull the bar and chain. And start on the housing.

When you get the clutch exposed, the band around it is the brake.
Work the guard to see what the problem is.

If you can't get it to release, comment me back with a detailed description of what you found. We'll take it from there

Best regards,
Mike

My chainsaw starts and runs but the chain won't turn so it shuts itself off. What am I doing wrong?


Check the braking bar. You usually start the chainsaw with the brake in the 'on' as a safety feature. You have to release the brake before powering up the chain, otherwise you are fighting against the brake and the engine will shut down. Hope this helps.

Problem chain / break cover chainsaw


Hi, hold the cover in a vice where the bar nuts normally tighten up to, then pull the chainbrake lever back in the direction the handle bar would be. You will feel a click and the lever will stay back and the brake band will be released. Then refitted cover to the saw. Regards Phil.

Chain will not turn when on or off


Sounds like the chain brake may be engaged. You should have a lever that looks somewhat like a handguard on the top of the chainsaw, right in front of the handle you hold the saw with. It should "snap" when you disengage the chain brake by pulling the lever back towards you.

You can find replacement chainsaw parts at PartsBuggy.com.

I have a Homelite Chainsaw 45cc Power Stroke. Model No. UT10946D. The chain brake is always applied. Brake lever will not latch in the released position. I've disassembled it and do not see anything...


I have the same model (ut10946d) and used it for less than 2 tanks of gas when the chain froze. I noticed it was slowing down and it seemed like the chain brake was not disengaging and staying in the "unlocked" position.
I took the tool apart today and found that the band that rubs on the clutch to stop the chain was dragging on the clutch because it doesn't disengage all the way. The heat from the friction melted the plastic parts around the clutch housing and crankshaft. So now I have a chainsaw that I bought new, used for less than an hour, and is now junk due to poor design and/or product control.

I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER HOMELITE GAS POWERED TOOL AS LONG AS I LIVE. THEY ARE PURE JUNK!

My solution, call homelite and complain about it, maybe they'll stand behind their design flaws - but I doubt it.

Ran chainsaw with brake on and chainsaw will not start now


Hi

Too much fuel at the sparkplug.The fuel accumulated in the cilinder because of brake left.Put the button in off position,remove the sparkplug and dry it,pull the starter for a while until the fuel is out from the cilinder.Put the sparkplug and start the engine.
