The plastic safety kick back may be engaged. 1) unplug the saw. 2) push the kick back safety ahead then pull it back ( it is the guard in front of the handle)
Now if your electric motor is turning, but the chain sproket is not, it may well be the clutch. Tap it with a small hammer, make sure it is free and not hanging up.

How do I put the housing back on so the chain brake is operational after adjusting chain


You could name the model. If you didn't break anything, and still have a brake band, just release the brake mount the bar, put the chain over the drive sprocket then the bar, adjust the tensioner so its tang can engage the hole in the bar when the clutch cover goes on. The rest should be obvious.
If there are problems with the mechanicals of the brake, you need to fix them first or have them fixed.

I have an electric RCS1835. The motor seems to have burnt out, lots of acrid smoke, and loss of power. What needs replacing ?


It may need to be cleaned in side the chain area which may be making it ******* the saw. It could be brushes in the motor if its DC motor which I'm sure it is.

I have a chain saw 55 husqvarna and while the motor turn he stop suddenly often of the time when I put the brake and the motor is truning slowly he stop


Check to make sure the brake binder is not engaged...which is the same as saying: check and make sure the kickback brake handle is fully cocked. The handle should be oriented rearward towards the forward hand grip. If it is forward, pull it back stongly until it lockes in place. (Hint: also make sure the binder is released/brake cocked always before attempting to remove the brake assembly from the saw drive engine subassembly.)

There is a number of ways to re load the brake, you can either remove the clutch and sprocket, the brake will then go back onto the saw enabling you to use the hand guard on the saw to load the brake ( to remove the clutch, there are two cut a ways in the clutch centre designed to enter a flat screw driver into, then strike with a suitable hammer to remove, it is a left hand thread ) or you can remove the hand guard from the saw and use this as a tool to re load the brake, or you can clamp the cover in a vice ( be carefull not to damage the cover ) then use a strudy pair of pliers or grips in the three legged loading mechanism and turn it to load the brake.

Chain brake jammed on Echo CS400 chainsaw


You will need to release the brake by applying a very heavy screwdriver to the + shaped part of the brake coupling. Check the action of the brake handle and duplicate it at the the +. Hope this helps!

Just got MCC4516F chainsaw.Used it for 30 mins. Stopped working. Chain brake does not engage or release. Chain does not move. Motor runs but will not engage to make blade move. Seems like chain brake...


You have obviously jammed or broken the chain on the inside of the motor. Take it to be repaired, or try reparing yourself by opening up the engine casing yourself.

Chain brake problem


http://www.echo-usa.com/pdf/documentation/CS3000T1T1E_081303.pdf

This is the breakdown of parts for your model,you can see how the brake is, but your problem sounds like the dogs inside the clutch are stuck and causing the chain to constantly engage the chain.

Open the clutch to look at it and see what is causing this.

The idle usually will not cause the clutch to engage, this is usually
a higher rev that engages the clutch.
