Question about Ryobi 18-inch Electric Chainsaw Chain Saws
Hello, I have a Ryobi chainsaw PCN 4545. The brake appears to have been binding and the resulting over heating has melted the internal casing. Is this repairable and is this a common fault. Thanks for any help/advice.
Mine did the same - dangerous and a waste of money ..avoid like the plague

Sawdust/dirt build-up helps cause this situation. Usually, the band is deformed so that it drags. The melted case parts may or may not need replacement, but will likely need trimming. The band usually does as it is difficult to remove the small bends in it. After repair, make sure the chain turns freely by hand. Set and reset the brake several times to make sure it works correctly. The clutch outer drum rarely deforms when this happens. Hope this helps!

Testimonial: "Thanks for the advice. The casing has melted and is beyond economic repair dispite very limited use. I would advise anyone thinking of bying one of these chainsaws to steer well clear of them as this is a common fault. Buy a McCullock chainsaw."
