Question about Garden
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

SOURCE: Need replacement Chain oil pump
Go to the Homelite web site, which will get you to HCPI Electronics Parts catalog. You will need the model number. The parts are illustrated as a break-away drawing for various portions of the saw. Hope this helps.
