Question about Black & Decker Garden
My balck and decker GK430 chainsaw has a problem. The elecrtric motor whirrs up fine, but when you try to cut the chain moves for a short time then stops cutting. The motor is whirring as though it would cut if the chain was moving. What is the problem? Does anyone know the most likely part that will need replacing?
Remove the bar and chain--check the sprocket and shaft for any mechanical damage. Try to turn the sprocket by hand in a CCW direction, does the shaft move with it? Does it seem to turn the motor? If the sprocket and shaft seem ok, then you may have a damaged gear (likely plastic) within the gearbox. Hope this helps!
