My Chainsaw's Engine Does Not Start: If the engine will start at all, you might have a bad starter switch. Check to see that all connections to the starter switch are secure. Is the power cord cut or broken? Check to make sure that you have a proper power line connection. If all checks out except for the switch, go ahead and replace it. You may want to consider whether you are using the appropriate fuel mixture.

My Chainsaw Smokes: If there is smoke coming from the chain, it could be an indication that there is not enough lubrication. Without the proper lubrication, the chain and chain bar can become seriously damaged. Make sure there is oil in the reservoir. When you start the saw, the automatic oil pump should lubricate the chain and bar. To see if this is a problem, hold the saw tip over a light-colored surface, hit the throttle and look for oil spatters on the chain bar. If you see no oil splatters, turn the saw off. Remove the chain guide bar and see if the oil discharge slots are clogged with sawdust. Clean out the sawdust and restart the saw to check lubrication again.


The Chain Skips or Jumps: If the chain skips or jumps during operation, check the engine drive sprocket to make sure it is not worn. If you have a worn sprocket it will not allow the chain to sit properly. Also, check to make sure the chain tension is set correctly. Setting the chain tension is a part of continuous operation. However, a dull or damaged chain may also cause the skipping and jumping.

My Chainsaw Isn't Cutting Properly: If the saw cuts at the wrong angle or shoots out a lot of sawdust, you probably need to sharpen the chain. A dull chain can be very dangerous. It can cause a kickback or chain jump that might break the chain and release pieces that could harm to the operator. If your chain is very shiny, you need to examine each cutter for damage. Use a file to sharpen the cutters.

The Chain Continues to Move or Stops: If the chain continues to move while the engine idles then you should check to make sure the idle is not set too high. If it stops while cutting, see if the brake is engaged.

My Chainsaw Loses Power: If the saw loses power while operating, check to make sure all electrical connections are secure. Any break in current may cause the saw to decrease in power, stall or shut down altogether.

How to Sharpen Your Chainsaw: Once you feel the chainsaw start to "grab" or stop with more frequency, shut the machine down and begin sharpening procedures:

1. Find a good, flat surface to place the chainsaw on (clamping the saw in a vice for stability would be optimal). 2. Make sure that you have a sharpening file that matches the size of the teeth on your chain. 3. Next, you'll want to make sure the chain is clean and clear of any debris so that nothing interferes with the file or sharpening device. You should have some kind of degreasing detergent at the ready so that you can wipe the chain down and during the cleaning and debris-removal process, make sure there are no damaged or broken teeth on the chain. 4. Before sharpening, take a piece of chalk, a pencil, a crayon, etc., and mark the tooth on the chain where you begin...so you know where to end. 5. At this point, you're ready to start sharpening. Find the groove between the teeth (the little notch in front of the tooth...your file should fit right into it) and give about 3-5 good swipes of your file (if you have a good, sharp file, this should be sufficient). Make sure you use the same amount of swipes for every notch/groove so that you keep everything even. Also, try to use the same angle with each swipe; this will contribute to a smoother performance by your chainsaw. 6. Repeat this process one at a time until you have come back around to the tooth where you began. 7. Then, after one side is done, turn the saw around and repeat the process. Again, remember to use the same amount of swipes with the file every time, and try to keep the same angle; uniformity/consistency within the teeth of the chain is very important for evenness and smoothness. As a general rule, after about 12-or-so times sharpening, you will want to bring the chain into a power tool repair shop or a place that does chainsaw repair, for some professional sharpening. The pros will be able to grind the chain back into shape and get the angles perfect.

I have a singer 600E touch and sew. I accidently took out the bobbin case and can't seem to get it back in. Can you please tell me how? Thanks


Open the slide plate, and remove the needle plate.The needle plate should be raised by a lever on the right hand side of the bed.Move it to the left, then raise the needle or take it out.It is also easier if you remove the sewing foot.Once you have the slide plate moved towards you you will see a black piece of metal in the front right corner of the bobbin area.Lift it up and slide it to the right.Position the bobbincase with the metal flap that locks the bobbin in towards you so when you lift it up it is on the end closest to you.Make sure the bobbin case is in the groove of the hook(the round thing that spins when you turn the handwheel)once you have the bobbin case in position you bring the black metal pieceover to the left and it will drop down to secure the bobbincase.Turn the hand wheel towards you the bobbincase should stay in place and the hook should turn around it.If it turns smoothly replace the needle plate,close the slide plate,screw the foot back on and replace the needle.You are done. www.sewvac.com

The power light is flashing and the printer makes a grinding noise and won't print. There was a paper jam that i had to pull out prior to this issue.


Hello According to HP, follow these steps for resolving the issue
Remove the rear access door, or the automatic two-sided printing accessory, and check for any paper jams or paper obstructions. Remove any obstructions. Check to make certain the carriage is on the right side of the printer. Rotate the rear paper guide rollers upwards five times, then downwards four times. If the rollers will not move, open the top cover and slide the carriage to the right (if it is not already there and if carriage can move). Try to roll the rollers again while pushing the clutch in. If the rollers do not move, continue on to the next step. Figure Location of the clutch c00040832.gif Replace the rear access door accessory, or the automatic two-sided printing accessory. Close the top cover. Plug the power cable back in. Turn the printer on, and replace the cartridges if possible. If the carriage moves, but there is still a grinding noise, there may be a paper feed issue. If the carriage will not move, then it is a carriage stall issue. After installing the cartridge, if the printer has a solid power light, perform a self-test on the printer. Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

My printer is making a weird noise and the power light just blinks


Turn off the Printer
open the Front access Door, Check if there is bits of paper or dirt on the ROD that moves the Cartrige/carriage.
Move the Carriage freely 5-6 times from left to right ( it should move smoothly )
Remove the Cartridges, Clean the contacts on the Cartridge ( golden Contacts)
Open the Rear Access door, Clean the Rollers with lint free cloth.
Close the Rear access door and front door
Power on the Printer. If the grinding noise continues, Unplug the power cable from back of printer ( while printer is on ) and while holding the # and 6 button, connect it back.
It should go thru alignment process and the grinding noise should be gone. If it doesnt, probably.. its time for new printer of HP again.
