Makita JR3000V stopped working


I would have checked the cord first. Cords are a high failure part because they always get bent and pulled and such. Some versions of the jr3000v had problems with field wires breaking right at the field terminal.

Many of these small saws have what is reffered to as an e start, the section that engages to the flywhell is seperate to the rope pulley, and is joined via a round coil spring, the idea is to soften out the compression and help to spin the engine over when cranking, one end of the spring fits into the outer flyheel engagment pinion, the other ends fits into a hole in the starter cord pulley, it does not fit into the main recoil spring, the securing screw for the assembly is a shoulder screw the idea is not to pinch the rewind mechanism when tightened, as this only screws into plastic it is very easy to over tighted and make the pulley post swell and stop the pulley rotating on the shaft, you may now need to leave the screw just a little slacker, the black plate under the starter is a conductor plate, this helps blow the cold air from the flywheel over the cylinder, this plate should always be there. When assembling the starter on the saw, keep pulling the rope as the cover goes on, this will ensure the pinion engages properly with the flywheel pawls.

In front of the handle on top of the saw is a hand guard. If in the course of cutting wood you hit it or pushed it forward, it will lock up the chain drive system. It should pull back towards the handle until it again clicks to release the chain. It's designed to lock up the chain drive and stop the chain when the saw kicks back.

What is h and l screws for we have been moving them around to try make the saw tick over as it keep cutting out


"H" is high speed and "L" is low speed. Turn both screws in full, then unscrew them one and a half turns each. Start the saw, you may have to adjust the trottle screw to keep it running.Then adjust the "L" screw a little, in or out, with the trottle screw until you are happy with it ticking over. then adjust the "H" screw to get it to run full. You need time and patience. Stephen.

Chain saw chain stopped moving


Was it running and shut down and was froze or when you went to restart it was frozen? Two things I have seen cause this other than a seized engine. One - chain bound up. Remove side cover and inspect chain mechanism. Two- the pull cord is bound up. Remove the pull cord cover and inspect.
