WEN 6014: Motor is running, but chain doesn't move. Chain sprocket seems fine, cogs are only slightly worn, sprocket fits perfectly, no wear. Is there an internal clutch or connector? Motor worn out?

There is a clutch behind the metal housing where the chain sprocket at the engine end attaches to the chain . There are wear parts with springs on them that have to be changed. ChainSaw Shed Chain Saw Parts for Wen Wagner Brand Chain Saws Chains Bars... You can get parts here.

Brand new, seems like everything assembled fine. Won't start. Right gas mix, right chain saw oil. No start. Makita dcs 400.

remove the chain and bar and try to start without it, if it start then chain was too tight. also you may need to do a small adjustment to carburator. check spark plug gap. check for spark. even brand new one need an adjustment at first use. if you can not make it start it has warranty. take it where you bought it.

Do I have to use ethanol free gasoline?

It had better do so--or any saw brand that fails to run on ethanol blended fuels will see sales fall rapidly in the USA. We, personally, own one of these same saws which (when new) ran great for about 3 days, then refused to start. A trip to the warranty repair station got us a new ignition module. After return, it ran for about two days, then would not start again. The warranty repair then installed a replacement carburetor and about a year later, still seems to be working fine--it's a great hard working saw when it operates correctly. Good luck!

It is possible that the clutch has froze, could try taking the side pannel of and seeing if it spins freely with out the chain bar on. If it does, it could be a problem with the chain, make sure its not tightened up too tight and that the chain can move freely over the bar.

My chain saw will start and idle fine, however the chain will not spin and if you try to give it gas the engine will begin to smoke like its running hot and stall out

Your chain may simply be too tight or the brake could be on. Pull back on the Kick Back bar in front of the handle and with the saw not running try to rotate the chain by hand. If it will still not rotate losen the bar mounting bolts and turn chain set screw out a little at a time until chain turns. Retighten and recheck chain. The chain should be able to be pinched from the bottom of the bar, but snap back in place and rotate by hand. Caution chain wil be sharp use gloves or heavy cloth when turning. If all this works out and you still have same results, mix up a new batch of gas/oil and drain saw's tank and put in fresh. Should work now hopefully. Also, one other thing to look for when a saw's chain will not turn is debrie jammed into the sprocket area. In which case may have to take chain and bar assembly apart and clean and then reassemble.

My 455 rancher chain saw is not using her chain oil

Replace the oil pump..Or just try to clean it out but I have been through this and it worked for about ten minutes and I ended up just replacing the pump and works fine now. They are not very expensive (35.00-40.00) and only takes about ten minutes. Get a beer and a table or the tail gate of you truck should be fine. Take off the side cover remove the bar and chain. Clean everything up... air compressor is best a paint brush and rag works good if you do not have a air compressor. Take the top plastic cover (three screws on top of the saw). Pull the spark plug and feed a piece of rope into the cylinder. This will bind up saw so you can remove the clutch. I use a pull start rope from my old lawn mower and keep it in my saw box for this reason. This size and kind of rope seems to work best. Now you need to remove the clutch. There is an arrow on the clutch that tells you which way to turn it to get it off. This can sometimes be tricky but don't give up. I'm sure there is a tool for this and I keep saying that I'm going to make something. I use the handle of a good strong pair of pliers and turn the plier with a pair of vice grips. When you see the clutch you'll figure out something to use to loosen it and spin it off. Un-spin the clutch and remove the clutch drum by just sliding it off the spindle. Be careful because there is a bushing with needle bearings. The bearings are in there pretty good and wont just fall out. If you want to replace that you can 14.00 or so. There is also a plastic drive gear for the pump that just lifts out , replace it too 6.00 or so. Take off the metal cover I think it's just one screw. When you remove the cover you may see a lot of saw dust and oil all packed inside. If you have an air compressor just blow it all out. The oil pump is right there and is simply removed with one screw. clean every thing up put the new pump in put everything back together and you should be back in business.

Ryobi 40cc chain saw oiler not working correctly

Check and clean the oil filter from oil tank.Check the worm gear wich engages with the oil piston pump(under the clutch).Near the hole where the oil comes out from oil tank there is an oil tank valve(see if it is clogged),it equalises the presure between interior and exterior of the oil tank.
