Check to see if the brake is on. the large handle in front. move it. its a safety device that stops the saw if it kicks back on you.

    your brake may not look like a handle. it may look more like a hand shield. in any case it is the most forward device. it will move back and forward.

Ozito petrol chainsaw will not start and its new

Make sure you have followed the starting instructions, have filled with correct mix of petrol/gas and oil. If it still won't start, take it back to the retailer.

I have a ryobi chainsaw that floods even if I dont prime it at all when trying to start it.. Before I go to start it the air cleaner is soaked with petrol and when I remove the spark plug it is wet.On...

Ideally saws should be stored in cool conditions out of the sun to prevent pressure building up and with the tank lower than the engine.
Drain the tank also and run the engine dry, as when the fuel evaporates, it leaves a varnish residue which coats the small pasageways in the carburettor.
It is possible that the fuel pump diaphragm in the carburettor is punctured and this is allowing fuel to seep into the saw

Got the new Ryobi RHT2660DA petrol hedge trimmer today. Have mixed fuel to instructions and followed every step to the letter. It starts fine, but keeps stopping when I excelerate it, any ideas?

It is running too lean on the mixture, if it was new return it for re tuning, it will be an easy fix which will only take a few minutes.

If you have followed all of the instructions in the owner's manual for starting, then take the saw back to Home Depot for warranty exchange or service. Good luck!

New Ryobi petrol c/saw wont start.

If it is brand new, sounds like you should return it for the retailer to have repaired.
