Diagram 170 stihl

First remove your bar and check oil grooves and holes are clear, use a thin-bladed screwdriver or bar groove scraper. Clean your chain, and jet out the oiler bar-feed hole in the saw body with compressed air if possible (even from a bike pump with a needle valve is good). Refit and hopefully problem solved, also try turning your oil feed adjust screw, if your saw has one, out 1/2 a turn or so.

I have an Andis outliner II I purchased a year ago. I recently changed the blade but it won't cut my hair. Do you kow why?

Sometimes the new blades from Andis are not sharpen enough to get that clean cut. also all trimmers need to be readjusted for power and alignment, plus sharpening the blade, it look like you need a complete sharpen & service on your Andis trimmer. check out Manny's Sharpening they have a Mail Order service, the service they provide is fast and they will sharpen make all the adjustment and give your trimmer more power and the blade will cut clean. They will even adjust the blade at your request on how you want that blade to be set at. Line Ups or Fade Cuts and even shave set. Manny's Sharpening been around for over 20 years and they have a very good rating on the net. Check it out Manny's Sharpening

Blades normally glide tight thru hair....cleaned and oiled blades but still meeting resistance on perfectly combed not matted hair. Blades are approx 5 yrs old. Do they need sharpened maybe. Should I...

Ok if you take them appart don't touch the screws you will find it hard to re-align, if your blades haven't been sharpened for 5 years the i think its a very good place to start

Won't cut hair & is a new blade

Make sure you have "3 in 1" oil nearby and oil the blades before and after each use. Use an old toothbrush to clean the blades while wet with oil and then wipe the excess oil and crud off with a paper towel. Store in a dry place away from bathroom humidity. I've found that the cheap ones just don't do the job and a while back, I decided to pony-up for a decent one. So, the reality is, cheap ones don't cut that well and even the best ones won't cut well if you don't keep them cleaned, oiled and rust-free.

6.5 push mower runs hot and stops.Unable to restart even after cools down.

Check and address the following:
  1. remove the rewind cover and clean the cooling fins
  2. change the oil with synthetic.
  3. clean the bottom of the deck and make sure the blade is sharp.
If it still gets hot and shuts down the bearings may be seizing or the blade brake is mal-adjusted.
Remove the spark plug and pull the lever to release the blade brake, spin the mower over by hand, if you feel a lot of stiffness or resistance to turn make sure the blade brake is not dragging. This is not likely to be the case being you would have noticed it was very hard to pull over when cold..good luck.

ROYAL RL170MX Shredder won't shred

Did you ever put shredder oil onto the cutting blades?????
The blades can clog with paper dust and then it can't shred as many papges as it should or even jam should occasionally shred a sheet of paper with shredder oil poured onto the sheet.

Serger blades do not cut.

For now, it works only satisfactorily:
I applied alcohol to further clean both blades,
dried and then oiled them. There seemed to be a slight gap between blades;
the fabric was dragged into the gap instead of being cut.

Probably requires cleaning- take the grille off, pull the blade free (most pull straight out- some have a pin/socket deal right behind the blades that need to be removed first) and clean out any gunk you may find inside. Be sure to unplug it first. before replacing the blade, turn the shaft with your hands to see how it moves; you might want to grease it with an electricity friendly lube of your choice. If it's still hard to turn, it may just be this fans time; box fans are cheap, and made cheap, and the wear-and-tear adds up.
