Question about Razor MX500 Dirt Rocket

1 Answer

My razor mx 500 motor won't turn.

The motor shaft turns about 1/4 of a turn when I hit the throttle so I know its getting juice but then it stops. Even when disconnected from the chain with no load on it. New fully charged batteries. I thought it was the motor so I bought a new one but itstill has the same problem. Any help? thanks!

I think you are talking about an electric motor on your bike . If the motor is New you may have a bad throttle switch . You can use an ohm meter to check the throttle switch . Connect the two leads of the ohm meter to the wires of the throttle switch ( dissconected) . As you turn the throttle the ohm reading should coraspond to how much you turn it .

Clean and tighten all wires connected to the battery, motor , controller etc.being doubly sure of all grounding wires . Don't take any shortcuts ...remove wires ,clean and inspect for cracking or burning, clean and or replace....this will pay off for you...Good Luck....Tim

SOURCE: my razor mx500 is not

Look hard for loose wires. Start with the on off switch. Make sure all are plugged up. The fuse should be accessible without taking things apart. Water is a major enemy of the solid state box the wires go into before they go to the battery.

76 shovelhead,when you hit starter button,and release it the motor will keep turning over


Your on the right track there's a bushing in the outer primary, when your running a dry clutch the starter jack shaft has no lubrication. So add a smear of anti seize compound.

I have ryobi rlt 30 strimmer and the shaft seems to be turning but the head has not got enough power in the shaft to turn the head and it all so seems to be vibrating where the shaft can be joined together...


For starters, check the condition of the LOWER flex- shaft.Remove the LOWER from the upper shaft, and while turning the string head, see if the top end of the flex shaft turns also. I think your unit has a clutch which makes diagnosing the flex shaft in the UPPER shaft housing (the one attatched to motor) a lot more difficult. If the upper flex-shaft is clutched, it WILL NOT turn when turning over the engine (unless the clutch is bad or has malfunctioned; which is rare). To inspect the UPPER flex-shaft, you will have to do a dissassembly (partial) at the motor housing cover in the front to pull the upper shaft out to inspect it. To get it all the way out to look at it, you will have to remove the throttle cable from the arm on the carb and disconnect the STOP switch wires going to the coil (located UNDER the front motor housing cover). Post back with what you find. Wish I was there to help.

KTM 950 sm won't start...starter tries to kick bike over but sounds like it is not getting enough juice...battery terminls and lead wires get very hot....battery is new..so I know that is not the...


The wiring should not be getting hot, but if you are trying to get the engine running with the starter motor and it is not turning the engine over, you need to investigate why the engine is not turning. Put the shifter in top gear and try to push the bike (key off) to see if the engine is free to turn. If ok, remove the starter motor and check the drive to the engine. It may be a broken chain or other interference trouble. Try running the starter with the chain disconnected. If it won't turn (make sure the body of the motor is touching the engine), the motor may be jammed in some way. The other possibility is that the wiring to the starter is grounding out somewhere--maybe the starter solenoid. Hope this helps!

I need to know the high and low settings on husqvarna35


Turn both jet needles CW to stops (lightly), then turn each screw out CCW 1-1/2 turns. This is a basic setting which should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Adjust H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-stroking. Proper final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW for better idle, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set the idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine will continue to idle. Hope this helps!

My chain saw will not start. I gave it to a guy who messed up the carb adjustments. Need to know the initial carb setting.


Turn both jet screws CW to stops (lightly), then back each out CCW 1-1/2 turns. This is a basic setting and should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Turn the H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-strokes. Correct adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes running free, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle so that the engine idles fairly well, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!

Electric Chainsaw - chain stops when you try to cut!


Remove the bar and chain--check the sprocket and shaft for any mechanical damage. Try to turn the sprocket by hand in a CCW direction, does the shaft move with it? Does it seem to turn the motor? If the sprocket and shaft seem ok, then you may have a damaged gear (likely plastic) within the gearbox. Hope this helps!

1) I have a cwe1840 electric chainsaw it work well but now the chain stops once i start cutting but the motor is still running 2) When i leave the push button the chain keeps on runnuing it doesn't stop...


You need to remove the side cover, then remove the bar and chain. Inspect the sprocket connection to the drive shaft for a broken coupler, spring, or sheared key. Does the shaft turn freely by hand? If so, then the internals of the gearbox have a problem. Good luck!

Chain saw carburator settings for husqvarna 61


Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Allow the engine to warm up, then pull the throttle full on. Turn the H jet screw CW until the engine starts to speed up, but still 4-strokes. Proper adjustment occurs when the engine is 4-stroking, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This gives best power and lowest heat. Release the throttle and adjust L jet CW until the engine idles fairly well, but will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Adjust idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!
