My cutter spins it releases and locks like it is suppose to but it will not cut. When I place the tool around a pipe it slips around as to grab the pipe again like it is designed to do but instead of grabbing the pipe securely and bringing the two carriage pieces together when the tool starts to rotate the two pieces move further apart from one another

Pipe cutters are really useful tools that can be used in the house to cut pipes that are made from metal or plastic. You could always try using a saw of some kind but pipe cutters will give you a much straighter edge.
Here are some basic instructions to help you successfully use a pipe cutter.
1. Decide exactly where on the pipe you would like to make a cut.
2. Loosen the handle on the pipe cutter and place it around the pipe.
3. Now tighten the cutter until the blade is in contact with the pipe.
4. Turn the pipe cutter a few turns around the pipe and it will score a line into the pipe.
5. Keep turning the pipe cutter around until you've cut the pipe off.
6. In order to create a nice straight edge inside the cut pipe you need to take the bottom blade out of the pipe cutter.
7. Place it into the cut end of the pipe and turn it around a few times until it's nice and smooth.
Hello. Please make sure the saw brake is not set. This locks the blade so it cannot spin. If it is locked then if you try to rev the saw, the blade cannot turn and the clutch will scream. The other thing it could be is it sounds like the chain is out of the groove and the clutch is slipping BAD. UNPLUG the chainsaw. Check to make sure the chain turns freely around the cutter bar. If it does not move at all, you will need to closely examine the cutter bar to see if it has 'popped' out of the guide path. You must also make sure the chain is on the drive gear correctly. These are 2 things to look at that can help you. Hope this helps..
One day years ago, our new garbage disposal got stuck, and started humming instead of grinding. My mom turned off the switch, then she grabbed a wood-handled broom and stuck it down in the disposal. I was wondering, what's that lady doing.
She took the wood handled broom and placed it on the disposal cutter wheel that was stuck. Then she wedged the broom against the sink opening, She pushed the cutter wheel forward until it was free. Then she showed me that the cutter wheel is supposed to spin freely even when the switch is off.
That's how I learned to un-stick a garbage disposal.
Does the metal arm come out to grab the threads to cut it? Is there a blade in the metal arm that cuts the tread? I think a standard utility knife cutter blade is the same size (just like the one that cuts the bobbin thread when you put in a new bobbin). What happens when you activate the cutter is the arm comes out, grabs the threads, brings them to the blade which cuts the threads, the velcro by the cutter holds the bobbin thread in place for the next stitch. Otherwise the thread may end up on top and the top thread would not be able to pick it up for the next stitch.
First look carefully at your die, is one of the cutters out of place? I hope you have been using plenty of cutting oil, not lube oil. Lube oil will ruin cutters. If your cutters have chips out of the cutting edge, they won't work. Don't try to thread stainless steel. Only use a die that has a guide section on it to keep the die true to the pipe.
I think you are supposed to rotate the cutter around the pipe. If this is so then use a small amount of pressure and then rotate, repeat until pipe is cut. The cutters could be blunt in which case they must be replaced.
First off get a new belt, I am sure this one has stretched. Then put the belt around the brush roll, put it in the center, put the bottom plate back on. Then turn the big knob on the front and turn it until it locks, you will know if it grabbed the belt, it will be hard to turn. Then install the nozzle back on the vac, lock it down, turn the knob again and it will release the belt on he pulley.
