Question about Ryobi Factory Reconditioned 18" 40cc 2-Cycle Gas Powered Chain Saw #ZRRY10532
Posted by Anonymous on
This seems to be a chain brake that's applied , try turning off chain brake by pulling back on hand guard till a click is felt
some folks moving up from an older saw to a more modern saw are not so familiar with chain brakes and don't understand them and how they work

SOURCE: Chain does n't rotate
Is the chain brake "on"?, can you pull the chain around the bar?
Is the drive sprocket teeth worn all the way through.
Does the engine high rev or is it loaded when you throtle up?

If your chain has recently jumped off the bar while running, your chain may have "burs" on the drive links (part of the chain that rides in the bar groove). These burs will make the chain rub the inside of the rails and thus bind the chain in the groove. You can file these off with a flat file if there aren't very many, but you may need to just replace the chain. You can find files, bars, chains & sprockets for your saw at PartsBuggy.com.
