It's a design flaw in timberman chain saws. After some hours of use, they develop a bad habit of not releasing the clutch drum completely. And that takes precious power away from the saw. If it becomes too tight, the clutch drum may over heat and cause the plastic enclosure to warp or melt down. After messing with this brake for months, I ended up completely removing it. Replacing it was not an option for me - there was nothing to replace - it is not the brake band that's bad, but the mechanism in the brake handle of this saw that is flawed. Overall, this chainsaw is very cheaply built - Homelite used waaaay too much plastic in it!

SOURCE: old gas, will not start.
Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

Start with "H" and "L" at 1.5 turns CCW from lightly seated then tune for performance as follows:
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.
