Kinda dumb question, have you checked your chain brake?

If the springs are broken, the clutch pads won`t retract, preventing the chain from stopping. If the clutch pads are sticking, the clutch drum will stay engaged and continue to turn. If the springs are broken or the clutch pads are sticking, replace the clutch assembly.
