Internal combustion engines can seize up when poor lubrication causes the piston to overheat, expand and come into contact with the cylinder. Seizure affects both 4-stroke and 2-stroke internal combustion engines, and not just in cars, motorcycles and scooters, but in gardening tools too.
The chainsaw chain should feel snug but still pull freely.
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.
Throttle control lockout
This prevents the accidental opening of the throttle. The throttle control is locked in the idle position when the lockout is not pushed in by your right hand gripping the rear handle.
The fuel line may be clogged from stale fuel deposits, more reasons to cause your chainsaw to cut out when applying throttle. If a fuel line is cracked, it will leak gasoline and draw air from outside into the fuel line. If the line is leaking fuel, it needs to be replaced.
To determine whether the chainsaw chain is stretched, pull the chain away from the chainsaw`s guide bar to see if there`s space between the two. If there`s space between the chain and the chainsaw`s guide bar, then the chainsaw chain is stretched.

Check to see if the chain is on the sprocket to do this you will probably have to remove the side cover on the saw if chain is on sprocket and still will not move then you may have a sheared key in the key way if this saw has one, if it does you should be able to see the key way on the end of the shaft coming out of the motor. there should be a nut that holds the sprocket in place if that nut is loose and the shaft is splined instead of having a key way the the sprocket could slip while the motor is turning.
