To release a stuck brake you can do several things. If it is safe to do so, you can try rocking the vehicle back and forth or manually getting under the vehicle to pull the cables. You can also try setting and releasing the brake multiple times in the hopes of knocking the brakes free.
Sometimes if you pull up on the parking brake too hard then it may be hard to release. The easiest way to release it is to push on the button while pulling up on the parking brake lever. It may be tough to lift lever but this is the only way to get it to release.
One of the most common causes of sticking brakes is simple: stuck brake calipers. Most vehicles use disc brakes, which include brake pads, rotors, and calipers. If the brake caliper gets stuck, you`ll notice a sticky sensation in your brakes.
Whenever your brakes start sticking, it means the brake pads are being held against the rotors even if you release the brake pedal. This is going to mean they`ll wear down much faster than they should as your rotors keep moving and you`ll have to get new brake pads on just that wheel sooner than you normally would.
TYPES OF PARKING BRAKES
Press down on the pedal until you hear it click to engage it. Pull the lever above the foot pedal to release the brake.
The Right Way to Set a Parking Brake
To disengage the parking brake, push the button at the end of the lever and push it back down. This is where the name “handbrake” comes from. However, it isn`t used as often with new cars. Some cars have the parking brake mechanism on the lower left side of the steering wheel.
In short, no – you cannot continue to drive with a damaged brake caliper. Doing so can be extremely dangerous for both your vehicle and the safety of yourself and other road users. If you choose to continue driving your car, you could cause your brake pads to suffer additional damage.
To remove a caliper piston that has become seized, the hydraulic pressure of the brake system itself can be used. Remove the caliper from the disc, and pump the brake pedal to move the piston past the corroded portion. Now you should be able to disassemble and rebuild it.

Husky 435 chain brake is stuck in “locked” position with clutch cover off. How do I release the brake, so the cover will fit over the flywheel?
Hi, grab the cover in a vise in the same place the bar nuts tighten up to. Then pull the chainbrake lever back towards where the handle bar would normally be until it clicks and locks back. This will require a bit of force. Then refit the cover as normal. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

I have a Poulan P2316 chain saw. The chain got stuck in a tree. After freeing it, the clutch appears to be locked up. The chain moves freely on the bar when I remove it from the saw. Thanks Alan

Really clean your battery connectors, Make sure jumper cables are beefy or
they will not allow enough power. If your starter clicks, it is either
stuck engine, weak battery, dead solenoid connectors or dead armature inside the
starter. In rare cases cable connections can come loose at the solenoid (A mechanic knows to take some solenoids
apart and turn the connectors upside down to the uncorroded side.) Make sure your blade is not stuck, make sure your brake is in the correct position, make sure your engage levers and shift linkage are in the neutral start positions.
