If your non-starting chainsaw is electric

If you have an electric chainsaw that won`t start, first make sure that the power cable is connected to the mains, then check whether the cable and plug are damaged. If they aren`t, the problem could lie in the motor which, for example, may have worn or damaged brushes.

Over time, the spark arrestor can become clogged with soot. If the spark arrestor is clogged, the chainsaw may run stall or run rough. To unclog the spark arrestor, remove it and clean it with a wire brush. You can also replace the spark arrestor.
When you go to operate the saw, and the saw does not operate, you might want to check out a few things: 1) Make sure the battery is fully charged. 2) Be sure that the battery is put into the saw correctly, and secured. 3) There might be debris on the battery, or inside the saw, where the battery connects.
