I know this is not a true woodworking question – but it is woodworking related and I know the people on this website are some of the most helpful anywhere.
Yesterday I fired up my chainsaw. It started with a few pulls and ran strong for about 5 minutes. Then it just stopped instantly. I could not restart it initially. After about a 10 minute wait it started and ran strong again for about 5 minutes and, once again, stopped instantly.
It is as if once the chainsaw gets so warm something happens and it shuts down. Does anyone have a thought on what could be causing this?
