This is a rather boring video to watch unless you want to work on one of these saws. Mine is the MSE 140 C which is very similar.
My saw was making strange noises so I opened it up and tried to find the problem. When I turned the motor slowly by hand, it felt like something was catching. I couldn’t figure out how get the motor out. I took it to Canyon Cable in Hope BC and they said: «We are too busy for the next 2 weeks and the repair man has not had much experience on this type of saw. We will only work on it if you bring it in completely assembled». I was not confident to leave it with them so I bought this manual on Ebay and fixed it myself. Turned out to be a bad ball bearing at the brush end of the motor. Stihl wants us to use their genuine replacement parts but since the original bearing failed after only light use, I didn’t want to use another of their bearings so I got one from a friend. Besides this problem, it has been a great saw. If you want a PDF version of the manual, send me a message with your email address. I can not upload a PDF to youtube so you will need to give a regular email such as hotmail, gmail, etc. For your protection, make a new hotmail account for this purpose, then don’t use the account anymore after I send you the document.
