Was preparing to use electric chain saw to remove 4 small trees in my yard.

Plugged in the saw and squeezed the power trigger to confirm everything was ready and working properly. The saw started running and did not stop when I released the trigger. I squeezed the trigger several times trying to get the saw to shut off but in continued to run. I carefully placed the saw on the ground keeping the moving chain from touching anything. I then delicately unplugged the saw keeping the moving chain from touching anything.
