What U can do is take a Flat tip screw driver & carefully try to Pry the Cover Off... Please be Carefull, and try Prying at different locations, and don't Pry too hard, OK... Let Me know if this Helps.. Sounds like the Brake is Stuck, when the cover comes Off, the Brake should release!!!!! Have a Good One...

Need to put a new chain on a Husqvara 235 14 inch chain saw?


Check that the chain brake is in disengaged position by
moving the front hand guard towards the front handle.
Remove the bar nuts and remove the clutch cover (chain
brake). Take off the transportation ring.
Fit the bar over the bar bolts. Place the bar in its rearmost
position. Place the chain over the drive sprocket locate it in
the groove on the bar. Begin on the top edge of the bar.

Make sure that the edges of the cutting links are facing
forward on the top edge of the bar.
Fit the clutch cover (chain brake) and locate the chain
adjuster pin in the cut-out in the bar. Check that the drive
links of the chain fit correctly on the drive sprocket and that
the chain is in the groove on the bar. Tighten the bar nuts
finger-tight.
Tension the chain by turning the chain tensioning screw
clockwise using the combination spanner. The chain
should be tensioned until it does not sag from the
underside of the bar.
The chain is correctly tensioned when it does not sag from
the underside of the bar, but can still be turned easily by
hand. Hold up the bar tip and tighten the bar nuts with the
combination spanner.
When fitting a new chain, the chain tension has to be
checked frequently until the chain is run-in. Check the
chain tension regularly. A correctly tensioned chain
ensures good cutting performance and long life.

I am unable to get the bar and chain off of my Poulan Pro 260 42cc chainsaw because the stud for the clutch brake housing has broken loose inside the housing. When turning the clutch brake nut the clutch...


I ran into the same problem and I "cheated" my way through this. First of all, the thread is metric on the stud. Take an imperial nut and start to thread it on the stud. Don't force it, it will stop after half a turn. Now you hold the imperial nut with a socket or a wrench, and use a flat wrench to undo the other nut(the one that is stuck). It took me 2 minutes to remove it and no damage done at all.

Hope it helps
Mike

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.

How do I remove the chain on a Husqvarna 455 Rancher chain saw


Start by making sure the chain brake is off, pull the hand guard fully back to the top handle, remove the bar nuts ( 13mm ) if it has tooless chain adjustment flip the nut wing out and undo the big grey nut, screw the chain adjuster fully back, if tooless wind the knurled adjuster fully back, now remove the side cover/brake assembly, loop the chain off the nose of the bar, and then over the sprocket and remove.

How do I get the brake band ,located inside the chain cover, assembled back onto the chain saw. clutch assembly. The band brake diameter seems too small to fit around the clutch housing.


You need to load the brake, clamp it in a vice, be carefull not to damage the cover, if the hand gaurd is connected to the brake pull it fully back until the locks off, this may take a fair amount of force as it is compressing a large spring, if the hand guard is on the machine, remove it and use this as a tool to load the brake, the only other way is to remoce the clutch and sprocket, now refit the brake onto the saw, now pull the hand guard fully back to load the brake.

We used our Husqvarna for about 20 minutes when it stopped rotating. Turned it off and was idle absolutely fine but the chain still won't turn. Sorry, don't know the model, but it's brand new....??


on some of the new chain saws there is a safety switch on the guard in front of the handle, it goes forward to lock the chain and pull it back to unlock the chain sometime make sure it is in the it is pulled back and check to see if it is still hook up to the switch.

Brake mechanism stuck in locked position Husqvarn 142 chainsaw


COMMON PROBLEM----you have to push it forward you wont break it, it is much stronger than you think you just have to hold the cover section and push or lever the bar forward, it will go. I believe one Ace hardware guy had some sort lever wrench made up just to do this for all the people like you. so muscle up and do it "youdoit "
