Husqvarna 50 Chainsaw - chain wont engage with throttle
It's like the clutch isn't engaging when with throttle. The clutch looks like it is still ok. How can I test to see if it's engaging and if the clutch is engaging but I still don't have a turning chain what other issue might I have? Chain was working fine and then over about 10 minutes became less and less tension until once I try to engage the chain into wood the chain would stop though I had throttle.

That should be all that was there. If it's a fairly new saw, it could just fit tight. Not that I recommend this, but leave the nuts 1/2 loose. I had to get my chain moving using a pair of welding gloves and pulling it around the bar. The whole thing seated properly & I finished tightening it up. the brake fits tight but you don't want to lubricate it or it won't function properly when you need it. Also be sure the brake ISN'T engaged when you reassemble and when you're finished. Hope this helps.
Sounds like the chain brake may be engaged. You should have a lever that looks somewhat like a handguard on the top of the chainsaw, right in front of the handle you hold the saw with. It should "snap" when you disengage the chain brake by pulling the lever back towards you.
Hi, Right inside of where the bolts are that hold the bar on and the chain tensioner is... there is a centrifugal clutch that engages the chain when the engine revs up...that clutch has gone bad and is not transferring the power from the saw to the chain... Of that is assuming that the chain is on the sprocket and not sitting off to the side of the sprocket...
the easiest way i have found to put the cover back on is to take the clutch drum off.now youn can put the cover on.reset the brake and reinstall the clutch drum.the brake loop gets in the way any other way.hope this helped,if not let me know and we can try something different.......
If the brake is not engaged the only thing it could be is the clutch, or the bar. If the bar is burnt or bent from the chain failing off then you will have this problem. But this sounds more like a clutch problem
