Chain brake problems

When using my pcn4545 18" chainsaw i can only get it started while holding onto the chain brake and pulling it fully back. This means while chopping wood i am holding the brake lever which is dangerous if kick back occours.If i let go of the lever it runs for about 4 seconds then stalls.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

There is a thin spring like piece of metal that wraps around a hub, that tightens up when the break is in the on position. This loosens when the break is off. You may need to adjust this spring.

P.S. When the spring is tight It stops the motor from spinning.

I can't get a replacement chain back on the bar on


The 450E is a tooless system, make sure the brake is off by pulling the handgurd fully back to the top handle, flip up the lever on the big grey fixing nut, undo counter clockwise, wind the grey knurled adjuster wheel facing out of the cover fully back, remove the chainbrake side cover, push the guide bar fully back toward the sprocket, you now have enough rome to replace the chain onto the guide bar rails, now re fit the side cover, make sure the adjuster pawl in the cove aligns with the adjuster hole in the bar, re fit the big fixing nut finger tight, wind the adjuster wheel down to re tention the chain, when the chain is snug all the way around the bar tighten the nut fully.

I have a remington electric chainsaw model 107624-02. The chain came off I put it back on and the saw will now not start. It worked perfectly before this. What are the most likely problems and how can I...


It is possible there is a micro switch in the chain brake handle, grab the hand guar and pull it fully back to the top handle, it should click when the brake has dissengaged, now try again.

Unable to get chain break cover back on after putting on new chain


It sounds like the chainbrake has activated, the band is now smaller that the drum, clamp the brake in a vice, be carfull not to damage the cover, remove the two screws holding the hand guard to the machine and remove, now insert the hand guard into the quadrant in the brake, pull the hand guard fully back to de activate the brake, it will take some force as it is compressing a large internal spring, the other way to do it is to remove the clutch and sprocket, re fit the brake onto the saw and use the hand guard to load the brake, pull it fully back toward the rear of the saw until it clicks and loads, now re fit the clutch and sprocket.

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.

Husky mod. 51chainsaw. how do i re-assemble chain brake lever? i do not know how to reset the handle to allow the internal clutch locking spring to slip over the clutch


To re assemble the hand guard back onto the brake cover, place the hand guard as best you can onto the side cover, now use a conical punch to push throught the hand guard and cover, now useing the punch as a pivot pull the hand guard fully back until the brake loads, once loaded remove the puch, the hand guard should now easily align back onto the cover, insert the two puvot collers and re fit the allen screw.

What are the steps to replace a chain on a Husqvarna 345 chain saw?


Start by making sure the chain brake is off, pull the hand guard fully back to the top handle, now remove the two 8mm nuts securing the side cover, screw the chain adjuster in the crankcase fully back toward the sprocket, assemble the guide bar over the guide bar bolts and slide it fully back toward the sprocket, now loop the chain over the sprocket and lay it inthe guide bar raiuls and around the guide bar nose, make sure the sharo endge of the cutters on the top of the guide bar are facing away from the machine ( as you loog at it, it rotates clockwise ) now align the hole in the guide bar with the adjuster pawl, re assemble the chainbrake side cover back onto the saw, and fit the bar nuts finger tight, adjust the chain adjuster so as the chain is a snug fit all the way around the guide bar, with a gloved hand pull the chain around the bar manually, so as to make sure it is completly seated in the sprocket and bar rails, re tension if needed, hold the tip if the guide bar up and fully tighten the bar nuts.
Job done.

Ryobi pcn3335 chainsaw chainbrake will not release fully


1. Is there a Homelite/Ryobi dealer/authorized repair facility near you? If yes I'd try them they may repair it.
2. Any major chainsaw seller/repairer may be able to repair it... there will be a fee.

I own a few chain saws without chain brakes. I also own and use good PPE.
