Question about Husqvarna "Chain Saw - 16" Bar, 3 Hp

1 Answer

Husqvarna model 345 chainsaw

Saw worked fine for a 20 minutes or so, then instead of idling it would die. Re-started easily. Thought it was possibly overheating, so let it cool down for an hour or more. Now it won't start. Doesn't even deliver any promising starting sounds.

I don't know how to access the spark plug to check it out?

Husqvarna 345 chainsaw cuts off when hot


It sounds like it may be getting lean at that point, and it could be something like a tank vent. When this happens, open the filler cap, close it, and see if the saw will start.

Another easy test is to fill the tank completely in the event that a small hole has formed in the fuel line inside the tank. I doubt that is the problem, but worth the time to check before moving on to other tests.

If that doesn't work, disassemble the carburetor and clean all passages with non flammable brake cleaner (carburetor cleaner can damage check valves and soft small engine components). Sometimes dirt can accumulate in places that affect how the diaphragm moves.

If none of this works, have a service shop evaluate the unit. Pressure and vacuum tests will reveal the culprit(s) and determine if the saw qualifies for service.

I have a husqvarna 272xp chainsaw, it starts but dies quickly was playing with carb setting and got it to keep running, but when idling it surges to high rpm for a few seconds and then goes back to normal,...


I'd guess at a dirty carb. If its been sitting the gas may have gone bad and clogged up the carb. Try spraying some carb cleaner in the mouth of the carb. It's possible that the idle is turned up too high to compensate for clogged ports in the carb. This is a possibility but not a guaranteed solution. Good luck.

Husky 455 dies out at full throttle or under load


Your carb may be the issue but your ignition coil could be the culprit. Once they start going bad, they can act up intermittently or give various symptoms from day to day. The fact that your saw dies at full load or under load, probably means that when your saw gets hot or requires more spark, your coil is not able to provide it. Your carb is easy enough to clean out, you can take it all apart and clean all screens, etc....

I just replaced my coil due to the exact same symptoms and now my saw runs great. $60 off ebay and you can put it on in 15 minutes yourself. Check your carb first though

Where is the bar oil adjusted from on husqvarna 345


Turn the Hus 345 chain saw upside down, you may see a little Icon of a oil droplet and a + - arrow by the chain. THe adjustment screw is not pictured in any of the standard user manuals,. but it is a small black slot headed screw over a rectangale metal tab by the chain. I believe if you turn it counter-clockwise, it will give you more oil,, It did for me. If you have the bar off, you can start the saw and see it come out the hole, that would verify your oil pump is working. Make sure the holes on the bar are clean also. running the saw at a fast idle for 1 min should oil the chain well enouth that it starts spraying off the end of the bar when you gun the engine.

My 345 chainsaw bogs down when it hits wood


There are two idle screws one high, and one low. Your high adjustment idle screw needs to be adjusted.

345 husqvarna chain saw will not run


If it idles it is not flooding out as it it most vulnerable to flooding at idle if the stalling is happening as you try to throttle it up it is likely starved for fuel. Start by changing the in tank fuel filter, and the spark plug. good chance that will solve your problem. If it does not Turn the high idle screw out in 1/8 turn increments try running the saw after each adjustment. Keep track of the amount that you turn the screw. you might have to put it back to its original position. Some times adjustment screws will vi berate out of adjustment and other times crud will cause fuel restriction opening the screw allows for a larger port for any restrictions to pass through. After you use the saw for a short time turn screw back in if it starts to stall at idle or you notice increased smoke.
