Mine did this when nearly brand new. You likely have a nasty jam of oil and sawdust stuck between the chain brake and the flywheel. It can be loosened by either careful prying of the case or precise shots of carb cleaner up in the housing. While you are in there look for a buildup of oil around the chain brake connection to the kickback paddle.

How to remove the chain from a husqvarna 235e chainsaw?


Like this or pretty close.





  1. Cock brake while expanding chain brake binder by pulling brake handle towards left-hand (wrap-around) handle grip, hard, until it locks in place.


  2. Loosen 2 brake-asssembly-and- bar retaining nuts but do not remove yet.


  3. Unscrew (turn CCW) bar adjustment screw on front face of unit in order to shorten bar and slacken saw chain.


  4. Slip chain off bar over bar tip and towards inward side of bar.


  5. Remove two nuts loosened in step 2 and pull brake assembly and bar straight out and off bar mounting studs.


  6. While rotating clutch/brake-drum, maneuver saw chain off sprocket and around drum perimeter to remove from saw.


  7. Repeat/reverse steps 6 thru 1 in that order to reassemble.

There is a number of ways to re load the brake, you can either remove the clutch and sprocket, the brake will then go back onto the saw enabling you to use the hand guard on the saw to load the brake ( to remove the clutch, there are two cut a ways in the clutch centre designed to enter a flat screw driver into, then strike with a suitable hammer to remove, it is a left hand thread ) or you can remove the hand guard from the saw and use this as a tool to re load the brake, or you can clamp the cover in a vice ( be carefull not to damage the cover ) then use a strudy pair of pliers or grips in the three legged loading mechanism and turn it to load the brake.

Brake band will not go over fly wheel


A link to an IPL a 2008 Husqvarna 235E follows (may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/usa/2008/I08000/I0801001.pdf
It includes a good illustration of the brake and its' components. It is likely the chain brake is released and will need to be engaged to enlarge the brake band.
Reset Chain Brake
Immobilize the clutch cover (blocks of wood on a flat surface to protect the finish) in a vise or with a large C-clamp to a work surface.

Use pliers or a crescent wrench and rotate it clockwise until it latches open. This will require some force. A slight modification reported in a testimonial to the above method follows;
" Thanks for the help. I took your answer and modified the fix a little. I placed the cover on loosely and then moved the bar handle into the right position in order to engage the spoked wheel, then rotated the handle back until the cover fit right. Thanks, SG "–NameRemoved

Chain brake will not reset


Hello. If you haven't done so already remove the bar and chain. The chain brake mechanism is behind the clutch.Clean the whole area with compressed air or a scraper and a shot of engine cleaner if you have some. Look for broken, bent ,stuck or missing parts.

I have a Husqvarna 345e chainsaw. Can't get the cover back on.


That metal band you see which is preventing you from putting on the cover is part of the chain break mechanism. You were suppose to disengage the break before taking off the cover (I did the same thing). To get it back together you need to disengage the break by a tricky procedure and that will make the band diameter larger so it fits over the clutch. To force the band open, you need to first place the cover over the two bolts that hold the bar. As you already know, the back of the cover will not be able to fit over the clutch. Now in this angled position, bend (force) the break lever down (gray thing on top) until you can force together the sproket in the cover onto the mating pastic fitting built into the break lever. Now you can use the break lever to force down the internal spring and open the metal band. That will expand the stainless steel band and it will fit around the clutch. If you now push down on the back of the cover it will snap in over the clutch. Once you see how it is done, it is not so hard, but it is tricky because you are forcing some of the parts slightly out of position to get it back together. .

I can't get the clutch cover back on my Husqvarna 235 e because the chain break is engaged. Spring is too tight to disengage it.


The chain brake is engaged when the brake handle is moved forward.....to ensure it is actually the chain brake...with the clutch cover off and in your hand, pull the chain brake back...if it will not move, attempt to move it forward to see if it was not engaged...if it moves forward, it is now engaged...pull back to disengage it...a lot of times the problem is not the brake, but rather the bar adjuster....if the brake is not the problem,...loosen the bar adjuster and reassemble the unit...once assembled, then adjust the bar as per the user manual.

let me know what you find.
