The saw starts and revs fine but 75% of the time when i go to cut something the blade stops, but revs still ok. can someone please help?!


If the chain is engaged properly in the sprocket and you've got the correct tension on the chain and the chain stops when you set it into a cut, you are probably riding the saw too hard...meaning you are pushing too hard for the saw to cut and the centrifugal clutch is stopping rotation. If this is an older saw, the pads inside the centrifugal clutch are probably badly worn necessitating replacement of the assembly.

Sometimes on a smaller saw, if the chain is sharpened with an aggressive angle, the little pads start slipping are wear quickly.

If you have the chain tension tightened too much, it will bind in the guidebar and stop the centrifugal clutch from rotating.

Hard starting


Starting any chain saw can be a bit finicky. How many hours has the saw done since new ruffle? Over about 10 and the saw would have run in and will need to have the fuel adjusted. What fuel to oil ratio are you running?

Just as a point, you might know this but I only pull the saw over 3-4 times with the choke in. Then try to start with it off.

I have a 435 husquvarna chain saw it is hard to start plus it idles high and it smokes and the chain keeps spinning when i let off the trigger


if it is hard to start and smokes sounds like the fuel is to old and the oil to gas mixture is wrong start off with some fresh fuel gas is only good for 30days in small engines

I installed new bar and chain .cleaned every thing .assembled saw filled up chain oil thank. started sarted saw ,chain still not oiling.


Without knowing what saw you have it is hard to exact directions.On most saws their is an adjusting screw on the bottom side of saw by oil tank and chain that adjusted the flow rate of oil. If you can locate that try rurning it one turn clockwise and run saw for a short period and see if you are getting any more oil.If youare sure you have the right screw I would continue adjusting . If it doesn''t seem to work I would remove screw and make sure there is no blockage and that oil is present. For proper operation you need to keep a light film of oil on it. If you aren't getting enough oil you will cause chains to overheat,possibly ruining chain and bar. Hope this help you. Thanks

My chain saw is brand new and is hard to continue


Oil fuel mix is important. Did you mix them at the right ratio?

You should also let the chain saw warm up a little before use, and the choke should be off.

If that doesn't do it, look in the O&M for making slight adjustments to the carb. If that doesn't do it, and the saw is new, take it back. But you really need to try the above first.

It starts up, but when trigger is pulled, the


Most saws have a safety or anti kickback brake. Yours might have tripped. There is a guard in front of where your left hand holds the saw. With the saw NOT running, pull the guard HARD towards the back of the saw. It should move a bit ant you may hear a click. The chain should now move. If the chain moves easily when the saw is not running, but doesn't move when you rev the saw up, the clutch is broken.
