This is the de compression button, it should be pushed in every time you start the saw, it makes it easier for you to start the saw and reduces the stress and wear on the starter components, it will automatically pop out when the saw starts.

SOURCE: my 455 rancher won't maintain power. I have

If you have been running ethnol mix in your saw there is a good chance that your fuel vent line is plugged. Loosen your fuel cap and start saw on its side and see if it runs. If it does you will have to clean your fuel vent.

SOURCE: 455 rancher chainsaw does not pump oil to the chain

If you look under the machine by the chain you'll see a flat head screw (next to the sprocket) which controls the bar and chain oil flow . Try to turn the screw and check if there's any oil flow to the chain . If not you will need to replace the oil pump (part # 537 10 55-02 which will cost you about $35.00) Hope this help

A Husqvarva IPL for a 455 Rancher 2005-01, follows (may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/usa/2005/I05000/I0501036.pdf
See print "A" (clutch cover) pn 537 28 64-01 & pn 503 21 70-10, if missing or loose these may cause your problem. If not an inspection of the parts beneath may disclose the defect.

If the bar is what can be moved pn 537 28 65-01 or 537 28 66-01 may be stripped. After I determined what parts need replacement, I would contact a local Husky Dealer. They may have these parts on hand and if not ordering through them should save you shipping and handling fees.

If your saw was not manufactured between Jan 2005 and Mar 2005 you can find your IPL here:

Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)

06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000; please contact Husqvarna for single digit clarification http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/customer-support/)
15 = week produced – March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

SOURCE: magneto to flywheel gap for Husqvarna 455 Chain Saw

Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when flywheel is rotated.

Wher do the two carburator linkages hook up to a husqvarna on a 455 rancher


The throttle wire plasric end sits through the back of the crancase and into the square cut a way into the tank back handle, the hooked wire end drops into the carb throttle spindle on the r/h side of the carb, the blue clip on the spendle then rotated and locks the wire in, the choke pull just pushes into the choke spindle on the l/h side of the carb, it has a bullet style end to stop it popping out again

Husqvarna 455 rancher new filters /plug get spark wont start put gas in cylinder and wont start what am i missing


Check to see if there is a leak in the air purge bulb (primer bulb), sometimes they crack and allow air in and don't push the gas through properly. Here is the manual for your saw.

This sounds like the throttle spindle sticking, or the cable sticking, if you remove the top cover and air filter, then push the throttle spindlefully back to the stop screw with your finger, then try again, the spindle may be a little gummed up.

Husky 55 rancher - I rebuilt this saw but now it won't start. Seems like not getting enough gas. What should I check for?


Check for plugged fuel filter and muffler. Check the fuel lines for decay or damage. Did you service the carburetor? Make sure the lower chamber diaphragm is not hard or cracked. Did you change the two jet settings? Put some fuel mix into the plug hole and pull it through--you should get a pop or two. If ok, then concentrate on the fuel problem. If no spark at the plug, check the ignition module gap to the flywheel magnets using a thin business card for a gauge. Hope this helps!

455 wont run


Make sure the muffler has not become plugged. Check the flywheel key as it may have sheared off for some reason causing the timing to be off, yet still generate sparks. Are the sparks blue and snappy? If not, check the ignition module gap to the flywheel magnets--use a thin business card for a gauge. A wide gap can cause weak spark. Hope this gets you running again!

Won't crank, thing next to spark plug keeps popping up


Jerry is correct the compression release is ajdacent to the spark plug. If it pops the saw fired and the release closed (what it is supposed to do).
Read page 22 here:
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2009/HOUS2009_1151382-49.pdf
Excerpt follows: "Pull the starter handle (D): Pull the starter handle with your right hand and pull out the starter cord slowly until you feel a resistance (as the starter pawls engage) then pull firmly and rapidly until the engine fires. Push in the choke control as soon as the engine fires which can be heard through a "puff" sound. Keep on pulling the cord powerfully until the engine starts."
Continuing with the choke closed causes flooding. Please read the "Warm Engine" too it is slightly different.
