If same as mine there is a screw under side to stop oil flow altogether for storage or to slow down if excessive flow but remember to open if using so the chain doesn`t burn out to soon

SOURCE: Oil is leaking out the bottom of the saw after

check the hose that goes to the oilway if everything checks clear you may have a crack in your oil tank due to excessive vibration and weak molding.

It will be necessary to replace the entire plastic casting containing both tanks. Repair of plastic cracks is not practical due to inability of any form of cement/glue to bond with the plastic and saw vibration would hasten the process. Just empty the tank out when not using the saw. Good luck!

SOURCE: husqvarna rancher, leaks oil when saw is off.

The hose is leaking. You will have to replace the hose. You do not have to disassemble the saw in half as many seem to think. Just some of the parts that are in the way. You can insert a wire and pull the hose out from the oil tank along with the filter. It goes in and you remove only the parts that are in the way where the hose comes out.

My oil reservoir is leaking


The grey plug in the base of the oil tank is the oil filter it will twist 1/4 turn and pull out, to replace push back in and turn 1/4 turn there is a leg on it that locks into the orange tank, there is a screw driver slot in it to assist this, they can be really tight try not to force too much or you will break it.

Husky model 36, 16 in. bar, over oiling, non adjustable pump, will pump out a full tank of oil on about 3/4 tank of fuel, everything is spotless and dont have a clue on how to fix it.


The biggest problem with oiling on this machine was always under oiling, the pump is a fixed capacity so it should be impossible to over oil, it is more likley leaking from around the oil pump pick up and delivery hoses, or from the oil tank breather.If all is ok there then it is going to be a replacment pump.

Husqvarna chain saw oiler problem


I fear you are correct about the oiler problem. I see a lot of oiler problems on these saws. Sooner or later Husky will have to address it. Ask the dealer about modifying your oiler; the 350 has an adjustable and might fit 1 or both of these saws. I think Husky needs to admit the nonadjustable is a mistake, and come up with a fix.

If you want to do some research start with the IPLs here:
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week
Please post back (below) with what happens at the dealer. Take your buddy and his saw with you! Good Luck. HTH

If Husky starts modifying all these with 350 oilers I want compensation...LOL

When I top up the chain oil it runs out of the opposite side really rapidly, I don't see how to fill it in the instruction booklet


Are you using bar oil? Is it less than 2 years old (warranted)? Did the chain come off and hit the tank?
I think your saw may have been impacted and the oil tank is broken. I didn't see an oil vent on the IPL but if the filler is on the bottom of the saw and you must lay it on its side to fill there must be one. Take it and your bar oil with you and stop by your friendly neighborhood Husky dealer. Ask what they think the problem might be. You might be pleasantly surprised. Purchase some 2 cycle oil, a new chain, some bar oil, something. When time for a new saw remember how they treated you.

Chainsaw leaks chain oil when not in use


You might try loosing the oil cap on the chain oiler filler cap to release any preasure that might have built up during use and is forcing oil out as it sits. It sounds like a simple fix but it might just work.
