Question about Husqvarna 450 e-series 18" Chain Saw
After working fine for hours with my Husqvarna 445 the fly wheel break just engaged and the chain will not spin..... so i opened up the case to give it a good cleaning.. after closing the case it is now very hard to pull the cord ... i am not able to get it started
The flywheel does not have a brake,the clutch side has the break.if you have the chain side cover off the brake is no longer on the clutch drum.the fly wheel is on the oppiset side (starter rewind).take the starter rewind off and see if the motor will turn.if hte motor turns the problem is in the clutch side.if it doesn't the problem is in the flywheel side.the ignition coil has been known to loosen up.the screws streitch out from heat.check the air gap between the flywheel magnets and the ignition coil.should be .10 to .12 inches.if problem is on clutch side check to make sure that the springs are on between the clutch discs.they have been known to break and that does not let the chain spin on bar.any questions get me an e mail

Firstly, try pulling the chain brake handle back into the running position - you should hear a click if the brake is working correctly. Then try rotating the chain by hand - if it rotates your problem is solved!
If this does not work you should check to see that the chain brake cover is seated properly on the saw. You may be binding the clutch with the chain brake. Remove the chain brake or clutch cover again and attempt to reset the brake by pulling it to the rear - again you should hear a click. Reinstall the cover and ensure it is seating flat to the main body of the saw. Then ensure the chain is loose enough to rotate by using the chain tensioning screw - the nut or nuts that hold the chain brake to the saw will have to be slightly loose. The chain should have a very minor bow to it when you look at the bottom of the bar. Do not forget to snug the nuts down firmly when your a finished.
Should these suggestions fail you might consider going to your chain saw shop and have them look at it as the chain brake is an important safety item and should function correctly at all times.
