Was cutting a limb and the chain stopped turning-What's the problem?


Equipped with a chain brake? Did the handle accidently move backward and apply the brake? If this is not your problem, possible clutch failure. Did you run out of blade oil? Will the engine pull over?

I have a chain saw 55 husqvarna and while the motor turn he stop suddenly often of the time when I put the brake and the motor is truning slowly he stop


Check to make sure the brake binder is not engaged...which is the same as saying: check and make sure the kickback brake handle is fully cocked. The handle should be oriented rearward towards the forward hand grip. If it is forward, pull it back stongly until it lockes in place. (Hint: also make sure the binder is released/brake cocked always before attempting to remove the brake assembly from the saw drive engine subassembly.)

Install side cover on 455 rancher with chain break


Problem is you removed side cover with chain brake closed. You must open the chain brake to re-install the cover. You can do it with the handle. Put the side cover into position, put the handle into the fitting on the side cover. push the handle forward until you feel the "3" point connector engage. apply pressure to the handle and pull back until the side chain brake "Pops" open. Your Husqvarna dealer has a tool to open the chain brake if you are unable to get it open. Takes about 5 mins.

Have a Husqvarna chainsaw, model 142, that starts and idles fine, but when I give it gas, it bogs (makes a low hollow sound) and the chain only turns a little or not at all. Any suggestions greatly...


Are you sure the the chainbrake is not on, grab the hand guard and pull it firmly back to the top handle until it clicks and the brake is off.

Reference the Husqvarna 350 chainsaw. Why does the chain continue to turn at idle? I just installed a new clutch. Adjusting the idle down causes the saw to shut off upon trying to accelerate.


Sounds like the clutch is still grabing. Easy solution is to apply the chain brake at idle to stop the chain turning. Try adjusting the L screw for a smoother idle.

Good Morning : I have a Husqvarna 142 e chain saw about 2 years old and I have an excessive amount of bar oil dripping out . Is there some kind of flow adjustment for this problem ? Thanks , Mark :


First, deactivate the chain brake, back-off the chain adjuster, then remove the bar and chain. Run the engine at speed for a moment or two--the oil should ooze out of the engine side port. If the oil quantity seems about right, then clean the drive end of the bar oil-passages including the two small passages that go out to the chain groove on each side. Clean the chain groove and check the sprocket on the far end (if equipped). Reassemble the bar and chain, then start and run the engine at speed for several moments with the bar tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Check the owner's manual for location of any oil-volume adjustment if needed.
