Check the ignition module. as the saw heats up it causes the inside of the module to expand which causes it to stop producing spark. when it cools off it makes contact again and starts working right

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

SOURCE: Fuel Mixture Husqvarna 455 Rancher Chain Saw

Page 17 of your Operator's Manual says 50:1.


Fuel/Oil Mixture

  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Most gas in the US of A contains ethanol; not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 6 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

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.

50to 60 compression on a husqavarna 455 rancher chain saw. Ring job and how hard?


455 is an X Torq engine, this means it runs very cool on the inlet side of the piston, they are quite prone to gumming the ring in if they have been used on a heavy two stroke mix, due to the designit is a full machine strip down to get to the piston, skilled man 3 hours to strip and rebuild.

Sounds like a fuel problem. Something might be expanding as the saw warms up and is cutting off the fuel or introducing an air leak. Carby may require a new kit and check the fuel line

Carb adjustmwnt requires a special tool and a tacho, the saw is set from the factory for the best emmisions, however it may need a small adjustment, this should be done by a qualified dealer, incorrect adjustments can damage the engine.

What size file to sharpen chain for 55 rancher


It depends on the chain you have installed on the chainsaw. You can look at the numbers stamped on the drive link side of the cutting chain and it should have a 2 digit number that correlates to the size.

The factory chain supplied with the #455 rancher was a .325" pitch 3/8" chain.

Here's a link to the specs for your saw with some useful info
