SOURCE: bar oiling problem

Just a thought: Is it cold where you are? At this saw mill where it is my job to keep chain saws running, learned years ago that you cannot use "bar oil" in winter. Need thinner oil, like motor oil. ....preferably a "non-detergent" motor oil, plain 30-weight is OK, HD30W will work, but the HD part causes the chain to stretch more so than standard bar oil. The bar oil literally is so thick in cold that it stripped the worm gear out of a Poulan Pro oil pump (plastic gear, anyways, wasn't much to begin with.) But thought you may want to try thinner oil, if it is cold where you are. Oh yea we also have 2-Husqvarna 359's with 20-inch bar, and use thinner oil in winter. Our Husqvarnas have an oil adjuster located on bottom, on clutch side. Straight slot screw adjustment.

SOURCE: oil does not lube chain on my chain saw, huqvarna, any ideas

It appears from the IPL and OM this saw does not have an adjustable oiler.
OM example here (2005 - may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/HOUS/HOUS2005/HOUS2005_O0501001.pdf
IPL example here (2005 - may not be your saw):
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/usa/2005/I05000/I0501901.pdf

I know you have done this, please verify whether or not you get the ooze with the saw running.
Oil System Plugged:

  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL). I am seeing many non-adjustable oilers malfunctions, please contact Husky, there may be an unannounced repair.

If you try the repair yourself it has an outboard clutch (oiler behind it), this will help with removal. Your IPL is also beneficial.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdqkIuVNUQc
  1. Check the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed. Poulan (Craftsman, Jonsered, Husky) clutch removal tool part number 530031112 if needed, is under $5 from many sources (look at the visible area between the weights if 2 small round sockets are visible you need the tool).
  2. There are metal piston stops available, when square (almost never) with the piston top these work well, if not square they have been known to punch through the piston. I suggest a length of nylon rope (nothing left behind) be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. Everyone I have ever removed had a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).

Why does the chain keeps tightening


Has it ever come off while using it? If so, there may be burrs on the drive teeth making the chain wider than the bar opening, also if there is no oil getting to chain while operating chain could bind from heat, check sprocket on the bar tip for blockage and inspect the clutch bearing.

Chain not oiling


Remove bar and chain, run the saw to see if its oiling without the bar on.
If still not oiling, remove the clutch, clutch drum and check the plastic thread on the oil worm.
Also check for blockages in the pipe from the oil pump that feeds the bar.
Lastly check the oil pump is actually functioning properly.

Hi i have a Husqvarna 445 18" 45.7cc the automatic


Verify you have oil in the oil fill tank. Try cleaning inside the drive sprocket cover. Release the chain tension and carefully dislodge the bar and chain assembly. Clean sawdust and debris from behind and inside the housing and behind the bar. Use a wisker wire to clean the through ports and channels on bar( these ports are the path that the oil travels to the drag groove that the drive links on the chain uses to pull the oil to the tip of the bar).
Please refer to this link below for your saw maintenance-

If this does not correct the problem contact Husqvarna customer service or a local service repair.

Clutch slipping?


Probably, the interior of the clutch was soaked with oil. Try washing it out with spray carburetor cleaner by removing the cover, chain, and bar. Unless the clutch surfaces were burned from any slipping that occurred, that should restore the clutch. When reassembling, make sure you can move the tightened chain by hand. Check for proper oiling, by running the bar tip at speed in front of a piece of cardboard for several moments-- it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!

I have a Husqvarna 445 chain saw and it does not get enough oil to the bar and chain. I have to stop saw after about 10 minutes of cutting because it freezes the chain so I remove bar and chain clean out...


Your Manual nor IPL mention an oiler adjustment..
445 IPL (may not be your saw)
Is this the original bar? A longer bar requires more oil and your saw is not equipped to supply it.
http://weborder.husqvarna.com/order_static/doc/USA/2007/I07000/I0701086.pdf
Detail B (Clutch/Drum/Oiler)
We are seeing many of these does not oil/oils to much problems with these no adjustment models. I recommend you contact Husqvarna, there may be an unannounced recall/repair. If they aren't willing to help you consider contacting your Atourney General and the BBB.
