    By locks up I take that to mean the motor? Are you mixing the oil/gas to the correct percentage. Let me know what brand and model and I will try and help.

Saw dies after working for fifteen minutes


Could be a multitude of issues, I however suspect the carb is in need of adjustment. The chainsaw while operating under manufacturer specs runs between 900 degrees (F) and 1100 degrees (F) if the chainsaw exceeds 1100 (which after 15 minutes of use this is possible) the chainsaw quits or what is called a lean seizure, the piston swells and scores the cylinder walls. when the piston swells too much it seizes the chainsaw, after it cools down it the piston will shrink and the chainsaw will run again. Too many times and the piston will score the cylinder causing damage and space between the cylinder wall and the piston.

I have a huscavarna 435 chainsaw and after running a few minutes the chain locks up


You may have the chain tensioner set a little too tight.

Additional things to check:
  • The sprocket on the end of the guide bar is greased, and turning smoothly.
  • The chain brake is working correctly (not dragging or only partially disengaging).
  • The guide bar is straight, not bent or twisted, burr free, and the groove the chain travels in hasn't been squeezed together.
  • The chain tension is set correctly.
  • The chain oiler is functioning correctly (and you have a sufficient amount and correct type of bar oil).
  • Chain is in good condition, and the correct one for the saw. Make sure all of the links flex smoothly.
  • Chain is sharp. A dull chain will put more pressure on the guide bar because the cutting teeth aren't digging into the wood efficiently (and usually a person pushes harder on the saw when the chain is getting dull).

Hitachi CS33EB16 16" Rear Handle Chain Saw Starts a little rough - brand new. Run for 15 minutes and turn it off, if started within 3 or 4 minutes it starts right up. If I wait 7, 8 minutes or more it...


might pay to check the fuel tank breather , make sure its venting

check the ignition coil it may be going open circuit loosing its spark when it getts warm or hot , you have to wait till it cools to re-start

you will need a spark tester fitted in between ht lead and plug to check this visually when its running

check for a kill wire grounding 1st

Hot chain saw wont start


When it won't start, remove the spark plug, lay the base on engine metal with the wire on, and pull through. The spark should be blue and snappy. If nothing, try a fresh plug. If still nothing, the ignition module may be failing with heat. Try blowing out sawdust from the engine and case with compressed air to improve cooling. Does the engine 4-stroke when not cutting, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting? Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. Hope some of this helps!

Homelite chain saw quits in 15 minutes


Why are you not standing on the help desk where you purchased this? If it starts to sputter then dies It is probably a plugged fuel tank vent. When it begins to act up roll the saw so the fuel cap is up right and loosen it a little. If it smooths out and runs correctly you just vented the tank and that is where the problem lies. If it suddenly stops running with no warning it is most likely an electrical problem. If you repair either of these problems it may void your warranty. Why not make Homelite repair or replace it? If offered a refund I would not purchase any product by the same manufacturer. At best their quality control is lacking. HTH
