You need to check to see if the piston is scored.pull the muffler off the saw and look inside.the piston is right there.if the piston is scored all you can do is change the piston and cylinder assembly.if the saw is new it might be under warranty.check with who you bought it from.most saws have a one year for consumer use.....let me know if this helped...................

Hard starting no fuel primer noise

Hi Jack:
You don't mention make or model so all I can do is relate 50 years of personal experience.
None of the chain saws that I have owned have had a fuel primer.
This has been (and continues to be for my Husky 266) my start routine. Current saws don't have compression release.
- prep includes fill fuel and oil tanks, check chain sharp and tension, bar tip lube.
- Ignition switch on
- Choke full on
- Throttle full and lock set.
- Pull starter cord *(266 takes 3 pulls, Homelite took 6) until engine fires. If I'm fast I can get the choke off before it dies, otherwise
- Choke off, Pull starter cord. Engine should start with 1 or 2 pulls.
Hope this helps.

372 husky oiler doesnt work does it have a plastic gear under clutch or shud i replace pump its not clogged yhanks in advance gilly

It uses a vacuum style suction method to pull oil from the reservoir to the chain bar. There is about a 3 inch piece of small black hose that gets pinched or broken and stops the oil flow. Most of time you can replace the hose without too much difficulty if you have a pair of long nose needle nose pliers. You can get the hose at your Husqvarna dealer or a hardware store that does small engine repair.

When saw is running it dies unless i undo the vented gas cap then the saw will keep going is there any other way on other than the gas cap for it to vent or help breath? on a 372 xp

The vent on the 372 is not in the cat, it is situated on the right hand rear side of the fuel tank, the early vent was a black pipe pressed into the tank with a white ( vion ) plug in it, this can be pulled out by screwing a self tapping screw into the middle of it and pulling out with a pair of pliers, the later breather is in the same place but consist of a green valve pressed into the tank, it then has a black pipe conected to it which comes up into the crankcase and sits onto a nipple under the air filter, this can be pulled out with a pair of pliers and replaced, the later breather is very prone to blocking, due to CE law and gas escape from fuel tanks the breather is very fine.

My Husqvarna 345 Chain saw leaks gas when I fill it up . It stops when I put the saw in the upright position. Jim

I suspect a bad fuel line between the primer bulb and fuel tank. If 1 is bad it is probably a good idea to replace them all.
Typical fuel system and a tip or two:
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – useful when downloading IPLs and Manuals
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week HTH

Husqvarna 372 xp gas tank not venting has a new gas cap did not work

I looked at a 2007 IPL, your saw has a separate fuel tank vent. Husky is terrible about providing a nomenclature and you may need help from your local Husky dealer to identify components.
Find your "Illustrated parts lists" here:
Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – for use with IPL
06 1500198
06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March
00198 = 198th unit Husky produced that week

New 445 husqvarna chainsaw will not start

Drain the fuel tank, look inside the tank to ensure that the fuel line inside still has a fuel filter attached to it.
Look at the on/off switch ensure that both the wires are still attached to the switch securely.
Check that the plug still has spark, if unsure replace the plug.
Check the air filter to ensure that it is clean.
Mix the gas 50:1.

Husky comp on 1st start builds up 75 lbs and wont restart

Check the reset button on the motor to see if it tripped. The motor may be overheating. Some motors have an internal breaker and they have to cool off before they restart. Also check the pressure switch. Move the switch back and forth ( on and off ) and listen for a click. If it doesn't click with low to no air pressure then the switch is bad.

Chainsaw kills when I press the throttle

My 372 xp did that and when I talked to the repair shop they even showed me. There is a fiberglass gasket that is used to mount the carburetor to the engine. I have no idea on how this happens, but I saw it with my own eyes. The gasket had actually folded over. They replaced it with a rubber one and have had no problem since. The saw was hard to start, would run as long as I didn't try to cut anything and when I did it would open up and then die. I could be giving wrong information, but that sounds exactly like the problem I was having.
