    Do you still need help or have you figured out the problem? Where does it leak from?

HI. IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE FUEL LINE, WHEN YOU TURN IT ON ITS SIDE THE FUEL MAY BE LEAKING AROUND THE SEAL ON THE FUEL LINE OR EVEN POPED OUT. ITS HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE. JIMBO

    I pushed and pulled on the fuel line and it re-sealed, the gas was gushing out. I will change the fuel line though, it goes from the carb through a grommet to the tank body to the filter. No grommet in the tank body, just a tight fit !

    The real thing to check is the fuel tank vent, not the fuel line to carburettor! Mine is a Husqvarna 51. The vent pipe is a rigid plastic tube, look inside the EMPTY tank.Not the flexible fuel line, but the one at the top, throttle end. Now on the outside of the saw, other side from the filler, is a plate held with two screws. Remove. Then you will see the other end of the vent tube deep down a hole, to the throttle side, of where the plate was. IT IS A POUND TO A PINCH THAT YOU HAVE LOST THE VERY,VERY SMALL WHITE POROUS END INSERT. You can carefully press in a new one, without removing the vent pipe.

Sound like you have a tank vent issue. Take it to a dealer to have sorce of leak located.

562xp leaking gas


Where does it leak gas? There is a tank vent that should only flow "in" if this vent is faulty it could leak. If the fuel cap is faulty this could be the leak. Lastly, the fuel lines could be leaking. Clean the saw and see if you can determine the location of the leak.

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.
Cheers!

I filled my 340 husqvarna chainsaw for the first time this year and it leaked gas from someshere opposite the fuel fill tank( maybe near the fuel line). It then quit leaking and just will not start. Maybe...


Opposite the fuel fill is the tank breather, and the return to tank hose if the machine has a primer, the back to tank hose fits on to an orange connection in the tank, it may have slipped off, next to it is the breather the early breather was two white pellets pressed into the tank, these will need to be removed and replaced if this is where the leak is from, the later breather is a white round assembly with a connection on the top, nothing fits to this conection, the breather can be pulled and and replaced if required.

My 385xp-husqvarna chainsaw with a 2 foot bar is leaking oil. I cut wood with it last saturday and woke up sunday morning to find a puddle of bar oil under neath of it. This has been a reaccuring event. ...


Husqvarna are reknown for this, remove the pump and pick up pipe with the filter on, slip a rubber o ring the correct size onto the hose, this will space the hose out the distance of the o ring and create a better seal against the oil pump body.
Fill the tank with petrol, this is much thinner than chain oil so you should very quickly see where the leak is.

Bar oil leaks when saw not in use


What you describe is common in many chainsaws. Try loosening then reseating the oil cap before putting her away to relieve any pressure built up in the oil tank. Check all the hose connections.

Enter the 3 digit model number of you saw; uncheck "Manuals"; Check “Illustrated parts lists ”; then search.
Serial number breakdown: 06 1500198 (Husqvarna 359)
06 = year produced (prior to 2000 there is no space and only the first digit is used (61500198 could be 86 or 96))
15 = week in 2006 it was produced (March)
00198 = 198th unit produced that week regardless of model or type
