Question about Husqvarna Garden

Will not start

I own a 350 - 18" bar Husqvarna chainsaw. Yesterday it stopped right in the middle of cutting and would not start back up (yes, it did have fuel and oil). I let it cool down and changed the spark plug (verified I have spark) and cleaned the air filter. Any ideas??

Check the 4 screws at the bottom of case,between fuel tank and power head case.This model is known for them coming loose and there purpose is to hold cylinder base housing to case halves.Have at least 6 or 7 a year come through the shop for that problem.

Could be clogged exhaust, making the saw overheat but let's hope for the best!

On some markets there is a fine metal mesh underneath the output side lid (two small screws), this is to prevent sparks from coming out. This often becomes clogged. While you're at it clean the entire exhaust system. Brake cleaning fluid works good, then blow it clean with compressed air and let dry before assembling.

Best of luck with your fine saw!

    PS. Also check for other possible causes of overheating (which I think is what happened here):

    - check fuel quality making sure to use top quality 2-stroke oil for chainsaws in the correct mixture

    - check that the cylinder cooling fins are clean

    - check fuel filter is clean, check fuel line so that fuel is delivered at the carburetor in all operating positions

    - make sure you are not running the saw too lean

What husqvarna chainsaw model will be compatible for a portable alaskan sawmill?


you will loose 4 inches off bar in the clamp of your Alaskan saw mill ( I have one too and use it to make carving blocks) so your bar will need to be long enough to go thru your log plus those 4 inches , I actually have one special bar/chain that ive drilled all the way thru to mount clamp with so it cant slip , but I will caution you , saws over 19 inches require a heavy hand to operate and will require a bit more strength of the operator , this will tire you out on long cuts , if you stop in middle of log ,there will be a mark there in final cuts that will need to be sanded away , also use long drywall screws with drill to secure your track down , not nails that way it wont move easy to mess up your cut , and last but not least , watch your chain oiler , most don't work too well pointing down , and keep your chain sharpened too makes for less effort from operator

Chain is off the bar of my husqvarna 435 chainsaw


If the chain gets too loose it can come off the bar, you need to loosen the two hex nuts that clamp the bar in position then with a flat blade screwdriver turn the tension screw anticlockwise, the screw is in the middle of the slot in the bar between the two clamp nuts. You will need to wind it back a fair way to allow the chain to be put back into its guide slot on the bar, then just nip up the clamp nuts gently to stop the bar flopping about and tension the chain by turning the slotted adjuster screw clockwise until the chain is just right... you should be able to just spin the chain without too much friction and if you lift a link in the middle of the bar with your fingers it should just half lift out of the guide slot. The chain will loosen a little more as the chain heats up during use. Don't forget to fully tighten up the clamp nuts when finished. Always check that the chain is not getting too loose and take up the slack from time to time. Happy sawing !

My sears 16" chainsaw cuts to the right allthe time and has been used very little since knew is this a common problem with sears brand- CHEAP-steal in bar?


Make sure the teeth on the chain are all sharpened to the same length and the depth guages are all filed to the correct level. Check the bar is not bent and check chain tension. All these things can cause a saw you bow when cutting.

Ihave a Husquvarna chainsaw I just sharpened but when it cuts into the log it curves to the right and jams halfway through the log.


first flip the bar over that will show if the bar is bent if still cuts wrong in the same direction then the bar is good and you didn't sharpen the chain the right way

When beginning to cut, the chain will operate and then stop while I am cutting a log. Would this be a clutch problem?


Does the chain continue spinning? If no (and gasoline) bad clutch. If yes I suspect the bar and chain are binding (cutting in an arch). That is often caused by a worn bar or improperly sharpened chain. Post back (below) if the latter and I will help with that too. Post back with the model number (358.#####) and I will help with clutch replacement.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa and Good Luck. HTH

Husqvarna 345 power loss and vibrates


Replace the bar. Your bar has gone bad and that is why you are losing power. Bars are made by the chain saws to be completely oiled at all times. When the bar does not get oil the bar will start to warp and that is what will cause you lack of power when trying to due a top cut
