SOURCE: engine smoke when chain brake on

It sounds like the band is too tight and the smoke is coming from a burning clutch. You need to get your owners manual and loosen the band before you burn the parts up.

SOURCE: starts but chain wont turn. and white smoke comes

Grasp the forward most upper handle (hand guard), move it forward, did it click? If no the brake is released. Pull it aft until the brake latches open (clicks), may require some grunt at rear extreme.
Remove the clutch cover, bar and chain. Start the saw, does it still smoke? Yes post back below, no reassemble your saw, ensure the brake is open. Start teh saw. Smoke? If yes post back below.

SOURCE: husqvana 65 chain saw will rev fully when idle but

Sounds like the saw is running lean. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines and that the fasteners on the carburetor are tight. If all ok, turn the 'L' and 'H' jet needles on the carburetor CW to stops (lightly), then back out each 1-1/2 turns CCW. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Allow the engine to warm up, pull the throttle full on, and adjust H CW until the engine starts to speed up, but continues to 4-stroke. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This produces the most power and least heat. Allow to idle and adjust L CW until the engine runs fairly well, yet will allow it to 'follow the throttle'. Set the idle speed screw til the chain stops moving, but keeps the engine running. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: after new clutch sprocket &good bar &chain

have you made sure that chain pitch and gauge are the same as the sprocket pitch pitches can be 3/8 lo pro 0.50 gauge

.325 x 0.50 gauge , .325 x 0.58 gauge

3/8 std x 0.50 or 3/8 x 0.58 gauge or 3/8 x 0.63 gauge

you could even have the correct drum but wrong rim sprocket on it

worst case is you could have mismatch bar and chain

make sure that bar adjjuster assy is working correctly

recheck chain / sprocket pitches and bar pitch and groove
gauge

be sure that you fitted chain to rim on sprocket correctly when you fitted bar and chain?

is the clutch cover pulling down tight ?

have a look and let me know if and what you find

cheers paul

SOURCE: After you install bar,chain,and brake cover(tightened)the chain wont turn.

Tighten the adjusting screw with the two nuts loose but snugon the middle of the chain on the top of the bar. Tighten the chain screw until the chain is loose enough to raise the chain up about 1/2 inch then tighten the mounting nuts tight. Then see if it is ok.

There is a number of ways to re load the brake, you can either remove the clutch and sprocket, the brake will then go back onto the saw enabling you to use the hand guard on the saw to load the brake ( to remove the clutch, there are two cut a ways in the clutch centre designed to enter a flat screw driver into, then strike with a suitable hammer to remove, it is a left hand thread ) or you can remove the hand guard from the saw and use this as a tool to re load the brake, or you can clamp the cover in a vice ( be carefull not to damage the cover ) then use a strudy pair of pliers or grips in the three legged loading mechanism and turn it to load the brake.

How to check for proper chain tension husqvana 450e


Hi,

You should be able to move the chain with your hands, but not too easily. Please wear gloves when doing this. Also, if you pull the chain away from the bar at the middle of the bar, there should be no more than 1/8" between the bar and chain.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Can i use any 2 stroke oil in my husqvana


Yes, as long as it is a good quality oil. Some manufacturers recommend less oil in the fuel if you use their brand of oil, but using a branded make will not be detrimental unless it is a cheap make. Just watch te amount of smoke coming from the exhaust, it should not be excessive but should also just be visible in the sunlight.

If the brake has been entirely removed, then check the lubrication and tension of the chain--you should be able to turn the chain by hand fairly easily. If it looks dry with little or no oil, remove the bar and chain. Clean the side of the engine case where the bar fits to, then start the engine. Oil should ooze out of the side port. If nothing, then the oil pump, oil line, or filter in the tank may need service. If ok, then clean the bar drive-end oil passages--especially the two small holes that feed oil from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge. When back together, run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard for a couple of moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. There should be a volume adjustment screw head under the case near the chain return area--turn it CW to decrease volume. Hope this helps!

My chain keeps freezing up on me and its brand new. how do I fix tha t on my husqvana 16 inch


Turn the chain brake off, then remove the bar and chain. Clean the side of the engine where the bar fits to, start the engine and observe whether the small oil port on the engine oozes out oil. If nothing and the oil tank is filled, put the saw back together and take it back to the seller for warranty repair of the oil pumping system or a fresh saw in exchange. Hope this helps!

The engine starts but the chain does not move even when the throttle is applied and then it starts to smoke the whine does not sound like it has full power either


Can you move the chain by hand? If not, the chain brake may be set or damaged so that the chain cannot move. Is the chain adjusted extremely tight? Is bar oil getting to the chain? The smoke is probably coming from the clutch which is trying to drive the chain. The chain should be adjusted so that the chain just comes up to the lower bar edge, but allows free turning of the chain by hand. Get back to us if you need further help.

Clutch cover smoking


Remove the bar and chain and wash out the clutch internals with spray carburetor cleaner. Clean the side of the engine case, start the engine and watch for oil oozing out of the side port. Clean the bar drive-end small oil passages that go out to the chain groove on each side and clean the entire chain groove. If oil came out of the engine side port ok, then re-assemble the bar and chain, but leave the cover fasteners only finger tight. Tighten the chain so that the chain comes up to the bar, but not so tight that the chain can't be pulled by hand. Tighten the cover fasteners and recheck the chain tension. Make sure the chain teeth cut toward you on the bottom run and that the chain is properly sharpened. Hope this helps!
