Easy enough to test which position is correct. With the saw not running of course, Try each position the one where the chain moves freely is the correct position. Most likely on this saw it will away from the bar (rearward).

When cutting with saw sthil 026 it shoots sparks from the bar or chain nothing seems to b blocking bar???


First, don't cut nails as you will dull the blade in seconds. Is the safety anti-kickback bar shoved into position. That applies a chain brake that can spark if you can get the engine started with it engaged. Other than that, inspect for the chain running into stuff it should not. Assuming you have put oil in the chain bar reservoir and pumped the pump a few times to get some pre-lube on the chain & bar;.

Need to put a new chain on a Husqvara 235 14 inch chain saw?


Check that the chain brake is in disengaged position by
moving the front hand guard towards the front handle.
Remove the bar nuts and remove the clutch cover (chain
brake). Take off the transportation ring.
Fit the bar over the bar bolts. Place the bar in its rearmost
position. Place the chain over the drive sprocket locate it in
the groove on the bar. Begin on the top edge of the bar.

Make sure that the edges of the cutting links are facing
forward on the top edge of the bar.
Fit the clutch cover (chain brake) and locate the chain
adjuster pin in the cut-out in the bar. Check that the drive
links of the chain fit correctly on the drive sprocket and that
the chain is in the groove on the bar. Tighten the bar nuts
finger-tight.
Tension the chain by turning the chain tensioning screw
clockwise using the combination spanner. The chain
should be tensioned until it does not sag from the
underside of the bar.
The chain is correctly tensioned when it does not sag from
the underside of the bar, but can still be turned easily by
hand. Hold up the bar tip and tighten the bar nuts with the
combination spanner.
When fitting a new chain, the chain tension has to be
checked frequently until the chain is run-in. Check the
chain tension regularly. A correctly tensioned chain
ensures good cutting performance and long life.

What are the steps to getting the chain saw started and idling? What are next steps to cut tree limbs and oil the chain? This chain saw was given to me without a manual.


If you are a complete novice you should seek some training before attempting to use the machine, as you do not say what model this is we will go through basic starting procedures, fill the fuel tank with fresh fuel mixed with two stroke oil at 25-1, fill the chain oil tank with a non fling chain oil, switch the ignition switch to on, pull the choke fully out, push in the deco valve if fitted, place the machine on the ground, with the tip of the bar away from any obstructions, put your right foot through the back handle to hold the saw down, place your straightened left arm and hand onto the top handle again to hold the machine, now with your right hand crank the engine until it fires once, at this point push the choke fully back in, crank the engine once again until it fires up, flick the trigger to dissengage the part throttle , the machine should now idle.
Be carefull.

Husqvarna chainsaw 235e starts but the chain won't move. Maybe the brake is stuck??


Does the brake seem to 'snap-over' like it should? Pull it back to release position, and remove the drive cover. Check the entire brake for debris accumulation or bent/damaged brake band. Check the chain to see if it is being oiled. Remove the bar/chain and clean the entire assembly, particularly the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar. Start the engine and watch for oil oozing out of the small side port where the bar fits. If ok, reassemble the bar/chain. If no oil comes out, investigate the oil pump, lines, and filter/valve in the oil tank. Mount the side cover, but leave the fasteners finger tight. (The chain teeth cut toward you on the bottom run) Tighten the chain until the lower run comes up to the bar, but can still be turned by hand. Tighten the fasteners and recheck the tension. Trip the chain brake and make sure it locks the chain, then release it and make sure it turns freely. Check the chain oiling by running the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should leave a thin line of oil on the board. Hope this helps!

My 455 rancher runs well but loses power when cutting to the point of the chain not turning at all and smoke coming from the clutch area. I have only used the saw for about 3 hours.I had an earlier problem...


All things are possible KJ;
Only an authorized dealer can determine whether the wrong clutch or clutch cover are installed (I do not mean Lowes). I suggest a trip to your local dealer any weekday between 1300 and 1500. Someone that can see and touch this saw is required IMO.

Pages 22 and 23 (Starting and Stopping) also discuss the chain brake. Did you read this in your manual? With the engine off, push the forward most handle forward did it click when the brake engages? If no, the chain brake is probably engaged. Pull it aft; did it click when it locks in the released position. Move it forward and aft a few times, make it click in each position. Was it released?

I fear the brake is engaged and you have over heated and severely abraded your clutch. The drag of the engaged brake and the chain on the log you are cutting overcame the ability if the clutch. I hope I am wrong. If this is true a local dealer can repair it but it probably will not be covered by warranty. If purchased from Lowes you will not be a priority at his facility but he should be willing to repair it. If not I suggest you contact Husqvarna here:

Races will not idle down so the chain will not turn


Your not clear on the saw model or manufacturer. Is the throttle in the start position (Fast idle)? Is the chain brake engaged (Must be disengaged before chain will turn)? IMO the chain brake should not be activated before start, (hard on clutch) but may save your leg if you drop start! I start mine on the ground with right foot in rear handle with the brake disengaged.

Ryobi pcn 4040 chain saw


I have the same model chainsaw with the same fault. The brake is not releasing when the brake handle is pulled right back. I can only run mine if the brake handle is pulled back to the main handle with a tyrap - defeats the object of the auto-brake completely. Design fault I reckon.
