It should not cause this type of problem. I suspect the diaphram in the carburetor is getting stiff and brittle. This prevents the fuel being pulled into the carburetor. If you can prime the unit and make it run, then you may need to have the carburetor rebuilt or replaced.

Remove the spark plug and dabble about 6 drops of gas into the plug hole and quickly reinstall the plug and give it a go....sometimes that will be just enough to get one to fire good enough to take off.

I run my saws dry intentionally every time I expect them to sit idle for more than a month or two. Running them dry should not cause a 'no start' condition.

SOURCE: fly wheel seemds locked up on Husqvarna 445

the flywheel does not have a brake,the clutch side has the break.if you have the chain side cover off the brake is no longer on the clutch drum.the fly wheel is on the oppiset side (starter rewind).take the starter rewind off and see if the motor will turn.if hte motor turns the problem is in the clutch side.if it doesn't the problem is in the flywheel side.the ignition coil has been known to loosen up.the screws streitch out from heat.check the air gap between the flywheel magnets and the ignition coil.should be .10 to .12 inches.if problem is on clutch side check to make sure that the springs are on between the clutch discs.they have been known to break and that does not let the chain spin on bar.any questions get me an e mail

chanes are the carb needs to be adjusted and the diaphrams in the carb need to be replaced over time they get stiff and hard from old feul, causing it to not pump feul and meter the feul properly

Try not giving any throttle when first starting. The newer trimmers are this way many times. (Maybe the newer chainsaws are this way now.)You prime the carburetor, set the choke and pull, but don't throttle until it runs for 10 or 15 seconds.

SOURCE: How to start a Husqvarna 445?

Set choke to full on. To do this depress throttle all the way down and set choke lever to on. Pull starter rapidly until saw fires . Once it has fired set to start and pull starter cord until it starts. If it doesn't start in ten - twelve pulls,reset choke for two or three pulls,then switch back to start. Pull starter cord until it starts. When it starts it wii be at full R.P.Ms. Let run for twenty to thirty seconds. then move switch to run. Hope his helps, Thanks

My Husqvarna starts but won't accelerate when you pull the trigger, acts like the brake is on but the handle is in the free position.


It may be running very rich, make sure the air filter is clean, if ok. check the spark arrestor in the muffler outlet ( if fitted ) has not carboned up, if ok, check the exhaust port is not blocked with carbon.

Engine speeding up on idle is normally due to an air leak, check the carb securing screws are tight, if you have a leaking crank seal it will be a shop repair.
