Husqvarna T435 chain gets loose after few cuts


New chain does loosen after a few cuts. Retension and you should be ok after that if tensioned properly. Check that it is oiling properly by giving it a free runand you should get a line of oil spraying off. Hope this helps

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.

Husqvarna Chainsaw Chain stopped turning


Have you take the chain brake off..? This is a band which grips the clutch drum and must be disengaged before use.

Check chain tension, this shouldn't be too tight.

Did you also put chain oil in the oil tank.?

New Homelite. Cut great for an hour, then the chain wouldn't grip or cut. Chain was loose so I tightened but still doesn't cut- just


The blade is no longer sharp, something not unusual after about an hour of cutting. How long a blade stays sharp depends on what type of wood you're cutting, whether the blade contacted the ground or anything other than wood at any time, and how hard you are working the bar through the wood. If you are cutting hardwood or something like railroad ties the lifespan of the blade is greatly reduced. You can easily sharpen the blade with a hand file or dremel tool with a chain saw blade kit on it or have the blade sharpened. Best practice is to have one or two extra blades so you can change them as they become dull.

My chainsaw throws the chain off every couple of cuts wont stay on


Release the chain brake, then remove the bar and chain. Lay the chain out on a flat surface and look for damaged links, or sideways bending of the chain. Replace the chain if you find any such damage. Clean the engine surface where the bar fits to, then start the engine--oil should ooze out of the small port there. If ok, then clean the small oil passages that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge of the bar. Re-assemble the bar and new chain (if required)--tighten the chain adjuster until the chain just comes up to the lower bar, but not so tight that you can't turn the chain by hand. Tighten the bar mounting hardware and recheck the chain tension again. The chain teeth must be properly sharpened at a consistent angle to assure rapid cutting which keeps the chain heat down. With a new chain, recheck the tension every so often as the chain will initially stretch when used. Test the chain oiling by running the bar tip near some cardboard at speed for a moment or so--it should throw off a thin line of oil. There should be an oil-volume adjustment screw on the engine to achieve this. Check the sawdust coming from the cut--it should be small chips and curls if the teeth are sharp, but it will be a fine dust if they become dull. Hope this helps!

Relatively new (used once) 45cc petrol chainsaw starts fine but when you use the throttle to make the chain go round it does so slowly before cutting out. There is plenty of fuel and plenty of chain oil


Make sure the chain oil is reaching the chain. Can you turn the chain by hand fairly easily? If not, then the chain tension should be adjusted--loosen the drive cover fasteners enough to allow the bar to move up and down somewhat. Turn the chain adjuster screw CCW so that the chain can be moved by hand, but the chain should not droop from the lower bar edge. Re-tighten the cover fasteners and recheck the chain tension. If ok, try to run the saw again--it should run at full speed, 4-stroking lightly, but immediately 2-stroking when cutting. Make sure the fuel mix is fresh using a modern synthetic saw oil and shaking the container thoroughly each time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Hope that some of this helps!

My chainsaw does not cut although the chin is brand new, the direction of chain is correct also.


If the chain is turning, it has to cut. Make sure the cutting edge of the teeth are coming toward you on the lower run of chain. Good luck!

I have a poulan micro s25d 33ccm super xxv deluxe model chainsaw and am wondering how much slack should be in a brand new chain that I just put on and have used once?


As to the proper amount of slack in the chain, new or otherwise, is you should only be able to left the chain from the center of the top bar, so that you can only see the drive tooth of one (1) of the links.

Now with a new chain, the trick is to check the slack after the first tank of gas has been consumed, as new chains tend to "relax/stretch" after being put into service.

But with that being said, I always check the chain at each fueling and filling of the bar lube tank too. Better to be safe and get the maximum performance from your chainsaw, and there is no better way than to keep everything in proper working order.

A good rule of thumb is to:
  1. check and readjust/tighten the bar/chain after the fuel tank runs out of gas/oil mix. (wait for the chain/bar to cool before grabbing it with your bare hands!)
  2. Refill the bar/chain oil
  3. Refuel the chainsaw with the proper gas/oil mix, (typically 40:1)
  4. I always add fuel stabilizer to my fuel tank after I'm done using it for the day (who knows when you'll use it again!)
  5. Take a hand file and give the cutting chain a quick "touch up" sharpening before putting it away.
If you follow these steps, you'll always have a working chainsaw, ready and sharp enough to cut when you need it, without any surprizes, etc.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Poulan Pro 42cc Just Won't Cut It


The chain is directional, only cuts one way. If a new chain won't cut, it must be on backwards.
