Question about Husqvarna "Chain Saw - 16" Bar, 3 Hp

1 Answer

I have a Husqvarna 240 Chain saw. It hasn't been used that much. It is very difficult to start. When running it is a great saw. Runs well under power, nice saw for limbing. The book says to adjust carb use a T screw. No info on type of T screw etc. Can you help with type of T screw or any other info. Thank you.

Before you adjust the screw, try either, opening or closing the gap on the plug.This will adjust the timing, ever so slightly.
The other choice is to adjust the space betwen the contact, and the magneto.
It is very rare indeed, that the screws on the carb require adjustment.
That should sort it out.

Husqvarna 51 file size


Several bar and chain combinations fit the 51 model saw. If your saw runs an H46 / H80 or H81 style chain you will need a 7/32" (5.5 mm)
If you are running a H21 style chain you will need 3/16" (4.8mm)

It is running lean, they always need to run a little on the rich side free running, once the engine is loaded it will then need the excess fuel, it runs ok without the bar and chain because there is no load, start by replacing the fuel filter in the fuel tank, check the fuel hose up to the carb for signs of fuel leakage, replace if reqired, if the carb has standard adjuster screws, increase the H screw by 1/4 turn out ( anto clockwise ) this will richen the mixture.

My 435 Husqvarna chain saw runs great but on hot summer days when I turn it off and go to restart it 10 min later it will not start. had the same problem with it last summer and took it into the local...


The carburettor is getting too hot and fuel is being blocked from feeding into the engine. Make sure that the carburettor is clean and has adequate cooling while the engine is running. If you still have problems withs starting, blow the carburettor cool or use a damp cloth to cool it if starting is a problem.

Will start but will not stay running


The 455 was very prone to blocking the fuel tank vent, as a test, when the saw starts to die release the fuel cap, if the saw picks back up and runs normally it is a breather issue, the breather is pressed into the crankcase under the starter cover.

Husqvarna 240 want start at all


Sounds like the ignition module or spark plug. The ignition module is what controls the spark plug that gives your saw the firing capabilities. Before you purchase one of those, replace the spark plug and see if that works. The 240 is a newer husqvarna; so I am skeptical to say it is the ignition module. However, any new product can have a bad part on it.

Your saw may have gotten flooded and won't start. Make sure your gas mixture is 50/50 gas to mixing oil. Always use fresh gas. If you make up gas and don't use a whole gallon at a time, put some fuel stabilizer in the mixture; so it will still be fresh the next time you use it.

Runs great for 30 sec. to 1 min. then dies slowly


Is it your chain saw Husqvarna 40?

Try carb adjustments H-3/4 turn ,L-2 turns and T a little higher
I presume that compression and ignition sistem is adequate for the engine to run.Good luck
