    I have one additional thought... is your saw under warranty?

Why does the chain brake not work?


1. What is the make and model of the saw?
2. Does it make any sound when you push the chainbrake handle towards the front (the bar and chain direction)?
3. The idea, and the way it works is that as the bar and chain get jerked upwards towards your face, your left wrist catches the chainbrake handle and pushes it forward thus engaging the chainbrake.

My chain on my 371XP husqvarna chain saw quit rotating the moter starts up and run but the chain will not turn


Sounds like the chainbrake has activated, grab the hand guard and pull it firmly fully back to the top handle, it should click when it has re set.

I Have 235 husqvarna chain saw I took the clutch cover off now i can get it back on. ring will not go over the clutch gear.


The chainbrake has activated, you need to load the brake, the best way is to clamp the cover in a vice, be carfull not to damage it, remove the hand guard from the saw, now use this as a tool to fit into the brake mechanism and load the brake, it will take a fair amount of force as there is a large compression spring under the cover.

It starts but no output


If it starts but there is a sound of resistance when you throttle up and no chain movement, then the chain brake system where it circles around the centrifugal clutch has fine sawdust accumulation. This acts as a brake even though you click the chainbrake to the run position. You have to remove the two bolts, the side cover, the chainbrake unit itself and get all that dust out so that the centrifugal clutch with the sprocket on it will spin while the chainbrake ban has just a bit of clearance. This has to be a fine clearance because it has to stop the saw in an instant, usually saving your lower leg from getting chopped into when walking along (and slipping off) a log while limbing.

My Ryobi 40cc chainsaw saw runs strong, but the chain binds and will not turn. The safety break is not engaged and the chain is not tighten to tight. I think it maybe the sprocket but it does not look...


If your chain has recently jumped off the bar while running, your chain may have "burs" on the drive links (part of the chain that rides in the bar groove). These burs will make the chain rub the inside of the rails and thus bind the chain in the groove. You can file these off with a flat file if there aren't very many, but you may need to just replace the chain. You can find files, bars, chains & sprockets for your saw at PartsBuggy.com.

For a Poulaln P3314 what position should the movable safety bar be for starting, forward toward the chain/bar, or rearward toward grip. Ted


the safety bar is chainbrake and should be in off position so the chain is free to move on the bar,,, that should be to the rear youdoit

It sounds like your chainbrake was on when you took off side cover .To get brake off place cover against saw with bar off so cover fits into brake lever and pull back on lever

Husqvarna chain brake


You'll have to release the brake with the cover off the saw. You just need to find a way to brace it well enough.
If you really can't do this, then it suggests your chainbrake is faulty, of ath the very least not adjusted right.
