    Your OM is a good place to start. I do not see a model number or I would try to find one for you. In the absence of of an OM this may help.

Does the chain move when the motor is started? Make sure the chain doesn't droop from the lower side of the bar and the teeth cut toward you on the bottom side. The chain should not be so tight that you can't move it by hand. Run the saw for a few moments with the tip near a piece of cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the cardboard. Make sure that the chain is properly sharpened and cuts without undue effort. Hope this helps!

I have a huscavarna 435 chainsaw and after running a few minutes the chain locks up


You may have the chain tensioner set a little too tight.

Additional things to check:
  • The sprocket on the end of the guide bar is greased, and turning smoothly.
  • The chain brake is working correctly (not dragging or only partially disengaging).
  • The guide bar is straight, not bent or twisted, burr free, and the groove the chain travels in hasn't been squeezed together.
  • The chain tension is set correctly.
  • The chain oiler is functioning correctly (and you have a sufficient amount and correct type of bar oil).
  • Chain is in good condition, and the correct one for the saw. Make sure all of the links flex smoothly.
  • Chain is sharp. A dull chain will put more pressure on the guide bar because the cutting teeth aren't digging into the wood efficiently (and usually a person pushes harder on the saw when the chain is getting dull).

Husqvarna 50 chain keeps coming off


Are you adjusting the chain tension correctly?? Make sure the bar in installed correctly with the tension adjustment pin in the appropriate hole. Elevate the tip of the guide bar while adjusting the chain adjustment screw until the chain is snug but not tight. Then tighten the bar bolts without lowering the tip of the bar. Also ensure the drive links are engaging the sprocket correctly.

If the chain is adjusted correctly and the problem still exists, remove the sprocket side cover, bar and chain and inspect the sprocket for extreme wear. Once the sprocket is worn excessively it won't want to engage the drive links of the chain correctly which could be the source of the problem. If so, replace both the sprocket and the chain because the excess wear of the sprocket could have damaged the drive links of the chain and putting an old worn chain back on with a new sprocket will cause the new sprocket to begin wearing prematurely.

I tookthe chain cover off of my homelite ut10560 and a small pin fell out of it. Now i dont know where it goes. any help?? thanks!!!


The chain bar usually sits on a pin to position it in place on a chainsaw. Is yours there? If it is and the bar appears to be installed correctly, does the chain saw work as normal?

I sharpend my chain and filed and flip the bar around. And it still want cut. Do I need a new bar and chain?


I dont me to be rude but two things spring to mind, firstly have you put the chain on backwards? the chain on the top of the bat should have the sharp edge facing away from the saw ( turns clockwise as you look at it from the side of the saw ) and secondly have you sharpened it correctly ( right angles, and taken the depth gauges down to the correct hight ) there should be no need to replace the guide bar, at worst a new chain will do, let me know if you need to know more about chain sharpening.

After new clutch sprocket &good bar &chain chain r bar moves prematuely and chain comes off bar nuts r tight


have you made sure that chain pitch and gauge are the same as the sprocket pitch pitches can be 3/8 lo pro 0.50 gauge

.325 x 0.50 gauge , .325 x 0.58 gauge

3/8 std x 0.50 or 3/8 x 0.58 gauge or 3/8 x 0.63 gauge

you could even have the correct drum but wrong rim sprocket on it

worst case is you could have mismatch bar and chain

make sure that bar adjjuster assy is working correctly

recheck chain / sprocket pitches and bar pitch and groove
gauge

be sure that you fitted chain to rim on sprocket correctly when you fitted bar and chain?

is the clutch cover pulling down tight ?

have a look and let me know if and what you find

cheers paul

No real problem other than no manual. I have adjusted the chain twice since using it but have never known the correct play required for optimum operation. A couple of trys have adjusted the chain to tight...


Well it looks to me like you know how to tighten it. How hard to tighten it depends on the type of bar. If it is a roller bar you can snug it up pretty good.
If it isnt then you tighten it until the bottom of the chain just fits in the groove.
Remember always lift the tip of the bar when you tighten the locking nuts.

My first chainsaw...am seeking general advice on product use etc


Ok to get correct tension on chain, basically loosen it a little until the chain on the underside of the bar is hanging a little... Now start tightening it up again. Basically you want the chain (the main part of each link) to be just touching the the underside of the bar. This will give correct tension... Note that chain does expand as it heats up so it may loose tension... so this is perhaps best done when the saw and chain has warmed a little. Also, new chain will stretch a little naturally so check tension each tme you use the saw.

If you do not know hoe to sharpen a chain properly, it is best to get someone else to sharpen it, or buy a new chain... Eventually all chains will need to be replaced because they can only be sharpened so many times before the cutting teeth become too small to work effectively or safely.

As for oil, if it is an electric chain saw, you only need chain/bar oil. Any good name branded bar/chain oil designed for chainsaws will work well.

Please rate my solution on FixYa!
Thanks.
