Hi i have a Husqvarna 445 18" 45.7cc the automatic


Verify you have oil in the oil fill tank. Try cleaning inside the drive sprocket cover. Release the chain tension and carefully dislodge the bar and chain assembly. Clean sawdust and debris from behind and inside the housing and behind the bar. Use a wisker wire to clean the through ports and channels on bar( these ports are the path that the oil travels to the drag groove that the drive links on the chain uses to pull the oil to the tip of the bar).
Please refer to this link below for your saw maintenance-

If this does not correct the problem contact Husqvarna customer service or a local service repair.

My saw is two weeks old it uses 3 tanks of bar&chain oil to 1 tank of gas is there a adjustment for setting?


Take the bar and chain off and clean both thourghly. Use a small blade screwdriver to scrape built up saw dust,dirt woodchips or whatever from bar track and make sure both are in good shape. The oil port should be located by bar alignment pin.Brush it clean and if you have access to compressed air then blow out to help clear port. Turn your saw upside down and locate screw that has directional arrow to + or - to add or subtract amount of oil flow.
I would start and run saw with bar and chain installed and properly tensioned. Let saw warm up then hold saw about one inch above clean piece of wood and run at full throttle for 30 seconds.There should be a light coating of oil on board. If you have too much oil then turn screw in direction on - until you get it set where you want it. There should be a light coating of oil on chain and bar at all times.
I mostly use stihl saws and run about 1 1/2 tanks of gas per tank of oil and this works great for me. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

The saw is a 385xp. We have changed bars and chains numerous times. When sawing the bar gets hot enough to fry an egg and the chain stretches out. Onlynable to saw a minute or teo at the time. bar gets...


Overheating the chain/bar is usually caused by insufficient oil getting to the chain, but can be caused by the chain being too tight to begin with (you should be able to turn the chain by hand), grit in the chain groove, or a poorly sharpened chain. The saw has an oil volume adjustment screw on the lower part of the case near the chain return area. Turning it CCW should increase oil flow. Oil volume can be judged by running the saw tip at speed near some cardboard for a moment--it should throw off a thin line of oil. Chain sharpening condition can be judged by the sawdust residue coming from the cut--if a powder-like material, the teeth are not sharp or are improperly filed. You should not have to bear down excessively on the saw to make it cut quickly. Hope some of this helps!

Chain oil tank full, feed channel behind guide plate clear, but no oil going to chain when running. This is a homelite 16.


There should be a oil adjusting screw on the bottom of your saw next to the bar beside the oil tank. Some models actually has the screw inside the tank. Drain the tank to make sure there isn't any debris clogging the hole where the oil feeds to the bar.

One way to check to see if the bar is oiling is:

1. Start the saw
2. Put a board, piece of cardboard or an uncolored old shirt in front of the bar
3. Press the trigger on the saw to allow the chain to circulate around the bar.
4. While keeping constant pressure on the trigger, look to see if there is a vertical line of oil on the piece of material you have placed on front of the bar. If the saw is oiling you will have a vertical line. If not adjust the oil set screw accordingly.

No oil geting to the chain


Youre oiler may be bad. Does it oil without the bar and chain? Is there oil in it? Maybe the pickup tube is clogged, it's easy to take apart to see.

Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 3 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

Describe your Husqvarna "Chain Saw -


Remove the spark plug and test for spark. If ok, try some starting fluid in the plug hole, install the plug, and try to start. If it runs a short time, it is not getting fuel. Check fuel lines including inside the tank. Clean or replace the air filter. If this saw is fairly old, the carburetor probably needs a re-kit and cleaning. Does it have good compression? Check the muffler for plugging. Make sure the fuel/oil mix is fresh. Good luck!

I have a Poulan 20" chain saw that keeps leaking out the bar oil every time I put it in the container and store it. What causes this and can it be fixed by myself?


Most chainsaws have an adjustment for bar oiling and its quite normal for a chainsaw that is stored for long periods of time (weeks or even days) to leak out the bar oil. This is normal for chainsaws stored for several weeks or more.

Some of it may be reduced by adjusting the rate of flow for the bar oiler, read your manual carefully before attempting to adjust it. Adjust to too slow a flow rate will have adverse effects on performance and can lead to premature chain or bar failure.

Recommend that if you are going to store your chainsaw for more than a couple of weeks, drain the bar oil back out if it into a container (strain it through a paper towel before returning to your bar oil can). Also, you really should drain almost all the fuel and then run it until it shuts off if you are storing it for a month or more.

No bar oil coming out since new !!!!!!!!! is there a setting screw somewhere??????


I would remove chain and bar reinstall cover (For safety). start and run. oil should feed out into bar area, If nothing at all, return it for a new one, If you have oil check to make sure the bar has a matching hole where the oil feeds out. Newer saws dont oil much at all due to EPA standards it would be nice to have an old manual pump on some but I just carry a squirt bottle for the very large cuts I do and when I run into water.
Most have removed the adjustment screw that used to be on the bottom or clutch side of saw.
look for a trace amount on a smooth surface not alot like 10 years ago.
Good luck.

What you are describing sounds like the power is being interrupted somewhere. In my experience, this is usually casued by a bad switch. Try replacing the trigger switch.
