Sounds like the saw is running lean. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Check the condition of the fuel lines and that the fasteners on the carburetor are tight. If all ok, turn the 'L' and 'H' jet needles on the carburetor CW to stops (lightly), then back out each 1-1/2 turns CCW. This is a basic setting and the engine should start and run. Allow the engine to warm up, pull the throttle full on, and adjust H CW until the engine starts to speed up, but continues to 4-stroke. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. This produces the most power and least heat. Allow to idle and adjust L CW until the engine runs fairly well, yet will allow it to 'follow the throttle'. Set the idle speed screw til the chain stops moving, but keeps the engine running. Hope this helps!

How to check for proper chain tension husqvana 450e


You should be able to move the chain with your hands, but not too easily. Please wear gloves when doing this. Also, if you pull the chain away from the bar at the middle of the bar, there should be no more than 1/8" between the bar and chain.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Can i use any 2 stroke oil in my husqvana

Yes, as long as it is a good quality oil. Some manufacturers recommend less oil in the fuel if you use their brand of oil, but using a branded make will not be detrimental unless it is a cheap make. Just watch te amount of smoke coming from the exhaust, it should not be excessive but should also just be visible in the sunlight.

My chain keeps freezing up on me and its brand new. how do I fix tha t on my husqvana 16 inch

Turn the chain brake off, then remove the bar and chain. Clean the side of the engine where the bar fits to, start the engine and observe whether the small oil port on the engine oozes out oil. If nothing and the oil tank is filled, put the saw back together and take it back to the seller for warranty repair of the oil pumping system or a fresh saw in exchange. Hope this helps!

Engine is probably starving for fuel. Check the filter inside the fuel tank on the end of the fuel pickup. Also check the pulse diaphragme for perforation. check the fuel for water too. Lastly, if all these are ok, try altering the main mixture screw to make the engine run a little more rich.

Threads in barrel that hold exaust bolts have been stripped,husqvana 350 chainsaw,would be grateful for advice.

Take it to a local chainsaw seller/mechanic. They will put in a threaded insert (Heli-coil) for less than the price of the tools required for you to do it. Call local saw shops for an estimate. Should be $10±. HTH

Engine cuts out

You probably have a fuel line that is cracked or has a hole in it of some sort. You should be able to take off the top cover and inspect these lines. If this is the problem, replace with new line & should work just fine. Let me know how it goes.
